    Exclamation AUP Informant 1.6 Released

    Here it is, fresh from the compiler, just like Mom used to bake! It's been a long time since a release and 2.0 is still a way off so I thought I'd take the time to backport a few new features and fix some long-standing bugs.



    First off, what's new?

    • You'll just love that native MSI package!
    • The 2.0 interface has been backported to 1.6
    • You can finally set the program to appear every logon
    • You can use an URL as the policy location instead of just a local path


    What's got better?

    • Much faster startup and lower memory usage
    • Email reports now show the user's domain
    • Email reports send in a new thread, preventing the UI from locking up
    • A few minor performance tweaks


    What's fixed?

    • Sometimes the main window would appear the incorrect size
    • Global variables were being ignored in paths
    • Hotkeys (enter for accept, esc for decline) were being ignored
    • Incorrect fallback behaviour for when the staff policy file was unavailable
    • Program would appear if the user's home path was disconnected

    Wow that looks fantastic! I have been meaning to sort out my AUP for ages.

    One question, I can't find any installation instructions for the CC3 package, could you point me in their direction?

    Thanks

    There's a readme file inside the download. If you need any help with editing the .config file, drop me a PM.

    Are there any example of the htm policy files anywhere?

    I had to download the conversion pack to open the docx readme.

    Looks great though

    Attached is our student policy, which is what we use with the software here.

    Ah yes it was a docx file. We don't have 2007 in the school so it didn't stand out.

    Thanks again.

    When I get home I'll repackage them with a .doc instead.

    That student aup looks very pretty and I'm not sure what I would use to duplicate it.

    I was getting a 'Operation cancelled due to effect placed on this computer' windows error message. I used the CC3 package and duplicated my previous settings from an earlier version of the AUP informant.

    I used 'teststudent' which is setup as a 'pupil' user in the CC3 MMC.

    Okay, I haven't heard of that message before. Any chance you could get me a screenshot?

    Was the previous package removed first and did you copy the old .config file across or did you modify the new one? Can you send me the config file as well, passwords removed if you like.

    Yep. Usually an RM network will allow programs in the Program Files folder to run without any extra setup. If this doesn't work for you, try a "gpudpate /force" and reboot on the workstation.

    If that doesn't work you can add a file exception from the management console in Configuration Settings -> Software Restrictions Settings. However, you shouldn't need to do this normally.
