Changes in product:
  • For RDP and ICA trails, you can select a keyboard layout depending on the language used in the trail and recreate the subtitle of the trail.

    For more information, see Replay audit trails.

  • The installation of the Safeguard Desktop Player on Windows has been improved. You no longer need elevated privileges to install the Safeguard Desktop Player, and for future versions, you can install the new version without first having to uninstall the previous version.
