    I recently downloaded and updated to Latest XRM Toolbox and Document Template Mover is “1.2016.8.2”.

    When I click on the plugin I’m getting below error:
    An error occured when trying to display this plugin: Unable to cast object of type ‘MsCrmTools.DocumentTemplatesMover.PluginControl’ to type ‘XrmToolBox.Extensibility.PluginControlBase’.

    Please help!

      I am receiving the same error as Kirubaa when loading the Document Template Mover:

      Unable to cast object of type ‘MsCrmTools.DocumentTemplatesMover.PluginControl’ to type ‘XrmToolBox.Extensibility.PluginControlBase’.

      Any help or update appreciated.

    I managed to move my templates correctly between environments. However, when I opened them I noticed that the tool has not updated the header parameters.
