Third Quarter CHT Build Update #1 Aug 1st, 2018

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018, we posted some updated containers, which we've numbered Build Update 22C.00.01. The latest WebupdaterC10 version associated with this update is still: JUL.06.2018.C060718

Amongst other things we've checked the following translation files provided with HNDFBACKBUILDER.EXE (CHT Translation File Builder).

• HNDCUSTOMTRNFRENCH.TPS
- French Translation, one correction made
• HNDCUSTOMTRNDUTCH.TPS
- Dutch Translation, works fine, no corrections required
• HNDCUSTOMTRNPORTUGUESE.TPS
- Portuguese Translation, works fine, no corrections required
• HNDCUSTOMTRNUSER.TPS
- Polish Translation, works fine, no corrections required
• HNDCUSTOMTRNGREEK.TPS
- Greek Translation, has errors, rolled back to English

The build number was changed from 22C.00.00 to 22C.00.01.
As of today, August 1, 2018, exactly 60 CHT apps have been fully recolorized, with new images and icons, including some operational advancements. That leaves approx 140 that are partially recolorized (i.e. Splash screen, some icons). We hope to complete further recolorization work on these remaining 140 apps by years end.

The following apps have now been fully recolorized and are available both, in pre-compiled format AND in Source .APP format.

Check CHTTODO.CLW by regularly running the "@CHT SETUP" menu from your Windows Start Menu. This file documents ongoing CHT changes throughout the year. CHTSETUP.EXE will also offer you an opportunity to update your CHT Toolkit via Webupdater C10. Our "Webupdater" tool is smart enough to determine whether your toolkit requires updating or is already up-to-date.

If your Webupdater C10 is dated prior to APR.11.2018, you should visit our Subscriber Download Site to download (manually) our brand new "Pre-Installer", mentioned above, in the form of a file called CHTSETUP.ZIP as your toolkit is falling seriously behind the rest of us.

CHTSETUP.ZIP contains CHTSETUP.EXE and two security certificates. The included certificates are optional. However they are provided, in order to moderate the challenge raised by Windows 10, when you take the time to install the certificates first, by clicking on them one-by one. If you decide for the certificates first, please install them to "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" or best results.

CHTSETUP.EXE is what we call a "Pre-Installer". Feel free to run it any time in order to get a "news brief" about what we're up to. It opens a text file on your desktop, called CHTTODO.CLW that we hope you'll read regularly, bi-weekly, or even daily. What's in this text file is explained briefly below.

CHTSETUP.EXE also provides the latest versions of 4 or 5 CHT UTILITY APPS that we're currently featuring. We change these periodically to bring them foremost to your mind. They tie in with some of the "PLEASE TRY THIS" tasks which are part of our CHT "NEWS BRIEF". Included currently is a newer version of HNDBRWCL.EXE, the CHT forum browser, and 3 others.

CHTSETUP.EXE also creates a small, separate set of menus on your PC, located under the "&" symbol near the top of your Windows 10 menu. We'll keep this menu short, under 10 items, with some items changing from time-to-time. However, always found in this list are two key items: "@CHT SETUP", and "@WEB UPDATER C10". They're our key installation and upate applications.

HND_WBUPDATERC10.EXE is our "Installer-Updater". It detects when build changes or updates to builds have been posted, which you may not yet have on your system. To check whether there's anything new, by way of a new build or a build update, you must start "WEBUPDATER" from the "@WEB UPDATER C10" menu and click "Continue". It logs in and displays the last-available build number. Click "continue" again and it scans your containers to determine when any are out of date. If it finds NONE ARE out of date, it skips quickly through the available list. Whenever containers requiring updating are detected, it downloads these first. Finally, in step 5, the newly-acquired containers are extracted to your system.

CHTSETUP.EXE finishes by opening a file called "CHTTODO.CLW" located in /accessory/hnd/todo/. This text file contains our quite detailed "NEWS-BRIEF" updated several times a week. The file is structured in reverse chronological order, with the newest entries at the bottom. There are four distinct sections as follows:

reddot.png SECTION 0- "NEWS BRIEF" (UPDATED SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK)
reddot.png SECTION 1- "CHT TODO LIST" (WORK YET TO BE COMPLETED BY GUS 2018)
reddot.png SECTION 2- "CHT COMPLETED LIST" (COMPLETED WORK SO FAR 2018)
reddot.png SECTION 3- "DEVELOPERS - PLEASE TRY THIS" (PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT)
