Resolved issues

No customer bugs reported for fix in this release.


.NET Core 3.1.x SDK required

This release of Report Generator and Report Generator for Dashboards require a manual installation of .NET Core 3.1.x SDK (minimum). .NET Core 3.1.x SDK is an LTS release and will be supported by Microsoft for longer.

ApplicationMinimum SDK required?Notes
Report Generator GUI.NET Core 3.1.x SDK

The .NET Core 3.1.x SDK should be manually installed BEFORE or AFTER running the Report Generator setup installer (the setup installer will not install this for you). See CAST Report Generator - Installation process for more details.

Report Generator for Dashboards

Previous releases of Report Generator for Dashboards required the .NET Core runtime. To avoid confusion, both Report Generator GUI and Dashboards will now require the SDK. See CAST Report Generator - CAST Report Generator for Dashboards for more details.

Note that if Report Generator GUI does not launch, or a .NET error message is displayed when attempting to launch it, this usually means that the required release of .NET Core is not installed on the machine (either nothing is installed at all, or the wrong type is installed e.g. runtime vs SDK).
