LOG & UIU DATA FOLDER MIGRATION FROM PROGRAM FILES TO PROGRAMDATA
UIU log files are now located under the ProgramData\UIU directory. Additionally, resources needed by each application are extracted/placed in the ProgramData\UIU\bin directory (temporarily.) Program Files is no longer used for any resources or logs.
MDT task sequence fails when attempting to invoke the UIU Machine Configuration task, citing an invalid architecture, during the deployment of Windows 10x64 "Anniversary Edition" (a.k.a. 1607 or v10.0.14393). For unknown reasons, MDT interprets the "AMD64" processor architecture for only this specific version of Windows 10 as "amd64" in the offline registry. Interestingly, after Mini-Setup finishes, Windows restores this value to the the expected "AMD64".
UIUPrep is now case-insensitive in its analysis of the processor architecture string value.
An installation of UIU plug-in for MDT which has been updated past v18.104.22.168 may experience an error ("Object Reference not set to an instance of an object") upon uninstallation.
The Updater application now checks for MSI Installer Packages that are registered during installation and adjusts the internal .NET 3.5 requirement to .NET 4.0.
In uninstalling/re-installing the UIU plug-in for MDT, residual portions of the UIU additions in MDT's ACTIONS.XML may remain, causing errors during task sequence editing or execution.
Code modified to ensure proper removal of UIU portions of the MDT ACTIONS.XML upon uninstallation.
UIU Updater application - 'Updates Available' screen erroneous versions displayed.
When the UIU plug-in Updater application is launched and locates available updates on Big Bang LLC's update site, The Updater application will display the specifics of the currently installed application/UIU database as well as the versions of the available downloads. Under some conditions, the version of the plug-in and updater applications may be preseted erroneously as '22.214.171.124'. This is a superficial reporting of version numbers and will in no way affect the successful updating of neither the UIU application nor the UIU database.
The error has been corrected in this release for the UIU plug-in for MDT.
