@xor I am not sure if I understand you. But, refreshing in general spikes the cpu. If I am at the desktop, without opening any software and start hitting refresh, the cpu will be at 99%.

Link on software site is a 404

Smurf, that looks sweet, if it is portable I suggest this be added to database. (possibly as a replacement?)

There's a note:
D-Fend Reloaded may be installed in a portable operation mode (for USB-Sticks etc.).

My eyes lit up when I read that.

I have updated the extraction instructions. Chris Morgan had pointed out that DOSBox is not portable if launched without any command-line switches.

Thanks Chris. :)

Care to share your launchers, CornHolio? Please post at the forum thread...

CornHolio the Gringo on 2018-02-09 18:36

I have now tested MiTeC_Icon_Explorer_5.0.1, and can confirm that
Icon_Explorer_5.0.1 did not write to registry, only OS did.

CornHolio the Gringo on 2018-03-13 06:32

I have to point out that if "persistent layout" in preferences are set, then
Icon Explorer writes to Registry.

Have to mention that MiTec also make Network Scanner (atm v4.4.0) which
makes a Netscanner.ini file in Your profile under AppData\Roaming\MiTeC\Network Scanner,
if one set the equal setting in preferences.

QiPress Lite v1.074.3 Updated

billon on 10 Mar 2019
  • 946KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Mar 2019
  • Suggested by billon

QiPress is a monitor for the system keyboard and mouse, describing activity in a small, semi-transparent black box in the corner of your screen. Ideal for presentations, screencasts and program how-tos, the program can also behave as a diagnosis tool for keyboard problems, describe unlabeled keys, or provide feedback show when an application is ignoring input.

Settings are available to ignore key-sets to exclude for example mouse or keypad activity, as well as window color, transparency, fade-out and more.

A pro version of the program is available for commercial use, and has the same feature-set.

The program is stealth again.

I am Baas on 2015-06-02 02:52

@utilfreak

Thank you.

Also, QiPress triggers a User Account Control (UAC) prompt. What does it need it for?

utilfreak on 2015-06-03 16:09

@I am Baas
Thank you for your note, I wasn't aware of it as I have set UAC to the lowest level. QiPress 1.064 Build 6 will now trigger UAC only if it is running within:
a) C:\Program Files*\* OR
b) Root of a drive
This is generally required by programs that need to dynamically update their resources within those paths.

I'm getting an error with this: "TakeStock2 was unable to start. An error occured while opening the TakeStock database. Unable to read beyond the end of the stream." This is the same TakeStock database that TakeStock has just created on first run, so it seems something must be broken.

ravib on 2018-08-07 20:43

@olliebean, this (bug 183) has been fixed in TS 2 Release 53. Please see:
