MZ-Tools 8.0 Build 8.0.0.99 released with emergency fixes

The last build 8.0.0.96 released last September 1 introduced two important bugs and a previous build 8.0.0.77 introduced two other bugs related to .NET Framework versions that could prevent the load of MZ-Tools 8.0 for VB6/VB5/VBA in some scenarios. I have considered all of them enough important to release the fixes today. I am sorry the inconveniences.

The change log is the following:

MZ-Tools 8.0.0.99 released (September 5, 2016)

  • Fixed [Internal] (All): Error “Creation of tool window failed” when MZ-Tools tries to restore a toolwindow that was left open in the last session.
  • Fixed [Internal] (All): The Quality Review was executed on build (Release configuration) even if no review was set to execute.
  • Fixed [#11477] (VB6/VB5/VBA): MZ-Tools could not be loaded on Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 without SP1 if .NET Framework 4.0 was not installed. This bug was introduced in build 8.0.0.77.
  • Fixed [#11462] (VB6/VB5/VBA): Toolwindows could not be shown (System.InvalidCastException “Unable to cast COM object of type ‘System.__ComObject’ to class type System.Windows.Forms.UserControl”) on Windows 8 or higher if .NET Framework 3.5 was installed after installing MZ-Tools. This bug was introduced in build 8.0.0.77.
