Windows Firewall Control v.6.9.8.0

Change log:

- Improved: Retrieving the group display names uses now shlwapi.dll. This fixes group names with dll names and resource ids.
- Improved: Default option is now the third one in the uninstall dialog. This will leave the firewall rules untouched during uninstall.
- Improved: The speed of importing a *.wpw file was improved by updating the internal cache mechanism.
- Improved: The speed of deleting multiple rules at once was improved.
- Fixed: Can't load language files which have a language code that is not 2 letters.
- Fixed: Experimental feature that auto allows certain paths/file names does not work anymore.
- Fixed: During uninstall restoring default/previous Windows Firewall rules fails if Secure Rules is enabled.
- Fixed: Deleting multiple rules at once may fail if Secure Rules is enabled.
- Fixed: Search functionality may result in a crash in Rules Panel and Connections Log.
- Fixed: Revert profile timer is not updated unless the revert profile is unchecked and checked again.
- Removed: Exporting/importing to/from *.wfw file (Windows Firewall format) was removed due to unreliable results. This still can be done from WFwAS, but not from WFC anymore.
- New: Added translation for Serbian language.

Windows Firewall Control v.6.9.9.0​

Windows Firewall Control v.6.9.9.0

Change log:

  • Improved: When exporting rules, the sorting order and filters are now preserved in the exported wpw file. On import you get back what was seen in Rules Panel at export time.
  • Improved: The import and the export of the firewall rules are fully async now. This improves the UI responsiveness during these actions.
  • Fixed: When duplicating multiple rules at once, they are created in the reversed order.
  • Fixed: Authorized groups list has a display issue where it displays also the internal group names.
  • Fixed: When creating a duplicate rule in Rules Panel the Please wait message remains displayed and Rules Panel needs to be closed and reopened.
  • Fixed: Secure Rules disables custom groups names in the latest version.
