Some may want to remove the insider preview evaluation watermark.
Is this download / tutorial specific to only to the system requirement not met watermark or is it for any watermark that may appear in the right lower corner?

Hello mate, :-)

Correct. This is only for the "System requirements not met" bit of the watermark.

I just got a requirement check failed, because my Asus motherboard only has TPS 1.1 not 2.0. I clicked dismiss. a money grab, because no one normally needs tps.

I think I used something similar, you can also do it manually in the registry. But. like the latest news is they are looking for ways to stop people from getting around the checks. More $$ for them, but b.s. reasons why.
