Is anyone able to boot into POL via windower4 after patching win 10? :( I loaded windower and tried to launch straight to POL and it does nothing and the windower4 program closes.

Why did I have to update my PC? :(

Windower always seems to break when Windows does major updates. Give it a day or two.

There's actually a pretty big security issue with WiFi clients so an update may not be the worst idea.

Hoping there's an quick fix if windower is broken again.

So i figured instead of sitting here id try to be proactive, what the hell why not, turned off firewalls, made sure windower was being allowed through firewall, turned off all virus protectiong, still wouldnt transition to PoL.

My windows 10 Enterprise install went crazy after I upgraded to the 1703 update so I reverted back to my previous version with my image to get my games and other program working correctly. The system would randomly crash and lock down and a host of other issues I had to address each day like not booting POL as it had been doing before just fine or also causing major lag spikes in game when otherwise was working perfectly.

Same thing happening here. Logged out of the game to install update and now Windower goes Launching Playonline to nothing.

Edit: Also restored to previous build and everything works again.

My computer started to install it this morning. I paused it for 7 days.

Hopefully a fix will come out by then.

Oh look another forced Windows 10 *update* that breaks stuff. Must be a really great OS.

You know you can disable it beyond that, right?

Last I checked you couldn't do that on wired connections, it may have changed (in fact I think it did). That being said, there's other settings people can change with gpedit, but that's hoping they don't have "home." It's a frustrating world we live in.

The Fall Creators update is being pushed out in waves, you may not be despite it saying you are. You could also very well be, different systems react differently based on hardware and software and numerous other variables. This is why I laughed at Saevels comment since you can literally say the same thing for EVERY windows update ever to have been pushed since we could update online. If you want to know if you have the creators update, you can go to: Settings > System > About here if the version is 1709 and os build says 16299.xx you have the creators update just pushed, if not, you do not yet.

Previous versions of Windows didn't make updates mandatory and remove control from the end user. They also didn't make advertising a standard "feature" of the desktop environment.
