This version overview lists all new features, improvements and fixed bugs of the software abylon LOGON SSO Pro. (Link to complete versionshistory)
Icon-Info: = New function, = Function cancelled, = Error correction or update
In addition to minor and major optimizations, the new version offers new functionalities and increased speed.
All our modules can be switched into admin mode by the shield icon. Since this version the software can also be switched back to user mode. This is necessary for example, because Drag&Drop of files only works in the same context.
Due to an unfavorable click during the Windows logon, the logon windows of
Significant performance increase of the lodge waiting routines.
The positioning and font output was corrected and standardized in all waiting dialogs.
After reinstalling the software and directly creating a drive or account, the corresponding page of the settings dialog is displayed.
The SSO functionality (Single Sign-On) is deactivated in the programs abylon KEYSAFE and abylon LOGON SSO Pro from version 19.x. An independent solution for the SSO functionality will be offered shortly. Please use the previous version 18.x or earlier.
To prevent problems with the registry dialog, it is now always placed in the front panel (TopMost). Now the registration dialog shouldn't slip into the background anymore when clicking on another window.
Under special conditions, the password entry window may not always have the focus to enter the password directly. This was solved programmatically with a so-called mouse click event. Should this cause problems, this can be deactivated via a registry flag. For this, see the support page under password!
NOTE: Please note that the password scrambler converts certain special characters into other characters. If the program of abylonsoft does not recognize the password input correctly, this should be repeated with activated or deactivated password scrambler.
The start of the SSO functionality was prevented with the missing SSOCONIG.INI file. From this version on, the config file is copied to the correct directory.
Stability and speed improvement of the deletion, encryption and logon software and more!
The files APM_LSMSNT32.DLL, APM_LSMSNT32x64.DLL, APMPNTSec.DLL and APMPNTSecX64.DLL are gone! This has no negative influence on the functionality, but accelerates the workflow
Performance problems after software reinstallation could be localized and fixed.
An error in the DLL initialization with active waiting dialog could be solved
When card monitoring is inactive, a corresponding text is output as a hint in the tray icon (to the left of the clock).
From this version on the LOGON card monitoring is only started if at least one account is created.
The speed of chipcard access has been accelerated significantly. It is irrelevant whether the chip card is used for Windows logon or encryption. Further optimizations can be made on request
Numerous new features and improvements of the company software abylon LOGON Business and other software products
The superimposed admin icons have been removed from the settings dialog. If in the future a function is selected for which no sufficient rights exist, this is indicated in a message window.
The setup routines of the program are only started after the setup wizard is finished.
Various adjustments and optimizations of GUI and functions
In the settings under the tab Administrative settings there is now the option Allow settings dialog only for administrators. If this function is activated, the settings dialog can only be opened if the user is in the group of administrators
The waiting dialog when starting the application is now displayed as a simple hexagon with program name
The automatic monitoring of application windows for autopmatic training has been removed for performance reasons. New logon dialogs can now be taught-in via the tray icon and the menu item Application window teach-in.
Negative window coordinates are now intercepted programmatically. In addition, the unpredictable jumping of the window during slicing would be prevented.
The functionality RemoteAdmin was removed from all modules, because the registry access via the network did not work reliably since Windows Vista. With the software abylon LOGON Business the settings defined on the server are distributed to the clients via a restricted user profile
Drag&Drop operations over windows with different rights are now displayed with the no entry symbol. For example, no files from the File Explorer (user context) can be dragged into our dialogs if this was started with admin rights. This is also shown at the top of the dialog
Various optimizations of all programs from abylonsoft
The problem with jumping windows was fixed.
Automatic password management has been deactivated
New functionalities and optimizations of abylon LOGON Business
The size of the program windows can now be adjusted to the maximum width of large screens
Adaptation of the License Agreement to the new Data Protection Ordinance DSGVO
The license agreement was revised in German and English and adapted to the new data protection regulation DSGVO. The file is displayed in the setup and is attached to the program as a PDF file.
Memory problem of a registry check function has been fixed.
Many new features for abylon LOGON Business and abylon APP-BLOCKER
The map support has been optimized and adapted to today's conditions
Under Windows 10 you can't leave the abylon LOGON mask if the option "Change to normal logon with abort (ESC) in lock mode" is disabled. Additionally the option "Allow change to normal logon with abort (ESC) in login mode"
Starting from this version the support for the CT-API is stopped. This means that old health insurance cards are no longer supported. New eGK (health cards) are recognized with activated option "Other smart cards" and can be used for the Windows login.
Problems with the EC-Bankcard or HBCI-Card have been fixed. However, this means that the login account must be created again.
New software product abylon LOGON Business and general acceleration by optimized function call
Update and position problems with the progress bar have been fixed
A small window is displayed for tedious processes. This tells the user that something is still happening and that he has to wait a little longer.
A significant acceleration of the programs was achieved by optimizing the internal function calls
General error corrections
During the Windows login the waiting dialog could get into the background by a faulty click. Thus this dialog was invisible for the user and could only be made visible again via ALT-TAB. This problem was fixed so that the dialog always remains in the foreground
In the settings dialog on the Logon Accounts page, ACOS3 processor chip cards can be initialized via the "CardInit" icon. This prevents incorrect initialization during operation, for example if the card reader does not respond within a reasonable time.
Internally the programs have been extended so that "InApp purchases" are possible in the future
Some windows have been standardized in color and design.
Cloud Support, Tray Icon Conversion and SSO Optimization

Clicking on the tray icon opens the program window with the left mouse button and the menu with the right mouse button.
Different versions with .NET 3.5 and 4, as well as optimization of the user interface and functions
All listed software products are now available in 2 versions. In principle, both versions can be installed on all supported Windows versions. However, we recommend the version compiled with Visual Studio 2008 up to Windows 7 and for mobile use. This setup requires the .net-Framework 3.5. We recommend the version compiled with Visual Studio 2015 for Windows 8 and 10, which requires the .net-Framework 4.0 and the Redistribution Pack. As long as the downloads are not differentiated yet, the version for Windows 8 and 10 is primarily offered. To get the version up to Windows 7, the file name must be completed with the character string "vc2008_". This results in a file name of "vc2008_[setup.exe]"
The program dialogs (GUI) would be optically reworked and the usability would be simplified.
Incorrect display of progress indicator has been fixed.
