Author danyakovt
EMS HiTech Company is very glad to announce the next version (2.8)
of QuickDesk -- The Best InterBase/FireBird Administration and
Development Tool.

You can download the latest version from

If you have already downloaded one of the earlier versions of EMS
QuickDesk, you can download the .exe file only (see URL above). Just
extract the archive and replace your old quickdesk.exe file.

What's new in version 2.8?

1. QuickDesk's saving/restoring options system was completely
rewritten. Now QuickDesk stores all the parameters in the Windows
registry. Due to this fact some new features and bugfixes are now

- Now QuickDesk works fine even if the user has no Windows admin
rights (actually we have successfully tested our software even under
GUEST account)

- There are no more problems with a terrible "Stream read error"
message. You will never get it anymore.

- There is no restriction for the number of QuickDesk copies,
running simultaneously: you can start two, three, four and more
QuickDesk copies at the same time. However it's possible to disable
this feature: please see the "Preferences" page in the Environment
Options dialog.

- All queries in the SQL Editor are numbered correctly now.

QuickDesk automatically updates your registered databases. All other
settings (query history, project view, options) must be updated

2. The new "Save Settings" wizard is implemented. Now it's very easy
to save all the QuickDesk options (or some of them) to a .reg file.
After that you can restore all the QuickDesk settings (registered
databases, query history, project information, plugins information,
etc) on another computer through one mouse click.

3. The "Test Data Generator" plugin is successfully improved. Now it
works fine with all InterBase/FireBird data types. Moreover, this
plugin now available in sources so you can use that code to develop
your own plugins.

4. A lot of improvements/bugfixes in the Backup/Restore Database
wizards, Export/Import wizards, Domain Editor, Blob Editor, SQL
Editor, SQL Builder, Visual Database Designer and in other modules.
Get the new version right now and check it all out yourself!
