Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free/Pro Ideas.
« on: April 07, 2014, 11:30:11 AM »
I am going to be making a new version of the Windows repair that will be a free/pro version.

The pro version will be a version with extra features and such you can buy while the free version will have all the current options that is already in the program.

Most important thing, all repairs in the program currently and all future repairs will remain free! I am not going to shoot myself in the foot by taking things away from my users!

So any ideas you post about to add to the pro side must not affect the free side of the program such as the repairs and current options.

So to make it clear one more time, nothing that is in the program currently is to be taken away from the free version.

So now that is covered, I need some freaking ideas for a pro version! lol

So what better way to come up with ideas then to ask the users who use it the most?

So here is what I would like from you, please post any and all ideas you have on what I can add to the program as a pro feature.

Please remember that I wont be able to add all the ideas that are requested, but will try my best to add the best ideas.

Also there will be no pop ups or nag screens in the free version asking people to upgrade to pro, I hate nag screens!

Current WR Pro Feature Ideas:

Code: [Select]
System tray monitor, can have it set to monitor specified services, reg keys and files.
System tray monitor can also auto delete temp files that are over so many hours old.
Have updates download and install without having to redownload the program.
System tray monitor, have option to run a repair quickly from the menu or even by set keys on the key board.
Allow custom add ons.

Save what repairs or tweaks you did on 1 PC and transfer them to another computer to do the same tweaks maybe. Like the ability to save the information to a file that the program reads then load the file on the other computer.
 (I feel like it already saves the tweaks with the portable version ;-; )

Could use the program as a way of adjusting services like you can in the msconfig, but gives explanation to what the service will affect.


This is harder then I thought it would be.   :confused:

edit- Or have error codes listed on the program, for blue screens, or exception errors.. And maybe the causes or fixes for them.

True, it saves the current selected repairs in the settings.ini file. But what about being able to make your own predefined chosen repairs that you could load up? Granted I always just run all the repairs, others may like to be able to have certain repairs for certain actions, and then maybe save that list for later use.

Right now you can edit the service txt file to change startup. But what about maybe some extra tweaks or commands that the users puts in that are ran after all the repairs are, like tweaking the computer after since so many things are put back to default?

How do those sound?

Ok good I will add it to the list.

Which do you think would be better, and option to run a file after the repairs are done (So a user can run anything, even bat files that can do the tweaks they want) or just an option to run a custom bat, vbs or reg file?

This thing more wonderful to have a professional and a free copy! However I would suggest the following:
If you want help with:

Do you want to help with the new version 3 of your products in order to translate into my native language? If so, I can help, however, and I'm ready for the new version 3! Lol  :smiley: :wink:
 
Also I would suggest adding a bar "About" to put your rights and the name of the developer on your program. To prevent the theft of your business!  :artist:

In the new version 3 should have an option for automatic update for professional version. "No need anymore to download the update file manually!  :smiley:

Logo and new interface of the program and this will be more wonderful if we already have it....  :wink:

Logos designed by me!  :wink: :shy:

Keep the feedback coming.

Now that v2.6.0 is done I am going to be updating my other programs with the new color changing options.

So while I work on those I will be waiting for more feedback on the pro idea.

I am in no rush to put out a pro/free just yet. Want to take my time and make sure it is done right :-D

As I said in the first post, any and all repairs will always stay free, even new repairs down the road :-)

- Give the PRO user a list in which they select which tasks from WR need to be done and then run those tasks automatically. e.g. CHKDSK, Systemfile check, backing up registry, system restore points & repairs. What ever is possible & what you like. That would be a TRUE PRO version. Automate as much as possible. Now the user has to (manually) take those steps.
- Add a check (e.g. flashing screen) when the repairs take too long to complete (after say 30, 40, 50, ........ minutes).
- Add an option to automatically open a word processor to view the main log file after running.
- add a option to let the user run his/her own MSDOS script.

How about adding a .dll tool to add missing .dll files that would help if not already in your software.

Hello All,

I am new to the forum but a long time user of the programs on both of Shane's sites.

Since a Pro version would most likely appeal to those who are more comfortable dealing with Windows at all levels, I think including the Advanced System Tweaker functionality would make the Pro version even more useful to those types of users. This is almost a necessity since many of the "repairs" may partially or wholly undo many of the "tweaks" already applied.
