Windows System Control Center v2.5.0.8 Updated

billon on 10 Feb 2016
  • 3MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Feb 2016
  • Suggested by joby_toss

Windows System Control Center (WSCC) allows you to install, update, execute and organize the utilities from various system utility suites. The program either works as an interface or as downloader. The program can work with both utilities suites downloaded or can dynamically grab and run the programs via a web connection. The included Update Manager can check for newer versions of the utilities already installed and can download and install the missing items.

Works with Windows Sysinternals and Nirsoft Utilities suites, but also highlights Windows' own utilities.

Note: The setup packages are downloaded from the author's website.

@sl23: you might want to have a look at SyMenu (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2394) auto-update system...

sl23 on 2015-05-13 19:10

Thanks Midas, I've been looking at that recently, but unsure how the update works. Does it check, d/l and install any updated apps?

Also the file-system seems a bit messy for my liking, maybe just me, but at least with PA.com apps you simply chuck your apps in the folder and the menu sees them. Need to do a bit more testing to find out how things work with SyMenu before switching.

Midas on 2015-05-14 10:37

Sorry, sl23, no insight on that, since I'm not a user of either SyMenu or PAF portables -- I prefer to roll my own... :)

Notwithstanding, if still interested, check the following forum topic: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21891 ...
