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 7.10 brings these changes:

- Added ability to import registry data from .reg files
- Improved handling of files with sections of zero virtual size
- Bug fixed processing particular exe and dll files (Watcom files)
- Bug fixed with memory leaks when create a new virtual process
- Bug fixed when adding files into virtual tree (files were not added)

Verdict:

A very powerful file-system virtualisation tool

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
