eComStation Maintenance Tool 126.96.36.199 (beta)
April 10, 2007 by Chuck McKinnis
The eComStation Maintenance Tool 188.8.131.52 beta version is now available for download and installation. This release corrects some previous errors and is the first release designed to support eCS 2.0.
Please note that this and subsequent releases REQUIRE the eComStation Maintenance Tool Utilities 184.108.40.206 and WGet SSL support 220.127.116.11 for proper installation and maintenance. If the eComStation Maintenance Tool Utilities 18.104.22.168 and WGet w/SSL support 22.214.171.124 have been previously installed, you do not need to download and install them again.
Otherwise, you will need to download the base (ecsmt2194b1.exe), the utilities (ecsut2193.exe), and the WGet SSL support (ecswg11020.exe) to a common directory and execute the base package (ecsmt2194b1.exe) to install them with WarpIN.
After installing and executing this release, DO NOT attempt to revert to an earlier release.
