So after much speculation here is the website for the new application entitled ProEject.

Website: http://softwarespot.wordpress.com/software/proeject

I am currently optimising the code, but if anyone wants to see what I have before the preview on Monday then just let me know.

Excellent :mrgreen:

If anyone has any suggestions for additional Registry Keys or Folders for cleaning, then please do. This is what I've done so far, as you can see I've added additional Folders to ProEject, whereas EjectUSB cleans only the Recent >>

Cleans The Following Areas Of The Computer:
Registry >>
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\MuiCache\ (Windows XP) OR HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache\ (Windows Vista+)

Folder(s) >>

Firewall >>

If should be made aware that I've been using EjectUSB since April 2008 (I was the first to comment in the forum) so of course I have great respect and admiration for Queue's unique program and AutoIt ability. Therefore if you feel EjectUSB is still a great product and don't want to change, then great why should you :D The sole purpose for me doing this is I enjoy coding and I wanted to fix the Firewall cleaning in Windows 7 & a small bug I found. Let me know what you think.

The icon isn't designed by me, I got it from http://icons.mysitemyway.com/category/y ... ign-icons/ where they produce royalty free icons, but I can't redistribute, though I don't know if this means I can't include it with the source code? Perhaps not.

I'd send them a note and say you're working on a free, open source project that's trying to solve a problem many people and ask them for permission to redistribute. When you're doing something that's almost charity, its hard to say no.

Thats what I thought too webfork :D

My aim is increase in speed, I've managed to optimise _FileListToArray() with a reduction of 0.50ms, which might not seem alot for a single folder, but if we're talking about 10 then thats a reduction in 5ms or 100 (well you get the idea!)

And as I pointed out before I'm using EjectUSB as a point of reference and improving the code Queue created. If you look in the Source Code there is a Function called _GetDriveNumber() which converts a drive letter to a number for AutoStart.exe & AutoEject.exe, this is 29 lines that I've reduced to just 1.

Code:
Func _GetDriveNumber($sDrive)
   Return Asc(StringUpper($sDrive)) - 65
EndFunc   ;==>_GetDriveNumber

If anyone has suggestions on Registry Keys or Folders to clean then let me know.

Will you please consider adding an option to clear the folder "Local Settings\Temp"?

Yeh I can add %TEMP%! But it will be optional of course.

Example of INI File.
Quote:
[General]
Clean=1
Close=1
Eject=1
Flush=1
RemoveSubst=1
Silent=0
Temp=1
Wait=5

[Excluded]
List=opera.exe;chrome.exe

Does it need to be configured editing the INI or has a GUI?

It will have a GUI. My approach is K.I.S.S, so I was wondering are people happy with those settings?

AFAIAC the settings are fine but surely after you will be releasing ProEject there will be more concrete comments/suggestions.

I like a lot the webpage (original, sharp and very nice pics).

ProEject will be the final name?

Thanks for all the great work you are doing :mrgreen:

If the plan is (initially) to allow manual INI editing for settings, you could consider to add comment lines to describe each parameter.. for example:
Code:
[General]
; To clean the registry:
Clean=1
; To close ProEject after process:
Close=1
; To eject the flash drive:
Eject=1
; ...
Flush=1
; ...
RemoveSubst=1
; ...
Silent=0
; ...
Temp=1
; ...
Wait=5

[Excluded]
List=opera.exe;chrome.exe


Does it will support also the ejection of defined drives (not the drive where ProEject is)?
