    Windows 10.0.14393 build 14393

    My Results Creators Update 1703


    Hi all;
    070917- 4.33pm-est
    My updated as noted from Windows version is 10.0.14393 build 14393 aka 1607
    to Creators Update 1703 produced the following results.

    This is the first time an update with the same version number to just a new build has
    forced me to roll back to the previous build.
    Reason(s) Build (1703) rendered the one program I use all the time
    as inoperative. Compatibility did not solve it.
    MS also removed the ability to change system font types
    and size, or to bold - however - that can be overcome by
    installing an app. named System-Font-Changer.
    The question remains.why did MS remove that feature? Many of
    us older folks have very reduced eye sight. Contrast change makes
    it worse.

    Many other people have noted other issues to numerous to mention.
    For now, Im stuck at 14393 aka 1607. If I move forward, I lose an important
    data based program that works just fine in build 1607
    and has been in use for years.
    The old saying, If it ain't broke, dont fix it. applies here with
    Windows 1703 rolled back from the abyss.

    It's a program from '80s, did you check if they released some new version or an update ?.

    Thanks for reply.
    The post was intended as info. not a plea
    for help.
    Paradox 11 works just fine.
    Paradox 7 does not.
    My apps are created with Paradox 7
    so I want to continue using as long as possible
    regarding backwards compatibility.
    Clearly, Build 1703 update will make that impossible.
    Therefore, I will postpone the update on all machines
    except one. It will get updated and we'll see what
    happens with future updates.

    That's a problem with 10. You can postpone but not indefinitely. Already build 1507 is EOL and is getting no security updates.
    By policy, devices need to install the latest feature update within a 60-day grace period of its release to continue to be eligible for monthly servicing with security updates and other quality updates. We extended this grace period for version 1507 beyond this typical 60-day policy, but the time has now come to end servicing for version 1507.*

    It is a worry if you have older hardware or software as you can never tell how much longer it will continue to work although I've been lucky so far.

    That feature is probably because most software engineers are in their 20s, have perfect eyesight and pay no concern to the needs of their users. Removing this feature was a really stupid decision. Why provide various accessibility features yet remove the ability to change UI font sizes? I know there is a tutorial to fix this on the forum but users should not have to resort to these solutions.

    You hit nail on the head.

    In my case two of the three are true
