1.2 Software Fixes

An Alert Pops Up when a User Alternates between a Smart Card and Password Login for Authentication

When a user alternates between a Smart card and password login for authentication, the following warning message is displayed:

“Your Cache files have lost synchronization with your directory authentication data. Would you like to delete your cache files and have them re-created?”

You can avoid the alert by configuring the HideCacheReSyncAlert registry key in HKLM\SOFTWARE\\Protocom\\SecureLogin. Set the value to 1 to hide the alert. (BUG 791324)

NOTE:By suppressing the warning message, the user understands that the cache file is automatically recreated, and any offline changes to the SSO data of the user are lost after resynchronization.

SecureLogin does an LDAP Search even when the Full DN is Provided during Login causing a Delay in Launching SecureLogin

Delay in launching SecureLogin is now resolved. (BUG 792257)

When Logging In to a Windows 7 Workstation you can Select the Domain only from the Drop-down List Limiting the Option to Connect to Other Domains

SecureLogin Credential Provider now supports logging in to multiple domains and does not limit to the domain the workstation is currently connected to.(BUG 773940)

SecureLogin Does not Detect the Active Directory Password Changed through Citrix

When you update your credentials through Citrix and launch a published application, the login is processed without the password change information. SecureLogin unlocks similar to when an Administrator changes the password, but fails to display the updated credentials when queried in an application script using ?syspassword. SecureLogin now shows the updated ?syspassword and loads these updated credentials at the startup.(BUG 788650)

When WebSSO DHTML is Enabled in Internet Explorer some Web Pages may Cause Internet Explorer to Hang

This issue is now resolved. Capturing of event through MSAA (page change, modal popup) which is performed at creation is delayed until the change is shown (BUG 795280)

The Administration Tools Displayed the Administrators Policies as RSOP was not Generated for ADAM Mode

Administrators can now also view the resultant GPO for other objects in ADAM mode, using administration tools like, SLManager or MMC. (BUG 719814)

The Latest Version of SSManger.exe is not Available with the Installer

SSManager.exe can now be downloaded from the Novell Download Site. For more information see, TID 7011696. (BUG 559185)

In German Locale the Strings in the SecureLogin Menus and the Passphrase Message Prompt are Displayed in English

To resolve this issue, you have to update the appropriate localization file manually when upgrading a non-english version of SecureLogin to SecureLogin 7.0.3 HF4. To update the non-english version of the localization file:

  1. Copy the appropriate language of localhero.dll file from the localization folder. This is in the same directory location as the patch file (.msp).

  2. Replace this localhero.dll file with the localhero.dll file in the SecureLogin installation folder.

    NOTE:For a 64-bit version, the file name is localhero64.dll.

User is Prompted with a Passphrase Question in English when Switching between Machines where SecureLogin is Installed in Different Locales even if the Passphrase is set to Hidden

This issue is now resolved. For the fix details, see In German Locale the Strings in the SecureLogin Menus and the Passphrase Message Prompt are Displayed in English.
