The latest version of Smart View was released December 2017 which is version 188.8.131.52.720. This version introduces new features and many bug fixes from older versions. Also, this version and any version starting at 184.108.40.206+ are compatible with Hyperion 220.127.116.11.500 and higher. The nice thing about that is if you are “stuck” on an older version (18.104.22.168 xxx) due to constraints, timing, or FDM and not FDMEE; you can still install and utilize the updated version of Smart View.
Smart View can be mass deployed or installed from Workspace after updating the installer.
