TaskCentre v4.6 Updates

New Features & Sub-Releases

Since September last year when Orbis Software released TaskCentre v4.6 which, apart from a significant number of fixes, added Cluster support for SQL Server Triggers, open (query-able) Event Log, and full support for Windows 2012, SQL Server 2012 and Windows 8 for the client, a number of sub-releases have been made and I’d like to bring you up to date on what we have.

TaskCentre Version 4.6 - Hotfixes A & B

4.6 Hotfixes A and B can be applied to TaskCentre Version 4.6. It contains:

  • An enhancement to the Recordset to XML tool enabling the use of up to ten record-sets

  • An increase in the character limit within the freehand mode for the Database Query tools

  • Various stability improvements within the TaskCentre product

  • Support for Windows 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1

It also contains resolutions to a number of issues, details of which are included in the Release Notes.

We are recommending that customers who have installed 4.6 apply Hotfix B. Note that Hotfixes are cummulative; there is no need to install Hotfix A prior to installing Hotfix B.

A Note About Using the Run Crystal Reports Tool and the Crystal Runtime Engine

Please note that under certain new TaskCentre licenses, a separate Crystal Report Runtime license may be required. In Addition, any existing customer that needs to move TaskCentre from one server to another may need to obtain a new CR Runtime. This change is due to changes that SAP has made to its Master OEM License with Orbis Software. For any questions, please let us know.
