    LimagitoX2 (v12) File Mover Released

    Dear users,

    LimagitoX2 Filemover is available in the download section of www.limagito.com

    The License Key of version X or XI will no longer work on this new version. Corporate license holders can request their License key for version X2.

    Some things to keep in mind when upgrading to version X2.

    • Previous versions (X, XI) and X2 use the same settings database. Create a backup of your settings first!
    • You don’t need to uninstall the previous version. Both can be installed at the same time. Each version uses a different install folder (no need to change this).
    • Do not run multiple versions at the same time because both would interfere with each other.
    • The major change in version X2 is the full remote GUI for Service and Application. No need to restart the service after every change in setup.
    • Some options are no longer available (FTP Server, User Mode).

     

    Please Read:

     

    As always, feedback would be much appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Limagito Team
