Issue Details

I want to deploy my application using installer and install in the tablet PC but it is using Window S mode system. May I know if NI software can work on the operating system?

Solution

Windows 10 in S mode only works with compatible apps from the Microsoft Store. Most apps in the Microsoft Store work the same for devices whether they're in S mode or not. Note that some developer tools won't be supported on Windows 10 in S mode, and a small number of apps with known compatibility issues will list the issues in the app’s product detail page in the Microsoft Store.

If you still want to download an application that's not in the Microsoft Store or has compatibility issues, you can switch out of S mode, but you won't be able to switch back again.

Additional Information

Windows 10 in S mode is a version of Windows 10 that's streamlined for security and performance, while providing a familiar Windows experience. To increase security, it allows only apps from the Microsoft Store, and requires Microsoft Edge for safe browsing.
