    Is there any way to minimize the Connection Notification Window from popping up?
    I would like it to run silent for a while and then go through the entries to see what needs to be customized

    -MSDT
    Fixed

    -Disable IE CEIP
    Fixed

    -Lock Down IE
    Fixed

    -Office policies
    opsi... Fixed

    All the fixes will be included in Build 0.50c

    -Noticed few mispellings:
    The Translation.ini contains mot strings that are used, so all my spelling mistakes can be found collected in one place ;)


    -Firewall part
    I intent in a later build to have two program list implementations, one as you see it now and when you resize the panel more that would switch to a tree view with multiple columns similar to the lists on the right panels.
    i.e. a behavior like its known from Outlook in its email list.
    But that is a to do for a bit later.

    Guys! What do you think?
    Are the buttons to the side of the rule list and the bottom lists a good UI concept?
    Or should I move this functionality to the ribbon toolbar?

    Cheers

    on my LTSC it works fine.
    Do you have .NET 4.5 installed?

    Hi. I have it working but I hit some sort of setting and windows is blocking the service from running.

    Any ideas how to restore your app?

    (OP)
    that is definitely to much I will look into it.

    Edit: I suspect the issue may be with the Connection log or the DNS log, when you restart the tool is the memory usage back down to normal?
