  • Released on 12 Feb 2007
  • Suggested by Fluffy

FastStone Capture is a powerful, flexible and intuitive screen-capture utility. It allows you to capture anything on the screen including windows, objects, full screen, rectangle regions, freehand-selected regions and scrolling windows/web pages. It has innovative features such as a floating Capture Panel, hotkeys, resizing, cropping, text annotation, printing, e-mailing, screen magnifier and many more.

Reported to function in Windows 7 and in Linux under WINE.

Note: FastStone Capture went payware starting from v5.4 so I have made the last freeware version available (v5.3) for direct download as the license agreement does not prohibit redistribution.

@jimdorey: I'm a little confused why we had a listing that this works with Win10 -- it really doesn't. When this version of the program stopped being developed, Win7 wasn't even out yet. Anyway, I recommend trying another software package for that OS. I've updated the entry.

@jimdorey: v5.3 works fine on my win 10 x64 using a 1080p screen resolution. Maybe you're using a high DPI screen/4k monitor, and only the last version (8.4, payware, but worth every penny) works fine in that case.

Angry IP Scanner v2.21

billon on 27 Sep 2018
  • 108KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Apr 2004
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Angry IP Scanner is a fast IP scanner that can ping a range of IP addresses to check if they are alive, then optionally resolve hostnames, scan ports, etc. The program is useful for network administrators to monitor and manage their networks.

Note: Current versions of this program require Java. Until this is tested as portable, we are linking to the previous non-Java version.

Category:
System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Windows registry. But given the nature of the application, I think it can be accepted as portable. An option is provided to delete registry entries upon user's request.
License: GNU GPLv2
How to extract: Download IPscan221.EXE to a folder of your choice and launch.

@Craunch

One more reason to use the older legacy version instead, which, afaik, does not need Java.

Craunch: just added a note to the entry.

__philippe on 2016-01-30 17:10

As illustrated in the forum http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=78597
AdvancedIPscanner is NOT portable.

Besides, the package contains no less than 45 distinct files, including umpteen dll's, for a bloated total of 8.8MB, versus AngryIPscanner single 108KB *.exe.

Take you pick...;-)

Allelluia !
Imagine has Risen from Limbo, after a mere five years in hibernation...;-)

Complete Changelog history: (2003-2017)

Word to the wise:
Backup your current "imagine.ini" before merrily installing the new version...

While reaching for the changelog just now: "This site is now out of traffic. Please visit later." :(

__philippe on 2017-08-09 14:11

Imagine falling prey to its born-again success, I suspect ?
Its Byus.Net host is enforcing traffic choking, temporarily, one would hope...:-(

PS
To the lucky dames/fellows who grabbed the new distro before this recent server hiccup :
a full changelog is also included as a "whatsnew.txt" in Imagine_1.1.0_Unicode.zip.

@webfork
There's a "More downloads..." link on the developer's Website. "How to extract" mentions that, but nunz failed to RTFT.

webfork on 2013-06-04 20:23

Baas: no prob, thanks for direct-linking the 32 and 64-bit versions. Adding a notice about the adware version.

TP109 on 2014-09-05 05:39

In spite of the adware issues, I think this is the easiest-to-use and to setup CPU temperature application. It's on all my PCs and I've never had a problem with it. Just set it and forget it. The digital temperature display in the system tray is very visible and useful when resource-heavy apps are running. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher.

BinText v3.00 New

billon on 3 Apr 2019
  • 37KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Dec 2000
  • Suggested by __philippe

BinText is a file text scanner / extractor that helps find character strings buried in binary files. The program can extract text from any kind of file and display plain ASCII text, Unicode (double byte ANSI) text, as well as Resource strings. Additional useful information for each item is included in the "Advanced" mode. Uniquely, the program will show both the file offset and the memory offset of each string found.

Although primarily targeted for programmers, it can be used by anyone interested in ferreting out character strings buried within binary files.

Note: Although updated versions of the program exist, the 3.00 version is listed for reasons described in forums.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch bintext.exe.

Here is an old (2006) but interesting narrative about using Bintext for viewing Unicode strings in executables.

BinText at your finger_tip: (WinXP tested)

Place a shortcut to Bintext in your Windows SendTo folder so that you can quickly send files to BinText by right-clicking on their names and choosing Send To -> BinText from the drop-down menu.

You can set this up by right-clicking on bintext.exe, selecting Copy then open up your WindowsSendTo folder, right click the mouse and select Paste Shortcut

As an added bonus, files get automatically loaded in BinText "Advanced view" mode, no need even for clicking the GO button...;-)
