Annoyance: Manual Scan brings up SC window

Hi folks,

I guess the following is something of an annoyance more than anything else, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

When instigating a manual scan (right click file or folder, hit Scan), the results pop-up comes up as per VS+2008, but now with VS+2009, the main SC window also comes up to give exactly the same results in the VS/SC main window as those reported by the pop-up window.

It's a bit annoying when you want to scan a few files regularly, and now instead of having to close just the pop-up window, you've got the SC window to close as well. More often than not, the SC window is still loading after you've closed the pop-up results window, so it kinda slows things down overall.

A bit annoying...!

Cheers,
Gopha.

Just got off our conference call.
It was by design.....wait for the next version, they'll probably switch it back to the old way.

By design(!)...? When you say next version - do you mean the next incremement of VS+ - or the 2010 version...?

Cheers,

Could be an increment but nothing know yet....

Apparently someone, somewhere, just upped and changed its behaviour. Who knows when, if ever, it will be changed back.

Evidently whoever decided to change its behaviour doesn't do many manual scans, otherwise they would've realised just how irritating it is!

Well I tried to pass it on, but they didn't seem to think it was important.

Well probably they never foresaw that...
Now this suite will open the Security center too(along with the alert window) if you scan one file or a thousand file...
