Blitware’s tool to keep all
your device drivers up to date. It scans your computer to see which drivers you have,
then consults its database to figure out which drivers you need. Then it lets you
download and install up to date drivers with a couple of clicks. This saves visiting
each hardware vendor site, searching for the appropriate drivers for your hardware,
determining if yours are up to date, downloading and installing. Blitware maintains a
copy of all the drivers on its own website. Blitware makes a number of related products they will try
to sell you when you rent Driver Robot for a year for
. Not only is this a great timesaver, it will
help you avoid installing the wrong drivers for your hardware which could stop your
computer dead in its tracks.
It failed to install four out of seven out-of-date drivers. In two cases it
tried to install 32 bit drivers when I have 64-bit Windows. In one case it tried to
install ATI (Array Technology Inc) drivers when I don’t believe I have any
hardware or chipsets. In the fourth, all appeared to work fine, but Driver Robot
announced the driver still needed updating.
Many of the driver packages arrive as zips. It is up to you to create a
temporary directory to unzip them to, to unzip them, to run the install, then
delete unzipped temporary file directory and possibly the downloaded zip. I
don’t consider the program complete until it automates these functions.
After yet another reboot the driver Driver Robot download section claimed all
installs were successful, even though four of them aborted.
Fresh scans after the install failed to notice that three of the drivers had
been successfully installed. It still showed all seven of the drivers as out of
date. Driver Robot was thus inconsistent with itself, as well as inconsistent with
This program has no trial. I bought it without being able to test it at the
urging of the NVidia
website. I wrote the authors twice without any response. Clickbank/
PayPal gave me a refund. I am surprised at NVidia letting
themselves be roped into this fraud.
I think the company ran out of money for the project after writing the initial
software and had no budget to keep the lists of drivers up-to-date or to provide
support people, but decided to market it anyway. It is a great idea. It needs to be
properly supported to work.
Ironically the ad guaranteed the program to work 100%.
