In the 9/13/2016 Microsoft Windows update more Java versions are blocked. The only version of Java allowed after this update is Java 8u111. This version is working with the Medi system. If you are getting the message that Microsoft Windows is blocking your Java, you can use the new version. www.java.com . Microsoft will block all Java 7 versions that are currently available to the public. Microsoft will block Java 8 versions before 8u101. Expect newer versions of Java available soon. We anticipate no issues with any future Java 8 versions. If you do not have Java 8u101 or higher and can’t login you will have to change Java.
Special Note: Java 9 release is expected in early 2017. Do not use the Beta or early release of Java 9.

Microsoft has introduced Windows 10 and a new web browser called Microsoft Edge. Windows 10 has worked with Medi. The Edge browser will not work with Medi. If you upgrade to Windows 10 you will have to use the IE 11 mode. To find instructions for using the IE11 mode in Windows use a Google search. The Windows 10 and IE 11 combination has worked in our testing.
Note: Windows Edge, Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox web browsers are not supported.
