Fixes & Enhancements

1. Updated the text displayed in the Network Connectivity test dialog box upon Connectivity test failure. The new text explains that TCP/IP Information must be present, and a DHCP, DNS, or WINS server must exist on the network to provide a response to the tester. 2. Updated the PROSet MSI installer with NMS version This version, along with it's modified merge module, install NMS with a startup mode of Manual, rather than Automatic. This improves boot time by deferring the startup of NMS to the first time PROSet II is run after a reboot.
