Known Issues

Issue Description Recommendation Comment
Windows Update forces a restart and interrupts measurement Especially in Windows 10, Windows has a strict update policy and forces restarts of your computer, even if applications like SweepMe! are still running. This can interrupt a measurement and in the worst case damage your equipment. In Windows 10, you can define Active Hours, during which Windows will not install updates and restart. For long-running or over-night measurements, set the Active Hours accordingly. As an administrator, you can set a group policy that Windows will not resart as long as a user is logged in.
After changing the name of a DeviceClass, the setting has to be renewed The setting does not work anymore. 'Find ports' does not load any ports. Please change the DeviceClass to the new one and save your setting. We will introduce a DeviceClass ID to the setting in a future version to overcome this issue.
