What's new in UpdateGenie
[Fixed] UpdateGenie: Mac OSX - On some computers UpdateGenie failed to launch,
causing an unexpected error. This issue has now been resolved.
[Fixed] UpdateGenie: Mac OSX - UpdateGenie now finds FileMaker successfully. Due
to differences between users configuration, FileMaker on some computers could not be
located automatically. This issue has been resolved.
[Fixed] UpdateGenie: Runtimes - At times UpdateGenie would appear to hang during
the update process because it would wait for the runtime application to be launched the
second time while the first launch (to read the version number) was still closing.
UpdateGenie now waits 10 seconds after the first launch of the runtime application
before it continues onto the second launch. Long delay periods for the closing splash
screen may continue to affect the update process, so it's best to keep the delay under 5
[Changed] UpdateGenie: Windows - FileMaker 7 Runtime solutions had trouble
updating because the runtime dll files were not being released by the operating system,
treating them as opened even though FileMaker 7 was closed.
[Changed] UpdateGenie: Runtimes - Previously UpdateGenie would automatically
locate the runtime executable file via the file extensions, which cased problems when the
live solution folder was renamed or moved. Runtime users are now required to manually
locate the solution folder.
[New] UpdateGenerator: New field called "Executable File Name" has been
introduced. Runtime update packages now require the executable file name to be
specified. Previously, UpdateGenie would automatically locate the runtime executable
file via the file extensions, which caused problems when the live solution folder was
renamed or moved. By specifying the name of the executable file, UpdateGenie can
launch the runtime application consistently.
[New] UpdateGenerator: The field "Executable File Name" is validated when exiting
UpdateGenerator ensuring a blank value cannot be used when building runtime update
[New] UpdateGenerator: The Version File and Primary File extension is validated
when exiting UpdateGenerator ensuring that .fp5 or .fp7 is not used when building
runtime update packages,
