"Download did not work with 64 bit Windows 7"

January 25, 2012

 |  Version: Active Ports 1.4

Do a Google search and you will see that there are problems with the CNN downloader and Windows 7 64 bit

"NOT A VIRUS - but a good tool in its time."

January 17, 2011  |  By CDadmin

 |  Version: Active Ports 1.4

Pros

This is a good utility tool for identifying TCP ports in use and determining what programs are using them on Windows 2003 or older.

Cons

As with any good tools, someone will find a way to abuse it. Now there are a few viruses that are designed to use this tool if found. Because of this, APorts is no longer maintained.

Summary

So the tool itself is not a risk but keeping it installed may be. Fortunately there are other tools being maintained that perform this same function. Hate to see a good utility like this go away because others abused it...

"Doesn't work on Vista"

October 07, 2009  |  By tkstock

 |  Version: Active Ports 1.4

Pros

Can't Tell

Cons

Doesn't work on Vista

Summary

When trying to run, I get "Access Denied" and the program terminates. If it doesn't work on Vista, the installer should detect the OS and warn the user instead of allowing the install and then crashing. BTW, I am an admin on the machine.
