ConferenceXP 4.0 beta now available for download! RRS feed

  • Question

  • All four ConferenceXP 4.0 beta components (client, venue service, archive service and reflector service) are now available from the downloads page.  Source code will be available there shortly as well.

    A few notes on this beta release:

    • ConferenceXP 4.0 beta and 3.5 do not interoperate and we’ve set up a venue server specifically for 4.0 testing (pre-populated in the 4.0 client).
    • It is recommended that you do not install Windows Media Player 11 beta at this time.  There is a bug in the way WMP installs Windows Media 9 codecs (this is fixed in a later release and will also be in the final release) that causes video configuration problems with ConferenceXP.
    • If you are involved in the Office 2007 beta, we’d be interested in any issues you may run into with regard to either PowerPoint 2007 or OneNote 2007 and ConferenceXP.  This release supports PowerPoint2007 pptx files.
    • This release includes improved support for USB microphones - please let us know if you run into any problems with the Phoenix Duet or other USB speakerphone systems.

    As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated!

  • Thanks Alberto and yes, there are known problems with the current builds of Windows Vista.  We will be looking at this a little later in the year.

  • Hi Martin,

    We do not have any SIP capabilities.

    No, our RTP stack is not completely conformant to the RFC.

    As soon as we release RTM, which should be Real Soon Now (tm).

  • Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to post this, I recently downloaded the Beta 4.0 version of your ConferenceXP Client, and installed it, when I tryed to join a Venue the programed thowed an Exception (access violation error actually), my platform is Windows Vista build 5384 so I believe that this situacion has something to do with the Vista platform, but since I read that you were interested in feed back about office 2007 I thought that maybe the Vista feedback would be of some interest and use for you.

    If you want I could post or send a full stack trace of the exception.

    thanks again and I'll keep checking for the release of the 4.0 vesion.

    I do certainly know,  you are THE ONE...   (Who can help us)...

  • Hi,

    we are currently developing a video conferencing system which shall support SIP. ConferenceXP seems to be a choice as underlying SDK. But there are still some open questions about version 4 left.

    Which SIP capabilities will this version support? Is the rtp stack completely conform with RFC? And finally which date is probable for the release of the source files?

    Thanks,

    Martin

  • Hi, I tried to uninstall Conference XP 3.5 in order to install 4.0 -  and 3.5 failed to uninstall, saying an exception occured while uninstalling.  Object reference not set to an instance of an object.  I think this is now affecting my PC sound as since this error my sound card, despite repeated reinstallations - doesn't work.  Can you advise

  • Hi Todd, I recently got a little time to get back and take a look at the conferenceXP 4.0 issue I commented before, as it turns out its the UAC (User Access Control) that generates this error, I runned the client with administrator priviledges and its running perfectly, I managed to connect to my Venue Service, so, so far its working perfectly.

    just thought I post this to see if it was of any usefullnes.

    greetings, and I look forward to the release of the 4.0 client :D, we have great plans for it in our Institution.

  • I would try a repair of ConferenceXP followed by an uninstall.  There is no relationship that I am aware of in which ConferenceXP could affect your sound card.
