Receptionist Client requires Java to run, but will not run on the very latest versions of java. It is recommended that the optimum version of java to run is Java 7 Update 21. If you're not sure which version you have, this can be found in the Java option within your Control Panel on your computer, or in Add/Remove Programs

In the past, we have noted that running incorrect versions of java can impact the ability to view contacts within a directory. 

If you are experiencing issues with the Call Centre Client, please follow the below instructions (instructions provided for Windows 7, other Operating Systems may vary)

  • Click Start
  • Control Panel
  • Java
  • Advanced
  • Java Console - Show Console
