Reviews for this release

Probably a great tool, however I could not install it. Contrary to the statement in the Readme.txt file, the MSI file is missing from the package and I cannot install it. Also, I tried running PALWizard.exe without actually running the MSI (as I didn't get the MSI in the ZIp file), and the wizard caption shows v2.7.5 (as oppsed to the expected v2.7.6). I suspect it is only cosmetic, however it makes me wonder whether it contains the bug fix and update. UPDATE: Granted 5-Stars due to the fact that I simply ran the PALWizard.exe tool after installing the prerequisites and extracting the files. It ran flawlessly and provided me with a wealth of information. While documentation and instructions can benefit from some updating, at the end of the day it is a free tool into which some generous folk have put a lot of time into to help the community, and it enabled me to lay down some hard cold figures in front of decision makers in support of my claims of poor system performance. Awesome tool, looking forward to have some templates for failover clustering and storage, including SOFS.

This install works fine. Please mind the reviews below are for older versions (look at the date).

To the folks mentioning missing MSI files. You can unzip and run the exe normally. We're working to address the msi installer at a later day apologies. Jeff
