Korg USB driver no longer works after Windows 10 Version 1903 update

After the version 1903 update, my Korg Kronos MIDI keyboard no longer can communicate via USB.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers but the problem cannot be fixed.  I tried following the instruction of a manual fix to the registry covered in the article at:

however I am not versed at making changes with Regedit and do not know how to add a second "midi2 entry under a single "Alias" name.  Can anyone share any information concerning this problem?

There will be a branch for each device, so for me there was 021 for the Radias and 022 for the Minilogue.
So you add the alias part for each korg device you can in the control sub key
If used Find to find any keys with the Driver of KORGUM64.DRV

I found this article: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/strange-midi-port-problem-10-port-limitation/a8578d90-6d5e-4ec6-a444-54f21428eac1?tm=1554226412468

I observed that midi6 was not used, so I changed the Korg driver to use (all 3 places, under the class Media, under Drivers32 and Setup\Upgrade...\USB ) it instead of midi1.  Now when you run the Korg Uninstall Utility, the "KORG KRONOS <Connected>" shows up on the first screen as "midi6", however "Standard Driver [KRONOS] <Connected>" still shows up on the second screen as "midi10".  Even after getting to this point, the driver is still not recognized.  I am almost ready to let Windows restore it self back to the previous version.  I hate to give up trying to get this to work!

I dug into this pretty deeply , tried a number of Registry changes, but could never get thinks to work.  Yesterday, I rolled back the PC that is connected via USB to the Kronos to the prior version (1809) of Windows.  After comparing a number of Registry entries that I captured between version 1903 and 1809, I have a bad feeling that Microsoft may have screwed up more than just the Korg issue; because of the way other entries in the Media Class look hosed up in the Registry, makes me wonder what else is messed up there.  I have another PC where all of my piano VST's run, which also has the new version of Windows installed.  When I brought that machine up, the Yamaha USB driver for the Steinberg UR22mkII did not work, but simply reinstalling it fixed it-- because of what I saw in the Registry on the first machine is making me consider rolling back Windows there as well-- once the "old" Windows folder is automatically removed (I think in 30 days).  I am not a Microsoft basher, but I think everyone should avoid not installing this new update until all of the dust settles, and we find out the true extent of possible damage.

Well, I tried to restore to the prior version of Windows (1809) on my second machine, but I can not--- you only have 10 days, not 30, before Windows automatically deletes the contents of the "old" Windows.old folder.  Since there does not appear that a copy of the old registry is stored anywhere on the PC, if Microsoft later determines they damaged it during the upgrade, there is no way to programmatical fix it...

You HAVE to make the same changes in the WOW6432Node in the registry as well.  It didn't work for me until after I did that.  I missed that the first few times I tried to get it working.
