Layton ServiceDesk

  3. In Windows Services Console, stop the following services:
    • IIS Admin Service
    • LaytonServiceDesk
    • World Wide Web Publishing Service.
  4. Disable anti-virus software on the server, if running. This has been known to prevent the copying of files, especially .exe files, to the Program Files folder.

Bug Fixes

# Title Description
67115 IMAP Rebex issue In, to address compatibility with mail servers that require TLS, we introduced a component called Rebex. This caused issues when it ceased to operate after a period of time. This component has been removed and replaced.
67274 Request has Comment assigned from Analyst (Notify End User) Notification Not Sent Resolved a bug that prevented the Request has Comment assigned from Analyst (Notify End User) notification from being sent if Default Comment Status was set to Private and the Analyst changed the Public/Private setting on the Edit Comment page to Public at the time of creating the Comment.

Conversely, if Default Comment Status was set to Public, the notification was being sent. This behavior is preserved.
