Public Talks 20.0.6 is now available

I am pleased to announce that there is a new version of Public Talks now available.

What’s New

This edition fixes a bug that was recently brought to my attention. On the Google Calendar Preferences window there is an option to customize the Where entry of the calendar event:

Preferences — Google Calendar
Preferences — Google Calendar

This setting was not working correctly for home talks. It was accidentally using the location of the congregation that the speaker was from. I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Problems starting Public Talks

We have started to notice that Public Talks sometimes won’t start and displays an error message, eg:

Operating system not presently configured to run this application

Error Message

This problem has been discussed in the Support Forum and we have come to the conclusion that it is caused after applying recent Windows Updates. We don’t know why the breakage happens and if there is any way to avoid it. At the moment the only thing that works is running a Repair on your Microsoft Access Runtime. You will find some screen shots and extra details about how to do this in the linked discussion. Once again, I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
