Abstract: Compatibility of the SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager and some third party software packages.
Problem: It is known that the bandwidth manager does not work together with the Kerio WinRoute Firewall and Sygate Personal Firewall. When running with the Kerio WinRoute Firewall the latter displays an error message IpSendExplorationalPacketReceived: Invalid tag .... When running with the Sygate Personal Firewall all network connections seem frozen. With WinGate various connectivity problem may occur.
Workaround: There is a special release of the SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager built with a different driver model.
If you are experiencing the above problems you should download and install one of the following packages: Standard or Lite
* It runs only on Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2003.
* Any previous installations must be removed before installing this release. System reboot is also a must.
* Backing up the bandwidth database (bwmsvc.db) is recommended before you remove the current installation.
Note: As of March 05, 2007 these packages were updated to v2.7.
