    First post here.

    I just downloaded fdisrd.exe from the Raxco ftp site. I understand that the program or at least some version thereof is now the property of Horizon Software, but as it is now made available for download from Raxco at no charge, is this version, file version 202, now freeware? And if it is freeware, what advantage would there be to purchasing more recent builds form Horizon?

    Thanks for your advice.

    fdisrd.exe is probably the trial version of FDISR, which will expire in 15 or 30 days.
    Free download is not the same as freeware. My installation file is "fdisrfw.exe", which is the paid one and there is no such thing as a freeware FDISR.

    The latest build = v3.21 build 205, which you can get from HDS, but you have to write a ticket to get FDISR + the freeze function and you better ask that one. The price is about $70.

    Does FirstDefence-ISR work well with Vista?

    I'm not sure about that, I still use winXP. Some users had problems, others not. A new OS is always an adventure. :)
