RLPack Basic Edition
RLPack is a tiny application which compresses executable files but still allows you to run them under normal conditions. Its features can be seamlessly figured out.
This is a portable program, so RLPack does not come with a setup kit. It means that you can save it to a USB flash drive or any other similar storage unit, and directly run the executable file on any computer, as long as the rest of the files are placed in the same root.
Furthermore, the Windows Registry is not updated with new entries, and no leftover files can be found on the hard drive after removing the program. Also, you can always have RLPack with you whenever you're on the move.
The interface of the app is represented by a standard window and a simple-to-follow layout. Loading an executable file into the workspace can be done via either the file browser or "drag and drop" method.
RLPack allows you to strip the TLS, relocations, the export table and unimportant resources, as well as to use the Windows DLL loader and preserve the overlay. In addition, you can specify the number of raw resources and compression method, as well as make RLPack create backups to keep the original files.
The program runs on a pretty low amount of CPU and system memory, has a good response time, contains a help file and quickly finishes a task. RLPack did not cause us any problems throughout our testing, such as hanging, crashing or displaying error notifications. However, the tool has not been updated for a pretty long while. Nonetheless, RLPack can be handled by users of any experience level for the simple task of compressing executable files.
