WebView2 Evergreen Runtime distribution on Windows LTSC

document about Evergreen distribution says, that WebView2 Runtime updates automatically. Is this true for Windows LTSC version which receive no feature updates? If runtime is not updated, does that mean that after installing evergreen distribution runtime version stays in initial version?

    Hi @Petr Binko

    I think WebView2 Evergreen Runtime will update automatically on Windows LTSC.

    From this doc, we can see that

    The WebView2 Runtime updates automatically without more effort from you.

    Windows LTSC can delay receive Windows feature updates, but WebView2 Evergreen Runtime is not updated with Windows updates. It will update by itself automatically.

    If you don't want the WebView2 Runtime update, you can refer to this doc to use the Fixed Version of the WebView2 Runtime.
