Windows Repair v4.4.9
« on: May 22, 2019, 10:38:17 PM »
Greetings,

I've just updated to Windows version 1903 and receive this error message at launch, so I'm assuming Windows Repair v4.4.9 isn't compatible with 1903.  For added safety, whenever there is a major Windows update I use the handy Registry backup tool, yet I am currently loath to use it as I'm not sure whether the backup made will be effective because of this error.

I would hold off on trying to use WR for now until the repair program is updated.

Has this been a normal Windows Update or a Fast/Slow Insider release update ?

Why do you need to run the repair program ?

I'll email Shane about this but he may need to wait until his Win 10 is updated to 1903 to see what changes are required.

I'm still on 1809 but there is an update in progress on mine which is listed as for 1809 KB 4497934

As for backing up, I normally create system images onto an external HDD.

Hi Boggin,

Basically every two-three years I clean install windows, make an image backup to an external hardrive and then backup the registry using your Windows Repair tool for extra safety.  The media creation tool that was available was the latest 1903 version.  I'll do what you suggest and wait for a newer version of WR to come out.

Yes, I've seen that the MCT has a direct download for 1903 but will wait until it's released through Windows Update.

Shane has told me that he'll update the program when he gets 1903 and then he'll see what changes he needs to make.

You haven't said why you needed to run the repair program.

Hi Boggins,

I'm running the repair program just to make a registry backup in case there is a future problem, there is nothing wrong with my pc at the moment.  I used to use Tweaking's stand alone registry backup program but then noticed that that particular feature is integrated into the full Repair program so thought it would be better to have the full Repair program installed instead of just the Registry program.

I tend to rely upon Macrium Reflect Free system images as you need the computer to work to use the repair program to restore the registry.

4.5.0 for 1903 now released.

Read my warning thread before using 4.5.0
