Known issue: An attempt to create a backup file gives SQL error #5

Many our users faced with an error on creation of a backup file from SQL database maintenance... dialog in Management Console. Once destination folder has been selected the console brings "Cannot open backup device. Operating System error 5" and no backup file is created.

This is a known issue of the IM server application but it does not relate to any error. Since backup files are created by Microsoft SQL Server directly then an account under which database service is running may not have appropriate write permission to chosen folder. Usually this error can occur when a target directory that has been chosen to save a backup file is located in current user's profile folder such as "My Documents", "Desktop", etc. In case of the error try to choose another location to create and save backup file.

We also updated and appended with this information our FAQ section available on the website that contains details on how to Create and restore backups of Bopup Communication Server.

Bopup Messenger version 6.8.2 is available

We built new version of the messenger client that includes few very useful updates. Version 6.8.2 instantly updates contacts' presence status in all opened conversation windows.

Another change belongs to recipient's presence status shown on a color background within user's name. Now the IM client displays appropriate status icon if a user is in away or offline mode. In these case the recipient name also added Away or Offline substring on the end. That is useful and lets see recipient's current presence status if Contact List is not hidden in conversations.

Recent updates of Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer

Today we updated our messenger and observer clients and released their new versions. Bopup Messenger has been updated to version 6.8.1 and it comes with the following important fixes and improvements.

What's new:

Settings for receipt of personal and broadcast messages added separate options to show conversation dialogs on a top but in inactive state

The messenger moved "Show window as inactive" check box on "Receiving messages" tab of the Options dialog box to Receiving personal messages section and added same option to Receiving group & News messages.

Receiving messages tab added separate options to show conversation in inactive state

This is because most of our customers do not use "Today's Messages" tab in the main window so option to show it as inactive was unnecessary. Since new and received messages are shown in a conversation dialog so now it is possible to bring it on top on message receipt but keep focus on currently active application.

Fixed switching to Away mode when other users did not see user's updated presence status

We discovered that sometimes users were not update to see others in away even remote messenger reported that it is in the away mode. That was a client bug that we fixed.

Fixed issues with pop up of conversations on receipt of new messages

Another fix is related to showing conversation windows on a top of Desktop. Sometimes this could work, sometime could not.

In addition to many changes and improvements we made in the software it comes with all-new Confirmation feature that delivers a confirmed status back to a sender. Confirmed status is also logged in a local Message History and on the communication server and those confirmed messages are shown with double-check icon.

Currently Confirmation functionality is fully supported by Bopup Observer client only and can be enabled from the Options on the IM server. But we plan to extend this function in order to allow to send outgoing messages with confirmation status like urgent and high-priority messages.

Goodbye, HostGator!

We would like to apologize to customers and visitors for the difficulties with accessing our websites in the past few days. We need to inform that we had issues with our hosting provider, it is well-known HostGator company, whose services we used for more than 8 years! But everything is changed and that's true about about our opinion on HostGator too.

Around one week ago we noticed that most of our sites stopped working. Everything was looking strange because some customers from the US were able to visit www.bopup.com and download installation packages with no any issues at the same time when we were having problems. Some third-party resources on the Web also told us that there were big troubles with accessing to the websites because most of them could be even pinged!

HostGator support team could not see the problem and did not help us, they only asked to change Name Server (NS) even some of our other websites already had those servers configured correctly. Anyway we decided to change our web-hosting provider to avoid any possible issues to our customers and new clients because that's all about the business. You will not believe but HostGator support is still working on the problem and keeping the case still opened! For 7 days!

Now we successfully migrated to a new provider by moving all websites and databases including our regional sites such as www.bopup.de, www.bopup.es, www.bopup.ru Only Italian version www.bopup.it does not still operate due to update of old Name Servers on registrar. Our new configuration works better and faster now.

We released Android app version 1.0.12

New update of Bopup Messenger for Android platform is available, it is version 1.0.12. This release added a useful improvement that now shows a small notification icon within contact that indicates a receipt of new (unread) messages. Previous versions of the messenger application had no that indicator so new incoming messages could be only discovered on "Messages" tab that contains all received messages for current session. We strongly recommend to update the application to work with it with more ease and convenience.
