BridgeChecker 2.0 Build 535
- Added RESET_ADAPTERS command-line option - This can be used to reset all adapters during the reinstall or update of the app. This will only work during an update (reinstall) and provided during install will be ignored. Valid values 0 or 1. When provided as 1, adapters will be reset.
- App has been updated to automatically reset adapters whenever a system update is detected.
-- latest configurations for all adapters are stored in the predefined adapter list and also record the current OS version
-- when service starts it compares the last saved OS version with the current OS version and if not the same it automatically restores adapters.
- App has been updated to have two new options as detailed below :
DEBUG_LOGGING_ENABLED - Installation option (supported on the command line as well as on UI). If selected or any value other than 1 meaning Debug logging is disabled by the user. The default value is 1.
ENABLE_ALL_ADAPTERS - Uninstall option (supported on the command line as well as on UI). If selected or value is 1, all non-whitelisted adapters will be enabled with the uninstall of the app. The default value is 1.
Note when uninstalled via Control Panel, app uninstall UI is not shown and since the default value is 1 so adapters will be enabled.
- New Feature: command line options added for updated/reinstall option. See user guide for details.
-New Feature: Install parameter added for whitelisting specific adapters
-Updated "PASSWORD_FILE_PATH" install issue
-Updated a new installer to .exe so that future versions do not have to remove older versions during upgrade.
