Version 7.5.1 Release Notes

Previous Release

Version 7.5.1 was released in December 2023 and has been succeeded by newer versions.


Before installing this version, your Tricerat Licensing Server must be upgraded to v5.5.2.4 or later!  The upgrade to v5.5.2.4 Tricerat Licensing Server needs to be completed before upgrading any server session agent to avoid license checkout issues!  See this page for upgrade instructions: Upgrading Your License Server  The latest version is v5.5.2.4. This version is required to support the new ScrewDrivers Reports product.

Version 7 products are not compatible with version 6 license activation codes. You will need new activation codes for version 7 products. Please contact your Salesperson for more information.


Before installing any version 7 component, you must install the .Net 4.8 Runtime. Failure to do so will prevent license activation of a nodelocked license and all UI’s will fail to run due to its dependency on this version of .Net.

Known Issues

  • We no longer support the deployment of a v6 style Simplify Console in the Pro/Enterprise installer.

  • If the ScrewDrivers Administration active tab is Reporting, the report viewer will hide portions of the File->Options or Help->About windows due to a technical limitation. A workaround does exist, just change to another tab view before displaying the File->Options or Help->About window. We do not expect this to be fixed in a future version.
