We have further extended support for software protection of Python applications.

In order to be able to protect your Windows Python applications use PyInstaller or Nuitka to package your applications and then PC Guard to additionally encrypt and protect packaged applications.

When it comes to PyInstaller both One-Folder (recommended) and One-File PyInstaller bundling methods are now supported.

We've also improved support for different versions of Python targeting different operating systems (32bit and 64bit).

PC Guard's advanced overlay management (AOM) and internal overlay encryption are by default enabled for PyInstaller created applications.

This unique protection solution offered by PC Guard means that PyInstaller data which contains actual Python code of your application and is attached to PyInstaller loader stub (exe) will also be additionally encrypted.

It is now also possible to digitally sign protected PyInstaller One-Folder and One-File applications. 

PC Guard also includes out-of-the-box support for Python applications created by Nutika. Nuitka created applications have different structure so AOM and internal overlay encryption are not applicable for these applications.
