Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool 4.6.01528
Detect and fix several .NET Framework issues in just a few seconds

Microsoft's .NET Framework Repair Tool is a compact and portable utility which will scan your .NET Framework installations for issues and attempt to resolve any problems.

The Repair Tool mostly concerns itself with issues which might affect the installation of the .NET Framework, or its updates. But it can also apply more general fixes, such as re-registering the Windows Installer service, which may help with many more problems. And as it won't actually do anything without your permission, it's entirely safe to download and run the program, just to see what it says.

And running it is just about all you have to do, because the program isn't exactly complicated. After displaying a licence agreement (necessary because it collects information about your setup) you're asked to agree to it; if you do, clicking Next causes the program to run a range tests, which on our PC took less than a second; possible fixes are displayed, and you can apply then with a click (or just click Cancel if you'd rather not).

This doesn't seem to be doing anything particularly surprising to us, and there are no guarantees that it'll fix your issues. It's easy enough to try, though, and on balance the .NET Framework Repair Tool deserves its place in your portable troubleshooting toolkit.

Please note, if you're trying out the Repair Tool and it doesn't find any problems, then by default it will send various .NET and system logs to Microsoft for further analysis. These are most unlikely to contain anything sensitive, but if you'd rather keep your details to yourself, look out for this step and be sure to click "Cancel" rather than "Finish".

Verdict:

A straightforward, if rather basic troubleshooting tool, which should be able to resolve at least some .NET Framework issues

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
