Don't use % on variables on type double, it only works on the integer types (char, short, int, long, long long).

Does the manufactures code really have to have type double? Normally codes like that are integers, or rather a string of digits representable as an integer.

Since you don't tell us which line your problme occurred on, I'll assume its line 28, where you take 10,000 modulo ManfCode.

I'd ask why lines 28 and 31 read differently. I infer that you're pulling a particular digit out of the code, or is there some other magic going on? If not, I think line 28 should be updated to read

  1. assist1= (long)ManfCode % 10000;
Please, next time you post remember to use code tags and note the exact line where the error occurred. We're not mind readers.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
