Scotty's on Patrol

An upgrade has been released for WinPatrol, making the current version 10.0.3. The revision was to provide minor requested enhancements and fix a couple of problems. Although it is a generally a good idea to upgrade to the latest software release, this upgrade is not required, but recommended if you have encountered errors.

The upgrade includes the following issues that have been fixed:

  • Fixed issue with the Info dialog when not using the default 96 DPI display property.

If you’ve changed your Display properties to greater than the default 96 DPI the Info/Properties dialog may have appeared to be chopped off. This problem only occurred after we made the Info dialog expandable.

  • Buffer Overflow crash may occur when using "Delete on Reboot".

A couple builds ago we added extremely tight buffer overflow control for security reasons.(More Info) It’s possible in previous versions of WinPatrol a buffer overflow occurred when using Delete on Reboot and we never caught it. Now we get an error dialog so we were able to resolve this issue immediately. If this bug affects your machine you’ll know immediately.

  • Feature Request: Added -NoOpen parameter to WinPatrol.exe.

Normally, running WinPatrol.exe a second time will launch the tabbed interface, WinPatrolEx.exe. Using user controlled process launchers such as Sudo for Windows can cause the interface to open when launching a 2nd WinPatrol process. Adding -NoOpen to WinPatrol will resolve this issue.
