Software Update Pro 5.43 war am 6. November 2017! als Giveaway verfügbar!
Software Update Pro ist ein Software-Client, der euch über verfügbare Software-Updates für euren PC informiert.
Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10
(1) Download link promptly emailed by GOTD;
(2) Linked web page promptly opened and 12Mb zipped download completed;
(3) Executable scanned by VirusTotal. Result: 2 / 67 (two warnings out of 67 engines: false positives.)
(4) Read Me text is unambiguously clear: install software; get license; then and only then run software so as to input license;
(5) License Agreement touts developer's 'Malware Hunter'. Leave check box unticked;
(6) Installation completes, with check box 'Run Software Update Pro' already ticked. Untick;
(7) Installation triggers Glarysoft web page 'Activate Glarysoft Update Pro now!' for $9.98. This page confusingly overlays GOTD's own 'Successfully activated' message and the link to a quite different page for the software license;
(8) New page "Software Update Pro 1 Year license giveaway" seeks customer's email address and assurance that he / she is not a robot. By way of proof in my case, examination was required of several dozen largely unfocused Captcha shots to identify eight or nine, er, highways. Hopefully, this won't prove I'm Robo-traffic-Cop and I'll have to start over with store fronts;
(9) Receive 1 Year license; run software for first time; activate license.
Verdict: other developers partnering with GOTD seem to manage OK without mandatory highways inspections. Glarysoft should do likewise.
(1) Revo Pro on my computer reports 299 installations (though obviously, that does not mean 299 separate programs);
(2) Glarysoft Update Pro scans my computer and appears to report 132 installations;
(3) Of these 132, at least 90 are not on my computer anyway;
(4) Noticeable in the scan results is information about updates to Glarysoft products that I don't have, including (surprise, surprise) Glarysoft Malware Hunter -- described as HOT -- and Glarysoft Tracks Eraser, Glary Disk Cleaner, Glary Utilities, Glary Duplicate Cleaner, Glary Undelete and the equally HOT Glary Utilities Pro;
(5) The scan also points out that Glary Software Update Pro needs updating from the version I've only just gone to the bother of installing;
(6) In total, Glary Software Pro advises that just 12 of its 132 scan results are suitable for updating.
Verdict: if this software is 'pro' anything at all, then it is pro-Glarysoft, a means of flagging up the developer's other products.
Rather than identifying actual software on my computer which may or may not merit updating, it instead catalogs the status of 132 items of which 90 are as relevant to me as would be the news of a bigger, better meat pie to a vegetarian.
Thanks, GOTD, but no thanks. Uninstalled.
Hi, please pay Attention when trying to update majority of GOTD Software!!..
Most of them DO NOT offer updates 'per se', some state they'll provide it for a limited period of time (worth checking Installation dates) So be smart and tread carefully in your own interest, or you might lose important Licenses!..
Under the Price on the right of this page is "The program is available for $19.95,
but it will be free for our visitors
as a time-limited offer."
Does this mean that it is not free but has a time-limited time frame ?
Chris, no it's not. It's a 1 year license. This will include updates to future versions released within the next year.
From the license email Glarysoft sent me:
2017-11-06 to 2018-11-06
Reading the comments, it is yet another long trial period, what is the point? What happens after a year, it just stops working? Or are they saying that you can continue to use it, but you won't get any updates, which I guess means it become useless anyway? Strange, and not sure what the point of this is, when ever you install a program, you can usually choose how the program updates, either automatically, or you can usually open the "help" menu and check for updates. This seems like a lazy mans program, plus it isn't free as GAOTD was created for.
Sorry glary, you just got put on my list of vendors I won't be supporting. Don't give something away, but not give it away. Free means I own it, for as long as I like, I am not leasing the program, but that is exactly what you are doing, offering a lease, no thanks.
This software does not give you an option for where you want the software installed, that I could find anyway. I keep a drive just for the OS and install software on another drive, some people have quite small SSDs and similarly want to keep them just for the OS, so this software might not suit setups like that.
