An update to Micro Bridge 13.01 (4/30/13, mbup1301.zip, 1,898KB)

MODIFICATION:

  • The following serious bug is fixed. (13.01)
    If you choose a Regional Notation other than English, Micro Bridge 13 fails to start.
  • Some other minor bugs are fixed. (13.01)
Technical Information
  • Micro Bridge 13 supports Windows 10(TH2).

  • LAN play of Micro Bridge 13 (and 10, 11, 12) is slow when Windows 7 or 8 is running on both PCs. Display of bids and plays on client PC is delayed about 6 seconds after server PC bids and plays. The cause of this symptom is a flaw of Microsoft SMB2 protocol. Microsoft provides an unofficial patch module for this problem, but a safe and easy way to solve this problem is to:

    Add registry keys:
    FileInfoCacheLifetime=0 (DWORD type)
    FileNotFoundCacheLifetime=0 (DWORD type)
    DirectoryCacheLifetime=0 (DWORD type)
    under
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters.

    If you are not familiar with editing registry using REGEDIT.EXE, download and run the following program.

    smbfix.exe (1/27/13, 418KB)

    This change disables a part of SMB2 local cache. The side effect is to increase the network traffic, but it is not a problem for home users. You need to do this change only to client PCs, but I recommend you to do it to all Windows 7/8 PCs on which you run Micro Bridge.
