If you are using Window 7, the menu options may appears to be transparent, this has been fixed in the latest release by changing the menu background to be in sync with the main window.

The other problem with Window 7 that you may encounter is failure to save your default setting correctly when exiting. That is because NoticeBoard is trying to update to default.dat in the installation directory. The solution is that you have to grant write access to it, until we have a permanent fix during the installation process.

In the last update, we had introduced a bug which stop the schedule from repeating itself. Unfortunately we did not get to hear any feedback, otherwise it would have been fixed promptly.

Though the software is free, please do not hesitate to sound us out should you need help or notice something not right. You comments and questions are valuable to us!
