Netkiosk Standard system requirements.

Netkiosk Standard requires Microsoft .NET Frame work 4.6.1

If not installed already Netkiosk will try to install this automatically.
Windows 7, 8 and 10 have .NET Framework 4.6.1 built-in. So no need to install.
But you might still want to update it for the latest version. You download it direct from the Microsoft website.

Download Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 (Direct download link to Microsoft website).

If you see that NET Framework 4.6.1 is already installed you can simply close the Window.
NET Framework 4.6.1 is automatically included with Windows 10.
If you see that the program is already installed you can simply close the Window.

Disabling Ctrl+Alt+Del options.

If you want to stop users accessing Ctrl+Alt+Del you can look at our free helper program Netkiosk Advanced Configuration.
You’ll find it under “Free kiosk software” on the top menu bar. ((Ctrl+Alt+Del).
Please note that Ctrl+Alt+Del is already disabled on Windows touch screen devices.
So in that case there is nothing else you need to do.

Netkiosk updates

Netkiosk imperi updates.

Chromium is constantly being updated with new features and security options. We’ll update Netkiosk imperi to maintain maximum security and ease of use. We’ll check if any Chromium updates will benefit our custom chromium version and, of course, our users. Only then will we decide if we’ll implement these updates in Netkiosk imperi. As our chromium version is a secure kiosk version we do not push automatic chromium updates.

Any core chromium updates we provide need to be manually installed by admin. Any updates are only provided twice a year for minimal interruption. Any updates can be directly downloaded via our website. We can provide you with an update at any time.

Netkiosk Standard updates.

Although IE is still available even in Windows 10 Microsoft no longer update IE. In fact, Microsoft has implemented Chromium in their latest Edge browser. We still update our own custom IE version to maintain maximum security. As our IE powered version is a secure kiosk version we do not push automatic updates.

Any core Netkiosk Standard updates we provide need to be manually installed by admin. Any updates are only provided twice a year for minimal interruption. Any updates can be directly downloaded via our website. We can provide you with an update at any time.
