Well I accidentally sent this before completing my thought. The plugin is not available as a standard installable plugin I can only be added to a new version of RDi by reinstalling it. It installs into the Programs Files(x86) folder, which is not available for those that do not have admin rights on their system.

I do have problems with their Spooled Files plugin. It stopped working for me and I have yet to find a reason why, so I abandoned it for iSphere since iSphere can do all the same features the RSE Extensions did.


Thanks, Matt

Softlanding's Web site where you obtain its plugin in binary installable form has not been updated past RDi 7.5. Its not available as a stand




Thanks, Matt

Brian,

May you please let me know what kind of issues you had? I am curious about it, because I want to better understand where Softlanding support is going to.

My personal opinion is that Softlanding support got really worse when Softlanding was taken over by Unicom.

Regards,

Thomas.

“FYI, ever since I went to 9.0 and 9.1 I had been having issues getting the Softlanding Spooled File plugin to work (open the item in the text editor) but your tool has always worked for me in that regard, so now I am exclusively an iSphere user and fan. It looks like Softlanding is not maintaining their product but your are. Plus I prefer the install and update interface for iSphere than Softlanding's.”

I have to concur with Matt, Frank and the rest of the team at Task Force IT are doing a fantastic job with the, (free!!) iSphere tools. Looking down the list of Ideas for Improvement:

http://sourceforge.net/p/isphere/wiki/IdeasForImprovments/

suggests there are more goodies on the way. With iSphere likely to incorporate a Data Area editor, the ONLY thing that Softlanding’s RSE Exrtensions has which still makes it useful is the Messages Subsystem.

I may be speaking out of turn here, but if the RSE Extensions are not being maintained and enhanced, would it be possible for iSphere to adopt the Messages Subsystem of RSE Extensions? Would there be a demand for this within the RDi community?

(I would certainly appreciate a simpler and more consistent install
process that a single plug-in would provide. It does become slightly
irritating having to complete multiple software installs, following
different procedures for different tools.)

Brian.
