Re: Using %1 as share name unsigned $

5 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Sorry I am not quite sure if your question relates to version 8. If so, we have just discovered that custom applications using the %1 parameter didn't work correctly. Download the latest build here and applications that refer to %1 should work fine:

Re: Network Scanner version 8.0

It could be a bug, or you could be missing something. It is hard to tell without seeing a screen shot from your computer. Normally you need to choose Identify by from the drop-down list, then click Columns and choose what columns you want to use as the key. Those columns must be enabled and visible to show up in this dialog:

Re: Inactive devices are displayed when they should not be

5 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

It usually happens when you scan a different subnet and ARP ping is enabled. In some networks the router responds to such ARP queries with its own MAC address (because ARP requests do not cross subnet boundaries). This misleads the application into thinking that all devices are online, and they will all have the same MAC address. Is this what you are seeing?

Network Scanner version 8: User feedback

6 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Following several months of work, we are happy to announce Network Scanner v8.0. Its main theme is macOS support. Now both macOS and Windows versions are built from the same code and share more features. There aren't many new features for the Windows version other than a new option to use built-in SMB library instead of the Windows implementation. Under the hood, however, the application has u

That would be because you are using a crack or counterfeit licence key. To fix this, you would obviously need to purchase a valid licence key from us.

Re: Issues after updating macOS to Big Sur

6 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

We have released the new Network Scanner for macOS. Now its Windows and macOS versions are built from the same source code and share most of their functionality. The application should work well on both Windows and macOS systems, including Big Sur. Please download the latest version of Network Scanner for macOS, and share your feedback here or via our help desk.

Re: File spvve.sys crashes

6 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

We have received the dumps, but unfortunately they suggest there is defective memory in your PC (or memory controller, or other components). If you wish to test your memory, I recommend Prime95 tool, as the test you used before may not have found the issue. If you run Prime95 for a few hours and it reports no errors, then your PC is fine and the issue is somewhere else. You can also have a look

Re: How to use RAMDisk for suspended browser tab session data

6 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It is possible to redirect any folder to a RAM disk, but please bear in mind that RAM disks are volatile. Everything stored there will be gone after system shutdown. Having said that, if you wish to move some of the profile subfolders to the RAM Disk, you could create a symbolic link: Close your web-browser. Open an admin command prompt. CD to the browser's profile folder. Move the folder

Re: File spvve.sys crashes

That indeed looks like an issue with our driver. For further investigation, could you please send us all dump files from C:\Windows\Minidump for analysis? Please compress the files to a ZIP file and send it to us via our support centre. It will help further if you attach a screen shot of your RAM disk configuration and mention what version of the RAM Disk application you are using. Thank yo

Re: File spvve.sys crashes

6 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

If it crashes, it means the driver has run into a critical error. There can be a number of reasons, including faulty memory modules, conflict with other drivers, or a bug in our driver. There is unfortunately no easy fix or workaround for this. To be able to help, we need to know the RAM Disk version you are using, and get a crash dump. Alternatively you can run this WhoCrashed utility and post

Re: Version 2.1.3 is downloaded instead of 2.1.4 upgrade

Our apologies: there was a mistake while publishing the new version. The application files themselves were and are correct, and include the new functionality, but the version number wasn't updated upon release. This has just been fixed and files displaying the correct version 2.1.4 are now available for download from WiFi Guard page.

Thanks for sharing your discovery! It is however a mystery why Samsung Magician doesn't like removable disks.

Re: Samsung Magician 6.2.1 crashes

6 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

We have tested Samsung Magician 6.2.1 and our RAM Disk 4.2 and it worked fine, as shown on the screenshot below. If Samsung Magician crashes for you, it suggests the problem is in Samsung Magician. If it did not like something about a RAM disk, it should have skipped it instead of crashing (that is what the fix from 2013 you referred to did and still does). You could either contact Samsung a

Re: Using RAMdisk to increase SSD lifespan

6 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It sort of depends. Two facts are important here: Firstly, SSDs only have a limited number of writes. They can be read any number of times without degradation, so the goal is to reduce writing as much as possible. We published an article that outlines the most common ways of reducing writes to the physical disk: How to improve your computer performance and SSD life span with a RAM disk. Seco

Re: New release contains an older version of drivers

6 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Depending on how a new release is built, the version of its drivers may or may not match the version of the product. In this case, it happened simply because the drivers were built and signed before the RAM Disk version number was increased. This discrepancy does not affect anything in any way as the drivers are correct. Thank you for asking and posting this; someone else may have the same qu

Re: Statistics numbers are too high

Sorry I am not sure where this discrepancy comes from, but if I may suggest, try our NetGenius tool. It is our latest product, built upon a more modern technology compared to NetWorx, and many customers reported that they have replaced NetWorx with NetGenius.

Re: Service conflict with VPN

7 months ago, by Andrew in NetGenius Forum

NetGenius and VPN clients often conflict with each other, as they are based on the same principle. Both VPN clients and NetGenius attempt to capture Internet traffic for processing, so when one application succeeds in doing so, the other one usually fails. For example, if NetGenius captures Internet traffic first before a VPN client does, the VPN client may not see any data and disconnect. Lik

Re: Issues after updating macOS to Big Sur

Thank you guys, we are currently testing and fixing things in both Windows and macOS versions. They are now built from the same source code, and are almost identical, except for some features that use Windows-only functionality and naturally not present in the macOS version. Here is a couple of screen shots of what it looks like on both systems:

Re: How change the "since" date in usage report

7 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

I am afraid not. The Since report always starts at the earliest recorded date. If you want something else there, choose This Year, Last Year or Last Month. You can also set the Month begins on parameter to 10 in the Advanced Settings, so that your monthly reports begins on that date.

Re: How change the "since" date in usage report

For deleting all the old dates up until 2020-12-10, try this with the less-than condition: DELETE FROM usage WHERE date('1899-12-30', '+' || DAY || ' days') < '2020-12-10'

There is no need to search for the value. Simply copy and paste the above SQL query (File - New SQL in the main menu) and execute it (Execute - Execute SQL in the main menu).

Re: Scan of Windows 10 machines is not returning HostName

I would suggest Wireshark, to see what name resolution requests are sent and what (if any) responses are received. Troubleshooting the issue might require solid knowledge of networking and protocols.

Re: Scan of Windows 10 machines is not returning HostName

7 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

It's hard to tell why, as Windows supports several ways of resolving IP addresses back to domain names. You can try different name resolution methods under Options - Additional - Resolve host names. If that doesn't help, try opening a command prompt and typing tracert x.x.x.x where x.x.x.x is the IP address whose host name you want. Normally it would display the host name in the firs

Re: NNTP/NNTPS traffic is wrongly attributed to antivirus

It looks like it filters POP, SMTP, IMAP and NNTP as mail. Try turning off the Mail Shield and see if it helps.

Re: NNTP/NNTPS traffic is wrongly attributed to antivirus

7 months ago, by Andrew in NetGenius Forum

Unfortunately we can't do anything about it. This happens because your antivirus actively intercepts and filters your network traffic: it captures traffic from applications, filters it for malware etc, and then forwards it further as its own. This causes NetGenius to see that traffic as coming from the antivirus, because the antivirus captures it before NetGenius can. This increases the securit

Re: Virtual Machine installation freezes

7 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Sorry, it is hard to say what went wrong. The fact that it seemingly froze suggests that Windows was unable to install the driver or verify its digital signature. More information can be found in SetupAPI.dev.log as explained by Microsoft. In general, our RAM Disk works on any VMs, but there seems to be an issue with your system. Please check the C:\Windows\INF\SetupAPI.dev.log file for possibl

Re: How to stop the resetting of Chrome and Edge cache relocation

7 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It looks like occasionally a new version of Chrome/Edge deletes the symbolic link and re-creates a regular cache directory. I am not quite sure why they are doing that though, maybe because their cache format changes from version to version. One way to deal with this would to run the Cache Relocator periodically to check if the redirection is in place. Otherwise, you can edit the shortcut that

Sorry this doesn't seem to be reproducible: I have created two users A and B. I logged in as A, installed NetWorx and logged out. I logged in as B and shutdown Windows. Everything worked as expected. Are you getting an error message or something else that can help to identify the issue?
