NetScanTools (TM) Pro 10.91 Published

Both the installed version and the USB version are ready at the same time -- amazing! The changes are relatively minor if you are using an English version of Windows, but if you are using a non-English European version, this release has potentially big changes. If your C:\documents and settings\%username%\application data\nwps\netscantoolspro (XP/2000/2003) path has non-English characters in it, the paths to the database files might not have been understood properly by SQLite, so you would not be able to open the SQLite databases. This has been fixed.

The second major thing affects those who need to place the files normally found in those two paths somewhere else, maybe for a virtual machine. We've added a way to use an .ini file to describe new paths to those files.

There are also some other small changes and as usual we've updated the databases. Whois now supports several more top level domains and there were two corrections to existing domains -- like .mil whose whois server went offline a while ago.

If you have 10.x and your maintenance plan is active, please use Check for New Version to get the latest version.

And don't forget to look at http://www.netscantools.com/ once in a while for periodic sales. Right now there is a 2 for 1 sale, a USB and CDROM license for the price of the USB.
