Driver Fusion 5.6

April 5

We're excited to announce the release of Driver Fusion 5.6. With this release, we’re expanding your options to take control over driver installations from Windows. Please send your comments and suggestions to us, we like to read and use them!

Windows driver installations

We've added an option in advanced settings to prevent automatic installation of drivers for specific devices. This will block driver installations for the device on your entire system, including Windows Update, device manager, and third-party installers. All driver installations made through Driver Fusion are unaffected. Together with the option to change the driver installation behavior from Windows Update, you now have full control over driver installations.

New website and logos

The links used in Driver Fusion have been updated to reflect our brand new website. We've also added a new logo for Driver Fusion.

Driver cleaner

Experienced users can now select and deselect all entries from a category by right-clicking on the category header.

.NET Framework

Starting with this release, you need to have at least .NET Framework 4.6.2 installed. Almost everyone will have it installed through Windows Update or otherwise, but if not, then our installer can automatically download and install it for you. This newer .NET Framework version enables us to support longer file paths and its performance is also improved.

What else?

The issues that you've reported have been fixed, such as the issue that some devices aren't correctly identified as disconnected on Windows 7.
