End Of Support For HackeyBlock

The Hackey PYE Project will not start, instead the original Windows version will just stop support, fading out. The plans are to fully stop supporting HackeyBlock around end 2020. This may happen earlier or later. I am sorry to say this, but the HackeyBlock project seems to be too hard to maintain. After the EOS (end of support) of HackeyBlock, other projects like FNew, Neveroffline and MuZikDL will have more time to be developed further. The HARR project will continue, but will only be updated to fix error reports.

I now wrote some code that should fix this, it selects one of the SFXs (either python64bit-sfx.7z.exe or python-sfx.7z.exe.) and with that Hackey does not need any installed-software besides itself anymore! This is something I struggled […]

Hackey AdBlock still depends too much on Internet Explorer

I disabled Internet Explorer on my computer (if you want to know how, [Control Center > Programs > Disable or enable programs], I don’t know, I just typed what I thought it was… but install Firefox before uninstalling IE!) and after that, links in Hackey don’t work no more, so you can’t click on the […]

Hackey is identified as malware by Microsoft

If this occurs with the 7-zipped versions, choose the workaround below or unpack the 7-Zip file to a folder (for example downloads or desktop) and open the setup from there. If this does not work, report it to me. This problem seems to be solved since the installers became 7-zipped. it remains online for reference […]
