HAs anyone using older versions of CodeVision experienced the software no longer launching after the recent update form the Evil Empire?

 

My Version 3.10 was running fine until the last update was rammed down my throat.  No I have to uninstall CV, re-install it, and it will launch ONCE.  After that I have to repeat the process.

 

ready emailed HP-infotech asking for a quote for an upgrade to the latest, but this is pretty frustrating.

 

I know I can roll back one, but eventually the Empire Strikes Back.

 

Cheers,

Jim

Windows 10 updates can be select-able and manual (iow not automatic)

 


Allow a blocked app in Windows Security (controlled folder access)

Add an exclusion to Windows Security

Not as much as you would think.  Microsoft has taken a very aggressive stance where they will prevent the machine from running apps until you back up and if the OS sees the rollback they wait a little while and force it down your throat.

 

Manual is not so manual anymore.  I believe the legal term is "Forced Consent"(I made that up...but still)

concur

One can do an end-run on Windows 10 that one didn't have to on Windows 7 and 8.1.

"manufactured consent"?

though there may be only one 'consent' in a Windows 10 EULA.

I had to use Windows for work.

Could only find Windows 10.

It kept forcing updates and reboots.  Arrrg.

Found the mechanism to delay updates.

Clunky and sometimes defeated by long weekend.

Could not delay reboot without delaying updates.

Have read that the "Professional" version is more flexible in this regard.

Maximum pause is 7 days for Windows 10 Home 1903 and subsequent.

 


Windows 8.1 is an excellent choice @ AskWoody
