You may have heard that Microsoft has started updating Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 computers to Windows 10 last night. We are proud to report that for most of our customers, you will need to take no additional steps to make sure that your Stenovations software works with Windows 10!
If you’re a LightSpeed user, you do not need to take any additional steps before switching to Windows 10.
If you’re a digitalCAT user, and you already have digitalCAT installed on your computer, you do not need to take any additional steps before switching to Windows 10.
The only case where you will need to do anything differently is if you are installing digitalCAT on a new Windows 10 computer. You will need to do two things: 1) request a new installer download from us, and 2) make sure that you have an Internet connection during the install.
We have to download some updates to your computer if you’ve never run digitalCAT before. The new version of digitalCAT that we are releasing today, 2015.07.004, can install these updates automatically as long as you’re connected to the internet.
If you need to install digitalCAT to a Windows 10 computer that cannot be connected to the Internet (such as at a court house), please give us a call. The process is a bit long and involved. If you have an IT professional responsible for your computer, it can help to have them available to talk to us. We can walk them through the process to install digitalCAT for you.
As always, if you need any assistance with digitalCAT or LightSpeed, or have any questions regarding Windows 10 or anything else, feel free to contact us.
