Hehe don't worry about version numbers :)
It will be v1.5. Its still a huge version jump,but i think it will be worth it.
Version number looks similar to avast! 4.5,but it will be (hopefully) released much sooner. avast! 4.5 compatible version will be released few days after its release i guess since i have to see what new tricks/features will be used.

Anyway first barrier was destroyed a few minutes ago when i sucessfully tested the return to beginning loop,so program doesn't exit after every function anymore(gets you back on function selection list as long as you don't use Quit button :) ). Proxy settings will be a bit harder,but nothing i can't handle :)

I sent the developer BETA version to Technical so he can test proxy settings for me. The hardest part was this proxy menu and some functions that prevented me to make a loop back to selection list. On some i improvised a bit,but i think it won't be too annoying :)

what are you using c++ ?

Personally I like visual basic better.  Just choice preference.  Even though I think c++ is a more powerful language.   But, I am lazy and VB does so much of the coding for you  ;D


Java in my opinion is intriqueing, but I have no desire to learn more than advanced Java in college.  Perhaps the new tools they are developing will help bring them back.

I didn't use any known programming language :P This programming language is known as HISL (highly improvised scripting language) ;) and uses the installer core to render all those menus and run all those scripted commands :P Its hard to belive what you can make with installer program doesn't it? :P

And what spagetti with bologna souce ;) If you'd open the "source code" in a "compiler" you'd be terrified. Hundreds of lines just for one page that displays.

Here are some sample screenshots from my every day work on AEC:

Screenshot of selection list editor:

Screenshot of display pages controls:

Tweaker scripts(only part of it):

External Boot-Time scan function script(only part of it):

Norton 2004 Cleaner(only part of it):


I did learn some VB,but everything seemd so comlicated and it would took me hours just to make some simple command. With this installer core i can make extremely complicated commands connected in a chain with changeable variables in a matter of minutes.

I was wondering why it was so difficult to make the program loop back to the menu.  I almost offered to help, :o  OH! so glad I didn't now. :P I would have immediatly regretted that decision.  Yes, VB would seem more difficult at times; but, would make some things easier.  It seems as if you are simply manipulating code that is already there, nothing wrong with that, don't get me wrong.  But, you could sure "snazzy" it up, interface wise, if you converted it to VB. 8)

p.s your pictures didn't post, I would love to see them.

How you mean they didn't ? They are there i'm 150% because i see them. Host is not some cheap crap like yahoo that has hotlinking blocked so this is not the problem.

No probs.

Send your stupid ISP where sun doesn't shine. You have right to see whatever you want. Damn i hate idiots that block content just because of certain thing. Mine is probably because i have freeweb word in host name (its not even free,i pay it monthly along ADSL line bill).
