July 8, 2021

Are you getting this message when you try to install Virtual TimeClock on a new Windows computer?

The message above means your computer is running Windows 10 in S mode. This is a version of Windows 10 that only allows apps from the Microsoft Store to be installed. To install Virtual TimeClock, you will need to permanently switch out of S mode. You can do this in three easy steps:

    1. On the computer running Windows 10 in S mode, open Settings > Update & Security > Activation.
    2. Find the Switch to Windows 10 Home or Switch to Windows 10 Pro section, then select Go to the Store link.
    3. On the page that appears in the Microsoft Store (Switch out of S mode or a similar page), select the Get button. After you confirm this action, you will be able to install Virtual TimeClock.
