Windows 8.1 will be released on October 18. Sooner or later, the ThinLinc client should support this platform.
Sigh. Windows 8.1 has version number 6.3, but in most cases, GetVersionEX() will report version 6.2 instead. From http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dn302074.aspx: "The main cause of issues with changes to the operating system version was a result of how developers performed version checking. However due to the poor checks, the message would often show that the app needed to be run on XP or later, which of course the newest OS is. More often than not, the newest OS would run the app without any issues if it were not for these checks." Their "solution" is also to deprecate GetVersionEx and introduce a new VersionHelper Win32 API. Well, perhaps. The documentation is only preliminary and only applies to the 8.1 preview. Sigh.
Documentation and tlclient version check updated in 27941. Brief testing was fine: * Sound * Local Drives * Printing * Smart card auth * Smart card tunnel Not tested on 2012R2 yet; can be done in test cycle.
Tested ThinLinc client 4109 on Windows 8.1 > * Sound Works as expected > * Local Drives Works as expected > * Printing Works as expected both with and without local printer dialog. > * Smart card auth Works as expected > * Smart card tunnel Works as expected
I had one case were tlclient.log couldn't be renamed to tlclient.log.old and this was NOT while the logfile was selected in a explorer view. Couldn't reproduce this and I verified it during my tests and it worked as expected...
Tested using client 4113 on Windows 2012 Server 64bit (Virtual machine). > * Sound Not tested > * Local Drives Works as expected > * Printing Works as expected. > * Smart card auth Not tested > * Smart card tunnel Not tested
