Believe it or not I managed to find a work around last night. By going through the registry and disabling all instances of enableULPS (set from 1 to 0 ).

I now have instant start up on boot. yay for me.

Well done. After looking it up I now know what ULPS stands for as well!

Then tried out Cortana by setting the language and location to the US but then it wanted me to logon to a Microsoft account. I have one but it seemed doing that would mean I would need to use a Microsoft account logon for that PC and I much prefer a local account.  Is that the case? The message was not clear at all.


You do need to sign in with a Microsoft account if you want to use Cortana - unless you're on a domain in which case you can add your Microsoft account alongside your domain account.

Is there a reason you prefer the local account over the Microsoft account for logon on that PC?  There are a bunch of benefits you can get using a Microsoft account - including synching your settings etc across multiple PCs via the cloud.


An update for you... you can now use Cortana with a local account in the latest insider build 10547 (but still not with NZ region settings)

Another problem: I can not change IP settings in VPN. For example I have a very simple SSTP VPN to Geekzone. In the Network Center, open the VPN Properties, go to Networking and try double-clicking IPv4 to change it's assigned IP address, or other settings - I want to disable the gateway. I can't...

Damn, this is getting annnoying - when I connect to that VPN it automatically uses it as the gateway so this laptop loses Internet access while connected.

It seems the VPN properties bug was there before RTM and Microsoft promised it would be fixed. It wasn't.

Using Powershell and running this should fix it (I wanted the default gateway to be disabled):

Set-VpnConnection -Name "VPN-NETWORK-NAME-HERE" -SplitTunneling $True

This annoyed me too, but is now fixed in the latest insider build.

I'm assuming these updates will be included in Threshold 2 due November?

Apologies if this has been posted already.

Wasn't sure if anyone else was getting annoyed with the new network pop out and the Windows 10 method to connect to VPN's (Clicking the VPN which takes you to Setting > Network & Internet > VPN compared to being able to connect from the pop out.)
The below will revert it to the windows 8 Network popout which I find much less convoluted. We have tonnes of PPTP VPN's at work to connect to client sites so has been annoying me.

 

  • Open regedit (WIN+R and type regedit.exe)
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Settings\Network
  • Take ownership of the “Network” key/folder (right click, Permissions)
  • Select “Advanced” in the Permissions window
  • In the Advanced window, select “Change” where the owner field is (at the top of the window)
  • Type in your username and save your changes.
  • Close the advanced window
  • Now select “Administrators” in the security tab
  • Make sure “Full control” is selected, then apply changes
  • Now that’s done, double click “ReplaceVan”
  • Change it’s value to 2

I had done the upgrade on a virtual Windows 8.1 PC.

That was easy and flawless.

So I have finally completed upgrading my main desktop PC.

I had a few issues that required reinstalling the graphics driver and drivers for my Logitech mouse and G13 (game keyboard).

But, everything seems to be working OK now.

The PC seems (surprisingly) better! The Desktop and loading/running software just seems smoother and faster.

I know the impression won't last. Soon I will get used to it and it will seem the same as it always was.
