Re: Slightly OT: Is there a way to tell if a Windows update is a major upgrade?

Thanks Joseph and Austin for answering my question. As for everybody
else, I don't make the stuff, I just run it. I'm sure I'm not the only
one running legal Eloquence, so if anybody else is, feel free to
complain to Code Factory about it. It's the SAPI version, in case that
matters. To be fair to them they state it right in their FAQ and when
you install, if I recall rightly. They're also not the only people to do
this, quite a few audio games do, or at least did, the same sort of
thing, if anything major in the machine changes, you need a new key. I
agree, it's a really annoying form of licensing. But it is what it is,
and all I wanted to know was a way to work with it effectively.

Ah good. I guess i'll just pay attention when I receive my update
probably on Friday, Tuesday, or when ever it gets to be released to
me. I'm on the fast ring so it's almost every day I get something to
test. Oh fun fun.

Take care

Nice. Did I mis this? I'm a part of the insider I guess I'll find
out in 2
weeks eh?

Take care and I do agree. Forcing you to relicense when a major
update comes
is not acceptable in my humble opinion.

Usually the feature (major) update is shown as "Feature update
to Windows

10, Version my". Starting on October 17th, some folks will see an
called "Feature update to Windows 10, Version 1709" as part of a
list of

An important thing to note: starting from the feature update
coming out

this month, individual updates will have their own installation

its easy to tell when a major update has arrived.
if you go to settings and then updates it will tell you
something like

windows 10 build 16299 or so on.

if it says this its a major upgrade.
if it tells its a cumulative update then its a small one.
if you are a member of the windows10 forum on
<> you will
always know when is the major update arriving there is a major
arriving on 17th october and for some it has already arrived
