Changes in version 2018

  • Fully compatible with all recent Windows 10 updates.
  • Improved decompression speed for packages thanks to the upgrade of 7-Zip and LZMA SDK to version 18.05.
  • New variable operations available: Trim whitespaces, string length, extract a part of a string…
  • Packages run with administrative rights can now execute an app or open a document file as un-elevated process (with standard and not admin user rights). This is available in the Launch Program or Files page and in the Open a document file custom action.
  • The Open a document file custom action has a new Unelevated property to open a document file as un-elevated process.
  • Improvement: empty folders are no more created when the Component variable is set to 0.
  • New event for custom actions: After Shortcut/Registry Creation.
  • The After File Extraction event is now triggered before ShortCut/Registry creation.
  • You can now set empty values for variables (Perform operation on a variable CA).
  • New %USERPROFILE% pre-defined variable for retrieving the system path to the user’s home directory.
  • New custom action template to retrieve Windows 10 exact version.
  • Improved splash screen display while loading.
  • Paquet Builder’s behavior has been improved on multiple monitor setups.
  • Fixed: cannot create a variable with a value starting with a space. The leading space is removed at runtime.
  • Minor improvements and bug fixes.
