I just set up a fresh install of build 1903 and could make a local account. Stinks that this is happening but maybe disconnecting from the web will be the first thing people start doing before a new install.

An always online req was actually discussed and considered at length. AFAIK Office 365 ended up coming out of that in the end. And Office 365 was a way to gauge user's willingness to pay subscription pricing rather than a buy once model, which was to be next for windows itself. It's really fascinating stuff, and there's a boatload of things that almost were but ended up being rolled into other projects.

They didn't remove the option, it's just a nudge and definitely not a well thought out one. If they did make a login account a requirement, they would be late to the party compared to apple and Google. That would be a major issue for repair issue though, so I really don't see that happening.

It's the same thing they did for making a local profile on games for windows live titles back with gta4 etc years ago.. the option is still there but it's blue text that looks like a link instead of a button.

Have you tried installing from a usb 2 port?

Otherwise your installer might be the issue. Then you'll have to make a new installer usb.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Hi,
All this offline account stuff will probably change to a temporary account soon after win-7 support ends and everyone will be annoyed even more than now to switch to ms email account.
Windows defender already gets rabid to switch to turn on account protection features restricted folders.....

And since the first recommendation to fix bugs for updates failing.... from any support is either clean install or refresh install the trait will continue
10 is the ware you down os, defender is the means to annoy along with many action center degradation from past versions.

I'd rather be eol using win-7 than dealing with 10 all the time
