May 16, 2018: Windows 1803

My morning started with loads and loads of phone calls coming in. Some days are just like this. A lot of this mornings discussion was about Microsoft’s Windows 10 1803 update that does not work with RDS and SAP properly. Microsoft has been pushing out the update without permission, even when it is “blocked” officially in settings. As it rolls out, it kills SAP completely. So it has become a major project to stop it.

I spent a lot of the day today writing scripts that go into Windows’ registry and actually disable the 1803 update. What a mess. It’s shocking that anyone is still writing “business” software for Windows given how it works now.

That summed up my day.
