How do you know if you already have Windows-10 Anniversary Update on your PC.. ?

If you don’t receive the Anniversary Update automatically go to Start > Settings > Update & security > Windows Update, and then click Check for updates. This should force the Anniversary Update for your PC

This didn't work for me (I wanted to play forza 6 apex, which also needs it). You will know immediately if you don't have the update as I didn't as it flat out refuses to let you download the game (the button is greyed out) if you don't have it (way to force your updates on us MS). On the game page it gives you a link to follow to download the update installer manually, it isn't displaying anymore on mine since I installed it but I just downloaded the installer and ran it, following the steps. It takes over an hour so don't do it when you need to use the PC.

In my case no matter how many times I checked for updates it kept reporting none available, so I had to force the update this way. Microsoft must be incredibly slow at sending these updates out as my other PC hasn't received it either, you would really think they would be more on the ball with it when such high profile games in the store require it to even install!

shame the pc port is a bit sucky...

also you should all look at Halo Online. its a free standalone halo game getting frequent updates. all it needs is more players!

can't find it, is it available in the uk?

Open the store and manually search for Halo Forge Bundle

could be a stupid question but the store page is very unspecific - is forge just the level editor, or can you actually play those levels online against people without owning a copy of halo 5 ?

Why are they forcing you to have that absolute garbage AU update , It has broken two laptops of mine which i had to completely reinstall windows 8.1 on
And made my gaming rig completely unusable with the random freezes.

There is no way i am going to the AU Update . I have Deferred updates and completely blocked the windows update service from running .
Shame really as i wouldn't mind trying Halo out to be fair

Your pc will randomly freeze, Menu`s will become unresponsive,Games will lag and some will be forced to only use 60FPS even though the PC is capable of running the game at 10 times as many.
Some hard drives will appear to have failed but they have not thats is just the operating system bugging out as when you revert (roll back ) your drives suddenly work again.

Seriously stay well away from the AU update . it is beyond awful,How they can release it is completely crazy , Certainly not fit for purpose .

You need Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant.

Click on "Update Now". That will tell you if an update needs to be applied.

Windows keys -> type "winver" -> press enter -> Anniversary update is version 1607

Strange, I have updated my laptop, nuc, gaming pc, work pc, work laptop. The only problem I have seen so far (in the last month or so) is that my pptp tunnel doesn't let me select connect or disconnect every time and I have to close and re-open it.

Gaming, and general use has worked fine since, along with steam in home streaming and nvidia streaming to my shield.

I have had no worries about suggesting that family and friends update to it.

That update has worked sweet on all my systems, I don't see what the problem is?

Of course it worked, they asked how to find out what version they on. Winver shows that

Ah my bad! It didn't show the whole quoted conversation! I thought it meant it was a quicker way to upgrade to anniversary edition. Sorry

There's a glitch with the drive controllers that maxes out disk activity. This causes the whole PC to slow down and then start up again. Not sure what causes it but the issue is directly related to the anniversary update.

From the windows store on your pc/laptop, just search: Halo 5: Forge bundle

links here don't work.....

A quick google search along the lines of "microsoft anniversary update breaking pc`s" should help. So much so that consumer watchdog WHICH has called for Microsoft to reimburse people. I find it hard to believe you have not seen any of the thousands of complaints and loads and loads of publications about it.

​As I said all of my systems updated perfectly fine, no problems at all. So why would I be Google going to fix a fault that hasn't appeared on my system. LOL

And get reimbursement for what most people got the operating system for free and the update, plus it says in pretty much all operating systems T&C s that Microsoft can't be held liable from any issues and you agree to that when you click next past the T&C s to install it, so good luck with that. has
