After doing an upgrade of AutoVue Client/Server to version 20.1.0 the following error message appears when the Applet is launched:
 
 Initialization failed. Unable to execute remote method: sessionOpen; nested exception
 is:Java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: Method sessionOpen(java.lang.String) not found in

The error message that shows up is different when upgrading to AutoVue version 20.2.0 and up, the error reads for example :

client = pre 20.2.2

An error occurred while connecting to the server.
Restart the applet?
