Comments on iObit Software Updater Pro 2.4

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Errors replacing previous files during install, I just clicked [ Retry ] over and over, eventually it installed, then it warned that it won't run, then it runs fine.

- - - - -

We can select to ignore versions ( for example, I prefer TeraCopy v2 and hate v3 ).

- - - - -

Missing many features and benefits, misbehaves:

- NO indicators and controls if programs to be installed are
- - 32bit or 64 bit
- - free or trial
- - unlicensed version upgrades outside of current license

- NO right-click to explore disk location of a program
- NO link to a program's website

- NO undo

- does NOT offer to install programs "clean", that is, turning off supplemental add-on installations

- does NOT control the language during installation ( one program offered non-English installation screens )

- does NOT install quietly,
- - needs user interaction for some programs, we can't "go away", and we need to toggle back and forth to catch programs waiting for user interaction to move them forward
- - some programs pop up info during installation, interrupting typing, then errantly grabbing keystrokes, thinking I was canceling the install, when all I was doing was trying to finish this review!

- HANGS on a program if user interaction is needed but cannot be provided ( iTunes asked for a file then vanished, but iObit Software Updater Pro 2.4 stayed on iTunes installation anyway ... and eventually moved on to the next program to install )

- NO integration with other IObit programs, such as offering to uninstall a program not wanted.

- does NOT control if installation is for current user or ALL users ( I have to manually move them after installation to ALL users, which is my preference )

- does NOT recognize some already installed programs

- one program installed and immediately it popped up and said a new version was available, so this does NOT get the latest version of some programs

- does NOT install supplemental programs needed by the program it is installing ( IOTransfer needs iTune/Apple USB drivers )

- fails to install Microsoft SilverLight, Adobe Air ( who cares ? )

- also failed to install Advanced-IP-Scanner, iTunes, Wise Care ... BUT it moved forward anyway to other installations, it did not hang waiting for a failed installation to be resolved, and that's good.

- no control over NOT installing it's own "nags", like all IObit programs, it installed scheduled tasks, so I run free Microsoft SysInternals [ AutoRuns ] to find and toggle off any automatic running of any programs.

- - - - -

Conclusion: I like it ( ! ), it's like a bulldozer with no elegance, it just plows forward and installs whatever it wants any way it wants.

I use it in conjunction with:

- free Ninite. com installer
- Glary Software Update Pro ( not free )
- free UpdateMyPc. com
- various updaters in other IObit programs

... and in spite of all that, I prefer the self-updater in most programs, so I use all-purpose updaters like this just to let me know when to go and self-update other programs.

I look forward to v3, and v4 to incorporate remedies for the (mis)behaviors and missing features and benefits I have listed.

As always, thanks to the vendors for participating here and trading functional software for our feedback.

Peter Blaise, brilliant analysis, thanks. I am surprised at the negative votes your post has received. If you'd written something silly like, "Been waiting for an hour to receive registration details", or "Does not download", you would probably have received 10 upvotes :-)

If this programme automatically updates anything you got from GAOTD (they usually don't allow updates) will the programmes automatically revert back to free versions? If so it will be a waste of time as it would ruin any I have downloaded from GAOTD.

In response to [ Rabbit ],

This is true of ANY licensed program where an upgrade is not included.

You can unselect and you can tell iObit Software Updater Pro 2.4 to ignore programs you have no license to upgrade.

Note: ALWAYS check OPTIONS first to turn off automatic actions.

I have been using free versions of several iobit tools such as driver booster and uninstaller for years. I always had in mind to pay for the pro version but I always delayed this decision because I didn't really need them. So now, I just couldn't miss this opportunity.
