BranchCache for BITS on Windows Professional

For the longest time, I believed that BranchCache and all it's magic was only available to Enterprise version of Windows client. Turns out, I was wrong. BranchCache for BITS is supported on the following (in addition to Enterprise SKUs):

  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 8.1 Pro
  • Windows 8 Pro
  • Windows® 7 Pro

It's even documented in Microsoft Docs - BranchCache.

Why is this exciting? Because it means that those of you running Professional versions of Windows clients are able to take advantage of Configuration Manager BranchCache functionality for BITS downloads!

    Yeah, I see eye to eye with you but I couldn’t put BITS to work on Windows 7 pro yet. Did you have success?
