    Homegroup on 1709


    Hey. This may be a redundant question as the latest update to come removes Homegroup entirely but on v1709 has the ability to create a new Homegroup been removed?

    For some reason when I try to create one now it says "Windows can't setup a Homegroup on this computer". Everything that needs to be turned on is including network discovery and the ability to create one works on my Dad's AIO. Just a bit flummoxed as to what it could be.

    Not as far as I am aware.

    As you say, come 1803 the question becomes academic, in the mean time there is a Homegroup Reset Troubleshooter....
