NOTE: This is an update to AlphaPro 11.5.3.x and should be installed in the same directory as previous AlphaPro 11.5.3.x installations. It is not necessary to uninstall previous versions first.
NOTE: The Sentinel dongle driver must be installed separately. It is located in the \SentinelSystemDriver folder inside your AlphaPro installation directory.
NOTE: Since AlphaPro version 11.5.x.x there is no support for serial communication which is needed to configure AMC9. For AMC9 and mixed networks AlphaPro 11.2.x.x must be used!


Errors Corrected

MTN-33: IP Station: Volume setting from AlphaPro fails

The volume on IP stations would not be updated immediately when changing the setting from AlphaPro. Corrected.

MTN-36: Import of database with 'not local administration' exchanges

There was some problems with opening some databases when conversion from older format was needed. Solved by improving the reindexing of the Exchange table when AlphaPro opens a database/network.

Conversion of AlphaPro v9/10 databases

There was some issues with converting AlphaPro 9/10 databases into v11.5.3.x format. This cause AlphaPro to exit with an error message, or that GetAll failed with an error message. Corrected.

Using enlarged fonts in Windows

If Windows is set up to use enlarged fonts (Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Display), Wacs would not be adjusting correctly to this. This is changed so that wacs always use it's correct font size.


Enhancements

Italian Autoload

This version includes an Italian Autoload database

Errors Corrected

Long database paths: AlphaPro was sensitive to long database paths, for example when accessing databases on a network drive. Corrected.

Error message at Send Evconfig: During SendAll/Chg an error message saying 'Index was outside the bounds of the array' occurred in some cases if there was programmed events with Scheduler as Owner Type. This is corrected.

Error message at Send Dirnos: During SendAll/Chg an error message saying 'The input string has the wrong format' occurred when handling Directory numbers. This was caused by some numbers having an empty ID field. Wacs now replaces empty ID fields with '0'.

Import of old databases: During import and conversion of AlphaPro 11.2.x.x databases, Recorder Usernames and IP Addressses was lost. Corrected.

Functional Changes

Import from .csv: Added more options to the Import from .csv function. The new format is:
<directory number>;<id number>;<groups>;<group access level>;<cos>;<display text>;<udp groups>;<exp parameter>;<always private>;<mail in idle>;<global>;<ccoip>
where
<groups> can now contain a list of groups separated by comma: ..;1,2,30;..
<udp groups> can contain a list of udp groups separated by comma: ..;1,8;..
<always private>, <mail in idle>, <global> and <ccoip> is either 0 or 1 for respectively unchecked and checked

If the <global> field is 1, the <directory number> will be added as a feature 83 number with the <id number> as node number. If the <global> field is 0 (or empty), the <directory number> will be added as a feature 9 number with the <id number> as physical number. If a global number is added, only <directory number>, <id number> and <display text> are used. All other fields are ignored.

If the <ccoip> field is 1, the station with physical number = <id number> will be set to be an CCoIP station. If the field is 0 (or empty) the station will keep the CCoIP setting it had before the import process.

Known Bugs

Navigation Keys doesn't work on Dual Display stations

If the Station Type is changed to Dual Display, the Navigation keys don't work after SendAll/Chg. AlphaPro update the DAK programming correctly, but the changes don't take effect on the Station.

Workaround:

  • Option 1: After making the changes to Station Types, close AlphaPro and start it up again before SendAll/Chg
  • Option 2: After making the changes to Station Types, temporarilty select another Network before SendAll/Chg
  • Option 3: After making the changes to Station Types, open the DAK window for the Station and click OK.

NOTE: This bug is also present in older versions of AlphaPro, and it will also be an issue with CRM3&4 Stations
