Windows 7 to Windows 8 Upgrade issues

by filip 29. October 2012 12:39
  • Requires 20GB of free space to upgrade
  • If CScript was registered as the default script host in Windows 7, it will be replaced by WScript. To fix this, run CMD with administrative privileges, and execute the following command:
    cscript //h:cscript //s
  • Network printer settings were lost. Had to reattach printer.
  • IIS7 settings were lost. Virtual directories/applications were gone. Also, installed features were missing. I had to reinstall the server side includes feature using control panel, and I needed to redo the handler mappings in IIS so that they were processed by the module.
