Would you like to help us test a pre-release “BETA” version of DataLink 4? This version will have the latest features, but has not been fully tested.
What is BETA software?
Before we release software for everyone to use, we first test the software in-house here at JBS. This is called “Alpha” testing. We then ask customers to test the software to find problems that we didn't find. This is called “Beta” testing. Finally, we release the software to the public. This is called a “Full Release”, as is available here on the DataLink Install page.
If you would like to help us test the next release of DataLink you can install it from our website. DataLink needs several components provided by Microsoft. If you do not already have these components, the setup program will download and install them automatically. This method uses Microsoft’s Click-Once deployment technology and allows automatic updates from our website.
January 2018 Note:
Thank you BETA Testers! We are currently “all caught up”. There is no BETA DataLink software, version 4.2.x is in Full Release. Your software should be updated to the Full Release version.
When asked if you want to Run or Save the “setup.exe” file, select Run (or save the file and then run it).
The following prerequisites are required:
Note that the help files in the beta version may not be complete.
A beta tester's responsibilities include communicating with JBS whenever you have a question about how the AquaCalc works or if something isn't working like you expect it to. This helps us improve the user experience. Don't be shy, tell us what’s wrong and tell us what you want.
