  • Custom third party apps have new features, fully compatible with existing uvksr files:
  • If the downloaded file is a zip file, extract it to a same named folder: If this option is checked, and the app downloads a zip file, UVK will automatically unzip it to a folder with the same name as the zip file (without the .zip extension).

  • Download only if the files in the commands 2, 3 and 4 don't exist: If this option is checked, UVK will only download the app if the files corresponding to the commands 2, 3 and 4 do not already exist. Useful if you want to skip the download if a program is already installed.
  • Run only if the files in the commands 2, 3 and 4 don't exist: If this option is checked, UVK will only run the first command if the files corresponding to the commands 2, 3 and 4 do not already exist. Useful if you want to skip the installation of a program if it is already installed.

Use it if your app is ending prematurely because the main process ends before the job is completely done.

To perform a Super AntiSpyware scan, specify 1 after the keyword. i.e. 1. To make AswMBR automatically download and use the latest Avast! virus definitions, specify 1 after the keyword. i.e. 1. Feature requested in the forum.
  • Added bult in support to unzip files through UVK scripts by using a new custom command: . Enter the keyword, and then specify the file(s) to unzip in the lines below, using the following format: Zip file path | Folder to unzip to. Example:

  • The Kill processes using filters dialog box is now automatically closed after killing the processes.
  • New System info features: Now UVK tries to get computer, bios, motherboard and memory info directly from the SMBIOS tables before trying with the WMI. This should give more reliable information.

  • Some bug fixes in the graphical interface.when using custom DPI settings.
  • New feature: Users can cancel the execution of third party apps while they are running. Even though this will not terminate the current process of the running app, no further processes will be started.
