On some ION, Si, X & Xi trackers while using Windows 10, it was been reported that pressing Update will lock the tracker up and turn the blue light off on the front of the tracker. Additional communications with the tracker was not possible until turning the tracker off and back on.
This was corrected in September 2018 with a new version of the Trackers Software Developers Kit. That software developers kit is used in CAM2 2018.4 and later and in FARO Utilities 188.8.131.52 and later.
If you are using a 3rd party application that is using an older version of the SDK, it is recommended that you use FARO Utilities or contact the developer of your 3rd party application and inquire about obtaining a newer version of their software that uses an updated version of the tracker SDK.
