    I was running a program on my Windows 10 computer Build 1709 that was located on my Windows 2003 server. The executable was located on the server. I upgraded to 1803 and it no longer works. A second computer did the same thing and I was able to go back to build 1709 and it started working again. I can't go back on the computer that still has 1803 because it's been more than 10 days or 7 or whatever. Research was pointing to the probability it was an SMB share issue. I saw that supposedly 1803 does not support SMBV1 which is what Server 2003 is using. However, I go into the Windows features settings and is shows SMBv1 checked off. When I run -get smbconfiguration or whatever in powershell it returns the version as 1.5. Anyway, I also saw some suggest to install AVG or Avast which disables Defender. I've done that and did not work. I've tried running it in compatibility mode and that didn't work. Looking for suggestions. If it is an SMB issue, there is no way we are upgrading the server at this time. I can resinstall Windows on the workstation if I have to, but I would love to avoid it enough that I joined this site and posted for the first time hoping someone can offer another suggestion. Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply. As I mentioned, I went to Windows "Turn Windows features on or off" and SMB 1.0/CIFS client was already checked off. Does something else need to be done to enable it? Thanks.

    yes, read the link fully. It tells you how to enable it
    use either option 4 or 5 and reboot both computer & server

    it says you only need to reboot computer, but I have seen reports that both need rebooting

    I'm not sure what difference it makes from the command line when it was already checked off in features, but did it anyway, command ran successfully, rebooted, same problem. Now, I haven't rebooted the server....doesn't seem like it would be necessary, but worth a try. Will let you know when I get to it if it works. Thanks.

    Duhhh, I tried setting to compatibility mode on the workstation. I'll try it on the server and see what happens. Thanks.

    Oh, Windows 2003 server doesn't have Windows 8 compatibility mode of course. It has 98, 95 and xp which I tried. Looks like I am seeing a wipe and reinstall to Windows 10 1709 on the workstation unless you have some other suggestion. Thanks.
