SOE Portal - build design & configure your Windows SOE image in the cloud
 January 2019

Windows 10 1809

Version 1809 (OS build 17763) has now been made available for the Windows 10 editions in the SOE Portal.  The list below shows the newly added editions:

  • Windows 10 Enterprise Version 1809
  • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019
  • Windows 10 Professional Version 1809
  • Windows 10 Education Version 1809

All Windows editions are Semi-Annual Channel unless they include LTSC in the edition name.

Earlier editions are still available. Remember the handy Copy Image Config feature, which allows you to copy an entire image configuration from one version of Windows to another (ensure you do double-check your Hardware and App associations after copying).

For the build to ISO option, the latest WinPE drivers are now included to support deployment to devices from major hardware manufacturers.

Long-Term Servicing Channel

The Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) edition of Windows 10 has now been updated to the latest version (2019). Note that the term LTSB (Long-Term Servicing Branch) has now been replaced with LTSC. If you have been using LTSB/LTSC 2015 or 2016, the OS description will have been automatically changed to LTSC. However, this is a cosmetic change and your Windows edition or version hasn’t changed.

Updated Device Information Application

The Device Information application which is optionally included in your SOE images has now been updated to version 1.11.  It will be automatically updated the next time you rebuild your SOE image.  Changes include:

  • A new button called Diag Logs has been added to the navigation pane. This does the same as the Tools > Collect Diagnostic Logs button which you have likely used in the past when contacting SOE Portal Customer Support.
  • Information on the General tab will periodically update to reflect current free disk space and Security Center status.
  • Information on the Network tab will update if an IP address change is detected.
  • A new Settings button is now displayed on the Tools tab to open the Windows 10 settings window.
  • A number of other reliability enhancements have been made as well as improvements to the diagnostics logs.
