Now is the time to update to the Prof-UIS MFC C++ revision 126.96.36.199 library. It has been tested by many of our users and most of the kinks have been worked out. Your App will look great with one of the new Prof-UIS Themes. The Themes are really sharp, crisp, bright and cheery. Send us an email with your product in one of our new Themes. We would love to see it.
Now that Microsoft has included the MBCS in Visual Studio 2015 its time to update with Prof-UIS 188.8.131.52, Windows 10, and Visual Studio 2015. Download your copy now!
We have started a blog, called TechBlog at http://techblog.proflibs.com. This is a blog for all of our coding products.
Release 184.108.40.206 updates and improvements are:
- The 200 percent Scaling option was tested and activated.
- There were a number of problems reported that are resolved by resetting the registry. These problems occur when the Prof-UIS library revision or when the App scaling changes. In our ProfBlog we show an example of the code to resolve this problem. All of the Samples now contain this code.
- Another ProfBlog entry provides the suggested coding change to activate automatic menu scaling.
- We will be providing coding updates and examples of coding practices in the TechBlog.
- We have readjusted the Tab colors for Office 13 and Windows 8 Themes for more contrast.
- We have updated older projects; Visual Studio 2005, 2008.
- We have made several minor code improvements.
The updates at this stage are evenly split between library changes and information on how best to use the library.
You can find the entire list of changes on the Version History page.

Prof-UIS Website Updated
The www.Prof-UIS.com website has been updated to handle double opt-in email subscriptions. The subscriber logic has been re-coded. This will allows us to communicate more effectively with you. It will provide you with the information you need and not bother you with information you don't want.
Improved Prof-UIS Support Times, 2 days Average
The Prof-UIS support team is proud to announce that support response times are down to 2 days. However some time is lost in gathering sufficient information to solve the problems.
When turning in a support item remember to include:
* What version of the Library your are using
* The character type you are using.
* The mode, DLL or Library.
* The Operating System: Windows 7 ,8 etc.
* The Visual Studio Version Used.
* A description of the problem
* Screen shots if approprate.
Even with this information it maybe necessary to provide a demo project that illustrates the problem. Make the Demo using the Sample Projects if possible.
We will be dropping the 90 day maintenance offering due to the expected rate of change to the libraries during 2015. The libraries will remain backward compatible, but they will be expanded to meet the changing market conditions.
If you are a 90 day library support customer you should buy now, as this offer will go away December 1, 2014 or, with special permission Dec 31st for budgeting or corporate process considerations.
The MFC 3.020 release is about to enter the Beta mode. It will feature:
* Expanded Themes that greatly improved App Apearance.
* Several Maintenance Items.
* Slightly Improved Language RC's.
* Expanded older code compatibility, VS 2005 - VS 2008.
The Prof-UIS.com site has two additional sites that provide information and products. We are adding a tech blog called ProfBlog.info to these sites.
www.ProfLibs.com is the site where the Prof-UIS help and support blogs are moving.
www.CodeWizardsPro.com is home to the TSELLC Wizards. View CodeWizardsPro to see the wizards due for release. This next group of Wizards concentrates on Automatic Application Translations.
