Two Program Updates
Posted on: 03/02/2013 07:46 AM - Windows Repair (All in One) v1.9.11 Released.
and - Registry Backup v1.6.0 Released. - Windows Repair (All in One) v1.9.11

Improved "Repair Windows Update". On a very few machines the repair was unable to rename the pending.xml file. On vista and 7 this would cause the "installing update step 3 of 3" screen to never go away at boot up. By simply renaming the pending.xml file fixed this. Even though this was already part of the repair, if the file was in use at the time then it wasn't able to be renamed and the person would get stuck at the next boot. I am changed the repair to now remove any attributes from the file and set a secondary rename option directly in the registry to have windows rename the file at boot up. So now if the repair is unable to rename that file during the repair it will get rename at the next system boot. Hopefully this will now keep the "installing update step 3 of 3" screen from coming up and getting stuck. I was able to replicate this problem in Windows and the new repair fixed it in my testing.

Improved the "Repair Winsock & DNS Cache". The repair reset TCP which would also clear any static IP info set on the system. Per user request the program will now extract the static IP info, run the repair and then put the static IP info back. - Registry Backup v1.6.0

Windows vista, 7 and newer added a new registry hive to the system called Components. The program now supports this new registry hive.
