IM Server improves a restore of SQL backups and printing Message History

New version 4.1.4 of Bopup Communication Server has been released on January 27, 2013. It is a not mandatory update but it fixes and improves some useful features of the software.

What's new:

Added new option in the SQL Database Maintenance dialog to restore database backups created on another server

The SQL Database Maintenance dialog of the Management Console adds a new check box that says the console that a SQL database backup (that is intended for restore) was created on another SQL Server and/or another instance of the communication server. It is very important because in that case the backup will be restored with WITH REPLACE option.

Added UAC verification to control status of the IM service

Now the Management Console checks token of administrator account (UAC) under which it is running in Windows Vista and later. If there is no necessary rights to control the IM service from the Welcome page then appropriate message is shown and starting/stopping options for the service are unavailable. In order to control the service the Management Console must be launched with "Run as administrator" option selected from context menu in Windows.

Improved showing and printing Message History containing long messages

New version of Bopup Communication Server fixes issues with displaying and printing long text messages in Message History. We removed scrollbars in the edit boxes that contain the message text and now each conversation is shown and moved to a printing device in whole.

The server install is going back from MSI to EXE package

Today we released a new version of Bopup Communication Server that brings small improvements and changes. Version 4.0.8 is also distributed via EXE setup package files. We decided to move installation files from MSI extension to executable setups because it is easier to launch an EXE file with "Run as administrator" option on Windows Vista and later systems. Unfortunately Windows Explorer does not show that option in context menu if you right-click on a MSI file.

Since we received a lot of reports regarding installation issues of Bopup Communication Server on latest versions of Windows including 64-bit versions then we improved the setup and added additional verification of user's privileges (UAC). If the setup is running without required rights (full administrative privileges) then it shows appropriate error page.

It is strongly required to launch the setup package of the IM server with administrator privileges in order to properly install and register all modules and services in the system. It is easy to do that: right-click on the setup file and select "Run as administrator" option from context menu.
