We are pleased to announce DESlock+ v4.9.4 is now available for download.

This is a maintenance release which includes:

- Improvement: Performing a Windows 10 feature update using an OEM version of Windows 10 removes the configuration settings added by DESlock which enable seamless updates. Added self-healing to ensure the configuration settings persist.  
 
- Hotfix: The fast startup/hibernate fix added in 4.9.2 could cause a blue screen (BSOD) related to power during startup on some machines.

- Hotfix: FDE metadata was not being protected by the fix introduced in v4.9.0 when using a TPM, this could result in the metadata becoming corrupted. This release corrects the metadata on affected systems on installation during upgrade.

Fix: Fixed a problem introduced in version 4.9.2 which could cause automatic Windows 10 Feature Updates to fail on a Full Disk Encrypted system.

We are pleased to announce DESlock+ v4.9.2 is now available for download.

This release includes new features, improvements and fixes:

  • (UEFI only) New: Maintenance mode. Allows controlled bypass of pre-boot authentication to allow a system to reboot without a user being present. This is useful when performing Windows updates or other system maintenance. This feature is disabled by default, for more information and details on how to enable see: http://support.deslock.com/KB471
  • (UEFI only) Fix: On Windows 10 Creators (1703) or earlier, files on the UEFI System Partition (ESP) could become corrupted if data is written to the ESP when booting with fast startup or resuming from hibernate. Microsoft have fixed this issue in Windows Fall Creators (1709), however this update provides a fix for users of previous versions. For more information see : http://support.deslock.com/KB472
  • Fix: Recovery of a Full Disk Encryption login password may not persist if recovery is performed when the system is resumed from hibernate or during fast startup.
