1) Added functionality to assist the install of SimplyPats on a Mac running Boot Camp.

2) When printing the V2 Current Appliance report which shows a Certificate Number, you were not prompted for the Certificate Number to be incremented. This has now been added.

3) Added additional technical support for when SimplyPats has been installed under one user account and is trying to be run from a different user account. (Licencing Error Code 3)

4) Tested Under Windows 10 Build 10240 through to Build 10586

5) Amended the Import Descriptions screen to remove any blank spaces in the appliance description field of destination data file so that like an empty field they are overwritten with the descriptions being imported.

6) Added support for the latest firmware Australian / New Zealand version 2.25 of the Metrel SigmaPat MI3310 which has had an amendment to the out of range continuity results sent.

7) Added a new sort order on the Print Reports screen Appliance Id (Converted Numeric). If this sort order is selected, Appliance Id's that contain preceding letters e.g. ABC005090 will be converted into a hidden column of numbers e.g. 5090 and sorted by that column. The full alpha numeric appliance id will be shown on reports. Note. This sort order cannot cater for situations where words are in the middle 123ABC5090 or at the end 5090ABC of the appliance id.

8) Added a check when invoicing to warn if not all appliances have charge codes.

9) Amended the Megger Pat 410, 420 and 450 download routine to cater for the Visual Check where NO individual visual item has failed but the tester records an overall fail status.

10) Added a new setting in the Print Setup of certificates to allow modification of a DPI settting for the certiciate images. On computers where the display DPI settings are set over 100 percent, the certificate image is incorrectly displayed on the certificate reports.

11) Amended the download routine for the original Seaward Europa / Supernova firmware to prompt user to decide whether a load test has passed where the Load value is in excess of 3KW but the Pat Tester data states that the test is passed overall.

12) Updated download for Metrel GammaPat MI3311 to solve conflict on Windows 10 with Metrel USB drivers and the communications control used in SimplyPats. This caused SimplyPats not receive data from the GammaPat.

13) Added a feature to log Manual Entry tests as they are added. In the event of a PC Crash, Windows Restart etc where you haven't saved your SimplyPats data file, it is possible by contacting support to recover your manually entered test data.

14) Amended Download Screen and Help files to reflect addition of Seaward Apollo 400.


1) If a non numeric entry was input on the RCD results screen in the 180 degree phase result an error was generated. The 180 degree phase result is now check to ensure it is numeric.

2) Amended code for downloading Apollo 600 / Apollo 500 to cater for errors caused where there were in excess of 6 continuity and 6 polarity results on a single appliance.

3) Added a trap to ensure a test result status is set to either Pass or Fail when a Microwave or RCD result was manually entered.

4) When emailing a PDF of an invoice, the email address was set to the Customers email. This has now been changed to use the Invoicee's email address if one exists.

5) When using the Print Sequence to PDF feature in SimplyPats errors in creating the pdf were caused if the customer Name contained banned file name characters e.g. : * / \ ? etc. This has now been fixed.
