    Does anyone know if there is a place to download the newest version of these templates for Windows Server 2012 (NOT R2) - if they even exist?

    I am specifically looking for this new template setting which can be found in the July 2015 .admx update for Server 2012 R2 but I need it for a non R2 server -


    We have clients on a domain receiving Windows 10 update notifications and this seems like the best way to block this except we don't have a Server 2012 R2 DC in place.

    You should be able to grab the admx/adml file from a 2012 server ( C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions ) and copy them to the central store. Although, I'd just grab them from a 2012r2 server...
