Next Release..?

(1/3) > >>

Admin:
Now that ZSoft Uninstaler v2.4 is out the door, what do you except from the next release (v2.5)?

I currently have the following planned:

* New tool: Empty folder searcher
* New tool: Autostart-program-manager
* New tool/feature: A merge of the 'scan-registry-feature' in a previous beta (note that this was removed in the final release of v2.4), the 'is-this-the-folder'-feature from when uninstalling and the folder wasn't removed and a new one that scans the start-menu and desktop for leftovers - all as a 'after-uninstaller-scan' (it should also be possible to launch it without a 'real uninstall' so you can use it to uninstall programs that doesn't have an uninstaller, or where the uninstall function doesn't work)
* Show info about selected program on the left
* Backup-routine so you can undo a 'delete' from the Installed Programs list
What would you like to see in the next release?

Oh, and Softpedia just made a review of ZSoft Uninstaller (v2.3.4 :() (original a 3 out of 5 rating, but it was beefed up to a 4 out of 5 one :)) - anyway, a user writes

--- Quote ---Overall rating could be "Excellent" if it could make every step automatically just like that. I hope this feature will be added in the near feature.

Anyone knows what (s)he means - how could I make the steps more automatic?

What would it take to get you to rate ZU a good 5 out of 5? ;D

v2.4 is great and I like it as it is but additional tools would make ZSU more powerful against any shareware competition. My favorite feature is Analyze and that is the main reason why I'm using ZSU even on Vista rather than "Programs and Features" that is extremely fast unlike "Add/Remove Programs" in Xp. What I would like to see is info on the left about selected program.

I'm not sure that user on Softpedia knows about what he wrote  ::)

Admin:
Yeah, the info on the left-thing... better add that to the to-do-v2.5-list to :)

Majomo:
For a uninstall application it's seems that the "New tool/feature"  (after-uninstaller-scan) is an enhancement logic and appropriate. E.g. the 'is-this-the-folder' is very appreciated by users - and if it can to be extend why not do that? A useful feature a must for those programs that wasn't analysed.

dkcreatto:
Three things to consider here.


First to enable Unicode for ZSoft Uninstaller's next release. As I have worked hard translating it (v2.4 is done, looking at v2.4.1 for new strings) in gu-IN & hi-IN (gujarati & hindi) languages just to find out that it dont support UTF-8 encoding. I'm sure many have problems with old ASCII standard, & would like to use comfortable UTF-8 (ie. Unicode) instead.

Another thing I would suggest is to provide "Before" Uninstall scan where we can scan all possible files, services, registries & directories relating to main executable or other components in main install dir. It would make Uninstallation more accurate.And of course there should be an option to choose what to keep & what to purge in "After" Uninstall scan wizard.

Last but not least is to provide *secure* delete option in Uninstallation wizard.

Hope you will find this helpful. ThankX for such a jewel.

She meant, I thought she might, that Installation Analyzing Process -Before & After Installation scans- should get automated. You can do that by either putting an *agent* running on system which tracks any change in system which can be regarded as installation. Or you can put some registry in system so that if any program tries to install itself registry will trigger 'Uninstaller' and then it finds the change & tracks changes to system, after all most install more or less changes registry.
