What operating system is used on the MCI - touchscreens

Ian -

AUGUST 2017 TO Present

All new MCI's for ROTOR, PIXL and MSM's are supplied with a Windows 10 operating system.

AUGUST 2016 TO August 2017

We have now moved to Windows 10 on all new ROTOR MCI's. MSM's are currently running on Windows 7 while we continue to test all features with Windows 10.

JUNE 2015 TO AUGUST 2016

For ROTORs and MSM's supplied after June 2015 the operating system will be Windows 7. If your ROTOR, or MSM, has been upgraded to a touchscreen MCI after June 2015 you will also have Windows 7 installed.


For ROTOR and MSM's supplied before June 2015 it is likely that your MCI is loaded with Windows Embedded Standard 2009. (Not XP Embedded). Windows Embedded Standard 2009 is an updated version of XPe. See below for the update from Wikipedia on support for this version of Windows.
