Change Log – What’s New
(compared to jv16 PowerTools 2017 build 220.127.116.117)Here is a complete list of bug fixes and improvements that we did since jv16 PowerTools 2017 – Version 18.104.22.1687 was released on Friday, December 16th, 2016:
- Fix: Using the Clean and SpeedUp My Computer can show an Access Violation error relating to StartupOptimizerFormUnit.
- Fix: Some modules of Clean and SpeedUp My Computer do not honor the Search Words feature.
- Fix: Clean and SpeedUp My Computer can display incorrectly formated data on screen. For example, if a registry entry contains value “C:\Program Files\Office\Office15\”, it could show the same value in the software’s user interface as “C:\Program Files (x64)\Office\Office15\” (notice the different path). This is purely a cosmetic issue.
- Fix: The software can behave unexpectedly in case it cannot write to its own installation directory. This can happen if an anti-virus or anti-malware product is blocking the software.
- Fix: The software may display an error message with “Cannot write to file” error if used in a computer that has more than three hard disk drives.
- Improvement: Clean and SpeedUp My Computer works now much faster.
- Improvement: Clean and SpeedUp My Computer can now detect more of specific types of registry errors.
- Improvement: When using the Delete On Reboot feature of the Directory Tool, it will now ask whether user wishes to restart the computer to remove the data. Before, this question was shown only when PowerTools was closed.
- Improvement: The Software Uninstaller can now detect installed software with greater accuracy.
- Improvement: Writing one’s name to the Newsletter signup box in the Quick Tutorial will automatically license the software, if the user owns a valid license.
- Improvement: Added a new tool to allow users to see what licenses they own for the product.
- Improvement: If an anti-virus software is detected, the Main Window no longer reminds user to add jv16 PowerTools to its white list. Instead, the reminder is shown if any tool window of the software is opened, thus reducing the number of possible messages at first PowerTools startup.
- Improvement: Contains updated translations for Chinese Traditional and Polish.
- Improvement: Contains new translation: Czech.
