Note: The driver in this release is applicable only to Windows 10 Anniversary Update. As such, on the Download Page you will notice that there are two ZIP files and two MSI for Windows 10. Each of these files includes in the name a Windows 10 build number indicating the minimum supported build required to install the drivers and firmware contained within. For example, to install the drivers contained in SurfacePro3_Win10_14393_1701602_1.zip you must have Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Version 1607) or newer installed on your Surface Pro 3 device. You can find a list of the build numbers for each version of Windows 10 in Windows 10 release information. Files that do not contain a build number in their name are applicable to all versions of Windows 10.
