#2 line item... Does this mean the indoor position system is on its way?
Right around the corner! *finally*
nice, indoor positioning will be popular.
I was able to run on one computer ok, other will not load. Tried repair, tried rebooting, tire remove and good. How do I get back to last version or what is it. Both computers WIN 10 boxes with 64 bit systems. Never had a issue with either machine before always came right up.
Here are the application error events:

Awesome. Can't wait to see what the custom camera tracking controls are like.
Thanks for the update.
Just updated to Release 2018.11.05.00. Having the same problem now as "jackphillips1953" - ARC does not load. My laptop is Win10, version 1803, build 17134.376.
Can you provide the previous version please? Teaching a class tomorrow (Wednesday) and without a running version of ARC I am screwed.
That’s really strange. Anyone else having issues?

I would recommend uninstalling, rebooting and reinstalling. Have you tried that?
Hi DJ. Tried that. Same result, ARC does not launch.
Hmmmm okay let me figure this out.

Are you an administrator account during installation?

Any virus scanner warnings during install?
Please try this...

1) uninstall ARC

2) navigate in explorer to c:\Program Files (x86)

3) Delete the folder named EZ-Robot Inc

4) install ARC
Yes, admin. No warnings, the installation completed without hiccups. Luckily I didn't upgrade any of the student laptops - so I guess I just have to use one of theirs.
The previous installation can't be used because the code signing certificate expired in October. This is a new code signing certificate - but that's only for the installer and has no effect on the application. Can you follow my instructions above and let me know if it helps?
After the uninstall there is no longer a folder c:\Program Files (x86)/EZ-Robot Inc

I'm building another installer for you. It'll take 15 minutes. I'll be back to tell you when it's ready for you to download
Okay - re-download ARC from this website and install. I recommend uninstalling and erasing the previous downloaded copies so they don't accidentally get installed.

Please let me know the result
It WORKED ! :o) Wow, thank you very much !
You're welcome - thanks for your patience. The issue was with the CEF update. It seems there is a bug with the latest Chromium Embedded Framework. I restored the previous CEF version from nuget. It was a shot in the dark, which I guessed at with the error posted on the previous page about Blockly. Because Blockly in ARC is the only thing that uses CEF... and the CEF was the only thing changed for Blockly in this build.
Fixed... Thank you.

Is it possible that you start charging filename to version number so that it is easier for us to archive and go back to another version quickly. having same name all the time makes it difficult to roll back.
Just loaded on another PC this morning... This one throws an error from program.

Her is what it states.

Version: 2018.11.06.00

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'CefSharp.Core.dll' or one of its dependencies. The specified module could not be found.

Working fine prior.

It seems these errors this week are related to blocky. Should I just blow off the blocky install?
I don’t understand the question - what does blow off the Blockly install mean?

I recommend uninstall, delete ezrobot folder, reboot, and install the latest download.

The error you have received is a simple one. The file is actually missing somehow. That’s isolated to your computer and can be resolved by the steps above.
Fixed thanks. I meant was not install blocky. I saw customization and thought that was a feature. Never actually looked at it before. I guess its all or nothing.
No big deal.
