The new software abylon LOCAL-USER enables the simple creation of local Windows user accounts, whereby user name and password are freely definable. The local user accounts can be used in the workgroup and domain environment. Private users with workgroup computers can use our tool free of charge. Companies in the domain environment are charged a small fee.
With Windows 11 Microsoft has released a new version of its operating system. The first test of the abylonsoft software in the version 20.60.2 and 2021.10 under the new Windows version was successful. Thereby no problems occurred during the installations of our software. This test is still preliminary, but we hereby release our software products for Windows 11..
With the new version 20.60.2 and 2021.10, we have incorporated the following new features:
Abylonsoft based in Soonwald offers the new, practical file tool abylon FILECOPY. By special procedures thereby the copy process is accelerated. This has an advantage especially when backing up large amounts of data. Only files whose content has changed are copied. Even renamed files do not have to be copied in a time-consuming way. They only get the new file name in the target directory. In addition, the software also offers a simple interface for searching files and file contents.
Corona keeps us far under its spell and stops daily life in many areas. But the software from abylonsoft is constantly being developed further and is now also receiving a major update in 2021. The following is just a selection of the improvements:
- CRYPTDRIVE: Open cryptdrives can now be closed again via the desktop icon.
- PASSWORD DIALOGUE: New icons for on-screen keyboard and password obfuscation.
- TRAY-ICON: The software intercepts the double start of the tray icon.
- SHREDDER: Problems leading to a question dialogue are now collected and displayed at the end of the shredding process.
- SYNC-COPY: The synchronization process has been speedup considerably, as renamed files and directories are no longer copied.
- KEYSAFE: The cache system has been revised.
- LOGON: The selection dialogue for multiple valid hardware keys is now intelligent and selects the last used key as default.
In addition, numerous bugs and problems were fixed and the functionality under restricted Windows rights was tested and optimized.
The major update to version 19.x and 2020 will take place in February 2020, and we have now added a minor update in March. Besides the general speed optimization, all products have received interesting improvements. To mention:
- APP-BLOCKER: Permanent deactivation of blocked services
- KEYSAFE: Copy password with one click in the clipboard
- LOGON: Prevents the disappearance of the logon login window
- CRYPTDRIVE: Reliable locking of encrypted drives
- SHAREDDRIVE: New possibility to create an empty file and add complete directories
- UAC-GRABBER: Simply remove and add entries
- SHREDDER: Add your own files and directories to the job list.
All programs now offer the possibility to switch to admin mode and back. In addition, the registration dialog now always remains in the foreground and much more.
We use the Christmas season to update our software products. In December 2019 the software developers from Soonwald will release one product after the other in version 18.30.2 or 2019.12. Look forward to new features, bug fixes and other improvements:
Our English company presentation was getting on in years. The extensive website with our software products and services no longer corresponded to the technical state of the art. In the course of the renewal also the texts of the German homepage were translated again. This included not only the software descriptions, but also the tutorials and the glossary, where many lines of text came together. Should the error devil have crept in or our language skills from school are not sufficient, we would be pleased about a corresponding notification.
Our partner Blueflexx-Webdesign actively supported us with the technical implementation regarding PHP programming, graphic design and "structured data".
The software abylon LOGON Business for the use in companies, workshops and practices was fundamentally optimized by abylonsoft from the Soonwald in some places. Among the optimizations are the selection of the default account, the start of the card monitoring and services, as well as the synchronization of the accounts and settings.
Individual logon accounts can now be found more quickly in the settings dialog, e.g. via the alias for the hardware key. In addition, several logon accounts or cards can be selected simultaneously and locked or deleted in one go.
The administration server for the software abylon LOGON Business can be defined individually in the settings, regardless of the domain server or the workstation environment.
With the version update to 17.60.1 and 2018.12 abylonsoft has donated various adjustments and optimizations of the program interface and functions to its programs. For example, a hexagonal window with program name shows the start of the programs or the settings dialog can no longer open without admin rights. In addition, some unused or problematic functions have been removed.
Between July and Novermber 2018 abylonsoft has published some version updates 17.30.x. Here an excerpt of the innovations:
Since May 2018, the protection of personal data has been regulated in the new Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Since then, every company or association must offer a data protection declaration and have it confirmed by its customers as far as possible. In addition, important data should not be protected accordingly only since this point in time.
The new AntiSpy functionality has been added to the abylon APP-BLOCKER software for monitoring and blocking processes and services. This feature allows you to disable known monitoring services, block traitor Internet addresses and make important registry changes with a single click. Some other improvements and optimizations have also been made.
The software abylon LOGON-Business enables the use of hardware keys for Windows logon in company networks. Besides some improvements the AddOn "Logon-Jobs" has been added. This allows individual calls to be made during the Windows logon and before the Windows logoff.
Our popular software application abylon LOGON offers the possibility to log in to Windows with a hardware key. The new product abylon LOGON Business is especially designed for the use in companies. Hereby the logon accounts can be created centrally on a server or a workstation computer. The software abylon LOGON Business ütakes over the distribution to all connected computers.
Even today, many e-mails are still sent unencrypted, although there are many software products and offers to protect your privacy. This blog article introduces the Windows application BitMessage and its advantages over email. In addition, the technology is briefly discussed and the procedure for encrypted data exchange is outlined.
With exception of the software apps abylonsoft has published all programs in the version 15.90.1. Beside small optimizations and error corrections the program windows and dialogs were optically ürevised. Thereby all control elements moved as far as possible into the upper area. In the head bar on the left side there is the menu behind the familiar three bars. On the right side, frequently used buttons are displayed, such as for closing and minimizing the window or for switching to administrator mode.
Additionally 2 versions of our software products will be offered in the future. The functional range is identical for both setups, but one version is optimized for Windows up to 7 and the other version from Windows 8. The reasons and the corresponding download links will be published shortly on the homepage.
The software abylon APP-BLOCKER from abylonsoft lists all processes and services of the computer in one interface. So autostart entries or unexpected processes can be easily detected and deactivated. The new version 2016.7 also displays device drivers. Device drivers are also programs that can cause damage. Usually drivers are needed to control and interact with real hardware or virtual devices. With the software abylon APP-BLOCKER all drivers are displayed and can be deactivated directly in the user interface. For this, however, the software must be started with administrator rights. If the superuser mode is activated, existing drivers can also be uninstalled. Also to the drivers additional information can be displayed on the process info page of abylonsoft.
The German software company abylonsoft has fixed bugs, improved functions and added new ones to the current update of its Windows programs. Improvements are for example:
With the release of the minor update, we have fixed some little bugs in all our software products. Additional improvements are:
Has the download been downloaded correctly? Or was the file changed after it was last saved? To answer these questions, the software abylon FREEHASH provides all necessary functions for free. By determining the checksum of a file even the smallest change can be determined. In addition, the software creates hash values according to the hash procedures MD5, SHA1 and SHA256. These can be stored in the file name or in a separate file to determine future changes. Hash values can simply be copied into the software via the clipboard and searched for matches. In addition, additional information can be accessed online using the hash values.
Our software abylon APP-BLOCKER has made a big step with the version change to 2016. The correct path and the hash values for the individual processes are now displayed in MD5, SHA-1 and SHA256 format. These hash values are almost unique for each process file. If a process is unknown, additional information can be found on the Process-Info-Page on our homepage. Currently the functions of Virustotal have been integrated. The hash value is also used, for example, to indicate dangers caused by viruses and adware.
Many improvements and optimizations we offer in the current Version 2016.
With the picture cleaner abylon EXIF-CLEANER the user interface was optimized and the function for saving the pictures in reduced quality was added.
With the Autoverschlüsselung abylon CRYPT in the BOX all files in the AUTOCRYPT directory are still encrypted automatically in the background. In the new version, running encryption and decryption actions can be aborted via a switch. Opening and editing encrypted files has been made even more secure.
The abylon BACKUP-TUBE app is now available in version 2016. Now it is even easier to backup and restore data. The settings are stored in the user directory each time the software is closed and can be imported from there at any time. In addition, some problems in the user interface and when saving the user directory have been corrected.

In the course of the conversion to a new version of the development environment, numerous optimizations with regard to Windows 8 and 10 were implemented and some minor bugs were fixed.
In the course of the conversion to the development environment Visual Studio 2015 we have fundamentally revised the products abylon SHREDDER, abylon CRYPTDRIVE and abylon ENTERPRISE. Thereby numerous smaller and bigger problems could be solved.

Most computers have enough power and memory to run so-called virtual machines. Programs like “vmware“ and the free “VirtualBox“ offer the possibility to install and run additional operating systems. In the tutorial “Using multiple operating systems by virtualization on one computer“ we describe how to use VirtualBox and a free Windows 7 development version of Microsoft. This can also be used as troubleshooting for abylon CRYPTDRIVE under Windows 10.

In the <strong>new version 2015.9</strong> the software was extended by some functions, the operation improved and the search process accelerated. If the WLAN network requires a special IP configuration, the software changes the corresponding settings. When the software is closed, the settings are reset to their original state. In addition, the WLAN scanner now offers a blacklist. Unwanted WLAN networks can be moved to the blacklist to get an overview of many found WLAN networks. To increase speed, the software remembers unsuccessful connection attempts and skips these networks on the next pass.
