    ·    Updated for Adagio Cloud.

    ·    Adagio MultiCurrency now logs user activity within the module, including login and menu choices. Application logs may be viewed with GridView, Crystal Reports or from Adagio Console.

    ·    The Euro currency symbol is now supported.

    ·    Improved validation when entering rates.

    ·    Installs a new Adagio Data Source (ADS) that prevents resource locking problems at large Adagio sites running 9.2 versions and improves application performance at these sites.

    NOTE: All third-party applications from Adagio Developer Partners must use the new ADS. You must check with your Adagio consultant or the developer to confirm their application is using ADS 1.12. 66.3503 or higher. Failure to ascertain this risks corrupting data if the application is writing to the Adagio data files concurrently with Adagio modules.

    Problems Fixed

    ·    The Exchange Rates report printed the rate and spread 100 times too small.

    ·    The Workstation install displayed a message in some cases saying it had to download packages to complete the install when in fact that was not required.

    ·    Compatible with and required by version 9.2A and higher releases of Adagio. Downward compatible with earlier versions.

    ·    Compatible with Adagio xConsole.

    ·    Uses the current version of the Crystal Reports runtime engine to view and print reports, replacing the Crystal Reports 8.5 Print Engine (CRPE32.dll). Reports have been converted for Crystal Reports 2013 and can be modified with Crystal Reports 2011 or 2013. Custom reports created with Crystal Reports 2011 or 2013 can be added to the Reports menu by placing them in \Softrak\MultiCurrency\CustomReports.

    ·    The report viewer remembers the window size, position and zoom level. Print/Preview options, including Preview Zoom Factor and Preview Window State (Full screen / Partial screen) were removed from Workstation Options.

    ·    Installs the AdagioPDF printer driver. All reports and printouts from Adagio can be printed to the AdagioPDF printer to create a PDF document in the data folder.

    ·    Added User Preferences under the File menu. It allows you to set certain options by user that were previously global, including options previously found under File | Options, Reports | Report Options. You can set the color, add an image, and add text to the main screen of the program. Includes new options 'On Start-up', 'Alphabetically sorted field list' and 'Exclude Ranges'.

    ·    You can now start other Adagio modules from buttons on the toolbar. Buttons show the icon for the module. This option is enabled in User Preferences on the General tab. The buttons are selectable and movable in User Preferences and on the toolbar itself using drag and drop.

    ·    Added smart finder to Currency Codes and Rate Type fields on edit screens.

    ·    Grids and finders now show the lookup values instead of the raw data values for typed fields. For example Rate Operation shows: Multiply or Divide instead of M or D; and Date Matching shows Higher, Lower or Exact instead of H, L or E.

    ·    The Open Data screen can be sized horizontally to allow you to see the full data path. You can now use Alt-B to open the browse and Alt-F (for Favorites) to open the previously opened list. In previous versions you had to use the mouse to select the folder buttons.

    ·    Alt-X now selects the Excel Direct button on grids where it is available. In previous versions you had to use the mouse to select Excel Direct.

    ·    Adagio MultiCurrency 9.2A now installs to the \Softrak\MultiCurrency folder and the program name is MultiCurrency.exe. Previous versions were installed in \Softrak\MCWin and had program name MCWin.exe. The install still creates the old folder because Adagio programs with a release date prior to 2014 still check there to determine if Adagio MultiCurrency is installed and licensed before enabling their multi-currency functionality.

    Problems Fixed

    ·    Display of the warning message “That Foreign currency doesn't exist.” was not displayed consistently in the Edit Exchange Rates function

    ·    Backup to vitalEsafe did not work in version 8.1B.

    ·    The Edit User function could not be accessed even if it was enabled in a Security Group.

    ·    The Printer name, if long, was displayed on multiple lines instead of just one line on Report dialogs.

    ·    The copy number did not show in the window title when multiple copies of the program were open, for example “Adagio MultiCurrency (2)”.

    • Compatible with Windows® 7.

    • The Adagio Open Data Dialog has been significantly improved. The Previously Opened database list is now saved by Adagio User rather than for all users. The first time an existing user or a new user logs into Adagio MultiCurrency 8.1B they will be asked “Would you like your historical company access list set up?” Answer yes to have all entries from the Previously Opened list from your prior use of MultiCurrency copied for your use. The Open Data screen and Previously Opened database list now show the date the database was last opened by the user. You may also elect to have Adagio save your Adagio User Id and Password and default them when logging into Adagio. The saved information is based on your Windows authenticated user name. This option may be turned off by editing x:/softrak/system/ADS.INI and adding the lines:

    • The date control has been updated to improve the speed of data entry. You can enter just the 1 or 2-character day in any date field without having to enter the month or year. The month and year are automatically populated with the initial values from the field. For example, if the date is 1/23/2011, typing “22” and tab changes the date to 1/22/2011. You can also enter just 4 characters for the day and month (zeros are required) and the year will be populated. This change speeds up data entry in most cases where you need to enter a date different than the session date or last remembered date.

    • The Data Integrity Check (DIC) function can be set to automatically do a backup of the database if there are no errors reported by setting the ‘Auto-backup after DIC’ option in the Company Profile. The backup details and backup filename are shown in the DIC log. A backup is now done automatically when you do a Rebuild on a database with errors. The DIC will offer to create a backup of a database prior to applying any “fix” as a result of the “Rebuild” option being selected to repair damaged data.

    • Copy Currency Codes and Rate Types functions place you directly in the edit for the newly created record.

    • The Edit Rates screen is now sizeable. This allows more rate lines and more fields to be shown in the grid.

    • Added an Excel Direct button to grids. Use the 'Enable SF Export' option in Edit User to enable or disable the Excel Direct button.

    • Excel Direct from finders and grids can be configured to export an ASCII CSV file (instead of sending data direct to Excel) and start an application that automatically opens the file. This allows export when Excel is not installed and provides support for other spreadsheets such as Note that unlike Excel Direct there is no formatting with CSV. To enable this functionality, entries must be made manually in the file x:/softrak/system/ssi2xl.ini. Refer to the Readme help file for details.

    • The Help | About dialog now has a 'System Info' tab showing the version and path to various DLLs used by the program.

    • When Adagio GridView 9.0A or higher is opened from the Adagio menu, System Currency will be displayed as the first line on the Select Module screen so you do not need to scroll down to find it.

    • The copy number now shows in the window title when more than one instance of Adagio MultiCurrency is open on the same machine.

    • Automatically copies help files (*.chm) to the local drive so that Service Packs do not require a workstation install just to update the readme help file.

    • The Help Menu has been modified to allow you to launch the Adagio System Status utility (chksys.exe) and print the Adagio Lanpak registration form.

    Install Changes

    • This version moves toward our goal of a more Windows 7 friendly environment for installation. If you are installing to a mapped network drive that is normally accessible, but you cannot see it during the install when attempting to select a drive or folder, you can now install by browsing to the correct folder using the Universal Naming Convention (UNC), for example \\myserver\accounting\. This avoids having to adjust the User Account Control settings, which requires you to restart your computer and temporarily grant Administrative privileges to the user if they are not an administrator.

    • This version simplifies installation by removing any consideration of the location of the Report Tables Drive (RTD) by the install and program in virtually all cases. Therefore the install no longer prompts for the RTD.

    • The install writes to the master install log file "AdagioMasterInstall.log" in the \softrak\system folder. An entry is written to this log when any full, upgrade or SP for any Adagio module (with a release date of March 2011 or later) is installed. It shows the version installed and the version being replaced, the name of the Windows user who did the install and the rights for that user. An entry is also written to the log when an updated version of the Adagio Data Source (ADS) is installed, showing the version installed and the version being replaced. This log can be used to quickly determine the install history for all Adagio programs.

    • When you select the 'Backup Files' option during an install, the replaced files are now saved in a subfolder named YYYYMMDD in the BACKUP folder, under the programs destination folder (rather than the BACKUP folder itself, where extensions need to be changed to .001, .002, etc. when there are multiple versions of the same file).

    • The install includes an option allowing you to skip creating entries under Windows Start for cases where you will be manually creating an icon for the user to start Adagio and do not want them starting from Windows Start. During the install, uncheck the option 'Start Menu programs'. This avoids having to delete or change the Windows Start entry that would have been created.

    • The install no longer checks the Opportunistic Locking setting (Oplocks) on the workstation.

    • The Opportunistic Locking setting (Oplocks) on the workstation is no longer checked when the program is started.

    • The System Status function in the Help menu (chksys.exe) no longer prompts you to disable Oplocks. It displays the current Oplocks setting and allows you to change it. The 'Check R/W Status', 'Check Specific Folder' function now supports UNC browse, whereas before you would have had to turn UAC off to use it.

    • SetServerForAdagio and SetReportsTablesDrive utilities have been updated. The latter should virtually never be needed at an Adagio site once any Adagio module dated March 2011 or later has been installed.

  • Compatible with Windows® VistaT.

  • Compatible with Adagio Lankpaks 8.1A. Lanpaks must be 8.1A for all Adagio 8.1A modules.

  • Smart Finder can now search on multiple criteria.

  • Contents of disabled fields are shown in blue rather than dimmed gray. This may be easier to read on some monitors at higher resolutions.

  • Adagio download files, installs, workstation installs, all workstation install (\softrak\allwkst\allwkst.exe), and the Adagio Check System utility (chksys.exe) are now signed with a digital certificate using VeriSign to allow you to verify the Publisher is Softrak Systems Inc.

  • Vista does not support the old style Windows Help (.HLP files). All .HLP files were converted to compiled HTML help (.CHM files), which are supported by Vista.

  • For security reasons Windows does not permit .CHM help files to be run from a network drive. This is true in XP as well as Vista. The .CHM files must be run from a local drive. Adagio 8.1A installs all .CHM help files to your local hard drive and loads them from there. The workstation install also copies .CHM files to the local drive.

  • When switching window/task in Vista with Alt-Tab or the new Flip 3D (Windows-Tab) an image of the current Adagio screen is shown rather than just the icon of the Adagio program.

  • You can now backup Adagio data in zip form to WebSafe, a web-based storage facility. WebSafe is a service which allows you to store your important information in a secure location that you can access from anywhere in the world. See for details.

  • Currency symbols other than $ are now supported in reports.

  • The formatting of dates and text sent to Excel from Smart Finder results has been improved.

  • GridView has been added to the Adagio menu.
