Windows 10 May 2020 Upgrade (20H1) tested with hMailServer

Post by Dravion » 2020-05-20 08:45

I tested the next big System upgrade for Windows 10, which comes down the next few Days for all Windows 10 Devices, except if you paused or disabled Windows Updates.

Like all big Systemupdates 20H1 (Build 2004) is a Hugh one (5 GByte, single ISO file) which also means i doesn't fit on a Standard 4.5 GB Single Layer DVD anymore.
You can use Double Layer DVD's or a USB-Thumb Drive.

Tip:
Just in case (if the Build 2004 Update fails) i recommend you not to install it on your Production system until the Media Creation Tool and ISO' is officially released and available for
Download, so you can create your own bootable DVD/USB Install Media. If you have Mission critical System, it would also be a good idea to prepare a DVD/USB Install media from
the earlier System version (Windows 10 1909), just in case if something goes wrong.

Things i noticed:
Like the most earlier Windows 10 Setups, it wants you to connect you to the Internet and guides you to create a Microsoft Online Account instead of a Local Computer
User account.But you can just press the Button "I don't have Internet" which results in a Warning Dialog, which you can bypass by clicking "continue with basic Setup".
in the Next step, it shows your a page with your Privacy settings, all checked on, so if you don't like the idea of transferring all sorts of data to Microsoft, you should disable all
check boxes. Now it is busy a while and a text is shown with "We getting everything ready for you".

Regarding hMailServer:
There are no unmet prerequisite's or .NET Framework or Visual Studio Redist Updates required to run the official, 32-Bit version

The same goes for build:
* hMailServer 5.6.8 - Build 2501 (BETA) from:
https://www.hmailserver.com/download_ge ... loadid=268

*hMailServer-5.7.0-B2519-x64.exe (03 May 20 13:19) from:
https://build.hmailserver.com/viewLog.h ... ilServer57

*Build-2519 x64 (my custom build from date: 05/08/2020)
https://github.com/Dravion/hmailserver/ ... 19-x64.exe

I think I 've had a couple of machines do that update automatically this week, as I've noticed the 'use your microsoft account to sign in' window on a couple of machines that have updated.

Don't remember a 5GB download though. Is that a complete install disk?
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.
