    IE 11 & Edge Legacy to be sunset

    August 18th, 2020 by

    Microsoft 365 apps say farewell to Internet Explorer 11 and Windows 10 sunsets Microsoft Edge Legacy

    “Today, we’re announcing that Microsoft 365 apps and services will no longer support Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) by this time next year.

    • Beginning November 30, 2020, the Microsoft Teams web app will no longer support IE 11.
    • Beginning August 17, 2021, the remaining Microsoft 365 apps and services will no longer support IE 11.

    This means that after the above dates, customers will have a degraded experience or will be unable to connect to Microsoft 365 apps and services on IE 11. For degraded experiences, new Microsoft 365 features will not be available or certain features may cease to work when accessing the app or service via IE 11. While we know this change will be difficult for some customers, we believe that customers will get the most out of Microsoft 365 when using the new Microsoft Edge. We are committed to helping make this transition as smooth as possible.”

    Microsoft to soon reveal Universal Print, a cloud-based print infrastructure service that eliminates Print Servers

    “All large organizations require Print Servers which connects printers to client computers over a network. Print Servers manages the jobs initiated by users based on the printer availability. Microsoft is now working on a new service called Universal Print that will eliminate the need for Print Servers. Universal Print is a cloud-based print infrastructure that will enable great print experiences for both users and IT departments. Universal Print can be deployed on Azure and will be available to business and educational organizations of any size.”

    Looks like it may depend on Azure…

    Possible Conflict Windows 10 1909 vs TurboTax

    November 26th, 2019 by

    I haven’t heard of anyone else reporting this, but just in case, here’s what happened:

    I installed the   November Cumulative Update (KB4524570)  followed by Feature update to Windows 10, version 1909 shortly after 1909 was available (yeah, I’m a “bleeding edge” kind of guy!). Both were installed with no apparent issues.

    It was only after I first tried to load TT 2019 that problems popped up. I would get the startup logo, but it would then disappear. The process would show up in Task Manager, but disappear in a second or two. After trying various suggestions via Intuit, I was ready to uninstall one or both of the updates.

    One suggestion was to uninstall TT and reinstall it. When you start the uninstall, TT offers to “repair” the installation. Seemed like worth a try.

    That was my fix. After the “repair”, TT loaded just fine. I’m posting this in case someone else runs into this “conflict”.
