Windows System Control Center v3.2.9.1 Updated

billon on 14 Aug 2017
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Aug 2017
  • Suggested by joby_toss

Windows System Control Center (WSCC) allows you to install, update, execute and organize the utilities from various system utility suites. The program either works as an interface or as downloader. The program can work with both utilities suites downloaded or can dynamically grab and run the programs via a web connection. The included Update Manager can check for newer versions of the utilities already installed and can download and install the missing items.

Works with Windows Sysinternals and NirSoft Utilities suites, but also highlights Windows' own utilities.

Note: The setup packages are downloaded from the author's website.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder and Windows registry (Sysinternals utilities)
Unicode support: Yes
License: Free for personal use
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch wscc.exe.

Sorry, sl23, no insight on that, since I'm not a user of either SyMenu or PAF portables -- I prefer to roll my own... :)

Notwithstanding, if still interested, check the following forum topic: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21891 ...

The download page shows 2.5.1.0 as the freeware version, 3.0.0.0 appears to be the payware version.

Apparently UniExtract got into an infinite loop when I tried to extract the installer. I have edited the instructions a bit.

lintalist on 2015-04-27 12:36

For v2.5.0: I don't think civclient.exe is present anymore and it should now be freeciv-gtk2.cmd or freeciv-gtk2.exe which would start the game.

Driver Magician Lite v4.68 Updated

billon on 14 Aug 2017
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Aug 2017
  • Suggested by Carl

Driver Magician Lite identifies all the hardware in your system, extracts the associated drivers and backs them up to a location of your choice. Later, when you need to reinstall/upgrade Windows, you can restore all the saved drivers just as if you had the original driver diskettes in your hands. This is especially useful if you inherited an old machine or bought a white box system and did not receive all the original driver discs.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Windows registry. It remembers the folder that you last select to write the backup files to, which does not affect portability.
Dependencies: MSVBVM60.DLL MSCOMCTL.OCX
Stealth: ? No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Driver Magician Lite.exe.
