What's New in OpenInsight 10.0.4
Starting with OpenInsight 10.0.4, "child" processes launched from OpenInsight can be configured so that they do not consume additional license seats. In particular, CTO, AREV64, BRW, and O4W calls (using the engine server's built-in web server) made from a copy of OpenInsight will not count against the licensed count of users.
For example, a single user copy of OpenInsight can now run the IDE, a CTO session, and generate a BRW report at the same time.
Note that this enhancement requires both OpenInsight 10.0.4 (or above), and the Universal Driver 5.2 (or above).
OpenInsight 10.0.4 will work with the Universal Driver 5.1, but it will not exhibit these license enhancements until it is
"paired" with a UD 5.2.
To take advantage of this license enhancement for O4W and engine server tasks, users/developers must update their eserver.cfg file (either directly or through the Settings dialogs). In particular, any passwords that are currently explicitly embedded in the eserver.cfg can be replaced with an asterisk ("*"); this indicates that the specific connection should use the enhanced licensing.
This also has the additional advantage of no longer requiring manual updates to the eserver.cfg file when passwords are changed for the applications or users defined in the connection string. (As an additional enhancement, the username can also be replaced with "*" if you wish to use the 'default user' created for an application).
OpenInsight 10 (10.0.4) will be the final version to target Microsoft’s .Net framework version 4.6. The next version of OpenInsight 10 will target .Net 4.7.
Certain versions of Windows (for example, those running Windows 10 version 1507 or earlier) may have difficulty installing the .Net 4.7 framework. Before you install the next release of OpenInsight 10, please ensure that all required systems have been upgraded to .Net 4.7. For more information click HERE.

Starting the Presentation Server
While most of an application’s configuration information is stored in various application database records, there are some startup options that need to be determined before the actual database can be accessed (i.e. before the OpenEngine virtual machine is loaded).
The Presentation Server can be configured with a wide range of options at startup, via means of an RXI configuration file, and/or a set of command line switches. Both methods support nearly all of the same options, but any option specified by a command line switch always overrides the same option specified in the configuration file.
Presentation Server configuration (RXI) files
There are nearly twenty options that can be applied when starting the Presentation Server and adding these as switches to a command line shortcut can be a tedious and error-prone exercise. In order to remedy this, it is possible to create an RXI (Revelation Xml Ini) file to store these options instead, where they are read and parsed by the PS during its boot-up sequence. Read On...
