Quick Start Guide for Cygnet® ILF HD module
At the moment Microsoft is offering a free upgrade to Windows 10 and many users are asking themselves whether they should follow this offer and what this would mean for their Neurofeedback system.
For all users with a Windows 7 or 8.1 operating system, Microsoft is offering a free upgrade to Windows 10. This offer is valid for one year, i.e. until July 29, 2016.
From our experience of the past 20 years, we recommend to wait with an update at least until the first "Service Pack" has been released, which usually takes about one year. This strategy is the best way to avoid all the troubles that usually come with the "ripening process" of a Microsoft product.
Furthermore, we don't recommend to change the operating system at all; the prices for new computers are so low that it is not worth the efforts that are required to install a new operating system (unless you enjoy tinkering with PCs).
But what to do when the favorite store only offers computers with Windows 10 as operating system?
We recommend to be patient and look for further offers. It is still possible to get new computers with Windows 7 - an operating system that is supported by Microsoft until the year 2020.
However, please note that the Microsoft offer for a free update to Windows 10 is valid until the end of July 2016.
WHAT ABOUT WINDOWS 10 & CYGNET?
Initial tests have shown that Cygnet probably will run without problems in a Windows 10 environment. However, Cygnet is not yet approved for Windows 10. We are working on that but we will not release Cygnet for Windows 10 until the operating system is reasonably stable and until the drivers have been qualified.
HOW TO GET RID OF THE BOTHERSOME "WINDOWS 10 UPDATE" NOTIFICATION IN THE TASK BAR?
Recently, Microsoft has released an Update "KB3035583", which was classified as "important" and thus, was automatically installed on most computers. This update leads to the permanent appearance of the "free Windows 10 update" offer in the Windows task bar. To get rid of this advertisement, either ask your PC-Supporter or open the Update Center and uninstall "KB3035583".
