Troubleshooting the upgrade of ActiveExit

If you've installed ActiveExit 18.10 on a computer that used to have an earlier version of ActiveExit previously installed, you may encounter the following issue: when running the ActiveExit configuration utility, all entry boxes are grayed out and pressing the Apply button results in a message asking you to use the Group Policy manager instead.

If this computer is a part of a domain that is indeed managed via Group Policy then you should follow the advice and continue managing the ActiveExit settings on the server using a GPO.

If, however, this is a stand-alone computer not connected to a domain network, then you could resolve this issue as follows:

  • Close ActiveExit configuration utility and run Registry Editor (regedit.exe);
  • Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Policies/WinAbility;
  • Delete the key ActiveExit under this key;
  • Close Registry Editor and run ActiveExit configuration utility again. Now you should be able to edit the settings and apply them to the computer.

If the above does not resolve the issue, please contact us for further assistance.

Not sure how to download?

August 6, 2018.

A new version 1.2 of Icon Shepherd utility is available now for download! In this update, we are introducing the option to purchase licenses for business use and remove ads displayed by the software. If you don't mind the ads, you are still free to use Icon Shepherd on one private computer at your home, free of charge. For other uses, an appropriate license must be purchased.

This update also adds the capability to change some options for Icon Shepherd:

The Options screen of Icon Shepherd 1.2

  • Restore last used icon layout on start

    If you select this option, then when Icon Shepherd starts to work (whether launched by you or started automatically when you log in to Windows), it will automatically restore the last used icon layout. The last used icon layout is the one that you restored most recently. (Icon Shepherd assumes that that's how you want to keep your icons).
  • Maximum number of layouts to remember

    By default, Icon Shepherd remembers the last 25 icon layouts. This option allows you to change this number (between 1 and 100).
  • Check for updates

    Use this option to control how often Icon Shepherd should check for updates.

July 30, 2018.

A new version 18.7 of Folder Guard software is available now for download and purchase!

This update corrects a security vulnerability reported to us by researcher Michael Myng that could allow a privileged attacker to cause a system crash by manipulating in certain way the contents of a configuration file used by Folder Guard.

We consider the severity of this vulnerability "low", because in order to be able to change the configuration files of Folder Guard, the protection must be paused or disabled, and also the user must have the administrator level access to the computer.

As usual, the trial version of Folder Guard 18.7 comes with a free license for 30 days of full use. If you have not tried it yet, please feel free to download it and give it a try.

And, of course, if you have purchased your Folder Guard license within the last 12 months, you can upgrade to this version free of charge (for the earlier purchasers the 50% upgrade discount is also available.)
