PassShed v2.0 (UPDATED)

Hi, all! Good to see you're back from the brief downtime.

Some of you might recall me sharing a small software application I've been working on called PassShed. If you haven't heard of it, it's a simple account/password manager I developed in C#.

I've released version 2.0 now, and I'd love for you guys to try it out. I re-coded the entire thing from scratch and gave the GUI a major overhaul. While I'm happy with the new improvements, I know it means more bugs and such. I'd love for any potential users to report bugs/annoyances/desired features to me. Here's the file:

[Current Release] Download Link (v2.0)

WARNING: You'll need to uninstall any previous versions of PassShed AND delete the C:\PassShed directory in order for version 2.0 to work. This is due to changes in the database structure and the way the installation process works. That means version 2.0 won't import your old accounts. However, if you do have a current version of PassShed installed, you will use the same master password to log in.

System Requirements
  • XP/Vista/7/8
  • .NET Framework 3.5 or above (This is included by default in 7/8. XP and Vista users will need to ensure their .NET Framework installation is upgraded to 3.5.)

Version 2.0
BluShark Media

PassShed was developed to be a simple, data-driven 
solution for managing user accounts and passwords.

====Known Bugs/Issues=======================
- All bugs are currently in hiding; please report any

Minor Issues/Annoyances:
- Currently subject to users

- When inserting, updating, or deleting a record, the Shed will always 
  navigate back to the first record (currently attempting a work-around)

  the Shed does not navigate to category X (currently attempting a work-around)
