    Hi ASV93,

    Just curious on what you used to design that UI.

    Thanks,
    Bosh

    That only happens if you click in the Check for Updates button more than 1 time in the same second. I guess you did that since when there are no updates available the app does not show any message after clicking in the Check for Updates button. You can also check for updates launching Setup.exe and clicking in Update.

    Load the controls by the VS Toolbox from the library of the MetroFramework?

    Ok I'm back.

    ASV93, I have decided to unify all the different Activation threads together while providing a link to this Reader as it gives a much easier way to read the MS XRM-MS files.

    Also Nice to see that Policy Bin reader tab added well done!

    :)

    Advise:

    I would format the Bin Policies differently by formatting it with the policies being in the rows as you will be able to read them easier without expanding the columns off the edge of the screen.

    This will make it easier to read by people.

    When multiple ranges are defined for an SKU, it combines all start & end ranges in single cell. :(

    Example: Windows Server 12 R2 RTM ServerDatacenter OEM:SLP; Range: 0-19999, 2000-39999, 40000-5999, 60000-79999, 80000-999999999

    Output by PKeyConfig Reader -> Start: 0 20000 40000 60000 80000 ; End: 19999 39999 59999 79999 999999999

    I downloaded the file again and tried to run it on Windows 7 SP1 & Server 2008 SP1. The utility runs well on both OSes.:biggrin: So I guess it was my own problem.:p Thanks for your reply. :worthy:

    Hi

    I got error when exporting:
    Code:
    Error saving the file: Invalid index. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8002000B (DISP_E_BADINDEX))
    is't because my Excel isn't English?

    and on another system with no Excel installed, i got this:
    Code:
    Error saving the file:
    Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).
    
    Both Windows 8.1 x86

    Regards.

    Yup. I will see later if i can make it work with any language. If you dont want to wait you can try to download the english Language Pack for office and set your Office UI Language to English.

    Edit: The bug should now be fixed. (v1.4.1.0)

    new versions changelog

    • ability to conveniently display and export Windows stock keeping unit configuration (EditionMatrix) and Windows upgradeability configuration (UpgradeMatrix)
    • new output for PKeyConfig information: now each keyrange will be on it's own row (by this fixing the issue where not all ranges were displayed, when having too many ranges), as well added the calculation of the ranges

    v1.4.3.0
    • can optionally exclude reserve key ranges from calculations
    • can now pidcheck keys against the currently loaded pkeyconfig.
