Post subject: FirstSpot v8.1.101 (or newer) version history

v8.1.101 - July 21, 2017
- Add support for UEFI with Secure Boot on (for Windows 10 version 1607 and Windows Server 2016)
- enforce new live update version policy during startup. Customer now needs a valid maintenance in order to entitle to the new version
- add new Login Option "Email Login"
- fix a PSNAT bluescreen stability problem (related corrupted header in UDP packet or incorrect UDP packet size)
- streamline the setup so that it will have less command prompt popup now
- in a rare case, setup won't uninstall the driver completely under network properties. Improve the driver uninstall routine so that it is more robust
- "Live Update" will give out "Please start live update as xxx in FirstSpot machine" even though it is only case mismatch in the username. The comparison is now case-insensitive
- "Live Update" will now work even if the FirstSpot is installed through Windows Remote Desktop session
- fixed a FirstSpotCore.exe crash problem (Fault offset: 0x001159f6 for v8.1.10 - v8.1.11, or Fault offset: 0x00115946 for v8.1.7 - v8.1.9), when repeatedly running resetABW.exe or QueryPassiveLogin.exe when FirstSpot has a large number of Passive Login and/or Login Once users.

v8.1.102 - September 5, 2017
- fix "The installed product does not match the installation source(s)" error when using setup hotfix feature. The workaround is to keep FirstSpot setup files in the original directory when the last time FirstSpot setup is run

v8.1.107 - October 29, 2018
- fix Internet connection problem with PSNAT driver.

One can manually fix this by stopping FirstSpot, disable and enable the Internet Network Interface card again.

v8.1.108 - November 12, 2018
