Microsoft warns the users of Windows 10, version 1703 Enterprise and Education editions to take action since this Windows 10 version will reach end of life on October 9, 2019.

The Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, and IoT Core editions of Windows 10 v1703 reached end of service last year, on October 8, 2018.

This alert was published as part of an announcement published on the Windows 10 message center which also urges Windows 10 Creators Update users — as version 1703 is also known — to update their devices to the latest version of Windows as soon as possible.[….]

The warning was prompted by the fact that after October 9 “there is no extended support available for any edition of Windows 10, version 1703.”

“Therefore, it will no longer be supported after October 9, 2019 and will not receive monthly security and quality updates containing protections from the latest security threats,” adds Microsoft.

However, as the Windows lifecycle fact sheet notes:

Not all features in an update will work on all devices. A device may not be able to receive updates if the device hardware is incompatible, lacks current drivers, lacks sufficient storage space, or is otherwise outside the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) support period.

To make sure that their devices are compatible with the latest version of Windows 10, users of Creators Update Enterprise and Education editions will have to first review the Windows 10 System Requirements and the Windows Processor Requirements before starting the update process.

Windows 10 Creators Update users should also be aware that, at the moment, there still are eight compatibility holds active for Windows 10 version 1903 — the latest stable version — although Microsoft provides mitigation measures for some of them:
