SPSD has enabled us to drop most of our custom scripts in favor of a more robust and reliable solution. I look forward to the next release!

This has been a very good help in a couple of recent projects. It is a very professional software and have been a real timesaver for me personally when administering deployments.

Opera does not support ClickOnce X
To install this application, save it and then open it. Opening it directly from Opera will not work correctly.
