OK, I admit it. I got tired of waiting for Microsoft to offer my production PC the May 2019 Update (aka 1903 upgrade). Last Friday, I broke down and used the Update Assistant instead. Despite my original plan to wait for WU to make an offer, I caved. Here's a brief chronology of events leading up...

A funny thing happened when I upgraded my Surface Pro 3 to the latest Release Preview. I'm talking Build 18362.53, otherwise known as 1903 aka May 2019 Update. Before the upgrade, the PC saw its SDXC card and contents without issue. After the upgrade, nada. Before the upgrade, DevMgr saw something...

The March 2019 AdDuplex Report is out, and it tells and interesting and possibly depressing story about Windows 10 1809. The 1809 rollout has been bumpy, to say the least. As 1903 looms ahead, only 26.4% of PCs under the AdDuplex purview are...

UFD is, of course, a USB Flash Drive, preferred media for Windows OSes nowadays given their size and frequency of change. Alas, I've been struggling with recent Insider Preview releases on a test machine lately. It's my Dell Venue Pro 11 7130. Build 18305 is as far as it will go. In fact, upgrades...

Man, I have to chuckle. Just a little. Seems that MS has finally, finally let go of the latest Windows 10 upgrade through "normal channels." That release, of course, is named 1809. As I understand it, this decodes to September (the ninth month of) 2018. Look at what's on the MS

Drat! I really like the built-in Windows 10 Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) command. But I've discovered some DISM schisms. They embrace Version 1809 (Build 17633.134) and the Insider Preview (Build 18298.1000). Usually, DISM supports get and set operations for something called...
