Support of high DPI

The previous version of the program displayed blurry dialogs when you work on a monitor with high DPI:

The newer version supports non standard DPI and the UI should look crisp:

Portable version

Per many user requests we have added a portable edition of LockHunter. It’s also supplied in the form of installer but it allows to install the program to an external drive (or even to a cloud drive) and then use it on any computer. The portable version stores its settings in a configuration file (rather than the registry) and save log file to the folder of its executable. It doesn’t have an integration to Windows Explorer and as installable version requires administrative permissions. It will run on both Windows 64 bit and 32 bit (though, there are less than 5% of our users are still on it).

This our first experience with portable software so your suggestions or notes on how can we improve it are very welcome.

Bugs fixed

  • An error displayed when the program was maximized on the previous start

Update from Oct 27th, 2021

  • Bug fixed: Winget couldn’t read the program version, therefore it always displayed LockHunter requires upgrade

    Saved my computer, couldnt delete a bunch of shit due to a previous infection destroying permissions even though i retained admin control and ownership of the folders. lockhunter couldnt delete it for me, but enabled me to rename the folder and delete it through CMD. for some reason it couldnt find the directory before it was renamed.

    I can’t download the new version due to SSL error. Your page is not secure.

      Hi Mario,
      I’ve checked it and I can see everything is OK with the SSL certificate. Check the time on your PC, if it’s too old the browser may show you the error. If you still cannot download send me the screenshot of the error to support@crystalrich.com

    Hello! I really like this program. Any plans to include the lockhunter entry in the new windows 11 context menu?
    Cheers!
