Updating windows 2016 to sp4
But before you make the decision to upgrade, here are a few things to keep in mind: Don’t rush into the upgrade.
Wait until SOLIDWORKS has released versions that officially support Windows 10.
DS SOLIDWORKS released a customer bulletin about compatibility with Windows 10: More information and commentary from our Tech Services Manager: With Microsoft offering Windows 10 as a FREE upgrade, there’s been much more interest in upgrading sooner rather than later.
By then, Microsoft and system vendors will have more time to make sure Windows 10 works well for you, when the time comes to upgrade.
Do not base your decision to move forward with upgrading production machines on such a limited test, or worse, by not doing any advanced testing.
The update, when it does fail, is causing some machines to restart, often multiple times, as Windows 10 attempts to remove the failed update.
Worse, after a restart, the file will attempt to install again resulting in the loop of failed install, reboot, re-install and failure again.
In the end, you can always give it a try and decide if it’s time for an upgrade or not, so go download Windows XP SP4 Unofficial and see if it’s good enough to make you stick with Windows XP.
