MU - offering a discount on an application that has not been upgraded since 20-Dec-2007 makes little sense. Comments / reviews show it has not worked reliably on Snow Leopard and does not work on Lion. Who would want to buy it even discounted.

I was just taking a look at the developer's site to try and determine 10.6/10.7 compatibility; I haven't been able to find any definitive information about system requirements on their site. In any case, you can always download the demo and try it first. As always, this is a big advantage of buying certain apps through MacUpdate Promo, as opposed to going through Apple's Mac App Store. :-)

This program is good value, but, there is a problem with the graphical traceroute under OSX 10.6
With the impending release of 10.7, this program need to be fixed.

Version 2.7

Useful prog but sadly crippled for some 10.6 users as per response I got from PA support:
We're sorry. We are working on an upgrade (and have been for some time), but currently we cannot offer support on 10.6+ systems. It seems some people have issues, some don't. We need architectural changes to completely avoid the issues. :(

I'm sorry I don't have better news.
Of course the original purchase price doesn't include perpetual support thru changing OSX minor point releases but looks like they're no doubt concentrating on 10.7 now…..
They're unpublicised decommit from 10.6 and future cost of upgrade to PA 3.x or 2.8 whatever will no doubt discourage some from patronising their product again in the future! - Shame as it really is a good product if you are content to keep a static 10.6.4 (or 10.5.x,10.4) image just to use it! :(


Hi Horsemaster

you got a response, good on you!!

I do not understand why Vostrom are trying to commit commercial suicide, this program was the best of class
until the problem with 10.6.

I cannot believe it is too difficult to sort this out, others have migrated, so whats so special about their graphical traceroute (every thing else works), which was the main reason for purchasing the product in the first place.

Perhaps they should contact the author of whatroute, his works.

I tried to try this program - it crashed. I tried again - it crashed. I tried a 3rd time - it crashed. I deleted the program - end of story. - Denny Crane

I saw this application listed under MU special deals. Not updated since Dec 07? Not a good sign.

Path Analyzer Pro is awesome. Besides being just a cool program to use, it actually helps solves problems. When we experienced a network issue and were arguing with our ISP / network provider about where the problem was, Path Analyzer Pro helped us determine where in the line things were messing up. Then, by exporting the report and charts as images and droppping them into an e-mail to our providers (all it takes is one click in the app), it made it easy for even a non-network-person to see where the problems were and how bad they were. This program has my vote for a must-have network utility.
