New in version 22.214.171.124
The following improvements have been made in version 126.96.36.199 (May 06, 2023):
- 4 new checks
In the new version four new checks have been implemented: "WLAN available" checks if a certain WLAN is available. The check "Window exists" can be used to check whether a specific window is present on the desktop. In contrast to checking a process, it can be used, for example, to check whether a certain file is opened in Excel. "Certificate exists" checks the presence of a specific certificate and "Updates installed" only reports green if all Windows updates have been installed on the computer.
- Check history clearable
Users now have the option to delete the checks that have already been performed. A frequently requested feature.
- Admin filter
Filters can now be created for the delegation of administration, so that not every admin sees all the checks performed.
- Display of the IP network in clear text
The networks.txt file can now be used to define plain text names for your IP networks (v4) to show the administrator the location. For example, "Headquarter" or "HomeOffice".
- User specific PC-Check-Admin.ini
When PC-Check Admin is started from a network drive, user-specific settings can now be made per Admin.
This allows e.g. the buttons to be customized individually.
- Many minor improvements

- When checking "Device exists", "Not exists" is now also possible
- Designer and Admin remember window size

- Repeating the speed test

New in version 188.8.131.52
The following improvements have been made in version 184.108.40.206 (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.
