new status meter 6.5

I elect to not install the new Status Meter since it apparently doesn't show as much as ver. 6.2. Does HNS or anyone here have an explanation of why this was dropped and exactly what is the reason for a new version? Most software "upgrades" show what is included. Why not Hughes?

Definitely 6.5 is a step to the rear.
Back to running 6.2 on my machines.

Re: new status meter 6.5

Hi deepdiver and Gwalk900

Maybe it has been a while since I looked at the status meter.. I just installed the newest one on our Windows 10 machine in the lab. Seems to be working fine/the same. What should I be looking for in terms of feedback to send up?

Thanks

Hmm. I see that bar, the items above it.. do you mean the two missing bubbles with the MB and Date along the bar?

Re: new status meter 6.5

Shoot, I'm back to running 6.2 on everything now.

Just tried to update to 6.5 on a WinXP drive and got a "not a valid Win32" error.

Re: new status meter 6.5

I decided to hold off on installing the new one.  I'm glad I did.  The popup is a little annoying, but to keep the old one is worth a click when I turn my machine on.

My Mac is acting the same way with this update. Refuses to recognize it.
