Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Thanks for the answer. I have portable version. To update I have to move all contents from zip in the folder of previous version?

No official announcement is made regarding v2.1.8 yet.

But it's listen as 'Current release' on the Download page @  http://cue.tools/wiki/CUETools_Download
@c72578
built 2.1.8 and marked the release as 'Stable'.
I excluded the word 'Stable' when I added the link to the wiki's download page. A beta or nightly version isn't offered prior to release so testing begins with the release itself. In the past a release was tagged 'for testing purposes' and not declared "Stable" until tested by the users without reports of major issues. I consider 2.1.8 a 'test build' (for now).

Thanks for the answer. I have portable version. To update I have to move all contents from zip in the folder of previous version?
I suggest starting fresh (copy contents of zip to a new folder) and create a new settings file (\CUE Tools\settings.txt). Note: The encoder and decoder settings are being stored differently now.

Can I copy and past previous settings.txt after installed new version?

As I said, the encoder and decoder settings are being stored differently now. I haven't fully tested 2.1.8 using an old settings file to see if settings.txt is properly updated.

Ok, I preferred a clean installation with last hotfix. Tried to split an image with zero problems. :) Thanks Korth! ;)
