Version 4: Patch 39, 23-JUN-10

Version 4: Patch 39, Released June 23, 2010

This patch has been compressed with the PKZip utility. After downloading, you must decompress it before installing it with the DeltaDOS program.
UNIX Users: This patch is not available for Unix at this time.


The credit card industry is making a major change to their rules, effective July 1 2010. In the past, POS systems like ours were allowed to capture credit card information directly and send it on to processing applications like X-Charge. Because of concerns over security and the increasing rate of credit card fraud, this type of system has, for all intents and purposes, been disallowed by credit card issuers.

In response, we have redesigned our credit card/check guarantee interface so that all sensitive data is entered by the user in X-Charge directly. When you run a payment transaction RTS-Advantage will automatically start the X-Charge window, passing non-sensitive information like transaction amount, invoice number, clerk ID and so on. The net result is that instead of entering the information in our window, you'll enter it in X-Charge's window, a very minor change to your procedures.

If you are an X-Charge user it is very important that you download and install this patch before July 1 and update your X-Charge software to the current version 7 release to ensure uninterrupted service.

When you install the new version many of your settings in the various Merchant Services programs of RTS-Advantage will no longer have any effect since they were settings specific to our old interface. Settings that remain active are:

Use Credit Card Verification/Check Guarantee System
Process Refunds
Process Voids
Receipt Report Format/Number of Copies
Request Answer Directory

Inactive prompts will be removed in a future patch.

Other issues addressed in this patch:

* Changed terminal dates did not immediately refresh on main program screens. AR, PS, BL, OE and QS main menu programs have been updated in this patch.

* Made AR System Defaults (program 50) more resistant to crashing when opening a bad FR file for General Ledger or Inventory.

* Custom Sort Order in AR (program 54) did not properly update key files if the Item Number field was added to the Sales History Custom Sort Order key file. Only seemed to cause problems for the Windows Point of Sale Invoicing module, which would give debug errors when trying to access this key. If you are experiencing this problem you will need to delete and recreate your AR company FR file and reset the Custom Sort Orders to fully correct the problem.
