SimplyPats on Windows 10 S

First up, SimplyPats Version 7 will quite happily install and run on Devices running what would be considered standard versions of Microsoft Windows 10, such as Home or Pro.

Not to be confused with "Standard" Versions of Windows 10, note the inclusion of the letter "S" in the title, devices (Laptops and Tablets) running the Microsoft 10 S Operating System are only able to download and install Software Applications via the Windows Store, this means that Applications from outside the Store will not install if downloaded from a Developers Website.

As SimplyPats is not available on the Microsoft Store, it will not install on a Device running Microsoft Windows 10 S.

Some Devices running Windows 10 S do have the option to upgrade the Operating System to a version of Windows 10 which is able to install software from any location, however there may be a cost involved in this.

Our advice, if you are looking for a cheap device to install and run SimplyPats would be to look for a device running a standard version of Windows 10, such as Windows 10 Home or Pro.

What is Windows 10 S

According to various well known review sites, rumours suggest that Microsoft released Windows 10 S to complete with Google Chromebooks in the Education sector. If that is the case, locking out the ability to install App or Programs from outside of the Microsoft Store make perfect sense from a security standpoint.
