Postby Greg Dawes » Wed Sep 24, 2008 9:28 am

X1 ® Professional Client Version 6.2.2 Beta
(Build 3625) (Created: Wed Sep 17 09:39:13 PDT 2008)

You can download the X1 Professional Client 6.2.2 (Beta) by using this link: (link to build 3625 removed)

**Important Considerations**
- Please restrict all comments regarding this beta release to this section of the forum
- Remember that we always advise that you uninstall any currently installed version of X1, without saving your settings/preferences, before installing any beta build.
- Any user upgrading from 5.5.5 or previous will be required to rebuild their index files.

Release Notes

• Implemented new Group Policy Object to allow X1 to skip indexing of Symantec Enterprise Vault Outlook shortcuts.

Bug Fixes
• Fixed a bug that caused X1 to lose all items indexed in the Outlook mailbox for a case where the X1 cannot access the email from Exchange.
• Fixed a bug that generated error messages when Symantec Offline Vaults database files and profiles were renamed/deleted.
• Fixed a bug that caused X1 files real-time indexing to delay updating the index.
• Fixed a bug that caused the X1 viewer installation to fail.

X1 Supported Platforms Guide
X1 Technologies goes out of its way to explicitly test our products with a number of third-party products. Our goal is to test and validate that our products work with those products our customers and partners use most frequently. Just because a particular version of the third-party software is not listed on the supported platforms guide does not mean that the product will not work with X1, just that we do not explicitly test that version of the application.

• iPodSync – Searching Microsoft Outlook contacts is broken when using iPodSync. http://www.ipod-sync.com/
• Outlook Express – When using X1 to open, forward, or reply to Outlook Express email messages with attachments, the new email message will not contain the attachments.
• Access – Unable to preview Access Database Formats beyond Version 2.0 or indexing any Access Database formats.

• Indexing of removable media is not supported.

• X1 Installer will not start X1 after install in Vista to prevent conflicts with Outlook.
• Files RTI is not compatible with Microsoft Vista junction points.
• 64-bit operating systems are not currently supported.
• X1 will ignore registry parameters passed from Windows Vista searches for variables such as My Computer, Recycling Bin, Network Locations, Desktop.
• The F3 command in Windows Vista does not send a query to the default search engine if the cursor is placed in the Windows Explorer search box.
• Diskeeper I-FAAST is known to lock files needed for file indexing which causes X1 to stop indexing and clear the index.
• X1 will not index Lotus Notes email that only appear in the "All Documents" view.

• X1 Client upgrades with deskbar enabled in Windows Vista will prompt a Windows Explorer re-start.

• X1 does not support double byte characters in the installation directory path.
• X1 does not support double byte characters for the Mozilla Thunderbird and Outlook Express mail clients.
• X1 does not support double byte characters for PST files due to MAPI limitations.
• X1 does not support double byte characters for Lotus Notes passwords.

Upgrade Considerations:
• The following settings will not be preserved upon an upgrade to the 6.0 Professional client:
• Changes to the actions toolbar.
• The "Load X1 at Startup" setting.

Windows Vista User Access Control (UAC) Considerations:
• The following actions require administrator authentication:
- The ability to install X1.
- Registering the product for all users.
- Setting shortcut settings for all users.
- Adding/removing plugins.
• For these actions, an authentication dialog will prompt for a username and password with administrator privileges.

To disable Windows Search on Vista follow these steps:
• 1. Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
• 2. Find the "Windows Search" service.
• 3. Right-click on the "Windows Search" service and select Properties from the menu.
• 4. On the Properties > General tab, click the "Stop" button to halt the service, and select "Disabled" from the Startup type pulldown.
• 5. Click OK to apply the new settings and close the Properties dialog.

Nice additions to the installer.

Why still the Yahoo! options?

Tells me that it needs to update "Windows Explorer". Worrying to the paranoid.

Wrecks the toolbar arrangement and settings. But that is par for the course ever since this issue came up years ago.
