System Check

When repairing the Design Studio System Check may re-install Microsoft Visual Studio for Office Runtime (VSTOR) and Microsoft Primary Office Interops (PIA). These are typically installed as part of an Office/Excel installation but sometimes need to be repaired if updates or service packs are applied. This is only done if the XLReporter menu cannot be installed in Office.

Enhancements

Installation - Team Edition

If Internet Information Services (IIS) is enabled during the installation of the Team edition, but some of the features required for Team are not enabled, the installation would continue without warning and cause issues when Team Clients are installed.
This procedure has been changed. If any required IIS feature is not enabled, installation will not continue. A PDF document is displayed describing the prerequisites required for the Team Edition.

Data Management

History Connector Groups

Workbook Viewer

Design Studio (Excel)

If the Trust Center in Excel has the Add-ins setting Require Application Add-ins to be signed by Trusted Publisher checked, the XLReporter menu would not appear in Excel. XLReporter is now signed and the certificate added for Trusted Publishers on install.

Web Portal

If Internet Information Services (IIS) is enabled during the enabling of the Web Portal, but some of the features required are not enabled, the portal would not function correctly.
This procedure has been changed. If any required IIS feature is not enabled, the web portal is not enabled. A PDF document is displayed describing the prerequisites required.

Office 365

With some installations of Office 365 the XLReporter installation and System Check are not detecting that Excel is installed and would therefore not allow an installation of the Design Studio. This has been corrected to properly detect Excel when installed as part of Office 365. Whats New in Version 12.5
