No one goes looking for the manual until they need the manual.
The link points to wfc5setup.exe
No one does open neither the offline chm file. Not even when it was there. The online PDF can be easily downloaded, if needed.
Thank you for the update! Only problem I'm seeing is the Dashboard reporting it's connected to Public.
Removed v5 first, installed v6. Also tried restarting the PC - W10 Pro 1809 x64.
I'm working on a fix on this. A new version will be published soon with a fix for this.
Too bad ... the 4 shortcut buttons from the dashboard have disappeared:
Browse to allow
Click to allow
Browse to block
Click to block
Will v5 rules Import to v6?
Hello. Thank you for fantastic firewall .
I uninstall v5, and try install v6 and have info- cant install, detected other firewall(comodo firewall)
V5 can install without problems, with this message.
In v6 when click continue nothing happen.
I no have comodo.
I run many times comodo uninstaller app. Nothing helped.
Cant install v6 please any help. I spend 5 hrs for fix this
They were not really useful. They are still present in Rules Panel where you can also check the rule that is added.
Yes. They have nothing to do with WFC version.
There is a bug in the new installer which prevents pressing the Continue button when another security software is registered in Windows Security Center. I will publish a new version tomorrow with a fix for this. Please use the link below to download the previous version: https://www.binisoft.org/download/old/5410/wfc5setup.exe
It seems that the WFC v5 user settings (not rules) can be imported normally into v6, so make sure to export them before removing v5. They will be reset, so if you've made many changes (Notifications exceptions etc.) it's convenient to be able to quickly import them.
I have similar problem to one reported by banita.
I my case WFC installer reported KIS firewall installed.
In fact, i uninstall KIS few months ago using regular method and additionally dedicated uninstaller.kavremvr.exe.
Still installation is not possible.
I have only WF active in Security Centre.
If it is not possible to install v188.8.131.52.0, try clearing the registry of the remnants of uninstalled COMODO or KIS applications with the search for keywords comodo, kaspersky.
If the Manual has already been downloaded and placed in the program folder, there should be a button to open it.
The problem is that these programs do not remove themselves from Windows Security Center where they still appear as registered. I will update the message to be more clear.
A new version will be available later today. I am working on all these issues. Thank you for reporting them and thank you for your support.
Similar issue here: I have Bitdefender Total Security installed, but have disabled the Bitdefender firewall. Can't install WFC.
alexandrud, where can I download v184.108.40.206 just in case I want to revert from v6? ghacks link is currently not working.
That's ok, I got it.
No problem, see 8 posts up.
Thanks. Missed that.
Windows Firewall Control v.220.127.116.11
- Fixed: The installer can't continue if another security software is registered in Windows Security Center with firewall capabilities.
- Fixed: In some cases, the connected location is reported Public instead of Private.
- Fixed: The uninstall process does not always remove all files.
- Fixed: The tabs width in Main Panel has a fixed width which prevents the tab name to be displayed completely.
- Improved: If the PDF user manual is downloaded and placed in the same folder as wfc.exe, when launching the user manual the local file will be opened instead of the PDF file located on the web site.
Download location: https://www.binisoft.org/download/wfc6setup.exe
All reported problem from version 18.104.22.168 are now fixed. The new version should work smoothly. Thank you for your fast feedback which led to a quick fix. Sorry for the inconvenience.
As always, please share your feedback regarding the new version.
WELL OK, great!
Error detected, two identical files, UK.lng = RU.lng
How can I use two different files with the same language code, for example, 1EE.lng and 2EE.lng? Renaming 2ЕЕ.дтп in DE.lng or another does not give the expected effect.
Thanks for the immediate update, everything works perfectly.
By the way, the release notes mention: "Checking for updates is made through http instead of https." Is this indeed correct? (edit: ok, perhaps this describes the situation before the update/fix).
Currently there is no Ukrainian language file. The file name must have the following format wfc??.lng, meaning wfcUK.lng.
While the string Russian file will contain 000 = Русский, the Ukrainian one will contain 000 = українська
Sorry, another post. I noticed the 22.214.171.124 update re-enabled on its own the "Log connections/Allowed connections" setting. I thought in general this was recommended to set to 'disabled' due to unnecessary extra resources?
