    I've tried three different computers, and the key is always named SubscribedContent-310093Enabled. I've also used a registry edit to set this value.What are you seeing that is different?

    Interesting. It appears to have changed since the tutorial was first posted. It's that way for me now in build 16199. What build do you currently have installed?

    Tutorial updated.

    After a lot of testing in VMs, I can confirm that this was changed to using the SubscribedContent-310093Enabled DWORD starting with build 15031.
