About UPX-compression of EXE-files there are different views. It is a fast loading from disk against a optimal memory consumption. Most of my programs (except those the are allways in memory f.e. PopMenu and AutoText) were compressed so far using the latest version of UPX - what I very recommend !
However, since the "complaints" about alleged viruses, etc. do not end, I have stopped from today (24-03-2021) the compression of the EXE files and everyone should decide for themselves.
With the command: "upx.exe -9 (1-9) program.exe" the programs can be packed and unpacked with "upx.exe -d program.exe".
I could not find any logical reasons when testing with different scanners, probably in packed state the reason is just similar patterns ...
As the sole programmer of all programs made available here for free, I can guarantee that they do not contain any "viruses" or "malware" and that such messages are just false alarms ...
Skeptics can use the current checksum (hashes) file: SHA-256 of all the ZIP-files on these pages to check the downloaded files for manipulation by others ...
Comments and suggestions are welcome ...
