This means that users no longer have to manually check for updates and the complete downloading process will be done via Windows Update. The updated has been rolled out to all the Windows 10 systems without any input from the user. So, you don’t need to be an advanced user to receive the latest update.

Last year, an issue was identified by Microsoft that had restricted the Morphisec Protector or application from using the Morphisec Software Development Kit (SDK).

Users encountered the issue when they tried to save the documents in Microsoft office application via “Save As” dialogue.

Microsoft recommends users to upgrade to the latest versions of the apps before upgrading to Windows 10 (version 1809).
