- WebStore SSL.3DES encryption has been removed from use in the Web Server while using a SSL certificate to meet recent PCI standards. If your Web Server’s SSL cert requires 3DES to properly function, you can use 3DES by adding SSLCipher=DEFAULT to the [startup] section of the WebStoreWS.INI file.

- WebStore Orders.Now keeping “pending orders” waiting for payment in the checkout process for 30 days. Keeping the pending order for 30 days lets Technical Support review why orders were declined.
- Month-End.The Month-End Process has been enhanced to run the month end a 2nd time for remote store locations if needed. If your data for remote locations is too extensive, or you just want to keep less transactions for remote locations, you can set up the Month-End to run a second time and remove more information for the “remotes”.
a. On the Web Server, edit the WebStoreWS.INI file.
b. Add the section [MonthEnd] at the bottom of the file
c. Add the entry, stores=xxxx, where xxx is a list of stores
separated by commas or with a dash.
stores=1-99. This setting will activate the month end for a second pass and run it for all “remote” stores.
stores=2,3. This setting will activate the month end for a second pass and run it for store 2 and 3 if they are a “remote” store.
d. Enter the months to keep for each of the following:
inv=12. Keeps 12 months of remote location invoices
po=1 Keeps 1 month of remote location po’s
rec=2 Keeps 2 months of remote location receiving lists
tcl=6 Keeps 6 months of remote location time clock entries
tlo=6 Keeps 6 months of remote location user activity logs
invpaid=1 Only deletes invoices if paid. Use 0 to delete all invoices
recpaid=1 Only deletes rec lists if paid. Use 0 to delete all invoices
** Very Important ** if you do not enter the above entries, the item will default to the standard settings for the month-end plus it will delete all invoices and receiving lists regardlesss of paid or not.
The above setting will delete all remote location transactions up to the current month when the month end is run
e. Running the Month-End. When the month end is run, it will display both the Month-End settings for the local stores and the remote stores if the Month-End second pass is active.

- Install Program Update. In some cases after installing a program update, the program still prompted the user to install an update after it was successfully installed. Fixed now.
- Restoring Backups. In some cases restoring a backup was unable to complete because exclusive access to the SQL DB was not granted. This should be fixed.
- Export Inventory. Exporting inventory included “blank” deleted items. Fixed Now.
- WebStore Vendor Codes. Vendor codes with a “&” in the code would not display product listings for the vendor. Fixed now.
