    Release note for 2.0.1 BETA


    IMPORTANT: When updating to BlackTrax v2.0.1 from 1.x, you must first uninstall BlackTrax v1.x before installing v2.0.1. This can be done with the v1.x installer; once run it will prompt you to remove BlackTrax. Follow the steps to remove BlackTrax, then copy the new installer into the Installation Management folder and upgrade as per normal. As BlackTrax will be installing new, please ensure the installer installs for all users on the machine.

    As this is a BETA, please be mindful of possible bugs and unexpected behavior. Please report all bugs to support@blacktrax.ca.

    When upgrading from v1.x, all application settings will be re-set to defaults – if you changed any default settings please verify each application to ensure your system is still configured correctly. Please see releases notes below for more information.

    There is a new licensing security system used to authorize hardware devices with the BTServer. Please be sure to download the required license files and follow the instructions found here. Note that for this release, your system will only warn you if your license is invalid, but will not prevent access to any features or functionally.
