In its tribute to the first Windows operating system, Microsoft will unleash a special edition Windows 1.11, a simulation of the original 1.0 OS, on July 8.
If you are done binging the third season of Stranger Things, you can now download a new piece of content to extend the experience: Microsoft Windows 1.11. As predicted and hinted, this blast from the '80s past is a crossover with Stranger Things season 3.
According to the latest update from Microsoft, "The Remote Access Connection Manager (RASMAN) service may stop working and you may receive the error "0xc0000005" on devices where the diagnostic data level is manually configured to the non-default setting of 0".
Stranger Things season 3 is set in 1985, which coincidently is also the year Windows 1.0 was released, and to celebrate, Microsoft has released the Windows 1.11 app for Windows 10. More details about this tie-in can be found on Microsoft's new Stranger Things site or on the Camp Know Where page.
Initial speculation was that Microsoft was going to release an open-source Windows 1.0 via GitHub, like it recently did with the Calculator app. But fair warning: "beware the Mind Flayer", it added.
Apple refreshes MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, discontinues 12-inch MacBook
That identity clearly didn't stick, however, as after years of neglect Apple breathed new life into the Air model last fall. By the way, despite their names, the 12 MacBook was both thinner and lighter than the Air (but had a wimpy CPU ).
Launch SubKey Windows Registry and browse to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection. Windows 1.11 is a retro Stranger Things PC app.
Students above the age of 13 can also visit "Camp Know Where", which is essentially a workshop conducted by Microsoft, to learn to make a Stranger Things video with mixed reality or 3D, or code their own video game and rule the arcade with show character Mad Max.
Additionally, fans have a chance to win a prize package that includes a Stranger Things mini arcade cabinet (for display only), an Xbox One X, and one year of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Retweet or like the sweepstakes posts on the Xbox Twitter or Facebook to enter.
Our interest was piqued on July 5 when Microsoft tweeted another video.
