Which packers supports avast?
« on: June 01, 2004, 11:52:55 PM »
Hello!

I am Michael from Germany!

Unfortunately, I am not so well into English.

I have avast home 4 and would like to know with pleasure which packers (e.g., UPX) and archives (e.g., ZIP) the home-version supported.

Does the pro-version support more formats and if so which?

Thanks for the information and greetings from Germany!  :)

I think not. All available packers are supported in both Pro and Home version...  ;)

Hello!

This I also think. This is good! :)

Does avast support the packer ASProtect?

RejZoR had written once the following

Quote
Well Home Edition scanes packed files too,but its limited only to executable packagers like UPX,ASPack,ASProtect and so on.

However, in the list Scanning inside packed executables* only the following packers exist

* PKLite, Diet, UPX, AsPack, PeShield, PeProtect.

This would already interest me. ;)

Yes, I think AsProtect too.
I could be wrong with the new updates but definetivelly the scan capability of Home and Pro version were the same. Not even a difference with packers... At least, that was what Igor and pk said in the near past... I can be wrong, but the differences between the two versions aren't at the scanning and protecting capability. Except, of course, the Script Blocker. Hope this help. If not, somebody correct me  8)
