FIX: Brooktrout Update Utility installs the wrong version of the Brooktrout System Software



ID: ZTN1589

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax Server v2007


When upgrading from a previous version of Zetafax to v2007, BTUpdateUtility.exe (the Brooktrout Upgrade program) installs the incorrect version of the Brooktrout System Software.  This results in an SDK/driver version mismatch, preventing the Zetafax Brooktrout Initialisation program and the Brooktrout Configuration Tool from working correctly.


The problems described above are resolved via a patch.

This fix can be downloaded from the Zetafax Server update service by selecting Help > Check for Updates. from the Zetafax Server Monitor program.

Once installed on the server, each you should re-run BTUpdateUtility.exe which is located in the following folder:

< Zetafax Server install folder> \SERVER\

This behaviour was corrected in the update.
