XrmToolBox new version : Welcome CRM 2015

XrmToolBox previous version was a great success : More than 5K downloads, 13 ratings with an average rate of 4,7/5.

So today, I’m proud to release a new version of XrmToolBox. This is kind of a major version since a lot of changes are included in this release. Please read blow

CRM 2015 and .Net Framework 4.5.2

This release is the version of XrmToolBox to use CRM 2015 SDK assemblies. That means plugins for XrmToolBox can now uses new capabilities of CRM 2015 SDK (of course, it can still connect to CRM 2011 and 2013). That means above all that XrmToolBox now requires .Net Framework 4.5.2.

When launching this new version, if your computer does not contain this version of .Net Framework, you will be prompt to download and install it.

Signed assemblies

Thanks to Digicert.com which provides free code signing certificate to Microsoft MVP’s, files that are shipped with XrmToolBox package are now all digitally signed. That means you can check if files your are using with XrmToolBox come from me and were not altered by another developer.

To check this, just look at file properties

Updated version checker

If you are using XrmToolBox previous version, you should already have received a notification about this new version. I updated this dialog box to display also a “What’s new“ section. This allows you to check what are the new features before going to CodePlex download page.

Here are some of the other updates (for a complete list, go to download page):

  • You can close XrmToolBox plugins with a middle click on tabs

Hi, Tanguy. The codeplex site has had issues for a few weeks now and I can't download the tool. Is there another way I can get this? Thanks!

Hi Adam,

Despite CodePlex issues, you should still be able to download the zip package...

I don't have any other way to distribute it for the current release.

Next release will be downloadable from Github

Tangay,

This is incorrect. All of the download links for on Codeplex no longer work.

Can you email the solution at all?
