When I run Avast anti-virus on this programme it tells me that it contains a Trojan Horse called Win32:Spyware-gen [Trj].
Can anyone confirm that this is correct? If so, perhaps it shouldn't be on the site. (ps... thanks Andrew - your site is my top site after BBC !)

ESET always blocks with false positive! Teach that guy's that it isn't!

Werner on 2012-07-26 09:53

I used that often on XP 32bit but on Windows 7 64bit it does crash. Guess this is because of 64bit, but I can't test this either.

As I use the rotate monitor multiple times a day, it would be great to control monitor rotation too.

fpelletier on 2012-07-18 15:37

Without playing with it, it seems to me that if I take the time to do the math, that the Left-Top and Right-Bottom field values will control rotation, however, it is currently a bit cumbersome. If there were a toolbar button for clockwise and another for counter-clockwise, that would be great. Oh, BTW, great tool!

Great piece of software. Tried fixing an archive in WinRAR but it failed. Tried this and it was able to rebuild the Zip file. Thanks for the post!

webfork on 2013-09-01 18:39

You only need this program when something goes wrong and I got a chance to test it when an archived ZIP file went bad. The program worked great and did exactly what I needed. The program extracts the files from the archive that it can, then re-zipps them out to a new one (that isn't broken). Since I then extracted said archive, part of me wishes there was an option to just extract the good files and folders.

(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 ?

I strongly suppose that, every time you enter a search, this program will connect not only to the Longman database but will also establish connections either to Google or Amazon (the two biggest tracking firms this poor, abused globe has ever seen). The website with the pure online version doesn't even load if I block Amazon. If someone else tests it and finds out that it doesn't connect either to Google or Amazon, I will download it. :-)

CSVed v2.5 released 25-APR-2017

Worthwhile CSV utility indeed, but annoyingly, the developer keeps neglecting to refresh his program
outdated internal date-stamp/version-ID tags:

c:\>sigcheck CSVed.exe:

CSVed v2.5.1 released 10-JUN-2017

webfork on 6 Aug 2017
  • 11MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 2 Aug 2017
  • Suggested by two

Resonic is an audio player and browser / directory player, built around the use of a file waveform to visualize the audio. The program is designed with speed and large collections in mind. Visualizations include standard waveform, multi-channel audio, and frequency analyzer.

Supports all major audio formats (including 64-bit float and multi-channel) including MP3, MP2, MP1, OGG, M4A, MP4, AAC, MPC, MP+, OPUS, SPX, WMA, WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, APE, OFR, ALAC, WV, TTA, IT, XM, S3M, MTM, MOD.

A pro version is also available, providing early access to the latest releases and other materials.

Category:
System Requirements: Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Free for non-commercial and non-profit use
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch resonic.exe.
What's new? New Features:
  • Pro: Batch Targets feature (batch processing.)
    Fixed copy/move/decode/convert target folders can be created in the new right sidebar
    (which can be toggled with F6, analogous to the left sidebar and F4) by dragging folders
    onto the 'Targets' tab.
    Each target can receive files and folders for whatever action is assigned to it.
    Additional conversion options are available through the right-click menu, ranging from
    simple copy/move to audio decoding (to .wav), sample format conversion (bit depth,
    sample rate, channel count).
    Targets are accessible from the (new) right sidebar (through F6, or the button in the status bar),
    which is shown by default on first start of a fresh installation.
    More features are to be added in future versions.
    See https://resonic.at/docs/batch-targets for more information.
  • Pro: Recording feature ('what you hear'.)
    Press the record button (transport bar) to record what is currently being played through Resonic,
    including pitch shifting, volume, seeking, live looping, and slice triggering via keyboard keys.
    Recorded audio is stored as .wav files in the 'Recorded Audio' folder in the Resonic user
    profile (in user 'Documents') which is also directly accessible through the browser.
    Click the status message after recording to start playing the file directly.
    This feature is intended to be used for sound design, creative idea finding, or as an audio sketch pad.
    To use recording you must use either a WASAPI or ASIO device for playback.
  • Pro: Musical spectrum and its note/octave estimation have been reduced to a more
    useful range of keys (C0..G8), bar scaling has been updated, bars are now colored
    by average intensity, and fading peak hold has been added.
  • Pro: Standard MIDI files are now fully integrated into the Resonic meta core,
    estimating MIDI file duration, reading copyright, timed markers with labels,
    musical key (first key signature change), track count (non-empty tracks),
    MIDI format (0, 1, or 2), pattern count (for format 2 files), PPQ, and tempo in BPM.
    If there are multiple tempo changes in a file an average tempo will be displayed
    in the file list, and the BPM will be put in brackets.
    As a special feature Resonic also displays the number of unique instrument patches
    used in the MIDI file in the 'Instrument Count' column.
  • Pro: Added 'Cropped Audio' to browser to quickly access this standard folder in the
    Resonic user profile (in user 'Documents'.)
  • Pro: Crop progress display in status bar,
    for both the "Crop selection" and the "Crop selection and play" feature.
  • Pro: Added right-click menu to A-B button for a few selection commands.
    Note that the Play, Stop, and Headphones buttons also have their own right-click menus.
  • Pro: The current mouse-selected region in the waveform is now automatically saved before
    it is modified or cleared, which means you won't accidentally lose the the region.
    The last region can be restored by right-clicking the A-B button, or through the marker
    button menu, using "Restore last selection."
    If a region already exists and a new one is created this feature toggles between
    the last one and the current one.
    This feature is also available as a global hotkey.
  • Pro: Much improved behavior of "Crop selection and play" feature (renders the selected
    waveform region to a new audio file and starts playing it):
    Before the new (cropped) file starts playing the selected waveform region is cleared,
    the current pitch settings (semitones/cents) are cleared, and the loop button
    is enabled (repeating the new file.)
    Note that the last selected region can now also be restored through the marker
    menu, or by right-clicking the A-B button ("Restore last selection".)
  • Pro: New global hotkey for "Loop on/off", which toggles single-file repeat.
  • Pro: AIFF metadata improvements, and reading comment chunks.
  • It is now possible to run different copies of Resonic Pro and Player at the same time
    as long as the database paths are different.
    You could for example start a portable Player, a portable Pro, another portable Pro,
    and a regularily installed Pro in parallel.
    Starting the same copy multiple times is not supported yet; it was removed
    during the Alpha to Beta rework for database stability reasons.
  • You can now CTRL-C the version information when the about dialog is open.
  • Headphones crossfeed presets (BS2B); right-click the headphones button
    to access them. (#1224)
  • New item in column popup menu to quickly hide the clicked column.
  • Pro: Metadata support for compressed AIFF files (.aifc).
  • Added indication of floating point files in bit depth column (using an 'f', e.g., "32f")
  • Pro: Additional metadata support for AES CART chunks.
    Available via columns: artist, title, category, cut id, client id, comment.
  • Pro: Metadata support for Scott Studios (SS32) Wave files, used in radio automation
    and broadcast systems.
    Available via columns: artist, title, cut id, comment.
    Available via waveform: intro end position, segue position.
    (requested: G. Zlot)
  • Pro: Segue (track transition in radio automation), intro markers, and other CART triggers
    are now read from CART/SS32 metadata and displayed in Resonic's waveform as a dashed line.
  • Pro: Addtional metadata support for BSI Wave files (Broadcast Software International),
    used in radio automation and broadcast systems.
    Available via columns: recording year, agency (as copyright), copyright / record label / publisher
    (as publisher), copy / notes (as subject), genre, music key, composer, album, tempo in bpm,
    and track number.
    Available via waveform: hook start position.
  • Pro: Added new broadcast columns "Cut Number ID" and "Client ID" (CART).
  • Essential fixes from the last Pro release were ported to Resonic Player.
  • Utility feature to resize main window to a fixed size, offering a selection of preset sizes,
    which assists in making videos or screenshots of a certain size.
    (see 'Menu | Advanced | Resize main window'.)

Improvements:
  • File list items appear faster when pasted (using the CTRL-V shortcut.)
  • Faster startup with bookmarks that point to mapped network drives, or network locations.
  • Folders can be moved and deleted more reliably as they are unlocked more intelligently
    when necessary, e.g., during drag and drop move in browser.
  • More detailed information in column popup menu.
    It's also easier to find the clicked column and its metadata group
    which both now appear in bold.
  • Opus decoder updated to libOpus 1.2.1 for reduced CPU usage during decoding.
    https://people.xiph.org/~jm/opus/opus-1.2/
  • MIDI renderer now more resilient in handling invalid XG sysex messages.
  • Some file list copy/paste improvements and fixes.

Corrections:
  • Pro: Playback of REX2 mono files.
  • Fixed taskbar quick controls (buttons) disappearing after a while on Windows 10.
  • Aborting a metadata scan in folders with lots of files could make one CPU core hang
    at a hundred percent usage.
  • Corrected several drag & drop related issues in the browser.
  • Pro: Fixed error message shown on every key press when Map temporary slices to letter keys
    is enabled (for fast slice auditioning) and there are no temporary slices set.

Just realized new version supports dsd in wavpack: "Support for high-resolution DSD audio files compressed with WavPack, i.e. compressed DSF/DFF in .wv files. Note that while DSD-in-WV saves quite a bit of space (in our tests 35-50%) it also takes a bit longer to decode (e.g. to prepare the waveform.)"

@two who are you to call @Realist a troll ? WTF seems a person that flames is a troll, IMHO he was just giving his take on the software review, which I happen to agree with, so am I also a "TROLL"? Sound=music is a very subjective matter which I have heard being discussed since the "4 track" days, as the saying goes one mans junk is another mans gold... at least that's the saying. Try and lighten up on the name calling as it serves no useful purpose here.

  • Suggested by agam

AutoText offers in a small tooltip window saved words, texts, phrases, snippets etc. during typing in any other program and will insert the selected item directly to the cursor position. In case of unsuccessful search, Space, Return, PgUp, PgDn etc. closes the small window, so that fast and liquid typing is not disturbed. Three different search methods can be set.

In addition AutoText monitors the clipboard and saves the last X text entries of the clipboard, which can then be retrieved as well.

I just keep trying and trying this App with my ToDos, but, it really scares the hell out of me. Every now and then I open that famous .stz file just to find out IT'S EMPTY AGAIN AND AGAIN. I really hope I'm the dumb ass that's missing something because this App surely promises productivity. I'd love to have synchronization and some color available for my categories of Tasks ToDo (like RED for Urgent and GREEN for completed, but... more colors)

Better report your problems at the forum, the developer usually responds to bug reports and other issues. Of course you are not dumb. Did you change the initial location of StackNotes folder- it remembers the location of the last used file.

Two caveats: The directory path where the tool is installed to may not contain spaces (or you'll end up with a "mount failed" when VCDControlTool tries to actually mount an ISO). And 2nd, using the tool with Vista will work as admin only and you'll see the freshly mounted drive only from within an admin CMD.EXE command line (or from within VCDControlTool.exe's built-in file browser), but not from Vista's Windows Explorer.
-Anyone else with a 1) portable, 2) free and 3) Vista/Win7 compatible ISO-mounting utility?

aeris on 2010-07-30 10:58

bitbuerster: Any external file system on Windows must be part of Installable File System chain in order to be visible as a drive, thus by design it must be installed -> cannot be portable.

Even this method here "installs", but uses a pre-loaded driver to fool the system. Functionality of any alternative program would be the same, as it would have to access the same driver in the same fashion.

In case (like me) you're left wondering what is this good for, here's a quote from the Wikipedia relevant article:

"ESE is notably a core of Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory. Its purpose is to allow applications to store and retrieve data via indexed and sequential access. Windows Mail and Desktop Search in the Windows Vista operating system also make use of ESE to store indexes and property information respectively."

Well that sure clears that up lol, but really like many apps a user has a need and finds a solution that works for them and then passes along their work for others to freely use. In my mind that's the way its supposed to be.

Nirsoft certainly offers useful apps! I use their Metar Weather every day. Nirsoft's Wireless Network Watcher is quite handy, too, because in addition to my home router, there's a free public one in my vicinity; it's often flakey when under heavy use, but thanks to Nirsoft, I can check on the conditions in advance.

NirSoft has great software, of which I use many different Apps that are so very helpful. When I have a problem or even if I'm just trying to find something NirSoft is usually my first stop to see what they have in the way of Software to help me find, fix, or understand something I'm trying to do. Thanks so much for the many years of help I have received from NirSoft, I'm always amazed at the new things that become available to make my life easier along with many other people.

NK2Edit edits the "auto-complete" entries in Microsoft Outlook. Auto-complete is a useful feature to automatically suggest items based on the first few letters of the recipient, but over time can gather invalid or unwanted contacts. The name comes from the .N2K file extension Outlook saves this email list to.

A 64-bit version (only for using with Outlook 2010/2013 64-bit) is available.

  • Fixed issue: NK2Edit failed to set the sending format for SMTP record converted from EX record ('Convert EX to SMTP' option and EXToSMTP script command).
  • Also, the sending format of the SMTP records created by the 'Convert EX to SMTP' option (and EXToSMTP script command) is now 'Automatic' (in previous versions, the sending format was 'Outlook Rich Text' due to the specified bug...).

Same with me, doesn't work from the stick.

nothing comes close to rsync. Go check it out then you'll agree.

I have used version 2.2.1 for years and have had no problems at all.
Lucas, PeZett, Midas, Meks: Sorry to hear you cannot work Toucan.
billie: 'nothing comes close to rsync' ON YOUR PC, you mean. I have no need to go to another backup program. Good luck with your rsync software.
