All Tightrope Media Systems equipment ships with a Windows operating System. Just like any other Windows based computer it will require updates on a regular basis. The machines are configured to automatically download and install updates at 4AM each day. This feature may be turned off by running wuapp.exe or navigating to Control Panel > Windows Update. Windows updates contain important security updates, minor bug fixes for the OS, and .NET updates that are required for newer versions of Tightrope Media Systems software.
