Frequently Asked Questions about NetScanTools Pro USB Version

  • How do I run the software on Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, 2012 or 2008? Right click on nstpro.exe and select 'Run as administrator' -- you must do this so that features that use WinPcap work.
  • Are the executable files digitally signed? Yes, all executable files are digitally signed so that you can be sure of their origin.
  • I already have an installed NetScanTools Pro v11 license. Does the USB license replace it? No, we treat them as separate licenses -- they are separate programs. We can synchronize the maintenance plans if you desire for a substantial cost savings.
  • Why can't I just put the regular installed version on a USB Flash Drive? It won't work because all settings are saved in the Registry of the computer it was originally installed on and the program will not be portable, ie. it will not work on another computer because those registry settings are not present. Also, WinPcap must be installed on the computer.
  • Are there any speed issues with running from a USB Flash Drive? Yes. USB Flash Drives are slower than hard drives so you will notice a certain amount of delay in repainting some of the tool windows as you switch between them. Since we save files to the USB drive instead of the hard drive, any of those read/write operations will be slower.
  • Does this version of NetScanTools Pro leave any tracks on the computer it was used on? We have worked to make sure that does not happen and to the best of our knowledge it should not. However, be aware that the operating system does keep a record of all USB devices ever plugged into it in the registry and it keeps a record of most recently used programs. If you want to be completely anonymous you will have to edit the registry to remove those tracks.
  • I own a license for the current version of NetScanTools Pro. Why is there a cost for the USB version? We are supplying a physical USB Flash Drive. The binary files are different between the two versions and are mostly incompatible. Both the USB and Installed versions are released within days of each other so that the version numbers and functionality remains the same.
  • Are there any functions in the installed version that do not work in the USB version? To the best of our knowledge all functions operate the same.
  • Can I put other things on the USB Flash Drive? Yes, but be careful not to fill it up or the programs may not work properly.
  • Can I move NetScanTools Pro to another flash drive? Yes, but it does require our assistance. You are licensed to have this software on one USB Flash Drive.
  • Can I make a backup of the contents of the USB Flash Drive? Yes, we strongly encourage backups. The backup is only for yourself and must not be shared.
  • How do I make a backup? Copy the whole drive contents to your backup media after you have completed the product registration process -- a CDR is recommended. We can help you restore it to another drive if necessary.
  • Is there a maintenance plan for this version? Yes, the terms and conditions are the same as for the installed version. Your maintenance plan begins at that time of receipt of the USB flash drive.
  • I already have v11 with an active maintenance plan. If I get the USB version can I synchronize the maintenance plans so that they both expire at the same time? Yes, we can provide special pricing at substantial savings so that both plans will have the same expiration date.
  • What if I lose the USB Flash Drive? There will be a replacement fee to cover the drive cost and a new license key issued. Make a backup so you can reduce the cost and time it takes to get the program up and running again.
