Installation not OK: takes too long time and too much place

Negative Comment by em4020
about SeaTools and CrystalDiskInfo Jan 2013

I do not like SeaTools because it is not portable as CrystalDiskInfo is, and because you must install dotNetFx40Fullx86_x64.exe as a precondtition. dot.Net 4 needs 48.1 MB and it is only necessary for Seatools. The installation of dot.Net 4 was very long, and then needed an update, which needed a very long time too.
In spite of successful installation of dot.Net 4 the installation procedure of SeaTools could not be finished successfully on Vista business 64 bit. Hands away from this unmature disk-tool.
