Frequently Asked Questions
If I get
asked a question or suggested a feature more than once, then I will add it
here. So, it is important to check this page before emailing me. Nobody has
asked me anything yet, so this page is essentially empty.
- Q: What language is Packman
A: It is written in C++ and assembly.
- Q: Do you need a beta
A: No, because I don't go through a testing phase. For example, the
0.0.0.1 version can be considered a "beta" and everyone that
uses it is a beta tester. Please send me reports of problems.
- Q: Mcafee flags Packman
1.0 compressed exutables as "New Win32". What can I do?
A: I believe this is because Packman 1.0 just came out recently and Mcafee
hasn't updated their virus scanner to decompress Packman 1.0 files. If
Mcafee cannot decompress Packman files then it also cannot verify the
file's saftey. This is why it spits out the "New Win32" message.
Until Mcafee updates their scanner to support Packman 1.0 files then this
will continue to be an issue. The only thing you can do is email Mcafee
and let them know that you, their customer, want this support added.
