Note: This update will only affect computers with Lockdown Browser Lab Version 1 installed. If you have Lockdown Browser installed in your own computer this should not affect you.
After June 30th 2016 if a computer has Lockdown Browser Lab Version 1 installed an error message will be received. The message will display the following:
Outdated version of LockDown Browser This version of LockDown Browser is no longer current and must be updated. If this is a public computer, the update must be performed by the manager of the computers.
Why the Update?
In August 2015 Respondus released a Chromium-based version of Lockdown Browser for Windows which is more stable and reliable than version 1.
