I know that I should not be surprised as I have been in this industry for so long, but after all the work and testing done prior to releasing GP Power Tools Build 20, we have still come across some issues that needed fixing.
You probably won’t come across most of the issues as they relate to problems caused when company databases are not installed or are offline for some reason. Anyhow, GP Power Tools is now smart enough to handle these extra situations.
If you already have GP Power Tools installed, please download this latest hotfix build and install it over the top of your existing instance.
This build can be identified by the Last Modified: 19-Aug-2015 date on the About GP Power Tools window.
