Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to make saved MetaTrader passwords invalid
MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2017.10.18 12:55
On October 17, Microsoft officially released a major update of their operating system Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
This update affects configurations and encryption keys similar to the
installation of a new Windows operating system. In order to protect user
information, the MetaTrader platform binds all data to the operating
system and hardware of the computer, on which it is installed. This
protection method ensures that even if the platform files are stolen,
hackers will not be able to access the trader's accounts or to use
products purchased from the Market.
Unfortunately, after the installation of Windows 10 Fall Creators
Update, all 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.
Also, the launch of installed and activated applications that were
purchased from the Market will not be possible due to the change of
encryption keys. Such products will require a new activation, because
all products are bound to an operating system. We will automatically
provide an additional activation for all products purchased from the
Market regardless of the operating system, similar to providing
additional activations after the previous release of Windows 10 Creators
Update. So MetaTrader Market users will not lose product activations
after the installation of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
Activations of demo products will also be lost, and you will need to re-download such applications from the Market.
