[Winaero] Microsoft locks some Group Policy options to Enterprise editions in Windows 10 Anniversary Update - Page 24

post #231 of 237
If the Pro version has been limited in some of its functionalities, has anybody ever considered upgrading their Win10 Pro version to Win10 Enterprise edition?

If you have a legit product key, then read this one:

Once you switch to Enterprise version, you have all the features that you originally had from the original Pro edition, plus some other extra stuff that you only get from Enterprise version.

Until MS decides that its time to close that loophole... rolleyes.gif And seeing how they watered down the pro version and the monthly subscription model for the enterprise they will do it sooner or later.

Well, this thread had been resting for six days now, but if you must, did you read the article in the OP? Changing the corresponding registry values in the Anniversary Edition has no effect. It's written there in very clear terms.

There is another article with a workaround for one of those things - the unwanted apps, here, which involves creating a new rule in the Applocker Packaged app Rules. Until they decide to block that. Coming from a company that coming to the launch of Windows 8 actively blocked user made rules to boot straight to the desktop, I can't rule that out at this point.

Anyway, that only solves one of the three, and honestly, customers shouldn't have to play this recurring game of cat and mouse to get back functionality that they paid for to begin with.

I have a cat for the mousing - no need to play it with M$ too.
