  2. Download the .EXE file from the link below.
  3. Once downloaded, double click to run the program.
  4. The program will execute and install itself.
  5. When finished you can start Mediator.
  6. Verify it has updated: Select Help|About from the main menu.
    The build number must be 180 or 181 if the service pack is applied successfully.

Service Pack 5:

Fixed Issues:

  • The Open Doc action no longer causes Mediator to freeze when you switch between 2 projects in Test mode with Mediator Designer.
  • Animating a polygon object while moving the mouse in/out of the object no longer causes Mediator to freeze.
  • Transparent and rotated pictures no longer cause Mediator to freeze in some situations when only parts of the object are drawn.
  • Picture Object: The Mouse Up event is now always triggered even if the mouse pointer is no longer inside the object.
  • The File Open dialog no longer causes Mediator to freeze when the list of recent files refers to a removable drive which does not contain any support. This applies to all File Open dialogs including the Picture and Video Open File dialogs.
  • A number of other issues have been fixed.
