Alert: Windows 10 Anniversary Update Changing Host IDs

Support Portal  »  Announcements  »  Viewing Article

Hello everyone, we wanted to warn you that the latest major update to Windows 10, the "Anniversary Update", has begun rolling out this week (8/8/16). When this update is installed, your Niagara installation's Host IDs will likely be changed.

To update your licenses to the new Host ID, visit, open a ticket for the licensing department, and give them your old Host ID along with your new, updated Host ID. You can also contact your local Cochrane Supply branch for assistance.

I have a windows 10 PC host ID change for the second time. First when it upgraded to Windows 10 and again last weekend probably from a windows update. Is this going to happen a lot with windows 10? Is there a way to stop the host ID from changing?
@MathewAngell The second change was likely due to this Anniversary Update. As far as I know, major updates like this are not expected to occur often, as they have moved to a strategy of having more frequent, small updates every week.
