Re: Runaway memory usage in Access Connections AcSvc.exe on Windows Vista (SP1).

2008-12-03, 18:37 PM

Wow... They deleted my previous message where I complained about AC and suggested to use Windows built-in functions for Wi-Fi switching instead.

 

Well, I have Vista Business 64 on Thinkpad T61p and this piece of software just never worked properly out-of-the box. Neither does newer version 5.0.2. It still leaks memory and CPU badly, to which there's plenty of evidence (see my previous posts) and no solution. 

 

Sure, deleting messages criticizing bad software is easier than addressing the problem.

I saw the message before it was deleted. Deleting it was pretty heavy handed and not a very smart PR move.

For a change, I'm not the moderator who deleted that particular message, but looking at that moderator's comments in our archive, I believe he felt it was more of a rant and less of a productive critique of problems.

 

You can criticize all you like as long as it's reasonable and productive.

FWIW, none of the moderators are Lenovo employees, and we are far less interested in PR moves than we are in keeping order so that discussions are fruitful for everyone and not simply for those who shout the loudest.  Mark has succeeded in suppressing my natural instinct to boot anyone who raises their voice, but only just barely.  ;-)

Perhaps it was just poor judgement then. While the level if disatisfaction it expressed was high, it actually was potentially more productive and helpful to users than many of the other posts. It suggested using the built in Vista wireless software instead, and it related the experience of having had good success going that route. That at least IS a potential solution.

 

Interesting that the moderators here don't work for lenovo. Since it's their forum though, the actions of moderators still reflect on them and do impact how customers feel about lenovo.That's between you and them of course, I'm just making the observation.

 

Cheers,

 

Eric

Re: Runaway memory usage in Access Connections AcSvc.exe on Windows Vista (SP1).

For info.....

I noticed that when i switch profile, there was a noticeable lag in the tray icon notification. Most of the time i endup clicking the desired profile more than once (from right click AcSvc tray icon) thinking that it is not responsive on the first click.

 

One of the bug?... may be.... 

 

Edit:

Another thing, there's another service thats eats up my CPU. It's logmon .exe. I don't know what this does but killing this improves CPU performance and does not affect any other programs.

 

Anyone notice this?

 

Regards.
