Today’s release adds only one notable improvement to the custom apps download capabilities, which facilitates the download of AdwCleaner using the improved non-direct URL option. This was necessary when updating the custom apps package for this default app, as well as the Auslogics DD Portable which also needed a newer download URL. The default custom app […]
Fixed an issue where d7x failed to start with the “System Mode” d7x Startup configured (d7x Config > Behavior tab > Startup Behavior) when d7x was started without all of it’s resources already downloaded, which is always the case when deployed remotely via d7xRDT. One of the d7x Resources (d7xSvcWait.exe) is required for this mode […]

Please accept that I deeply regret any inconveniences you and others have experienced due to the upgrade failures. A corrupted archive file (containing the final part of the update to the current d7x “FastTrack” release) was replaced on our servers this morning (around 12 hours ago) which resolved the issue in our testing (using the same copies […]
d7II subscribers will notice their copy of d7II v3.6.86 (or earlier) now promotes that an update exists to v3.6.87 (there is no actual code change for this specific .exe version; the version number is incremented to silence d7II update notifications if used after this d7x release.)

fGet.exe is a tiny download utility designed for batch/scripting usage, which simply downloads the data from the specified url to a local file. fGet optionally supports referring URL spoofing and HTTP login with basic authentication. fGet.exe is tiny (currently 51.1kb, or 18.5kb zipped with standard compression) and requires no external dependencies for best portability.

Recent changes in JRT (an example custom app configuration distributed with d7II and the original d7 Premium) prompted a small but necessary fix in the 3rd Party Configs\JRT_Auto.cmd file which we use to manipulate the JRT.exe download/extraction and toi modify JRT’s GET.BAT file. This update will fix automation issues with JRT that since one of their […]
BootSafe is a FREE utility for restarting Windows into the ‘Safe Mode’ of your choice, and having been available and working well since 2012, it rarely requires an update. Still, today it received a nice update you may want to know about! Recently a user pointed out a digital certificate issue that just started occurring with the existing versions […]
I was recently made aware of a social media post several days ago by “Instant Housecall” (the remote support software with the first generation d7 integration agreement) which touted: Improvements to Auto PC Repair (remote d7) have been rolled out.
