When starting ISL Light under Administrator account it will no longer ask for administrator credentials to run the application. Users will be asked for administrator credentials if they start streaming their desktop and the user account that was used for running ISL Light is in a group of administrators. Users will also be asked for administrator credentials when starting admin mode and user account for starting ISL Light was not a part of administrators.

Restart and resume procedure could take a longer time due to trying to resolve the address when enabling it. The new feature uses already resolved IP address of server when reconnecting thus reducing time to reconnect.

Defect fixes

ISL Light - Desktop Win - cursor is black and not visible [ISLLIGHT-425] More


When viewing remote desktop in some cases the mouse cursor was black. One issue was that the cursor did not have alpha channel and was seen as black dot on the viewing windows. Another issue was for users using Windows 8 and they did not have physically connected mouse to the computer. Streaming mouse procedure was redesigned, in first case alpha channel was added and in the second case ISL cursor is streamed to remote desktop.

The defect was fixed.
