CopyMove 2010 - V2.7.0 released
Thursday, June 22, 2017

This is a big release that aligns CopyMove 2010 with all the new features and improvements made to CopyMove 2013 and CopyMove 2016 over the past few years. We highly recommend all CopyMove 2010 customers to upgrade.

All significant changes since version 2.6.4 are summarized in the change log below:

  • Complete overhaul and upgrade of the CopyMove Web UI.

  • Added right-click context menu to the CopyMove destination tree.

  • The Include version history check box is now hidden when versioning is not enabled in the context list.

Important Upgrade Information

Upgrading from CopyMove version 2.6.4 or earlier will require a complete reinstall of the CopyMove WSP solution packages. That is, they cannot be upgraded using the Upgrade-CopyMove.cmd script. The reinstall is completely safe and all CopyMove settings will remain in place. Please follow this procedure to upgrade:

  1. Download and unzip CopyMove 2010 version 3.7.0 to the SharePoint server that hosts Central Administration.
  2. Uninstall CopyMove 2010 using the Uninstall-CopyMove.cmd script.
  3. Wait for the uninstall to complete.
  4. Reset IIS and the SharePoint timer service (SPTimerV4) on all SharePoint servers in the farm. The CopyMove script Reset-AllServers.cmd can help do this without further effort.
  5. Install the new version using the Install-CopyMove.cmd script.
  6. Wait for the install to complete.
  7. Done.

The reinstall procedure is necessary as the new version introduces some structural changes in the deployment. Changes that would not be handled correctly by upgrading the WSP solutions. After the reinstall, it will again be possible to upgrade the CopyMove WSP solutions using the Upgrade-CopyMove.cmd script.

Feature Highlights

The CopyMove ribbon menu group has been replaced with a single ribbon fly-out menu button. This reduces the HTML footprint of the CopyMove menu as it only loads when clicked. But more importanly, it takes up less screen real-estate in the crowded ribbon menu.

The CopyMove destination selection tree has been completely revamped and is now also featuring a right-click context menu.
