Laurent Müller seems to have gone out of business, no Xupport upgrade for Lion and his web pages are empty. Pity, as others have said, Xupport was the best Maintenance utility. He was slow in getting out the Snow Leopard upgrade. Fare thee well if you are ill Laurent. Adrien x

This was my preferred tool for years. I'm sad seeing it going abandoned.

Abandonware. It hasn't been updated in years and the developer's site is gone. It was nice while it lasted but it has been incompatible since Lion. Annoying since it wasn't cheap.

This has always been my favourite. Some very powerful features. Lead the pack too, before there was a 'pack'. Since I installed SL (10.6) I have waited, hoping ... :-)

It's unfortunate, because I've used Xupport for years and have found it to be one of my most valuable utilities -- but it's been almost impossible for me to find out when, or even if, there will be a Snow Leopard-compatible version. No one at Applicorn ever seems to answer e-mail, and I never hear about updates until I receive a note that one is available. I sincerely hope that a version for 10.6 will come out soon, but in any event, Applicorn's business model obviously leaves a great deal to be desired. It's almost as though they don't care if they have any customers or not -- and maybe they don't.

This is a developer message to all users who have problems with invisible file. 1. This is not a bug at all - This is a feature. In Xupport-Settings-Finder there is a option called "Show hidden files and folders". If this option is activated the Finder will display "all" files (including hidden system files as .DS_Store). 2. This option can easily be reset. Open Xupport and go to Settings-Finder, deactivate the "Show hidden files and folders" option or click the "Defaults" button. THEN restart the Finder (or the Computer) to make the changes take effect. If you anyway have problems to make them invisible again, please contact me at http://www.applicorn.com.

I have a problem with invisible files. Xupport made them visible, but it can't make them invisible again. I tried it several times, but Xupport always fails to make them invisible. Xupport also has problems finding the Terminal... I wonder where I have hidden it. Ohh, it's in the standard folder, I haven't moved the Terminal out of it. But Xupport keeps asking for the Terminal. Xupport says it's the "swiss army knife" and that might be true, because both don't really work. :-(

I used Xupport 3.3 to hide icons from my desktop when I was using Tiger. I've upgraded to Leopard and I want to make icons visible on my desktop. Since Xupport is currently unavailable on Leopard, I can't restore the icons. I tried the uninstaller. Still not working. Any idea to resolve this problem? Thanks.
