Re: Windows vers1903 the May Update

Just getting the above update now as I type.  It's another dual installer; it went pretty fast 1st time round, but stuck around on 100% installed for a while.  It's now at 73% second time round.  Yet more confusion for new users.

Yeah... A 64bit operating system that shutsdown with a 32bit program.  My sister's laptop had 32bit Windows 7 on it, but upgraded itself to the 64bit version of Win10.  During the 5 hours it took to get the 1903 update on it, I switched it off when specifically told not to as I fancied some sleep.  The details of this experience are elsewhere, but during the 5 hours it took, there could have been a power cut resulting in the same thing.  Since it was a free download, no compensation for lost data. 


The update below makes interesting reading (it fixes broken 32bit stuff) regarding the comment I made above, why isn't Windows 64bit just a straight 64bit version with only 64bit programs?  I realise that it would cost money to re-compile 32bit to 64bit, but if stuff is developed on a 64bit system, how come 64bit versions don't exist; such as W32time for example.  Maybe I'm missing something, just curious.

Re: Windows vers1903 the May Update

My guess is that there are so many 32-bit programs that it would be a big job to make the changes to 64-bit. Microsoft has, however, created this problem as they've been releasing both 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows since Vista in 2007, so plenty of time to migrate to 64-bit.

Interestingly Gamefirst V  The latest update for AMD ASUS ROG and Crosshair boards is in (32 bit) and Google crash handler loads up in both 64bit and 32 bit versions

Just got this, now.  It's a bit shouty and fixes the same stuff the last update did, along with a fix for Internet Explorer 11 (I thought they were firing this off, along with dll files and active x; something that hasn't happened).  I've also noticed that it no longer updates if you initiate a power off "event" (i.e. pressing the off button) and you need to go on the Start Menu>Power>Update and restart/shutdown otherwise it just "parks" the update.

Re: Windows vers1903 the May Update

The KB4254147 update is borking a few machines with boot failure

https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/windows-10s-printer-fix-causes-even-more-bugs-and-potential-boot-f...

Normally I wouldn't repost such things, but bodged updates in recent months have been well documented... even for Microsoft though, causing boot fails is a new low.

Having looked at the blurbs I reckon this will cause problems...  Who uses HoloLens anyway?
