Product notes

  • Install may fail on Windows if logged in with an account with non-alphanumeric characters

    The install on Windows may fail if you are logged in with an account that includes non-alphanumeric characters. If this occurs, try logging in to the machine with an account that only includes alphanumeric characters and run the install again.

  • Email stops working using the internal SMTP server

    By default, Heroix Longitude uses an internal SMTP engine, called Aspirin, to send email and does not require any configuration from the user. In many sites, this has worked correctly in a production environment, but some sites have experienced problems sending email. If you experience problems with the internal SMTP server, follow the instructions in the online help under “Configuring a User-Defined SMTP Server” to configure Heroix Longitude to use a different SMTP server.
