NeoBook 5.6.4 Update Released

Postby Neosoft Support » Sat May 23, 2009 2:28 pm

NeoSoft Corp. has released NeoBook version 5.6.4.

The version 5.6.4 upgrade patch can be downloaded from the following website:

http://www.neosoftware.com/patch.html

Follow the instructions to download and apply the update patch.

NOTE: If you registered NeoBook 5 before February 1st 2008 then you will need to purchase a new registration code in order to use version 5.6 or higher. If you purchased NeoBook 5 after February 1st 2008, then this upgrade is free. Registered users of NeoBook 5.0 through 5.5.4 can purchase a new registration code for $25.

This update contains the following:

Enhancements

-Added an option to Book Properties > Version Info to allow customization of the Vista/Windows 7 manifest included in compiled publications. Most NeoBook authors can safely ignore this feature and simply use the default "As Invoker" setting. Versions of Windows prior to Vista will ignore the manifest. (See the “Book Properties > Global” topic in the help file for more information about this feature.)

-Compiled publications now attempt to detect changes to the default printer made by the Windows Control Panel or other applications. Previously, a change in the default printer would not be recognized until the publication was restarted. (Note to Programmers: Your app should broadcast a WM_SETTINGCHANGE message if you alter the default printer.)

Fixes

-The Archive/Backup command now works correctly. A bizarre glitch in the software we use to “protect” NeoBook from hackers unexpectedly caused this feature to stop working in v5.6.3. Only the English version was affected.

-Corrected two compatibility issues related to Internet Explorer 8. The first caused an error message to appear when closing compiled publications containing embedded HTML content. The second prevented NeoBook from test running ActiveX (PKG) publications (formally known as web browser plug-ins) when IE8 was installed.

-Corrected a problem that prevented NeoBook from running on some Windows 95/98 systems. This was caused by a compatibility issue with the software used to “protect” NeoBook from hackers. This affected NeoBook only and not compiled publications.

-Corrected a problem that prevented Web Browser objects from redrawing properly when snapped to a container.

-The help file’s search feature now works correctly after being inadvertently disabled in the previous update.

Other

-The compiler option “Web Browser Plug-In“ was changed to “ActiveX Control (PKG)” which more accurately reflects the type of application created. Hopefully, this will reduce confusion (and tech support questions) about this feature.

Salut,

Our dealer in France (TTP France) is working on translating some text required for the update and help file. Hopefully, the French 5.6.4 update will be available the first half of June. I apologize for the delay.

Ronny,

We haven't had any other reports of similar problems, so I'm not sure exactly what to recommend. Other customers have been able to install the update under Vista with no problems. It sounds like the Windows utility RegSvr32 can't find the NB5ActiveX.ocx file or can't update the registry. Unfortunately, Microsoft's error messages are notoriously unhelpful.

Here are some suggestions:

1. First make sure there are no other applications running - especially Internet Explorer.

2. Try downloading and installing a fresh copy of version 5.6.4.

3. Run the installation as an Administrator. (Right click on the nbw.exe and select "Run as Administrator".)

4. Uninstall your old version of NeoBook before installing the update.

5. Temporarily turn off any anti-virus scanners or anti-spyware apps that interfere with writing to the registry.

Thanks for add such option :)

BTW: is there a type of newsletter or similar for know updates?
If not, it could be a good idea for inform to neobook users about new versions.
