This release of NHS Digital Identity Agent Version is a bug fix release, which resolves the following issues.
Identity Agent Pin form default focus issue
When the smart card is inserted, the Identity agents pin form is displayed. If this form has input focus then the user can insert the passcode. If an application takes ownership of the input focused, the passcode is not accepted in that pin form window and can end up being typed elsewhere. This fix endeavours to ensure that the input focus remains on the pin form as expected and no competing application maintains focus.
Windows Hello for Business
Fix for Windows Hello for Business service detection issue with Identity Agent on Virtual RDS environments like VDI and Citrix which was causing the Identity Agent to fail.
