Scense 7.5 Service Release Build 1155 available starting March 15th 2011
Mar 11, 2011
New: Simple pre-caching. The way the Scense local cache works might cause unexpected loss of service for offline laptop users. The new pre-caching algorithms will effectively solve this by simulating the use of all shortcuts and file type associations right after installing an application. This way all shortcuts and file type associations will immediately be available offline. This feature was first introduced in interim release build 1146.
New: Support for SWV 6.1 SP6 MP1 (and up) Because of changes in the SWV API Scense could no longer support SWV versions 6.1 SP4 and up. As of this service release Scense is able to support SWV 6.1 SP6 MP1 and up. The full list with supported Service packs and maintenace packs of SWV 6.1 will be available soon.
New: Support for redirected APPDATA folder. Some customers apply redirection of profile folders. The ‘Application Data’ folder might be included. The Scense local cache database is stored in this location and will be subject to redirection as well. For laptops this may have adverse effects because the local cache will not be available off-line. To overcome this issue some customers have implemented offline folder synchronization on the APPDATA folder to fix this side effect. The offline folder synchronization will often fail because the local cache database will be in use most of the time. To offer the administrator a way of avoiding offline folder sync issues a switch was implemented that forces the Scense Client to release the local cache database whenever it’s safe to do so. Since this might have a negative effect on performance this functionality is switched off by default. This registry key switches the releasing of the local cache on or off: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREScense DWORD value: ReleaseElcAfterSubSession] Non existent or 0 (= off) (1 = on)
Fix: Incorrect identification of Windows 2003 Terminal Server. A Windows 2003 Terminal Server was mistaken for Windows XP Terminal Server. This was caused by the similarity in versioning for Windows 2003 Server (=Windows 5.2) and Windows XP 64-bit Edition (=Windows 5.2)
Fix: Shortcut export problems. Some applications could not be exported because of their shortcut binary content.
Fix: Scense Update Manager crashes. In some situations the Scense Update Manager crashed on launching of the Update Deployment window. This was caused by the way the active directory was queried. A 60% performance gain was a side effect to the fix.
Fix: SWV 6.1 exported Windows 7 layers can’t be imported. SWV 6.1 Layers exported on Windows 7 could not be imported by Scense. This was caused by the SWV admin tool’s non-standard way of creating a zip-file (a VSA file is actually a zip-file). By using a more tolerant algorithm we are now able to import these files.
