FAQ for update to the latest version of Corinth
13. August 2019
Do you use Corinth at your school and now want to upgrade? Here are the answers to your questions. A complete summary of the Frequently asked questions can be found in our FAQ section.
Why is it not enough to update an already installed version of Corinth?
Unfortunately, this is not technically possible. Because of the fact that the new version of the application runs on the current version of Windows 10, it also requires installation of a new version of the application. We don't come with anything new - we just keep up with the development of the operating system you are most likely already using at your school. Only the updated Windows 10 architecture allows us to enable mass deployment of the app. Moreover, installation of the application can be much easier and faster with the mass deployment solution.
How can I get the latest version of the Corinth application and how can I make its mass deployment?
You can find all the necessary information in our Installation guide. Only make sure you have the 64-bit version of Windows 10. Any previously purchased license keys remain valid and can be reapplied.
What shall I do if my school have previously purchased and activated Corinth and now wants to update to new version?
No worries. Your license remains valid and you can apply it again. Unfortunately, updating the Corinth app to the new version requires new installation. Just updating the app is not enough in this case, as we’re upgrading to a completely new architecture, allowing us mass deployment and much more.
What are the benefits of the Corinth app for Windows 10 64-bit version compared to 32-bit version?
Why cannot I simply use an .exe file for mass deployment / mass installation of Corinth 3D to various devices and accounts?
The main reason is safety. Data security is our priority and main concern. Using .exe files for mass deployment/mass installation within a school environment could likely present a data safety hazard.
Corinth 3D is a UWP (Universal Windows Platform) application. Unlike standard desktop applications (run through .exe files), UWP applications operate with a strictly defined range of access to system locations while the data of each user stay separated. Such an application can not access and further process data without the user having full control, as can occur with desktop applications. As a result, explicit permission of some potentially dangerous features, performed implicitly by desktop applications, is necessary.
Furthermore, our solution offers a wide range of customization options, allowing for the mass deployment/mass installation to be conducted based on specific preferences and software/hardware setup of a given school subject. Such possibilities could simply not be achieved with an .exe file.
Is there a difference between installing Corinth from Microsoft Store vs. server solution?
Downloading the app from Microsoft Store allows you only accessing the app in one device and one user account. The mass installation is possible also through Microsoft Store for Education / Business, however only under specific system settings. Therefore, we cannot assist in this process.
Mass deployment through a server solution enables school following options:
Mass installation to various devices
Mass installation to various accounts
Sharing app data across various accounts
Mass activation of the license across various accounts or/and devices
Why are there two versions of the Corinth application in Windows Store? What’s the difference?
A new version of the application had to be released to meet the new functionality requirements. All existing features and content shall remain available for each existing user. However, updates will only be available for the new version of the application, supporting the latest version of Windows 10.
It all depends on the version of your operating system. If your device(s) run on 64-bit version of Windows 10, then you’ll find app called Corinth3D in the Microsoft Store listing. This is the updated version of the Corinth app. If you find the app listed as Corinth, you probably use only 32-bit version of Windows 10. That means you have not updated your Windows 10 system and you cannot use the updated version of the Corinth app.
