KB2607560 – This update fixes the following issue

  • Only 4 installed languages are selectable through Control Panel instead of 5

In addition, there are some new features available for POSReady 7, namely the Enhanced Write Filter Management Tool and the  File-based Write Filter Management Tool:

Enhanced Write Filter Management Tool

  • This out–of-band feature provides an application to monitor and configure the “Enhanced Write Filter (EWF)”. By default the application will start on system start and will register a notification area icon. The settings, however, allow suppressing the automatic starting. The tool can be started with a command line parameter to open either the overview dialog or (for users with administrative privileges) the configuration dialog. If the tool is started with a command line parameter, the tool will exit as soon as the respective dialog is closed.
  • If the tool has registered a tray icon, hovering over the icon will show a tooltip containing the protected volumes. If a command is pending for a volume, it will be shown as well. Left-clicking on the icon or selecting “Status…” from its context menu opens the overview dialog with more detailed information about the file based write filter configuration. Users with administrative privileges or credentials can open the configuration dialog by selecting “Configure…” from the icons context menu.

File-based Write Filter Management Tool

  • This out–of-band feature provides an application to monitor and configure the “File-based Write Filter (FBWF)”. By default the application will start on system start and will register a notification area icon. The settings, however, allow suppressing the automatic starting. The tool can be started with a command line parameter to open either the overview dialog or (for users with administrative privileges) the configuration dialog. If the tool is started with a command line parameter, the tool will exit as soon as the respective dialog is closed.
  • If the tool has registered a tray icon, hovering over the icon will show a tooltip containing the protected volumes. If a command is pending for a volume, it will be shown as well. Left-clicking on the icon or selecting “Status…” from its context menu opens the overview dialog with more detailed information about the file based write filter configuration. Users with administrative privileges or credentials can open the configuration dialog by selecting “Configure…” from the icons context menu.
