1. What is Mini Crypter?

Mini Crypter is a tiny utility that is used to protect and pack Windows 32bit programs (executables). The executables crypted by Mini Crypter remain fully functional.

2. What's the program purpose?

Mini Crypter provides maximum protection against reverse engineering and antivirus detections, making it the perfect choice for developers who want to add tough-to-crack protection to their software programs. Besides the protection purpose, the crypted programs will become smaller in size.

3. What are the system requirements to run Mini Crypter?

Mini Crypter works on all 32bit and 64bit Windows operating systems versions in use: Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10.

The native Windows programs packed by Mini Crypter are compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit systems) and they won't need .NET Framework or other dependencies.

The .NET apps packed by Mini Crypter will need the .NET Framework for running.

4. Is Mini Crypter able to crypt any program?

The vast majority of Windows 32bit programs are working fine after being crypted by Mini Crypter. In the unlikely event your crypted program fails to run, the solution could be to crypt it with the compression option deactivated. We strongly encourage you to test the crypter before making a purchase decision. You should buy Mini Crypter only after you make sure it fits your requirements.

5. How can I use it?

Mini Crypter is a portable program that works even from a flash drive. You should just unzip the program (in a folder of your choice) and run it. Mini Crypter doesn't create shortcuts on Start Menu, Add/Remove Programs, Desktop and doesn't need elevated permissions (administrator privileges) for running.

The usage is straightforward: choose the file (executable) to crypt by drag & drop or click the 3-dots button, set the options (compression, icon, file version, delay) and click "Crypt File".

6. Are the crypted programs 100% protected agains reverse engineering?

The protection implemented is strong, but we can't guarantee something like that.

7. How can I uninstall Mini Crypter?

Mini Crypter is portable, so it can be simply deleted.

8. Are there limitations in the trial version?

The trial version can be used for 7 days and the crypted files show a nag screen at their start.

9. How can I know if my program works fine after being crypted?

Most programs are working fine after being crypted by Mini Crypter, but you can't be sure until you test it. That's why we provide a free trial version of Mini Crypter.

10. Are the crypted files detected by antivirus?

Mini Crypter is pretty undetectable. In the case of the full version, we guarantee the crypted programs will be undetected when scanned with the following antivirus programs: Windows Defender, Norton Antivirus, Kaspersky Antivirus, AVG, Avast, Malwarebytes, McAfee, Panda, TrendMicro.
