I was performing some backwards compatibility testing and noticed a few things on the new Vision Client Launcher that I wanted to share.
- First, the interface is very clean, easy to follow, so well done on that part.
- When manually adding a new gateway, the popup window disappears when focus to the Vision window is lost. This doesn’t occur when doing so within the Vision Client Launcher window (requires using the “X” to close it).
- Also when manually adding a new gateway, can a refresh button be added to retry the connection? To try again requires modifying the gateway path.
- When attempting to add a new gateway manually and it errors out and says “Host Invalid”, is there any way to add more detail about what is invalid. I’ve tried this locally and don’t have a problem connecting, but when on another computer, I only get “Host Invalid” and don’t know where the problem exists. The visionclientlauncher.log does not show any errors.
