Known issue: Receiving files fails if destination folder contains data with the same name

We need to inform our users that both Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer clients have an issue with receiving files. Reception of files brings an error on decompression step if destination folder already contains files/directories with the same name. We will fix this problem in the nearest versions of the messaging clients. At this moment we advise to use settings in the IM clients that allow to create new subfolders in destination folder that include sender's name and/or current date.

Bopup IM Server fixes check for user's permissions to exchange instant messages and files

We released a new version of Bopup Communication Server that fixes an issue with user's permissions to send messages and files. Version 4.3.9 now verifies each time when a user sends an instant message that message's recipient is available according to user's Organizational Unit permissions. This works well when a user organizes his contacts and unavailable accounts aren't shown in the wizard and cannot be added into Contact List in the messenger client. But the issue occurred only when a message is received from unavailable user and he is added into Not In Contacts list. In this case the users gets the right to reply back to that the sender and the communication server does not check the permissions. Now this issues is resolved.

Useful fix in Bopup Messenger version 6.4.1

We updated the messenger client and it's version 6.4.1 is available for download. This update is for prior version 6.4 that added a lot of improvements and additions. Since we change a format of messages in conversation this version fixes an issue with formatting font and color both of incoming and outgoing messages. If you noticed that first letter of each message in conversation does not apply for required text font and color then it is strongly required to upgrade it to the latest version.

Major updates of the IM client applications

Great updates of the instant messenger software are available! We released Bopup Messenger version 6.4 and Bopup Observer 5.4 which come with a huge number of changes, bug fixes and improvements.

What's new:

Great changes applied to displaying conversations 
Many improvements and additions occurred in formatting conversation dialogs. We changed colors both for sender's and recipient's titles that include name and time. Blue and red colors have been removed and we started to use neutral gray color to mark headers.

Now each single message in the conversation is separated with an empty string that allows to easily find a recent message among others.

In addition if offline or message to multiple users is sent then that notification text is shown using small font with italic style applied. When offline message is received then appropriate notification is appended to the end of the message in the similar format instead of beginning of message.

File Transfers become visible in conversations too
Another great addition is about incoming and outgoing file transfers that are shown in conversation within instant messages. Information on completed transfers is also instantly shown in conversations.

Empty break lines are removed from messages
The latest version of the messenger client now checks and removes empty strings from the end of messages. This is a useful update that applies to a friendly look of conversations.

Message History dialog fixed issue with invalid symbols shows between selected conversations
Another weird issue was displaying "strange" symbols in Message History if one or multiple items have been selected in the result list. We found out what happened and resolved that error.

OverwrittenAccount option is never ignored even the IM server requires Windows Authentication
Both IM clients support a feature that makes possible to override current account in Windows that would be used by application. That can be done using OverwrittenAccount value under application root in the registry. This tricky option allows to connect to the communication server using different user name but when the IM server requires Windows Authentication then the overwritten account is reverted back to current user ID. The latest versions of the instant messaging clients fix this issue.

Minor update of the Android app

A minor update of Bopup Messenger for Android platform is released and it's version 1.0.6 beta is available. This release added support for notification when the communication server interrupts the established connection if another user enters to the IM network from Windows PC or Android device using the same account name. In that case the messenger app disconnects from the IM server and shows an appropriate message event.

Bopup IM Client SDK now supports File Transfer

We are glad to announce that our IM Client SDK added support to exchange files with other users through the communication server. This function is available now only in IServerClient interface that is intended for use by C/C++ developers but both IServerClientVB and IServerClientVBA will implement the file transfer feature soon.

In addition to the new version 1.1.0 of the SDK we released an update of Bopup Communication Server that properly recognizes and adds support to send and receive files from the applications builton the client SDK. So we recommend to update the server first to the recent version in order to be able to start using the file transfer functions from the IM library.

Prevent exceeding concurrent connections when a connected user enters to the IM from another place

Sometimes users may forget to log out or close the messenger client when they go to another PC and log to the instant messaging network again from the new location. Of course concurrent users are supported but at the same time this will increase the amount of overall users in the IM system and as result may exceed the number of concurrent users supported by the server license.

New version 4.3.7 of Bopup Communication Server added function to disconnect current connected user when he enters to the IM system from another computer/device. To enable this and log out a previously connected messenger use option called "Automatically close existing session on a new connection" that is on the Authentication tab of the Options dialog box.


It is highly required to update the messaging client too in order correctly recognize occurred disconnect because prior versions of the messengers would try to reconnect to the communication server that would cause issues.

The IM server improves the install of built-in MS SQL Server 2008

Version 4.3.6 improves installation of built-in MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Express that is intended for install on latest versions of Windows including 8, 8.1 and 2012.
