Couple issues encountered in the Preliminary update:
  • Please be sure your antivirus is disabled so it allows the program to fully install. Some anti virus (Microsoft) have quarantined some components without notification if not disabled during installation which causes program to not function properly
    • All components not digitally signed in Prelim release, will be in official release
  • FIXED Jan 17, 2018 230 PM EST! Running msmac3D in 2D we have found causes the program to hang. We expect to have a resolution to that issue later today (Wed Jan 17th). The issue is related to the new cancel command we have for 3D simulations since with very large point clouds sometimes the simulation can run for a long time and we wanted to allow the ability to cancel. That apparently has created an issue with running msmac3D in 2D mode since it runs almost instantaneously. We expect a resolution shortly.
Please let us know if you have any problems or issues with the preliminary release.
The official release of Version 2.30 is expect in the next week or so.

Thank you for your support of McHenry Software!
