Operating Systems No Longer Supported

As of January 14, 2020, Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 have reached end-of-life. Microsoft no longer supports these OSes. As such, OSSI no longer supports these operating systems. While our software will continue to install and upgrade on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, we will not provide technical support for these systems for versions beyond Intelli-Site v4.0.45.12.  All customers and integrators are strongly encouraged to migrate to Windows 10 or Windows 2016. 


This article contains the release notes for Intelli-Site v4.1.2.4.  The following sections describe the release in detail and provide late-breaking or other information that supplements the main documentation.

This is a maintenace release that improves quality, reliability, and performace. All Users are encouraged to upgrade to this release.

Upgrade Requirements 

Because the database has been redesigned, the installer will only upgrade version or later. Minor modifications to the database had been implemented before version Those modifications must be applied to the existing database for the software upgrade to properly upgrade the database. 

The process is:

  1. Upgrade to version
  2. Open the Configuration Utility and start the Engine. The Engine performs the necessary modifications, not the installer. If there are multiple projects, each project must be started.
  3. Stop the Engine and close the Configuration Utility.
  4. Upgrade to the current version.
  5. Open the Configuration Utility and start the Engine. As stated in step 2, the Engine performs the necessary database upgrade not the installer. If there are multiple projects, each project must be started as well.


The following software features were added:

  • Reports have been optimized for speed.
    • The report display is no longer in print preview mode by default. The formatting of large reports takes a noticeable length of time. The report toolbar does have the print preview button if you want to see it.
    • Much of the data filtering has been offloaded to the database.

The following Panels were added or upgraded:

  • NEW! Vicon Valerus VMS
    • Before installing Intelli-Site, the Valerus Media Player must be installed. There is a conflict with postgreSQL if the Media Player is installed after Intelli-Site. If your site is an upgrade and needs Vicon Valerus, tech support can help you fix the conflict.
    • After installing the Vicon Valerus driver either as a new install or a modify install, the Valerus Media Player ActiveX control must be registered. A file, RegisterViconValerusActiveX.cmd, was installed with the driver to do just that. Go to  the DriversViconValerus folder. Right-click on the file and select "Run as administrator". 
  • NEW! Vicon Valerus VMS Panel Guide


The following issues affecting all products have been resolved:

  • Configuration Utility
    • Note: Do not start the Client Manager unless you absolutely need it. Only start it when redundant Engines are required and licensed. The Client Manager counts as a client in the license.
    • This isn't new. It just bears repeating.
  • Desktop Client
    • Reports View
      • Report Parameters fields that are date/time or boolean (y/n) fields are no longer text fields. That means defining a date/time parameter uses a date/time style selector. Y/N fields become check boxes when editing. Checked is Y, clear is N.
      • The wildcard character is now "%" instead of "*".
      • The Personnel Detail Report is not blank anymore.
    • RFID Management View
      • Deleting a Zone won't cause an unhandled exception when deleted very quickly after adding them. Not something anyone but QA would actually do, but QA has to earn their money too.
      • An unauthorized alarm will not be triggered by a tag that has no zones assigned that is not designated an asset. It is considered to be mobile and allowed in every zone. Assets must be assigned to zones. Assets should not be mobile on their own by definition.

The following issues specific to Intelli-Site Lite have been resolved:

  • N/A

Below are issues related to specific OEM versions:

  • N/A


For Projects using MSSQL as the database provider, the Last Time field in RFID Management View is off +6 hours.

Tag Activity is not "Live". A screen refresh is needed to force an update. Selecting a different tag and then coming back to the target tag is sufficient to cause a load of the data.
