I took the plunge on upgrading on my main machine. These were the hiccups:
- I have a DisplayLink USB/DVI adapter for an external monitor. The “compatibility check” Windows runs prior to upgrading failed to catch that I needed to install the latest driver. It just was a blank screen after upgrading. So I had to get it manually from here and fortunately it seems to be work (otherwise I’d have to rush out and buy a new adapter).
- Vagrant somehow forgot the network interface it had been using prior and didn’t find the network interfaces installed. Upon up, it asks “default: which interface should the network bridge to?” which is described in this issue. So I had to upgrade VirtualBox to the latest 5.0.x test build (which is semi-compatible with Windows 10), and upgrade Vagrant to v1.7.4 to work with it. Then upon reboot and relaunch of Vagrant I was able to pick the interface I wanted (although it still seems to forget my selection each time).
- My PuTTY keys quietly disappeared from the Pageant key list and had to be re-added manually. Seem to work now though.
- TortoiseGit overlay icons all disappeared as per this issue which appears to point to OneDrive (which I have no intention of using) as the culprit. I followed the steps in my comment there to work around it.
Still open: Windows Search was not indexing any program directories, so it couldn’t find any applications at all! So I manually added all the Program directories, and we’ll see if it works.
