Driver Fusion 5.1
We're thrilled to announce the release of Driver Fusion 5.1. In this release, we've worked on a lot of varied areas, making your experience with Driver Fusion better. Please send your comments and suggestions to us, we like to read them. We hope you enjoy Driver Fusion 5.1!
To provide a localized experience for everyone around the world, we've greatly improved the quality of the supported languages. Our translators have been hard at work to make sure that the majority is now correctly translated. If you are keen on having Driver Fusion translated into your own language, or if you want to improve it, please contact us.
Driver Fusion now integrates seamlessly with Steam and uses their authentication system to sign you in. This will significantly reduce the number of steps that are required to get started, as you no longer have to activate it with a third party key. All third party keys that have been given out by Steam will be revoked once we are sure that everyone received the update through Steam.
We've always relied on predefined processes and services, that need to be stopped, in order to clean driver entries that are still in use. This works great, until you have something installed that isn't on this list. Driver cleaner is now able to detect which processes and services are using an entry and will automatically stop them before the entry gets cleaned. The stopped processes and services will be restarted once the entry has been cleaned.
.NET Framework and operating systems support
Starting with this release, you need to have at least .NET Framework 4.5.2 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 is also the first version that no longer supports Windows XP and Windows Vista. You can continue to use Driver Fusion 5.0 if you rely on these operating systems. The content service behind Driver Fusion will continue to work with it for the foreseeable future.
We've added support for more devices - along with additional information - in device monitor. The issues you've reported have been fixed and the start up time has been reduced. Furthermore, you can now easily invite a friend to Driver Fusion.
