Release notes for previous releases
Setup will upgrade your existing installation and preserve your settings (version 2.7.0 and later only) and registration information. You don't need to uninstall your current installation of UltraMon first.
Please note that if you're using Windows 10, you'll need version 1607 or later of the operating system. To check which version you have, go to Start menu > Settings > System > About.
Windows Vista users: double-clicking the setup file won't work, to install you'll need to open a command prompt and run the following command:
msiexec /i <setupfile>
for example: msiexec /i "C:\UltraMon_3.4.1_en_x64.msi"
When upgrading from version 2.6 or earlier, settings and display profiles, shortcuts and wallpapers will not be preserved. If you need to preserve settings and files, you'll need to upgrade to 2.7.1 first, then to version 3.
Please note that 3.4.1 requires a version 3 license, version 2 registration codes won't work. If you're unsure what version your license/registration code is, login to your account to review your orders and access your registration information. Version 3 registration codes are backwards-compatible and will work fine with earlier releases of UltraMon.
System administrators: if you're upgrading UltraMon installations which use version 2 registration codes, you'll need to specify the new version 3 registration code when deploying 3.4.1, otherwise all upgraded installations will run in trial mode. You can do this by setting the USERNAME and PIDKEY properties, for example on the command line for msiexec:
msiexec /i <setupfile> USERNAME="<registeredTo>" PIDKEY=<regCode>
This release adds support for version 1809 of Windows 10, specifically the window buttons now work, Chrome no longer crashes at launch and when hiding the start button on secondary taskbars the search and task view button get properly hidden as well.
• UltraMon crashes on Windows 10 if themeing has been disabled via Handle.exe
• Windows Vista: when running an application as administrator you'll get an error 'A referral was returned from the server' from UltraMonUiAcc.exe. As a workaround run regedit.exe, then go to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Realtime Soft\UltraMon\<version> and set the UseUiAcc value to zero. This way you won't get an error, but UltraMon still won't be able to add window buttons etc to applications running as administrator. This issue occurs because Windows Vista doesn't support the new SHA256 code signing certificate used by UltraMon
• Runtime error in Adobe Acrobat when moving maximized window if Acrobat was launched from CCH ProSystem Engagement. As a workaround, go to UltraMon Options > Compatibility, then configure settings for Adobe Acrobat and check the 'use alternative method to move maximized window' option
• Docking hints from Xceed Docking Windows library don't work if UltraMon window buttons are enabled for the application
