"the Zeus literally the exact same hardware". Yes. Yes, it is. There are computer programs ("Speccy" is a good free one) that you can use to determine EXACTLY what is inside any Windows computer. The...

I would hope that the Verus Edge is still viable for a while yet. Considering that it is the EXACT same hardware (with a slightly different case) as the flagship Zeus. (Shhh, big secret.)

Well I guess that's the last nail. Boss paid for three years of the extra "guided diagnostic" stuff on the new Zeus and found it sadly lacking. I did too and happily used Troubleshooting instead. As...

I've been seeing the same artifacting on our Zeus running Embedded Win 7. I checked my Verus Edge but it hadn't gotten that update yet so I just stopped it in it's tracks.
Appreciate the heads up!

We could get the smaller Zeus Vci for the Edge from its introduction. Just no one wanted to pay that much for one.

You might try downloading and running the Firefox browser. I much prefer to use Chrome, but Firefox does a much better job as a mediator between old XP and the modern internet. On my Verdict anyway.

$200? Really. Eesh. I've been updating my own computers since like DOS 3.0. Probably save that 200 and do it myself. I hear some people already have.

I've been bitten by that too. I came to about the same conclusion as Joe Rappa, though I'm sure he states it better. Since it's now something I know to watch out for it's not so big a deal.

I wonder if your dealer knows the Verus Edge and Zeus are essentially the exact same things? Just slightly different cases and a software tweak or two. I know I'm not the only person aware of this.

The only reason I complain here about Snap On's tools is that I like them. If I didn't, I'd trade them in on another brand and then go complain wherever appropriate for THAT brand. :)
