AEP PRO 5.3.6 - Improved the re-encrypt behaviour under Windows 7. Improved behaviour of double-click->edit->reencrypt under Windows 7.

April 24, 2010

AEP PRO has nice possibility to work with encrypted files with ease with its click & edit feature.

To use this feature, you need to double click the encrypted file in your Windows Explorer. AEP will intercept this file and ask you for a password.

After providing correct password the decrypted document will be opened in the associated application (for example encrypted Text File will be opened in Notepad, encrypted Word Document will be opened in Microsoft Word and etc).

Now you work with the document as usually. Then you close the application (Word, Notepad and etc).

AEP detects this situation and checks - whether the file was changed or not.

If yes, AEP shows the message:

How to edit encrypted file or document

In previous versions of AEP this message was located under other windows on Windows 7.

Since this version, this message is always visible because it is located on the top of other windows.

April 10, 2010

Users of AEP PRO reported about strange bug. When it was installed on Windows 7 64-bit, it blocked some system commands of context menu like Computer->Manage, Run As..

We were able to reproduce this situation and fixed this bug. Now shell context menu works fine under 64-bit version of Windows 7.

AEP PRO 5.3.3 - improved the click-decrypt-edit-reencrypt function. Iimproved the click-decrypt-edit-reencrypt function..

April 3, 2010

Since version 5.0.0 AEP PRO supports ability to decrypt & edit file in single mouse click.

I.e. it is possible to double-click the encrypted file in Windows Explorer (or any other program), enter password and work with the file in the associated application. When this application is closed, AEP automatically re-encrypts the file using the same password.

In this version, we extended this functionality. When the decrypted file is opened in the associated application, but it is not changed, AEP does not keep the decrypted file. It securely deletes it now.

Also, we redesigned this password window. It was simplified. Some options were removed from this window.

AEP PRO 5.3.2 - Received "Compatible with Windows 7" logo. AEP PRO has been tested to meet all of the technical requirements to be Compatible with Windows® 7.

March 13, 2010

Windows is all about making your life easier. To make it easy, Microsoft recommends “Compatible with Windows 7” applications because they have passed Microsoft-designed tests to help ensure they install readily every time and minimize the number of crashes, hangs, and restarts you experience. This all helps ensure a compatible and reliable experience with any edition of Windows 7 including 64 bit.

AEP PRO has been tested to meet all of the technical requirements to be Compatible with Windows® 7.

The version 5.3.2 also includes several other enhancements and bug fixes.

Firstly, the menu item "About / Check for Newer version" was renamed to "Auto Update".

Secondly, the Auto Update feature checks for the presence of the new version just once a day, not at every program launch.

As you now, from previous AEP PRO's versions, the AutoUpdate feature can detect new versions of the product on the web server, download and upgrade itself to the latest version of the product automatically.

AEP PRO 5.3.1 - Added AutoUpdate ability. AEP PRO can now upgrade itself to newer version from website..

February 20, 2010

As it is known, every purchased license of AEP PRO includes free upgrades within 12 months after purchase. And we produce new versions very often (usually we do it every 2-3 weeks). Every minor update fixes known bugs (reported by our customers) and/or introduces new features.

But it was no very comfortable for our users to upgrade to newer versions. It was needed to uninstall previous version, then download new one and install it again.

Now, since this 5.3.0 version  the process is pretty simple!

Just click the "Upgrade to xx.xx" button in the "New version detected window" and AEP PRO will download the new version and install it fully automatically!

Also, SFX module is now digitally signed.
