Not surprisingly, the task revealed itself quite long. I'm calculating 3 months for it to be complete, but it may take longer. In the meantime, UVK will only get critical updates. No need to code new features twice.
I've been working in the new project for about two weeks now, and I thought some of you may want to participate in improving the new C++ UVK by giving suggestions and reporting bugs.
So I uploaded a zip archive containing the essential 64-bit files. You guys can download it here:
You just need to download the zip, extract it to a folder and run UVK_en.exe. This will not affect the files in your current UVK installation. I will update the zip as new features are added and report updates here.
Changes in the file architecture of the new application include:
Removed UVK.dll, the Pictures and Icons folders. All those were replaced with one single resource library file: uvkres.dll.
Currently only the following sections are functional:
Welcome screen, Process manager, Memory modules manager, Autorun manager and Service manager.
New features include:
- The main window is now resizable in all sections, including the welcome screen. It makes a nice effect the semi transparent buttons floating over the abstract background when resizing the window.
- All lists now have a "Search" feature and a Menu button, for touch screens.
- Progress indicator or the creation of the lists, with option to cancel.
- The lists remain visible and active while refreshing.
