Nautel has issued an updated release of its free Nautel Legacy AUI Access application for Windows and macOS.
“The app enables continued access to your existing Flash-based AUI without concern for the end-of-year removal of Flash support from commercial browsers,” the company said in a customer service memo to clients.
“No changes are made to the transmitter and no site visit is needed.”
This version eliminates the need for Adobe AIR and Adobe Flash Player to be installed on a user’s computer; it runs as a standalone executable. Information and download are provided on the Nautel website.
The app is intended as an interim solution that will function throughout 2021 so users can choose when they want to migrate to Nautel’s new AUI, according to its website.
Nautel’s AUI or Advanced User Interface provides local and remote monitoring and control for its transmitters; Nautel is replacing the Flash-based AUI with an HTML5 version because Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player at the end of this year, as announced in 2017. The Nautel support page has more info about that and about the impact on major browsers.
