  • Patch Lady – my favorite new Windows Update setting

    Posted on October 22nd, 2020 at 08:37 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    So you want to ensure you get feature release XXXX and no later than that right?  So you are on 1903, you forgot to download the 1909 iso and yet you still want to install 1909 and only 1909?

    There is now a way to do that.

    I’ve detailed out my new favorite setting and how it works here.


    Edit:  Bruce pointed out on twitter that I said the setting was first released last year…. it actually was released this year but clearly my brain has been impacted by the pandemic and I FELT like it was a year ago.  Apologies to anyone else scratching their heads.

  • Where we stand with the October patches

    The run-of-the-mill cumulative updates had all the usual problems. But the other patches were a bit odd.

    I’m still amazed that the cumulative updates went out with a hard bug in an HP app, but HP has fixed its wayward ways.

    And we still don’t have the announced security fix for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Commerce.

    Winter – and version 20H2 – are coming.
