Thanks Skatezilla, a great idea. I personally don't have problems working with the command line having been through the DOS era but I have numerous friends who find that sort of thing like the worst headache. Already posted a link to here on 457 squadrons website with the words "Another must have DCS app....."

Wow! For the love of all that's Holy That's a significant piece of work!

Looks like it came straight from the ED Development Team (but I saw the note state states the opposite).

Excellent work. Really, really cool.

Great tool!

Would it be possible to add also the option to (de-)activate a module? I think that such a button would make a re-install so much simpler instead of going to each subdirectory and use the protect.exe.

Great idea! ED should think of incorporating this as part of the product.

Well done!
