Introducing AD FastReporter 2023

Posted by Klavs on February 26, 2023 · 5 min read

Six years ago, we released the beta version of AD FastReporter, our first software tool designed to simplify the process of reporting and managing Active Directory. Since then, we have continued to improve our products, and today, we are excited to announce the latest updates to AD FastReporter.

Our journey from WinForms to WPF

AD FastReporter was initially built using .NET 4 framework with WinForms GUI. As time passed, we realized that we needed to upgrade to a more modern GUI. That's why we built our next product, NTFS Permissions Auditor, using the same .NET 4 framework but with a more modern WPF GUI. We quickly realized that WPF was the future, as it looked more modern and was much easier to maintain, with the ability to easily implement custom features.

However, converting from WinForms to WPF was no easy task, and time was limited. But we were determined to make it happen. After many long hours of hard work, we finally built AD FastReporter GUI from the ground up using WPF. Along the way, we added the ability for users to add their own fields and made other improvements to the architecture.

Introducing the Annual Subscription License Principle

From the start, we have offered perpetual licenses with unlimited updates and customer support. However, as our customer base has grown and our software has become more sophisticated, we found it increasingly difficult to invest more and expand the range of capabilities of AD FastReporter.

That's why we decided to switch to an annual subscription license principle. This will allow us to actively add new and expand existing functions, while still providing our customers with the highest level of service and support.

What does this mean for existing AD FastReporter license holders?

We want to reassure our loyal customers that you don't have to worry - we will keep our promise, and you will always have access to updates and customer support for life as before. To get your new license, simply fill out this form so we can identify you and send you a new product key that will work for AD FastReporter 2023.

If you want to support us and have the financial means, you can also purchase the new license here and start using AD FastReporter 2023 right away.

How will the new licenses work?

Those who purchase the new license with its key will be able to enter it into AD FastReporter 2023 and use all Pro functions for 1 year. After 1 year, Pro features will be disabled, but you can still use AD FastReporter Free features. You will need to purchase the Pro 1 year license again to continue using all Pro features.

The long-awaited Trial license option

We have received numerous requests over the years from people who wanted to try the Pro features, but we were unable to offer a trial license because our previous perpetual licensing model didn't allow for it. But now, we are excited to announce that we have built in a very good trial license functionality and can quickly and easily create trial licenses. We encourage you to try the new AD FastReporter 2023, write us emails to let us know how you like it, and provide feedback on what we can improve.

Our commitment to providing the best service

As a one-person company, I understand the importance of delivering top-quality software and providing exceptional customer service. I am committed to ensuring that AD FastReporter continues to be a valuable tool for our customers, and I appreciate your continued support and feedback.

How to get and try the new AD FastReporter 2023?

Because AD FastReporter is so popular, it is given its own domain, now you can find it even easier -

In conclusion

I hope this post has given you a better understanding of the changes we have made to AD FastReporter and how they will affect you. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible service,
