Please subscribe to this article as it will be updated if any changes in the process develop. 

Note: Windows 10 LTSB Builds do not have monthly released Software Updates as outlined in Microsoft's FAQ where it reads: Microsoft never publishes feature updates through Windows Update on devices that run Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB.

  • New versions of LTSB are generally released every 2–3 years and organizations can choose to install them as in-place upgrades or even skip releases over a 10-year life cycle. However, the Windows 10 LTSB 2015 was the initial release of build 1507; however, Microsoft released build 1607 in 2016 as a revision of the initial release of updates.
  • PMImport Vendor listing Windows 10 LTSB are for deploying non-feature related updates, so the LTSB will not be upgraded by design from the vendor so these updates deployed by Patch Management Solution will not be targeting/updating the build of each release
