New jv16 Powertools build 5.0.0.513

Post by jv16 » Fri Feb 28, 2020 1:55 pm

New jv16 PowerTools build is now live.

You can download the new version from here: https://jv16powertools.com/downloads/jv16pt_setup.exe

How to update:
If you are using any recent jv16 PowerTools (5.0.0.x) - simply install the new version over the old version. No uninstallation is required or recommended.
If you are using an older version, please uninstall it before installing the new version, or install the new version to another directory.



Change Log since Build 484

Code: Select all

1) Bug fix: Choosing to clean the cookie or history data of only some browsers in the Settings window can cause the System Cleaner not to clean any browsers cookie or history data.
2) Bug fix: The "Congratulations! No errors or unneeded data found from your computer" message may get stuck in a loop and displayed over and over again after the System Cleaner.
3) Bug fix: The top one pixel of the message box window's buttons many not be visible if the system is using higher than 100% font size setting in Windows.
4) Bug fix: Fixed a misspelled word "erros" from the English user interface (should be "errors").
5) Bug fix: The check for multiple program instances is not always working, allowing user to run multiple instances of the program at the same time.
6) Bug fix: Internet Optimizer can edit the DNS settings set by installed VPN or internet security software suite. This has now been addressed by detecting these settings and informing user that the Internet Optimizer cannot be run in this case.
7) Bug fix: Running the Software Uninstaller can display an error message relating to converting date. This is a very rare issue, happning in under one system in one hundred.
8) Bug fix: The scan progress screen can display lines starting with an empty space character. This is a cosmetic issue but fixed now nevertheless.
9) Bug fix: The program can display gray color panels behind texts if user is using Windows with the classic theme or high contrast theme enabled.
10) Bug fix: Uninstallation of software with the Software Uninstaller can display the warning message of uninstalled software being similar to another software multiple times. 
11) Bug fix: The System Cleaner can list firewall policy registry entries which are recreated by Windows.
12) Bug fix: Adding a drive letter to the Ignore List will not prevent software from that hard drive being listed in the Software Uninstaller.
13) Bug fix: Closing the program too soon after running the Initial Setup can cause the Initial Setup to be run again on the next time the program is started.
14) Bug fix: System Cleaner's checkboxes are incorrectly aligned if user's system is using large fonts in Windows settings.
15) Bug fix: The program can fail to detect installed browsers in some systems and this causes the browser cleaning options of these browsers not to be visible in the Settings > System Cleaner and also not run during System Cleaner.
16) Bug fix: Some texts from the user interface cannot be translated, i.e. they do not exist in the English.txt file.
17) Bug fix: The color of the background panels in System Cleaner's report screen can be incorrect.
18) Bug fix: The program does not correctly Windows language if it was changed by the user. For example, if you installed English Windows but then downloaded a Windows language pack to change its language to Polish, jv16 PowerTools will not automatically detect and load the Polish translation.
19) Bug fix: The program does not close itself if it is still running when user starts the uninstallation of jv16 PowerTools.
20) Bug fix: Clicking to Abort a scan may cause it to get stuck to a screen with text "Starting ..."
21) Bug fix: Cleaning browser history data could cause browser bookmarks also be removed or altered in some rare cases.

Improvements:
1) System Cleaner now lists all the browser history and cookie data per domain, allowing you to choose what data to exactly clear.
2) The trial reminder or license information text at the bottom right corner of the main window is no longer clickable during the scan progress screen to avoid accidental clicks.
3) Improved the smoothness of scrolling the System Cleaner and Software Uninstaller result lists.
4) Improved the scan progress screen's user interface smoothness. It should now show and update with far less element sizes being changed for no reason.
5) The Settings window's Domain Whitelist and Global Ignore List features now automatically remove unneeded rows of data. For example, if you would enter "jv16 PowerTools" and "jv16" to the Global Ignore List, the row "jv16 PowerTools" would be automatically removed as it is already included in the row "jv16".
6) Some users have been confused by the Invalid Metadata errors found by the System Cleaner, thinking that such error means that the file mentioned would be deleted by the System Cleaner. This is not the case. For example, if the System Cleaner reports that Explorer.exe has invalid metadata, it does not mean the file would be deleted. Instead, the System Cleaner would only fix its invalid metadata from the file system record.
7) Improved VPN and firewall and internet security software detection.
8) Internet Optimizer now refuses to start if the system is using local network based DNS to prevent any compatibility issues, for example with locally run network solution, VPNs, internet security software or locally run servers.
9) If you enter full URLs to the Domain Whitelist in the Settings window, the program will now know how to process them and only add the domain names.
10) Added an option to delete unused translations and clear jv16 PowerTools cache files (Tools > Maintenance menu).
11) Added an information text to My Account's user interface to inform the user that an internet connection is required. This is not shown if a connection has already been detected.
12) Attempting to activate a license in My Account without newsletter subscription setting will now automatically scroll the setting into view.
13) System Cleaner will now show more information messages relating to the found items. These were designed to address some of the common misconceptions of the results.

There's something wrong with the link to installation file?
I downloaded the so called "new" version setup file (5.0.0.513).
I uninstalled previous version 484.
I installed "new" version.
The installed version is showing "484" as installed version :shock:
When checking for updates, the tool says there's a new version 513.
Downloaded it. Installed it over existing version. Still showing version 484 and checking for updates saying there's a new version.
There's definitely something wrong here.

You may have received the old version from a cache. I'd recommend you to try downloading again.

That's odd. I have downloaded the file 2 times from the link above and once directly from the website. Each time version 484 installed.
I even had cleared all browser caches on my system. This did not solve the problem.
Could jv16 PT website try to find a solution for such download problems?
Also it would be a good developer practice to complete the file properties the way the file version and product version details are shown to the user, so it is possible to check if it is the right version.

It's OK now. Version 5.0.0.513 installed.
I Cancelled Initial Setup after 6 minutes... No problem: the program runs nevertheless.
Internet Optimizer: IPv4 part works again, while IPv6 part on the other hand still doesn't.
I used TranslationHelper to update my Dutch translation. It's working fine. Nice tool for translators :D
Here is version 2.0 of the Dutch translation in attachment.
Please use it...

That is odd indeed. We have tested with three systems and all download the correct file. It may be a CDN related issue. Since the last version update, we have started to use a CDN system to improve file delivery speeds. They may not have updated their caches yet. We are investigating. But like I said, we were able to download the file correctly with many systems.

That is a good idea! We are currently setting the file version property only for the main program executable (jv16pt.exe), not for the setup file. I will find out if it is possible to add this to our final version building script for the future versions.

That is good news! Thank you for the updated translation! The IPv6 support for Internet Optimizer is not yet done as it is not a high priority item.

Oh, I am very sorry to hear! Could you be so kind and send over the Debug Zip file? It would allow me to confirm what happened, and to ensure you are in fact using the latest version (you may have received the older version with this bug in it from some browser cache).

PS. When you installed the program, it automatically created a System Restore Point. You should be able to restore all your data by restoring it.

You can restore System Restore Points from Windows. You can see for example this for instructions: https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows ... m-restore/

IMHO it's not such a good idea to run whatever system cleaner / registry cleaner if you are not familiar with the basic functions of the operating system.
