Information regarding the integration feature
If you have User Account Control (UAC) activated you have to run AS-File Crypt as Administrator in order to add/update or remove the integration feature. This can be done by right-clicking on the EXE file. (Note: When you make a larger Windows upgrade, this integration may be cleared, then you need to add it again.)
Salsa20/40 & ChaCha20/40
If you start the program with the parameter "/SalsaChaChaDoubleRounds", the program uses Salsa20/40 and ChaCha20/40.
If you start the program with the parameter "/HC256Variant", the program uses the proposed alternative variant of HC-256. This variant is expected to be slightly stronger.
