As previously communicated in a service announcement sent on January 17, 2018, a new version of Box Tools is coming! This new version requires system requirement changes to be made in order to have a seamless experience.  You can learn more about the new system requirements here.

 

In an effort to allow our customers to validate their system set up prior to the auto-update, we have made Box Tools v4 available for download through our Early Access Program (EAP).  To install and verify this build in your environment, please follow these steps:

 

  1. Ensure that you have made the appropriate system requirements updates found here.
  2. Download & Install the proper Box Tools v4 here.

 

All new Box Tools users will default to downloading the new version.  Existing users with Box Tools v3 will be auto-updated in mid March.

 

The builds linked to above support .NET Framework 4.0 and above.  In Mid-March when we begin the auto update process, if your environment is running .NET Framework 4.5.2, you will be automatically updated to a compatible Box Tools version.  The .NET Framework 4.5.2 compatible versions are available for download here.

 

Still have questions?  Feel free to reach out to our User Services Team.

In Box Drive v1.7, users now have the ability to Lock and Unlock files through our right-click context menu.   Files will be locked indefinitely until a user unlocks them. Drive's handling of locked files will remain unchanged from earlier versions.  

 

In addition, a new update experience is being released on Windows. Users will not see this new experience until updating to version 1.8 in the future. In this new experience, users will be alerted of new updates from a one-time system notification and the Box app menu icon will be badged. Updates will be driven by the user after they are available from the Search UI and gear icon context menu, shown below.

Additionally, this version now supports TLS 1.1+ and contains various bug fixes and scalability improvements to enhance our support of larger file trees and resolve performance regressions in v1.6.
