    SIW (System Information For Windows)-Home Edition

    When my friend opens SIW (Home Edition) on her XPSP3 laptop and checks for updates she is told there is an updated version available, and the program gives a link to the website where in theory the updated version can be downloaded from. However, neither I nor she can find any download link for the update on the website. I tried to register her for the SIW forum, but every time I succeeded in entering all the required information and clicked submit registration the web page "disappeared" and I had to click refresh and then enter the info again. This soon got too tedious, and I know from previous experience that the software maker, although he gives an email contact link, does not respond to emails about the free Home Edition.

    If someone can give me a link to the download for the latest version of the Home Edition I would be grateful. (I don't have access to the laptop at present, but the name of the latest version ended with z).

    Thanks and regards,
    Roy

    Hi Roy,

    From what I see on the site, the newest version is "SIW 2013 v4.4.0514 Home Edition (BETA) for Windows 8 x64" so I assume they're trying to capture a lost audience of W8 users.

    Roy, you might like to look at a (hardware-orientated) alternative to SIW, called HWiNFO.
