Also improved the UI of the app creator. When creating apps, you have options to test each download and command individually. Making custom third party apps should be much easier now.

 

UVK 10.1:

v10.1.0.0 Release date: December 14 2016

  General debugging and optimization.

  New feature: Windows Store apps uninstaller. This new fucntionality can be found in the Smart Uninstaller section, by pressing the Windows Sore apps new button, which replaces the old Uninstall entry properties button, only in Windows 8 and higher.

This new feature is a simple uninstaller for Windows store apps. It displays the existing apps in a list, in which you can tick the ones you want to uninstall, and press the Uninstall checked button. You have a check box named Check usual/none which ticks the apps that are most usually uninstalled, or none, respectively. Just below, you have another check box named Show system apps, which defines whether the list should show all apps, or hide the most critical ones.

The Store apps uninstaller can remove system apps such as Cortana or Microsoft Edge. While this may be useful if you want to remove some of those apps, you should be careful not to remove important system apps, because you will not be able to easily re-install them. You should be careful when using this feature. 

  Added more tweaks to the Registry tweaks list, in the Tools and tweaks section: Disable Store apps auto-updates, Enable store apps access to admins, Disable service: Downloaded Maps Manager, Disable service: Delivery Optimization, Disable service: Windows Search and Disable and hide Cortana.

 

UVK 10.0:

v10.0.0.0 Release date: December 02 2016

  General debugging and optimization.

  New feature: The UVKPortable's uninstall prompt includes a new check box which allows to define whether to delete all application reports.

  New section: Backup and recovery. This new section provides a complete backup and recovery solution especially designed for computer technicians. The new section's help page can be found here.

You can backup user profiles with the option to select which user folders to copy, including the user settings (application data folders). You can also backup any additional folders you like.

Existing backups can be updated in place, which becomes much faster, bacause files up to date don't need to be copied again.

This new feature obviously allows you to restore a previous backup. You can choose which users to restore, which per-user folders to restore and which additional folders to restore.

Restoring also has an impressive feature: the ability to create exactly the same user accounts that existed when the backup was created, and then restore those users files. This is especially useful when reinstalling Windows, or migrating the OS to a bigger or SSD disk, as you will no longer need to worry about creating all the previously existing user accounts. The Backup and recovery feature does all the work for you.

The Backup and recovery section was built to be intuitive and easy to setup. Usually you only need a few seconds to configure a backup, and once it is created, it can be opened for restoring. Each backup is saved in its own directory, and the backup configuration is saved in a BackupInfo.uvkbk file, in the backup's folder. This file type is associated with UVK, so you can open these files by double-click.

  Improved the Quick User Manager section.

  Debugged and improved the Log analyzer.
