Required Launcher Update

We have released a patch on our SaaS PCRecruiter network which includes a necessary update to our PCRecruiter Launcher. The Launcher is a small desktop app that allows PCRecruiter to connect with your computer’s local OS for interactions like alarm popups, attachment handling, and so on. When you log into PCRecruiter you should be prompted to install the latest version.
