Hey guys, first off I'd like to say we love PDQ here! We are a small 3 man IT shop who runs things for a large Electric Co-op. PDQ has literally saved our lives.
So, here's the issue we're facing. We use 'Classic Shell' company wide here. It brings back the old style start button for everyone if you're not familiar. No one has local admin rights here and after a windows feature update, every time a user logs in, they are prompted for admin credentials to "allow" classic shell to "reconfigure" itself.
We have 132 PC's still running Windows 10 1809 and I want to allow our WSUS to push down 1903 but once that happens, i'm going to have 132 people calling me about the classic shell popup every time they log in. I have a PDQ package that uninstalls/reinstalls Classic Shell which works beautifully and fixes this issue BUT... I need to be able to set up a schedule that recognizes when a PC changes windows versions, it will automatically deploy that package. That way, the user will never be prompted for admin creds and will never know any difference. Is this even possible?
If anyone has any suggestions or other ideas on how to resolve this, please let me know! I know we can just uninstall it company wide and say "deal with the change" but even I myself enjoy the old style button and would like to keep it if we can.
Thanks so much!
