Updated our Cobal 10's to v8.0. One of the desks show this message and reverts to 7... What to do?
That looks like you've clicked the button labeled "Upgrade" to upgrade the console's output count rather than selected the installer from the Software Update drop-down list followed by clicking the "Install" button.
Can you try installing version 8 again using the drop-down and install button?
