We continue to update CROSS Library to support Windows XP through Windows 10.
-bug fix in printing (resolved a printing issue where General Protection Faults would occur in some situations causing CROSS Library to close) If you are currently having trouble with this, please install the latest download at crosslibrary.com/download to resolve the issue.
As of January 5, 2018:
We are very pleased to announce that our CROSS Library Subscription reminders are being resumed, and you can expect to receive them via email, fax, or postcard. Please do not be surprised if you see that your subscription has EXPIRED. Our reminders system was down for a very long time, and you were likely not notified of your expiration during that time.
THANK YOU! We VERY MUCH appreciate and depend on each one who can keep your subscription current as it helps us pay the bills, improve our software and services, and be more available for support for each need.
HOW TO RENEW:
a) If you have NEVER renewed ONLINE on our site, please use the crosslibrary.com/renew link to help you get current again for your account.
b) Otherwise, you may EXTEND your Subscription using our Your-Account/Subscriptions page. (After your first renewal, you should always extend via your Subscriptions under Your-Account. This allows our web system to help you manage your subscription easily and to notify you when it’s about to expire.)
Concerning Renewal Reminders: We recently added a FREE 30-day Subscription extension offer available for 90-days from notice. If you have not installed all of the software updates during your EXPIRED Subscription Term, you will see this offer in your reminder. We are doing our best to ensure that you have access to the latest and best updates, and we are giving you ALL of the latest software updates in this offer to help ensure that you have the opportunity to get what you have paid for in your previous subscription. Please do not miss these update offers as these software updates tend to often resolve issues automatically.
As of December 20, 2017:
We have implemented our new phone automated phone system to help us all with these significant improvements:
- When you call from a phone# on your customer account, you will AUTOMATICALLY hear your account status information (expired, expiring, or current through X date) along with an optional reminder to install the latest software updates, if our system detects that you do not have them installed at this time. This should help each of our customers to remain aware of account and software update status.
- Anyone that calls will hear our CLOUD STATUS to let you know if we are in the process of maintenance or some other issue affecting your service. This is provided for your reference in situations where something isn’t working correctly for you in CROSS Library at the moment. If you do not hear ‘operational’, you may wish to select 2 (for support) on the main menu, and we can provide details or help you resolve the issue (where you might have limited time preventing you to simply retry later).
- You may check your account status FROM ANY PHONE by pressing 3 on our main menu and punching in your Customer Number and Zipcode. After you do this the first time, your number will be associated with your account, and you will automatically hear your account status on any call you place from that phone.
- Each call you make to our 877 numbers is logged, and we will return your calls even if something goes wrong. If you are prompted to leave a short message, please do so, as it helps us know your specific situation. Thank you!
As of September 1, 2017:
We have improved our website by upgrading our hosting for better performance as well as allowing us to expand as the need requires.
We have enhanced our email security in the past few weeks. We have had some problems responding to emails due to the configuration changes–so please be patient as we work through these issues. We will respond to all emails ASAP as these issues are resolved.
We continue to update CROSS Library to support Windows XP through Windows 10. You can see our latest updates and plans on this page.
As of June 2017:
We have improved our website shopping cart and checkout process to make it more self-explanatory, and we have added PayPal as a new payment method for those who prefer it.
We continue to update CROSS Library to support Windows XP through Windows 10. Here are a few of the most recent updates:
-improved printing support (new and improved report sorting options)
-improved search and find options (now includes NOT options for inverse set matching where needed)
-improved backup prompting
-bug-fixes along the way:
-fixed backup functions to eliminate ‘Another user is in your database’ messages wherever possible
-fixed several sorting errors
-fixed accession range errors (at times an existing search would filter the keyed accession ranges on print selection window)
-miscellaneous minor bugs
We also added new support for customers to request CROSS to configure custom log-ins for each PC:
a) to a default database specific to each PC, if desired
b) to each database using specific default users (ie. LIB1.L17 on ALL PCs: VIEW / Home PC: ADMN / Library Desk PC: EDIT)
* these settings are normally configured for all databases across all PCs on your account, then specific to each database and PC/database combination
Note 1: Re-installation of CROSS Library onto each PC is necessary to update these settings.
(These settings are stored in the CROSS cloud.)
Note 2: An internet backup must already be on your account from each machine you wish us to configure. If it has not been done, we may request that you make a backup prior to configuring these settings.
As of May 2017:
We have been working on updates for CROSS Library which help resolve several issues related to these functions:
backups, restore, rebuild, shutdown, reports
If your CROSS Library Subscription is active, you will get the available updates when you install using our regular installer found on our download page. Note: If you have updated since early April, you may wish to reinstall after our next release scheduled for mid-May. This announcement will be updated after that is complete so you will be aware of the status.
As of January 12th, 2016:
We are providing our new Windows 10 Laptop Systems where you can select a Windows 10 Laptop, your best CROSS Library Subscription renewal option, and even a CROSS Library License if you are a just starting with CROSS Library. We will continue to update the site for improved clarity and increased Windows 10 support information over the next few weeks.
As of December 31th, 2015:
We are happy to announce that we have begun providing Windows 10 32-bit laptops for purchase through CROSS Systems, Inc. This allows us the ability to provide you with systems matching our current software configuration with long-term support from Microsoft. Our process is that we install or update Windows 10 32-bit onto the laptops, install basic anti-virus software along with the latest Windows updates and CROSS Library. We register CROSS Library to your account and restore your latest internet backup from your account before shipping the laptop to you, so most often, you can just open and use the system. Of course, you should, as always, verify that you have the latest data before you begin adding new data into the system. That’s about as easy as it gets!
NOTE: Customers currently using Windows Vista, XP, 2000, ME, 98, or older should consider upgrading via this option, if possible, due to Windows 10 expanded requirements on computer hardware.
As of August 2015:
Since Microsoft has released Windows 10 in 32-bit editions, we have completed testing and are happy to announce that CROSS Library has verified compatibility for use on Windows 10 Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education 32-bit editions! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND installing CROSS Library onto Windows 10 32-bit compared to using a virtual machine to provide compatibility. Microsoft provides free upgrades from Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 customers up to Windows 10. This is a very good offer, and we recommend taking that offer. After you have upgraded to Windows 10, we can assist you in installing the 32-bit edition of Windows 10 if you have a 64-bit version and a current CROSS Library Subscription. (Details provided on our Compatibility and Tech Support pages and will be refined over time.)
