As many of you know by now, Microsoft has pushed out an automatic Windows 10 upgrade intended for PC’s running on Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems.
AgTrax plans to distribute a maintenance release to support Windows 10 in the near future-
Since that release is not yet complete and additional testing will be required, this message is to alert our customers that the automatic upgrade to Windows 10 can occur without notification to you and can render any Scale PC running our AgRemote interface unusable.
In order to prevent an untimely upgrade from occurring during this spring’s harvest, we are publishing instructions to allow you the opportunity to postpone it from occurring until it’s more convenient for your organization.
This exercise is easy to implement at your end – the prevention tool described on this webpage needs to be downloaded and run on each AgRemote Scale PC by someone in the organization with Administrator privileges.
We apologize for the late notice and hope everyone has a safe and productive spring harvest.
Gayle L Lewis
Director of Operations
