  4. the Server Core App Compat FOD should be available to download with Patches

    When trying to cook up an Image for our cloud deployments on Windows Server Core 20H2 with the Server Core App Compat FOD
    we are starting with a Nov 2020 Patched windows Core SAC image, and then we are trying to add the App Compat FOD.

    But after installing the App Compat FOD, the Get-updates want us to also reinstall the Nov 2020 15 GB patch

    It seems that the installation of the App Compat FOD , installs old libraries , and then even if that OS is patched, now a new OS patch has to be installed.

    this is…

  6. RSAT on Windows 10 2004

    We have search the Web and cannot install RSAT on this OS. nothing works. even after tearing holes in our security , we have fiddled and broken WSUS. and still we cannot get the RSAT tools installed.
    We have the stand alone installer, we have tried the option feature approach. It simply will not install because we have a WSUS server. The end game over thats all folk, go back Windows 10 1809 so that you can work.

  7. BUG with Set-ClusterLog -Size and the FailoverClustering_Diagnostic log

    Trying to set the cluster log size via Set-ClusterLog will cause the FailoverClustering_Diagnostic event log maximum size to balloon to 18014398507384832KB. That is 18014 PB!

    We have two separate Server 2019 Hyper-V Clusters that this affected. A MSFT employee on the Q&A site confirmed this also happened in her test environment.

  8. not work well with samsung tab s7 pen

    this app work very well with touch but in galaxy tab s7, in contrast to galaxy note 10.1 [2013 i guess] the pen do not work well with apps in windows. for example in onenote, you can not draw anything with this pen but in note 10.1 for that year, it work well and windows can figure out the difference between pen and touch, but in tab s7, NO.
    I hope you fix this

  9. Latin character not rendered properly

    I am having trouble seeing Latin characters when using NotePad and WordPad in Win Server 2012 R2. The character in question is a Latin Small Letter Insular T (Ꞇ). I am RDP'ing into a 2012 server and have the Ꞇ in my clipboard from my local machine. When I paste the character into Notepad, it comes up as a rectangle no matter what font I choose in Notepad. Seems like the character is not supported on the server.

  12. Update 10.2.1646.0 broke the app.

    I just received update 10.2.1646.0 from the store this morning and now every time I login to a remote desktop it freezes after about 30-60 seconds and has to be restarted. Needless to say, pretty unusable.

  13. Remote Desktop app suddenly is gone

    While working in Windows 10, and having 3 open RDP sessions on various servers, the Remote Desktop app and it's 3 open RDP windows are suddenly gone.

    I am also using Windows desktops and use CTRL+WIN arrow left/right to switch between them. To avoid issues for that, I switched the RDP app settings to use shortcut only from Local PC.

  14. Can't use RDS with a Microsoft account linked computer.

    Pretty self explanatory. Local accounts work, but once you switch to a Microsoft account it just doesn't accept any username or password. (EX: email and ms, email and pin, username and pin, username and ms password, username and local password, email and local password, ETC.)

  15. Disk Management under a non-domain account cannot detach VHDs on network shares

    To reproduce:

    1) Run Disk Management as a user that both:
    - is a local admin, and
    - has domain credentials to access some network share

    2) "Attach VHD", choose a .vhdx file stored on a network share.

    3) Run Disk Management as a user that both:
    - is a local admin, and
    - does not have domain credentials

    4) Right-click the VHD's item in the Disk list, click "Detach VHD"

    Observe that a dialog pops up reporting the UNC path to the VHD file, which is of course already a bad sign.
    Click OK.
    Observe that an dialog pops…

  17. nslookup ignores "set port"

    nslookup in Windows 10 and Server 2016 ignore the "set port" parameter. It always tries to use port 53 regardless. I verified this via packet captures.
