nope here is my config. and here is the resultant embedded browser window thats opened. I have the display set to external and have even changed default browser to chrome but makes no difference. I change the display to "embedded", the then it op-en in a tabbed internal browser form. When I then go back into properties, the "External" display option is no longer available.

Ok its a bug to do with the secure note tab. When the note/secure note option is ticked, the display type "external" disappears from the display dropdown option. So any record that has a secure note related to it will not open the url in an external browser if the display is set to "external"

OK I've installed RDM Free to replace PVM (though still have PMV installed). Both reading same dataset from Devolution online drive.

When in DRM on any record that has a URL, and has display set to "undocked-primary monitor". When click "Navigate URL" it opens in a detached Dev form and not the default browser

If I try with a record that has display set to "embedded" then it opens my default browser. So I can only assume the "Navidate URL" button has the switch wrong for opening embedded or with browser!

Been a few months since I have logged into this forum. There used to be a forum named "password vault manager" for the password vault manager app. Now all I can find is "password Server". Has the apps name changed???

10 mths so whats happened to "password vault manager"

Nah, its all screwed up!

My template for login (web) is already set to external as default.

If I create a new login (web) the icon for this record in the tree show the globe, and the globe button on the right hand panel works correctly launching my external browser.

If I then add a secure note tab to this record, the icon in the tree view changes to the note icon, and the globe button on right hand side panel now open an embedded browser tab and there is no way to change back to external browser

I have an extg record that has a URL to my local NAS. When I click on the globe icon, then launches the url in my default browser.

I now make a duplicate of this record, and now when I click on the globe icon, it open the url in an embedded tab and there is no way to force it to open in an external browser.

How can these two "identical" record behave differently, and how do I configure PVM to ALWAYS open URL's in an external browser

So does full encryption with a master key effect performance for saving and editing records?

Pretty sure I have no set a master key in the past.Its all working ok now and I've clicked on the "no Master Key" for now, but what I want to know is..should I set a master key or not.

PVM is pretty slow now to save each time a single record is updated, so the last thing I want is for it to be slower, which I expect would happen if there is another layer of encryption going on in the back end?

Where is the documentation that explains what level of encryption/protection I am getting with/without a master key?

ok now I understand.

Interesting. If I edit the folder name, it takes 2-3 minutes to refresh after saving the change which is way too long as I have 30-40 folders to edit.

If I change any other fields (say enter "a" in login field which is irrelevant for a folder object) then the save time is 2 seconds

I assume the diff is a physical change to the folder name forces an update of that folder name in all child records, whereas the other property changejust updates the folder object.

thanks

Not sure if I initially set a master key. Have no notes in my password record so assume not. No documentation in the help on what a master key is and whether I need it or not.

Help tells me who to set one, but not what its for!

No thats not working! If I edit a record in one of the records under a missing folders, it then shows up that folder in the lookup list when in that record, but not if in any records in other folders.


The folder dropdown, and ... both need to be dynamic and show virtual folders

Not sure why there is dropdown and ... whats the difference???

Ok just upgraded my client to V10 and now am continually getting prompted to enter/re-enter a datasource master key but its not accepting my single password.

This is in addition to my single password to open the app.

What has changed?????

ok changing both the pvm client, and chrome browser to 19460 that fixes the problem.

If I set both manually to 19444, the Chrome extension does not make the connection

If I set PVM client to default, and manually set Chrome to 19444 the Chrome extension does not make the connection

If I set PVM client to default, and manually set Chrome to 19460 that fixes the problem

So what is thte "default" port number? in my PVM, when I click on the default link in file-options-web browser, its says 19444 is the default port

PVM file-option-browser extension set to "use default", which is set to 19444

chrome web login extension is also set to "use default port (19444).

will now try changing both to 19460

two issues here. First thing every morning when I open a browser and click on the * on toolbar it comes up with "no connection" If I close and re-open PMV then refresh it usually fixes the toobar connection.

however the in-field interface with the login extension is not working at all. I just get the circle no matter what I try to refresh

The browser app is still not working right.

The option to pick the credentials from the * within the credential fields now always hangs with circle going round. I now have to go up to button on toolbar and then lick from list on there to populate credentials

The secure notes are still causing me problems.

Some new records provide for three types: plain, RTF and HTML, whereas others only provide for 2 options: HTMP and Plain:

Why has the RTF missing on some new records?

PVM1

PVM2

Aha.. my current setting:

Screenshot+++12+09+2018+%2c+1+35+37+p.m.

have now ticked "allow multiple data entry types" and the various types now show up again!.

I had a previous issue with this about 2 or 3 releases when I was having extremely slow save times due to saving embedded images in records. The next release dropped the ability to have embedded images and thats when the multiple type options disappeared so I assumed it was no longer available. Since then I have been using an extg record that has the multiple types as my template for new records.

Now back to the way it used to be.

NB what is the last tick box for? "allow note in information"


Thanks for the great support.

god posting an image is an nightmare! I must have wasted 30 minutes when I put my post up trying to get an image into my post. Looks like its still not working. Should not be this hard!

here are the three options from photobucket to post an image. Lets see if any of them work!

Please bring back rich text notes as another tab on the standard templates like they used to have.

The main reason I moved form Roboforms to PMV was for the rich text notes so I could record additional info against my login credentials.

A few releases ago you dropped this feature so now we only have a plain text note field under the "more" menu on the left hand side.

Previously we could tick the "note/securenote" option below the menu on hte lft hand side to create another tab alongside the login details where we could record additional notes in RTF so could bold and underline to create some structure

OK embedding screenshots was really nice, but killed performance as PVM saves back to server on every edit so I can live without images, but really want more control of fonts etc.

I hope it has also fixed a secondary issue that url's to exe dont work now either!

I have a few client sites that use VMware Horizon remote app.

So I have setup a PMV record ( login(account) type with the following url:

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Horizon View Client\vmware-view.exe

This used to work fine, running the exe when I click on the Navigate URL button. The display mode would have been set to external.

Now all my records have defaulted back to display mode embedded, and if I set the display mode undocked (default) it just tries opening the exe in an external browser window.

I've just tested a new record using the login (web) rather than (account) and this works as expected. I assume you have med some changes to the login (account) type and it no longer supports external display type?

I have noticed that "sometimes" when I edit an extg PVM record, the setting for the display change back to "embedded". This does not always happen, but often enough to really annoy me now!
