Ah come on...

You don't trust Dreadlorde? Or the virus scanning the Admins do to each and every uploaded file?

Just messing. But I think Dread is a trust-worthy guy.

You can compile it your self if you really want to.

It hasn't been approved yet. We're still discussing it.

We do a lot more than just a simple virus scan. When it comes to executables, we will often disassemble or decompile the program to ensure it is safe before approving it. As a result, executables can take a significantly larger amount of time to approve.

Though it should be pointed out that the executable has already been decompiled and seems to be OK, we still have a few things to discuss.

Patience

Not really too hard to decompile things made with .NET framework

Now comes the hard part... bug fixes :P

Question

Why would this get approved when compilation auto-installers are still not?
Unless this changed recently and we are now allowed to publish EXE again?

You knew I was going to ask

Since its made using C# it can easily be decompiled to check for any malicisous content. I want it to be this way so that anyone who wants to can easily check to make sure there is nothing wrong with it. I don't want blind trust or acceptence and I encourage people to thuroughly check the code for anything that could cause a user harm. If anyone comes accross anything that causes them concern I'd be more than happy to address their concerns.

Sorry. I misunderstood what Eas had originally said.

I know that it is not just a simple virus scan. Especially if it is a .exe file.

I had not noticed it was still being authorized.

Different rules for programs, yes. Once we find that the exe is safe we discuss if the program is good for the community, does it break the EULA and many other things.

So the initial upload approval always takes awhile.

No rush this is just an open beta

Also, if anyone has suggestions on what I could do to make it better I'm all ears

I just gave the program a try and it became non-responsive.

As far as I (thought I) knew EXEs were not currently allowed at all on WoWInt. This was decided after 2 files got corrupted and infected on your files server couple of months ago. Now if this changed I must have missed the announce

For what it may be worth, my only fear would be someone compiling in a virus/keylogger, naming the program the same and offering it on another MOD site that did not have as robust checking/validation as the fine folks here at Wow Interface.

Myself I know and trust anything that comes from WoWInterface. But people get mods from all sorts of places. Now, that is not WoW Interface's problem per se, it is a problem with ANY .exe program you download off of the net.

It is unfortunate that these are the times we live in. There is NO DOUBT the file Dreadlorde uploaded is safe. There is unfortunately also NO DOUBT that malicious people will attempt to use this sourecode to infiltrate user's. Sad, but true.

1. Do you have the Microsoft .NET framework 3.5 installed. (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en)
2. Did you try running it directly from the internet? (download it first THEN run it)
3. If not:
- What Operating system? (XP, 2000, Vista?)
- Did it load before crashing?
- Any error messages?
- Did you give it appropriate permissions? (It might crash if it detects it doesnt have the ability to move files)

I keep an eye out for these things. If I see it (or someone reports it) I'll contact the owner of that site about it and make sure as best I can that no one downloads it. If nessesary I will take legal action. If it's on my website or here it's pretty much garunteed to be safe. I have programs running on my server verifying importent files on an hourly basis. If it finds a problem it kills the server immediatly and notifies any and all of my computers about it.
