Issues since Microsoft's latest 3Gb update to Build 1607

Postby rhopkins » Sun Apr 01, 2018 10:42 pm

Friday night Microsoft did a 3Gb update to my two systems. Now both of them will no longer run 3.40 version of the label maker. Software recommended reloading program. I did that and it will run one time and only as Administrator. Sometimes it will load 4 or 5 times if they are done in a short time period. But leave the machine for a hour and return. The issue is back again. You have to uninstall and reload 3.40. Received a memo from Eric at Acoustica and seems no one else is having this issue.

I contacted Microsoft and as usual they said this wasn't related to the update. That figures getting such a response from them. Oh, yes this is Windows 10 giving the issue.

Thanks any ideas would be appreciated.

I have turned off Windows Defender permanently. I have also reloaded the operating system back to 1607 and everything returns to normal 3.40 works fine. But along comes the update last night and everything with 3.40 screws up.

We've got build 1709 of Windows 10 here and we're not having any problems. Maybe you just need to keep updating?

Also, if you're also using Bit Defender, that might be the problem.

Maybe this will help?

Right-click the program you’re trying to run and click Properties
In Properties > click the Compatibility tab
Check the box labeled Run this program in comparability mode. Select an old operating system from the list.
Click OK and try to run the program as an administrator.

Usually Microsoft makes are good OS then a crappy one and then a good one. Vista Bad! 7 good. 8 Very Bad and now Windows 10 mildly retarded and invasive. It's overly engineered same as German cars today.

Maybe something here will help.

Maybe the best thing to do is use label maker on another computer? Who knows if the "good folks" at MS have made the fix in Windows 10 for running older programs did it right.

Criticism of Microsoft has followed various aspects of its products and business practices. Issues with ease of use, robustness, and security of the company's software are common targets for critics. In the 2000s, a number of malware mishaps targeted security flaws in Microsoft Windows and other products. Microsoft was also accused of locking vendors and consumers in to their products, and of not following or complying with existing standards in its software.[1][2] Total cost of ownership comparisons between Linux and Microsoft Windows are a continuous point of debate.Audacity Find My iPhone Origin

I just came across a way to avoid Microshafts forced updates. Read past the registry hack and see the part where you can easily go into settings and set the Ethernet or WiFi as being on a metered connection. Read carefully and use at your own risk.
