Species Dictionary Update and Add-ins Updates for Recorder-6 - 13/08/2009:

Species Dictionary Updates Information:

The NHM Species Dictionary has been updated and the latest upgrade for use with Recorder-6 is available to download with the the new Dictionary Upgrade Kit (V3) from the Recorder website at http://forums.nbn.org.uk/recorderWebsite/dictionaryUpgrades.htm

The new Dictionary upgrade kit V3 has been updated to include a permissions fix for use with MS Vista - this relates to the automatic request for elevation to the Admin account (if UAC is turned on). If the name of the program contains the word ‘setup’, then Vista automatically requests elevation for the program. As this is not the case for the DictionaryUpgrade.exe a ‘manifest’ has been added to indicate to Vista what to do.

The species dictionary upgrades 0000000G.sql, 0000000H.zip and 0000000I.sql include:

Tidying up of the Nameserver table and changes to the following checklists:
