Where can I download MailBee.NET Objects updates and update my current installation?

You can add the latest version of MailBee.NET assembly to your project with NuGet package manager console:

Install-Package MailBee.NET

The latest version of MailBee.NET Objects setup program (includes the assemblies themselves and also the documentation, samples and tools) is available at:

http://www.afterlogic.com/download/MailBeeNetObjects.msi

The latest version of MailBee.NET assembly is also available at:

http://www.afterlogic.com/updates/mailbee_net.zip

The archive includes .NET 2.0/3.5 version (MailBee.NET.dll), .NET 4.0 version (MailBee.NET.4.dll), .NET 4.5+ version (MailBee.NET.45.dll), Mono, Xamarin iOS and Android versions. The generic .NET 2.0/3.5 version can still be used in .NET 4.0 and higher, it just doesn't include .NET 4.0 specific optimizations. However, only .NET 4.5 version supports async/await methods.

When you've downloaded MailBee.NET package installer MailBeeNetObjects.msi, the first thing to do is to close all applications which may use MailBee.NET. If Visual Studio .NET is running, please close it too. After that, you need to remove your existing MailBee.NET Objects installation. To remove existing version of the product, use Add / Remove Programs in Control Panel. Then, new version of MailBee.NET can easily be installed: just run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions.

Now, you have the new version of MailBee.NET Objects installed, but your applications powered by MailBee.NET Objects still reference to the old version. Thus, you should update references in the projects and rebuild the applications powered by MailBee.NET Objects.

For Visual Studio .NET projects, you should remove reference to MailBee.NET (open references of the project in Solution Explorer and remove reference to MailBee.NET), then add new one. Rebuild the project.

For non-Visual Studio .NET environment, you should manually replace MailBee.NET.dll file in the /bin subfolder of your application and rebuild the project. After installation of MailBee.NET package you can find MailBee.NET.dll file in installation folder (by default it is "C:\Program Files\MailBee.NET Objects" on 32-bit Windows or "C:\Program Files\MailBee.NET Objects (x86)" on 64-bit Windows).

From time to time, we release updates for BounceDatabase. You can download the latest version at:

and it should be extracted to C:/Program Files/MailBee.NET Objects/BounceDatabase directory so that existing files are overwritten.
