Posted by Adam Zilliax on 29 July 2021 04:18 PM
Faronics is happy to announce the availability of Deep Freeze 8.63.
This release is a bugfix release that resolves several customer issues including;
Customers should be aware that the issues described in issue 28484 had multiple potential causes, and that during the investigation it was found that an issue with a component of the Windows OS itself was a contributing factor.
Our developers have worked with Microsoft and have been able to resolve the issue with fixes that we have put in place in our product along with an updated component for Windows provided by Microsoft. Microsoft has informed us that this component will be released in an upcoming update. When further details are available regarding this update we will post details here.
As there are multiple causes for this issue we have still seen significant reductions, if not complete resolution of this specific issue even without the updated component from Microsoft. As such we have decided to release this update ahead of the update for Windows to ensure that affected customers are able to see benefits from this release as soon as possible.
Customers running our Cloud-based offerings will automatically be updated to this release during their next maintenance window if your policy is configured to update automatically. If you are not configured to update automatically the update can be applied by selecting the option to update services from the Computers Page.
As always if you have any concerns or questions, or just need help with the update process please reach out to our support team and we will be more than happy to assist you further.
