Driver Fusion 7.0

March 5

We're pleased to announce the release of Driver Fusion 7.0. With this release, we've made it possible to switch between features without having to start over. Please send your comments and suggestions to us, we like to read and use them!

Usability

Driver Fusion will now remember the state of your opened features. For example, you no longer have to recheck for issues in health check after you've switched to device control and can immediately return to the results you were looking at. Switching between features can take some time to render if there's a lot of content loaded, such as the results from driver cleaner.

Scheduler

The scheduler will no longer show a fixed popup at the bottom right corner but instead use an automatically closing Windows notification. On Windows 10, this notification will not be shown if you've enabled Focus Assist. Futhermore, you can change in the settings which issues you want the scheduler to check for.

Health check

You can uncheck any of the three issue categories again before you're checking for issues.

Device control

The time required to load devices is greatly reduced and is now completed within a second on most systems. Other features that use devices, such as health check and driver cleaner, also benefit from this change.

Driver cleaner

The cleanable drivers received new entries to be up-to-date with their latest versions. Searching for entries also take less time, which is especially noticeable for drivers with many possible entries. In addition, we've added support for cleaning UWP apps on Windows 10.

Driver backup

We've improved support for backing up Universal Windows drivers, which enable developers to create a single driver package that runs across multiple different device types, from embedded systems to tablets and desktop PCs.

High-DPI scaling improvements

Support for per-monitor scaling has been added and we've increased the rendered resolution of most icons.

.NET Framework

Starting with this release, you need to have at least .NET Framework 4.7.2 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.

What else?

We've added support for more devices in device monitor and the issues that you've reported have all been fixed.
