New HanDBase 4.1.5 Development Version Released

Postby DavidDevaneyJr » Tue Sep 01, 2009 3:00 pm

We have released new Development versions of the following products and they are now available for download:

HanDBase Plus Add-on for iPhone and iPod touch
HanDBase Professional Add-on for iPhone and iPod touch
HanDBase Enterprise Add-on for iPhone and iPod touch

These builds add additional compatibility for Windows Vista and non-Admin users. These builds change the location that the settings files are stored in to conform to Vista. The installer should find your previous HanDBase Desktop settings file and copy it to the new location. Please let us know if that is not working. If you previously had to run any of the software components As Administrator to get something to work that should no longer be necessary. If you have User Account Control enabled you should be prompted to let the installer run but none of the included components should prompt you if UAC is enabled or if you are a Standard User. If you are getting prompted please let us know so we can look into that.

There was an additional fix made to the HanDBase Desktop that prevented Printing a Report if UAC was enabled. This was also fixed.

Answers to common questions:

What is a development version?
A development version is like a public beta version. When we make significant changes to a program that is not part of a major update (eg, 4.0, 5.0), we like to make sure that no new problems surfaced in the fixes we made. While we did test this application in house and with testers, it's best to keep the current release version as the current release, and only those who are needing some of the above changes can take the initiative to download the development version. Should you run into any issues, you can always come back to the Registered User's page and download the current release version to get back to where you were before. As with any update, I'd suggest backing up all your files before performing the update.

How do I get the development version?
Log into the Registered users page:
Username: Your email address
Password: what password you were given at purchase (not your license key). If you don't have this, click the lost password option on the above page and we'll email it to you.

Next to each product you'll see the Download button- that is NOT the one you want as it's the latest release version. Instead, select the option under the words: Latest Development Version: 4.1.5 build D4, or D3 for Standard, to download. That will get you the installer for the development version!

Why was the bug xxx I reported not fixed in this version?
This version addresses most all bugs we were able to verify and duplicate in house. If we can't duplicate the bug we can't fix it. If your submission was not verified, chances are we emailed you back to say we needed more help duplicating the issue on our end. If we didn't, there is a chance we missed it or it fell through the crack. If so, very sorry about that. Feel free to comment in this topic if this is the case, and I can comment on that particular issue or follow up with you.

Is this going to be the release version?
If we find no other issues we will likely just release the slightly fixed version in a few weeks. If there are any significant issues, we'll likely release another development version before the release version.

Hope this version works well for you!
