    There used to be a visible option during initialization / install to create a local account, now it looks like you are forced to sign in to an existing MS account - or sign up for a MS account - but I found an easy way through - I used a bad password and it let me pass through to using a local account... it may have also been a bad login username - I banged through it pretty quickly. :)

    When setting up new users it tried to do the same thing.

    Another option I was considering until the bad MS login worked was to create a dummy MS account and then after install delete that account (or keep it for new installs only) and switch to a local account after install.

    Keeping an image of an install with a local account login to install on new hardware is another option, but less good considering the variety of hardware - it's easier to use the built image for a laptop that came with it when initializing.

    Just don't allow any internet connection and the push for a Micro$lop account will fail. Once it fails you can choose the option for a "domain" or "work" account (or something worded in a similarly deceptive manner) instead of an online account. Then you don't have to deal with the bogus accounts and what not. I refuse to purchase or leave installed any "Home" version of Windows, so I don't know with 100% certainly it works with the noob peasant versions of Windows.

    I hope people won't get rebounded from Win 10 to Linux as an effect of Vibranium.

    14 years ago, and things haven't changed in the Redmond zoo :O)

    "The Committee to Fight Microsoft", 2005:
    "Bill Gates sells the public defective products, and then expects us to spend years being his guinea pigs, while he corrects the myriad of defects and vulnerabilities in his defective code."

    ^^^ Ref. the above posted article.

    "With the release of the August 2019 security updates, Microsoft has released 2 advisories and updates for 94 vulnerabilities. Of these vulnerabilities, 26 are classified as Critical. "

    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/ne...-2019-patch-tuesday-fixes-95-vulnerabilities/

    94\26 this time. How many 100's they don't know about yet? How many through the years, 1000? 10000? How can anyone release such products to the general public, governments, health, banks, defense etc. Incompetent, blind, stupid? Time for a namechange: Windows Swiss Cheese.

    Contractors Listening to Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant, & Skype Audio – Apple & Google Suspend Their Programs But Microsoft Refuses to Back Down wccftech.com | Aug 16, 2019

    Microsoft updates its privacy policy admitting humans listening to recordings
    “The fact that I can even share some of this with you shows how lax things are in terms of protecting user data,” the Microsoft contractor who sent the files to Motherboard said. While Microsoft isn’t the only company being “lax” with user data, it certainly is the first one to update its terms and conditions to include “human analysis” to avoid any future troubles. Since no one actually reads those documents, the company will have a solid pathway to keep doing things the way it is currently doing."

    Visual Basic issues in Windows August 2019 Updates Ghacks.net | Aug 16, 2019

    Closing Words
    An issue that affects all different versions of Visual Basic on all supported versions of Windows, that is a major one. Microsoft really needs to rethink testing and evaluating of updates to avoid major breakage like this from happening especially if it concerns in-house products like Visual Basic.
