- Added descriptions in INI file to make it easier and safer to be modified.

This is great! Might I suggest that the ini options inside are sorted (organized) in some way, either by name or categorized by type? For example in mine the PDFProfile=Custom and PDFCustomDPI=150 are in the middle, and PDFSkipLayered=false is near the bottom, if anything, PDF related settings should be kept together, same with PNG, General, Statistics, you get the idea.

Not important or anything, just a tiny little suggestion.

Thanks. I will take a look to it, but guess it is not that easy, because Windows API, reorders them when they are updated.

This is one of the rare cases when I like the new program icon than the old one, thanks. :D

Thanks. All credit should go to Dorel from Megaleechers.com, who contributed hiring a graphic designer to create the new icon.

@nikkho

Hello Nikkho,

I have a question- why don't you use 7Z for the Portable (Full) release? FileOptimizer version 9.70.1745 (FileOptimizerFull.zip) is about 109 MB ZIP archive while when compressed in 7Z archive it is about 78 MB- a significant difference.

Can 7z be opened on a freshly installed OS's? Without the need to install 7zip first? I remember back in the day .rar files for example were not even recognized by the OS, needing a 3rd party extractor first, .zip is probably just more universal.

Image if 7zip used 7z for their portable version but to open it you needed 7zip or similar installed first, so you had to hunt down an exe version of Winrar or 7zip then install it, just to save some space, but now I'm rambling...

Yes. 7-Zip can create self-extracting archives: a self-extracting 7z archive is a mere 186KB larger.
As a lot of people are reluctant to distribute EXE files, self-extracting files of most formats haven't really caught on. No operating system outside of some Linux flavors can open .7z files without additional software.

To be clear, none of this affects FileOptimizer, which people assume will be an EXE, is hosted on SF.net, and -- due to its popularity -- will get analyzed by VirusTotal.

In fact I use 7-Zip for the FileOptimizer ZIP distribution, but outputing a raw ZIP format instead of a 7z one. Reason is that portable users, are used to deal with ZIP files, and not with 7Z, that require a separate tool.

Of course, I could use 7-Zip SFX capabilities, but I guess, if you want an SFX, you could use the installer version, which is also using LZMA, same compression algorith as in 7-Zip.

Now it's just a blank page with no icons, it's really annoying to use now, also why is there Chinese being shown in all the options?

Can you post a screenshot with the blank page?
The chinesse text in shortcuts, seems to be a bug in C++ Builder 10.2 for the x64 release. I am investigating it, but with no much luck.

Just tested 9.80.1769 (x86) and it seems to work fine.

Yes. Also the debug 64 bits verions does not have the problem. So I played with compiler optimizations, but still no luck.
