  1. This product is great. I used it for about a year (after it was improved) and is better than the alternatives. Then I had to re-format my hard drive- Instead of windows 7 the guy put windows 7 ultimate on my hard drive. I used technitium once or twice again and worked great- but then suddenly stopped working. Even when I can get it to say that it has changed th MAc (instead of giving an error reject message) when I check my Mac address from dos prompt 'getmac' the mac address has NOT been changed. I have tried all permeutations possible on the interface, but with no success. and also now the other product I once used does not work also. So I am eating my brain- any ideas anyone?

  8. Hello! Thank you for the great app. I have the latest version installed on xp, and 8.1pro machine. Usb wifi airlive (rtl 8187), work like charm with "02", but a strange thing happens on both systems. When you turn on the pc, the wifi connection on the xp goes "connect-reconnect" before you do the step again to change the mac. Same when it wakes from sleep (then you can see in the tool the native mac instead of the changed). On 8.1 pro, something similar, the wifi connects fine when you turn on the machine, and then after a while it can't connect to the router. You go change the mac again (works also if you reset the same mac again) and works like charm. The difference here is that it works after sleep. Any ideas how to fix the bug? Thanks in advance! Big up! Neven

    1. Thanks for the compliments. I guess it must be some issue with the usb wifi device since the software is just to edit the registry settings for you. Try to install latest drivers for the device if available and check if the issue persists.

      Delete
  9. Thanks for the reply. I am sure is not about the drivers themselves, because i have new drivers on both systems. I tried with airlive/windows connection manager. I read somewhere that you intended the app for integrated wifi only, it must be some catch/difference between the usb and onboard wifi. Maybe add some registry key to hold the usb wifi values? Does the app install some drivers/layers/services that are trying to do something on startup (if so probably the usb adapter is not recognized for some reason, some id changes or something), or it runs only when you run the exe? Thanks again! Cheers!

    Replies
    1. The app only edits registry value which the network adapter driver reads. App does not install any drivers or do anything other than editing the registry value. There are many usb wifi devices whose drivers dont read the registry value and so it doesnt work with them. The issue you are facing must be something related to the device or the drivers itself.

  11. Hi,

    at first - thank you for the great software :)
    The GUI Mode works pretty well for me but i'm currently struggling with
    the cmd mode.

    Here's the problem:
    whenever i try to execute the following command "tmax myConnection -r" the program quits with the following error:

    "91 Object variable or with block variable not set"

    OS: Windows 7 x64
    MacChanger Version 6.0.6

    Looks like a problem in the args parser?

    Best regards.

  12. Hey there, i got a huge problem:
    I did the windows 10 update while running TMAC (just forgot it).
    Now i'm not able to restore my original MAC address. It says: "Failed to restore original MAC Address". although everything else works just fine.
    Is there anything I can do about it?

    1. Hey, don't worry, it should be due to TMAC getting confused since win10 must have made changes to network adapter settings. Just read this blog post and follow steps: http://blog.technitium.com/2014/06/fixing-wrong-original-mac-address-in.html

  13. i love TMAC very much. before, i pondered on how i would once again reconnect online after i had dumped my isp due to rising internet costs. TMAC is a godsend. now all it needs is another program to work in conjunction with TMAC so as to totally bypass the pesky wifi signup/complimentary signup page (xfinity) ten stars! -cheers!

  14. Hey this works when I first turn on my computer but when I try to change it, it crashes & disables my wifi. I have to turn my computer off then back on and run a troubleshooter to get my wifi back on. Only for it to happen again. I have windows 8. I'm using xfinity wifi.

  15. Just posting this here for reference. (Windows7Pro_x64)
    I was using Tmac v6.0.3 and I could not update the vendors list (OUI) ... some error about encoding of the file, noticed the changes in the newer version were supposed to have fixed that. so i updated to Tmac 6.0.6 via the "check for software updates" option in tmac. I was able to download and install the newer 6.0.6 version... but when i tried to update the OUI and it said something about not being able to access the file.

    It game ne this error no matter what i did, administrator / non administrator, changing permissions, taking owenrship of files, deleting tmacv6.set... nothing worked. The only thing that solved this problem was uninstalling Tmac completely, and downloading Tmac6.0.6 and installing a fresh install. Only then I was able to update the OUI.

    So if you are having trouble, just try a fresh installation of the newest version. Hope this helps.

    1. I seems that some registry key is missing or corrupt. Will check the error details and find out. You can try to reinstall the network adapter drivers from Device Manager and see if that gets fixed. To do it, open Device Manager, find the network adapter device in the list, uninstall it, and scan for hardware changes from Action menu to get it installed automatically.

  17. Hi, having a problem. Just downloaded windows 10 & the latest version of tmac. everything works fine except for when I try to restore my original wifi mac address my computer freezes & I have to restart it because this is the only way I can get my network adapter to work again. Any ideas why this is happening?

    1. The problem is due to the network adapter not getting disabled and this freezes TMAC window. You can open device manager and disable the network adapter from there yourself to get things moving. Don't know the reason for this, I too have it with one of my laptop.

  20. Hi! I have used TMAC Changer for a number of years and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you for all of your hard work.

    I have recently found myself needing to use the command line to perform tasks in tmac. However, everytime I try to run a cmd (even those that are listed on the "Help" page), I get the following response:

    'tmac' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    I tried searching for a solution, and the only thing that I came up with was to make sure that my PATH was correct (and it is: C:\Windows\System32). Have any idea on what could be preventing me from using the cmd line prompts?

    Thanks for your hard work once again!

    1. Thanks for the compliments. Just make sure that you are in the TMAC installation directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Technitium\TMACv6.0) before running the command. If you wish to run the command from any where, then just add that directory path to the PATH environment variable.

  21. Any chance that you have successfully tested the latest version with Windows 10? If not when would this version be available? I understand that the core is very similar to Windows 8 but I don't want to be the tester :P Hope you understand. Cheers

    1. It looks like that TMAC is unable to disable the network adapter and thus is not responding. You can uncheck "Automatically restart network connection.." option and try changing MAC address. You will need to manually disable and enable the network adapter to apply changes.

      Delete
    2. Well what happens is when i go to use the Tmac changerv6.0.7 I select ((wifi,-Random Mac address,-Check all 3 boxes,-Change now)). Then it freezes and, after about 5 secs it says non responding an then I have to Ctrl+Shift+Esc then end task and, re open it and, the wi-fi box will be unchecked or, checked either one if checked it still disables my wi-fi and, forces me to restart my computer to get my internet back on. An if it manual check the boxes it will freeze making me go back to end task and, start it back up and, manually check them again but still no matter what after I hit the "change now" it disables my network and, forces me to restart my computer. What do I do to fix this. I even tried going to the network and enabling my network from their but all it does is say enabling and, then still does nothing an then still having to shut down my computer an start it back up but afterwords it does change an the network comes back on. But I want it back to were I click "change now" an it changes and disconnects from the internet but then I was able to reconnect in about 3 secs/ an now network crash until restart.. Sorry for essay but I really want this app back to it's normal state. Ty for quick response by the way!

    3. The network connection list checkbox are there to enable/disable the network adapter individually and not to do any type of combined operation on multiple network connections. Your computer is having issue with enabling/disabling network adapters from the API call. So TMAC freezes when trying to disable network adapter. I would suggest you to reinstall the network adapter drivers to fix any issue caused by registry corruption.

      Delete
    4. You can try changing mac address without TMAC disabling/enabling the network connection. You can do that manually from Windows Network Connections or Device Manager. You do not need to restart to fix it.

      Delete
  32. I am running windows 8.1 on a PC and on a laptop. TMAC works great on my PC, no problems at all. On my laptop, though, it will change the MAC address once successfully, then if I try again, it will hang forever. I have to kill the process and then reboot in order for it to work again. I read what you just said to Anonymous and Bryan and will try this solution.

  34. Hey
    I have a friend who uses your Mac address changer and it works great for them.
    But on my computer whenever I try to change the Mac address it goes to the blue screen and says memory dump file. I them have to go to safe mode and set my computer to an earlier time. And this happens with whatever technique I am using to change the address.
    Can you tell me a way I might be able to fix this? Thank you.

    1. Getting blue screen is indication of having issue with device drivers or the hardware. You can try to disable & enable network adapter device from Device Manager and see if you get same error. You can try to download latest network adapter drivers and install them to see if that fixes it. For changing MAC address, TMAC writes to registry and then disables & enables the network adapter to apply changes. Most issues occur while disabling the network adapter.
