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.

Does support for 11.6.0 include HF6, or is it only that particular build?

The post is slightly out of date. 11.6.0 HF6 contains the fixes in that special build. So now HF6 should be used instead.

Correction to this article about Windows 10 support with BIG-IP 12.0.0 APM - F5 currently does not support Windows 10 with that version of BIG-IP. F5 is planning to with an upcoming hotfix of BIG-IP v12.0.0.

A couple of corrections need to be made to this article: It should read, “F5 IS PLANNING TO support Windows 10 for BIG-IP v12.0.0”. Also, “Support for Windows 10 has been added in BIG-IP 11.6 HF6 and later. For more information about BIG-IP hotfixes, refer to SOL13123: Managing BIG-IP product hotfixes (11.x - 12.x).”

Does 12.0 HF1 support PWS in Windows 10? The Client Compatibility Matrix for 12.0.0 does not state any limitation.

Hi, for some win10 machines the F5 access is not working, even with the vpn app installed with no apparent errors. The "F5 Access" option does not come into the VPN provider. I realized that the plugin "F5Networks.vpn.client_btcnfmkykcjs2" does not exist in PS, has anyone know about this issue?
