  • Visualization of the user account
    When checking the user account by the user or the administrator, it is now possible to immediately see if there is a problem by means of color visualization (green/red).
     
  • Improved visual appearance
    The client interface now has a more appealing look, making it easier for the user to follow the checks.
     
  • Repeating the speed test

    The speed test can now be repeated without having to rerun the complete checks (configurable).

  • Test configuration
    In the Designer, it is now possible to directly test a configuration that is currently being edited - without it having to be active. Various command line parameters can also be set.

New in version 2.0.0.20

The following improvements have been made in version 2.0.0.20 (January 11, 2021):

  • New checks "File content" and "Event present".
    The "File content" check can be used to check whether a text file contains a specific text. The "Event present" check checks for events in the Windows event log.
     
  •  Free disk space" check improved
     The "Free disk space" check now also allows checking drives other than C:.
     
  • User account check improved
    The check of the own user account is now displayed in color. For example, the line is highlighted in red if the account is locked, expired or deactivated. Also the admin has the possibility to get information about the state of an account this way.
     
  • Reversed checks
    With the two new checks as well as with the checks "Ping" and "TCP port responds" it is now also possible to check for "not present". The check result is then green if a ping does not receive a response or an event is not present.
     
  • Acoustic signal
    Using the 3-point menu, it is now possible to set that a low-pitched tone (beep) is heard when a check is successful and a high-pitched tone is heard when an error occurs.
     
  • PortCheck tool included
    PC-Check now comes with the popular PortCheck tool (TCP Port Check Tool). With the PortCheck tool you can permanently check via command line if a remote TCP port is responding - the syntax is similar to the ping command. A PortCheck query can be offered to the user, for example, if a port returns a negative result in the "TCP port responding" check.
     
  • Many small improvements and bug fixes
    For example, files, processes and services are now selectable in PC-Check Designer and no longer have to be entered manually. In addition, the help has been improved and getting started with PC-Check has been made easier for administrators.
