FYSA, this past week's Microsoft update for Win 10 has reportedly broken some people's audio system. Do you know for sure it's a hardware problem?
That is most likely the patch that plugs a hole in SMBv3 (Samba) - I've also noticed several reports on that - it only affects vers. 1903 and 1909 of Win10. Ironically, earlier ver., 1809 and earlier, are not affected by the SMBv3 hole and have received no patch. Link with info. on the patch here (https://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-patches-smbv3-wormable-bug-that-leaked-earlier-this-week/
). Also good is the Ask Woody site, for info. (https://www.askwoody.com/2020/wides...ative-update-kb-4551762-the-smbv3-patch/
I suppose this is a good opportunity to put in a quick bit of info. for any Mac users here - if anyone is in BootCamp on a Mac, running WOFFue/pe on the Win10 side - and if you are running ver. 1809 of Win10, as I am - recommended is to proceed cautiously if upgrading to ver. 1903 and 1909 - particularly if you want maximal fps in WOFF. I'm having a great time in ver. 1809 but it is going "out of support" sometime in May of this year. I only do Win updates manually in my install for now, and, when not updating, I block any Win10 updates using the following little program, WUB (https://www.ghacks.net/2019/12/12/w...can-disable-updates-with-a-single-click/
Those who like blocking Win10 updates using Win settings themselves might want to check over this link (https://www.windowscentral.com/how-stop-updates-installing-automatically-windows-10
). Keep in mind that several of those settings are available only in Win "Pro" versions and higher. Therefore I prefer using WUB.
NOTE: These suggestions are primarily for Mac users who have Win partitions installed mainly for WOFF/FE2, other WW1 sims, etc. - and if you don't need to have a fully updated Win10 variant since you don't access the internet regularly from the Win end of things anyway - but do most of your regular computing on the Mac side.
