Enigma Virtual Box
Condense all the files used by an application into a single module

Enigma Virtual Box is a powerful tool which can combine all the files used by an application into a single module.

Why bother? If you can replace host of files and folders with a single executable then obviously that's going to be more convenient. But the real benefit comes if you're concerned that others may steal your hard work. Normally people will be able to browse an installation and examine or take whatever files they like: images, audio files, videos, DLLs, OCXs and more. But here they'll all be compacted into a single module, and not even extracted to your hard drive at run time (the unpacking occurs in RAM), so your software will be much more difficult to examine.

The program is surprisingly straightforward in operation. You need to point Enigma Virtual Box at your application folder, and its core executable file, and - well, that may be enough. We pointed it at an old copy of Paint Shop Pro, just because this behaves a little oddly and we knew it would be an interesting test.

Only a few moments later, though, Enigma Virtual Box had taken all the program's DLLs, data files and other bits and pieces, compressing them into a single executable. We clicked Run to try this, and it launched faultlessly; performance was just a little below normal as obviously there was some unpacking to do, but it was still very acceptable.

There are other options available if you need them, though, including optional Registry virtualisation, making this an excellent way to protect your software investment.

The authors also produce a more powerful commercial Enigma Protector build, though, which adds additional layers of security to prevent your code from being analysed. Find out more at the product site.

Build 7.70 brings these changes (see the entire changelog for more):

- Added support of FileNormalizedNameInformation class for ZwQueryInformationFile

Verdict:

A very powerful file-system virtualisation tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.17

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.16.17

• Introducing WhatsApp video calling. With free video calls, you can have face-to-face chats with your friends and family around the world. Data charges may apply. (requires iOS 8+)
• Search for the perfect animated GIF, right from within WhatsApp. Just tap Attach — Photo/Video Library and tap on the GIF search button on the bottom left to get started.
