Say goodbye to CReg?

Posted by Tim Mangan on Feb 20, 2018 10:53:16 AM

Two  days ago about I wrote about CReg/Vreg because I anticipated the fix coming in March’s OS rollup.  So surprise!  The following day we get fixes a month early.

The totality of information coming from Microsoft about the changes are included in the KB article for the February rollup for Windows 10 1709: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4074588/windows-10-update-kb4074588.

Shhh! Don’t tell anyone this about App-V.  Just because you didn’t hear any sound does not mean that there wasn’t a lot a noise involved.  In the last year, Microsoft has made two incredibly big moves with its App-V product, and you probably didn’t hear much about it. What happened? First, Microsoft has effectively stopped charging you for App-V.  Second, they are now bundling it into the appropriate operating systems directly.

And this is really annoying, because the Start Menu is the first thing that the user generally interacts with when they use a Windows 10 desktop, and possibly the most "in your face" part of the new OS features."
