New Features In Containers

</ExcludeFeaturesByProcess>

Fixes in Containers

New Features In Auto Packager

  • Auto Packager asks user to accept the Cloudhouse EULA before  downloading and installing updates, the switch /acceptEula can be used  on the command line.
  • Auto Packager controls in main window are now disabled when the 'Files not captured dialogue' is presented to the user.

Fixes in Auto Packager

  • Auto Packager uses escape characters correctly when creating File Type Associations.
  • User will be asked to accept EULA if they have copied Auto Packager to another machine e.g. via USB or network.

Advisory

Cloudhouse  recommend using the Auto Packager on x86 operating systems only,  re-directions will not be created correctly for applications that  contain a mix of x64 and x86 components. Containers will be created  successfully for applications that contain only x64 components, but successful packaging on this platform requires detailed knowledge of the application prior to packaging.
