Better idea:

- switch form ZIP to 7-ZIP
- brew a better PWD than "japheth" and hide it better
- hide your HX files into something else looking innocent (PNG? OGV? ...) Hints about suitable tools (usable in DOS) are welcome :hungry:

I don't have any problems with the file. Maybe because I don't use those useless "antivirii" at all?

Remember some pretty similar "Federal Office" burning down books with "not tolerable content" just cca 80 years ago?

It is. FASM had the same "bug" too :clap:

PS: HX BUG #35:

Tiny WinFloor demo doesn't work (hangs with empty black rectangle, reacts to nothing except CTL-ALT-DEL)
