Enable-BCDowngrading

Last Updated: 3/26/2017

SYNOPSIS

Instructs a client computer that is running an operating system in a downgraded mode.

SYNTAX

Enable-BCDowngrading [[-Version] <PreferredContentInformationVersion>] [-Force] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
 [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Enable-BCDowngrading cmdlet instructs a client computer that is running a later version of the Windows operating system to operate in a downgraded mode. In this mode, the client sends previous version-specific version requests to content servers, and content servers respond by sending previous versions of content information to the client.

Note: Windows® 7-based BranchCache client computers are not affected by this setting.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Operate in downgraded mode

PS C:\> Enable-BCDowngrading

This command instructs a client computer to operate in a downgraded mode.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.
