Hello, I just have updated to 1809. My Classic Shell is version 4.3.1

Problem:

When trying to open the classic shell start menu it appears, disappears, appears, disappears.... so it flickers several times and then disapears so that I can't select anything. So Classic shell currently is not useable. It does not depend on the skin, tryed several of the default skins.

That's odd.

Looking at TenForums site:

https://www.tenforums.com/software-apps ... 751784ed88

I see entries of people updating to 1809 with Classic shell 4.3.1 without any problem.



People on GitHub say Classic Shell 4.3.1 works on 1809:

https://github.com/Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu/issues/86



If you are using an insider edition, there are many beta versions, and they are not going to work, because they are buggy.

To get it to work you will have to download "Open-Shell" v4.4.131 instead:

https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/detail ... start.html


Good luck, you may need it.

Edit: Possible bad news

Even though this has nothing to do with Classic Shell,
be careful when updating to Win 10 1809 official release.

It is BUGGY as well.

Some people on net are complaining the update deleted their personal files.
All my documents, pictures, music are still intact.
If updating, be sure to backup your personal files before the update process.

Also, if you use any type of file/folder locker software, you may not be able to access anymore, unless entry from safe mode/ another system.
Your locker password could become invalid after Win 10 1809 update. Yes, crazy.

Win 10 needs more QC.
The same thing happened to a company I worked for. To save money, they went from 100% test/QC
to 20%, then 2 out of the batch, then finally none.

Microsoft re-released 1809 today. I read they are still fixing some small issues to come out later in the month.
I just updated with the smaller updates to get build 17763.134
Good news!
Classic Shell keeps on ticking :)
Hooray
