Hey Alexander,

Where`s the forum announcement? I missed the new beta <g> I autotrack webpage changes to the forum listing. Sergey sent an emailed download URL as well for his beta so I missed your release on the same day.

My small network should be up for the weekend, though I don`t see you`ve done any networking updates.

In the meantime there appears a small issue during installation with ZoneAlarm - zonelabs.com running. I selected the option to launch DW but only a gap showed in the system tray, a double click of the gap creates a system error and XP requests to report the error, I`ve not seen this with other programs.
I restarted start/programs/DW and edited the options, zonealarm them asked for DW permission to access the network and once accepted the icon appeared. I assume that the DW cfg was empty and guess that some included default settings will let things proceed smoothly.

I`m playing with the improved duplicate file search but it will take time to finish as there are many thousands of files. <g>

Is there anything that needs close checking ? It`s not immediately clear from the history what the detailed improvements are that you have made.....

Thanks for a new version to play!

<g>
Forum announces isn`t our usual practice.
It is better to monitor the product details page.

There is a get network driver size bugfix.

Thank you for your report.
We will try to fix this problem ASAP.

We made several internal and UI improvements. Unfortunately, there is no special test to find possible problems. Please use DW as usual and report about found problems.
Thank you for your help.
