This article applies to NET SatisFAXtion 8.5.


The only affected version for this error is 8.0.3214.824

Error installing the Client Suite - Gateway/Installed Exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.



A utility called by the installer to check for an email gateway installation, before allowing the Client Suite to be installed, did not find the proper gateway information in GatewaysDirectory.xml on the fax server. The look-up did not catch this exception so the installer exits.


This look-up has been corrected and will be part of the next release. For version 8.0.3214.824 follow the instructions below carefully.
