Release notes

We've been working hard on a NEW & IMPROVED version!

Latest version:


  • Added a new Advanced Recordset tool. Learn more about what you can do with the tool here.

  • Added a timeout option to the Database tools.
  • Fixed an issue with the Debug for a ForEach when part of a manual loop.
  • Fixed and added new examples – find them in the Examples folder in the Explorer.
  • Implemented an execution logging DB (SQLite). All executions with all relevant details are logged to this DB. Please note: If you are running on a server that performs a lot of executions, we suggest that you move the DB file to a hard drive with lots of space as this file can get quite large.
  • now uses the new execution logging database as the source for the log data.
  • Assign Object tool now respects recordset notation (this would previously error and create the wrong object structure).
  • Resolved an issue with the File tools where overwrite was required.
  • Added an introduction video to the installer for new installs.
  • Fixed an issue with the installer that would cause it to fail due to a Windows Group Error.
