Windows Support
AgWare has been testing Windows 10 since it released on July 29, and we’re happy to announce that we have found no major compatibility issues with AgWare DataLog and AgWare ClickForms. We found one minor issue with the folder tree spacing that will be fixed in a future release.

Final DataLog release for Windows XP
DataLog 4.1 will be the last fully supported version for XP, and we will not be testing future UAAR versions on XP. If you have any questions regarding discontinued XP support, please don’t hesitate to let us know. AgWare will continue to support Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

New DataLog Version
DataLog 4.1.5 is now available for download on our website. This version fixes how we load the configuration defaults. If you upgrade from a 3. software verison directly to 4.1.5, no action is required to fix the improvement configuration defaults. However, if you upgrade from a 4. software version to 4.1.5, you will need to go into the improvement input methods and reset how your effective age is calculated (see screenshot below). To access the improvement input methods screen, open a sale, go to the improvements analysis section, click the improvement options button, and choose input method. Once the input method window appears choose your desired method and click OK. You will only need to do this once as the program will remember your setting. We apologize for any inconvenience this bug has caused.

Annual Meeting and Training Class
AgWare will be holding its annual user’s meeting this year in San Antonio, Texas at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort in conjunction with the ASFMRA National Meeting. The annual meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at the RW Pavilion from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. After our user’s meeting the ASFMRA meeting kicks off with the “Welcome to Texas Dinner” at the National Shooting Complex from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. If you have never been to an ASFMRA chapter welcome dinner they are a great time and we highly recommend attending. There will be buses from the hotel to the dinner for those interested. To register for the user’s meeting, please email AgWare and let us know the names of all attendees in your party. To register for the ASFMRA chapter dinner you need to add the Welcome Dinner option to your Agri-Nomics Registration.

AgWare will also be offering a free “Back to the Basics” seven hour training course at the ASFMRA National Meeting in San Antonio. This course will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2015 from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Uvalde AB room. Back to Basics is a beginner-level course that provides the participant with introductory concepts, basic skills experiences, and the opportunity to build confidence in using AgWare agricultural appraisal software to create UAAR format reports. Each user needs to bring their laptop to the course with AgWare DataLog and AgWare ClickForms installed. ASFMRA is handling all registration for the Back to Basics class. Please visit the ASFMRA website to register for the class, or for more information on the Agri-Nomics meeting.
