Release Notes for Agent 12.0.x for Windows

Agent for End User Devices 12.0.x offers new functionality, features and improvements in performance.

For information about the new features of Agent 12.0.x, see What's New in Agent 12.0.x for Windows.

Deploying This Upgrade

You can deploy the Agent throughout your enterprise to collect data from devices and report to Aternity.

Known Issues

Description In Version

Firefox local policy file is ignored due to Aternity's Group Policy. This happens because Firefox ignores the local policies.json configuration file if a Group Policy exists.

For Agent 12.0.4, the issue is resolved by adding a SafeGuard for FireFox local policy file. The Agent will not deploy FireFox if the local policy file is detected.

12.0-12.0.3

Known Limitations

The Agent's A180PowerShellCollector process sometimes crashes when the script encounters unhandled exceptions on unmanaged threads (MS Windows limitation). There is no functional impact on Aternity.
