LightHouse Cannes v3.11.42

LightHouse Cannes 3.11 is the last major LightHouse 3 software release to support eS and gS Series systems.

As such, mixed systems of Axiom / Axiom Pro / Axiom XL and eS/gS Series displays must remain on LightHouse 3.11.42 or a prior release.

IMPORTANT: Axiom+ multifunction displays cannot be downgraded to v3.11.42, and so are not compatible with eS/gS mixed LightHouse3 systems.
