Released critical update v5.0.2 of the System Information Unit
v5.0.2 of the System Information Unit has been released. This is a critical update that fixes two significant bugs in the unit. The first caused the unit to cause an access violation when simply included in a project that was run on the Windows 9x line of OSs. The second caused the unit to report Windows 9x OSs as server operating systems, which they are not. Updating is strongly advised.
