d7x 18.12.8 Release Notes https://www.d7xtech.com/d7x-18-12-8-release-notes/ https://www.d7xtech.com/d7x-18-12-8-release-notes/#respond Sat, 08 Dec 2018 19:24:29 +0000 https://www.d7xtech.com/?p=15952 Changes:

  • Added confirmation prompt to menu setting to disable/enable User Account Control.
  • Most config settings moved over to new d7x format.
  • From the session start prompt, the auto-login users list now excludes standard user (non-admin) accounts entirely from the list of users to select.  You can still type in a standard username and d7x will prompt you to promote the account to the Administrators group.
  • Previously auto-login (if attempted on a standard user account) did not display a warning message (nor the prompt to promote account to the Administrators group) and cancelled the operation without warning.  Now standard users only show up in the Users drop down menu/dialog for auto-login, and if you attempt to set auto-login for a standard user you will be prompted to promote that user to the Administrators group.



  • Lock screen was unlocking for everything BUT the tech password.
  • Load Profile setting wasn’t populating in Config.
  • Renamed user accounts would display in some areas of d7x as the old username, not the new one.  This did affect Auto-Login functionality.

  • You can no longer bypass the Technician Password prompt (during initial setup) without creating a password.
  • Corrected an extended time/freeze and excessive RAM usage while creating a screen shot.
  • When using d7xRDT with a newer license type, d7x no longer fails to recognize the license after download.  This release adds additional checks to a fix from last release.
  • Corrected two issues with the Run Program dialog (shell extensions, displayed when right clicking on a file) was not pre-populating with the EXE that you right clicked on to launch the dialog, and the d7x process also wasn’t terminating when finished (if d7x was not running already.)
  • A few instructions/info in Config were corrected.

  • Corrected an issue retrieving new license formats (for purchases since Oct 2018) from d7xRDT, which forced users to enter the account credentials on deployment/startup.
    • Please note:  Although the error is corrected for newer license files, affected users may need to recreate your d7xRDT with this newest release in order to avoid being forced to enter in the Technician Password during deployment.



  • Added Windows automatic update override settings to d7x Config interface.
  • Moved d7II based legacy .\Config directory into .\d7x Resources\Config_Legacy

d7x v18.11.17 Release Notes https://www.d7xtech.com/d7x-v18-11-17-release-notes/ https://www.d7xtech.com/d7x-v18-11-17-release-notes/#respond Sat, 17 Nov 2018 16:11:06 +0000 https://www.d7xtech.com/?p=15866 d7x v18.11.17 Release Notes


  • Starting d7x while holding down the SHIFT key will run KillEmAll automatically killing all non-essential processes.
  • Replaced “Run Program” functionality (from the Run Menu) with a new dialog containing more options, including command line argument usage.
  • Now there should only be one (or two at most)  ‘Examine File’ windows open, with new tabs populating for each subsequent file to examine.  Note that two windows will be opened if the first ‘Examine File’ was called from an instance of d7x running under the local system account, then a subsequent call opens the dialog from a d7x instance running in user mode.
  • Starting in System/Service modes from the startup prompt no longer triggers the incomplete startup flag on relaunch.
