Release Notes:

  • Uses PSF version v2024.02.04, plus a small patch for the next release, from the TimMangan branch.
  • Fix to ensure PSF dependencies are included when using the PsfTrace or FileRedirection Fixups.


This release is available immediately from the TMurgent site and will later be updated to Microsoft store.  PsfTooling is a free community tool. 

An up-to-date 4.5-minute video showing how to use it is below:


We remind you that PsfTooling is limited in what it can fix by the Microsoft MSIX Packaging Tool, which is used to generate the final package.  PsfTooling is estimated to improve application compatibility from roughly 30% without it to roughly 60% with it.  But this pales to using our advanced (but licensed) TMEditX which scored 82% in this year’s testing.
