ViEmu 3.7.5: VS 2017, new SQL Server 2016 installer, and Word&Outlook high-DPI support

Happy new year! To celebrate, I have just uploaded ViEmu 3.7.5, in its Visual Studio, SQL Server 2016 and Word & Outlook editions. Here are the changes:

  • Visual Studio 2017 RC is supported. This may even work right out of the box with the final VS2017 release, but if not, I will revise it when VS2017 is out.
  • Having SQL Server 2016 Management Studio version 16.5 and VS2017 RC installed side by side made the ViEmu/SQL 2016 VSIX not install, so I built a new MSI-based EXE installer.
  • The command line and output “overlay” windows in ViEmu for Word and Outlook were too small in high-DPI displays, rendering text hard to read. Now they get the right size for the active DPI setting.

That’s all. You can download them from the main download buttons at, and their installers will upgrade your current version. You need active support as of January 1st 2017, head over to the Customer Area if you need to renew it.

(BTW, this comes after ViEmu for Xcode 3.7.1, which I published a few weeks ago without announcement, providing compatibility with the latest Xcode 8.2.)

Hope you enjoy it all!
