OVERLAPS for Microsoft LAPS Update 2.1.0

We have released a rollup update for OVERLAPS which consolidates all of the hotfixes released since version 2.0 was released. For a full change log please continue reading. Otherwise you can download the update from your Download page on the OVERLAPS website.

All updates are completely standalone and do not require each previous update to be installed first, so you can jump straight to version 2.1 regardless of your currently installed version.
