There is today no solution to this problem as only Troublesome has the source code to his work, and as stated in another post a fix for it ain't possible due to the API changes in Win7 and the assumptions UTDC does in regards to how the OS work don't apply.
So without Troublesome or his source - it ain't gonna happen.

THO

From what I understand a "solution" is being worked on, tho if it'll ever see daylight I have no idea.

wouldn't they just have have to add an additional section to source so when utdc checks depending on os it'll know how to scan or check the client computer? Is there a way I can contact Troublesome i'd volunteer to test this any solutions he develops out.

Troublesome hasn't logged in on this forum since october 2008. UTDC will have to be replaced.

I've seen him on IRC a while ago, I think he can be contacted, at least to give someone source to continue the work.

It's been a thorn in the side for quite a while, tho a few programmers who are capable of solving it are looking at it, but as Anthrax said, UTDC won't probably be released even to the most trusted person in the world, hence it needs to be re-written from scratch which is a massive job.
