Version 11.70.12.2

  • Overlap Taskbar: Even when setting "Overlap taskbar" in the Customize Taskbar, the application was not doing it. It is fixed now

  • More: The Logoff was not working for rebranded versions of TSplus.

Version 11.70.11.08
  • Taskbar buttons and Notification area (Systray).
  • In this new release this AdminTool feature has been completely changed in order to:
    • It provide a better and less confusing GUI for the administrators
    • To warrant the expected behavior
  • WinXShell alternative to Windows Shell on W10/W2016
    This new release includes the proper replacement of Windows Shell. It includes the use of a customized version of Classic Shell to display the Start button feature. Please note that for system with a license for 3, 5 or 10 users, This Shell alternative will never apply. It is only for more "demanding" servers where saving logon resources is crutial that we do propose the use of WinXshell. One fresh setup, the default setting is to use WinXShell. On Update Release, if nothing has been set before, the default setting is not to use it.
  • When the administrator was selected the CUST PDF printer, the GhostScript was install again at reboot. With this new release, it will not happening anymore.
  • There was an error when applying the Update Release and when a WinXshell user was connected. This is fixed now.

  • The HTML5 / Web Server has been enhanced and its latest release is included

And of course this 1.70 release includes all enhancements and fixes of the former 11.60 release

Version 11.70.11.13

This version fixes a compatibility issue with Microsoft latest updates on Windows 10 RTM 32 and 64 bits and Windows 10 1607 32 bits.

Version 11.60.10.28

This is a corrective release.

During the past week several issues created troubles to customers updating their former releases of TSplus.
This Update is addressing these issues and hopefully will avoid them to continue.

  • When updating, sometime, the changed HTTP/HTTPS port was turn back to the port 80/443. This is fixed now.
  • When updating and changing the RDP port number, the new port number was blocked by the Windows firewall. This is fixed now.
  • On W10/2016, to support RemoteApp over 16 concurrent users we did disabled the capability to reconnect a disconnected session. Now this will be limited only for RemoteApp session when more than 14 concurrent session are already running.
  • On W10/2016, the new WinXshell was published for users (not admin accounts) right from the first connection.
    The WinXshell is still not completled as we want it to be and customers claims that it is not what they wish. To avoid problem, but to keep the benefit of being able to start more than 16 "full Desktop" on these systems we now do display it only after 12 open sessions.
    Also, for not English systems, this release of WinXshell is displaying the text using the system language. On this specific important matter, we expect to complete a good solution in November.
  • On the AdminTool Session Preference tab, the capability to enable/disable the WinXshell alternative to the Windows Shell was not available. It is fixed now.
  • In the Advanced security tab, requesting to block RDP client connection was also blocking HTML5. It is fixed now

Important comment: If, after downloading and applying this Update Release, a customer having change the RDP port (3389) have a problem to connect
using, for example a RemoteApp client, the solution is simple: Change the HTTP port --> apply, restore the HTTP port --> apply.
Doing so the proper rule on the Windows firewall will be added and the problem will be fixed.

    Please note that soon (probably end of October) we will add the capability to translate the texts of WinXsheel and to hide features for the users.
  • Added: The applications starts "Maximized" when using the Web Portal. This is useful specially when using the TSplus App to immediately see the expected application maximized. However, the adminitrator can use the Application tile to overpass this rule and to display the application as "Normal"
  • Fixed: The Upload file feature in HTML5 when using the Explorer option instead of the TSplus GUI
  • The start of the Web Server was not always processed art reboot. It is fixed now.

  • On W10/W2016, the Windows Shell is replaced by our new WinXshell for all system where the TSplus license is more than 10 users. Please note that this is not the final version of WinXshell. We do expect enhancements before the end of October 2018.
  • On W10/W2016, the GPO tile of the AdminTool has been enhanced to be able to enable/disable the new "per user" services which are useless on the "server" environment.
  • If the system is not installed on the C: drive, Ghostscript setup was blocked. To avoid this issue in such case, we just ask the administrator to process his GS installation manually.
  • The Universal Printer was not working when different version of Ghostscript was installed. It is fixed now at reboot. However, if a printing problem subsist after the reboot, the re-install of the Ghostscript driver with the AdminTool Printer Management tile will fix it.
  • The Universal Printer was not working due to a lack of rights to write on ../www folder. It is fixed now.
  • When using RemoteApp on client, in the user systray, possibly, multiple icons was displayed. Also, the systray icon was displayed even when not application has been assigned to the user. It is fixed now. Please note the to enable this fix, the user must exit the existing systray and the install the newest Setup-RemoteAppClient.exe
