Windows 10 Update & Reminders

Microsoft has recently changed the Windows 10 upgrade notification on a Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 computer from “optional” to “recommended”. This means if the computer is set to “install all recommended updates”, that system will automatically download the upgrade to the computer. However, the installation of the Windows 10 upgrade will not automatically take place; the user must give permission to install. This can become annoying to the user because they will continually be asked to install this update.

 

Here are a few reminders from our original blog post with regard to Windows 10 and GHIN applications.

 

Windows 10 Upgrade from Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 (assuming GHP and/or TPP client is already installed on the computer)

  • After the upgrade to Windows 10 both GHP and TPP Client open and work as expected.
  • The SQL Manager does not load any longer and an error is generated after the PC restarts (c:\windows\system32\sqlunirl.dll) because the SQL Manager is written to the Startup folder. If you don’t want the error to display, you can remove it from the Startup folder.
  • There is not a way to identify the port number on SQL.
  • The upgraded Windows 10 computer can run as the work station or the server.
  • Handicap Allocation Utility – The utility installs and works however there is some strangeness downloading the file from GHP Online (using the new Edge Browser, Firefox, IE 11, Google). But it does work.
  • The latest versions of Firefox and Google Chrome browsers can successfully be installed.
  • If the user has a Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 and want to upgrade to 10 make sure they install TPP or GHP client BEFORE they upgrade.

 

Windows 10 Computer (including upgrades)

  • GHP and TPP Client programs CANNOT be installed on a new Windows 10 computer.
  • GHP and TPP Client programs CANNOT be freshly installed on an upgraded Windows 10 computer.
  • For golf associations ONLY: It is possible to install TPP Client and point the data path to your online TPP instance to access the database.
  • Handicap Allocation Utility: The utility installs and works however there is some strangeness downloading the file from GHP Online (using the new Edge Browser, Firefox, IE, Google work fine). But it does work.
  • The latest versions of Firefox and Google Chrome browsers can successfully be installed.

 

GHP Golfer

  • If the computer is upgraded to Windows 10 or if this is a new computer running Windows 10, Edge is automatically the default web browser.
  • You will want to change the default browser to Firefox when running GHP Golfer.
  • For additional information on the Edge web browser and other GHIN applications, please see the previous BLOG POST.
