Upgrade Administrative Computers from Windows 10 - 1511?

Postby Rick.Winterton » Tue Aug 01, 2017 6:18 am

Are there any plans to upgrade unit administrative computers, currently running Windows 10 version 1511 (OS Build 10586.962)? My understanding is that Microsoft will no longer provide updates for them past approximately October 2017

The Church already sends Windows updates when it deems necessary. I expect they will make a decision in this case, as well, and send it through in the normal manner if they decide to push it out.

I noticed our stake computer seemed to do a major update just this past Sunday. When I say "major" it took much longer than the normal monthly update.

If you enter "Winver" at the Run menu, Windows will show you the version. Mine are all 1511, which is to be obsoleted soon.

Hopefully, the church administrative software service is running on all your computers. You should have installed Tivoli when you installed those computers.

It's installed. I'm just wondering if the Church is going to allow the software to run without updates?

The Church actively manages the internal desktops used by CHQ employees, the Ward and Branch computers are after-thoughts to what they do. I doubt they are looking at it too seriously.
