Early last month we released a driver for Surface Pro 3 devices to Windows Update. This driver, an update to Surface Pro 3 System Firmware, corrects a condition that causes the full charge capacity of the battery to be misreported to the operating system and device firmware on some devices. We're happy to announce that you can now download this driver in the ZIP and MSI files on the
Surface Pro 3 Drivers and Firmware page
in the Microsoft Download Center.
In this release you will notice that there are not just one but two ZIP files for Windows 10. Each of these ZIP files includes in the name a Windows 10 build number indicating the minimum supported build required to install the drivers and firmware contained within. For example, to install the drivers contained in SurfacePro3_Win10_14393_161602_0.zip you must have Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Version 1607) or newer installed on your Surface Pro 3 device. You can find a list of the build numbers for each version of Windows 10 in
