Hi,

 

I had some issues upgrading to Windows 10 2004 from from 1909. After a few hours of troubleshooting the upgrade and knowing I have regular backups of everything, I blew away the partitions for Windows 10 1909 and reinstalled Windows 2004 using USB install media.

 

Everything seems fine. Everything is working as expected.

Today I went to the about page of settings and look at the Windows Specifications. It reads as follows:

 

Edition: Windows 10 Pro

Version:

Installed on: 2020-8-31

OS build: 19041.450

Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.31.0

 

I have attached a screenshot of the About settings page.

 

I wonder why that is and if it is something that went wrong for my installation or just another bug to be fixed at a later date?

Hello @FooTek,

 

Can you spot the version number in About Windows dialog when you run winver command?

 

Regards. 

I had the same problem when I turned on the new Start menu using a key in the registry

Thanks for the responses guys.

 

The issue was present directly after the final reboot of a new installation. I hadn't installed anything or change anything on the system at the point I noticed it. I new I had version 2004 because when I right clicked the "This PC" icon on desktop and selected properties the Metro based system settings tab appeared focused on the "About" information sheet/tab whatever you call it.

I did not edit the registry.

 

It also displays the same behavior when using ver or winver on the command line.

 

As follows: ver -

 

C:\Users\yodamin>ver

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19041.450]

 

Winver -

It really isn't that big of a deal to me, but if there is a solution I'd implement it.

Hello @FooTek,
