:mega: XLS Padlock 2018.1 released

XLS Padlock 2018.1, our Excel workbook security software, can now build Universal application EXE files: one single EXE file for both 32-bit and 64-bit Excel versions. And much more! Upgrade is recommended for registered users with an active maintenance.

What’s new in 2018.1

  • New additional VBA helper functions to pass more parameters to compiled VBA code.
  • Updated user guide with several new sections. For example: how to correctly apply some protection features.
  • Improved speed of VBA compiler for large VBA code files.
  • Improved error message if a Universal EXE can’t start the 64-bit mode for Excel 64-bit (for instance, if a security software prevents it).
  • Fixed: the ‘Every X days’ option in validation did not always display the X field.
  • Minor improvements.

What’s new in 2018

  • XLS Padlock can build Universal application EXE files: one single EXE file for both 32-bit and 64-bit Excel versions, but larger. The same EXE file will work with any Excel 32-bit or 64-bit version.

  • New validation by number of days after activation.

  • Fixed: “ReadSystemID” VBA extension returns different system ID than expected in 64-bit mode.

  • Fixed: activation and validation dialog boxes were not correctly translated.
  • Fixed: error “corrupted data received from application” if title has non-English characters.
