You can't use 2017.1 on a new system like windows 10. It's time you accepted that fact and get out of the past.

The above policy also aligns with Windows as a Service concept to some

And it also aligns with general practice among all commercial, and the vast
majority of open-source, software developers that they will not make any
attempt at backward compatibility with an unsupported version of an
operating system, Windows or otherwise.  There are times when backward
compatibility is "accidentally maintained" but it should never be expected,
ever, by intent for unsupported versions of any operating system.

In the age of most things going in the "as a service" direction, it is truly
futile to make any attempt to stay with one thing, no matter how much one
might like it, when it has been abandoned by its own maker.
