    Windows 10 20H1 Impending release

    It appears this release will have system file changes that could impact Media Composer performance,unlike the previous fall update that revised features. At this point the release should be "optional" rather than force fed. If you manually engage Windows Update for the prime interest of security patches and Defender definations, be alert for the optional download and install of the Windows revision update, and avoid clicking on it.

    Re: Windows 10 20H1 Impending release

    Thanks very much for this important info, TVJohn.

    Today my workstation completed the force-feeding of 1909. 

    After reading your post, I set my Avanced Update setting (the one beneath the "pause" options, to the maximum of 365 days, as I am trying to use  MC v2018.12 for the foreseeable (?) future.

    Do you suggest I try to "roll back" to what I had two days ago? If so, do you know where the setting to do that is found?

    I got a lot to learn about the OS upgrade policies for individual licensees.

    I think my AVG may have been simply over-riding my Win 10 Pro settings... possibly including that upcoming 365-day block-all I just added.

    anyway, thanks for the heads up. this new update is coming in July, according to MicroSoft support. Does that sound right?

    No.  If they're still on schedule that should be 20H2.

    I'm going to update to 20h1 and give it a go. But I'm also going to do a full system backup before hand, just in case.

    Dave, same here, I do not have serious production commitments, so a little ledge walking adds some spice.

    Re: Windows 10 20H1 Impending release

    If your system is not affected by it, it is available as a download. If it is, as in my case with the ZBook (something about the internal sound card) then it clearly states it is not available yet and will be when it's sorted. I should imagine it is fine, if it is available and would not be advisable, if it is not, to circumvent Windows recommendation to seek it out manually. Avid seem no longer to issue update advisories, so we're a bit on our own here.
