This is a beta version of software, it has not been fully tested.

In the Unattended Mode Options added "Sleep all day on these days:" setting with checkboxes for each day.
For NexCycle in CA, this allows the following configuration: Sleep all day Sunday and Monday; operational Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
To do this, check "Sun" and "Mon" checkboxes, set the "sleep time" to 16:00 and the "wake time" to 10:00.

To increase the speed when WinRVM is run on a Windows 7 netbook PC:

- For barcode-client RVMs, when the RVM can't hold any more cached barcodes (reaches MAXCLIENTUPCS) WinRVM now just updates the "D" file in \bb instead of creating a full Q file (this prevents an annoying long delay before the RVM will accept the next container).
When sending barcodes to the RVM WinRVM now just update the "D" files instead of creating a Qfile.

- Added "Sort barcodes for barcode-client RVMs" checkbox to the General Options which defaults to disabled. Leave this disabled for maximum speed.


Installation Notes:

If setting up WinRVM on a PC for the first time, follow the installation instructions first!

To upgrade from an older version of WinRVM, you have several choices:
This version requires a full-install if updating from WinRVM prior to 3.0.0.

a) Remote update (for sites running in Unattended Mode or Interactive Mode).
Use SiteZipCopier to copy WinRVM327.zip   to the corresponding site ID zip filenames and FTP to the "tosite" folder.
The next time each site calls in they will download the zip file and install the new version. For sites with modems, you can also use RVMStatus (or call the site once and hang up) to force an immediate call-back.

On-site manual update:

b) Run WinRVM and select "Host | Check for WinRVM program update" and choose "yes" to install the new version (requires internet connection).
Note: this only updates to the latest fully tested version, not beta versions.
After the update is complete, click "Help | About" to verify the correct version of WinRVM was loaded.
If WinRVM says you must perform a full install, follow choice d.

c) Run Envipco Update software. Note: this only updates to the latest fully tested version, not beta versions.

d) Manual installation of WinRVM.exe. Copy WinRVM.exe from inside the zip file in step a above to c:\program files\WinRVM.

e) Manual full installation:

  1. Uninstall your old version of WinRVM via "start | control panel | add or remove programs". 
    Your old WinRVM program settings/options will be maintained. This step isn't mandatory, but will prevent numerous copies of WinRVM from displaying in the add/remove app.

  2. Exit all running programs.

  3. Download the self-extracting setup program: WinRVM327Setup.exe .
    If you want to install WinRVM on a different PC and the only method you have to get the program there is via floppy disk:
    Run WinZip and open the Setup program ( .exe file). Unzip all the files (setup.exe, setup.lst, winrvm1.cab, winrvm2.cab, winrvm3.cab) to multiple floppy disks. Copy all files to the other PC. In step 4 run setup.exe on the other PC.

  4. Run the exe file downloaded in step 3.
    Note: you may need to log in as administrator to run the setup program, otherwise you may receive errors such as "unable to register file".
    The installation program may ask you to reboot your PC and rerun the setup program. 
    If the setup program displays "Setup cannot continue because some system files are out of date on your system" after rebooting and running setup a second time, click here.
    If the setup program displays "A file being copied is not newer than the file currently on your system. It is recommended that you keep your existing file. Do you want to keep this file?", answer "Yes".

  5. You may delete the setup program downloaded in step 3 if desired.

  6. If you didn't previously download prompt.zip from WinRVM 1.36, download it, unzip, and copy prompt.ini to \cf1500.
