Advisory Notes on MediaSeal Release

 

Encryptor upgrade path on Windows (3.7.0 onward):

 

To upgrade the Encryptor client from any previous version, please first uninstall the previous version of Encryptor. This can be done using Windows “Add or Remove Programs”.

 

Detection mode changing on macOS:

 

Changing detection mode on macOS requires system reboot for it to take effect.

 

Displaying MediaSeal badges for encrypted files on macOS:

 

Finder displays MediaSeal badges for encrypted assets only for files under the user home directory.

 

PACE exception during Encryptor installation on macOS(3.5.8.36 onwards):

 

Occasionally, when installing Encryptor application on macOS while DecryptorTray is running, User might experience a notification dialog as below:






This does not mean there are any installation issues and is caused by system services being restarted.  After Encryptor installation process, User will be prompted for system restart, after which all applications will run correctly.

 

Encryptor folder naming:

 

A change to the naming system can mean folder encryptions will have just “enc_” as the output folder. An Encryptor Admin User would need to add "[filefoldername]" within the filename pattern to preserve the same output naming conventions as previous versions of MediaSeal.

 

No file authorization dialog for MediaSeal files:

 

With the introduction of Fast Detect Mode, older MediaSeal files created with versions less than 3.5.6 will only be detected when the system is set to Compatibility Mode.  Fast Detect Mode is the default option for installations and upgrades.
