Dear Solid Edge Customer:
Solid Edge ST10 Maintenance Pack 5 is now available for download.
The Solid Edge Team
Solid Edge ST10 Maintenance Packs are delivered using Microsoft Installer (MSI) technology.
Microsoft Windows 10 releases Feature Updates every six months. Microsoft does not use Windows 10 Feature Updates as an avenue to deliver security-related patches. All quality-related patches, including security and reliability hot-fixes, will continue to be delivered outside of this Feature Update process. Therefore, if your production use of Solid Edge was negatively impacted as a result of the last Microsoft Windows 10 Feature Update, you should consider configuring your Windows 10 machines to delay the deployment of Windows 10 Feature Updates. Configuring your Windows 10 machines by moving the machines into the "Semi-Annual Channel" servicing channel will delay the installation of Feature Updates for approximately four months following the initial release. During this time, you and your IT organization will have the opportunity to review the suitably of the Feature Update, including determining any negative impact, upon the applications that you use in your production environment, such as Solid Edge. This four-month window of time between Microsoft initially releasing the Feature Update to targeted machines and releasing the Feature Update for general deployment to the enterprise will also provide our development team time to review and react to changes introduced by Windows 10 Feature Updates, thereby helping keep you as productive as possible.

If anybody installed MP5 using the silent install command line of: Solid_Edge_MSI_MP5.exe /S /v"/qn"
If you check your Help, About Solid Edge and check your version stamp, does it show MP5 installed or the prior version stamp?
We have been trying to deploy and found it not updating the version stamp (and not sure what else) using the recommended command line above due to the "/S" switch.
If we omit the "/S" switch and keep the rest, it will flash the initial dialog but still installs unattended but does update the version stamp.
Actually I believe it might also break the ability to uninstall it as we were seing that fail also if it was installed using "/S".
Actually it does not. The two issues are unrelated.
The version string being incorrect using silent install was introduced with MP4. Because of the need to get the MP5 released quickly, the fix for this did not make it until MP6.
The issue with not being able to uninstall MP5 is strictly an MP5 issue and will occur with a GUI install of the MP as well. This is already PRed and slated for fix.
So before I go and update everyone's machine there is no important problem using the silent install?
