New Version of BuildDesk U Now Available

BuildDesk U 3.4.6 release 505 now available -14th March 2022

Versions prior to U 3.4.6 release 505 will expire on 18th March or 19th March 2022. To ensure that you have continuity of access to the BuildDesk U software you will need to update to the latest version. Do not de-install your existing version. If you have Adminstration rights, just download and run the new setup file and it will then update your existing software. The new update will also automatically default to the 18th or 19th March expiry date.

You will then need to request your new licence code and you will then receive a new licence code, set to your correct expiry date, by Email. If you have already received your licence code for BDU 3.4.6 just input the new licence code.

Click here to download the update.

This latest release includes several improvements when setting the Environmental conditions for Condensation risk calculations and added U-value calculations for Inverted roofs. Several catalogues such as Celotex, Rockwool, Siniat, DuPont/Tyvek and Visqueen have been updated and a further update is scheduled for release in May. We hope you like the improvements. Keep feeding back any suggestions you have and we will do our best to incorporate as many as we can in future releases.

Good News – a new update for BuildDesk U arriving this week

You should have been receiving a countdown in BuildDesk U 3.4 (it’s actually 3.4.5) to the expiry date of 18th/19th March 2022. We are just about to release an update (3.4.6) to users of our software.  We will make it available for download from the BuildDesk U Download  page. We hope you like the updates and improvements that we’ve made.

Remember – Don’t deinstall your current software version. If you have Administration rights, just download and run the install and it will update your version to the latest one. Your system number will stay the same and we will release new licence codes for your remaining licence period.

Covid-19 Update – opening hours as normal

We are continuing to provide our services to clients as normal. The only exceptions to this are the monthly training courses which are cancelled for May due to the current lockdown restrictions

Future training dates are still being scheduled on our website and we continually review these in line with latest official advice. When meeting restrictions are lifted training will resume.

BuildDesk U software crashing after opening – Microsoft Windows updates

We are pleased to report that Microsoft released updates during the end of August and early September that have now fixed this issue.

BuildDesk U software users who ran Windows updates released on 14/15 August 2019 may have experienced problems with our software crashing after opening. Our initial guidance was that this could be fixed by temporarily uninstalling the latest Microsoft Security update.

Go to Windows Settings>Updates and Security>Windows Update> View update history>Uninstall updates>Microsoft Windows. Select the most recent Security update for Microsoft Windows and then Uninstall program.

This will return your computer prior to the Windows update and the software will run as normal.

Please turn off automatic Windows updates until Microsoft release a patch for this. Updates have now been released.

Apologies to any of our customers who experienced this problem.

We have added a document to explain this on our FAQ page for the U-value software. The document can also be directly downloaded here.
