Upgraded to 9.4.3.0 - nice interface. I did notice that Favorites don't show up like they used to. In previous versions (9.2.x), when on the All Entries tab, I could distinguish easily which entries were included in my favorites and which weren't. Now, when on the All Entries screen, I can't really tell which ones are favorites and which aren't.

Also, thinking about new RDM versions and updates (this thread(, a recommendation for update settings. It doesn't seem that RDM includes BETA update checks unless you also enable the option to allow RDM to check for updates on startup. It would be nice to disassociate these two options. Because of an update check error that I've had issues with, I've disabled the update check on startup on my work PC. I would have missed this BETA (9.4.3.0) update if it wasn't for RDM installed (and working properly) on my home PC, which does include BETA updates when it does the update checks. It would be helpful to be able to include BETA checks when clicking on Help - Check Version (even if checking for updates at startup is not enabled).


As always - great app,
Thanks

Hi,
Could you send me a print of the difference you get for the favorite? I don't see any change in the UI?

For the check update, I have entered a feature request for that.

Thanks David. I don't want to hijack this thread so I've posted the Favorites images in another thread here.

Hi,

Thank you for the new beta series!

For me, 1 thing is definately not an improvement.

When I used to click a folder (customer), I got an overview of all the session with name and IP address.

Now, I can only see Name and Description.

Furthermore, since all text items (open session, open externally, etc), have been replaced by pictures, I find it harder to find the right option (I can see way less text). Also, the old text list was nice and compact, making it easy to navigate. Now the pictures are spread all the way to the right of my screen.

Just my 2 cents....

Maybe I could change settings, but I'm unable to find.. I'm on 9.4.6.0 now.


Kind regards,
Raymond Jansen

To customize the columns you cannot click, but you need to click and hold the mouse. Cliking produces the Sessions context menu ;-)

Highlight für "Modern UI Style" doesn't always produce the best choice of colors ;-) See screenshot of lightgreen on white (the old one keeps the black fonts).

Otherwise : Good Job!"

Version 9.4.7.0 (Dutch language).

When I open a session, no console/no admin.

RDM asks for Username / domain / password. The field for Username (Dutch = Gebruikersnaam) overlaps with the box where you need to type in the username. The first 3 characters are not visible.

See screenshot.


Kind regards,
Ray

Not running the latest beta version. Have to roll back each time.

What hit beta last? On the site you can download this version only in the beta section. It is not fatal, but the feeling that the site is located on the GPRS modem, according to the download speed.

Clock6 yrs

Hi,
I have tested the download and it's quick. For the issue, it seems that your data source configuration does not contains the password. Could you try to enable the ask for password or enter it in File->Data Sources

When I save the account settings appear the same error message. At next logon settings are not saved. Only helps rollback to the previous stable version. And my data source contains a password, and he entered and is stored in the account configuration.

Could you try to create a new data source with the beta and see if you can add a session into it.

And I also tried. No result.

Clock6 yrs

Could you try to install the beta in another folder like C:\RDM95

David Hervieux

Yes, this solves the problem, thanks.

I suspect that some dll might be in conflict

9.4.7

All entries for server have a VPN set for "session" and manual connect. When I export all of them out to import into another computer, all the VPN settings get reset or erased.
