imagesImportant Message for WINDOWS 10 USERS:

It has come to our attention that there are a couple of reoccurring issues coming up with Windows 10 users. If you are having ANY issues with the software after upgrading to Windows 10, please do the following:

1. Change the date in the system to the following format: dd/mm/yyyy. Windows 10, for some unknown reason, changes the default country and, ultimately, the formatting of the date on the computer. This will cause issues with anything that requires you to enter a date into the system. This is done in Control Panel on your Windows 10 computer (not in Autosoft).

2. When entering Autosoft, you may not have the privileges, or emails may not send correctly. The Windows 10 system has even higher security than Windows 8 or 7 had. Therefore, you will need to right click the Autosoft icon and select “Run As Administrator”.

Please take note of these issues and, if you have any further problems, please speak with your IT Consultant.

Have a nice week.

Jonathan
