Looking for contract work

February 25th, 2016

I am actively looking for contract work.

I have been working with Clarion for 20+ years, including extensive work writing templates and classes. I have over 12 years experience working with SQL databases, including SQL Anywhere , mySQL and MSSQL. I'm happy to help solve problems that may take only a few hours, work on long-term projects, or anything in between!

For more information please visit our Icetips Solutions website. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Build Automator 6.2.1359

February 24th, 2016

We have released version 6.2 of Build Automator. This build has improved Clarion 10 support and fixes to the {#INCLUDE} statement which allows you to include files when using the "Write Text to File" action. Please visit our Build Automator website to download the latest build or you can use the "Check for Update" feature in the software.

New files and articles from PAR2

September 8, 2015

Some time ago Steve Parker decided to retire from maintaining the PAR2 site, which has been a great source for articles and downloads for the past 15+ years! He offered to me to take the articles and downloads and integrate them into Icetips which I have now done.

There are currently over 1,000 new articles in our articles database and over 500 new files to download.

Solo Subscriptions

All Icetips products are now available as Solo Subscriptions.

Solo prices

Gold-level products are $99 for the initial Solo Subscription, and $49 to renew. Silver-level products are $49 for the initial Solo Subscription, and $25 to renew. These prices are for annually recurring subscriptions.


If you buy a Solo Subscription and want to upgrade to a Gold or Silver Subscription later, you'll pay only the difference between the subscription prices (adjusted for time used, if applicable).

Gold & Silver Subscriptions

Get a bunch of Clarion tools, at a deeply reduced price, with an Icetips Gold or Silver Subscription.

You get a whole lot of software, unlimited tech support, software updates, and sometimes new Clarion tools, all for one low price.

For more information, please see the Gold Subscription, Silver Subscription or Compare pages.

All of this is done with a mouse click using Build Automator!

We started with Build Automator in 2008.

I have got to say it's some of the best money we have ever spent. Period.

- Rick Smith, 2010

Build Automator made my life sheer joy. Once an app is configured - regardless of Clarion version, even mixed - you can simply run Build Automator and all is good. You can make backups before the compile, after the compile and copy to Test/Release, whatever. Very flexible. Multi-Dll is a doddle.
