Windows 10 Insider Build 10547 – Updates Greyed out

If, like me, you are a Windows Insider, and you are running on a domain…   you may well hit this issue…

The latest version of Windows Pro Insider Preview Build 10547 has made some changes to the update system that will sometime in a future build give users more information on why Windows 10 Updates are not showing.   However, when I updated to this new build, some old registry settings were brought over even though the network group policy was set to “not configured” for Windows Update.

In my case, I saw something like this:

updatesgreyedoutwin10

 

As you can see, the box is greyed out, and the message “Some settings are managed by your organization” is showing.     This wouldn’t normally be cause for concern on a managed domain.   But I knew that our Network Group policy was certainly not setting this….

So, it seems that somewhere between 10240 (RTM) and this build even though I don’t have a group policy set, I had a registry entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

 

I manually removed the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\WU folder, and now my Windows Update looks correct.
