Happy.Camper2 on 2017-11-28 01:03

Hi PortableFreewarers,
Hope everyone had a nice holiday:)

So, at the authors website, Vista is not listed in requirements=>
https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/complete-internet-repair

I downloaded v5.0.0.3758 just for curiosity and the change.txt has Vista listed as compatible.
Sure enough, this version DOES work on Windows Vista.

Guess I'll send a message to the Rizonesoft Team about the incorrect info on their site.

Not keeping things up-to-date surely does waste people's
time and also prevents folks from downloading the product if their OS isn't listed as a requirement.

Long live organized people :)
Take care all!

smaragdus: My understanding is that they include all the popular plugins inside the distro. This is because plugin fragmentation and version issues were part of the reason for the Miranda NG code fork.

webfork on 2016-02-16 02:52

I really didn't like not being able to hit "enter" and have the message send. You can configure this behavior under options - Message sessions - General tab - Sending messages - checkbox "Send message on 'Enter'"

If that seems like a lot to go through to configure something fairly basic, that's kind of how this client works: a little confusing with a trade-off of intense customization.

This is a great tool.

Sure, Outlook can sort or search for e-mails by attachment, but I don't think it can do this across multiple mailboxes.

At work I have my own mailbox but need to access several shared inboxes. When contacts assure me they sent something, a default search in OutlookAttachView looks through every mailbox I have access to, and blindingly fast to boot.

masterjedi on 2014-02-25 04:04

If you have had an end user get mailbox is full notices and they have done EVERYTHING.. This is a great tool to show them that all items are can have attachments. Even their calendar items. Meeting invites are often sent with attachments such a agendas in word format, Power Point presentations and even the occasional picture file. This application scans them and finds them ALL. It has saved my first call resolutions stats.

The file vlcrc in the 'portable' folder has this entry :

[skins2] # Skinnable Interface
# Skin to use (string)
skins2-last=vlc_deepdark.vlt

VLC seems to accept relative paths (here at least). I have vlc_deepdark.vlt in the same directory as vlc.exe and it works OK.

Also with 3.0.0, no files/dirs left anywhere else. But creates a QT reg key :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\QtProject\OrganizationDefaults\FileDialog

I run vlc from a NSIS exe which deletes that key after VLC exits.

zorro on 2018-02-12 13:18

..at least with "native skin" there's no QT-Key left behind - I just checked it. When activating alternative skins, the Key appears but can be handled with a batch or portable starter like gbrao mentioned.

"Download the ZIP-Package" in description is a bit misleading: fuzzing around with the scripted download-button, you won't find a ZIP. At least I didn't find it.

@siegfried: I confirm your findings, even after adding a "configdir=" key with a relative path.

I'm not sure the program isn't portable like that, but it sure isn't stealth. In my defense, the method I mentioned was working in prior versions (see above). I posted the issue in KiTTY's forum: http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?action=forum&id=0653 ... :(

BTW, this update (and the lack of changelog thereof) is probably caused by a version and code synch with PuTTY, which was prompted by a newly found vulnerability patch:

"2015-11-07 PuTTY 0.66 released, fixing a SECURITY HOLE
PuTTY 0.66, released today, fixes a security hole in 0.65 and before: vuln-ech-overflow."

CloneSpy can help you free up hard drive space by detecting and removing duplicate files with exactly the same contents regardless of their name, date, time, or location. Also, CloneSpy is able to find files that are not exactly identical, but have the same file name. This can be an issue for example if you have different versions of a file and you want to find and remove the older versions. CloneSpy is able to find zero-byte files.

Note: The installer now allows you to choose between a 32 or 64-bit version of CloneSpy.

A lot of people here trying to delete multiples of the same image - I just wanted to give a shout out to Dup Detector, which is a great piece of software that does exactly that.

Dup Detector doesn't just do file-size/checksum analysis, it actually analyzes the images to find similarities. E.g. one could be black & white and the other can be color, or one can be watermarked, or one could be taken 2 seconds later because someone blinked & it'll find both and display them to you and ask which one you want to delete or if you want to keep both. You can choose how strict it is in its matching algorithm - 100% mach, 95% match etc.

You can even have it set up to automatically select which one to delete based on rules - e.g. the smaller one. Then you just approve the selection by hitting the space bar, or you can just let it do its thing automatically, or you can go full-manual mode and click the image you want to delete. Super fast way to delete duplicates and easy to use. I've used it professionally to manage large image catalogs that had a lot of duplicates of different sizes.

Unfortunately, it's not portable.

The latest version I have is 3.3.02 from July 8, 2011. You can get an earlier version from rareware.
