SuperOffice MailLink (part of SuperOffice WebTools) supports 2 main modes of operation:
- Against a Web installation
- Against a Windows installation
The picture was different before 8.3:
One version of WebTools should now be compatible with all versions of SuperOffice: Online, Onsite Web, (future releases of) Onsite Windows.
MailLink (and WebTools) will only exist in one version: The latest version.
In older WebTools versions (before 8.3), MailLink shipped with its own copy of NetServer and ran its own database layer directly. In this case, if you have a SuperOffice Windows installation and download the latest WebTools from the SuperOffice Download Service, you may end up in a situation where your MailLink runs a newer version of NetServer and expects a different database schema than the one you have.
The Windows client installer will also install one extra file into the client folder: SuperOffice.MailLink.WinClient.dll. This file must be present for this new MailLink to enable "Windows mode" (which means it will not work with older versions of the Windows client). If this file is not found, only web support is available.
How to install only MailLink part of WebTools
MailLink is now a separate downloadable installer (the latest version) available on the Download Service so customers wishing to upgrade only MailLink can do so.
