CopyMove 2013 - V3.9.0 released
Friday, February 19, 2016

We are glad to announce the first public CopyMove 2013 maintenance release of the year. It features improved support for large document libraries and improved support for import of many documents from large ZIP files. All changes since version 3.8.0 include:

  • Added support for chunked upload of large ZIP files in the Import dialog.
  • Added new option on the CopyMove settings page to disable and check options on the Copy and Move dialog pages.
  • Added support for preserving values on read-only fields.
  • Added localized satellite assemblies to the OEM version.
  • Improved support for large document libraries and lists. CopyMove could earlier fail with a throttling exception.
  • Canceling CopyMove dialogs no longer refreshes the page clearing the current selection of list items.
  • Copying a document without versions included to a document library with minor versioning, will now yield a minor document version 0.1 regardless if the source document was a published major version or a draft minor version.
  • Fixed error 'Folder creation is not allowed in the destination folder' when copying/moving a folder to list with custom folder content types and where folder creation is disabled.
  • Fixed error 'List not found' when accessing CopyMove from a document library or list shown in a Web Part from another SharePoint web site.
  • Fixed error 'System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object' when copying/moving a document set to another document library with empty required fields on the document set content type.
  • Fixed error 'System.UnauthorizedAccessException' when attempting to access the SharePoint SystemAccount user.
  • Fixed error 'Column _vti_ItemDeclaredRecord does not exist' when moving a record to another document library where records management is not enabled.
  • Fixed JavaScript error 'Invalid calling object' with the knockout.min.js library in IE9 compatibility view.
  • Fixed issue where the new JavaScript tree did not load on the top level SharePoint root site.
  • Fixed localization issue in the OEM version where UI texts were always loaded from the English resources.
  • Fixed access denied error when moving items with the PowerShell command Move-SPPItem.
  • Fixed issue where the date picker control, in the required values dialog, did not work when copying or moving items across domains.
  • Fixed issue where the selected destination url would sometimes break with a double slash.
  • Fixed duplicate site collection issue in the destination tree where site collection nodes are loaded with a wildcard url expression.
  • Fixed issue where CopyMove did not enforce the list of allowed content types in a folder in a document set.

Important Upgrade Information

Upgrading from CopyMove version 3.6 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 2013 version 3.9 to the SharePoint server that hosts Central Administration.
  2. Uninstall CopyMove 2013 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. When prompted by the script, press ENTER to also install the CopyMove 2010 support solutions. Otherwise press ESC.
  7. Wait for the install to complete.
  8. Done.

The reinstall procedure is necessary as we have recently also introduced some structural changes in the deployment. Hereafter, it will again be possible to upgrade the CopyMove WSP solutions using the Upgrade-CopyMove.cmd script.


The new version of CopyMove 2013 is available for download from the CopyMove 2013 Download page.
