We have installed nimsoft robot on a server .

When we try to deploy probes for example, the cdm probe, we see compatibility messages in the controller logs as shown below.

  • Please contact support via support ticket to get the installers if required for this version
  • If running an older version of the robot on this platform please uninstall the older robot version and install version 7.92 of robot.
  • After installing the robot enable the nimbus watcher service

Additional Information

There is currently no 7.92GA release - this hotfix was developed before release, and rather than releasing 7.92GA we have chosen to release this hotfix. 
The next robot_update release which contains these fixes will be 7.95.
