Remember, the SetKeepAlive.exe program runs on Windows Vista and 7 and sets up the Registry and .WS files to avoid timeout issues.

It does not do anything with firewall timeout issues or host system configurations that cause timeouts to occur.

Also, while SetKeepAlive does run under Windows XP and produces the changes to the Registry and .WS files, XP users report that they see no changes in timeout after using SetKeepAlive on Windows XP. At MidrangeNews.com we have not experienced a timeout issue under XP..
