GLOBALCOM.IP/GCK Service Pack 12 (v12.0.8)

Service Pack 12 release of GLOBALCOM/CONTROLKOM (GCK v12.0.8).  What software/installers/packages to use depends on one's starting point, listed here as Installation Options A, B, and C.  

Service Pack 12 does require running the GCK SP11 Prerequisite Software Installer.  This installer will check to see if any of the GCK SP11 prerequisites are missing.  It will install any prerequisites found missing. 

It is also recommended that all Dante devices controlled by GCK be updated to at least v4.x.

Due to stricter password requirements, the default usernames and passwords have changed.  The new default usernames and passwords are:

gck_admin/gck_admin, gck_installer/gck_installer, and gck_user/gck_user.
