Build #083 - January, 2018
Changes of Note
Data Execution Prevention Security Setting: Palisade software was incompatible with some more restrictive "Data Execution Prevention" security settings in Excel; this release resolved the issue. This also allows all products in the DecisionTools Suite to run inside the 32-bit Excel process for versions 2013 and higher, meaning processing times are faster and more efficient.
Large Address Aware: Palisade software was previously unable to take advantage of the ability of 32-bit Excel to allow users with 64-bit operating systems (which is most users) to use 4 GB of RAM instead of just 2 GB. This has been fixed to now allow Palisade software to support 4 GB of RAM in this environment, speeding up model performance.
Improved Licensing Security for Networks: The FLEXnet licensing system in Palisade software has been upgraded to take advantage of licensing security improvements. This makes it harder for malicious software to access sensitive directories on network servers.
Windows XP and Windows Server 2003: We will no longer support these older operating systems. This is because the latest version of the FLEXnet licensing system no longer supports these.
