Technical Information

Update on Windows 10

Ever since the release of Windows 10, owners of SCUBAPRO's Galileo, Smart and Aladin/XP (round series) dive computers who upgraded to Windows 10 haven't been able to download their dives or adjust their dive computer settings using their PCs and either SmartTRAK or LogTRAK.

(Please refer to the following Microsoft link:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3150989 to find more information on the sequence for enabling IrDA networking on a Windows 10 PC.)

Notes:

• To enable IrDA networking, the PC must be updated to Windows 10, Version 1511.

• If the PC runs under an earlier version, please use Microsoft Windows Updates to download and install the latest Windows 10 updates.

• Microsoft's procedure has to be run under an Admin user profile.

According to Microsoft, the user has to "open an elevated Command Prompt window" first. To do so:

1.   Click on Start menu.

2.   From the menu, click on "Run." It is located on the upper right part of the menu screen.

3.   A pop-up window will open. In the "Open" field, type cmd and click the "OK" button.

4.  The "elevated Command Prompt window" opens.

5.  From that point, you just have to follow the procedure.
