Comfigurator 3.10.11 has been released. To upgrade, open Comfigurator and go to Help > Check for Updates. You need to have an Internet connection
These arethe changes from Comfigurator 3.10.6

Known Bugs
  1. Cannot install on Windows XP. Windows XP users do not upgrade to this version. Windows 7 or above only for this version
  2. File > Update Defaults does not work. This should update the default configurations and templates. To work-around, please unzip the files from this link http://www.cytech.biz/download_files.php?item_id=843 and save in the Comfigurator Installation folder. You do not need to exceute the files
  3. In Zwave, after doing a Learn from Zwave, Flag mappings are changed into Counter in Zwave Mappings.  However this does not afffect the actual mappings in UCM/Zwave, only the display in Comfigurator.To workaround, do another Read from EEPROM for Zwave. This bug was present in older versions of Comfigurator
  4. Virtual Node in Zwave Configurator  Virtual Node Info - SEND button n the right pane is missing from Comfigurator 3.10.9 
Bugs Fixed
  1. Scan for SCS/IRIO detected RIO as IRIO
  2. Inserting "Else" in a Response between If and EndIf  caused Exception
  3. Fixed Read from Comfort Exception when iRIO is present
  4. UCM/CBUS2 Limit of concatenated bytes is limited to 17 so that there is no overflow. Previous versions limited it to 18 bytes which is too much.
  5. In KT03 where write to KT03 failed to any reason, the message "KT03 Upgrade timed out" was changed to "Write/Read to KT03 Timed out"
  6. In KT03, if a button has a status for Zone > 64, read from KT03 caused the zone to be blank.
  7. Fixed BUG. After Module scanning, KP06 and KP04A modules which are removed from the system were not shown. They should be shown in red with the status "Not Found". Only Modules with properties in memory eg UCM/KNX, KP06, KT03 etc will be shown as Not Found. Modules that do not have saved properties will not be shown at all in the modules list if they are removed from the system.
  8. UCM/eHomegreen fixed scanning for modules problem where the scanned modules were not seen.
  9. For Logic Engine without voice, the warning that Vocabulary does not match before write to Comfort has been removed
New Features and Changes
  1. Support for IRIO
  2. Scanning for Modules has been speeded up greatly. What took up to 1 minute now takes only a few seconds, due to a new  scanning method. This requires Comfort Firmware 7.093. Older firmware will still use the old scanning method. This is especially useful as more module types are added to Comfort which would increase the scanning times otherwise.
  3. Timers (in Names > Timers) has a field  called  Timer Status. The "Show Status" button will show the Timer as OFF or ON, and if ON, the remaining timer in seconds is displayed. This is a useful tool when programming and testing Timers.           
  4. "Clear Event Log" button has been added to the Event Log window. It is good practice to Save the event log and delete it so that old events are not lost    
  5. In System Information, "Vocabulary Number" eg 5, has been changed to "Vocabulary Name" eg "English Residential"
  6. The Action "Send RS232" applies to all UCMs, not just the general UCM, so that new commands can be sent to other UCMs which are not supported before.
  7. Send RS232 action in Hex mode accepts space as separator between bytes as well as comma

Thanks for the software update. Unfortunately the installation fails on my system. I suspect this is due to my HA PC running XP and missing a updated component.
After starting the installer, it seems to go through the motions but then after rebooting it shows "The installer was interrupted before Configurator 3.10.11 could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again"
Problem being - If I restart the installer, I get the same message so stuck in a loop and don't know how proceed to uninstall it?
Can you help me?
I tried installing on a different more up-to-date computer and this installs fine, hence the reason I suspect I am missing a component on my good old XP PC.
Happy Christmas everyone! :dude:

Would it be too contentious to wonder why you'd want to still support Windows XP given it is over 14 years old now and doesn't have much market share these days? ;)

OK, thanks for the reply. It hasn't stopped the previous version 3.10.6.0 from working so will leave it at that. 
Incidentally - I tried installing on a windows Vista laptop and it installs and runs no problem, so perhaps Vista and above is ok.

Thanks for the pie chart Julian, this PC is a low energy, solid state machine and unfortunately it is not high enough spec to run windows 7. It does however run every thing else HA related and is on 24/7 accessed via remote desktop (as it's in a rack in my attic). The laptop I access it from is Vista, so not much newer!

If we can support XP without difficulty then we should continue to do so. If any features requires a higher version then that may be a problem

You can also upgrade to 3.10.9 see http://www.comfortforums.com/forum87/4209.html

even though this is considered beta, there are few problems with it

Bug found in 3.10.11

File > Update Defaults does not work (causes exception). This should update the default configurations and templates.

To work-around the problem with  the Update Defaulots feature, please unzip the 2 files from this link http://www.cytech.biz/download_files.php?item_id=843 and save in the Comfigurator Installation folder. You do not need to execute the files

Installed this on Vista machine before reading this thread.....
If I need to install an earlier version do I need to un-install the current one first?

yes, uninstall before installing an older version
3.10.10 is available at this linkhttp://www.cytech.biz/comfigurator.html
3.10.10 is a stable version except for the Known Issue below
  1. Scan for Modules with ULT 7.092 has been improved so that the entire scan takes less than 20 seconds. A problem with the previous Comfigurator which causes duplicate entries for modules has been fixed
  2. Fixed various bugs in HIO and IRIO
  3. For Logic Engine without voice, the warning that Vocabulary does not match before write to Comfort has been removed
Known IssuePlease note that there will be an exception if "Remember Sign in" is set to "True" in OptionsIf this happens copy the dll file after unzipping it into the Comfigurator folder
from http://www.cytech.biz/download_files.php?item_id=847

Bug in Zwave
In Zwave, after doing a Learn from Zwave, Flag mappings are changed into Counters in Zwave Mappings in Comfigurator.  However this does not affect the actual mappings in the UCM/Zwave, only in the displayed mappings in Comfigurator
To workaround, do another Read from EEPROM for Zwave. This bug was present in older versions of Comfigurator
