Windows10 Feature updates – Driver support issues in MAWi ZERO

Relevant to ZERO CLIENTS ONLY – Windows10 May 2019 update (Build 18362) and newer is currently partially supported


Since Microsoft released build 1903 (May 2019 feature update), they have significantly changed their WDDM infrastructure, which required OSBASE drivers to change fundamental components in their driver engine as well.

ZERO CLIENTS currently supports the Windows®10 latest updates (190x & 20xx) in Extended mode (for showing different content on different screens) and Mirror mode (for duplicating content on multiple screens).


Video Wall mode with ZERO CLIENTS is only supported on Windows® 10 releases of up to and including May 2018 (Build 1809). 


We are working hard on adapting the driver to support the latest Windows’® builds, but until further notice, please keep your Windows® on build 1809 if you require to run a video wall.


Please note that MAWi in its Spacewall and Standalone connectivity variants fully supports ALL the Windows 10 updates, up to and including 20H2.


We would strongly recommend disabling automatic Features updates from Microsoft for Windows 10 by installing and running this small tweak:


Please note: This issue is only relevant for ZERO CLIENTS.

For customers who don’t need to use their zero clients in a Video Wall and using the latest build of Windows® 10(190x & 20xx), please use the USB Wall app:

Please follow the instructions below:

1. If the old driver is still installed on your PC, please uninstall the OSBASE iDisplay driver and restart your PC.

2. Install the USB Wall app. Restart is not necessary at this point.

3. Run the USB Wall app and start assigning the screens as Extended desktops for showing different content on each screen or to Mirror groups to duplicate the content to multiple screens.

Download Windows® 10 PRO build 1809 

For the meantime, we are offering a pre-built Windows10 with build 1809 (October 2018 update), that is fully supported by the OSBASE drivers.

This pre-built version is already installed with all the required components for Monitors AnyWhere Connect.

We’ve also added a clean Windows10 with build 1809 in case you prefer going through all the steps and install it manually.

How to install the new ISO file on your computer

First you will need to download and run a free application called Rufus.

Rufus is a free tool that will prepare the USB drive, extract the contents of the ISO file you have, and copy the files contained within it to your USB device, including any files in the ISO needed to make it bootable.

Once downloaded, run it and it will immediatly start running – no installation is required.

Insert the flash drive or other USB device into your computer that you want to mount the ISO file to, assuming it’s not already plugged in.

Burning an ISO image to a USB drive will erase everything on the drive!

Before continuing, check that the USB drive is empty or that you have backed up any files you want to keep.

From the Device drop-down at the top of the Rufus program screen, choose the USB storage device you want to burn the ISO file to.

From the Boot selection drop-down, make sure Disk or ISO image (Please select) is chosen. Click SELECT.

When the Open window appears, locate and then select the ISO image you want to burn to the flash drive. Once selected, click Open.

Click on START to start the mounting process of the ISO file to the USB device you chose.

Click OK to the WARNING: ALL DATA ON DEVICE ‘XYZ’ WILL BE DESTROYED message that appears next.

The total time to do this depends mainly on how large the ISO file is that you’re lookoing to mount.


Once the status at the bottom of the Rufus program window says READY, you can close Rufus and remove the USB drive.

Your USB thumdrive is now ready to install the ISO file on your computer. Plug it to your computer’s USB interface and make sure it’s set to boot from your USB thumbdrive.


For more details on how to setup the boot order:

Once your computer is booted from the USB thumbdrive, Windows10 installation will begin to load.
