How To Allow Windows Updates With RollBack Rx Pro and Reboot Restore Rx Pro
Posted by Kurtis Smejkal on 29 Nov 2018

RollBack Rx Pro and Reboot Restore Rx Pro were recently updated to Version 11, which now allows for Windows 10 Feature Updates (formerly known as Creator Updates) to be installed without any negative effects for your machines. Each program will temporarily disable select elements of the software while the updates are running. This prevents the machine from changing the infrastructure of Windows 10 while affecting our software in a negative way.

First off, you will need to be using Version 11. If you're using an older version of the software and need to upgrade to Version 11, please contact our sales team. You can ask your Sr. Account Executive; or you can always email us at sales@horizondatasys.com, call us at 1-800-496-0148 option 1, submit a ticket, or chat with us using our live chat system.

Once you've installed the appropriate version, there's certain steps to follow to ensure that you are configuring the software correctly.

2) Navigate to Advanced Settings, once there, ensure that the 'Automatically disable Recovery Master Basic to install'

Reboot Restore Rx Pro
