We’re happy to announce the new version of Unchecky, v1.1. Here’s what’s new in this version:
Added an option to exclude selected programs
This was one of the most requested features on our UserEcho forum, and we finally decided to implement it. Even though excluding programs should be rarely necessary for Unchecky, there are some legitimate cases when this feature can be helpful:
- As described in the UserEcho topic, several antiviruses can show a warning when Unchecky tries to interact with their interface. Adding the antivirus to the excluded list of Unchecky should solve this issue.
- In rare cases, an incompatibility of Unchecky with another program can cause issues. In these rare cases, the conflicting program can be excluded as a workaround, until we officially solve it in Unchecky.
Added support for handling offers in Microsoft Edge
Two years ago, Unchecky v0.4 introduced support for browser offers. Upon the introduction of the new functionality, only Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer were supported. With Unchecky v1.1, we are adding Microsoft Edge to the list of supported browsers.
Added support for many more installers
We’re adding support for new installers in every new version of Unchecky, and this time is no different.
There are some other minor enhancements in the new version. One of them, another highly requested option, is to be able to choose not to create a desktop shortcut while installing Unchecky:
