Hopefully this is a simple question and I have just got a little confused! I will be upgrading the SSL VPN very soon to version 8.0R11 which is the recommended version for the appliance. I was concerned with regards to Windows 10 users, where the latest KB article I was reading said:
What Pulse Secure software versions will support Windows 10? Connect Secure (SSL VPN server) version 8.1R4 or later Pulse Secure desktop client for windows version 5.1R4 or later
Does that mean that to work properly on Windows 10, the users need to have Pulse Secure desktop client running 5.1R4 and I need to upgrade the VPN to run 8.1R4 as well? As if I left it at 8.0R11 it wouldn't work?
Hopefully soon 8.1R4 will become a 'recommended release' as we cannot upgrade to that as it stands!

Looks like where you said 'Web component installation: fails using Edge (default browser), succeeds using Internet Explorer 11' this is standard behaviour at the mo, according to the Windows 10 Knowledge Base article: https://kb.pulsesecure.net/articles/Pulse_Secure_Article/kb29856/
As it states: When will Pulse Secure support the Edge browser? What is the workaround? Due to the removal of ActiveX support from the Edge browser, Pulse Secure clients cannot be launched or installed from the Edge browser. The workaround is to use Internet Explorer 11. Pulse Secure is investigating alternative mechanisms for launching Pulse Secure clients from the Edge browser and will provide an update when more information is available.
I have found that when you check on the VPN for 'Status>Active Users, any Windows 10 clients show as Windows Vista! This is now also mentioned in the KB article as I posted that in this forum Friday and it has been confirmed as something to be fixed.
I am running a MAG2610 on 8.1R4. So far, Windows10 works fine with the Pulse Secure client that come with this version (5.1.4 build 60057). Also the webpages work fine except Window Edge does not support ActiveX (Terminal Services control) for Remote Desktop. But Windows 10 also comes with IE11 which does support the ActiveX.
