Bug Fixes

Bug Fixes Description
steadyPRINT VPD: vName – in rare cases, print job is not printed Due to a double access to a configuration file, it could happen in rare cases that a print job was not processes at the client. This problem has been fixed.
steadyPRINT Agent: Subsequently adjusted background color no longer taken over in integrated Agent A subsequently adjusted background color in the integrated Agent is no longer taken over. This problem has been fixed.
steadyPRINT Agent: No display of main window when opening the Agent on the second attempt The main window was not displayed when opening the Agent on the second attempt. This problem has been fixed.

steadyPRINT Agent: Client name detection for XenDesktop not always correct The client name detection for XenDesktop is not always correct. This problem has been fixed.
steadyPRINT Agent: Own Agent profile is not determined at the first start The administrator has created various Agent profiles and stored the respective users in the Center. If now an Agent is added that has never been connected to the database before (user with empty AppData), he/she will use the default profile and not the stored profile at the first start. This problem has been fixed.
steadyPRINT Center: Reading print servers with more than 4000 printers is partly not possible Importing a print server with more than 4000 printers is partly not possible. When calling the interface function EnumPrinters of the Microsoft Spooler-API, it runs into a deadlock and does not return. Even the function in .NET Framework provided by Microsoft is not able to run this process correctly. A fallback within steadyPRINT is now reading the printers via the Windows registration in order to guarantee the import of the print server including its printers.
