I have recently installed SQL Server 2014 Developer edition onto my PN, which has Windows 10 Professional installed. I upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro last year as it was a free update from Microsoft.

I am trying to install Master Data Services and I receive the following warning:

Before creating an MDS web application, you must correct the following errors:
Internet Information Services (IIS) is not configured on this server.
These required Web Server role services are not installed:
Windows Authentication
For web application requirements, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=309491.

I am now going to install Windows authentication to correct the problem. However, I have looked at the link and Windows 10 Pro is not listed as being compatible with SQL Server 2014 Developer edition. Is that correct?

I think it is fine; the documentation was just written long before Windows 10 was released and hasn't been updated (I've sent in a note that it should be corrected).

In fact it is listed as fully supported here, with no special caveats for MDS. I have never heard of any components of SQL Server 2014 having any compatibility issues with Windows 10.
