    Try MSMG Toolkit. Or look into its ToolKit.cmd for trick needed.

    Starting from:
    Code:
    ::-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    :: Function to Integrate Microsoft Win32 Calculator
    ::-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    :IntWin32Calc

    Thanks, but could you please provide the rest?

    I saw the toolkit was 229992044 bytes (219 MB) big, seems to be a little bit to big just for some information and I don't have unlimited bandwidth.

    Sorry, but I don't support it any more, and so I don't have its latest version at hand.

    Funny, also happens to me on the RS2 calculator taken from MSMG Toolkit installed on W10 Enterprise 1809 (not LTSB).
    How can you f**k up the calculator program? :eek:

    unit conversion and worksheets crash on my LTSC 1809, can't find any info on this. The one on LTSB 2016 is fine, copy it to 1809, it just won't run

    As noted by @MSMG, since build 15063 and Win32calc.exe is crippled

    to run 14393 version, place it in custom folder with corresponding lang folder
    e.g.
    Code:
    C:\Calculator\win32calc.exe
    C:\Calculator\en-US\win32calc.exe.mui

    I would have thought about the same idea. However, being a "perfectionist" I take a longer path:
    1. Take ownership of the both files & rename them (on a LTSC 2019 machine)
    2. Copy the LTSB 2016 ones to their original locations, voilĂ !

    Imho I don't think this is the right solution, as there will be a hash mismatch between the file and its WinSxs source, so the file will be overwritten as soon as you run chkdsk or a restorehealth.

    I'd like to find a more definitive solution though

    Does chkdsk check the 'hash' of a file ? but not sure about the 'restorehealth' thing; never wish to use that measure anyway, faster to just restore from an Acronis image backup if the situation is that bad on system drive. No security settings on NTFS when copying the files from system drive to use them later in different machine. .

    If you don't care about unit conversion or programmer (unit conversion crashes immediately, but programmer seems to work at least initially,) but use other functions the cab files from LTSC 17763 work fine. Just add the language file last.
