SEM client 1.2.x installed on Windows 10
In our internal validations with a pre-release version of Windows 10 20H1 update. It has been observed that the system with existing clients of SEM 1.2.x goes in repair mode after applying the latest Windows 20H1 Updates.
To come out of this situation, the systems with SEM client will have to be manually recovered by following a step-by-step procedure.
SEM Updates to support Windows 10 20H1
To avoid the above-described situation, as a proactive step Seqrite will release an important update before the general availability of Windows 20H1 update, which will make the existing Windows 10 SEM clients and server compatible with the Windows 20H1.
The Administrators need to apply the required SEM updates to existing SEM clients installed on Windows 10, once available. This SEM update to support Windows 10 20H1 would be seamless and will not require to decrypt/encrypt the data on existing SEM clients.

Alternate Precautionary Step
Due to some reason, if the Administrators are unable to apply the latest SEM update, made available before the general availability of Windows 20H1 update, Seqrite recommends the Administrators to temporarily disable the Windows updates as a precautionary step to avoid the system going into repair mode.
The Administrators must apply the latest SEM updates for both, client and server, followed by enabling the Windows update to move to Windows 10 20H1.
Both the steps are mandatory!
