Windows 10 and Transit NXT

Upgrading to Windows 10 and Transit NXT

Windows 10 and Transit NXT

Using Transit NXT and thinking of upgrading to Windows 10? Here’s what to do…

Upgrade to Windows 10, keep Transit NXT

When you upgrade your computer to Windows 10, please consider the following:

  • keep personal files and apps (selected by default)
  • keep personal files only
  • do nothing

During the upgrade process, Windows OS will display a window prompting you to choose what you want to keep.

It is absolutely necessary that you select “Keep personal files and apps” – already selected by default.

Otherwise Windows will remove your Transit NXT installation (and its activation and all other programs) from your computer, prior to installation.

Upgrade auf MS Windows 10

Beachten Sie Folgendes, wenn Sie ein Upgrade Ihres Computers auf Windows 10 durchführen:

Während des Upgrade-Prozesses, zeigt Windows ggf. ein Fenster an, in dem Sie auswählen sollen, was Sie beibehalten möchten.

  • Persönliche Dateien und Apps beibehalten (standardmäßig ausgewählt)
  • Nur persönliche Dateien beibehalten
  • Nichts

Es ist unbedingt notwendig, dass Sie die Einstellung “Persönliche Dateien und Apps beibehalten” ausgewählt lassen!

Anderenfalls entfernt Windows Ihre Transit NXT-Installation und Aktivierung (und alle anderen Programme) von Ihrem Computer, bevor Windows 10 installiert wird.
