DLMUP version has now been released!

We decided to sneak in another release to clean up the UI.

The Status window no longer shows blue selected cells in the datagridviews.

Also restored vertical scrollbars in the Status queue of archives to unpack.

Finally we removed the extra rows at the bottom of the datagridviews that were not needed.

DLMUP version has now been released!

Unfortunately DLMUP version never fully supported 7z.dll version

As a result of this, DLMUP version now only utilizes 7z.dll v19.0.0.0. Also fixed a Keep Source Directory bug which was using an invalid folder while unpacking archives from a network drive.

DLMUP version has been released!

This new release adds more clarity to the new button layout of "Confirm Settings" and "Minimize to System Tray". The "Confirm Settings" button checks all the settings are valid before it minimizes to system tray, and "Minimize To System Tray" only hides the application, it does not check the settings are valid.

Then unzip the DLMUP v1.1.1.0 - 32 bit package for Linux/Ubuntu (get it from the DLMUP Ubuntu/Wine Downloads page) into a directory and run it using the Wine command: wine DLMUP.exe.

DLMUP v1.1.1.0 now released!

DLMUP v1.1.1.0 has now been released with some great new features and fixes.

The new features (also listed in the Changelog) are :

New Feature - Timers now start instantly on pressing "Start Timers" button then they scan at the Interval setting
New Feature - DLMUP is now a single instance application.
New Feature - DLMUP now checks for free disk space before unpacking each archive. If there is insufficient disk space for the archive to be unpacked, the archive will be marked as "Bad" and skipped.
UI Fix - Changed "Preserve Directory Structure" to "Preserve Archive Directory Structure" to add clarity.
New Feature - DLMUP now supports "Keep Source Directory Structure". e.g. So if a source folder has an archive in: C:\1\2\3 and the target folder is: D:\Unpacked, it will unpack the archive into: D:\Upacked\1\2\3.

DLMUP - .NET Core - version 1.0

It took a few days of some heavy coding but DLMUP has been recoded to DLMUP .NET Core, so it can now theoretically run on macOS and Linux as well.

Unfortunately, WinForms support for .NET Core for macOS and Linux hasn't arrived yet so we can't properly test it on other platforms besides Windows yet.

As soon as .NET 5.0 arrives enabling WinForms support for macOS and Linux in mid November 2020, we will test it and release it on the Downloads page!

Thanks for everyone's support!!

DLMUP and Antivirus / Antimalware

It's been a long time between work on DLMUP and posts but we're well rested and back now.

DLMUP uses recursive scanning code to search for archive files in it's target folders.

Unfortunately, this now sets off MalwareBytes and some other anti-virus programs as a false positive match for malicious software.

If this occurs, DLMUP (for now) has to be added to the PC anti-virus exclusions list in order for it to run in the background.

Once we get the app properly signed with a proper certificate, this should no longer happen.

DLMUP Installer now working

The basic DLMUP installer is now up and running!

Another big step closer to a release date.

Saturday 18th of April 2020 02:01:54 PM
Coding and testing progress is going well

So far the DLMUP coding and testing has been progressing quite well.

We have managed to get through a huge backlog of high priority features and bugs, and as a result, we now have the luxury to start looking at nice-to-have features such as application logging before the program is released.

There's still no update on when we plan to release the app. The Wix Installer still has to be completed too.

Please keep watching the DLMUP News and Changelog to check on our progress!!

DLMUP one step closer to release!
