Is there a Group Policy that will prevent the Windows 10 Invite App?

For companies is there a group Policy you have that will prevent the Windows 10 Invite app from installing.

So this can be a PLANNED event VS a Fire Storm on July 29th.

Thanks
Russ

If the clients are running retail licenses, then you either need to do it manually or download the .ISO and use deployment tools you would use to deploy Windows.

Andre is there a Microsoft webpage that says this?
I know you are a MVP and I respect that.

But as you know, Clients want an official from Microsoft.

So if you can post the link on this info it would help a lot.
Thanks again

@Russ Grover, @Andre

Any response concerning this question?  We have a domain network with Win7/8 clients and would like realistic expectations of what to expect.

This Windows 10 reservation process will not be available to any volume licensed SKU, this includes the Enterprise SKU.  Machines running retail SKUs that are domain joined (Pro retail) are not eligible for the upgrade via reservation process either.  This doesn't keep you from deploying Windows 10, you just can't use the automated process that is enabled by the reservation feature.  That process is focused on consumer machines.  If your machines are domain joined, you probably wouldn't want random machines upgrading to Windows 10, anyway.  Instead, you would probably want to use a more structured deployment process.

Moving to Win10 in an Enterprise or small/medium business where machines are domain joined can be accomplished in many ways.

From an IT admin perspective, the easiest way to deploy Win10 would be to use the unattended upgrade feature, which is documented on TechNet.  You could remotely execute a command like:  \\<servername>\<sharename where Win10 media resides>\setup.exe /auto:upgrade using any number of methods (GP script, SCCM, batch file sent in email, etc...)

The use of the Windows 10 Assessment and Deployment Toolkit (ADK) is recommended for building custom installation media that can be used to upgrade machines (using the command above, for example, or for building more complex custom images for bare metal deployments.

Additionally, the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) or Microsoft SCCM can be used for larger scale deployments using released media, custom media created with the ADK or a customized installation on a reference machine captured as a .wim file.

All of these deployment options are discussed on the Windows 10 TechNet site.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks,

Wes

Domain Joined computers should not be receiving the update all.

This was what I expected. But today Aug/03/2015 a lot of Windows 7 Domain Laptops started downloadingWindows 10 and they have a $Windows.~BT. All of the laptops have the GWX Update Patch installed as they where Domain Computers none of the Users were able to "Register for Windows 10".
