YEAH! It fixed the Fast Search templates location. Now all my properties can be indexed!
Already I have two issues that are problems with this maintenence pack. The very first 2 things I attempted to do. I immediately filed an IR for the first, but I don't have time to do so with the second.
Thanks. No worries for me with those two. Let's hope there are no others.
Wow, that's alot of issues fixed.
But being able to drag and drop from windows is a big one for me. I do everything that way. My design environment is too fluid for anything else.
I will have to hold off until I have enough time to uninstall if there are problems. Fast projects the next few weeks.
I just tested drag'n'drop from Windows Explorer and it seems it works fine.
Tested on 2 machines with ST9MP5 and Win10.
Can somebody check this on Win7?
