VersionRecall integration with PrimalScript and PowerShell Studio

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014 by Alex Riedel
The folks over at recently published a review of VersionRecall ( There was one paragraph that took us a little bit by surprise: “Unfortunately, PowerShell Studio doesn’t seem to recognize VersionRecall as a source control provider (at least, it didn’t show up when I tried to configure source control in PowerShell Studio). That means you can’t use the integrated check-in/out controls in PowerShell Studio. Instead, you almost want to open files by using VersionRecall’s Explorer, save them in PowerShell Studio, and then submit them to the repository back in VersionRecall. That’s a shame; the automatic check-in/out in PowerShell Studio…   More »

VersionRecall 2014: FAQ

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014 by Alex Riedel
Over the course of the weeks since the release of VersionRecall 2014 we have received a number of questions. Here is a list of the most common ones and the answers to them.   Question: Why do you not just submit a file each time it is modified? Answer: While developing scripts, most people frequently save and run to verify that what they have done so far works. Creating a new version each and every time a file changes creates many versions of a file, which in turn requires you to weed out the unwanted versions at some point.…   More »

Activating Your New Subscription

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 by June Alane Reif
[UPDATED: 8/15/2014] So, you just got a new subscription to a SAPIEN product. You've run the installer and you've launched the product and you were presented with a screen like this: Where do you go from here?  Well, since you already have a subscription number, you can pretty much ignore the buttons on the top right. Instead, focus on the section below the text "If you have a current subscription number, please enter or paste it into the field below." If you DO NOT already have a SAPIEN account (this is not necessarily the same as your store account!), click…   More » New tools in my toolbox

Introducing SAPIEN’s VersionRecall 2014

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 by Alex Riedel
Version control is a necessity for most, if not all, software development teams. When you work with a large number of individuals plugging away at the same code you just need some mechanism to channel access and preserve previous known-good states. Version control systems have evolved from simple check-in/check-out systems like Microsoft’s Delta and later SourceSafe to cloud-based peer to peer systems like Subversion and Mercurial, just to name a few. They all share mechanisms intended for a team of people working on code. So quite naturally it contains lots of features and elements that are not necessary for…   More »
