    Ah sorry I may have set the wrong caption...I have it uninstalled now, was sure it was Enterprise S !
    Can you (or someone) tell me what the command :
    wmic os get caption
    reports on LTSC?

    Are you sure about the space between Enterprise and the S? Shouldn't it be EnterpriseS (and SN for N)?

    Great job on the post! Looks like I will be using this once I get my LTSC up and running. Just a couple of questions as I'm not the best when working with Registry and GPedit.

    What is FireFox Policies? Can you elaborate more on what is being "optimized" in regitry and services? I seem to understand the Group Policies and Power management part of the tweaks. Are some of these optimizing tweaks the same as shutup10? Can I use ShutUp10 with your tweaks/ltsc/server?

    Thanks in advance, you did a good job!

    Thanks for the info. Looks awesome! Do we need to enable any scheduled tasks to make sure settings are reverted? The Win10block suggested running a scheduled task as login. Is there any type re-apply automation in case something gets reset or changed?

    Policy don't get reverted, for registry settings, services and tasks, you can run fast optimization from time to time (F), it's same as full optimization but with no backup or prompts (and no trim).
    You could also take registry and optimized services script (saved next to the script in OptimizeNextGen_Settings_Backup\scripts) and run at startup/shutdown (or logon/logout) from group policy,
    a.PNG
    or through a scheduled task...

    Note: forgot to say, for "complete" services optimization, you need to run either Services Optimization.bat, or Optimized_Services_saved_at_.... with NSudo.
    For the 1st option you need to keep Optimize NextGen folder structure and create a shortcut to the script.
    Or (for both options) you could either copy NSudoG and create this script next to it
    Code:
    @echo off
    "%~dp0NSudoG.exe" -U:T -P:E  "path to the script.bat"& exit /b
    or add NSudo path to your system environment path and it would be simply like this:
    Code:
    @echo off
    "NSudoG.exe" -U:T -P:E  "path to the script.bat"& exit /b
    and that way NSudo doesn't have to sit next to the script.
    ps If you need to add NSudo to your system environment variables (and install anywhere) I made also a simple Installer for it.

    Ran this and things are working great other than I can't access network drives. I suspect it's because of some of the services or group policies that were set in the optimize. Do you happen to know what I would need to change to enable file and printer sharing? Here are some of the things I've tried:

    • I get error 80004005 when trying to access a UNC path on my private network.
    • When I try to enable file and printer sharing and click save and reopen the dialog file and printer sharing is still turned off.
    • IPv6 is disabled and Microsoft file and printer sharing is enabled.
    Thanks again for the great work!

    Figured it out. Needed to start a few services. As a suggestion maybe you could add an option to optimize with file and printer sharing enabled. Thanks again!

    yes, I warned about this in spoiler/services, good thing is you can also revert everything in case.
    But I will add your suggestion as an option good idea...
    so else than Lanman Workstation (Workstation), is there any other service that one needs to enable (or anything else) ?
