HyperSpin 1.5.1 Not Working after Windows 10 Patch

My machine was in storage for over a year due to a recent move and when I powered it back on, Windows did its critical updates.  On 5/15/21 it installed Win 10 Pro patch 20H2.  Since that time, I cannot get HyperSpin to run  no matter what I do.  This happened to me before.  The last time there was a patch that a user shared with me.  I am hoping for the same.  Thanks

Some users reported that old sxs.dll into HS folder works also on 20H2, please try it and check windows defender exception, with version change it may tends to reset rules.

Thank you both for the advice

I will give those ideas a shot. I have my machine set to download updates but not install them but this must have been a critical update that overrides that. 

Every time I see an update install its pucker time! :)

Windows updates has become a plague, everytime the thing is updated something stopped working. I install new windows versions only when the support cease, infact I updated to 2004 this week. I was asked to uninstall virtualbox and the system uninstalled cpu-z. No problem at all, after the update I installed the new versions of virtualbox and cpu-z but just think to a place where virtualbox is used ro run old software and there are no people who knows how to fix the thing...

On the HTPC I just installed W10 LTSC, 10 years of security updates without version change 😛

I had to reinstall Windows and I went straight to version 21H1, copying the sxs.dll file from my previous build makes Hyperspin work without problems.
I also deactivate Windows Defender in Group Policy since I don't need it.

There's the unexpected Windows 11 coming soon, my PC isn't even compatible with the new OS, I believe MS is leaving behind all older CPUs which were vulnerable against the Meltdown and Spectre stuff. I plan on updating my hardware in the next two years.

Maybe Hyperspin will keep on working in Windows 11 provided we have the required dll. Longe live Hyperspin's zombie years.
