Icon-Info: = Neue Funktion, = Funktion entfällt, = Fehlerkorrektur oder Update
Various optimizations in handle management (allocate and share), as well as the window update in the progress bar in the File Explorer context.
Some virus scanners see problem copying the CG.Animations.DLL file to the Windows directory. This will be taken care of by the setup program in the future.
The display problem with the tray icon and in the taskbar has been solved. When the window is open, the software is displayed in the taskbar and when minimized as a tray icon.
Bei einem Fehler in der Schlüsseldatei konnten die Dateinamen nicht entschlüsselt und angezeigt werden. Auch die angebotene Re-Indexierung führte nicht immer zu Erfolgt oder verfing sich in einer Endlosschleifte. Diese Probleme wurden entgültig gelöst.
Problems with critical sections fixed!
The backup function for key files has been optimized. In addition, a restore function is offered if problems occur. A corresponding question dialog is displayed for this purpose.
2023-04-11: At the end of the major update, a few problems have been fixed and the speed is optimized once again.
All software products run more smoothly due to the revision of error handling (Critical Sections).
The function for reading out registy values has been revised so that foreign keys can also be determined.
The SubGauge progress bar did not show changes for large files.
The trace log functionality has been expanded.
The advanced settings can also be opened with admin rights.
2023-03-16: This small update has fixed bugs and issues and added some small features!
The ability of our software products to run on Windows XP has been tested and enabled, as in the case of abylon LOGON Business.
The TRACE-LOG functionality would be revised and strongly supplemented!
Access problems of the .NET DLL for animated graphics were corrected.
The Shareddrive PlugIn for the Windows File Explorer has been reactivated. Now the encrypted files of the Shareddrives can be accessed directly in File Explorer.
Instabilities of the Shareddrive software for multi-user access have been fixed.
2023-03-09: In the new version, the speed in all applications could be increased through optimization. The program abylon APP-BLOCKER has also received many new features, such as Windows update and Windows Defender permanently disable.
Opening files in subdirectories of the Shreddrive sometimes led to a protection violation, which has been fixed by an error correction.
For animated images a .NET component is needed. This is now initialized correctly, so that possible call problems are excluded.
By clicking on a column, all tables can be sorted chronologically.
By optimizing the function call, the performance of all apps could be increased significantly.
Problems in service connection and registry access were fixed.
If the execution from the file explorer via the context menu of the right mouse button does not work or the LOGON does not start properly, a change in the registry can remedy the situation. To do this, change the following value under "HKLM\Software\abylon\
The autostart of the program can be activated and deactivated via the menu (3 dashes).
When deleting directories, sometimes so-called ghosts remained. Deleted directories are now correctly removed in the directory display.
The waiting dialog when starting the software is automatically closed after 5 seconds in case of a problem.
The size of icons in lists and trees has been reduced to 28x28 pixels.
2022-11-23: Even though the version number has changed only slightly, numerous changes have been made in the last 6 months.
To avoid protection violations, the general startup dialog of our programs has been revised. This can be disabled in the registry under HKCU\Software\abylon\
By default, files to be deleted are no longer generally shredded. The shredder level has been set from 1 to 0 for this purpose and can be manually adjusted in the settings under "General".
An unfortunate user prompt when creating and opening an encrypted abylon SHAREDDRIVE has been revised.
Network access via mapped drives has been optimized to allow error-free access to files even with admin privileges.
Problems with deleting directories have been fixed.
A progress bar is now displayed for longer-term file operations.
When starting the program as a minimized tray icon, a short hint text is displayed.
The start dialog of the programs was further optimized and can be deactivated via the registry in case of problems (HKCU -> REG_SZ -> "FWUSEWAITDLG" = "NO")
2022-05-25: From this update to version 22.6 and 2022.5 all software programs of abylonsoft have benefited and received small or large additions.
Ctrl+A can now be used to select all files in the list. Also the sort order can be changed by clicking on the corresponding column. Here sorting is done by alphabet, size and date in the list view.
File operations in the program window were not displayed promptly, so that deleted files, for example, were still listed in the file list. This has now been optimized and if there are still problems, the display can be updated via the update icon. In addition, further optimizations have been made to increase stability.
Administration rights are no longer required to check whether a new update is available.
2022-02-25: Among other things, this update offers optimizations in the area of the GUI and the program start dialog. In addition, the software abylon LOCAL-USER was released for the first time.
Performance issues in the wait/start dialogs have been fixed and an animated wait squiggle has been implemented.
The progress bar has been adjusted and a sub-gauche for longer processes has been added.
Instabilities of the software in subfolders were fixed.
The automatic window adjustment under Windows 7 has been optimized.
Opening the document directory should now be more secure.
2022-01-22: The major update of all products includes various optimizations regarding stability and speed. Especially in the area of smart card support some innovations were implemented.
After registering our software, this is now displayed directly in the about dialog.
When changing the encryption secret (e.g. from smart card to password), problems were eliminated.
Der PasswortScrambler dient zum Schutz gegen das Ausspähen des Passwortes. Damit ist es Keyloggern erschwert das eingegebebne Passwort abzufangen. Bei aktiviertem PasswortScrambler kam es manchmal zu Fehlinterpretation der Tastatureingabe.
abylonsoft software requires in certain cases a so-called system context to execute actions. In this regard, the query has been extended so that this function also works without errors in languages besides German and English.
The encryption with smartcard (logon and data) has changed. For this reason, data encrypted by older versions should be better decrypted before the update.
From this version on, explicit support for ACOS, Mifare and Desfire smart cards is offered. A 32-byte AES random key can optionally be written to ACOS and Desfire cards.
The support of the CT-API for old memory chip cards (OLD health cards) has been completely discontinued. However, current EC cards and eGK (health cards) with CHIP can be addressed via the PC/SC interface and used in our software!
As of version 22, card access has been optimized by adapting it for special card types (e.g. ACOS, DESFIRE, MIFARE ). This has significantly increased the speed of card access. In addition, the card access is less error-prone.
There was a small error in the positioning of the settings dialog, which has now been corrected.
2021-10-19: All software products were successfully tested under Win 11. In addition, there is now the possibility to support the software development via a donation!
Initial tests of our software products were successfully conducted on the new Windows 11 operating system from Microsoft.
Partially occurring "hang-ups" seem to be due to the waiting dialog. If not necessary, this has been removed.
Häufig bieten wir unser Software über unsere Partner für Privatnutzer kostenlos an. Damit die Anwender trotzdem einen kleinen Beitrag für die Weiterentwicklung unserer Software leisten können, bieten wir nun eine Spendenseite in Zusammenarbeit mit PayPal an.
Der Passwort-Scrambler zum Maskieren der Passworteingabe im Passwort-Dialog läßt sich nun wieder deaktivieren.
2021-07-15: As from this version, the software is available in Spanish and French as well. In addition, Windows accounts can be created directly in abylon LOGON Business.
The software products of abylonsoft are now offered in French and Spanish in addition to German and English. We would be very pleased about improvement and optimization hints for the translation.
The selection dialog should now default to folder documents rather than the program directory.
2021-04-19: Primarily, the April update fixes many internal problems and speeds up the execution.
The "freeze" of the service under Windows 10 could be corrected.
2021-02-25: The major update again offers many innovations and improvements in numerous products and many functionalities.
Memory chip card support via the CT32 DLL has been removed.
When creating encrypted objects, the encryption algorithm can now be selected directly in the dialog for creating the encrypted element (Credential Provider).
All main dialogs got the Windows header again because there were problems with the individual header when moving, resizing, etc.
2020-03-07: In addition to minor and major optimizations, the new version offers new functionalities and increased speed.
All our modules can be switched into admin mode by the shield icon. Since this version the software can also be switched back to user mode. This is necessary for example, because Drag&Drop of files only works in the same context.
Directly in the encrypted Shareddrive or the Cryptbox an empty file can now be created. This file is selected directly.
In addition to files, entire folders with subdirectories can now be selected and inserted.
The icon menu has got the new item Create new file. The newly created file is then directly selected and marked.
Entire folders with subdirectories can now be added to the encrypted directory.
The positioning and font output was corrected and standardized in all waiting dialogs.
After reinstalling the software and directly creating a drive or account, the corresponding page of the settings dialog is displayed.
For improved readability, the last file is now marked after an action.
To prevent problems with the registry dialog, it is now always placed in the front panel (TopMost). Now the registration dialog shouldn't slip into the background anymore when clicking on another window.
Under special conditions, the password entry window may not always have the focus to enter the password directly. This was solved programmatically with a so-called mouse click event. Should this cause problems, this can be deactivated via a registry flag. For this, see the support page under password!
NOTE: Please note that the password scrambler converts certain special characters into other characters. If the program of abylonsoft does not recognize the password input correctly, this should be repeated with activated or deactivated password scrambler.
04.12.2019: Stability and speed improvement of the deletion, encryption and logon software and more!
Incorrect file names (e.g. music characters in MP3 file) could lead to an abort during file operations. For optimization, the user is now asked if the file should be corrected.
The progress indicator (gauge) is now more visible and clear
The files APM_LSMSNT32.DLL, APM_LSMSNT32x64.DLL, APMPNTSec.DLL and APMPNTSecX64.DLL are gone! This has no negative influence on the functionality, but accelerates the workflow
Performance problems after software reinstallation could be localized and fixed.
The speed of chipcard access has been accelerated significantly. It is irrelevant whether the chip card is used for Windows logon or encryption. Further optimizations can be made on request
2019-03-21: Numerous new features and improvements of the company software abylon LOGON Business and other software products
Via the icon Import you can now import data under Win 10 again.
The superimposed admin icons have been removed from the settings dialog. If in the future a function is selected for which no sufficient rights exist, this is indicated in a message window.
The setup routines of the program are only started after the setup wizard is finished.
2019-01-21: Various adjustments and optimizations of GUI and functions
In the settings under the tab Administrative settings there is now the option Allow settings dialog only for administrators. If this function is activated, the settings dialog can only be opened if the user is in the group of administrators
The waiting dialog when starting the application is now displayed as a simple hexagon with program name
Negative window coordinates are now intercepted programmatically. In addition, the unpredictable jumping of the window during slicing would be prevented.
Negative window coordinates are now intercepted programmatically. In addition, the unpredictable jumping of the window during slicing would be prevented.
The functionality RemoteAdmin was removed from all modules, because the registry access via the network did not work reliably since Windows Vista. With the software abylon LOGON Business the settings defined on the server are distributed to the clients via a restricted user profile
Drag&Drop operations over windows with different rights are now displayed with the no entry symbol. For example, no files from the File Explorer (user context) can be dragged into our dialogs if this was started with admin rights. This is also shown at the top of the dialog
2018-11-26: Various optimizations of all programs from abylonsoft
The stability of the software has been improved!

General error corrections
Internally the programs have been extended so that "InApp purchases" are possible in the future
Some windows have been standardized in color and design.
2017-02-07: Cloud Support, Tray Icon Conversion and SSO Optimization
The title bar of the dialogs
The abylon SHAREDDRIVE can also be used on various cloud services, such as OneDrive, GoogleDrive and Dropbox. All you need to do is install the appropriate client software from the cloud provider and offer the data in a directory on your hard drive (e.g.
Closing the program window via the cross icon now works with the first click
With activated AUTOSTART mode the abylon SHAREDDRIVE is started minimized.
Due to stability problems of the Windows File Explorer the Sharedrive File Explorer PlugIn is completely disabled. The access to the encrypted data now only takes place via the provided program interface of the abylon SHAREDDRIVE. The activation and deactivation of the abylon SHAREDDRIVE now only refers to the AUTOSTART of the program's own GUI after the login.
2017-01-18: Numerous optimizations and bug fixes of our apps
2016-12-19: Bug fixes, optimizations and special abylon FREEHASH improvements
The distinction between Visual Studio 2008 (Windows XP, Vista, 7, and .NET 3.5) and Visual Studio 2015 (Windows 8, 10, and .NET 4) is now correctly reflected in the update.
The time calculation of progress indicators is now displayed again in the title bar.
Directly after the installation no new Shareddrive could be created. The problem would be fixed
When setting the secret, you can switch back to the
2016-11-19: Different versions with .NET 3.5 and 4, as well as optimization of the user interface and functions
In the program interface, the operation menu displayed as a pop has been removed for better clarity
All listed software products are now available in 2 versions. In principle, both versions can be installed on all supported Windows versions. However, we recommend the version compiled with Visual Studio 2008 up to Windows 7 and for mobile use. This setup requires the .net-Framework 3.5. We recommend the version compiled with Visual Studio 2015 for Windows 8 and 10, which requires the .net-Framework 4.0 and the Redistribution Pack. As long as the downloads are not differentiated yet, the version for Windows 8 and 10 is primarily offered. To get the version up to Windows 7, the file name must be completed with the character string "vc2008_". This results in a file name of "vc2008_[setup.exe]"
The program dialogs (GUI) would be optically reworked and the usability would be simplified.
Incorrect display of progress indicator has been fixed.
