    What version does winver report on these franken 20H2 installs? Did the registry change undo any other 20H2 changes that you've observed so far like Start tiles color? Thanks

    HI Brink,
    I am trying to do an in-place upgrade of my Windows 10 20H2 (compilation 19042.630), I always give up as it says that cannot keep my files and programs because my Windows must be in another folder not supported or it is a newer version.
    I have downloaded version 20H2 from media creation tool.
    Do you have a solution for this?
    Many thanks
    I have a batch file that fixes this, at least temporarily, so you can do a Repair Install. I've tested it as has one other person.

    Here is a zip file that includes SETACL.EXE. Unzip to any folder, double click on Allow_20H2_Repair_Install_Keep_Everything.bat and it should work so you can do the Repair Install and keep everything.

    It makes a backup of the registry key here: %temp%\EditionVersion.Backup.reg

    Allow_20H2_Repair_Install_Keep_Everything.zip

    I forgot to get a screenshot of the winver, but I do remember it because it was kinda weird. Said 20H2 19041.508. Not likely.

    After playing with it to ensure it would survive restarts, warm and cold, I put the .reg entries back from the Export save I did. Not knowing how or what, I didn't want to leave it "doped up".

    Just finished installing the CU on my Laptop. winver shows this:

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade-image.png

    Registry key looks like this:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EditionVersion
    EditionBuildBranch REG_SZ vb_release
    EditionBuildLab REG_SZ 19041.vb_release.191206-1406
    EditionBuildLabEx REG_SZ 19041.1.amd64fre.vb_release.191206-1406
    EditionBuildNumber REG_DWORD 0x4a62
    EditionBuildQfe REG_DWORD 0x276

    Downloading 20H2 19042.620 from UUP Dump now. Will try a Repair Install once I have that to see if I get the Keep Programs and Apps choice.

    Thanks for the update . I think I'll just continue waiting on 20H2 to fix Task Manager.
