Version history for NirSoft NK2Edit (portable)

<<Back to software description

Changes for v3.20 - v3.25

  • Added 'Import From Message Store' option under the File menu, which loads the AutoComplete data directly from the message store (PST file or Exchange server) of the current Outlook profile. (This option is the opposite of 'Export To Message Store')
  • You can now use the /LogFile command-line option without any other command (For creating a log file while using the GUI)
  • Version 3.21
  • The search/replace records are now marked with a darker color. It's also possible to set the search/replace text/background colors from the .cfg file (SearchReplaceBackColor and SearchReplaceTextColor values)

Changes for v3.08 - v3.20

  • Added new option: 'EX Records AutoFill - Drop Trailing Numbers'. If this option is turned on while NK2Edit automatically fills the 'Search String' and 'Drop-Down Name' fields of MS-Exchange record, trailing numbers are removed from the user name. For example, if the email string is "/o=First Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=John Doe234", the 'Search String' field set by NK2Edit will be 'John Doe' instead of 'John Doe234'.
  • Added 2 new optional parameters to the Add command of NK2Edit scripts: 'Drop-Down Name' and 'Search String'. For example:
  • Add "EX" "/o=First Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=John Doe1" "John Doe" 0 "John Doe " "John Doe"

Changes for v2.96 - v3.08

Changes for v2.80 - v2.81

  • Added /SkipCommandLineNoProfiles command-line option. If it's set to 1, then the /script, /script_express, and /export_to_message_store commands will not do anything if there are no Outlook profiles on the computer you run it, for example:

Changes for v2.76 - v2.77

  • Added /WarnIfOutlookRunning command-line option. You can use it with /script , /script_express , and other command-line option to warn the user if Outlook is running.
  • Added /TimestampBackup command-line option. You can use it with /script , /script_express , and other command-line option to create a separated backup every time that the command-line is executed. The backup filename is generated with a timestamp, for example: 1.nk2.20130813111927.NK2Edit.bak

Changes for v2.71 - v2.72

  • Added option to change the characters encoding of the files generated by the 'Export Selected Items' option and by the export command-line options (/stab, /scomma, /shtml and so on...) - UTF-8, UTF-16, or Ascii
  • You can also change the characters encoding from command-line by using the /ExportCharEncoding command-line option. For example, in order to export all AutoComplete items to csv file with UTF-8 encoding:
  • NK2Edit.exe /ExportCharEncoding 1 /scomma "simple.csv"
  • Simple CSV File - Changed the default encoding to UTF8 and removed space characters, so this file will be opened properly in Excel.

Changes for v2.70 - v2.71

Both executables (32-bit and 64-bit) share the same configuration file (nk2edit.cfg) if they are executed from nk2edit.exe
  • This package might be useful for you if you have mixed environment with some computers running Outlook 32-bit and some computers running Outlook 64-bit.

Changes for v2.56 - v2.57

  • Added 'RemoveLinkToProfile' action for using in NK2Edit scripts, for example:
  • If AddressType equal "SMTP" RemoveLinkToProfile

Changes for v2.55 - v2.56

  • Added 'Remove Link To Outlook Profile' option. This option is useful for SMTP records that are linked to specific Outlook profile (Linked To Profile = 'Yes') After using this option to remove the linkage to Outlook profile, you'll be able to safely copy the records into another AutoComplete file.

Changes for v2.53 - v2.55

  • Added 'EntryID' column.
  • Added 'Linked To Profile' column. If the value under this column is Yes, it means that the record is linked to a contact or address book item on your Outlook profile, and it'll stop working if you copy this record into another Outlook profile.

Changes for v2.52 - v2.53

  • You can now resize the 'Edit Record' window. Also, the last size and position of this window is saved to the config file, so this window is opened with the last size/position you chose.

  • if Weight LessThan 10 delete

Changes for v2.40 - v2.41

  • Added 'Use SMTP Address In AutoFill Feature' option (Under the Options menu). This feature affects the way that NK2Edit automatically fills the Drop-Down Name and the Search String of EX records. If it's turned on, NK2Edit will use the SMTP address to fill the Drop-Down Name and the Search String. If it's turned off, MK2Edit will use the Exchange account name, like in previous versions of NK2Edit. For example: If this option is turned on, the Drop-Down Name will be 'Nir Sofer '. If this option is turned off, the Drop-Down Name will be 'Nir Sofer '.

Changes for v2.38 - v2.40

  • Added 'Open Selected Address In Outlook' option (Under the File menu and the context menu). This option allows you to open the selected email address in Outlook. If this email address has an enrty inside the address books of your Outlook profile, this address book entry will be displayed. Otherwise, Outlook will open a simple dialog-box with the display name and email address.
