  • Question

  • Hi I am inside a Intranet will the tool need to connect to the web to do its assessment. The last time I ran this tool (a few months ago) it looked to connect to microsoft.com. Can I still use this tool effectively, or is the a way of downloading the database it is trying to connect to and redirect the program to the local downloaded database.

    Regards

  • You can run the tool fine without connectivity to the internet.  The only reason the tool connects to the internet is to download the latest device compatibility updates, but that's not necessary for the tool to work. If it can't connect, it will use the built-in device compatiblity infomation which is current as of Nov 2009.
