I'd be concerned that my astro software wouldn't work correctly, took me a while to get it running the way it is.

Bo offence.  You cant say that yet. They have just released the RTM. Go live is next week. Also its the OEMs that need to release the correct drivers for all there equipment. I have had nouthing but a postive experience so far with 10.

Until till they do bring the new drivers out witch won't be any time soon then it's still no good for ppl that do astro work yes we will have to wait but will it be worth all the grief to up date and can't do nothing. Like my self and others have there laptop setup and working the way they want it to. I use windows 7 never had any problems with it I bought a new laptop with windows 8 can't use my guide cam even I have the drivers I now have new hard drive in it and windows 7 on it. Just need to wait and see what happens i won't be upgrading to it.

For windows 8. Old drivers from win 7 can be used if driver sig is disabled on boot.

10 is the same. Most issues are with x86/x64 support.

There are mothods to get older legacy driver ect to work.

Well I have Windows 10 installed on my desktop as a test before moving over to the laptop and everything seems to be working fine so far. I just need to test the planetary camera later and then I will feel fine with upgrading the laptop.

There is a facility in 10 to roll back to the previous OS. You have 30 days to day. Not sure how well it works tho

Un-install the KB3035583 , reboot, then update and change your update settings to "Download Updates but choose whether to let me install them" Check for updates and un-tick that KB3035583 patch. It is a recommended and not critical anyway. Also make sure the "Received Recommended update the same way etc etc " is un-ticked.


So even if you have signed up it won't force it on you. It did it to me and thankfully failed!!! I have removed the "Windows 10 Upgrade Readyness update KB3035583" so now it should never try again.


I am the Global Build Deployment Specialist for Standard Life and have been doing builds for 14 years.....my advice for you all, is to let others feel the pain first!!


I for one shall not be updating anything as I have no idea if any of my ascom software works ,financial apps etc etc will work. They might but I am not risking it yet.


Windows 7 is supported till 2020 anyway.

All my processing Software works (Astrostakkert, PIPP, Registax, DSS)
Stellarium works
Cartes du Cie
Sharpcap works but I need to test the driver for the webcam


I haven't tested EQMOD or PhD but it seems to have a few okay from SGL so far. To be honest, neil isn't wrong when he says others should feel your pain first if you are worried about it. I ain't that bothered as I do at times quite enjoy the chaos of trying to find the right drivers etc. To be honest, I am having less issue with 10 that I was when I moved to 8 in that everything so far is working..

This is a security bulletin from the MCT-SafeComputing-List.
An archive of all Safe Computing bulletins, including any updates, can be found at http://safecomputing.open.ac.uk/bulletins/safe-computing-bulletins .

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B U L L E T I N   (ID: HKRI-9Z2L9B)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Imagine this scenario: a friend visits your house, and wishes to use your Wi-Fi.
You tell your friend your Wi-Fi password in confidence. They type it into their laptop, which has recently been upgraded to Windows 10. Your friend's laptop can now use your Wi-Fi connection, and you're fine with that. After all, they're your friend. You don't believe they are going to abuse the privilege. If you've chosen a complex, lengthy password like 7sAp {oMEmGD#YT)MzGdTLQM9C then chances are that your friend is not going to be able to remember your Wi-Fi password, even if they wanted to break your confidence. So far, so good.

But there's some bad news.
And that bad news is that your friend has Windows 10 installed on their laptop. And Windows 10 has a password-sharing feature called Wi-Fi Sense enabled by default. Requiring just a click and the password being re-entered by your friend, Wi-Fi Sense allows your friend's Skype and Outlook/Hotmail contacts (if they use Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile) to also log onto your Wi-Fi network, without you having to share your password with them. Access can also be shared with your friend's Facebook friends if they choose to allow that.

In other words, complete strangers could now use your Wi-Fi without your permission. And the password is now stored on Microsoft's server.

Microsoft's answer? If you don't want Wi-Fi Sense to scoop up your password when you share it with a friend, and then share it with that friend's friends and contacts you have to rename your Wi-Fi network.

Safe computing!
