I've seen a problem twice with the Feb 14 build. When restoring a recent tab session, I get a prompt that the file has mixed line endings. No matter how I answer the question, the file that is opened is empty.

With a recent tab sessions of 5 tabs, one was corrupt. The time before, I opened a tab session of 10 tabs and 3 were corrupted.

Any ideas?

Hello Kevin,
You are the first one to report this. It would be nice, if you could detect some system in such behavior. Does it happen after some kind of crash ? Or it happens after regular SSMS shutdown/restart ?
Check also, that you have latest build of SSMS version, and please tell, which SSMS version do you use (2008-2016).
Please send further information to support@ e-mail.
Thank you !

Apologies for my delayed reply. I'm using SSMS 2016 (16.5.3). Currently I'm unable to reproduce this currently. It may have been the result of an SSMS crash. If I see it again or can reproduce it, I'll post again.

When is the Boost coming out for SSMS 2016? I am running the trial mode and am getting the 3 day error.

Cannot live without this thing.

I'm getting the same "3 day" error for SMSSBoot 2014 and 2008. I tried reactivating my community license but all buttons on the "About / License" screen are disabled.

Hi,
In the latest release 3.0.6282.18572 item Recent -> "Pick recent state" disappeared. It was really useful. What is the point now of "Save current state" ?

Hello!
I've installed latest beta on ssms 2016, running on windows 10
I've found that the SSMS caption functionnality is not fully working:
* It changes the caption of the thmbnails that appear on Windows 10 task bar
* It does not change the caption of the ssms window itself.

Additionnaly, ssms 2016 now shows the solution name in the window caption - but not in the thumbnail appearing in the taskbar. However ssmsboost does not prove a macro to include the solution name in the ssms caption. Could that be added in the next release?
Thanks!

Here is extract from changelog:
UPGRADES from previous versions:
"In case windows will ask you for .msi of the previous version and you do not have
one, you can download it under this URL:
http://www.ssmsboost.com...chive/SSMSBoostInstaller {version}.msi
Just replace {version} with version number, your system is asking you for.“

Does the BETA release allow for registration of the 'free' community license ? I've been using the version 3.0.6282 for a few weeks now and all of a sudden when launching SSMS 2016, it tells me the license key is expired and I need to register either licenses.. problem is the to button to copy the token/machine key is disabled !! so I can't provide that to the registration page on the SSMSBoost site...

We will release next iteration of Beta by the end of this week, most probably on Friday, 13-th ;)
There are several usability improvements and additional features coming.
SSMS 2017 support will NOT be present, as far as it requires a bit more work to be done.
We hope to add it in next iteration.

As promised, next release of SSMSBoost v3.0 Beta6

Release notes:

NEW FEATURES

-TRANSACTION REMINDER: whenever execution of last SQL batch leaves open transactions
SSMSBoost will show floating information window with the reminder. There will be one
reminder window shown per SQL Editor tab. Reminder can be closed or will close itself
when @@TRANCOUNT reaches 0. Feature re-uses native SSMS functionality, that checks open
transactions whenever you try to close SQL Editor window with open transactions. Due to
this fact we do not show number of open transactions. You can always check number of
open transactions using SELECT @@TRANCOUNT statement. (Can be disabled in Settings)

-"Copy as Values list": copy values from ResultsGrid as native SQL values list that
can be re-used in SQL statements. Strings are quoted, datetime values are in canonical
form. Result is placed to clipboard and is ready to be pasted to your "WHERE in ()" and
other statements.

-"Preferred connections" drop down is now extended with "Recent connections" secion.
Number of recent connections can be configured in Settings->Preferred Connections.

IMPROVEMENTS

-"Preferred connections" drop down used native SSMS "Local databases" drop down to fill
it's"local databases" part, which worked extremely slow when working on remote servers
with heavy load or poor connection. Now this feature is improved and listing works
much faster. Additionally there is a possibility to show only "accessible" databses
for your DB user, based on native SQL has_dbaccess() function. For more options
see in Settings->Preferred Connections.

-In several SSMSBoost Settings dialogs, like Autoreplacements, some strings can use
pre-defined parameters. Help-Text in dialog can be now clicked to copy parameter name to clipboard.

-Fixed behavior or {server} parameter in Autoreplacements and added new {serverDisplayName} parameter.

-Change log with notes about recent changes will now be displayed on first run after the installation.

-File names generated with "Visualize as" functionality will start with correspinging column name.

Hi,

I am encountering the following error after installing the latest update for SSMS 2014, which is crashing at launch :


Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio

The Add-in 'SSMSBoost' failed to load or caused an exception.
Would you like to remove this Add-in?
If you choose yes, the file it was loaded from, 'C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SQL Server Management Studio\12.0\\Addins\SSMSBoost.addin', will be renamed.

Error Message: The parameter is incorrect.


Error number: 80070057

Yes No


The following are my current versions :

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 12.0.2402.0
Microsoft Analysis Services Client Tools 12.0.2402.0
Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 6.3.9600.17415
Microsoft MSXML 3.0 4.0 6.0
Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.11.9600.18538
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.30319.42000
Operating System 6.3.9600

If there is a way to resolve this, it would be appreciated, as the plug in is not working at the moment.

Thanks,
Steve

Since updating to the latest beta for SSMS 2016, the option to try and connect to the same database name between servers no longer seems to work. Before I could switch between dev/test and prod databases using the Quick Connections list, but now it doesn't appear to be even trying to connect to the same database, instead just using the default database defined for the user. Connected to the new "Recents" list thing maybe?

Thanks for the update!

Unfortunately I have the same error as Stellar Steve here but for SSMS 2012.
SSMSBoost become unusable.

I'm reverting back to the previous beta for today.

Hi

Yeah, same problem as StellerSteve.
I am on SQL Server 2014 with .NET 4.6 and I am also reverting back to old beta version, though I have only one day left 😞

Thank you guys! Amazing tool!

Could you consider making trials longer? At least until you have full version released. It would give you some breathing space, and save a bit of embarrassment due to releasing not even half-baked versions.. The sort of errors like in release 6343 indicates that no one even bothered to fire up older versions of SSMS to check released software...

Hello

Working on the latest beta in SSMS 2012 it seems now the list of Connections doesn't update with all the available DBs in the current server, like it used to.

I'm also getting an error message ("The database DBNAME is not accessible." where DBNAME is the database name) when I try to switch between two databases on the same connection through the Connections drop-down menu in the toolbar. SSMS 2012, latest Boost beta. After the error, though, the connection gets established anyway.

SSMSBoost v3.0 Beta7 - SSMS 2017 is now supported !

-SSMS 2017 Supported ! Note: SSMS 2017 brought further changes in internal structure, so that we had to re-implement
some hooks and interaction routines. We have done full test by now and fixed all issues that were found. One known issue is in
progress: "OUTPUT" keyword within "EXECUTE" statement will not be formatted. We would be thankful if you report us any issues,
that you encounter.
