Commercial Program Replacement for Technician’s Toolkit

Posted by on Sunday, May 12, 2013 in Software Development | 0 comments

Hi all

After extensive testing we have selected the replacement programs. These are listed below:

Passmark BurnTest – Replaced by HeavyLoad
Passmark Performance Test – Replaced by NovaBench (provided i can make a portable version)
Passmark MonitorTest – Replaced by Monitor Test from http://tft.vanity.dk/
Passmark KeyboardTest – Replaced by AquaKeyTest
Passmark WirelessTest – Replaced by NetSurveyor (provided i can make a portable version)
System Information 4 Windows (SIW) – Replaced by HWInfo32

These programs will be integrated into the Computer MOT as well as the other menus of the Technician’s Toolkit where appropriate.

I hope to be building a new version of the tool soon that i will hopefully be in a position to offer for Beta Testing of the Computer MOT in its current state.

Thanks to everyone for your support and patience so far
