Mac OS users please note that we are having a known issue with the offline help documentation launching directly from the application. Rest assured that the help reference manual is getting installed as part of the application and you can get to it through the finder application (/Library/Application Support/nl.qps/Fledermaus/Manuals).
User please be aware that here is an issue with the QPS blue dongles for users running the application in Mac OS 10.11 or higher or Linux. This is known issue with the dongle manufacturer and continue to work to find a solution.
Please refer to the information related to the Fledermaus Platform Overview to make sure you can run our applications. If you have a blue dongle and plan to upgrade to use a Linux based operating system and/or a MacOS version that is higher than MacOS 10.11. contact us for alternative licensing options that we could explore for you.
Fledermaus 7.5 (and newer) uses a new version of the QPD format that is incompatible with the previous releases of Fledermaus (7.4.5.b and older), Qimera (1.0.7 and older), and QINSy (older than 2015.11.28.1) software. Opening an older QPD file in Fledermaus 7.5 (or newer) will upgrade it to the new version, making the QPD unusable in older versions of the noted QPS applications. If this will break your current workflow, and you can not upgrade the newer versions of Qimera and QINSy, we do not advise upgrading to Fledermaus 7.5 (or newer) at this time.
The new version of the QPD format is compatible with the current and future versions of Qimera (1.1 and newer), Fledermaus (7.5.0 and newer), and QINSy (2015.11.28.1 and newer).
Fledermaus 7.7 requires an active Support & Maintenance agreement to run the software. If you are using a license with expired Annual Maintenance, you will not be able to run the newest version of Fledermaus.
