Works Ok, but wont give stats for boot drive under Windows 7 32 or 64.
You must run as admin to get the stats for the boot drive
Thats a bug
I unfortunately don't have a windows 7 to test, only windows 8. I have only found 1 manifest that works across all platforms. I am using the manifest
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
as usual, none of microsoft's manifests seem to work. I could strip the manifest out and see what happens. but it won't work under program files.
that's why I included the manifest. I didn't want to set the manifest execution level as requireAdministrator (microsoft says it's not recommended).
that's not a bug,that some sort of protection thing of windows 7's UAC, my code has nothing to do with it. runs fine on my XP and on windows 8 on C:.
there are 2 other possibilities,
it is quite possible there's file corruption - this happens over time on windows machines. when was the last time you repaired your filesystem?
system instabilities can be caused by overheating. overheating is caused by a clogged cpu cooler or a stopped cpu cooler fan. clean it out every 6 months to a year,no dirt clods, please. canned air and tweezers.
I am supposed to be getting a windows 7 machine at some point I guess, but I don't have it yet.
I will try to release a no-manifest version. I hope it doesn't break everyone's systems. maybe it willwork just fine - I know XP doesn't care.
