Best Packer For Win32 Lazarus Project
« on: February 20, 2005, 03:02:11 pm »
i see so many peeps complained about the 'mambo' size compiled lazarus porject(win32).some peep recommended upx to compress it.but i knew upx are not enough.there were better compressos which gave more security in less size!. the packer name is 'MEW' made by a cracker named "Northfox" ,this packer already widely used in cracker world.i try to pack/compress examples demo from win32 lazarus "imgview" !.compressed using "Mew 11 SE v1.2" with this following option enabled:
  • Delete Unimportant Resources
  • Slice Resources
  • Make Backup
  • Win 9X Compability
  • Use Lzma Algorithm too
  • Special LZMA (E8/E9)
  • Strip Relocs
  • Strip Delphi Resources

Result - Using Mew 11 SE v1.2[/color]
Original Size: 6.537 KB[/color]
Packed Size: 1.016 KB[/color]
Morethan 80% Size Compressed!
Speed When Loading exe as same as original

Comparing with Upx
Result - Upx v1.25[/color] (using option '-9')
Original Size: 6.537 KB[/color]
Packed Size: 2.515 KB[/color]
about 60% Size Compressed
Loading speed abit slow than original!

SO ?  :twisted:  wanna try ?
go here :
Mew 11 SE v1.2
Code: [Select]

Direct To file
Code: [Select]

Check the development section!

I think this topic should be sticky?

It's all nice and well but you didn't strip it.
Stripped UNPACKED executables are 1.2 - 1.5 Mb in size.
Currently LD(GNU) is broken in win32 and doesn't strip when lazarus tells it to.
You can remedy this by stripping manualy(put strip.exe in path and put "strip" in the "after run" part, or do it yourself each time)

When I did this and used UPX I had ~500kb filesize.

I have to agree with Almindor here, but if this compressor can really use LZMA thats is extreme compressing, the LZMA algorithm is better than WinRAR3 and is use by installers like InnoSetup(the one used by win32 Lazarus) and NSIS(Nullsoft Winamp Installer), unfortunately Crackers can't be trusted and that project is not OpenSource, until we see a project like this on SourceForge we have to stick to UPX.
The future must be... Fast and OpenSource so...
Think Open and Lightning Fast!
