This applies to all versions, even version 5. So updating wont help or hurt the issue. As long as you're a paid license holder this will never affect you. It only affects betas and trial versions which pop up a blocking security warning at launch that is in turn hidden by the COM interface. We can't remove the security dialogs because then it would allow batch/COM to be used to bypass the security. I might add a way to detect it though and actually prompt the user in batch or abort from the creation of the COM object so that it doesn't just hang. Some day. Not high priority as it doesn't affect many users.Thanks for the notification !
I rely on it, so will defer updating for now
