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
