I just released the latest update to Digital Rockhound’s Companion Version 3.0.5
This update is large in size and features.
When the DRC update is run, it will download .net 4.00 and crystal reports 2011 as needed if these libraries are not found on your computer. On a decent broadband connection you can expect the update to take 20-30 minutes to download install. The good news is that .net 4.00 and crystal reports update will only be ever installed once.
