  1. Exporting course details may not work in the web after updating from Ares 4.5.1 or 4.5.2 to Ares 4.6.0.

    The workaround for this is installing or repairing the installation of the AresServerUpdate.msi on the affected sites.

  2. The CCCStatusUpdater requires student users to be in a couse when determining if student enrollment changed

    The query in the CCCStatusUpdater run by System Manager to determine if enrollements differ from the copyright order requires student users to be in the course. Since the query is adding a where when the usertype is a student, any course that has no students are not included in the query causing the inner join to fail.
    To reproduce, create an order with CCC in the Ares client. Update the course enrollment so that it differs. Ensure that the CopyrightCourseStudents is set to Enrolled Students. Have System Manager reprocess copyright by setting CCCStatusUpdateRunNow to Yes and restart the System Manager.

  8. Changes to the browser emulation mode are not applied until the next time the Client is started.

    The web browser control will render web pages as whatever the installed version of IE is. However, this change will not take effect until the Client has been restarted.

  10. The RSS Channel Title and Channel Descriptions do not allow for static text

    Currently the RSSCourseItemsChannelDescription and RSSCourseItemsChannelTitle are customization keys that support Course table fields. When the TagProcessor proccesses the values if there is no match for a tag, it is not returning the original input. Currently the 2 keys must contain a <#Courses.Field> or the custom display text will not appear.

  11. Rightsholder names longer than 50 characters are truncated when stored in the ItemCopyright table

    The ItemCopyright.CopyrightProvider field is only 50 characters wide but may reference the Rightsholders.RightsholderName field, which is 200 characters wide. If the RightsholderName is longer than 50 characters, its value will be truncated and the copyright record will not correctly match the rightsholder, such as on the rightsholder maintenance form in the Client.

  12. The Alert Status Area in the Ares web pages will overlap the tables on the main menu.

    Because the text input elements in the column headers have a fixed size, the table can expand beyond its normal are and be overlapped by the sidebar.

  14. PasswordHint should be modified to show as a required field on NewUserRegistration.html

    PasswordHint is seeded in WebValidation for new installs to be a required field on NewUserRegistration. The NewUserRegistration.html page should be updated to indicate the Password Hint field is required. This bug was discovered when researching the automatic clearance email feature from Ares 4.6.

  15. The FromName field does not show as a changed field for a new email template

    The FromName field does not get highlighed indicating a changed field despite making changes to the field. If you are only making changes to the FromName field, the Save button does not become enabled.

    Workaround:
    To enable saving on a template that already exists if you are making changes to the FromName field, make a small change to another field of the template, like Description and the Save button becomes enabled. You can then modify the description back to its original value and save again.

  19. The Ares server installer does not allow repairs.

    When trying to run the Ares server installer in repair mode, and error occurs indicating that SQL server login failed for user 'sa' (error 18456). It looks like the SQL connection verification step is running in repair mode when it shouldn't be. This error causes the repair to fail and rollback.

  20. When exporting course information to a spreadsheet from the web, a blank worksheet is focused instead of the course details.

    The spreadsheets are created with three worksheets - Details, Items, and Sheet3. Sheet3 is focused and blank, which may cause confusion for customers.
