Ascendis Caller ID beta version now available

Post by Bill Root »

This version can coexist with version 3, with the following caveats:

We don't recommend running Ascendis Caller ID version 3 and version 4 at the same time. Besides the obvious confusion, in many cases only one program can access the modem or Whozz Calling? device at once.
If you later decide to uninstall Ascendis Caller ID version 3, don't delete the data. You will be prompted during uninstall whether to keep or delete the data. If you delete the data, it will delete the data for all versions of Ascendis Caller ID. This does not happen with the version 4 uninstaller, but it's better to be safe and never delete the data, or back it up first. The data is normally stored in C:\ProgramData\Ascendis Software\Ascendis Caller ID.

In spite of the caveats, it makes sense to keep version 3 around while trying out version 4, but you probably won't be able to run both of them at the same time. The version 4 installer disables version 3 autolaunch.

Version 4 will offer to copy the data and settings from version 3 when first launched, if version 3 is installed.

Version includes the following changes from the previous beta release:
  • Use locations table info in addition to contact location (prefer contact location fields but use locations table field when contact field is empty)
  • Added junk button and context menu items (Calls and Calls Report). These support junking by number and by name when appropriate. To access junking by name from the junk button, right-click it. Note that common CID names like "Out of Area", "Private", etc cannot be junked by name this way.
  • Fixed strangeness with status bar right-click menu
  • Use flat toolbar icons

As always, bug reports and feedback are appreciated.
