Our licensing system has (like all other components in Geocap8) received an upgrade. This means that your existing license file for v7.2 or older will not work with the new release. Email Geocap Support at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your new license.
After installation, but before you start Geocap8 for the first time, you need to run the Initialize 8.0 app for license initialization.
Use Windows' taskbar search to locate Initialize 8.0. Right-click and select Run as administrator.
So, what else is new?
Large datasets: By using VTK with 64-bit addressing the ability to read and store large datasets has been greatly improved in Geocap8-64.
ArcGIS datalink: Geocap8-32 can be connected to any version of ArcGIS 10.0 through 10.8.
User interface: Upgrading Qt improves handling of high resolution monitors. A dual-screen setup with different screen resolutions should no longer be a problem.
If needed, modify dpi awareness in file bin/qt.conf in the Geocap installation directory:
WindowsArguments = dpiawareness=0, 1, or 2.
Project compatibility: Projects stored in version 7 loads directly in Geocap8. We do not recommend loading Geocap8 projects back into v7.2. If you plan to use both versions, best practice is to back up your projects before loading.
