While we’ve been busy playing with Windows 11 to learn internally, it’s just not ready for a production environment. One of the largest issues we’ve come across is that some banking systems STILL rely on INTERNET EXPLORER to work properly. This includes cheque scanners for batch deposits and things like that.
SO for now, we’ve just pushed out a couple registry keys to block the update to Windows 11.
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate /v TargetReleaseVersion /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate /v TargetReleaseVersionInfo /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d 21H2
This blocks up to 21H2 which is the current November 2021 release. We will be able to simply update to the latest update when it comes out.
Most importantly, no more hassling to update to Windows 11!
