This is the latest information available from F5 regarding Microsoft Windows 10 support (including F5 BIG-IP Edge Client) with certain BIG-IP APM versions. 

Microsoft Windows 10 support is available for certain BIG-IP APM versions.  This entry replaces the original AskF5 solution (SOL16626) on support.f5.com

F5 currently supports Microsoft Window 10 for the following versions:

Note: Support for Windows 10 has been added in BIG-IP 12.0.0 HF1 and later. For more information about BIG-IP hotfixes, please refer to SOL13123: Managing BIG-IP product hotfixes (11.x - 12.x).

Note: Support for Windows 10 has been added in BIG-IP 11.6.0 HF6 and later. For more information about BIG-IP hotfixes, refer to SOL13123: Managing BIG-IP product hotfixes (11.x - 12.x).

Note: Support for Windows 10 has been added in BIG-IP 11.5.3 HF2 and later. For more information about BIG-IP hotfixes, please refer to SOL13123: Managing BIG-IP product hotfixes (11.x - 12.x).

Previously, in the original AskF5 solution (SOL16626), it was stated that F5 planned to support Windows 10 with BIG-IP 11.4.1.  However, as many customers have been able to upgrade to newer versions of BIG-IP, and because F5 customers should benefit substantially from stability improvements in BIG-IP 11.5 and 12.0.0, which are within F5’s Major Release/Long Term Stability Release model, F5 will not be providing additional support for Windows 10 with BIG-IP APM 11.4.1, as previously stated.

Additionally, F5 will be enabling the following as regards Windows 10:

Windows 10 Browser Support

  • The Windows Internet Explorer browser included in the Windows 10 release is supported.
  • The BIG-IP APM system does not currently support the Microsoft Edge (Spartan) browser.

Inbox F5 VPN Client

  • Windows 8.1 includes a built-in VPN client for BIG-IP APM (Inbox F5 VPN Client). For Windows 10, the VPN client for the BIG-IP system will be available for download from the Windows Store. Please note that the name of the app may also change.

Windows Protected Workspace

  • The Windows Protected Workspace feature of BIG-IP APM is not currently supported on Windows 10.

Client side checks

  • Certain client-side security checks (such as Patch Management and Windows Health Agent) are no longer supported on Windows 10. Depending on how you use these checks with BIG-IP APM, these Windows 10 client checks may fail. For information about adding Windows 10 clients to BIG-IP APM, please refer to SOL16874: Adding a new device type detection to an access policy.
