Product Release Notes / Changelog

TechSuite Windows App 1.0.4

New Features!
  • Offline Mode: TechSuite can now be run offline. We've added new UI elements that display 
    whether you're or offline and prevent you from running online only features when you're offline. 
    We've also added the ability to download tools while you're online so you can prepare for offline
    use of TechSuite (located in the Settings page)
    While offline you can run any tools or procedures that have all their components downloaded. 
    You can switch from Offline mode back to online by clicking the "Offline" button on the bottom 
    of the TechSuite navigation bar
  • New "In Progress" view: We've completely revamped the Procedure progress page. 
    When running a tool or procedure there is a whole new interface for viewing what's currently 
    running including App branding logos and the ability to view tool descriptions and modes. The 
    Procedure tool list has been moved to a new window which you can view by clicking the "Tool Details" 
    button on the "in Progress" page. We've also added individual Tool run times so you can see how 
    long a specific tool has been running.
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed misc. crashes due to .NET errors

TechSuite Windows App 1.0.2

New Tools!
  • We worked with our friends over at Emsisoft to get you Emsisoft Anti-Malware Commandline 
    version as a part of TechSuite, included at no additional cost! You can now run it through 
    TechSuite to scan for and remove malware.
  • We built a new tool called "ProcessHawk" that scans for unnecessary processes and kills them. 
    It can be run before scanning for malware in order to speed up scanning and get malware processes 
    out of the way.
  • We've added a new tool called "Diagnose Printer Issues". We built it to scan all available printers 
    and diagnose issues, and clear the printer spool.
New Features!
  • The "New" button used for creating a new Custom App has been moved to a more visible location. 
    Instead of having to select the "My Apps" category to view the "New" button, 
    you can see the button as soon as you open the Tools page
  • Browse for Local Apps now supports Zip files. When this feature was first released it could only 
    upload and support single file applications. Now you can browse for Zip files if the Local App you 
    want to use is stored that way.
  • Updated Default Procedures to include new Tools.
Bug Fixes:
  • When a tool was run on a version of Windows it was not supported on, the report came up empty. 
    This caused the report to look as though there was a problem running the tool. Now when a tool 
    is run on an OS it doesn't support, it says so in the report.
  • Added support for Windows Vista machines that have .NET version 4.0 or greater. Previously, 
    tools were not running on Vista because it was not supported.
  • Windows Defender is no longer part of the AntiVirus warning during the TechSuite startup checks.
  • Tool reports are no longer written to the debug log. This was causing slowdown during procedure runs 
    and making the debug logs very very big.
  • Improved error handling: The UI no longer pops an annoying Windows error message when something 
    small goes wrong in the app.
  • We're now automatically collecting error information when something goes wrong in the app. 
    This should lead to faster fixes, and you we'll need less debug logs.

Kabuto 1.2.7

  • You can now pick your own style colors for Kabuto via the Kabuto online dashboard.
  • Added a new uninstall code form that prompts your client with a code entry in order to uninstall Kabuto from the client machine. Uninstall code can be found on the Kabuto online dashboard.
  • Fixed a pesky issue causing Emsisoft Anti-Malware to show expired key.
  • Fixed a windows patch management bug that caused the update schedule to not get set properly.

TechSuite Windows App 1.0.1

TechSuite Release Notes 1.0.1

Big Speed and Stability Improvements!

-Improved the way TechSuite Windows App creates processes for running tools. This should fix the issue where tools would run forever because of PID issues. It also should improve speed for running each tool.
-Removed piping of all console output to debug log. This was slowing down running apps, and creating massive debug logs.
-Increased status updates per second. When tools are running it shows a string of text at the bottom to show what it is doing. This was previously updated once per second, which gave the impression sometimes that tools were running slowly. We increased the frequency to 4 times per second.
-Added ability to clone Procedures. On the "New Procedure" page there is now a link to "Load Procedure" as a starting point.
-Miscellaneous other bug fixes.

TechSuite Windows App 1.0

Hosted Custom Apps: 
Phase 2 of our Local Custom App feature is complete! Our new "Hosted Custom App"feature carries over all the functionality from Phase 1 (browsing for your local application) and adds web syncing. When you add a local application by browsing, TechSuite will sync the application to our storage server. The tool is still saved locally and can be immediately used for offline use or without needing to download anything. However you will no longer have to keep track of whether or not you have the file locally, if TechSuite runs the tool and doesn't find the file, it will download the synced version, no effort required!

Rearrange Procedures:
By popular demand! There is now an "order" button above the procedure list on the Procedures page that allows you to rearrange the list of procedures (via drag and drop). Once saved the new order will be synced with TechSuite Dashboard and remain consistent amongst all your instances of TechSuite.

Rearrange Tools: 
The tool list displayed when building a procedure can now be rearranged
by dragging and dropping the tools to the desired location,

Other New Features:
