Windows 7 to Windows 8 Upgrade issues
October 29, 2012 February 20, 2020
- 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.
