    Oh I understand completely how boolean functions work, it's just the documentation (stating defaults) led me to (mistakenly) believe that the defaults would be applied as documented, unless overridden by responses during the questionnaire function (e.g., an argument with assigned default of True would be True, unless specifically responded to with N/False). When in fact the documented default values appear to only be applied for those arguments not queried by the questionnaire function, and therefore become False for any questionnaire items not responded to (i.e., simply pressing Enter) rather than receiving the documented default.

    It's counter intuitive in my experience, but now that I understand how it works, I know how to properly use the tools.

    Hello again, Thurask.

    I do so dislike bothering you with these challenges, but this time I have seemingly completed a successful run, but the result is that the ZIPPED folder is completely empty, and I can find nothing anywhere that appears to be the actual resulting 7z files. Here is a screenshot of how I initiated the run:
    Some autoloader tools-capture1.png
    Here is the section where it appears to compress the files...I notice the execution time for each compression seems to be rather short:
    Some autoloader tools-capture2.png
    And here is how it finished:
    Some autoloader tools-capture3.png
    Given my initiation selections, I fully expected the EXE's to be gone (and indeed the folder that contained them is totally gone...as expected), but I then expected the 7z files to be in the ZIPPED folder, but that is totally empty. I have searched my entire system and they are nowhere to be found.

    Your thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Stamping out bugs is worth the challenge.

    Do you have the latest 7-Zip? 15.14 was released on Thursday.

    For future reference, instead of redownloading the bar files, you can call archivist.exe from a command prompt in the same folder with the --no-download switch. So with all the bars in the root folder,

    archivist --no-download
    If you already have 15.14, or if it still compresses too fast, perhaps a different method?

    archivist --no-download -m zip

    Ahhh...that may have been it. I did have a rather older version of 7z, now with this version I result in the full set of 7z files, all properly in the ZIPPED folder. It may have been either that or the fact that I recently updated my Win system to Win10...I am sure I did not re-install 7z after that, just let MS migrate it as part of the Win10 install...perhaps some of the hooks didn't make it and archivist couldn't properly call it. Either way, it's working now.

    And thanks for the --no-download tip...made it much faster since I still had the necessary bar files locally. Still 02:47:14 in total, but skipping the DL stage did save time in the overall.

    Thanks again for all you do for the community. I'll be sure and post any other bugs I discover (if any).

    Wow great to see the development, the Priv Autoloader scanner will hopefully be used many many times.

    Thank you Thurask!

    Note: the tool I use to make the standalone packages broke something, so they'll have to wait. You're better off with using it through a Python install anyway.

    Just a quick note, the latest Git commit should make network operations (downloads, BB10 scans, Android scans, etc.) somewhat faster.

    • GPG agent disabled, should make running GnuPG related tools with GnuPG 2.1.x slightly less painful
    • DefusedXML library used, just in case
