All SAPIEN Software will be 64 bit

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013 by Alex Riedel
With some of our smaller free tools, for example PrimalPad, we started creating 32 bit and 64 bit versions quite some time ago. There is no capacity reason for a text editor to be 64 bit, after all, your script probably won’t exceed 4 GB anytime soon. Users of our current versions know that, PrimalScript 2012 and PowerShell Studio 2012 which are 32 bit executables, fully support 64 bit OS varieties and languages. But there is just something to be said for running software that is native to your operating system. Eliminating subsystem layers and folder redirections are just two…   More »

PrimalPad 2012 gets script signing

Thursday, August 9th, 2012 by Alex Riedel
We think that setting your execution policy to AllSigned or at least RemoteSigned in PowerShell is very important. Likewise, your security policy for VBScript, JScript and WSF file should also only allow signed scripts to be executed. PrimalScript and PowerShell Studio have always supported script signing and so does the new PowerShell Profile Editor. So we concluded that giving you PrimalPad without code signing abilities would be a bit of a double standard. The new PrimalPad 2012 build (2.1.28) supports script signing with any code signing certificate you may have in your personal store, a specific certificate or a PFX…   More »

Additional downloads for registered users

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012 by Alex Riedel
If you have any software registered at MySAPIEN you will start to see additional downloads when you login. For one, you will see the stand-alone installers for PrimalMerge 2012 and the SAPIEN Document Explorer there. If you are creating a custom install for PrimalScript or PowerShell Studio these two packages are installed as prerequisites and you cannot influence their installation path. By using these stand-alone installers you can install them in any other location than the default path. Additionally you will see bonus downloads available here, such as the new PowerShell Profile Editor.…   More »

Introducing the PowerShell Profile Editor

Saturday, August 4th, 2012 by Alex Riedel
PowerShell’s profiles make setting up your work environment a bit easier, allowing you to pre-load your most common snapins or modules, define functions, set variables and whatever else you need on startup. However, since there are quite a number of profiles, potentially one for each host, one for all users, one for each user, one for all users and all hosts, the number of files can get a bit out of hand. If you consider that some of these are also duplicated for 32 and 64 bit if you happen to run on a 64 bit OS, you’ll see that…   More »

So if you downloaded PrimalForms CE and it doesn’t have a start page, then you are running an old version. Please download the latest version of PrimalForms CE here:…   More »
