Just checked v1903 it seems everything works fine
Amazing! Thank you so much!!
As soon as MS Fixes their mess with this new windows, I'll upgrade safely and apply the latest patch!
It should. From my independent research, I can find no new "update hijacker" mechanisms added to 1903, so any update control solution that worked with 1809 should work with 1903 without issue.
The last update hijacker subsystem changes I'm aware of, and please add to the list if you see something I missed (and I have no idea how, or if, they affected your project):
-1809 removed the ability of administrators to modify permissions of lots of select registry keys and system files in the Windows folder. 1903 is the same (so far).
-1803 introduced new WaasMedic components and the OS Remediation System Service.
-1709 got an update around Nov-Dec 2017 that caused Windows to begin arbitrarily turning wuauserv back on by itself if you disabled it manually.
That's all I have going back to 1709 and I see no point in digging further back for the purpose of this post.
So other than some reduced administrator privilege changes introduced in 1809, nothing has changed for almost exactly a year now.
Yes last update i did was because of the permissions in 1809, also disabled WaasMedic
i tested on windows 10 home 1803 and the software works well. But then I installed ltsc 2019 and applied again the software just to be sure.

This means another tool played with this permission, glad it's working fine with you now
Congratulations: BALTAGY deserved to wear MDL GUIDEDOG as his title (should be changed soon i hope )
I also suffered from the blank WindowsUpdate screen. Thanks Baltagy for the screenshot on re-enabling the Windows Update Orchestrator service by assigning Administrators with full control to the UsoSvc key. It's be great if I could run a commandline script to do this. Does anyone know of a commandline script to assign these rights?
Hi Baltagy thanks for program...
Can I use your stopwinupdates alongside wpd (to block privacy and telemetry ip)?
If i can which one do I run it first? your program or wpd?
What's wpd ?
It looks like the 2 utilities program doesn't interfere with each other...
so far so good... thanks again for your great program Baltagy
Well, just a quick post for people to feel safe.
Just upgraded to build 1903 V2, applied latest cumulative updates, reapplied v2.5 patch. All runs smooth and safe.
For the record, you can manually install CU's if you download them from windows catalog. Normally, they don't enable WU again, but, if you are paranoid like me, just reapply the patch, it doesn't break anything, quite de opposite.
As usual, thanks @BALTAGY for this awesome tool!
I test this tool in Windows 10 1903 and works perfect, thanks @BALTAGY .
Thank you it works on W10 1903!
