    Interestingly some stuff is updated in 2019 as well with features even if they are not advertised in 2019 but only in 365. E.g the latest build 20498 added (to production) hex values for color (yeah not a big feature). An Office 365 installation advertised it, while the 2019 didn't but it works the same in both...

    Yes, but like @WindowsAddict said earlier, some other features are not available if you use O2019, for instance XLOOKUP function. Now it's like 6 months that I switched to O365, so I can't confirm if such function is now available on O2019. I was using O2019 and O365 on different machines, both of them updated to the same build, and O365 had it and O2019 didn't.

    The switcher worked for rescuing a Retail-VL conversion (KMS_VL_ALL) by pushing it to the Current channel, from which it updated ok. The script did nothing however for a legit VL installation deployed with ODT. The registry was changed to the Current channel, but the ODT-installed VL doesn't want to update to Current, still reporting it's on the latest version (16.0.10363.20015).

    So far as per my tests, we can upgrade the version by changing the channel but we can't downgrade. Will test ODT VL scenario too.

    It might be because the OS on which I had the ODT installed 2019 VL is 2019 LTSC. As far as I can tell Office 365 latest builds aren't supported on Windows LTSC. Only Office 2019 is supported and I suspect by that they probably mean 2019 VL-only. Since Office Retail 2019 seems to share builds with 365 maybe that's why it refuses to pull those (Current Retail) builds on an Windows LTSC host.

    Just finished some tests on windows 10 2004 with office 2019,

    PerpetualVL2019 downloaded and installed with ODT
    Result - Changed the channel to current, update reported that it's the current version.

    PerpetualVL2019 downloaded with YAOCTRU and installed with YAOCTRI (PerpetualVL2019 update channel)
    Result - same as previous one.

    12527.20482 official 2019 retail ISO, installed with YAOCTRI (PerpetualVL2019 update channel)
    Result - same as previous one.

    Looks like it's better if the update channel step shows only one option which is 'Default' (queried from the office files) in the YAOCTRI menu.

    I recently found only the Japanese edition of HomeStudent2019Retail.img has been removed from the official downloads.
    Please someone let me know where it's gone, thanx.

    (I want the official image and no thanx for homebrew one though I know how to create one...)
