Thanks! I have verified that creating aicon.ini in the app folder does work. I have updated the description to include this.

Seems to Work perfect on Vista SP1

Wizzer at Colour4Free on 2009-09-07 12:06

Tried most of the icon editors listed and found that the application works in XP SP3 and Vista.
I confirm that placing aicon.ini in the application folder works.
The small size and with all the basic tools needed to extract, convert format and save, with a GUI that is intuitive and easy to learn how to use, means that this software is highly recommended.

Same with virtually everything Nir Sofer writes - FANTASTIC! I just replaced Nexus Font with this one. It's GRRRRRRRRREAT ! !

This does not let you view fonts in other directories or install and uninstall fonts like Nexus Font does though.

@MnX: nice find. :)

AdrianK_IT on 2012-07-20 19:25

Almost perfect! All it lacks is the ability to run a slideshow in random order.

AdrianK_IT on 2015-03-17 15:30

Been experimenting with this app again; was looking for a simple slideshow viewer that responded well to voice commands, for use with a Windows 8.1 tablet. Very good for that; still would like to see a random order option.

good program!

NickR on 2015-04-06 17:36

@moronoxyd I agree

I found that
it Write-Tests to Free space only
so no file data will be lost or overwritten

a useful utility for finding the best SD card for the job

Cereal_Nommer on 2018-06-28 12:59

@moronoxyd @NickR
The tool only writes to space the drive shows as free. On a fake SD card that's likely not going to be the same thing as the actual free space. If a fake card reports a larger free space and the tests continue to write to flash, some fakes wrap it back around so newer files overwrite the beginning of the space so the newest files will be most likely to still work.
Unless you're testing known good SD cards it's very important to backup anything on the card you're not willing to lose permanently.
