CSVfileView v2.20 released as of 23-SEP-2015

Changelog

* Version 2.20:
o Added 'Display Filter' option (F2). The display filter is
somewhat similar to the SQL WHERE clause, for example... The
following filter will instruct CSVFileView to display only lines with
'Yes' value in the Connected column and the 'Device Name' column
contains a 'USB' string:
Connected = 'Yes' AND 'Device Name' CONTAINS 'USB'
o Added 'Load Filter' option to the 'Advanced Open' window. It's
similar to the 'Display Filter' feature, but instead of filtering the
file after it's already loaded , the load filter skip items during
the loading process, so the file will be loaded faster and
CSVFileView will consume less memory.
o Added 'First line contains column names' and 'Automatically
detect the delimiter and quotes characters' options to the 'Advanced
Open' window.
o Added /aload command-line option, for loading a file according to
the 'Advanced Open' settings.
o You can now specify any variable inside the CSVFileView.cfg file
as a command-line parameter, for example... In order to turn off the
'First Line Contains Column Names' option:
CSVFileView.exe /FirstLineColumnNames 0

CloseAll (aka Close All Windows) helps you to quickly close all running applications. The program brings up a window with running applications, lets you select apps you want to close (by default all apps are checked) and click OK. CloseAll functions just as if you were pressing the close button for each running app, bringing prompts about closing a program as normal (e.g. "Do you want to save before closing").

The program is ideal for moving from one application set to another such as from photo edition to office work or video production.

Voidwhereprohibited on 2010-04-02 04:12

Antivirus programs have a tendency to quarantine or delete Produkey, HeapMemView, and a few of Nir's password recovery tools as well. 90% of Nirsoft utils will pass inspection just fine. Nirsoft is NOT malware by design, and so long as you keep your firewall, user accounts and security updates reasonably current, you'll do just fine. I suppose, in the wrong hands, some of the tools might be mildly threatening to low-security systems. Chances are, though, if a skilled cracker set out to compromise your system, they'd likely use something stronger than Nir's utilities to do it.

Faust on 2010-06-07 15:00

What carbonize and Void said.

Nirsoft's utils are not malware and will not damage your system. However, because they usually poke around in your system looking for info, they use methods that malware often uses, and which causes antivirus programs to identify them as malware.

MIKLO on 2014-04-29 20:30

WOW no comments for a long time but be advised that ProduKey as well as all Nirsoft's programs are safe and are not malware,spyware,viruses or any other bad stuff for your computer. Nirsoft is now and has always been a very good reputable place to get software and many kinds of Apps that help us to use and program out computers how we want without the end user having the abilty to write the code necessary to accomplish this. So thanks so much NIRSOFT for all the great APPS I have used for so many years that have helped me run my computers. PROFFS

The program includes folder favorites, optional two-pane view, checksum calculator, file split/combine capability and more. Individual archives can be created with high speed or high compression settings, update options (including update, add/replace, synchronize), split volumes and more. Archives can be secured with standard zip or more secure AES encryption.

Although the official archiver for the open, high-compression "7z" format, the program also supports the creation of multiple formats including ZIP, XZ, BZIP2, GZIP, TAR and WIM. It will extract a long list of other formats, among them RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, RPM, VHD, VMDK etc. Even more formats are supported through third-party plugins.

7-Zip Portable is a wrapper from PortableApps.com, auto-detecting 32 or 64-bit automatically. Alternatively, X-7zip is also available.

RapidCRC Unicode is a hashing program capable of checking and verifying the integrity of files, folders, or whole drives. The program includes process priority, ability to pause/resume analysis, job queuing, easily copy hashes to the clipboard and multi-threaded checks. If using checksum files (e.g. .sfv or .md5) for future verification, options include the ability to generate for every analyzed file, directory, or a single checksum with all hash data.

Includes direct support for CRC hashing in the filename (common for anime releases) for example: "MyFile [45DEF3A0].avi") Other algorithms range from fast to secure, including SFV(CRC32), MD5, ED2K, SHA-1, SHA-256 and SHA-512.

A 64-bit version is available on download page. Based on the original RapidCRC but updated with extended Unicode support.

This is currently my go-to program. I tend to add it to the "send to" menu on machines I'm currently using and it works beautifully to check one or more files. Also, the ability to insert the hash directly into the file name makes so much sense. Just drag-and-drop it into the window and instantly know if there's a problem. Great solution to the multi-step check.

I think there is something wrong with the "CRC into Filename" function. This occurs with files that lack a file extension.

A search tool lets you quickly track down both files or specific hashes from long lists.

A recursive checking option (entire directory trees) is available in the options menu. The program can also use existing, standard hash files such as MHX, SFV, MD5Sum etc. to check integrity.

Supports 64-bit operating systems and available algorithms include from fastest to most secure: CRC32, MD5, RIPEMD-160, SHA 1, 256, 384 and 512. Can include one, some, or all algorithms available in testing.

I've been using this program a lot for the MD5/SHA1 and VirusTotal features for postings here on PFW. That said, I still prefer RapidCRC Unicode for hashing / checking lots of files.

Enternal on 2016-01-08 13:55

Two bugs to be aware of. The first bug is:
Make a new directory with some files in it. Drag the folder into MultiHasher and make MD5 hash calculations for all those files. Save the hash list in MultiHasher own hash format (mhx). Clear the list. Load the hash list. Drag the folder back into MultiHasher to "add" the folder. MultiHasher then hangs. Versions prior to 2.7.0.0 worked fine.

With 2.8.0.0+, a new major bug:
MultiHasher refuses to load mhx files that are over a certain size. From what I test so far, any mhx files that are larger than roughly 150 KB refuses to load when you drag and drop the mhx files into the MultiHasher window. Instead, MultiHasher will treat it as a regular file to be hashed rather than a list of hashes. If you tried to load the file manually (Ctrl+O), MultiHasher will do nothing for these files. Files that are less than 100 KB loads perfectly both ways.

Both bugs have been reported (1st bug about a year ago). However author never replied and even deleted the thread and my forum account. In other words, be aware of any potential new problems with new versions and always keep old versions.

These bugs does not occur if you use file formats other than their own mhx format.

Anyways, like Webfork, I now prefer RapidCRC Unicode over this. RapidCRC Unicode has been rock solid and all bugs that I have reported to the author were taken care of or were promptly responded to.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-12 19:25

I've been using PSPad for a number of years now and really like it. I find it much easier to configure and less complicated to use than Notepad++, its closest competitor. Also, it is still very much in development. Latest version, as of 12 Sep 2012 is V4.5.7 (2449) released 22 Aug 2012. It is my go-to text editor for everything.
There are a few annoying things with it however. It comes with 27 pre-installed languages which can be hidden but not uninstalled and there are only 5 slots for custom languages. I think that most people would not have a problem with that since the installed languages are the most popular but if you work in a shop using more obscure languages, you might be out of luck.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 13:59

I figured out how to uninstall the user-chosen (custom) languages but it takes a little work.
1: Open PSPad.ini (if you opened it with PSPad or if PSPad is running, save it as something else).
2: Delete the UserHighLighterName# value / data pair where the language is listed (the crosshatch is either null or a number between 1 and 4).
3: Delete the language key and all value / data pairs appertaining to it.
4: If PSPad is running, close it - then replace the PSPad.ini file with your changes. Voila! Your user-selected language slot is ready for another language!
I have posted a request to add a mechanism to do this automatically on the PSPad forum which is very active and the author of the software posts often - not what you'd expect from "dead" software.
BTW: Be cautious about using the installer - it seems to have had some problems. Use the zip file instead and unpack the files to a folder of your choice.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 14:46

If it's ok, I'd just like to make a few more comments:
Viniciusban writes that PSPad has no comment-out tool. I don't know if that was true when he posted, but it has one now:
Format menu / Add/Remove Comment.

Webfork writes that it has trouble handling Very Large Files (VLF). In my experience, there are only a very few editors that can handle VLFs without absorbing all available RAM and none of them (with the possible exception of UltraEdit) is as full-featured as PSPad IMHO. If I must view / edit a VLF, I always use HiEditor from WinASM.net as it is made specifically to work on VLFs without hosing the computer. Unfortunately, it isn't offered on PortableFreeware.com but it is completely portable, writes all settings to an INI file and is very fast.

Tom mentions that the "stable" version is 4.5.4. Currently it is 4.5.6 and was uploaded about 11 months ago. Beta version, available from the forum and updated August 2012, is very stable - if the latest version is wanted, grab it from there.

PSPad has its problems but they all do - that's why there isn't just a single text editor that everybody uses. While Notepad++ is (undeniably) the most popular text editor for programmers, I find its interface somewhat obscure and its learning curve a bit too steep to make it useful to me. PSPad's interface is much cleaner and simpler and, if I don't use it for months at a time, I can come back to it without worrying about relearning anything - that's why PSPad is my text editor of choice.

I reckon there should be a mention somewhere in the entry's description that Atom is based on (in fact, is like the ur-deployment of) the Electron framework [https:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electron_(software_framework)! Broken URL, please copy excluding the exclamation, paste and amend].

This software is not noisefree. Annoying and very disturbing cracks when using wifi with reduced bandwidth makes it unusable.

Mickey Dee on 2009-09-27 11:16

Phoner is at version 2.38 as of this posting. It works great from a USB stick. Tip: if you want audio ring tones and other sounds (feedback), then in menu "Options" sub-menu "Voices" change the settings for all (Incoming call, Outgoing call, Busy, etc...) from "x\install directory\Phoner\RingIn.wav" etc, to "..\Phoner\RingIn.wav" etc, etc... (without quotes). This way the sound files will work for any drive lettter your thumb drive gets allocated.

PortaFreeUser on 2011-05-26 13:54

I like this program. I recently used it to notice some suspicious looking port activities. I was able to close the ports down and then turn them to stealth using my firewall program. Then I used this program again and everything has looked normal ever since then. So I think this program may have helped me to stop some hackers or malware. All of my own internet activities and programs work normally so I really do think this program helped me stop something bad from happening.

GREAT for renaming using regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind. It also accepts the plus symbol (+) inside lookbehind. Other renamers does not support any of these, not even Advanced Renamer and Bulk Rename Utility.

It can apply multiple regex parameter separately for the same batch.

Issues are there are no way to apply regex only to file name and not to the extension. It also needs admin privilege to run.

This is useful for creating shortcuts on USB flash drives along with their appropriate icons, preventing an annoying batch window from appearing, and includes encryption and decompiler features.

I realise that this is a very old thread but the update info shows v3.0.8 was released on 1st Feb 2018. I've just tested Bat_To_Exe_Converter_(x64).exe, i.e. the 64-bit portable exe of v3.0.8. I used a 2-line BAT:

echo This is a test
pause

I compiled this, together with an icon, and submitted the result to VirusTotal. I'm disconcerted to see a score of 21/66 (https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/5ac7112fae2a252a5faa72199587cea903d97194cea45934df4fd1fecc326af3/analysis/1518532866/) and thought I would share this. Whilst I was expecting a few false positives (especially from less well-known AV products), 21 red flags out of 66 seems high. Does anyone have any recommendations for a different product? I'm retired and rarely need this so hoping for both freeware and portable.

webfork on 2018-02-13 22:15

RickC: You're right to look at high VirusTotal ratios as you did, but I have tested this program many times over the years without issue. As noted earlier in the comments, programs like this will always show up on scanners.

Interesting enough - when you visit the homepage and try to download the program, the button doesn't work, it's kind of greyed out (observation as of today, 21. Feb. 2018). Disabling all blockers doesn't help. The direct download link in this entry works however.

PassMark OSFMount v2.0.1001

billon on 22 Mar 2018
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Mar 2018
  • Suggested by Stone Tablet

OSFMount is a collection of virtual drive tools that allows mounting local disk image files as a drive letter, RAM disks and mounting CD or DVD images (for simplicity or speed). Supported image types include IMG, DD, ISO, BIN, NRG, SDI, AFF, AFM, AFD, VMDK (used by VMware), VHD (Virtual PC) and more.

The program is ideal for machines without a CD/DVD drive and, as most images are bit-for-bit copies of disk partitions, many programs will treat them as the real thing, enabling programs that require a program disc. For disk images, the program can give access to these files without booting or other required visualization software. RAM disks have a variety of uses including high speed caches, programs with frequent/intense disk reads/writes and some database applications.

Command line tools are also included.

Note: The developer warns: "it is recommended that 64-bit Windows is used when large disk image files are to be mounted."

whenever i try to mount an image (different formats), the message 'wrong parameter' appears and the new drive is not selectable? i am using the 64bit version and have admin rights.

@Midas CDmage works like a charm unlike PassMark OSFMount despite "being ancient". Nothing ancient about it. PassMark OSFMount couldn't detect my image file properly as @freakazoid experienced. In fact very few free portable mount tools could handle my image file properly. I'm surprised you don't use CDmage to mount......

Qupzilla is getting a little memory hungry. I have removed this from my favorites list.

If you want a barebones browser that uses little memory, I would recommend the latest version of K-Meleon.

smaragdus on 2017-02-04 16:56

@billon
At first look QupZilla version 2.1.0 seems to have improved significantly compared to version 2.0.2, but it uses far more resources compared to version 1.8.9. I did just a brief testing.

freakazoid on 2017-02-11 22:46

I can confirm what smaragdus said about v2.1.0.

Memory usage hovers around 120-140 MB RAM, but that is to be expected when the core engine is now updated to use QtWebEngine, which is powered by Chromium. To compare, I had an older version of Qupzilla v1.8.6 lying around and that used 210 MB RAM.

It's a good alternative to the existing Chromium-powered browsers, but if you're using a Chromium backend, you might as well use Chromium so you can gain access to the wealth of available extensions out there rather than some homebrewed versions that come with QupZilla.

Attention! Version 4.50 changes the ini-file to unicode (UTF16 LE) - as a side-effect the dropdown-zoombox in the menu (if activated) doesn't show up the percentage-steps any more, only %%. You can still type in the desired percentage and press enter, but the predefined steps don't work. This sure will be corrected, but if someone can't live with that: stay with V4.44 until next version.

zorro on 2018-02-28 06:26

As mentioned above the problems with unicode were solved. Zip now contains a text file with following advise:

>> Please start IrfanView and call (once) any of the dialogs:
- Properties (P), or
- File->Open (O), or
- File->Save As (S), or
- Batch (B)
to convert/set IrfanView INI file to UNICODE mode !

If the INI file is not converted to Unicode, some of the options (like filenames, paths or text options)
may NOT be saved properly and the feature may not be working as expected.

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.

JPEGView v1.0.37

billon on 24 Feb 2018
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Feb 2018
  • Suggested by infimum

JPEGView is a minimalistic viewer/editor designed to view images from digital cameras full screen and with highest quality possible. Basic image editing functionality is provided, allowing correction for typical problems as color cast, high/low contrast, orientation and under- or overexposure very quickly and interactively during review of the images. The program can view and save JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF, or WEBP. Includes batch rename and copy features.

While JPEGView is not intended as a replacement for a full-blown image editor, the included tool set of commonly-used modifications means such editors should be needed less often.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Alternatively, JPEGView Portable is also available from PortableApps.

Needless to say, this program is drastically better than the included image viewer for Win10.

alanc on 2018-02-25 05:00

I agree with the positive comments. I scanned all my ancient negatives and slides to huge tif files. This is the only viewer that opens these full screen instantly on my machine. Other progs have more functionality, and I have those, but as a graphics viewer on a Windows box, this is unrivalled.

To put it on the right click context menu for a folder, make and run a reg file as follows:
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\JPEGView]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\JPEGView\command]
@="C:\\Portables\\Graphics\\JPEGView64\\JPEGView.exe \"%1\""
_____________________________________________________________________________________________


where "C:\\Portables\\Graphics\\JPEGView64\\JPEGView.exe" is your path to the exe.

You can also use something like eXpresso[1], which has the benefit of being global and singular.

For simple, repetitive tasks that you don't need a big program to fully automate, this can be a surprising time saver. Two caveats: 1. Do not touch the keyboard or mouse while the macro is running. 2. If you want to stop a process in the middle, hit ctrl+shift+alt+P. Very, very happy with it.

I really love this app, but it doesn't come with multiline support. (You can only automate 1 line at a time and can't do paragraphs
