What are people saying about Cacheman (2 Computer License)

Bradley MacDonald Question about licensing...
Do I need to purchase a copy for both PCs that I own?  Or will one license do? 

Bradley MacDonald
Jun 15 2010 at 7:29pm Copy Link
Thomas Reimann This is a two computers license. We have changed the headline in order to emphasize it better.
Outertech - Jun 17 2010 at 6:59am Copy Link
Xelkos Cuhl Am a bit concerned with the longevity of the license itself.

The one time I asked for support (a minor version upgrade) for CachemanXP got a reply that was totally unexpected. The vendor accused me of pirating the software when I have proof I bought it directly from Outertech. Even sent this proof to the vendor and never got a reply to the issue.  Never even got an apology, nor any support. Did solve the issue on my own though.

What guarantee do they offer that other purchasers won't get accused of pirating software when they go an ask for support a few later down the road?

The product is very good, the support on the other hand is questionable.
Jun 18 2010 at 4:02pm Copy Link
Thomas Reimann If Cacheman report a pirated license I can assure you this is 100% the case. We never accuse the customer of software piracy (please show me an email to prove otherwise) and always write that SOMEONE with access to the computer must have entered the pirated serial number into Cacheman. Such pirated serial numbers are available on the internet, e.g. thru torrents, are always the same and as such identificable with 100% accuracy. In case a license number is stolen from a customers computer, we have always provided a replacement.

Markus Meyer I've used Cacheman since years with good results. When contacting support always got an answer within few hours. Highly recommended.
Jun 18 2010 at 7:02pm Copy Link
Steve Larson If purchased can I give "half" of the license to another person?
Jun 18 2010 at 7:05pm Copy Link
Thomas Reimann As long as the license is installed on only two computers in total, it can be used by two different persons.
Outertech - Jun 18 2010 at 7:10pm Copy Link
El Piggio It says $14.99 US$ but when I go to checkout it's $21.78 AUD$. ???  I didn't think the exchange rates were that bad!

Stefan Hauber As a software-developer, can I use this program to find out if my self-developed program had freed all it's allocated memory when exiting, as it should (or how many allocated memory had not been freed)?
Jun 18 2010 at 8:59pm Copy Link
Xelkos Cuhl Two emails were sent with copies of the proof, to Roger of Iconico - since his was the reply email to the live email account.

Thomas Reimann @Stefan

No. If an app is leaking memory, Cacheman can cap the amount of RAM it receives without preventing the program from running correctly, but in order to examine the exact details you need an executable version of your app that includes heap debug information. This is very tricky business, where you need some (not much) knowledge of assembly language. We can give you a push in the right direction if you contact support.


I've looked at your emails. You have sent a screenshot to support that shows your CachemanXP installation with a serial number that differs completely from the serial number you have purchased. I've asked you where you have this serial number from, because it was stolen from another customer and posted on the internet by a hacker. I was not accusing you of anything. I've awaited your answer, but you wrote back that you have solved the problem.
Outertech - Jun 18 2010 at 9:45pm Copy Link
El Piggio OK, I've purchased the program now and am very impressed with the functionality and t javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions("StoreComments1:cmdSubmit", "", true, "CXStoreComments1", "", false, true)) he range of options!  It seems to have helped a lot with disk thrashing problems on my Win 7 s javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions("StoreComments1:cmdSubmit", "", true, "CXStoreComments1", "", false, true)) ystem (I have 4GB RAM but I've had this problem for a while and don't know what caused it)  I would say that the performance options have given my PC a new lease of life and saved me having to re-install for a while.

Xelkos Cuhl One of the neat features I found in Cacheman7 is the individual icons. Doesn't matter if you have a single, dual, triple, or quad core CPU there's an icon for each core, and I have displayed RAM Free in the system tray.
The system tray icons may seem like fluff, but for laptops having the icons can show the user if the CPU is busy with other tasks, or if the task has started/completed.

And one of the bigger options I like best, even though it's just an option, is Tame UAC. Nice to not be bothered with that.

Best of All Worlds doesn't seem to work the best on my system, although Gaming & High Performance does.

Will have to say I do miss the manual ability to free up RAM with hotkeys, or right-clicking the icon to free up RAM. Not sure why that went away.

The program just keeps getting better and better. Cacheman sure has come a long ways since it's initial incarnation.

Thomas Reimann Cacheman 7 works also with Windows XP SP1-SP3. If you have problem installing, please contact support. Keep in mind that CachemanXP should be uninstalled before installing Cacheman 7.
Outertech - Jun 19 2010 at 3:17am Copy Link
Peter C1 I have two questions or issues to ask: Quote: Upgrade Policy: ''Free upgrades for 36 months, with discounts to upgrade future versions'' Q1. Is it possible to purchase a genuine lifetime of upgrades bypassing the quoted 36 months mentioned above, eg. v7.0.0.2 to v8.xx to v9.xx to v?.?? (including minor updates v7.0.0.2 to v7.0.0.3 etc)? Issue 2 is to do with the automated exchange rates used in purchasing a quantity of 1 lot of 2 Cacheman licenses: In brief : In my opinion, the exchange rate I was first offered in Australian dollars takes a very hefty swipe at the Buyer who is not in the USA, or , doesn't buy the goods in the advertised ( presumably indicated ?) US dollar price, but decides too purchase the offer in their local or chosen currency. The localised ordered price grabbed my immediate attention (as exchange rates and commissions are not mentioned anywhere I could easily find) and I thought it best to bring this matter too your attention for your considered opinion. In detail : At present I'm located in Australia, and I looked in on to see what was currently on offer, and I saw Cacheman v7.xx offered and - having had some previous experience of CachemanXP, I thought I'd buy the 2 licence offer at ( presumably indicated ) USD $14.99. When I clicked on the green ''Buy Now'' button I was taken to a small window which said it was linking me and then up came the ordering info window in prices that had been converted from (presumably USD) to Australian prices. Registration Protection Service price was not included. The details of the converted price to AUD $ offer/order immediately grabbed my attention, however when I selected to have the prices shown in USD prices, the order prices where the same as those shown on the offer/info page. I then closed all browser windows, opened a new window at the original page and went through the entire process again and seeing the same converted to AUD prices show up again, I was convinced that there was - in my opinion, a serious overcharge in the automated Australian (AUD) conversion prices, and I don't mean 1 or 2 cents per dollar but a whole lot more than that. If I chose to accept the first automatically converted Australian (AUD) dollars price: 1. Cacheman 7 2-Computers-License [#xxxxxxxxx] AUD 53.28 Discount                                                      AUD - 31.50 Total Amount                                                            AUD 21.78 NOTE : For reasons of privacy I have X'd over the actual ordering number both above and below. Whereas, if I took the extra time to change currencies and opted to purchase in US Dollars (see exchange rate details at bottom of this entry) this is what I would be charged: 1. Cacheman 7 2-Computers-License [#xxxxxxxxx] USD 39.00 Discount                                                       USD - 24.01 Total Amount                                                            USD 14.99 So USD $14.99 concurrs with the page info, whereas, if I chose to purchase in Australian currency - as first appeared on the screen, there'd be an extra cost ammounting too AUD $4.60 above the actual converted price of AUD $17.18 not including any commissions . I have purchased software from various websites in the past and I accept there is usually a REASONABLE commission charged for overseas currency conversion to US dollars rates, of perhaps 5% and up to perhaps 10% which is about the highest percentage I've ever encountered, but in this case, from the details I have shown, we are talking of way beyond even 10 percent: AUD    $0.8725 per [ rate] converted to US dollars AUD - $0.6882 per [] converted to US dollars Totalling AUD $0.1843 per converted to US dollar or in other words 18.43% exchange including commission (which is pretty steep eh!?) So unless something somewhere is terribly wrong with my maths , if I do ''buy now'' - as I'm now rethinking the entire deal, I'd be buying in US dollars and bearing ''the less than 5%'' exchange rate that a very major credit card providor (starting with a V*** or M*****) would charge me. Since I started typing this out (which I've done over a few hours) I notice I'm not the only person who wants to buy in AUSTRALIAN (AUD) dollars, who thinks something is very much not right with the price. I could not easily find any mention on (and the problem may be with to say that a purchase of goods offered which are presumably indicated in US Dollars, but which on beginning the ordering process is automatically converted into the buyers local currency, may incurr hefty exchange rate fees. I'd like an answer to both Q1 and issue 2 if it is possible. Many thanks, Peter Crosby Rates taken from Live rates at 2010.06.19 05:10:00 UTC         14.99 USD = 17.1805 AUD;to=AUD United States Dollars Australia Dollars 1 USD = 1.14613 AUD   1 AUD = 0.872500 USD

Thomas Reimann 1. Lifetime license

This was never asked before. We will work something out in the near future and offer it also to existing customers.

2. Australian sales

The sale is done thru, one of the largest software resellers. It was chosen because it's one of Bitsdujour accepted partners and is easy to setup. Outertech has no influence on the Australian convertion rates. The setup allows to specify a price in USD, EURO and Pound sterling. We had no idea that Australian customers get an additional pricetag. Since ShareIT belongs to the Digital River corporation, which controls about 70% of the software resale market (ShareIT, RegNow, Regnet etc) it may be that this increase is present all over the Digital River network. I suggest you purchase in USD, this should work with any Australian Credit Card.
Outertech - Jun 19 2010 at 5:42am Copy Link
Roger Thomasson To reiterate Thomas, neither Outertech nor Bits du Jour have any control over conversion and exchange fees.  Shareit is a 3rd party payment processor, and while we might raise our eyebrows at the fees they charge, there is simply nothing we can do about them.   I can't speak for Shareit, but I'm sure the fees have something to do with the added costs of accounting for the complexities of a global eCommerce system.  And to be fair, those complexities are substantial.  It's no coincidence that more than 90% of our 2000+ vendors utilize 3rd party payment processors like Shareit to  manage global eCommerce. Anyhow, if you'd like to continue this discussion, feel free to do it on our message forum.  Let's keep the conversation focused on Cacheman. Thanks! -roger

Stephane M Can we have more than 3 tray icons?

Is the free upgrades for 36 months covering all major versions (7.x, 8.x, ...) coming out within that period?

Is the license for Cacheman 7 working for CachemanXP as well?

I can see that Cacheman is using the Windows HD defragmenter, is there a way to set up the defragmenter we want to use?
Any plans for Cacheman to have its own defragmenter?

Thank you.

Xelkos Cuhl @ Staphane M

If you have a Diskeeper as your system's defragmenter, use that to defragment as you would any other program. Using Cacheman7's shortcut method of using the system defragmenter could render Diskeeper from running. Trying to repair the issue will have you restoring to a previous point for recovery.

If you want another defragmenter, use it as you would any normal program by clicking the application's shortcut.

Stephane M I have one desktop (i7 CPU + 12 GB RAM) running Vista x64 and one laptop (dual-core + 4 GB RAM) running Win 7 x64?

Is Cacheman really necessary on this kind of configurations?
Can it still improve performance?

Jun 19 2010 at 1:52pm Copy Link
Xelkos Cuhl In my honest opinion since have used Cacheman since 1.x, and a current Cacheman7 user, it can enhance any system it's installed in.

There are several default optimization settings you can use, and you can even use your own settings. I run Win7 x64 too, and there's a noticable difference, so much that I will install it again on the next rebuild.

Consider the $15.00 as the equivalent of taking your computer out to dinner for once. Computers like to be spoiled too.

Thomas Reimann @Stephane

More than 3 tray icons will be possible in the upcoming 7.01 version.

The free updates will include all versions.

There are no plans for our own defragmenter as the trend continues from hard drives to SSD and at some point (probably within 2 yaers) defragmenters will be obsolete.

Cacheman should improve every system, also if you have 64GB Ram.

Mar 6 2011 at 10:11am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann Cacheman 7.10 will be released in the next hours.

Since the DNS update for the new website can take time, here is an alternate link:

New in Version 7.10:

* new profiles: Notebook | Netbook and Super User

* Windows 7 SP 1 compatibility

* existing profiles have been tweaked

* increased maximum possible tray icons from 3 to 5

* you can change the looks of Cacheman by switching to different skins (10 skins included in the default installation)

* better support for several new processors, including Intel Gulftown (e.g. Core i7-980X) and AMD Thuban (e.g. Phenom II X6)

* New performance and usability tweaks

* improved toolbar

* process list shows more information about services (e.g. svchost.exe instances)

* several utilities can be quickly launched from the tray icon menu

* you can create system restore points on the backups tab and in the tray icon menu

* tray icon works better with UAC on 64bit Windows

I tried re-entering my info then I got error messages saying my first, last name is not valid, my address isn't valid, my email isn't valid, my phone number is 10 digits and too long. So finally I gave up. Now when I checked my visa card online, it shows 2 payments are being deducted from me for 2 orders of Cacheman 7 both for $22.48 each that are pending and then the 3rd attempted payment was declined.

If a customer purchased Linkman + Cacheman together yesterday, there was no checkbox for Cacheman Lifetime upgrades. So if someone bought both products yesterday, can get the option now. The donate stuff is just a work-around.

Frankly speaking, on such extreme high end machine, there will be not much improvement speed-wise. But program reaction times and just the feeling of the workflow should improve considerably.

Conrad TDI I've seen no DRM or hashing of hardware in Outertech products, and no online activation or calling home for renewal like Sandboxie. I hate and don't trust that, too! It's one of the reasons I use xyplorer instead of xplorer2 with its hidden dll backdoor in your Windows dir! Paranoia? Maybe....

I started using Cacheman back in the ME days when it was essential. It's not as necessary in Win7, but it offers a wide range of enhanced memory control and seems to increase system stability *to me*. Reimann's programming is good, with low memory and processor use, too. Is it faster? Nothing beats more RAM. But, that said, I own it.

I have an explanation from the payment processor about your order difficulties:

"I have checked your recent order issues to try to see if I could identify this customer and you really only have one customer this could be.

Ryan M., OUT110308-9722-30258 and OUT110308-9722-96243, was stopped by the risk processor because he is using an open proxy, is actually located 2500 miles from his billing address and is using a free email address. His Order #OUT110308-7032-50286 was declined by the card issuer.

The charge that he sees associated with that order is a pre-authorization charge. A pre-authorization is a temporary hold of the available balance on a credit / debit card and they are not responsible for paying for it. The charge will drop off their card within 5-10 business days. The exact timeframe varies with each card issuer and each card issuer has control over when those charges will be dropped or voided."

Cassiano qs Cacheman replaces CleanMem or should I run both?
Mar 8 2011 at 12:29pm Copy Link
Michael R. Using mainly a win7, x64, 4GB-RAM computer I am wondering if I should use your program, because cache handling on the newer OS is quite good, as you said yourself.

But there are some things in the orignal-windows, I am wondering if Cacheman can help: So e.g. when copying whole directories from one partition to another it seems that this process gets a big priority and so every other application seems to be blocked or slowed down extremely. Can I influence this behaviour with Cacheman permantently and how to do it? (Of course the other explorer-priority, e.g. displaying the context-menu should not be influenced. (One of the best ways perhaps would be to right-click on the window-title and get a Cacheman-menu which would allow to alter the current priority.)

Having bought your LinkMan yesterday I have to say, beside the program itself, I like your policy: Two computer-licences (ok, unlimited would be better, but two is ok too), no DRM (which is especially useful if a computer gets defect or the hardware changes) and three years of upgrades with the option of lifetime-upgrades for a fair additonally price. (And a fast response-time (at least here at BDJ ;-) ) )
Mar 8 2011 at 12:44pm Copy Link
Thomas Reimann @Michael

The explorer copy process does not get a higher priority. We would need your exact system specs to see why you have this slow down. Please send a Cacheman system report to Outertech support.
Outertech - Mar 8 2011 at 12:49pm Copy Link

Since Cacheman replaces the default Windows memory manager ClearMem may cause unpredicable results with it, so we don't recommend to run both at the same time, but you can try.

Aug 15 2011 at 1:29am Copy Link
Avi S I see that users can limit memory usage to given programs. What I'd like to do, however, is to limit other resources. For instance, in one program that I bought on BDJ recently, there is a GDI leak, so that if I run it for too long it shoots up to 16,000 GDI resources and essentially crashes the system. (The company sent two "fixes", but the problem remains). So I'd like to put a cap on that utility, so that if it goes past, say, 5000 GDI items, it should then start receiving errors, so that it doesn't hog the rest of the system.
Can I do this with Cacheman?

Avi S XTM. A really awesome utility that provides very specific info on every process and thread, far more than the free Process Explorer does. The irony is that it was with XTM itself that I noticed how the XTM process was zooming up in its GDI count. It's fine for the first few hours that it runs, but after 12 hours or so it will bring down the computer. I'm looking forward to a proper fix from the company.

Aug 15 2011 at 5:34am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann Softcollector,

Cacheman consists of many different parts.
You are probably referring to the Cacheman memory manager.
It's about 5% of the programs and becomes only active
if a program starts leaking memory (Firefox is a good candidate).
Cacheman will always try to give as much RAM out as
possible, unlike programs that try to "free" memory,
no matter what (results only in bad performance).
Outertech - Aug 15 2011 at 6:17am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann Avi,

There is no good way to free leaking GDI resources.
This may sound like a good idea, but there is no
way to determine if a single GDI entity is still in
use by a program or not. Forcefully freeing a resource
that is either still in use or will be used shortly
later would result in an access violation bluescreen.
Outertech - Aug 15 2011 at 6:23am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann Antoine,

The link works for me and we have also sales coming in every minute. Which browser are you using?
Outertech - Aug 15 2011 at 6:26am Copy Link
Avi S Thomas,
To explain: I am not asking that you forcefully free GDI resources. Rather, I am asking for the ability to put a cap on a given program's ability to ask for more. Thus, for instance, if a program starts getting out of hand, requesting thousands of GDI resources, I'd like there to be some intervention so that the next time the program requests a GDI resource it should receive a "no more resources" error or the like. This will likely cause the given program to crash, but it will not cause a blue screen. And I'd much rather have this, than have the program use up all GDI resources in the system, causing the system as a whole to lock up.
Aug 15 2011 at 6:32am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann Avi,

your basic idea is right. The program would crash without a bluescreen, but you can never know what damage a crashing program may cause, especially if the crash happens during a write operation. So it's possible to do what you want, but still dangerous. I don't think there is a big market for it, as GDI leaks are really easy to fix from a programmers standpoint. It's no rocket science. You look at the GDI counter when using certain functions and if the counter does not go back after leaving a function you know the root of the problem.

But you brought me to an idea. In the future, Cacheman could look out for GDI leaks and when a program reaches a threshhold give the user an option to kill that process before worse things happen.
Outertech - Aug 15 2011 at 6:48am Copy Link
Margaret Graybill How useful is this with SSDs?
Aug 15 2011 at 6:50am Copy Link
Avi S Thomas,
Yes, your idea sounds perfect.
As you note, you never know what damage may be caused by refusing a GDI request. But it is much better than my situation now, in which one program hogs the GDI, and then all of my other dozens of programs are at risk for unknown damage. Here, at least, I know that this one program is the only one that will be shut down. (And, in my case, I know that it is one that does not store important data, and therefore I do not mind if it is shut down unceremoniously).
So, yes, please do add this feature. I look forward to purchasing your utility when this feature is added.
Aug 15 2011 at 6:53am Copy Link
Dave R I've been a technician for about 30 years and in all that time, I can tell you CacheMan is the best RAM utility that I have ever run across! It is the ONLY one I will use and I install it on every machine that I have built since a month after I started using it, even until today! When my clients ask why I "put that on there", I tell them it's because "You don't want to run your computer without it and after you run it for a while, you'll know why!" and that's the God's honest truth!

It does its job like no other and has many other features & functions that go way above beyond what a RAM utility is required to do and does them better than what's built-in to Windows, that's for sure! But unlike other utilities, OuterTech doesn't get so focused on making it do everything, that the main reason that you bought it suffers! They've got a GREAT programming team there! Sometimes they even have a sense of humor. smile

If you want a SERIOUS, PROFESSIONAL LEVEL utility with a small learning curve, that has a GREAT help file and really responsive and helpful staff, then this is the one for you!

Goran Janevski Does Cacheman detect the applications which are leaking memory?

I installed the trial Cachement, and I can't find where you do that.

Aug 15 2011 at 7:43am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann Not automatically, as you can never know 100% if an application consumes for good or bad reasons. There IS software out there that consumes 100MB every 10 minutes and is still supposed to function this way (e.g. Cinema 4D on network rendering). Capping RAM on it would kill the performance of that software.

Cacheman (in one part) is designed to cure the symptons of badly written software, it cannot reprogram it. You cure the sympton by looking manually at the RAM usage of programs until you find something suspicious (this is a one time thing).

Then you can set a RAM cap a program is allowed to use. When this cap is reached Cacheman will look for memory objects which were not used by the program for the longest time and try to free them. Firefox with some strange addons is a good candidate for that. We had users with a Firefox memory usage of 1.5GB after 2-3 hours and 20 opened tabs. This wrecked havoc to the whole system. Capping Firefox at 500MB helped a lot.

Avi S I bought it and installed it - but I think I'm missing something. All of the cool memory limits and memory-leak-tools and taskbar icons deal with *physical* memory, not *virtual* memory. Whereas my ongoing problems with a number of runaway programs include mostly *virtual* memory issues (besides the GDI issues that I wrote about earlier). I was looking forward to being about to limit these programs, and to have a taskbar icon with a constant readout of virtual memory allocated - but it seems like cacheman doesn't have any of this. Disappointing.

SoftCollector I bought the 3 programs. Several questions:

1. Do I need to do anything extra to get the lifetime update for START ED PRO?

2. I think the tray icons of Cacheman could be made better - to resemble the tray icons of DriveGleam, which combine both: a numerical and graphical representation in one icon (graphical used as background). In this way, for a 2-core processor and memory load one only needs 3 icons instead of 5 (as is the case with Cacheman at the moment). I hope this could be improved in future versions, as 5 icons are simply taking too much space. Please, comment.

1. I cannot find a detailed explanation of the automatic optimization profiles of Cacheman in the help files. What does "Best of both worlds" mean exactly? Or "Laptop"? Or "Super user"? It is difficult to make an educated decision when the data is not available.

2. Regarding START ED PRO - the color scheme of the different types of startup objects, as classified by the software could be improved in my opinion. Currently pink, yellow, orange and red are used. These are very similar colors! Why not use, for example, grey (obsolete), green (new), blue (essential) and red (trojan).

2.1. Also: instead of just being a color code map, those patches of color at the top can be clickable and listing the corresponding entries by said color: obsolete, new... etc.

2.2. A suggestion: it could be nice if the order of startup objects could be changed, times (pauses) added, etc.

Avi S Thomas, you wrote: "limiting a programs Virtual Memory would make it crash.."
But that's exactly what I want to do! Sometimes programs get out of hand and start allocating gigabytes of virtual memory. What happens then is that my entire system ends up crashing, because virtual memory runs out. So dozens of good programs that I have running, doing various automatic tasks (e.g. OCR programs, batch image processing etc.) then all stop in the middle, and need to be laboriously started up again in the same place.
What I want to happen is to shut down those specific programs that are causing the problem - and thus to let all the other programs continue!
This can be done by refusing the program's virtual memory requests - which, by the way, may or may not make it crash - it just depends on whether the program has proper error handling inside it.
Anyway, that's what I sincerely hoped cacheman would do. And it's definitely possible to achieve.
Aug 16 2011 at 11:48am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann If a program is already loosing resources (because of sloppy programming), it's 99% sure it also no proper error handling at all. If you still need a program that is causing absolute havoc on your system, a much better idea is to run it in a virtual machine, and limit the pagefile on that VM to 1GB or less.

Thomas Reimann I was talking to the other guys today, and we will implement your GDI cap idea into Cacheman.
Outertech - Aug 16 2011 at 12:04pm Copy Link
Avi S Hi Thomas,
Thanks, I'm glad to hear about the GDI cap idea! I'm looking forward to its implementation.
I appreciate your idea about using a VM to limit a program's virtual machine, although, it's not always practical. Theoretically, it would seem to me that putting a cap on virtual memory requests would be much the same as putting a cap on GDI requests. In both cases, it's about knocking out one program for the good of the system as a whole.
In any case, even if you just do the GDI cap, I'll be thrilled.

P. Molinar Hi Thomas,
I just installed your Cacheman and really runs great on my Acer Travelmate, speeds up the processes and also improves responsiveness.
It however speeds up a bit processors (Core 1 and 2). Also heat increases by about 3°C
My question is should I turn off / deactivate: Process Lasso / Pro Balance on (is always heavy working) and/or Magic Memory Optimizer with Cacheman ?

SoftCollector Thomas,

I was thinking of buying Process Lasso - are you familiar with the program? If I understand you correctly it should not be run alongside Cacheman? But Process Lasso automatically controls CPU load, while in Cacheman this is done manually by the user (is that correct?), so the functionality is not identical in this respect. Please, comment and supply explanation, if possible.

Kind regards,
Aug 16 2011 at 3:18pm Copy Link
Thomas Reimann You can run both alongside, but you come into some issues if for example you set a process in Cacheman to be permamently at below average, but Process Lasso tries to change it to something else. The process priority will then change constantly. You must be just aware of that.
Outertech - Aug 16 2011 at 3:38pm Copy Link
SoftCollector Dear Thomas,

Thank you for your answer.

I would rather stick with Cacheman, but here is the thing: as noted above the priority of CPU usage can only be set manually in it.

Do you think a similar functionality to the one currently used by Process Lasso could be introduced to Cacheman: when a program starts consuming too much CPU, Cacheman could automatically lower its priority, or otherwise, control it over a period of time to not allow the computer to 'hang' or become unresponsive?

Could that be planned for the foreseeable future?

Kind regards,

SoftCollector @Thomas Reimann

I bought and have Cacheman installed. I also own an external WD HDD and have their software installed.

There is a known issue with some of its components where it starts sucking juice out of the CPU randomly (the external HDD is not even connected).

I have set the "Sticky Priority" to Low in the corresponding tab of Cacheman, but it does not seem to help - the levels of CPU usage are still between 60 and 100%. As Cacheman does not automatically limit processes, this is all I can do with it to address the issue, right?

KInd regards,
Aug 25 2011 at 1:32pm Copy Link
Thomas Reimann Priority will not change the absolute amount of CPU usage an application can generate if nothing else is running. Only if another application (that is set to normal or higher) runs at the same time will the low application get less cpu time. As long as there is still capacity left in a CPU Core, any app that requests CPU time will get it. So in other words, you cannot prevent any application from doing what it wants if there are enough resources to accomplish it (and it would also make no sense to prevent apps you want from running).
Outertech - Aug 25 2011 at 1:51pm Copy Link
SoftCollector @ Thomas Reimann

Thank you for your prompt reply. Nevertheless, it would be useful in cases like the one described above (a piece of software behaving oddly for no apparent reason and draining resources from the CPU at random as a result of poor engineering) to be able to put a limit, or "cap" to the percentage of CPU resources it could use.

That could be done manually, as is the Cacheman approach or automatically, as is the Process Lasso approach, or both.

Kind regards,

Rather than plunk down $120 for more memory on my Dell XPS 630i (Windows 7, 64 bit) instead set the game client (EverQuest2.exe) to 2 GB via the Memory Management tab.
No more client crashes, no more constant memory leaks, no need to spend $120 on more RAM.

SoftCollector An interesting program with a lot of options, I bought it the last time when it was on sale.

Unfortunately, it seems to disagree with my computer, exhibiting some kind of a start up issue with either not being able to load the tray icon or locking my desktop. I finally had to deinstall it (a shame, since I have the lifetime update option). However, this does not seem to be widespread, so it is probably something on my side.

Have been communicating with support for several months, but no lasting solution has been provided. Support seems to be very responsive though and I am positive that the problem will be taken care of at some point.

Further improvements I would like to see:

1. Tray icons should display both graphical and numerical loads in a single icon. This has been projected for implementation in the future, but I do hope they speed it up a little bit. Dirtcellar's Drive Gleam has had it for a long time and it works like a charm (and Drive Gleam is free).
2. More detailed explanations of the different profiles, as general labels leave the user guessing. These have been added to some extent.
3. A more robust (quick and energetic) development map, as important changes seem to be well further in the future.
4. Further development of the dynamic CPU load control unit (along the lines of Process Lasso).

I would like to thank Thomas and team for creating Cacheman and keeping it running, while continually improving it – and wish them the best of luck in the future!

Kind Regards,

David Vaughan I already have Linkman Pro (2 Computer License) plus lifetime upgrades that I got via a Groupon offer around November 2010.

Plus, you clarified earlier that only the StartEd Pro lifetime upgrade OPTION is included (indicating that you still have to buy StartEd which I don't think is on special today)? Sorry to add to the confusion!

On top of that, I already have the Chameleon managers bundle that I purchased via a BitsDuJour offer. It duplicates much of the Cacheman/StartEd functionality and I've been very happy with it!

"Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for 24 months" is not the case on the basis of what I now know.

Gonzo After reading all of this, I feel kind of deceived by the so-called "lifetime" license...
Whenever I decide to buy a software license, I always look for a lifetime upgrade policy. Most software companies provide free updates for minor versions; others provide free upgrades for 1 year...
Most companies that offer lifetime upgrades, allow you to use any version that comes out since you purchase (including going back and forth between versions in most cases).
I know if may sound a bit crazy, but why would my v7 license get deactivated if I want to use v8?
Would I be able to go back and forth between v7 and v8 as needed? Or once I move to v8 I'll never be able to go back to v7?
Mar 4 2012 at 5:51pm Copy Link
VLM Thomas, Gonzo's question raises something interesting, at least to me. If I run Win 7, say with XP installed as a virtual OS, do I need both a Win 7 and an XP Cacheman license on that machine? Or will the Win 7 license cover me, virtual OS and all?

Also, if someone upgrades to Win 8, hates it, and wished to "regress" to Win 7, will you allow that person to regress the corresponding Cacheman license (assuming lifetime was purchased)?
Mar 4 2012 at 8:10pm Copy Link
Thomas Reimann You can go back to V7 if you decide to dump Windows 8. The point is that this deal was about 2 licenses not 4. Without disabling the V7 license when you want a free V8 you would be able to use it on two Windows 7 computers and two Windows 8 computers, so you would have four licenses total, and two of them for free.

Download Cacheman 7.50 installer (free 30 day trial, 3.8 MBytes)
I am in the first 30 days of tring their software when on day 28 I wrote and asked for a refund. Seems to be saying one thing and doing another. Can anyone from Bitsdujour straighten this out or advise. TO BITSDUJOUR Please make it a policy for your customers protection here who buy the venders software thur your site that it is mandatory a sale thur Bitsdujour carry a 30 day satisfaction guarentee. After all your profit 1/2 of the discounted sale price wouldn't suffer, and its the right thing to do. Like most of the other respected software venders/affilates/owners. Thank you Gass

DrTeeth @ Gass

"30-day free trial" means use the demo for 30 days not a fully registered version. It ALWAYS means that on every website that uses those words. "Refund" or "money back guarantee" is what you should be looking for.

Luis On their site they say:

"Even Microsoft recommended Cacheman 5.11: "Cacheman enables you to tweak the cache settings for your hard drive, CD-ROM drive, desktop icons and file and folder names in much more detail. You can pick a typical profile, use the wizard or just experiment."

And again on the history of Cacheman page:

"Microsoft recommended Cacheman 5 on its website as a cache-tweaking software. "

The cited page on the Microsoft site says:

"The articles set out below are articles created and/or produced by Future Publishing Limited. Microsoft is not responsible for the content, accuracy or opinions expressed in these articles."

So that was the opinion of someone writing for a computer magazine, not Microsoft, at the time of Windows 98.

I don't think with the current OSes a software like this is honestly worth a price, considering what it says it does.

Anyway, try it before, see what you get and ask yourself if that money wouldn't best spend in adding some RAM.

Markus Meyer Luis, I'm a long time Cacheman user, and Cacheman has gone a long way from 5.11 to the current version. Memory usage reduction from leaks is maybe 5% of the functionality. Every system that I have installed Cacheman on got a major boost. I'm hoping for a Windows 8 version, as I plan to move from Windows 7 to 8 soon.

Thomas Reimann @Danny

Yes, you can. But if you are on a mode type line you cannot expect wonders in this area. You need at least a DSL or UMTS type connection.


Cacheman works at a much deeper level than the free tools, changing the Windows Kernel directly, and replacing the memory management. If your Windows is already fast, well - there is always some room for improvement.

I'm still testing Cacheman before buying. Last night when I installed it as an admin user I could see the tray icon. Task manager showed both the service and icon running as separate processes. Today I am signed on as a limited user, my normal mode of operation and there is no tray icon and no shortcuts or context menu items available to start it. I can see the service process is running.

Are the tray icons available to limited users?

I assume that limited users may not be able to change system wide settings. I also assume that the service process allows Cacheman to implement enhancements like dynamic priority for limited users. Is this correct? I'd like some assurance that Cacheman will be useful even if I'm running as a limited user.. In particular, I'd like to know if there are any per-user settings that you tweak that are only available to an admin user.

Pim Joosten I have already bought Cacheman on BDJ today, but do have a question which may also be relevant for others. In the older discussions there are questions about Cacheman and Process Lasso running together. Do I understand correctly that from version 7.50 onwards it is advisable to not have these programs run together anymore, as Cacheman has incorporated CPU management options since that version?

Heidi-Ann Kennedy mentioned in her post from last Tuesday that they run well together, so I am really wondering...
May 16 2013 at 11:08am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann @Pim you can run them together, but don't you the same functions of each program at the same time. Just imagine this situation - you set a process in Cacheman to stick at idle priority, then you set the same process to stick at high priority in Process Lasso. What will happen? The process will hop from low to high priority and back to low all the time (and that makes so sense).
Outertech - May 16 2013 at 11:37am Copy Link
Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller @PIm
Just like Thomas said it's a matter of being consistent.

They both actually handle matters somewhat different and can work together.

I prefer to keep Coachmen set to "Real time," and Process Lasso is set "high by "default.

Programs that require high CPU I exclude from restraint in PS and let Cacheman handle the Memory and CPU process. PS was not designed for memory management, even though there is advance setting for such. Leave memory management to Cacheman.

If I had to decide on just one or the other. . . With all due respect to Process Lasso, it would be Cacheman that would be kept. Due to my more pressing need to have all available memory for video and graphic programs.

So the next question is why run both. . .
I get software boredom and have to experiment. ~smiles~

Rich OBrien Is Cacheman 7.70 sold with a money back guarantee?
I downloaded and installed the trial version only to be told I could not run the trial because the 30 day trial was over before it began. A search of my computer shows that I downloaded Cacheman 7.10 in August of 2011. That somehow disqualifies me from looking at the current version. I'd love to have software that cleans up and manages my computer's memory so that I don't have to power down and restart Windows 7 two or three times a day.
If Cacheman 7.70 can do the job, the Bits Du Jour price would be well worth it and I will happily pay the small extra charge for endless updates.

Thomas Reimann @ Heidi-Ann

Right on! If both are auto-configured there can be problems, but if you know what you are doing, you can use both at the same time. p.s. "Coachmen" made my day ! :)

@Stephen/Rich The trial version has a basic profile, which should give you already a speedup boost to test Cacheman out. The process and memory management works also without restrictions. We do have a return policy only if Cacheman is not functioning correctly (giving error messages etc). A normal return policy is not available, because it would be rather easy to use Cacheman return and still keep a large part of the optimization (yes, this has happened often in the past).

Pim Joosten @Heidi-Ann & Thomas: thank you for your responses. They give me more insight. I am new to the territory of computer optimization, so I sometimes get confused as I have not looked at these programs very thoroughly yet. When I googled "difference between Cacheman and Process Lasso" the results I got were a couple of years old and stated that Cacheman is a memory program and Process Lasso a CPU management program and therefore could be very well used next to each other. That was however (well) before Cacheman v7.50 was published. Hence my question about version 7.50, because from that version Cacheman also has some CPU management options.

I am still trying to get more clarity though, about the differences between these two programs. Is it all right to say (in a somewhat "black and white" way) that Cacheman's focus is on memory management, but it also has some CPU management options and that for Process Lasso it is the other way around? So, if next to Cacheman I want more CPU management options I could install Process Lasso too (of course, being very careful with the settings of both programs)?

@Heidi-Ann: do you experience any added value of running Process Lasso next to Cacheman, or was it just to satisfy your "appetite for experimenting"?

Thank you for your answers, I really appreciate it!!
May 17 2013 at 4:51am Copy Link
Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller @Pim,

Let me stress that some knowledge and attention to the programs are required till you get the best performance out of both.

Thomas can correct me if I'm wrong, but my observations indicate Cacheman (sometimes called coachmen by me. LMAO) only restrains background CPU processes, and Pro Lasso will restrain both foreground and background. So yes I see a benefit.

Important note: Exclude Cacheman from restraint in Pro Lasso.

One program that I use 24/7 yet sometimes background and sometimes foreground is Goodsync. It connect every three minutes to several government and corporate servers to mine. Though a very good program it's overly CPU thirsty, and depending how I'm running at the moment I do benefit from both.

Though again let me state that the average user would benefit more from running just Cacheman.

Ok this was a painful comment, I have Pulomanry Fibrosis and just passed out and cut my face open. . .

Take care folks and give the program a shot, you wont be disappointed.
May 17 2013 at 5:48am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann @Heidi-Ann

That's correct. Cacheman does not restrain active/foreground processes since we believe that a program that is currently in use by the user should achieve the best performance possible. A foreground process can be restrained in Cacheman only if the user restraints it manually in the Sticky Priority section of the main Cacheman window.
Outertech - May 17 2013 at 6:02am Copy Link
Pim Joosten @Heidi-Ann: Thanks again for your explanation. I must say that I am quite (some say very) knowledgeable with computers, but I just have not looked into optimization programs yet. Before ever using both programs at the same time on my computer I will be testing this situation in a virtual machine to see what the possibilities and limitations are. It is just that it got my interest when Process Lasso was mentioned by you and others in this thread. And whenever I read something like that I start to think whether this could be something for me too (you might also call that software curiosity :-)

I am curious what Thomas might have to add...

I wish you well Heidi-Ann. Hopefully the injury is not too bad...

Rich OBrien I still don't know if Cacheman is sold with a money back guarantee. But I don't need to know. I purchased Cacheman and after running it for four hours, everything on my computer is quick and responsive as if I had just started my computer. Without Cachman after four hours my computer would usually become bogged down and unresponsive, requiring me to wait and wait before anything would happen. I would have to power down and restart Windows 7 in order to refresh my computer and make it quick and responsive again. And that was with a different brand of computer memory manager and cache software attempting to help. After only four hours, I'm convinced that Cacheman 7.70 is the computer memory management software I've been hoping to find.
After seven hours, I'm happy to report my computer is still quick and responsive. Is it my imagination or is it possible that Cacheman 7.70 has made my computer quicker and more responsive than it usually is when I first power into Windows 7? I know I may sound like I'm paid to say this. I'm not.
Of five memory management programs I've installed and tried, Cacheman is the only one that really makes my computer run the way I want it to.
If you're on the fence, trust me, Cacheman is worth owning.
Thank you Bits Du Jour once again for bringing great software to my attention and letting me buy it for a bargain price.

Alexandre Emeriau Is there a problem using both TuneUp and Cacheman ? I'm not satisfied with Process Lasso Did you experience a better job with Cacheman for balancing cpu resources taken by apps ? I have very often thebat, xyplorer and actual windows manager which take much cpu resources for quite some time, i believe a mail program, a file manager or a windows management should not take high cpu resources especially when you're not using them (they're jus running in the background). If cacheman could calm them down, the goal is met.

Thomas Reimann Michael: "Well, it is your own words and they say 1997... besides there was other software makers at that time who gave their talent away for free !". It's not our words (BDJ wrote it), but by 1997 Cacheman was already in version 3.0, and has millions of downloads. At the time of release in late 1995 there was no other Windows tweaking software.

Jim B Highly recommended! I use this on my work computer and home. Works extremely smooth with Process Lasso on my Win7x64 setup. A little known benefit of this tool is the "tame UAC" which eliminates having to type my password again every time I try to do anything that requires admin rights. I see my co-workers struggling to get things done and imagine how many hours I have saved with this alone! They also seem to have performance lags on the same machine that I am using, so I have a good comparison. This seems to help with performance issues related to the (mandated) PGP whole disk encryption I am forced to use at work.

Jim B There is some overlap between Cacheman and Process Lasso, but I found a post from someone else who had found both to work well together.

Trucker @Thomas Reimann --- v3.00 in 1995 ? and only version 7.8 in 2014 ? Well, my point is that: if you didn´t write it why then buy it ?

I know that there was other tweaking software in 1995... but don´t make me waste time on finding those old floppy disks just to prove it.
Just a clue... Norton made software to DOS as well and had at that time the most powerful tweaking software that money can buy ! Norton did also make tweaking tools for Windows before anybody else got the idea...
Well yeah, you really had to be a nerd to use the tool back then, but who complained ?
Just for the record: Norton made their first software in 1982 for DOS and DiskOpt was their first tweaking software. When Windows came DOS was still a part of the OS and therefore Norton continued to make tweaking software to Windows too... before most other today known software makers.
Apr 27 2014 at 2:59am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann @Trucker I wrote that Cacheman V3 was in 1997, not 1995. Keep in mind that every major Cacheman revision (2 - 3 - 4) was often a partial rewrite because of new operating systems. We had many subversions over the years. There was no other performance optimization / tweaking software in 1995,96 for Windows 95. Not from Norton, or anyone else.
Outertech - Apr 27 2014 at 3:10am Copy Link
Trucker @Thomas Reimann --- v3.0 in 1997 ? My mistake of not reading your words twice...

Yeah, I know there have been many subversions from all software makers over the years.

Windows 95 was released on August 1995 and Norton Utilities v1.0 was released 1996-01-15, but before that Norton had other Utility programs for Windows 3.x and DOS as I said before.

To keep focus on todays software, Cacheman (and others)...
A tweaking software have the "know-how" (Knowledge), for a very limited area, about what to touch and what not to touch in mainly the registry-file... some even warn the user to make a backup of the registry-file, coz they can´t tell for sure if it will harm that certain OS or not !
Todays software is very limited to specific areas of the OS and it does only make the OS as fast as it can be which isn't must, no matter how many tweaking programs you buy.
I have always made the tweaks manual as you never know what happens in Windows... so that is safe enough as any other option is !
As long as you don't replace a file (as they did in the old days) then can´t you get more speed out of Windows than I can, done me way.
Apr 27 2014 at 4:43am Copy Link
Thomas Reimann @Trucker Norton Utilities for Win 95 was not a tweaking software. There was a "TuneUp" included, but it was a DOS program that suggested what temp files could be deleted from DOS to make more room for a Windows 95 installation.

ciprian Here is me ,just talking maybe. We are losing the point here.

We use this software because it provides what we are looking for, aka faster computer management.
We love it because it delivers what it is supposed to do and proves to be a great deal for the money spent.
I don't care what year it first came to light and who was the first to think that a round wheel it will be a great deal.
I don't care who first has the idea, as long as the idea is not an answer to my needs.
I care just about first hand troubleshooting and first hand responsiveness to windows annoyances.

@Thomas :
Another example of app taking some cpu resources without evident reasons : Snagit; maybe cacheman could target specific apps through "profiles" for applying the good behaviour on them; something ccleaner and tuneup do for cleaning purpose (ie ccleaner and tuneup updates drive to support more apps).

Outertech - Aug 1 2018 at 9:52am Copy Link
Alan Simpson Thank you for your reply.

However, I can't believe that the release of Linkman 10 has been delayed for so long (more than 3 years) just because of Edge, a browser chosen by only 4.23% of all users. So basically, if the Edge addon doesn't get accepted in the foreseeable future, all the reg users with lifetime licenses may wait eternally for the next version, right?
Aug 1 2018 at 2:43pm Copy Link
Thomas Reimann Edge support is #1 on request list since years. 90% of Linkman users are corporate, and on many computers only IE and Edge is installed. Microsoft doesn't allow local TCP communication between an Edge addon and a web server. We have found a hack to circumvent it, but MS is not happy about it. We are still talking to them. Because of this delay we have decided to move the UTF core of Linkman 10 into Linkman 8, and make it available to lifetime reg users on request. Will happen officially by the end of the month. We have send it out already to 30 users. Here is a screenshot: https://www2.pic-upload.d...104250.png
Outertech - Aug 1 2018 at 4:04pm Copy Link
Alan Simpson Hi, thanks for the reply.

First of all, I don't know under what circumstances corporate users will insist on using Edge which is not fully supported while IE has always been available, not to mention the percentage of corporates with Windows 10 deployed.

Besides, users usually have to get Edge addons from Windows Store, so even if temporarily Linkman 10 installer can't include the Edge addon, it shouldn't become a hindrance to the release of a new version to users, especially considering the current addon review doesn't look quite good.

Other features that will impact on the experience of all users have also been badly needed for years, such as UTF support, high DPI support and so on.

Thomas Reimann @Gabriel You can use Cacheman and Process Lasso if you disable the Dynamic Priority feature in Cacheman.

Steven Avery Windows 10, especially running on laptops, has a problem with 100% disk usage. There are various partial fixes to try to improve the situation. From experience, does either Cacheman or Process Lasso help with this situation? I have not seen much difference from Process Lasso.

(I am a super fan of Outertech, especially Linkman! :) ).
