Seems like after a few months of inactivity they are still updating it.

What's new in version 6.5.0.0 (20.05.2021)

- New: The notification dialog displays now the count of blocked attempts for each
program that is notified.
- Improved: The keyboard shortcuts to switch between notifications were changed in
notification dialog to Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right.
- Fixed: Privilege escalation vulnerability was fixed in WFC service.
- Fixed: Some group names are not displayed correctly in Rules Panel.

Still doesn't work for me and cannot even install it at all. Been like this for a while now, shame really as this software is very good.

The author continues to be an active participant in Wilder's opinion exchange meetings. I think it's worth inquiring about.

Most of the ones in circulation these days are designed to configure Windows built-in FW, so there is not much difference in performance. In my opinion, these software serve as a director.
In this respect, this software is in a standard position.

I have decided to give it another try. Creating rules is easy based on blocked connections, but there are bugs. Some apps do not work, even when allowed, like windows updates, lol.

The software is not displaying any notifications, and it's blocking digitally signed processes like Origin and FIFA 21, despite being in Learning Mode. I think it got bugged...

Outbound connections notifications are disabled by default, but you probably already enabled related setting manually ?
I had never any issues with notifications of WFC, of course doesn't help in your case 🤷‍♂️

The default is no filtering for outbound, so notifications aren't needed. But I've changed to Medium filtering and Learning Mode a long time ago.

Do you have Display notifications enabled?

No, like I said, I'm using Learning Mode there, which should allow all digitally signed programs. But it's not doing that, and also not showing notifications. Yesterday I installed Origin and FIFA 21, none could connect to the internet and there were no notifications, I had to manually create a rule. Strange.

Some time ago, I've uninstalled Fifa/Origin and deleted their rules, maybe it remembers that I deleted the rules?

Impossible using Learning Mode to receive notifications for signed apps...

Just try to enable "Display notifications" on Medium Filtering.

Please check on "Rules Panel" on the right side option "Show invalid rules" there shouldn't be any entry (leftover former rule).

The problem is not that it didn't show the notification, is that it didn't allow it. Since it didn't allow it... maybe it treated the processes as non-digitally signed? That's why I was thought about notifications.

Sorry, I missed that. If you scroll down to "Advanaced notifications settings", what are the option(s) enabled there?
