1.2.0 - 1.4.0
Long Installation Time
The Windows KB that we install as a part of the installer takes more than 50 minutes to install. As our installer is waiting for the KB to finish its work, our installation gets delayed.
This KB Article can be applied before the installation begins to bypass the issue:
The Windows KB was removed from our installer package in 8.12 (1.6 Suite Installer) and therefore should not be an issue in future releases.
Fingerprints not working on Windows 7
Since this Windows KB above was removed from our installer package, the delay was removed. However, this KB is REQUIRED for fingerprint readers to function in Windows 7. The link above is available to manually download and install this KB on any Windows 7 machines that are intending to utilize fingerprint readers.
Issue was resolved in v1.4.0
