  • Patch Lady – the different “offerings”

    Posted on July 28th, 2020 at 23:30 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    So here’s the recent thing I noticed.  1903 offers – but does not push – the optional .net update.

     

    1909 does not do this optional offering.

    Furthermore if you check for updates it will install the optional .net.

    The rule of thumb now that the optional preview updates have been turned back on is to NOT “check for updates” as it doesn’t merely check for updates, it installs those optional updates.

    If you haven’t read Woody’s Computerworld article about how pausing impacts the installation of these optional updates do so now, as you need to understand how it may impact you as well.
