2.0 Resolved Issues

2.1 Update 1 (Version 17.0.434)

InfoConnect Workspace

  • Resolved an issue that occurred after certain October 2020 updates for Microsoft Office were installed.

    After installing these updates, InfoConnect VBA macros did not work. When loading the InfoConnect Workspace or when loading an InfoConnect host session, the following error message was displayed:

    Error initializing VBA components. One of the VBA components is missing or corrupt. VBA needs to be reinstalled.

    You could dismiss the error message and continue using the product, but the VBA programming language and VBA macros were unavailable for use.

  • Fixed an issue that caused certain EHLLAPI applications to fail to restart after they were closed.
