Windows update: Fluid Mask 3.0.4 available

We have an update for Fluid Mask 3 of Windows available on our download pages. The latest update is 3.0.4 (instead of 3.0.3) for technical reasons, so it’s not that you missed a whole version or anything ;o)

Before you download and install please read this

– Do _not_ uninstall your current version of Fluid Mask 3. It is not necessary and will save you time and a re-registration. Simply go to the usual download page, download and run the new installer. Fluid Mask will ask you if it is okay that it overwrites the previous version. And yes – that it okay 🙂

Changes in this release:

– some users experienced that they had to re-register their copy of Fluid Mask 3 although they had already done so. This was connected to the licensing technology that we use and has been sorted out now

– problems installing and registering FM3 on Vista (a user who installed as admin was not able to use FM3 when logged in as a standard user. There was a workaround available in the past. This workaround is now redundant and the problem fixed with 3.0.4.

– a few improvements to usability during the installation and registration process – this was necessary mainly for our Vista users

– this new version will not remove the license file any more when a users uninstalls FM3 (this was not the case for Windows versions up to 3.0.2). That’s a good thing because a user will not have to register again after uninstalling+reinstalling

Questions and postcards to, please ;o)
