I was happy like a little puppy when I read that there is graphical manager for Hyper-V Server running on server itself. For me that was single missing link in my Hyper-V adventures.

First step was to download their free version. As it became usual, I had to create yet another another account and leave my password at yet another site. Well, at least I will get download link after installation and that will be that.

And that was that. Sometime I overreact. :)

Well, it turns out that this is not all. All that you get in mail is link to god-knows-what executable file. I guess after running that download manager you will be presented with additional application that would let you download what you want in just three-four simple steps. And let’s hope that this company is legit and that you don’t download some “toolbar helper” application alongside.

I don’t know about you but I am pretty allergic to this way of treating your potential customers. While I do understand their “need” to collect e-mail addresses of their potential customers so they can (annoy them) better help them in future, I do not understand why they don’t let you download their FREE application without any additional garbage. Which idiot of a manager thought that this was good idea?

I shall just wait for some normal company to come with same solution.

  1. First of all, this product (a.k.a. vtCommander) was developed by VT Technology Inc. You can find more information here: http://vttechnology.com/FAQ. Visit our site soon to find more information about *free* preview for Windows 8. And we are not going to require registration/e-mail address for this free preview :-)

  2. Hy, can you upload somewhere the free version installer ?
