WR 4.4.9 apparently not compatible with Win 10 1903
« on: May 25, 2019, 12:35:01 pm »
I've tried to use 4.4.9 on two different Win 10 1903 computers and get an error message on both "Could not find the required files for repair ..."

This has been posted about twice before on the forum.

It is a compatibility issue and Shane is in the process of updating the program as he has to do for all new builds.

He will release the new version when he has completed and tested it.

What is the reason you need to run the repair program ?

I closed the error message and ran it anyway. The reason was there were too many hesitations and I've found that something in the program fixes that problem. It worked.

Well that's good news but as found in the past, running WR on a newer version of Win 10 has caused problems, so it's best to wait until the repair program has been updated to accommodate the new Win 10.

MS tend to change the Permissions on newer versions which can cause problems when running an "outdated" version of the repair program.
