This version seems to be working well. Ran twice & both times completed with no freezing or crashing. :D
Initial setup however took at least 8 minutes on my PC.

First, it appears that this new version is not remembering "Never Show Again" items.
Second, as with the previous version, this new version is falsely detecting many valid shortcuts in the Start Menu as invalid. And it will not remember "Never Show Again"

And lastly, I decided to uninstall V4.2.0.1845 and re-install it totally fresh to see if that would correct the "Never Show Again". NOW it states that my 2 Platinum VIP licenses (lifetime) have been cancelled. So I am now dead in the water waiting for a response to my submitted support request on this license issue. :shock: :? :( :cry:

Which start menu shortcuts is your installation detecting a unneeded?

I 'm having the same problem with this latest build. It's Slow, it removes so called broken short cuts and you can't stop it .
I've now gone back to a version that works 4.1.0.1758. The new version is just total rubbish, the same as version 1811

Yeah, I went back to V4.2.0.1774 because of the issues with the latest version on my systems.

I updated to the latest version and lost my subscription. The program would say there's a problem with connecting the server.

Went back to V4.2.0.1774 and it found my subscription (despite having the same err message at the bottom of the page). Now it works OK.

Same problem here. I've upgraded to the latest version and it's in trial mode saying I have -0- days left to evaluate. Applying license throws an error that it can't connect to the server. I'm a lifetime license holder, and yes, I have jv16 PowerTools added to my firewall exceptions.

Add me to the list of users who believe this version is slower to launch and slower to run tasks than its predecessor.

If you save the License.dat file from the successful install of JV 16 & then paste it into the updated version it should show as activated.
I do this to recover my license after a clean install of Windows rather than entering the details.

Thank you, Virginia. Luckily I had a saved License.dat file from a previous version which I used to cut & paste into each new release of jv16 PowerTools. I wasn't aware that this method still worked since Macecraft implemented licensing via their server. I've been anxious to give this version a try. The last couple of versions gave me issues during the install process and stalled during the cleaning process. Version 4.2.0.1845 installed quickly with no issues and loads much more quickly. Hopefully, everything else will go smoothly.

I have JV16 Power Tools version 4.2.0.1845 loaded on my Windows 10 machine. When I try to run the "Speed and CleanUp My Computer" it never finishes the scan. I've let it run overnight and get the same result. It locks up the process and I have to kill the process to run it again. Right now it is non-functional on my machine. Any suggestions?

Good to hear the method worked, I did it that way as I could never remember the email address I used to register but since changing the address I can: I’ll still use the license.dat way though in future.
