Does Flexera agent supports win 10 build 19041?

(4) Replies

Yes.  Flexera has no constraints around the build versions of Windows 10.  If you look at the System Requirements, it simply states that the agent is compatible with Windows 10.

I agree with "Captain Kirk"'s comments: Windows 10 Build 19041 - also named "Windows 10 Version 2004" or "20H1" - has been released in May 2020. This is the ninth major Windows 10 update. Major new features of this release are summarized in a Wikipedia article.

If you already have Windows 10 Version 1909 installed, Version 2004 is now offered as an optional "Feature Update" when you open the "Windows Update" dialog.

Offline installers for upgrading Windows 10 Version 10 Build 1909 to Version 2004 (KB4566782) can be downloaded from Microsoft, too.

In the FNMS System Requirements, it is documented that the FNMS Windows agent supports all versions of Windows 7, 8 and 10. The Windows agent is a 32 bit application running both on 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows. It is designed to have as little dependencies on Windows components as possible. Generally, for new Windows builds you should not expect any compatibility issues when using the latest FNMS agent release.

To confirm, after upgrading a clean Windows 10 Version 1909 Workstation Enterprise system to Windows 10 Version 2004, I installed and ran the latest Flexera FNMS 2020 R1 Windows agent on the system without any issues.

You can find the agent LOG file attached to this contribution.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. So moving forward shall we will consider Flexera to have zero day support for Win10 updates and patches ? It will support right away when releases by MSFT ?

Hi Chirag,

For Windows 10: Generally, yes. As Flexera claims to fully support Windows 10 including all future updates and patches, problems related to the Flexera Agent and a Windows 10 release are highly unlikely.

There have been minor issues with the Flexera agent on Windows in the past. However, problems related to the Flexera Agent and a Windows release have always been addressed very quickly.
