Windows 10 version 1803 April / Spring update 2018

Postby IainStinson » Wed May 02, 2018 6:07 am

Yesterday I installed the April / Spring update to Windows and am now running Windows 10 Pro Version 1803. So far, this is working fine with current release of Hauptwerk. It has improved the performance of unloading an organ (which happens automatically when you load a different organ to play and when you exit Hauptwerk). Unloading an organ now seems similar to take about the same time as it did before the Windows update which caused Windows’ memory release to become significantly slower.

The installation worked relatively smoothly. I checked the changes I had made to Windows Power Management, file indexing were carried across the update (they were) and turned off a few of the services (particularly SuperFetch) which can impact services. I made sure that my audio system driver had not been changed by the update.

The same update was applied to our non Hauptwerk Windows computers and also seems to be working well.

I’d be interested to hear from any others about this update.

After the update i experienced lots of glitches.
The update enabled superfetch again.
After disabling superfetch everything seems to work fine again! Untill the next update i guess :(

I got those glitches as well after the update... Really asked myself if I would continue using Windows to run Hauptwerk!

Hopefully I saw your post... And indeed "superfetch" service was running again on my PC. Quickly deactivated it.

Thanks for noticing that!

Same here: disabling Superfetch is vital to get glitch free running.
