SHOTPlus Tunnel Release Notes V


SHOTPlus Tunnel Development Update

An installation release was made available for SHOTPlus T (All Versions) on 20 February 2018.

To remain compatible with future Windows platforms SHOTPlus T requires a technical upgrade, which can only be achieved by uninstalling and re-installing the program.

Steps have been outlined below to guide you through the process.

  • Go to Start > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall SHOTPlus T
  • Download and install SHOTPlus T (all versions): 
  • Existing product keys will continue working once installed.

If the un-install/re-install is not complete existing applications will continue to function until product key expiration. However, there will be no access to critical bug fixes and feature enhancements, meaning ongoing stability cannot be guaranteed.
