Automatic UNINSTALL of Erdas Imagine Software - Windows 10?

Hi there,


We are currently operating Erdas Imagine 2014 and 2016 on Windows 10.


From the 19th December we experienced mutliple updates on Windows, which led to sporadic uninstallations of our ERDAS Imagine software from our systems. We reinstalled the software on the 3rd of January, and on the 4th January it was uninstalled and completely removed once again.


Anybody experiencing similar problems with ERDAS and Windows?

Hi Jens,


I have not heard of this problem occurring specifically with ERDAS IMAGINE, but I have read about the Windows 10 updates removing certain programs for what it considers to be compatibility reasons.


The problem is explained in this article: Windows 10 May Delete Your Programs Without Asking


In your case, was it only ERDAS IMAGINE that was automatically uninstalled during the Windows 10 updates or were other programs also removed? Do you know exactly which Windows 10 update(s) caused the software to be uninstalled?
