    Re: System Information for Windows update

    Hi Joe,
    I went to that link you supplied but it only appeared to have information for the program.
    I didn't see any obvious download link?

    System Information for Windows update

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by joeperez on 12-Jul-05 14:04. corrected URL)</P>The <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala tool has been updated to version 1.51 build 582. Use the integrated updater or download from the site. No install needed just download and run. Nice tool to have on a CD/DVD/USB drive. This is from the history page:

    V1.51 Build 582
    Fixed Storage module


    V1.51 Build 581
    Added support for Windows Media Center and Tablet PC
    Enhanced Devices module. It displays files used by each device.
    New Storage module.
    Changed Eureka! module. McAfee VirusScan doesn't detect SIW as PWCrack-Finder.

    Bob,

    Thanks. I changed the URL so it should be ok. Guess it depends on how you get to the page. I always use the integrated updater so the URL is just whatever I have saved or find in Google.

    Re: System Information for Windows update

    Actually, there was a problem with the information displayed in the "Storage" section and after working with a number of people, Gabriel, the author has updated the program to version 1.52.587 (beta/debug). I'm not sure if this new build has been released to the public or not without the debug module included, but here is a link to grab it: http://tops.dns2go.com/beta/siw.exe

    This "debug" version creates a file named and located here: C:SIW.TRC. It is very small so there's no worries that a huge additional file is added. This file is created for the purpose of sending Gabriel relevant information so he can correct suspected problems. It is safe to delete if so desired.

    Re: System Information for Windows update

    Thanks, Jeff. I found that problem on 1.51 on cycling through all possibile options. Once encountered nothing ever got displayed again, until a restart of SIW.

    The 1.52 version doesn't exhibit that problem...

    Re: System Information for Windows update

    Thanks for confirming that Joe. At the same time that I received a notification of your reply, I also received an e-mail from Gabriel telling me that he had uploaded the new build for public download (without the debug module, of course). Because of the lightening fast response to user input and fixing reported bugs, etc., I simply had to send him a donation. I would encourage those of you who find this program of value to do likewise so that Gabriel will be encouraged to continue its development and offer it as freeware for everyone to use and enjoy. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15> You can do that easily but clicking the donation link under the Help menu.
