On the 11th of April, 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.
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.
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 will automatically add one
activation for each purchased product, regardless of the operating
system, similar to the activations that we added after the Windows 10
update from version 1511 to 1607. It means that you will not lose your
product activations after the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update.
Activations of demo products will also be lost, you will need to re-download such applications from the Market.
This means that users with a desktop plus laptop activation will only have 1 activation remaining after this update, and will then have zero after the next windows 10 service pack due around the end of the year.
This seems to be making a bit of a mockery of the licensing scheme currently in place. What is the point in having 5 activations if the end users can only renew 1 of them after several Windows service packs?
Thanks, that's great to know. We will politely send those users your way.
(However the number of "compex cases" will increase dramatically after the next service pack so you might want to consider a better solution before next year)
It's not what is stated in the first post :
We will automatically add one
activation for each purchased product...
1 product => +1 activation.
If I have 1 product installed simultaneously on 2 (or more PC) I will be credited by 2 activations (or more) ?
Do I get it right that after system's update I will re-enter password and will be able to save it as usual? In other words, I won't need to re-enter it many times.

Windows Hacking tool released and Microsoft said with upgrades users are protected
But after Windows 10 last pdating I can't work MT4 strategy tester
<Expert properties><Start>Button click disabled
I had the same problem with version 1703, re-installing MT4 does not work, all you can do is revert to the previous Windows build:
StartButton->Settings->Upgrade & Security->Recover->Go back to last Build
This will get MT4 running again, but I don't know how long it will last before Windows forces another update.
