Release Notes

Finally, we have a real packaged build! If you had been putting off trying Malevich, you should wait no more.

Disclaimer: Malevich bits are stable, but setup is at an early stage. I've done limited testing, but do be very careful if you use this build to upgrade an existing installation: backup everything! It can be destructive.

(1) After you install the MSI, click on "Configure Malevich" link on the desktop. The MSI is just a file wrapper - the real setup us done via this configuration program. Likewise, you have to run this program on upgrade and before you uninstall it. The configurator copies all Malevich bits to different location from the Program Files folder where MSI unwraps, so to affect the running bits Malevich you must run the configurator.

(2) If the installer can not detect an instance of SQL Server running on your computer, ensure that SQL Browser service is running, and that it comes from SQL Server 2008 (SQL 10) installation. This is important if you have a version of SQL 2005 on the same machine (which you would if you have Visual Studio 2008 on it).

(3) If the installation fails at the database creation step, please run the following command in the CMD prompt:
reg add HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0
See this for more details: This will be handled by the installer in the newer releases.

(4) Please so not enter bugs as reviews! I cannot respond to reviews. Either enter an issue in the Issue Tracker, or a discussion under Discussions. This way I can help you debug it.

Tested configurations: Windows Server 2008 + SQL Server 2008 x86 and x64. The setup will not work on Server 2003. It also does not support EWS 2007 - if you plan to run in this mode, you will have to configure notifier post-factum.

Reviews for this release

I can't pass configuration. It asks for mail notification parameters infinitely (stmp server, domain, alias). I enter them, it sends email, ask whatever I got an email ("Yes/No"). I say "Yes", but it begins asking again.
