v3.3 seems to have removed the option to start minimized. Setting it to run minimized in the shortcut doesn't work. Window opens at every startup. Very annoying.

@ollie: author has a github site if you want to post about that:

FWIW, the solution to starting minimized is to use the command line option "/minimized" (no quotes) in the shortcut properties.

  • Optimized for computers with >4GB ram. If you are testing 8GB or more you need this version. If testing less than 4GB, 5.x may actually be slightly faster. Based on extensive empirical research we have updated the percent coverage metric; testing to 100% will catch all errors except for intermittent failures; to detect intermittent problems test to 400%.

but is it "stealth"?

Notice error in description. Website says it will work on Vista and Win 7. How do you update whenever the software developer indicates that package runs on newer OS platforms?

XVI32 has scripts and XVIscript editor, but HxD has not (yet) these features. Please look inside HxD forum

No better editor for viewing and editing large hex files.

boy genius on 2011-02-22 06:52

^ Opened up a 4 GB file. Editing/saving changes was possible; albeit saving was little slow the first time - after that saving is instantaneous. I am even able fill parts with random data, thus manually destroying the file. I haven't found anything else that could do such a thing. Notepad++, and others choke on such a huge file. I know there's other hex editors but this one satisfies.
