Version 7.7.1 Release Notes

Current Release

Version 7.7.1 was released in June 2024 and is the current production release.


Before installing this version, your Tricerat Licensing Server must be upgraded to v5.5.8.0 or later!  The upgrade to v5.5.8.0 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 v5.5.8.0.

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.

New Features and Enhancements

  • The latest SDK v5.5.8 from X-Formation was integrated to increase reliability and stability in high volume licensing environments. This requires an update to the v5.5.8.0 license server.

Improvements and Fixes

  • A ScrewDrivers Advanced Print Feature bug was fixed in the print provider that was impacting Canon printers.

  • Other minor updates, fixes and logging improvements.

Known Issues

  • This version is in-compatible with Server 2012 R2 OS. Server 2012 R2 OS is still supported by previous versions.

  • 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.
