    It must be some similar stupid system like Microsoft's SmartScreen. You can upload the installer to Virustotal to verify that it is not infected or something. I guess if enough people download it the warning will go away.

    No Firefox, Virustotal or Whitelistcloud warning here.

    They're standard veracrypt volumes. I log into windows (7, 64bit) with TinyWall running at startup, mount the volumes in veracrypt and then run a batch file that starts most of my apps. I don't know if all of them are unable to connect, but Thunderbird and Telegram definitely don't work. If I open "manage" in TinyWall and hit "apply" after mounting the volumes, the apps connect.

    Since I'm using a batch file anyway, it would actually be enough for me if there was a way to make tinywall "refresh" (same as hitting the apply button in manage) using the command line :-D

    I understand, but that's not what I'm asking. Option 1 encrypts a partition into a file, option 2 encrypts a partition in-place. Which one did you choose? Both options offer to create a "Standard VeraCrypt volume" in the next step.

    Oh, sorry, option 2, that's what I meant by non-system.

    Hi @ioniz, just letting you know the issue is solved and will be part of the next release. Can I ask you to test it on your system before?

    Hi ioniz, please let me know if this test build solves your problem.

    Of course, others are also welcome to test and report problems :)

    It works, thank you! My apps connected without me having to go into "manage" and refresh.

    Does TinyWall modify the HOSTS file ? Something did.

    Tiny Wall will block domain based malware if you tick the box to perform the function.

    I believe it shouldn't be doing this and it actually has a feature to block hosts file modification, was this setting enabled in TinyWall?

    It does if you enable the "Domain-based blocklist" feature. Otherwise it doesn't.

    TinyWall 3.2 released!
    I started writing a release post for the forum, then it ended up being mostly just a reiteration of the same points in the changelog xD. So let's just scratch that, and without further ado here is the list of changes:

    Code:
    3.2.2 - Maintenance release (25.10.2021.)
    - Add support for encrypted DNS in Windows 11
    - Add support for whitelisting on mount points
    - Add workaround for ImDisk issue
    - Fix memory leak when changing service failure action
    - Fix memory leak when verifying authenticode certificate
    - Fix memory leak when using an IPv6 address filter condition
    - Fix Connections list not sorted by timestamp by default (3.1.1 regression)
    - Fix possible null-dereference with VeraCrypt volumes
    - Update Japanese and Portuguese localizations
    - Deprecation notes:
        Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and certain older versions of Windows 10
        will soon not be supported in a future TinyWall release.
    Download from here

    Yup. The developer could write an HIPS module but he wants to keep it simple and that's why there's a hosts file blocker. Compatible with all your other security software.

    Hello, what is the oldest version of Wondows 10 to be supported?
    For certain reasons I am sticking with Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB (x64) Build 17763.1131 (1809/RS5).

    I have recently installed TinyWall 3.2.2 and sometimes it is crashing when I go into "Show connections". I run as a standard user on Windows 10 21H1 and do not have permissions to access C:\program files\windowsapps. I guess it crashes when there is a program from that directory in the list. If I run as administrator I have to use a different user and get the programs for that user and not me, so that is no good.

    ************** Exception Text **************
    System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\program files\windowsapps' is denied.
    at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)

    I'm not surprised and its also why you shouldn't install TinyWall over a remote connection. You really do need administrator privilege to change settings.

    It is not set in stone yet, but current likely candidate is v1903. However, when I said "will soon not be supported", "soon" is relative. Soon in terms of number of releases, not so soon in terms of time.

    You are correct about not installing over a remote connection, but you should be able to use TinyWall (once installed) 100% without admin privileges. Those who want to restrict access to TinyWall's settings can use its password protection function. Besides, tcarrbrion wasn't even trying to change settings.
