Settings are stored in an .ini file which is named after the application (e.g. InviskaFileManager.ini, InviskaRename.ini, etc). The location of the settings file depends on the operating system and version:
|Version||Config File Location|
|Windows Portable||In the application directory.|
|Mac Portable||In the .app bundle under /Contents/MacOS|
|Linux Portable||In the application directory.|
Older versions can be downloaded from here. If you've found a bug in the latest version please report it to the email address at the bottom of the page.
Very few people use 32bit operating systems any more. One major distribution says that only 5% of their users used the 32bit version, and many distributions, such as openSUSE and Arch, have dropped the 32bit version entirely. With the vast majority of processors now supporting 64bit, it appears time to move on from 32bit.
A number of people have requested I support older macOS versions, but unfortunately this is somewhat out of my hands. The applications are developed using Qt, which only supports the latest three versions of macOS and Windows. As such, when Apple releases a new version of macOS Qt drops support for the version three prior. For example, Qt 5.12 only supports macOS 10.12, 10.13, 10.14. I could continue to use an older version of Qt to retain support for older versions of macOS, but apple change the macOS SDK very frequently, which quickly results in older versions of Qt no longer compiling.
As far as I know, it means nothing. I was having trouble finding a .com domain that wasn't already in use, so I used a username generator to generate names until I found one that I liked and where the .com domain was available.
No, Inviska software does not contain anything that could compromise the integrity of your computer, your security or your privacy. If you look at the Softpedia page for Inviska Rename and Inviska MKV Extract you can see they have both been independently verified to "not contain any form of malware, including but not limited to: spyware, viruses, trojans and backdoors." Inviska software contains:
The message you're seeing is because the software is unsigned. The purpose of code signing is to confirm the software author and guarantee that the code has not been altered or corrupted since it was signed. While useful, code signing certificates can be quite expensive and they have to be renewed annually. I only have a few pieces of software with a small user base, so it's hard to justify the cost of a certificate.
The message is actually nothing new, and Windows has warned users about unsigned software since Windows XP. However, the messages used to be rather less alarmist, as you can see in Windows 8.1:
While the old message focused on providing users with factual information, the new Windows 10 message appears more intent on alarming the user, and Microsoft now falsely claim that "Windows protected your PC."
If you click "More info" you're given the option to install the software:
The Windows 10 message seems rather severe and one can't help wonder if it's less about protecting your PC and more about encouraging users to get their software from the Windows Store.
When you use Edge to download a piece of Inviska the below message will be displayed. This reason for this is related to software signing. For a full explanation see the above question.
Inviska applications periodically check for updates so they can notify you when a new version is released. No information is sent from your computer; the software simply reads the latest version number from this file on the Inviska website. If you do not want the software to connect to the internet the behaviour can be disabled entirely (seen next question).
Yes, this behaviour can be disabled in the Preferences dialog under the General settings:
The first option will check for new releases and display a notification once, and only once, each time a new version is released.
The section option will check for new versions, and the latest version information will be displayed in the Help -> About dialog.
The third option disables update checks entirely, so the software will make no attempt to connect to the internet.
There are a small number of rarely used codecs that are not supported for extraction. Any files that contain unsupported codecs will have their names rendered in red. The tracks which use the unsupported codecs will also be coloured red:
The box next to such tracks cannot be checked, and the tracks will not be extracted as part of any batch extraction jobs.
The following codecs are not supported:
|V_MPEG4/MS/V3||Microsoft MPEG4 V3|
|A_PCM/FLOAT/IEEE||PCM Floating Point|
It is unlikely you will encounter these codecs in an mkv file, as they are not commonly used.
