Microsoft Product Support Reporting Tool 6
Collect essential troubleshooting information on every aspect of a computer

Microsoft Premier Support Reporting Tool is a powerful diagnostic utility that will quickly assemble detailed reports on just about every aspect of a PC.

If a far-away friend asks you for help with a computer problem, for instance, then you'll need to know all about their system - and that's where the Microsoft Premier Support Reporting Tool comes in. Email them the file, and all they have to do is run it: there's no installation involved, and the program will immediately begin creating a report on their computer's configuration.

Once the process has finished (which may not be for 5 or 10 minutes on some systems), an Explorer window will open, pointing at the report file (if not, it's in the \Windows\MPSReports\PFE\cab folder by default). Your friend should then email that to you. It's a CAB file, so you should then be able to expand it somewhere to view the contents. And that's when you'll see just how thorough this tool has been.

You get all the event logs from the target PC, for instance.

An NFO file holds detailed system information on the system.

And a host of configuration files tell you about the PC's startup programs, its installed services and drivers, its power configuration, scheduled tasks, installed printers, Internet Explorer configuration, and network setup. There's detailed information on Microsoft Office (if it's installed), recent crashes (including crash dumps), installed Windows updates and the list goes on - you really do get just about everything you'll need to know about the target computer.

What you don't get, though, is any help in figuring out what this means - so it's not for beginners. But if you're already skilled in Windows troubleshooting then this will be a very useful tool, and should make it quicker and easier to diagnose PC problems.

Verdict:

This extremely thorough diagnostics tool should be an essential part of every geek's troubleshooting toolkit

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
