Deployment issues

Since upgrading to, I have an issue where after a deploment starts, and the application loses focus (alt + tab to another application), the deployment modal window minimizes in the bottom left hand corner and never comes back. Ever. The only option is to hit the server and see if there is any activity with my login, and cancel the task.

I did a quick search of the forum and didn't see any posts.

Any words of wisdom?

    Hi Kevin,

    Sorry you've run into an issue with this. I couldn't seem to reproduce this by Alt+Tab but if I minimise that dialog box I can see a similar issue. In my case clicking on the Data Compare icon on the task bar seemed to bring the dialog back when Alt+Tab did not but its not clear to me that this is the same issue. In fact its not clear to me that this dialog should be minimizable in the first case.

    Out of interest which Operating System are you using?

    Same here - in 2018, using Windows 10. The deployment window minimizes to the lower left corner of the screen. I reproduced this using Windows-M in attempt to switch to the desktop.

    Any fix for this?
