Unchecky doesn't automatically uncheck extra software in the InstallIQ Manager

Anonymous 7 years ago updated by RaMMicHaeL 7 years ago 2
Hopefully Unchecky can be updated to uncheck InstallIQ downlaods. It does warn me about the software, but doesn't automatically uncheck it.

Here's a similar requests:

My answer there is mostly on Russian, but there's a short explanation in English.
The thing is there's no way to reliably determine that a button is a "decline" button. Installers can change. There may be errors in the logic of Unchecky.

The situation now is that if Unchecky makes a mistake, it either warns you on a valid item, or doesn't warn you on an unwanted offer. Not nice, but you can see that something is wrong. Now imagine if Unchecky makes a mistake and quietly installs a bundled program. We don't want that to happen. Thus, I decided against automatic button clicking.
It doesn't automatically decline the optional software. Sorry for the misinformation.
As far as I know, it's intentional that Decline button is not "pressed". This is up to user to refuse installation of 3rd party software. Unchecky displays warning only.
