Version 1.83 of the Auto FE Updater is now available for download
The Auto FE Updater website has been had pages added with testimonials, feature list and many minor updates. A big addition was a detailed step by step tutorial on getting started setting up your first configuration file.
The latest update to the utility makes the process of initial user setup much easier. You will now be able to click on a button in the utility and paste a link into an email for a new user of your application. You will need to create a shortcut on the server for this option using the ServerShortCutPath entry.
Other updates include
- using code signing so the "Open File - Security Warning: The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?" message no longer appears.
- a warning message appears if running the utility on a local hard drive. This can be ignored by using a IgnoreLocalExecuteMsg=yes line in the AutoFEUpdarer INI file
- if required you can turn the read only attribute of copied files off by using the Set Read Only attribute = off. This means you can make the FE folder on the server read only for users.
- Added a Licensed To text box to all the forms. See the voluntary licensing page for more details.
Many thanks to Clif McIrvin for all his work in figuring out an excellent solution in getting new users going on the Access app.
