Before installing this version, your Tricerat Licensing Server must be upgraded to v5.2.1 or later!  The upgrade to v5.2.1 Tricerat Licensing Server needs to be completed before upgrading any server component to avoid license checkout issues!  See this page for upgrade instructions: Upgrading Your License Server  The latest version is v5.2.1.

New Features and Enhancements

  • Decreased printing times on Windows 10 servers where ScrewDrivers or Simplify Printing is installed.  These improvements will affect all printing paths on all OS's however, Windows 10 19xx builds will see a dramatic decrease in printing times.
  • Added support for Linux ScrewDrivers clients (future release) to our client auto-update feature.

Improvements and Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the logging expire feature from working properly.  When logging is enabled for debugging, all logs older than the expire setting (default is 24 hours) will be deleted.
  • Fixed a bug that could result in a Simplify Notification Service.exe crash when multiple domains were used.
  • Fixed a bug in MapMangement.exe when adding maps to the database.
  • Fixed a bug in UAP Tool when displaying a printer when the printer was both Admin Assigned and User Allowed.
  • Fixed a bug that could crash the ScrewDrivers port monitor.

Known Issues

  • Installer support has been dropped for 2008 32bit operating systems.
  • When limiting the number of ScrewDrivers client printers created on the server, the limit does not consider server denied printer drivers.  Example, you could limit to build 4 printers maximum, but if 4 of those printers are denied due to the driver name, no ScrewDrivers printer will be created for the User!  This will be addressed in a future release.

  • Printing cache improvement for large print jobs
  • ScrewDrivers server increased timeout while waiting for font data from the ScrewDrivers client
