2nd October, 2002 - Version 3.0a (2nd
Diagnosis checks for Office
XP and stops it activating Office's "Install on Demand" feature
when the Builder software is activated. This is a recognised bug in Office
Version 3.0a released
This maintenance version repairs
a few bugs and omissions in Version 3.0 notably...
- Important Clues now appears in the on-screen
debriefing, if the on-screen
briefing is selected.
- Office 2000 bug. If Office 2000 was
installed in the default mode on the machine being installed to, Diagnosis
would often boot up the Office installer when the builder was activated.
This was because Office 2000 thought an html editor was needed and activated
its "Install on Demand" feature. It's a recognised bug in
Office 2000 with Windows NT, 2000, ME and 98. Diagnosis now checks for
Office 2000 and stops it from doing this.
- Other minor bug fixes carried out to
We have also decided to make the Diagnosis
Player available free of charge at this time.
