Data Port Console is now FREE

As promised, Data Port Console is now free. Download it from here.

Data Port Wizard is now FREE

As I said on my previous post, Primeworks is closing down and our products will become free. I have just uploaded the new version of Wizard that is now license-free. If you already have a license of Wizard, you will receive the update notification when starting the application. Anyway, you can download the installer from here.

Console will be next!

Primeworks is closing

I'm very sad to inform the very few of you who are still interested in Primeworks' products that the company is closing down. The business volume has decreased so steeply that it can no longer support the product development and support. Fortunately I have other business concerns that are getting all of my attention, so this will be a minor personal loss for me. It was fun while it worked, though!

In the very near future, all products will be removed from our online business platform and the licensing requirements removed from the distribution installers. All products will be essentially free (copyrights retained). Next, I will devote some time to publish all the source code and convert these products into open source projects.

Look for more news here, as the official site will be coming down in the following weeks.

Primeworks.Data Licensing

If you are trying out the latest version of Primeworks.Data, please make sure that you are correctly using the Primeworks.Data.License class:
  1. Create an instance of the object using empty strings on both arguments of the constructor
  2. Assign it to the License property of either the Pipe object (if you are using the SqlCe.Core classes) or to the License property of the SqlCeConnection object (if you are using the ADO.NET-compatible classes)
Here's a sample (C#):

Primeworks.Data.License license = new Primeworks.Data.License("", "");
SqlCeConnection connection = new SqlCeConnection();
connection.License = license;

Data Port Wizard 2.1.280

Data Port Wizard has been updated to version 2.1.280. Besides correcting some minor bugs, this version adds a new feature: the data transfer event log. If an error occurs during data transfer, a detailed log of the data transfer process is displayed along with the exception to help determine the cause of the error.
