NetUpdate control for measured connections

Recommended Posts

Dear AIDA64 developers:

 

As you know, Windows 8 allows to set certain connections as measured, which helps to control network usage preventing things such as automatic device drivers downloading.

It would be great if AIDA64 could be configured to disable NetUpdate automatic checking when the user is connected with a connection of that type. Obviously, this option should only be available when running AIDA64 on Windows 8 and perhaps Windows Server 2012.

 

Thanks a lot for this great software!

AIDA64 uses standard Windows internert access API (wininet.dll) to download updates information and update packages using HTTP protocol.  It uses standard Windows proxy configuration, but beyond that it has no control over the actual network adapter, network layer or network route Windows picks to download the necessary files from AIDA64 servers.  So I'm afraid currently we cannot limit AIDA64 NetUpdate to specific network connections.

 


Regards,

Fiery

      Dear AIDA64 dev team:
       
      Windows 8 has a new feature called quick start; it consists on saving basic system info in cache to speed up the startup, meaning that when shuting down Windows closes (most of) the programs but the rest remains as if no restart was done.
      When this is enabled (by default it is turned on), AIDA64 UpTime page will provide wrong information, because it will only be aware of cases where the user chooses the Restart option.
       
      It would be nice if you could add a warning to the end on this page, something such as Uptime data in Windows 8 may be inacurate due to a default setting, or just ending in acurate. If a user wants to know why, he/she could see an FAQ entry explaining the cause, like the one about DMI data.
       
      Thanks!
