Patch solves potential windream Client problem

Reorganization of the Network Provider Order after Windows 10 Updates

After Microsoft stopped the dispatch of the last Windows 10 update, we assume that the corrected update will be available at short notice. For this reason, we would like to point out the following curiosity which may occur after a Windows 10 Update and can result in a problem with windream Client computers:

During a Windows 10 update, the network provider order is changed or providers are removed during the update process. The changing of the so-called “Provider Order“ results in the entry for the windream drive no longer standing first in the order, which, in turn, will cause access problems on a windream Client computer. In the “Provider Order“, the windream drive should always be first.

To guarantee this status and to avoid problems on the windream Client after a Windows 10 update, we provide the so-called “Provider Patch“ for our partners and customers which will solve the described problem.

The patch can be downloaded and directly started via the following link: www.windream.com/download/Patches/WM_DriverProviderOrder_Patch_1.exe

Important Note for windream Administrators

Current Windows 10 version no longer installs SMB 1 by default

Due to recent events, we need to point out that the latest version of Windows 10 no longer supports the network protocol ”Server Message Block 1“ –SMB 1 for short – by default. The protocol is, however, required for using the windream Share Drive or the server services in the context of the Share Drive.

As SMB 1 is by default not installed in Windows 10 (Fall Creators Update and Windows Server version 1709 and higher), the network protocol needs to be activated manually.

Under the link https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/4034314/smbv1-is-not-installed-by-default-in-windows, the support database of Microsoft points this fact out. The support pages of Microsoft also provide information on how to activate SMB 1 again, see https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/2696547/how-to-detect-enable-and-disable-smbv1-smbv2-and-smbv3-in-windows-and.
