This is a great program. I can say that it does everything I need it to do. It really helped my sort out my networking problems when I actually first started caring about networking tasks. Saved me a few headaches for sure.

Avast! also found embedded rubbish in RC2...
(Win32:Trojan-gen in dude.exe)
A pity as it looks an excellent gadget but because of that (and all the other confirming reports Nod32, AVG) it must get zero stars.... sorry have to be 1.

...hang on...Just checked RC3 and seems clean but will keep an eye on it... these virus reports are too common throughout the history of this software... it will make 5 stars for sure if it stays clear of vir-signs...

Seems to work great, but to run it I need to disable my Anti-virus program.

5 for the app (having used earlier betas)

but nod32 reports 'probably a variant of win32/Gentik trojan' about 80% through the download of rc1 from betanews. and terminates the download.

Crashguy-- you need to sleuth / gather proof... maybe inspect outgoing packets? 'Afore spreading FUD & lowering average rating-- now you'll have to give out four 5 ratings in a row just to raise your average rating above 4.

Your penance for that liberal & conspiracist outburst shall be:
sing O Canada and La Marseillese 4 times each-- then read Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago.

Great program...
Very handy if you operate a network that is spread out.
Discovers 99% of what is on my network, and monitors about 75% of that without any fiddling...

Crashguy: the program tries to determine whether the devices it detects are SMTP servers (which AVG intercepts). It is not sending information... it is trying to determine what is running on the remote computers/etc...

Do not use this program, as soon as i installed in on multiple machines at different locations suddenly the AVG email scanner went mad, there was a large amount of uploading and transfer.

I believe this program is sending the details it discovers.

Do not install!!!

to bobb****in 2 comments down:

If you are using Windows then you do have ADVAPI32.DLL on your system, although it may be corrupt or the wrong version. This error happens with Windows Address Book sometimes to.

Read this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/181685

Windows is the only "program" that should include ADVAPI32.DLL in its distribution. Obviously you installed other software that overwrote your original version and ballsed up your system. Not The Dudes fault.

This is excellent software BTW.

Love it! It finds all devices in the network easy and then present it to you + a lot of good tools.

The DUDE.EXE file is linked to missing export ADVAPI32.DLL

Why wasn't this needed file included in the package?
