The one program I was concerned about not working under Windows 7 x64 was Netlimiter
. I've always hated the versions above 1.3 so on a whim I decided to ignore the "This software has known compatibility issues" warning and install it, after reading that 1.3 doesn't use device drivers
like the newer versions.
I installed as Administrator into the Program Files (x86) folder. Before rebooting I ran it as Admin just to see if it would work. It did so I did a reboot and it's been running fine.
Seems to throttle fine, adjusting bandwidth on the fly works a treat as well.
The only tiny glitch I've come across so far is once when I tried adding more schedules to utorrent it was a little flaky.
I set up the rules and they worked. When I went to add more about an hour ago it didn't add the rule to the list no matter how many times I tried. However when I rebooted all the attempts showed up meaning that it was adding the schedules but not showing them in the list which is good in that it works but would be nice if it was consistent.
So far no BSOD or any major problems. Seeing as I rarely need to alter or add schedules once they're in place, it's occasional flakiness in that area is something I can live with.
The upside is Netlimiter 1.3 works on Windows 7 x64 !!
Thought I'd post this to let others know who like the program but aren't happy with the newer versions.
