This version offers several improvements and corrections, such as:
- It's now possible to use the ActiveExit configuration utility to save the settings directly to the Group Policy objects (GPO), without the use of the administrative template file.
- It's now possible to monitor the CPU activity level, in addition to the keyboard or the mouse.
- The monitoring of the Remote Desktop Connection users is no longer offered.
- Several other minor improvements and corrections have been made.
As usual, ActiveExit is free for the home users. For the business customers, the trial version of ActiveExit comes with a free license for 30 days of full use. If you have not tried it yet, please feel free to download it and give it a try.
And, of course, if you have purchased your ActiveExit license within the last 12 months, you can upgrade to this version free of charge (for the earlier purchasers the 50% upgrade discount is also available.)
Troubleshooting the upgrade of ActiveExit
If you've installed ActiveExit 17.3 on a computer that used to have an earlier version of ActiveExit previously installed, you may encounter the following issue: when running the ActiveExit configuration utility, all entry boxes are grayed out and pressing the Apply button results in a message asking you to use the Group Policy manager instead.
If this computer is a part of a domain that is indeed managed via Group Policy then you should follow the advice and continue managing the ActiveExit settings on the server using a GPO.
If, however, this is a stand-alone computer not connected to a domain network, then you could resolve this issue as follows:
- Close ActiveExit configuration utility and run Registry Editor (regedit.exe);
- Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Policies/WinAbility;
- Delete the key ActiveExit under this key;
- Close Registry Editor and run ActiveExit configuration utility again. Now you should be able to edit the settings and apply them to the computer.
If the above does not resolve the issue, please contact us for further assistance.
