As I write this entry Time Clock MTS Version 3.2.2 is being uploaded to our web-servers. This minor release includes some fixes to the employee image capturing features of the software, a fix to some MySQL database creation code, and a fix to a problem that a recent Windows update caused in many programs (not just Time Clock MTS). Details of the fixes are below:
- In cases where there was latency in database writes (especially when using SQL Server or MySQL) captured employee images could sometimes become mis-matched with the times they were associated with. This has now been resolved.
- One user was reporting a case where the image capture directory could not be opened to view captured images. I’ve put in some extra logging to try to work out why this is happening.
- An error was thrown by anyone upgrading to V3 of the software if they were using the MySQL backend. This has now been fixed.
- Referenced the backwards compatible ADO type library rather than the ADO 2.5 type library. This is because our main build machine is now a Windows 7 x64 machine with SP1. This problem is documented in this Microsoft KB Article.
With direct reference to the last point this is a failing with Service Pack 1 of Windows 7 rather than anything to do with Time Clock MTS. If you install and run our software and receive the error “Error 430 : Class does not support Automation or does not support expected interface” please get in contact with us as soon as possible so we can get to the bottom of the problem.
