  • Windows 10 upgrades and updates - caution advised regarding impacts to PC-DMIS and software functionality.

    Windows upgrades and updates have a potential for creating issues.

    (1) Users of PC-DMIS and other Hexagon software products should be aware that incompatibilities and issues can arise when a Windows Update impacts PC-DMIS behavior.

    For instance, new adoptees of Windows 10, Version 1709 (sometimes called Build 1709, corresponds to OS Build 16299. Source: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-info.aspx ) are experiencing an issue with ghosting/screen refresh while using PC-DMIS and other software.  This issue is not present with prior builds of Windows 10. Users may wish to use a Restore Point to return the system to a prior working condition.  
    To find out what version and build of Windows 10, see: http://www.ilicomm.com/how-to-find-out-which-build-and-version-of-windows-10-you-have/

    (2) Users of PC-DMIS and other Hexagon software products should be aware of issues when software versions not approved for Windows 10 are run on this platform.

    Versions of PC-DMIS 2015.1 and newer are compatible with Windows 10.
