February 2017 Release of MFCMAPI and MrMAPI

The February 2017 Release (build 17.0.17033.02) is live: http://mfcmapi.codeplex.com. In our last hardware refresh, I had a chance to get a Surface Book, which was awesome, except for all the high DPI problems it exposed in MFCMAPI. So I fixed a bunch of those. Lemme know if you find any more. I also fixed an…

The scenario this script targets is that you have a process, say Outlook.exe, which is crashing for a number of users, but you haven’t yet narrowed down a repro scenario. You’d…
