We moved servers and so donationcoderS.com became dcmembers.com, and it looks like kubicle's files never got moved -- just an oversight!

We'll see if we can't get this fixed today and let kubicle know.

Thanks for the heads up -- i hadn't realized he was affected..

BTW, it's not listed on http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/index.html either.

I love Tiny watcher, so simple yet one of the more useful programs on my system.

Seems Tiny Watcher hasn't been updated in a considerable time. This little app has been indispensable on my XP system.

I suspect I know the depressing answer, but could someone kindly tell if this app works on Windows 7? perhaps in compatibility mode?

If not, I wonder what the prospects are of the developer updating this useful software?

Yes, it works, I can confirm that for Windows 7 32-bit. And without compatibility mode.

I'm glad this topic came up, or I wouldn't have even known about this app!  Thanks!

@muntealb: Thanks for telling, that's very good news. 8) I really wanted to still use Tiny Watcher when I get Windows 7.

btw can anyone report if it works on Win7 64-bit? :tellme:

@wraith808: Cool, I'm glad I bumped this thread to bring attention to this little gem.

I just installed it and am performing the first time setup on Windows 7 64-bit. It appears to be working fine.

Heh. It seems to have warned me about itself running. ;D

Thanks Deozaan, now I won't have to give up Tiny Watcher. :)  

Here are some basic Tiny Watcher points...

-If it's the first time a process has been detected, then notification is given.

-If a process or file has been modified in the slightest, then notification is given.

-Regular/checkup scans are very fast--usually 2-3 seconds on my system.

-I scan scan every couple days or when I think about it--not every boot. I like that it's not intrusive like some security apps (but of course it's no substitute for a full-blown HIPS).

-Tiny Watcher's log file is a useful source of information.
  Example 1: I installed and uninstalled Macrium Reflect two years ago and now cannot remember the names of its driver files. No problem, it's in Tiny Watcher's log file.

  Example 2: I just performed a huge Windows Update and would like to know exactly which files have been modified. No problem, it's in Tiny Watcher's log file.

Yep, I love this little monitoring tool :-* and I'm glad to know it works on Windows 7.
