Winthrop Development Consultants now distribute Visual Studio Integration Toolkit directly. To ensure a smooth transition, all existing sites will need to upgrade to build 12 or later before their subscription with Mekorma expires.
Winthrop Development Consultants are proud to release updated builds for GP Power Tools, Batch Posting Service Toolkit and Visual Studio Integration Toolkit. These builds include fixes and enhancements as well as a new registration system and an automatic check for updates.
Important Note: Please update all your installed Winthrop Development Consultants products at the same time. Failure to do so will cause products not updated to be unregistered.
Following on from yesterday’s article: Visual Studio Tools: Best Practice when adding References to Projects, I wanted to highlight that all of Winthrop Development Consultants product installers have been updated to help avoid the problems caused by duplicate old DLL files in the Addins folder.
This issue is most likely with Visual Studio Integration Toolkit where developers use the toolkit from their products by adding the reference to the Dictionary Assembly DLL file.
On the 14th November 2017, a new build of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit was released to coincide with Winthrop Development Consultants taking back distribution of the product from Mekorma.
This new build, dated 14-Nov-2017, includes a new registration system which allows partners and customers to register the product for free without needing to contact anyone in advance to obtain a licence. However, if the registration is already recorded on the registration server, the keys are automatically populated.
The build also includes the ability to let the administrator user know if an update for the code has been released.
This article is to announce a new build of the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP (VSIT) is now available for download.
This new build coincides with the change in ordering and support for Visual Studio Integration Toolkit. From now on, Winthrop Development Consultants is handling all distribution and support for Visual Studio Integration Toolkit directly. Mekorma will no longer be involved with this free product.
I wanted to take an opportunity to respond to the feedback with some history and facts about the product that will explain why it now requires registration.
Since the change from Menus for Visual Studio Tools to Visual Studio Integration Toolkit (VSIT) and more recently the release of Build 11 of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit, I have received some questions about how to include the VSIT code in the Visual Studio Tools Addin’s installer.
