    Dear customers,

     

    FRP 5.0.1 HF1150417 is now available. In addition to incorporating defect fixes, this HF also includes:

     

    • Support for Windows 10 Version 1607 Anniversary Update

    FRP 5.0.1 HF1150417 is Windows 10 Anniversary Update ready. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Windows with FRP installed, please refer to KB87550 appropriate instructions.

    Note that FRP 5.0.1 HF1150417 is the only supported FRP version for Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Existing FRP versions are unsupported with Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Existing FRP customers must upgrade to FRP 5.0.1 HF1150417 before deploying / upgrading to Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

     

    • Device Guard Support

    For further information about support for Windows 10 Device Guard with FRP, please refer to KB86009.

    IMPORTANT: Running FRP or MDE in FIPS mode on a Windows 10 system with Device Guard enabled is currently unsupported. The boot process will fail resulting in the system going into a recovery mode (the certified drivers do not currently support Device Guard).  Support for FRP/MDE in FIPS mode with Device Guard enabled is being considered for a future release.
