On April 11, Microsoft will release the Windows 10 Creators Update, after which the Windows version will be completely updated. In fact, this update is similar to installing a new operating system, because it will change configurations and encryption keys. The MetaTrader platform uses data binding to an operating system and hardware, in order to protect traders' data. This binding means that even if the platform files are stolen, thieves will not be able to connect to the trader's account or use products purchased from the Market.
Unfortunately, after the operating system change caused by the installation of the Windows 10 Creators Update, all the trading account passwords stored on your computer will become invalid. We highly recommend that you prepare for the new Windows release and save your passwords in a safe place, in order to be able to connect to your accounts after the update.
In addition, due to the change of encryption keys, one activation of applications purchased from the Market will be lost, because all products are bound to an operating system.
We always face problems from Windows. Last night, I came home to a PC waiting for me to login, because Windows 10 decided it was time to update. No warning. No request. Just a reboot. I haven't progressed to the point of trading on a VPS, so I'm running buy and sell triggers in software on my PC. I haven't looked at every pair & time frame that I trade, so I can't say I missed an entry or the related target, but I can say after 30+ years of using Microsoft products, their arrogance is as bad or worse than it ever was.
'We want you to run business critical apps on your PC, but we will reboot your PC during a presentation, or a client VOIP conference call, at our convenience and without warning'
