We recently posted an update to TMG Reporter Beta – build 188.8.131.52. Unfortunately it introduced some issues for those that were already using an earlier version of the beta. As soon as we heard this, we pulled the update and we are happy to announce a new version that fixes these issues – 184.108.40.206. Here’s what we did:
In version 220.127.116.11, we renamed the default data location from C:\ProgramData\Fastvue\Dashboard to C:\ProgramData\Fastvue\TMGReporter\2.0. This meant that when you upgraded to 18.104.22.168 it did not know about your existing TMG Sources, Reports, or any of the data you had already imported.
In 22.214.171.124, we have removed the ‘2.0’ from the data location and introduced upgrade logic. The new data location is C:\ProgramData\Fastvue\TMGReporter. When you install 126.96.36.199, it will locate the data location for versions earlier than 188.8.131.52 (including version 1.0 builds) and copy the information into the new data location.
Note: If you are using version 184.108.40.206 (or .8 or .9) your data will not be upgraded. This means you will still have a 2.0 folder in your new data location. You can either delete this folder, or copy the information into your new location. The Fastvue TMG Reporter service will need to be stopped if you decide to copy the data to the new location.
There was an issue with the Licensing page that meant the software could not be registered automatically. If you tried to enter a license key, an error would be displayed saying that communication with the licensing server failed, and the manual registration steps were presented. The manual steps worked fine. 220.127.116.11 fixes this licensing issue.
Some customers reported various interface issues such as some buttons and links not working. We are still looking into these issues, however in some circumstances caching is to blame. If you are seeing interface issues, please restart IIS and clear your browser cache. Close and open your browser and see if the issues are still there. Also see if the behaviour reproduces using a different browser, or from a different computer.
Download the beta
So to get access to all the cool new features we talked about for 18.104.22.168, head to our download page, enter your email address and click the version 2.0 beta option.
If you are upgrading from version 1.0, or from an earlier version of the 2.0 Beta, uninstall your existing Fastvue installations (both the Arbiter and Dashboard). Check that everything in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\<your fastvue virtual directory> has been removed, then install the latest version.
If you haven’t installed Fastvue TMG Reporter yet, watch our getting started video at http://fastvue.co/getting-started. It refers to version 1.0, but the steps are exactly the same for version 2.0.
If you have any issues, please let us know!
