Paquet Builder 3.5 released - 01/07/2016

Our installer and 7-zip Self-Extracting archive creator, Paquet Builder, has been updated with new code signing features and improvements.

We recommend all users to upgrade if their maintenance hasn’t expired.

What’s new

  • Updated to latest 7-Zip and LZMA SDK versions (15.14).
  • Our code signing utility accepts SHA-2 certificates now (a Windows requirement in 2016).
  • You can choose the digest method for the digital signature: SHA-1, SHA-256 or dual SHA-1+SHA-256.
  • Dual code signing is possible on Windows 8 and later.
  • Time stamping uses “RFC 3161 compatible” timestamp server in addition to Authenticode timestamp server when possible. You can configure your own timestamp servers in the Environment Options.
  • It is now possible to use certificates available from the Windows Certificate Store (based on Subject Name or Thumbprint).
  • Notifications on Windows 10 are displayed upon build completion (and new Environment Option to disable the behavior).
  • Activation/deactivation uses SSL/TLS by default on Windows Vista and later.
  • Fixed corrupted icon conversion when generating a header bitmap automatically from the package icon.
  • Updated console compiler.
  • Several minor GUI improvements.
