Release Notes

This new release eliminates the dependency on Microsoft.Office dll's for web service calls when the app is running on a non-SharePoint computer. It contains breaking changes from v1.1 in the API.

Reviews for this release

Leaving aside the ghastly UI, this utility fails dismally at what it should be most useful for. The main use for this is experimenting with queries, and finding out what goes wrong. As such, its error handling and reporting needs to be faultless. Instead, any and every query error causes an internal threading error, which is reported instead of the one you actually want.

Has a lot of potential but sadly doesn't work. After a query or two a TargetInvocationException is thrown: "The calling thread cannot access this object because a different thread owns it". The UI has everything you need but is kind of wacky with black and white gradients everywhere - a standard WinForms UI would be nicer. Hopefully will be developed further, this could be a handy little app!!
