Ok,it appears that i forgot to change version number within the program. I think it should be fixed now.

I'm thinking about implimenting CRC32 file comparison,but i'd like to hear from you if this could be useful in any way.

It will just tell you if the file matches to compared one or not,nothing more,nothing less.

Ok work in progress. I also added other comparison info like file version,size,full path,filename with extension and CRC32 value with CRC32 comparison status report.

It's just another safety feature for us.
It just insures the persond downloading the file that it's the genuine article.
Excellent Idea. Again, thanks!

Well, CRC32 is rather easy to fake 8)  (i.e. modify the file such that its CRC32 remains the same). How about MD5? ;D

Re:[New version] avast! External Control 1.2
« Reply #86 on: June 21, 2004, 11:16:00 PM »
Version 1.2 is out weeee ;D

New in version 1.2:
+Added ZIP Archive Extractor function
+Added avast! Optimization Wizard (full avast! files defragmentation)
+Added finish dialogs for Enable/Disable/Restart avast! Antivirus Protection
+Fixed avast! installation path detection (if not installed/detected)
+Fixed avast! version and build number detection (if not installed/detected)
+Fixed some spelling errors and minor bugs

Ok ZIP Archive Extractor might be useless to most of you,but i thought it could be useful in critical situations (btw you can extract files from any file as long as it uses ZIP compression technology,because you are not limited to ZIP extensions only :) ) ;)
I also included avast! Optimizer (defragmenter) which fully defragments all avast! files. But only available under Windows NT/2000/XP/2003.

I'm also thinking to make this tool Windows NT only,because Win9x is very limited and i lack test environment (I have NT OS...) for it. Maybe i'll make a second AEC utility only for Win9x users,i'll just have to get that d**n VirtualPC so i could test inside Windows XP :) For now enjoy AEC 1.2 ;D

The next thing you need to do is add auto-update. ;D

Re:[New version] avast! External Control 1.2.260
« Reply #88 on: June 23, 2004, 03:00:00 PM »
New in version 1.2.260:
+Added Database Storage Method selection (ODBC or XML)
+Added Norton Antivirus 2004 Cleaner (supports Windows 2000/XP only)

I finaly integrated database changing ability. You can now easily change between ODBC or XML without need of editing any INI files. AEC does this job instead of you! :)
Second one is a long awaiting function that cleans all remaining files and registry entries left behind by Norton Antivirus 2004.
Currently its limited only to Windows 2000/XP and Norton Antivirus 2004 (Pro) but i'm probably going to add support for Windows 98 and Me too :)
I also changed Changelog and Readme file into RTF file format with some colors,so its easier to read the text.

You know, RejZoR, I've been tempted for quite a while to get and try a copy myself.  But you (and of course others here) keep coming up with new ideas for it, and you're putting out revisions faster than avast gets definitions updates.   I don't dare blink, or I'm already three releases out of date.  ;D
