There are multiple reasons why software updates are released and why you should keep them current. This applies equally to Windows, Visual-Eyes and any other software you might run within your clinic.
- Bugs/Security Exploits – Older software versions may have bugs or known security holes that could be exploited by hackers, which have since been patched.
- New Features/Improvements – Most companies like to keep their software relevant by adding new features, as well as other modifications to make the program more efficient.
- Old Versions Become Obsolete – After time, software may become inoperable due to compatibility issues with newer versions of Windows or because the infrastructure they rely on no longer supports them.
- Difficult to Support – If you require assistance with out of date software, it may be challenging to find someone who is knowledgeable to help. Many software vendors simply stop providing support for older versions.
