Just tried this, sounds good. I'm currently using ActiveKeys, which I have been using to replace WinKey...

Unfortunately, Clavier uses 2mb of RAM straight up, whereas AK only uses just over 600kb...

If memory can be reduced, then I will use it no worries. But at least it's free and portable!

(Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).)

Quite so, strictly speaking...

BUT...

Currently, the "Uncompressed size" field is formally defined in the entry form as:
   "Total size of application files when fully unarchived/uncompressed".

We don't really want to open a whole 'nother can of worms about what exactly ought to be the appropriate scope of the "uncompressed size" field definition, with implication for every current entry in the Data Base, do we ?

For example, the TEMP environment variable specifies the location in which programs place temporary files." (source)

Previous question hasn't been addressed, so I'm foregoing RapidEE for now. I would really like to know if it addresses issues like the one reported here: http://sites.google.com/site/redmondlab/path

Craunch on 2012-07-03 13:45

Midas, I've just been playing with this and ran into the problem you described. On investigation I realised that there are two type of environment variables: Text String and Expandable String. Text String variables (orange tag) will not expand contained references to other environment variables when they are used. Expandable String variables (blue tag) will expand their references when used. You can change their type by F6 or via the right-click menu. These two types seem to be a feature of how Windows now stores environment variables internally.

A few judicious type changes got my environment where I wanted it to be.

Midas on 2012-07-04 20:27

Thanks for that, Craunch. Vital info, IMHO. I'll look into it ASAP. :)

Hi to all of you who use WordWeb-
I've read the license 3 times now & I still don't get it. If you get it, please explain it to me & after you do, I'll probably be saying DUH to myself.
Link to the license if anyone wants to read it....
https://wordweb.info/free/licence5.html

I've read all of the above comments & I still don't get a clue.

I'm in hopes that one of you can explain it to me.

Thanks in advance.

Mixture on 2018-05-16 09:53

@Happy.Camper2
The license clearly says that if you fly aboard a commercial jet aircraft more than TWICE in a 12 month time period, you are not being 'green'. This company believes in environmentalism, and hates normal people like you and I who drive cars, flies aboard aircraft, and use gas-powered lawn mowers. That's why I don't use this weird software and use The Sage instead.

Happy.Camper2 on 2018-05-16 14:40

Hi Mixture-
[1]I've never flown on a jet or any other in the sky vehicles
[2]I don't have a car since a few years ago
[3]I don't have any gas-powered gizmos

Maybe I'm just 'green' enough to use WordWeb if need be.
I also keep The Sage on hand if I need it.

Thank you for explaining that strange license to me and the way
its written up does seem kinda weird to me.

PDF-XChange Viewer is a feature-rich program that displays multiple PDF documents within a tabbed interface. Edit features include the ability to rotate documents, add comments/annotations to any PDF file, apply custom stamps from any image/PDF file/Windows clipboard, mark-up pages with text and objects, and type directly on any PDF page in "Typewriter" mode. The program supports exporting to BMP/JPEG/TIFF/PNG etc., or extracting text from a PDF page/file. Additional features include capturing the document with the snapshot tool (copies an area to clipboard), measuring tools for distance, area and perimeter, and more. A recommended picture-to-text OCR plugin is available (thanks Bruce) as is a PDF help file.

Reported as functional on Mac/Linux under WINE. Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths, with an OCR plugin and help file available from the website as separate downloads.

Note:

  • The free PDF-XChange Viewer lacks some features present in the registered version (payware) and, while some "Pro" features can still be used, they'll add a watermark to the document edited upon saving

The link has been updated to the website itself. For apps where the download link changes with each version, you're not supposed to direct link to the download (part of the PFC guidelines on the page: "Do not enter the direct URL to the file if the filename is version dependent, or the author forbids external links. For such cases, enter the URL to the download page instead.") Otherwise, you get the old version when the app has been updated but the PFC listing has not.

ArsClip remembers the most recent clipboard entries and allows you to quickly paste one or multiple items into a program by pressing a hotkey (by default Ctrl+Shift+Z). You can configure it to monitor both text and other data types and lets you create permanent items that are always visible. There are also multiple ways for entering items into a program, including a "form mode" for pasting to multiple fields in one step (e.g. name, date, address etc.).

Agree with Crid. Might have had some issues initially, but I use it regularly each day without issues. Its such a timesaver. And having the shortcut to pop up the menu is superb. Not seen any other clipboard utlities come close to this one.

hamasaki on 2013-07-29 12:41

I think Arsclip makes all other clipboard utilities redundant, its that good. Could have a better name though.

From their website: R-Undelete run in the free Home mode has no limitations for recovery from FAT partitions and also allows you to evaluate how the software recovers lost files from the NTFS file system, for which it has a limitation to recover files larger than 64KB. [filelist] can be previewed to estimate recovery chances before you upgrade the Home version for recovery from NTFS partitions

Seems that recovery from NTFS costs money and thus makes this application almost useless today.

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
