dotPeek 2024.1 Help

dotPeek's network activity

dotPeek may use your network connection for several purposes.


Description and configuration

Look for updates

dotPeek can detect available updates and suggest downloading new versions.

To disable automatic checks for updates, clear the Download the list of available updates checkbox on the Environment | Updates page of dotPeek options Ctrl+Alt+S.

Send out anonymous usage statistics

dotPeek can collect and send out some information that helps us find bottlenecks and improve the quality of the product. All information is sent anonymously.

To enable or disable this activity, use the Participate anonymously in the Feedback program checkbox on the Environment | Product Feedback page of dotPeek options Ctrl+Alt+S.

Download PDB and symbol files

In order to work with original sources when navigating compiled code dotPeek may need to download PDB and symbol files from symbol server. You can disable that, in which case dotPeek will have to decompile locally available assemblies.

To toggle the access to symbol servers, use the Allow downloading from remote locations checkbox on the Decompiler page of dotPeek options Ctrl+Alt+S.

Normally, no additional modifications in the firewall configuration are needed. In case of any difficulties, adjust firewall settings so that dotPeek can access the network. You can also adjust the proxy settings for dotPeek's internet connection on the Environment | Web Proxy Settings page of dotPeek options Ctrl+Alt+S.
