Meet new versions of the IM clients

Today, 23rd June 2010, new versions of Bopup Messenger 5.4.12 and Bopup Observer 4.3.11 have been released. These versions bring a new functionality to copy selected text from the Message History into clipboard. This is a very useful function because previous versions of the IM clients do not copy selected text even the text has been selected.

The new version of Bopup Messenger also fixes error with a very small size of text font in the sending dialog box. That font might occasionally appear even user's settings have a proper size.

German installation package of Bopup Messenger has been also updated. Now it includes correct Away and Quick Answer messages in German.

Download new versions from Download Center and update your existing software.

Setup package of the communication server has been improved

We have just updated the setup package of Bopup Communication Server that ships with a built-in MSDE 2000 (Microsoft SQL Desktop Engine) software. Since the MSDE 2000 is not supported by Windows Vista and later versions then it cannot be installed on these operational systems. And to avoid unsupported issues the Setup Wizard of the IM server shows a special dialog box if a user chooses to install MSDE 2000 under Windows Vista/2008/7.


That page of the wizard contains a button that opens the Step-by-Step Guide to Install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition as a Host Database Server for Bopup Communication Server if a user have no existing Microsoft SQL Server on his environment to host the program database.
