Problems Between ZoomText 10.11.9 in Windows 10 “Fall Creators Update”

Attention users of ZoomText 10.1:

The current release of ZoomText 10.1, version 10.11.9 (and earlier), is not compatible with the Windows 10 “Fall Creators Update,” which Microsoft began rolling out to the public on October 17th. If you are running Windows 10, we recommend that you DO NOT install the Fall Creators Update before you have installed the ZoomText 10.11.10 update, which is expected to release during the week of October 23rd. Here’s why…

Installing the Fall Creators Update before the ZoomText 10.11.10 update will block your ability to update ZoomText and cause applications to become unstable and crash when running your current installation of ZoomText. Installing the ZoomText 10.11.10 update before you install the Fall Creators Update will eliminate these problems.

If you are already encountering these problems, please contact the VFO Technical Support Team or your VFO dealer for assistance and options.
