R80.x Demo vs R77 Demo
In R77 (and earlier versions), Demo Mode was based on a local emulation of the CPMI server using files deployed as part of the SmartConsole installation.
Starting from R80, as business logic has been ported to the Management Server, full server is required for the demo functionality.
