Difference between Personal and Professional license types

Both types of licenses include the same features and allow installation on any number of computers per a license, but Personal license is restricted to non-commercial or educational use, only whereas Professional / Business license includes all types of use, including enterprise, professional and managed IT, non-profit and government use, plus priority technical and maintenance support.

In other words, if you plan to use WinCatalog at home, it is enough to buy a personal license. But if you want to use it at work or for your business, you should buy a professional license.

WinCatalog 2017 Release 17.2

Hello, we’re glad to inform you a new version of WinCatalog was released.

Multiple Tags SelectionThe new version contains improvements and new features.

Now you can select several tags, locations or contacts and see all the associated items in the grid view. Use CTRL+Mouse click to add or remove an item to/from the selection, SHIFT+CLICK to select a range of items and CTRL+UP/CTRL+DOWN to expand the selection.

WinCatalog now Displays Search Queries on Search TabsThe other new feature is the optional ability to display search queries on the search tabs. This feature is useful for those who create several search tabs at the same time. The feature is turned on by default.

Thanks to the partial data loading, WinCatalog now improves the speed of displaying contents of the folders that contain large number of files and sub-folders.

The Administrative tab was added to the Program’s Options. It allows turning the debug logging on and off and switch to the ‘old’ scanning module that does not requrie .NET Framework.

Two issues concerning CRC32 and other hashes were fixed. Now WinCatalog correctly grags CRC32 values for files located inside ZIP archives (previously it grabbed negative values for some entries). Previously, the MD5 calculator locked the file and blocked CRC32 or SHA256 calculations. Now all three values can be calculated during the scanning process.

To download WinCatalog 2017 version 17.2, please click here. You do not need to uninstall a previous version of WinCatalog – just install the latest version over the existing one.

WinCatalog 2017 Release 17.1

Hello, we’re glad to inform you a new version of WinCatalog was released.

The latest version adds SHA256 hash calculation for files. The feature is turned off by default. To turn it on, please run WinCatalog, click the Catalog button (left from the Main tab of the Ribbon toolbar), and then click Options. Follow to the General Scanning page, find the Checksum calculation section and mark the “Calculate SHA256…” option.

Please note that changing this option affects to the new scans only. If you wish to calculate SHA256 for previously catalogued files that were not changed, please turn the following option temporarily off: “While updating a disk or a folder: skip unmodified files (speeds up the update process)”. Please do not forget to turn this option back on after all to speed-up future updates.

WinCatalog 2017 is here!

WinCatalog 2016 version 16Hello, we’re glad to announce that a new version of our disk catalog software WinCatalog 2017 (version 17) was released.

Advantages of the new version:

– A scanning algorithm has been completely renewed.
– A speed of scanning a disk has been greatly increased.
– A process of updating a catalog has been renewed and works mush faster.

As you can see, the new version does not include any visible changes (so, unfortunately, we can’t just tell you “please click here to see all the new features”), but it contains a lot of internal improvements for the scanning and updating processes.

The scanning module was rewritten from a scratch using a new platform and now it works much faster and reliable (but keeps all the same functionality). 2017 release is a huge step forward for us opening new capabilities for the future development and for the new features.

The upgrade to the latest version is free for everyone who has purchased a license for WinCatalog 2016 or a Lifetime Major Upgrades option in addition to a license for WinCatalog. In that case, a new registration key is not required.

If you purchased any version of WinCatalog prior to WinCatalog 2016, you can buy WinCatalog 2017 at a special upgrade price (50% OFF) and get a new registration key in order to upgrade to WinCatalog 2017.

You can check your upgrade status here by entering your existing registration key or email address that was used to purchase WinCatalog.
