This article provides instructions to configure and register Windows 7, 10, and Windows 10 IoT based devices with Appspace App.

What’s in this article: 

Prerequisites

  • The device must meet the manufacturer’s minimum hardware and technical specifications. Please refer to Supported Devices & Operating Systems.
    Important
    For Windows 7, ensure that the latest Windows Update is installed before installing the App.
    For Windows 10, ensure the minimum version for Windows 10 is 1903, while Windows 10 IoT is 1809.
    Warning
    If the same Windows image is being deployed to multiple devices, it is best to install Appspace App after the image has been deployed. Please contact Support if you encounter any issues that causes conflicts, or registration issues.
  • An active Appspace account, with sufficient User IDs for user mode, or Device IDs for device mode.
  • An active Internet connection.
  • A USB keyboard for activation.
  • It is recommended that the device clock is set to automatically retrieve time from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server, with the correct time zone, in order for it to sync correctly with the Appspace server.
    Note
    • Appspace cloud servers by default retrieve time from a NTP server. If an Appspace on-premises server is used, ensure the server time is automatically retrieved by a NTP server.
    • Appspace has updated the timezone configurations, which now includes timezones other than GMT. This enables users with daylight savings to adjust the time accordingly.
