Vimalin for Windows 2.5.459 update

Vimalin for Windows 2.5.459 update

You can download the update for Vimalin from:

https://www.vimalin.com/download/Vimali … .5.459.exe
(or use the Vimalin -> "Check for Updates" menu option)

How-to update
First uninstall the old version from the Add/Remove programs or in Windows 10 the Settings -> Apps & Features screen. If you keep defaults you are fine and nothing changes.
Only after the old Vimalin is uninstalled run the installer to update to Vimalin 2.5

Here's the list of changes since version 2.5.432:

General changes

  • Update to latest OpenSSL library 1.0.2u

  • VM's that have a non local disk now also log the details about what disk was non local to aide with troubleshooting.

Added new guest OS support for:

  • CentOS 8

New screen: "Process Queue"
This allows you to see each task that still is in the process queue. You can also delete tasks if needed.

Backup Jobs:

  • When using the "Backup Now" button, the backup job immediately gets validated and if it cannot run then you will get a message about that in the user interface. Previously the error would only show up in the log and you would have to go "hunt and peck" in order to find out why the backup did not run.

Backup Target:

  • Setting a backup target to an existing backup target will offer to import existing VMs. Not all of the existing VMs would be detected, this has now been fixed.

Backup Archive:

  • The "Get Info" screen was displaying the actual VM bundle size for "Total Size" instead of Processed Size. This means that for incomplete backups it would show the wrong total count. Fixed.

Register License:

  • When registering a license it would display a nice checkmark for when you correctly enter a new license, but it wouldn't replace the "demo license nn days" with "registered", so it could be confusing to see if the license registered correctly or not. Fixed.
