The portable freeware orphanage

#1 Post by Midas » Sat May 19, 2018 11:55 am

There are a bunch of perfectly able portable freeware manifestations that for one reason or other have been abandoned, lost or otherwise lack any reputable source from in the Internet at large. Some of them are even present in TPFC's database, but the original poster is nowhere to be found. This topic is meant to provide an easy way to deal with such cases.

The present first post will index further ones in the topic, each one devoted to one (and only one, please) such orphan program. Of course my hope is that, in time, this can become a repository of hard to find information, such as download sources, developers, and usage tips. Please, feel free to add your own entries and I'll try to keep this post updated.

X-Pass v2.2

#2 Post by Midas » Sat May 19, 2018 12:06 pm

X-Pass has no webpage anymore but the (tiny) program states it was coded by Weird (giving it's email adress as weird173[at]yahoo.com).

Last X-Pass known version is v2.2 and user Kea has contributed a download link in the entry's comments (see https://www.portablefreeware.com/index. ... mment30292).

Virustotal gives some high level warnings for X-Pass files ("29/67", see below), but I reckon that given the nature of the program and the content of some of those warnings (e.g., ESET: "Win32/PSWTool.XPass.A potentially unsafe") they're fairly safe to ignore.

'xpass.dll': https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/dc44e ... /detection

Thanks for contributing, smaragdus. :)

Everyone should keep in mind that even programs that don't have a database entry at TPFC are still eligible to be listed here.
