WMF: It's annoying to not have an independent setup for Win10
It is really annying that Microsoft still patronizes their Customers and don't allow to setup WMF (e.g. Version 5.1) on Windows 10 without Windows Update / without upgrading to the anniversary release.
We have 650 Desktops and we have not yet finished all compatibility tests, but we have Developers which needs WMF 5.1.
Please, keep in mind simple, friendly installations and not microsoft internal political decisions.
Because there are many Operating Systems with open source package managers, you could peek how they are solving such problems. Since decades.
Kind regards, Thomas
There have been multiple posts on this with slightly differing information, so it’s hard for us to know for certain what is going on. Please contact email@example.com to follow up on this issue.
It's really getting worse with each Windows release. Today, we had to wait 20 minutes until Windows recognized that there is no update. The same job is done in linux in some seconds.
Additionally, Powershell is a scripting language. Therefore it's really a bad idea to couple it to the OS, because, we now have the next problem: we can not update Powershell to the same Version as Windows 2012 R2 / 2016 uses - which behaves different at runtime.
