Active Roles 7 will work with Quick Connect Sync Engine 5.4.1 if they are both installed on the same machine. Active Roles must be installed 1st then install Quick Connect Sync Engine 5.4.1 afterwards.
For example, if Quick Connect is already installed 1st along with Active Roles 6.8 MMC prior to installing Active Roles 7, then you will need to perform the following steps:
1. Uninstall the ARS 6.8 console
2. Uninstall the Visual C++ 2012 redistributables
3. Install the Active Roles 7 console
4. Repair the installation of Quick Connect
Performing these steps will register the Quick Connect installation with the Active Roles 7 console. Now, Quick Connect will work with Active Roles 7, but will not work with ARS 6.x and will also will work remotely.
