    Cannot upgrade from 1803


    Hi Everyone,

    I'm profoundly annoyed by anything related to upgrading. I wish I could just use my computer and not be constantly worried by the OS sniffing in the background. That's why I used Sledgehammer on my laptop as soon as I fired it the first time.

    Now I'm stuck because
    • some apps from Adobe's Creative Cloud (I'm a professional graphic designer) will not install on a Windows older than 1809
    • my Windows refuses to upgrade, giving me an error message (see attached PNG)


    Prior to that, I've tried upgrading using WUMT, to no avail. I've then uninstalled the Sledgehammer scripts so as to use Windows original update mechanism, but I get the error above.

    What can I do to install a newer version of Windows (at this point I don't care which, though the lastest would be fine so I get into this same trouble as late as possible)?

    Your desire was to block Windows from upgrading. You have succeeded in your goal. I would suggest a clean install. Although you could try upgrading from an ISO file downloaded with the Media Creation Tool:

    "some apps from Adobe's Creative Cloud (I'm a professional graphic designer) will not install on a Windows older than 1809"
    Older or newer?

    "Some settings are managed by your organization" means that something is still blocking the WU.
    How did you uninstall Sledgehammer?

    I do have have Sledgehammer and I update running Setup.exe from a Win 10 installation files.
    What Win 10 version you want to install?

    Hey NavyLCDR,

    thanks for your reply. So it looks like you are implying that Sledgehammer's action is irreversible, which I hadn't understood quite like that. Is it really? No way to un-do what Sledgehammer does? As you can tell, I'm no expert, but it does sound weird.

    Download a Win 10 installation iso.
    Mount the iso
    Run Setup.exe (it will update even with Sledgehammer)

    Adobe wants 1809 or later. I'm on 1803.

    I've executed Sledgehammer_2.7.2\Portable\Sledgehammer\uninstall\Uninstaller_undo-all-script-changes.cmd with admin rights. It has executed fine with no error report.

    Glad to read that this is possible, which is also what I understood when I first installed Sledgehammer. I have no clue where Windows is at in terms of version. I really don't care much. Something recent will be fine.

    I am willing to. Could you please tell me where to go to do that?

    Thanks for your replies.

    Latest Win 10 is 2010 or 20h2.

    On post #3 (above) I gave you a Win 10 iso down loader.
    Download, extract and run. Choose the version you want to download (I suggest 2004)
    Mount the iso
    Run Setup.exe
    Reinstall Sledgehammer

    You can also get the Windows 10 ISO file using the Media Creation Tool linked to in post #2.
