SmartDFE v4.2 Release Notes

Important Upgrade Notes

If you have updated your template config files in a previous version, please note that config files are now stored in ProgramData. We recommend that you back up your config files before installing this version of SPC and migrate your changes across to the config files found in ProgramData after installation. For example, C:\Program Files\Global Graphics\Smart Print Controller\ConfigFiles will have your current config files, but SPC v4.2 now looks for them in  C:\ProgramData\Smart Print Controller\ConfigFiles and will install its config files there.

When saving settings, they are stored in a .spc file and this now includes all config files inside it. When settings are loaded from a .spc file, config files in C:\ProgramData\Smart Print Controller\ConfigFiles are overwritten with those from the .spc file. For backwards compatibility, previous .pcc files (which do not include config files) can still be used to load settings if they are renamed to .spc. Loading from these files will not change any config files in ProgramData. If you save out to .spc after loading, then all your config files will now be saved as well.
