JobMatix Version: v3.0.3073.311 (Build date: 11-Mar-2013)

This version of JobMatix was created to allow for two-user and single-user Licences. This version can be used for all types of user licence- unlimited (max 31) or restricted. See the licensing page for details. The restriced licences are available at a lower entry cost, and restricts the number of contemporaneous users at any one time logged in to the JobMatix database..  Still based on the Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0.

Updates made since v3.0.3071.0

1) Expanded User Licence system- This version allows for Two-user and Single-user licences in addition to the Three-user licence released previously..

JobMatix users can now choose the licence appropriate to their circumstances.. The new version will continue to show a count of current JobMatix DB sessions, with a mouse-over display listing all current JobMatix users. This new version will continue to support the normal (full) JobMatix licence, which currently allows a maximum of thirty-one (31) users logged in to JobMatix at any one time.

2) Re-vamped New Job form (screen)..  The New-Job/Amend-Job form has had a make-over to make data entry clearer and smoother-

(a) In the entry of the GoodsInCare information, items can now be directly entered into a DataGridView control, with inbuilt dropdowns for GoodsTypes and Brands..

(b) “Extras In Care” check-boxes can now be modified when amending the Job Service Agreement..

(c) Only two panels (tabs) needed now for data entry.. now with “Next”/”Back” buttons.

3) Re-Connection to SQL Server:  In the event of the loss of session with SQL Server, the Jobmatix client will attempt a new login/connection..

4) Various Fixes-  eg. Fixed to stop JobsTree Refresh routine being re-entered when the Refresh button is clicked repeatedly.. This was causing excessive queueing of SQL requests. (Same problem also fixed for “My Jobs” Checkbox and Jobs Order dropdown..)

Also, on the New Job form, the “Symptoms” reference list is now updated after the reference table has been changed.

5) Fixes to GoodsInCare form to fix updating problem in 3073.21. Also fixed problem with Cancelling out of GoodsInCare form resulting in loss of all goods entered..

6) Updates to JobMatix DB RESTORE function. (Fixes error in not retrieving list of currently connected users.. Also, if RESTORE completed ok, now adds current Windows user to SQL Server logins, and as JobMatix DB Owner.. Also logs RESTORE info to JobMatix runtime log..)

JobMatix Version: v3.0.3067.0 (Build date: 27-July-2012)

To install: Download and double-click on the executable:JobMatix3-SFX-INSTALL_v3.0.3067.0_27Jul2012-1827.exe
There is no need to register any component, the supporting dll’s stay in the application folder.
UAC Note: The setup program requests the highest privilege according to the status of the user running the program. However, in some cases in may be necessary to use “Run As administrator..” to execute the install package.

Once the package is installed, the JobMatix program will be started, so that new users can create/setup the JobMatix database.
See the Quickstart Guide (under Support) for info on setting up JobMatix.

NB: NO report program is included in this package.. Shops upgrading from Version 2 of JobMatix will need to copy their JobReports.exe program into the JobMatix3 folder. New users who start off straight into JobMatix3 will need to run the INSTALL package for the (still VB6) JobReports.exe program. This also applies to existing users who may have re-built their server and do not want to re-install JobMatix V2. This reports package is available via the JobReports link below on this page.

Download JobMatix V3.0.3067.0 Install Package

NB: This version replaces Build 3061.1 and Build 3063.0.. Build 3063.0 fixed a problem with certain Licence Key values that cause an out-of-bounds index runtime error at start-up..

Build 3067.0 has the following updates:
(i) Help (F1) Links have been added to all main forms.. this is to prepare for F1 Help when the .CHM help file is completed and delivered.
(ii) On the New Job form, the entering of the Problem Symptoms has been simplified. The Listbox of symptoms will always be visible, and does not need to be closed.
(iii) Editing of Reference tables (ListEdit form) has been tidied up.
(iv) A new user preference has been added to enable auto switching to Full Screen mode after Startup. (Note that with .Net Framework 2.0 there is a bug which causes unpredictable results if the JobMatix shortcut is set to start in Full Screen. Microsoft Corp. will not be fixing this.)
(v) The Quickbooks POS option has been disabled.. As the QuickPos version is still in test, this release supports only MYOB RetailManager as a retail host system.
(vi) Some fixes have been made to the Build Quote Jobs functions.
