Issues with the SETUP.INI configuration file of the IM client software

New issue has been discovered by us on using the setup.ini configuration file to setup common and predefined settings both in Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer client products. The issue is related to keeping existing common options on upgrading the to a new version.

Current functionality requires that the setup.ini must be used with the same or overwritten values on upgrade via MSI setup package. Otherwise all the common settings in the messenger applied to all users on the computer will be deleted and will be set as allowed to change (inverted from the "grayed out" state).

Currently we think on this issue and will provide a way on how to keep existing common settings in the software even a new setup.ini file is not used on an upgrade. At the same time, of course, we need to implement a way on how to remove currently installed common options. We will keep posted our users and customers on changes we can make, stay updated!

New versions of the instant messenger add the functionality of forwarding messages and fix security issues

Today new versions of Bopup Messenger 5.5.8 and Bopup Observer 4.3.22 have been released.

This use adds a new function called "Forward message". Now Bopup Messenger offers forwarding of incoming messages to other recipients and employees. It is easy to perform this: click the "Forward message" on the toolbar on the "Today's Messages" screen or select the "Message/Forward..." item from the main menu or use Ctrl+D hotkey.

The new versions of the instant messaging clients also fix issues that are related to security and confidentiality area. Now if users use the messenger under the same Windows logon ID on the same computer and enter to the IM network with Private login/password then the IM application stores all the user's settings and message history files separately.
