System Requirements

Hinweise für Neuinstallation und Update
  1. Extract the zip file
  2. Double-click Setup_5.0.30077.exe to start the setup
  3. Select the modules to be installed on that system
  4. (Repeat on other systems for distributed processing)

Der erste Start nach der Installation
After installing ColorServer 5.0.3, the first start takes some minutes. As long as the server data are updated, the http-server is not running, the client is disconnected and shows the ‘red’ status. A pop-up message reminds to wait until the configuration is finished. The duration of the first start depends on the size of the server data and the computer performance. Once all data is updated, the Client connection will turn to the ‘green’ status. This is valid for new installations as well as for updates.

Resolved issues

The following technical issues have been resolved in GMG ColorServer 5.0.30077. Please note that the list describes the problem, not the solution.

Connection interruptions between Workers and Server during high workload
A system high workload could lead to connection problems between the workers and the server and error message such as: „Input File With ID '{xxxxxx} Was Not Found In The Repository“. [00626, 00611, 00544]

Compatibility issue of the REST-API
ColorServer 5.0.20037 had compatibility issues with Dalim and ArtCom.

Wrong license check for JobTicket Hotfolders
The ‚Workflow Integration’ license should include the API and Job Ticket license. This was not the case. [00515]

The file name of the report was wrong when the PDF name contained two dots, e.g. ABC.p1.pdf.
