SetupBuilder 8.1 Build 4391 (April 17, 2014)

IMPROVEMENT: Add built-in support for SoftVelocity Clarion 9.1.

FIX : [SB#3-12161] Installer: Possible "Local Port" attribute issue
in the Add Firewall Exception feature on UAC-aware Windows

FIX : [SB#4-01111] IDE: #pragma MEDIATYPE was not working as expected
for media type #5 (Custom for UAC-aware systems). The compiler
did not set the internal "Custom for UAC-aware systems" bit in
the executable. As a result, the setup.exe did not look for the
.BIN image.

FIX : [SB#4-02161] Installer: Possible COM Interop Register /codebase
switch issue in the "Register File Operation..." script

FIX : [SB#4-03011] Installer: Possible issue in the "Get Atomic Clock
Time..." script function.

FIX : [SB#4-03041] Installer: Possible issue in the "Handle String
Operation (Encode/Decode Base64)..." script functions.

FIX : [SB#4-03111] IDE: The compiler did not detect unreferenced
variables in the "Wait Dialog..." script function.

FIX : [SB#4-02171] IDE: The "Communications Protocol" group in the
"Add Application to the Windows Exception List" Firewall
Exceptions operation was disabled.

FIX : IDE: Minor fixes in the "Create Service Properties".

CHANGE : [SB#3-11091] IDE: The pre-defined SB_GENERATORFLAG symbol
$DISABLE_WEBINSTALL$ is always set to 1 if the "Enable Web
Install" Web Deployment option is not marked.

CHANGE : [SB#4-01201] IDE: Set "Media Size (MB)" limit to 2000MB to
avoid an incomplete file generation.

CHANGE : [SB#3-11111] Installer: The internal register OCX file function
always calls the OleInitialize API.

CHANGE : [SB#3-11051] IDE: The compiler was overprotective and checked
all specified variables in the "Handle Text File Operation..."
script function. Variable checks for the "Advanced" field is
only performed for the "Find Line", "Insert Line" and "Replace
Line" operations now.

CHANGE : [SB#4-02201] Add "Any" Communications Protocol option to the
Firewall Exceptions function.

CHANGE : [SB#3-11211] Add "Automatic (Delayed Start)" Start Service
option to the Create Service Properties.

CHANGE : [SB#3-11121] IDE: Modifications in the "Static Dependency Scan"
Task Automation feature to work around a possible Windows 8.x

CHANGE : IDE: Minor modifications in the "Dynamic Dependency Scan"
feature to work around a possible Windows 8.x issue.

CHANGE : IDE: Add more "api-ms-win-core-?", "api-ms-win-eventing-?",
"api-ms-win-security-?", "api-ms-win-service-core-?" and
"api-ms-win-shell-shellcom-?" DLLs to SBSCAN.INI.

CHANGE : Installer: Minor "event logging mode" modifications.

CHANGE : IDE: A 'Fatal CopyFile Error [9]' error aborts the compilation
process to avoid a possible GPF.

CHANGE : IDE: Minor compiler modifications to try to avoid a possible
GPF after a failed setup code-signing process.

CHANGE : IDE: Add experimental support for the Extended Validity (EV)
code-signing certificate type. A "macro" (EVCS = Extended
Validation Code Signing) can be used in the "PFX File" entry

For example: EVCS://subject name

where subject name is the text listed under the "Issued to"
field in Personal/Certificates. The compiler will then select
the EV code-signing certificate.

CHANGE : Updated online help (CHM and PDF).
