    No dice. Maybe something specific to the system? Will have to clean-install to a test VM and re-check.

    Edit: Set up a new 19608 VM and tested, with the same outcome. Unless it's something with VBox, the build has issues.

    Im sorry, im just overloaded of information due to moving from win 7 and im trying to lower the cons as much as possible.
    What works better on 2020, WUMT or WuMgr?

    Thanks for this great job, you and the rest who made this possible.
    This made my life a little bit better on these difficult times.

    @rpo, thank you for this. I would have had to beat my head against a wall for a week trying to figure this out. I had no idea that they had changed anything about powershell. You're a rock star.

    MS documentation says :
    "-UseBasicParsing
    This parameter has been deprecated. Beginning with PowerShell 6.0.0, all Web requests use basic parsing only. This parameter is included for backwards compatibility only and any use of it has no effect on the operation of the cmdlet."
    MS liar...

    Is the new code also working for older builds, like LTSB/C?

    I haven't been able to check yet due to previous commitments, but it really doesn't matter whether it does or not because I can do "if powershell version is under 6.0.0 run old code, else run new code." Also, thanks for reporting this ms-defcon issue.
    Edit: I just realized you might mean you want to plug in the new code manually. If so, the worst that could happen is the ms-defcon level won't show on earlier versions of powershell. Either way, I should be able to work on this about 36 hours from now.

    Is there a Guide/Tutorial for newbie?
    Unfortunately I'm finding difficult to understand/use It (for now I'm only using Windows Update Blocker to block windows update).


    Many thanks

    Great work with 2.7. But should Internet connectivity check be run also before askwoody query?

    Yes, I think you're right. I'll put that in the next update or the one after that.
