Description

The Enable-BCDowngrading cmdlet instructs a client computer that is running Windows® 8 to operate in a downgraded Windows® 7 mode. In this mode, the client sends Windows® 7-specific version requests to content servers, and content servers respond by sending Windows® 7 versions of content information to the client.

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