These programs are more robust than the scripted versions and are much quicker in use to boot.
Thanks to RONSKI's efforts, everything can now be set up using a GUI settings editor for fully automated data harvesting & graphing via user-defined scheduled events.
.Net does need to be installed to make full use of RONSKI's settings editor.
.Net version 4 has been used for extensive testing of the programs on systems ranging from XP Home Edition to Windows 7 & related Home Server versions.
However, users can still manually edit a text based configuration ini file if choosing not to install .Net
AFAIK, .Net was already included with Windows versions starting with Vista, so installing it is probably only relevant for the few XP users who don't already have it installed.
Resyncs are now detected (if monitoring 24/7) & the data is immediately logged, along with optional graphing.
The mis-reported FEC/CRC errors issue from the HG612's own buggy GUI has also been dealt with.
The output is almost identical to later scripted versions, just that there is more of it to assist with trouble-shooting problematic connections.
Once a reliable download site has been chosen, I'll post links here accordingly, so watch this space
At some stage in the not too distant future, these programs are also likely to be converted back to their Linux and ADSL roots as originally developed by Burakkucat, along with asbokid's input.
As data and/or error/event log files and pictures can be attached, the preferred forum for feedback/queries once the programs have been released is:-
