BeyondInsight 7.0 and later releases do not include support for a number of features. These are listed in the installer on the first step. Proceeding with the installation, in upgrade situations, removes your ability to access the particular functions listed here. You may contact BeyondTrust Support to obtain the Flash SWF files to restore these functions, but this is a manual process.
