        I went “seeking” Win 10 1903, and had some interesting experiences.  I use Windows Home Server 2011 (yes, still!) and found that the 1903 upgrade broke the Launchpad.  Looking around for solutions, I found others who reported that, if they applied the 1903 upgrade over an installation of the WHS Launchpad, the Launchpad broke.  If they uninstalled the Launchpad before taking the 1903 upgrade, then reinstalled the Launchpad after taking the 1903 upgrade, it worked.  I was able to reproduce this exerience myself, and I share this in case any AW members still use WHS2011.

        The 1903 upgrade also seems to break iCloud, as I had to sign out and sign in again, and re-import my calendar and contacts.

        I still use the original WHS. All the recent builds including Insider Previews before and after 1903 break the console. I just go to Programs and Features and repair the WHS console software. Just takes a minute and works every time.
