This is only for x64 supported pcs. Most of the users have 32 bit. Could not install. Is there any way? There is no mention of it in the software page.

jraju,

Of course there is no way of installing and using
a 64-bit programme on a 32-bit PC

That is why the developer has written:
Please note: the software is compatible only with x64-bit systems

As with some other recent titles of the last week, it installed and registered easily enough. However, apparently it is not fully high-DPI aware, at least on my machine.

On my 3840x2160 pixel laptop a few aspects of the program appeared very tiny, while many others were jumbled on top of each other to the point of not seeing everything.

It was easily solved by right-clicking on one of the icons used to launch the application; then

select "Properties";

select the "Compatibility" tab;

under "Settings" click to place a checkmark in the box for "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by:";

from the little drop-down menu just below, select "System" (which worked best on my system -- if not for you, then try "System (Enhanced)" -- whichever ends up working better for your system);

click the "OK" button (or "Apply" then "OK" if you prefer -- it should not matter);

...and re-launch -- it should display much better.

Also, in "Options' be sure to look for and disable the automatic update setting that would likely result in later deactivation/unregistering actions.

Thanks, GOTD and Colasoft!

The license is provided for 1 year - it means that the software will stop working after the year or it will work but without an updates?

Eddie_M, I can not reach it either.

I recommend the server admin of the company to install some kind of network analyzer to figure out potential problems ..

What about a network or multiple PCs are in 32 bits? In the company there are positions that control control machines whose internal programs are incompatible with an OS 64. I still note that it is in industrial companies that the computer park is the most archaic, especially in terms of management of the park machining, handling, storage. It's not about changing only the PC, but the entire infrastructure. So is this a professional software for geek?
We talk about outdated system ... win 10 does exist in 32 bits?
I would abstain from voting on this one, no need personally of such soft, but the utility is it certain

I did read all of the posts and my conclusion is as follows:
a) Yes there are lots of network software that run on 32bit platform, but that is old and outdated, not lots of servers run it anymore.
b) 32bit system are limited to 3GB of memory access and therefore can not be called high performance servers.
c) To have a TRUE and fast server, you need to allocate separate DRAM pockets for each connection in order to create a TRUE dedicated server and therefore needs lots of memory and only way to accomplish that is to use 64GB and more of memory and only way to do it to use 64bit processors.
d) There is misconception that 32bit servers are as good as 64it servers, yes you can claim that if you have a very small network of 2-3 computers, after that the performance of 32bit system degrades very fast and after the 5th computer a bottleneck is created and becomes useless to have a network.
e) Try to stream HDTV on a network with 32bit OS and you will come to the same conclusion, 32bit can not handle it, unless you want to see buffering in progress every 2 seconds.

Berry,

purely FWIW...

"Yes there are lots of network software that run on 32bit platform, but that is old and outdated, not lots of servers run it anymore."

The new Windows 10 for ARM is 32 bit, which would disagree with your statement that it's old/outdated. You're correct that not so many servers run 32 bit OSes nowadays, because if nothing else, in their common role hosting VMs, that's one of the relatively few applications that actually uses [often much] more RAM. That said, a *portable* app for network analysis is more likely intended for non-server PCs/laptops IMHO. For PCs/laptops in a regular, non-server role, 64 bit Windows is somewhat often targeted by [especially driver] software developers simply because it's currently more common, and they don't feel like writing 2 versions. Most software OTOH is 32 bit, so it can't benefit from >4 GB RAM, which arguably the majority of Windows devices don't have anyway.

Berry,

How about we can say that this App is suitable for 32bit computers, as long as your Network only has 4 PC's in it?

Berry, Just a "quick" point 32bit server platforms are limited to 64Gig physical RAM using PAE technology windows has been PAE capable since Windows XP SP1 I believe but due to some bad 3rd party 32 bit drivers Microsoft had to disable access to RAM above the 4Gig barrier leaving less than 4Gig accessible for desktop 32bit editions of windows. Server 32bit editions did not use such exotic hardware as desktop and laptops and so did not have the same PAE compatability problems so were able to address far more physical RAM and using the 3Gig boot time switch permitted 32bit applications that had the correct link time flags set to allocate 3Gig to a user space process while taking 1Gig away from the system. Which is not a problem when you don't have graphics cards with 0.5gig to 1.0Gig video RAM that must be mapped into the 4Gig 32 bit address space further restricting the amount of RAM available in a 32bit system.
But you can patch a desktop ntkrnlpa.exe to allow the full 64Gig RAM access in all 32bit windows since Windows XP SP2 and if you don't happen to have badly written drivers you can use all the RAM less that which is memory mapped hardware. I have my 32bit Vista SP2 patched and that lets it see and use 7.9Gig of the 8.0Gig much of the time it is used as dynamic storage cache which does improve the system response time. I have to repatch the ntkrnlpa.exe each time a new patched one is released which has been a couple of times since Microsoft pretended to end Vista patches.. but my same patching script works everytime they generate a new patched version for Vista and windows server 2008.

It is possible to use the over 4Gig RAM as a very high speed RAM drive and in conjunction with the patch it allows windows to see the RAM and be able to hibernate the entire RAMdrive too. without the patch only the RAM seen by the system gets stored in Hibernate file.

I serve HD and UHD media from my 32bit Vista laptop to my UHD Smart TV using the free edition of servio DLNA server. It works well! I put new media into the monitored folders and it gets integrated into the server database and available on my TV in anything upto UHD depending upon the media resolution. Also the CPU usage of servio while serving the media is barely noticable and I can continue to use the same laptop for general internet use including torrenting, emails and skype and playing video on the laptop without getting buffering so no your point e) is not accurate in my experience at all. And if you have sufficent physical RAM i.e. like for like then a 32bit windows server running as a general file or email server with the same amount of RAM as a 64bit windows server of same version will have comparable performance and in some circumstance better performance than 64bit systems simply due to 64bit instructions taking up more more memory locations!

The reason they are comparable is servers need massive drive caches for optimum performance and 32bit can have as big caches as 64bit systems with upto 64gig physical RAM installed.

64bit servers only come into their own if several user sessions login remotely using remote desktop or other remote desktop systems that allow multiple concurrent sessions or running multiple virtual servers as vmware appliances where each needs unfettered RAM access to avoid relying on virtual memory.

Actually not true i seen 32bit machines run this perfectly hell my old one runs fine 5 of 4k netflix/prime/youtube or a mix of both vids with ease so not sure where your idea come from.

Great to have a direct download and straightforward installation/registration all GOTD downloads should be as simple. Great piece of software, nice clear GUI and gives plenty of useful information. I run a couple of small servers and this is ideal for keeping an eye on what they are doing. Thanks.

In short it's a nice packet sniffer, network analyzer and troubleshooter to solve various network issues and pinpoint possible bottlenecks in your network.
Obviously it's aimed at non-professional network administrators and small businesses alike, so I doubt it may be useful for the majority of people here, not to mention that it's possible to use the award-winning WIRESHARK for doing more or less the same things.

How come, the program insist to be installed at my System drive, when it's announced as a portable program. Can't figure that out?

Allan , I agree, it's a little bit of carelessness at work (by the GOTD team and/or Colasoft).

And a portable version would have been excellent to get instead of (or as well as) the fixed installation version. It's not too hard to think of at least one reason why a portable version is not on offer today, though!

But too bad GAOTD its not available for 32bit, really why.
Until few years back, Giveaways wouldn't be available for 64 bit, this is the first time i see it not being available for 32bit.

AstralNavigator, very wise choice, this sort of tool is only of any value to a network jocky or administrator. The "normal" computer user would not care nor need to know anything this software clams to provide and in reality if you did have a need to do deep network packet analisys you'd be better off using something more well known like wireshark where you can be talked through it by members of a problem solving forum.

Kiwi1960, 32bit system is still on the market. Lots of shops and other institution stills runs 32bit and it will probably take few more centuries for this 32 bit to become obsolete. 64bit is the new rage, but the mainstream market hasn't changed. So do not be under the impression it is something outdated. U probably used 32bit when u owned your first pc.
So zip it, about 32 bit.

Reply   |   Comment by Endomondo  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+35)

Kiwi1960, Nobody cares about how many servers or computers you have, but I would suggest you get your facts straight ... It's your o/s that's 64 bit not the network. Today's software requires a 64 bit o/s but a 32 bit system is just as good as 64 bit when it comes to connecting to the internet, the developer probably chose to design this for 64 bit machines as they are becoming the norm.

Reply   |   Comment by Robert  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+32)

Kiwi1960, Also your so called 64bit system is running around 70% of all its software as 32bit because not everything has cought up and uses 64bit yet most programs are still pure 32bit in a 64bit system so the fact you think this says everything about your IT skills.

Reply   |   Comment by Wipeout  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

Kiwi1960, are you trying to say your network is IPv6 and not IPv4 in which case your network addresses would be 128-bit not 64-bit, the standand and well protected network standard is the 32-bit IPv4, but because IPv6 is so new and not in anyway mature it is not well protected by decent IPv6 firewalls and often an IPv6 device stuck on a LAN is directly accessable to the internet and has to have hardened protection design in, which most devices simply don't have the hardware resorces to do and often end up get reprogrammed with malicious firmware to spy on the local networks data traffic or capture video and sound if the device has that capability.
That's one of the problems with bleeding edge technology your wallet bleeds money and your network bleeds data that the vampire criminals lap up.

If you mean you are running exclusively 64-bit versions of windows, big deal they still have exactly the same patched security vulnerabilities each month as the 32-bit variants so get over yourself!
I bet PCWorld love people like you! LOL

The reason this developer chose to only build 64-bit software is they are poor programmers that can only design physical memory bound programs so if you have a small 64-bit machine like the HP stream netbooks with 1 or 2 Gigabyte of RAM you'll be lucky to analyse a few seconds worth of data. We've had a couple of short sighted developers like that here before who never learned how to program time sensitive virtual memory capable applications.
