MSD: CM Tool Update Available

Courtesy PD TMDE
An update for the maintenance support device (MSD) V4 that protects the device from unauthorized Windows updates when it’s connected to a network is available on CM Tool. You can find CM Tool HERE; you’ll need your CAC for access.

Remember, CM Tool is the only authorized location for Windows downloads for MSDs. If you try to download a Windows update from anywhere else or load a different operating system that wasn’t provided by PD TMDE, cyber security will render the device inoperable.

If that happens, you’ll need to contact the MSD/ICE Help Desk at (877) 564-1137 or email:
