(On Vista the GCScheduler.exe must run with “Run with highest privileges” option checked)

-Prepare Swiftpage mailing dialog does not replace dynamic filter params
-Typing in Table ComboBox (AssignTable dialog) will not select matching table (Combo listbox open)

This was already fixed in 3.0.0.9 but the fix worked only if Auto.Save option was ON.

GeniusConnect 4.0.0.2SP1


New Features:

Hidden feature:
Ignore Primary Key on Insert
Outlook inserts a new Item During Copy/Paste (or Move to Folder) operations, all values from original item are copied to the new item.
GeniusConnect removes primary key info from the new item by default.(to avoid linking multiple Outlook items to the same database record)
You can overrule this behavior by setting IgnorePrimaryKeyOnInsert value to 0 (zero)

Path: HKEY HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Genius@Work\GeniusConnect\Folders\<Folder ID>Key: IgnorePrimaryKeyOnInsert Type: DWORD
Value: 1 or 0 (1=default)

Please note:
Changing this parameter can cause duplicate items in Outlook!


Changes:
-new warning with invalid database datetime values
-new installation software used (Windows installer)

Fix:
-"No params" error message in Attachments->SQL Commands
-MS Access locking problem when saving attachments to database
-wrong IDENTIFIER QUOTE CHAR used for Swiftpage mailing SQL Statements on mySQL
-MS Outlook 2007 only: Duplicate recurrent appointments inserted to Database

GeniusConnect 4.0.0.3

New:
-Force custom-form defined in Folder Properties
When adding an item from DB to an Outlook Folder, GeniusConnect asks Outlook to Add default Item.
Outlook uses a default form, even if a custom-form has been set in Folder->Properties->"When posting to this folder, use:XXX"
This version will read the custom-form property and force Outlook to use it.
-Disable Toolbar buttons per folder
Assign Table Dialog->Options



Fix:
-wrong max.length of Unicode varchar columns with some ODBC drivers (causing truncation error on DB)
-Empty INSERT SQL statement if all mapped Outlook columns are empty
GeniusConnect will now generate a warning and ignore the item

New:

You can enter Outlook switches in: GeniusConnect Config->Synchronize Schedule->Use Windows Scheduler

-when Auto Start/Exit Outlook used, GCScheduler will block GeniusConnect Toolbar

-WaitSecondsForOutlookStart
New registry key to specify GCScheduler wait time for Outlook (only used with –s [start Outlook])
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Genius@Work\GeniusConnect\Settings
KEY: WaitSecondsForOutlookStart
DWORD: default=15 (decimal)

-new warning when DB large binary data-type mapped to a non-binary
Outlook column (varchar, char etc..)
-new conversion handling: DB large binary data-type to non-binary datatype
Conversion is NOT guaranteed!



Changes:

GeniusConnect sets flag NO_BACKSLASH_ESCAPES only for GeniusConnect connections.
(This mode was introduced in MySQL 5.0.1.)

-MS Exchange only: Add Exchange Mailbox function:
GeniusConnect will try to resolve selected user based on email address (prev. versions are using User Name) .
Problem:
When Exchange Global Address Book contains duplicate names, Exchange/Outlook can resolve the user name to non-exchange User.

-caching folders has been optimized (20% faster)

Key: MaxDBDetectExec
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: This value must be greater than or equal to one (1 decimal)

Handling empty mandatory char,varchar columns during INSERT,UPDATE
-geniusconnect will use an empty string '' instead of NULL value
when Outlook column value is an empty string

To use old behavior (using NULL values for empty character values):
-Remove the column from Mandatory Keys dialog

Key: SubmitAfterInsert

Fix:
-Pressing Escape in another application causes GeniusConnect to display "Do you want to Abort" MessageBox.
