Windows Build 1909

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

What are the general experiences updating to 1909 and using Delphi? 

 

I can't say that past experience has made me at all excited to update. And this blog (http://delphicodemonkey.blogspot.com/2020/03/delphi-seattle-becoming-almost-unusable.html) has got me really spooked.

 

Can anyone offer any other experiences using Windows 10 1909? Specifically we do all of our development in XE3 and Seattle. 

 

Edit: Sorry I wanted this to go under Windows, but mistakenly put it into VCL. I couldn't delete my own thread.

No problems here, but I'm living in a VmWare guest, not real hardware.

Of coarse I have 10.3.3 all latest hotfixes installed, never checked X3 or Seatle any longer.

My Windows says it installed 1909 on Feb 5th. My current build no. is 18363.815.... no perceptible issues in the last (almost) 3 months.

No issues.  

 

Are you on the fast ring, Sherlock? 
I suspect our corporate enterprise version isn't exactly at the bleeding edge.

Not fast ring...just install as soon as it's out. It is on a VM, so I can undo whatever crap happens :classic_cheerleader:

I updated to 1909 from Windows 8.1 in December 2019.

There were two issues that I remember, but these do not concern any recent Delphi versions:

(The second was not an update issue but installing Delphi 2007 on a fresh Windows 10 installation.)

 

This is why I blog about those issues. I keep forgetting them if I don't.

Strange. My VM is also "free roaming" but was on the same build as my main.
I am pulling latest cumulative update now to see what build I get and have switched off sourcing updates from local computers.

... and it is still the same build. I would have expected my build to be the same as yours, but it is 18362.752 vs your 18363.815.
Are you sure you are not on the Windows Insider track?

I see the same OsHardwareAbstractionlayer = 10.0.18362.752
But my Operating System Build Number shown in Settings/System/Info is 18363.778

I have pen entry enabled...and it's in German. Maybe one or both of them are responsible for the build number?1349109730_Bildschirmfoto2020-04-30um13_33_57.thumb.png.208395980a2f35edf3a6c7a1666b5b68.png

Ok, thank you Microsoft for being so clear and transparent 😛 

 

From the host

From the VM

But the OSHAL is the same for both.

 

PS C:\> Get-ComputerInfo | select WindowsProductName, WindowsVersion, OsHardwareAbstractionLayer

WindowsProductName    WindowsVersion OsHardwareAbstractionLayer
------------------    -------------- --------------------------
Windows 10 Enterprise 1909           10.0.18362.752

 

The Revision doesn't appear to be showing from the environment string

PS C:\> [System.Environment]::OSVersion.Version

Major  Minor  Build  Revision
-----  -----  -----  --------
10     0      18363  0

 

So if anyone knows how to get the xxx from 18363.xxx in PowerShell, I'd like to know.

Windows 10 Pro     1909           10.0.18362.752
