HD Tune Pro 5.75 Bug
« on: October 30, 2019, 06:17:34 pm »
I have HD Tune Pro 5.75 installed on my computer., which is the latest version.  Yesterday I ran UCheck and it reported that I needed to update the version to 5.75, which I already had.  I decided to let UCheck go ahead just to see what would happen.  It installed the free version of HDTune.  I did not make note of the version number, but I remember that is was some subversion of Version 2.  I uninstalled the free version.

Today I ran UCheck again and again it told me I needed to update HD Tune Pro to version 5.7.5, which I already have.  I told it UCheck to skip this update, and it responded that it had successfully added an exclusion, which worries me because there is a menu item about "Exclude Software" and it was not my intention to exclude HD Tune Pro updates, but only to skip "updating" it in that UCheck session.

I have attached the relevant screen shots for your information.

Thank you and have a great day.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for reporting this.

The issue lies in the fact that UCheck is currently unable to differentiate between the free and pro versions of HD Tune. That's why it installed the free version, ignoring the version number. We will fix this as soon as possible.

Regarding your second question, "skipping" an update is permanent, that's why it appeared in the "Exclude Software" section.
If you want to temporary skip it, please uncheck the matching checkbox.

I will keep you updated about the issue.
Have a great day, too.

Regards.

Curzon:

As always, thank you for your prompt response and explanation about what skipping an update does.  Much appreciated.

Have a great day.
