Adminsoft Recent Version History

Contents of this Page

This page allows you to look back over the changes we have done in recent months, to see if there are any new features which you could (or should) be using, to help your operation run better.

For a quick understanding of automated downloading and installing of the latest version, see: Software Updates

Recent updates:

Here is a list of recent releases to our software. (We did not release any updates to the normal stream for three years from August 2016, because we were doing major re-engineering of our software, to overcome a serious low-level issue caused by Windows 10. We were finally able to roll this out to our normal users in August 2019.)

Updating to the latest version of the software:

The initial install of our software needs to be done by one of our support staff in a remote support session.  For both your sake ours we want to ensure that completely new installs are done correctly.

After that our software will automatically check for updates once per day (when the first person with "Administrator" or "Software Updates" security privileges signs into the software, and will offer to install these if any are found.  (After that, it won't check again for the rest of the day.)   In reality we try to release a new version only once per month (usually somewhere in the quieter period between 15th and 25th).  It is possible to set up Windows Scheduler to automatically check for and install updates overnight (at 5am say).

At any stage, a user with "Software Updates" or full "Administrator" security privileges is able to "Check for Software Updates" from the "Help" menu (and "Tools > Administrator > Software Updates" menu for administrators).   The "hot updates" facility in our software allows this to be done while other users are still using the software.  (All users will understandably need to exit out and come back in, in order to run the new version after it has been installed.)

Very occasionally a software update may require minor changes to the structure of one or more data tables.  If this is the case, the new version will pause at any point where it needs exclusive access to the data tables, and requests that you to ask all other users to exit out of the software until the updates have been completed.
