Software Update

ITS is deploying a Windows operating system update to WPI-owned computers.

Why

Regular updates are made to maintain the security and functionality of WPI-owned computers.

Impact

Computers should remain powered on and may reboot during the process.

Conference room computers that are powered on will receive the update and automatically reboot, leaving them in a ready state for meetings.

For computers that are powered off or disconnected from the WPI network, anticipate the update to run once the machine powers-on and connects to the WPI network. The machine may prompt for a reboot when the update has completed.

Action Needed

For ITS-Managed WPI-Owned Computers, prior to leaving please prepare for the updates as follows:

  • Save all of your work and close all programs.
  • Log off of your computer.
  • Leave the computer powered on.
