I seem to be having a slight error while attempting to export a profile to Microsoft Excel. When I attempt to do it I receive the message that everything is good to go, but when I open the file, it is just a template file. I have roughly 450 associations and growing on my server. Is there anything that I can do to solve this? I will state that it does allow me to export to CSV and .ini correctly, however. Is there by chance an upper limit on the number of associations that it can export to Excel?

Hi guys, I am currently getting the following error when starting DropIt:
"The procedure entry point GetNamedPipeServerProcessId could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dl."

Any thoughts on what caused this error or how I might go about fixing it?

Cheers,

Geoff

What OS? Maybe it's very old, not up to date (it should be at least XPsp3)?
Tried a "sfc /scannow" command? Maybe there are some corrupted system files.

Hi,

I'd have a question about DropIt associations.
I have created an association which is supposed to take all files
*.aac;*.flac;*.m4a;*.mp3;*.ogg;*.wma;*.wav
and move them to
c:\Users\MyName\Music\%SongArtist%
Some mp3s are sorted fine, but great deal of them just finish in Unknown SongArtist folder.
Why?
I have checked and edited MP3 ID3 tags, but sorting was still done to Unknown SongArtist folder.
Which tags or properties are checked with %SongArtist%?
Thank you.

Hi all,
with DropIt it's possible to 'change file association' like with program Default Program Editor http://defaultprogramseditor.com/ ?
This feature is already suggested?
Thanks ad advance for a reply.

Hi!

1) I need automatically replace all *.jpg files from c:\1 to d:\2
A wrote in Option "Monitoring" : c:\1

?: How to AVOID monitoring of SUBFOLDERS of с:\1 ?
I need only files in C:\1 directory without subfolders

2) How to start sorting by pushing a button?
I need a button: I push it - it starts to work.

@rbon: "change file association" is a feature to edit system configurations, while DropIt works on files. I think it requires a dedicated software for it.

@MioR: to avoid monitoring subfolders you can add an association with double asterisks ** as filter and "Ignore" as action. Currently there is not a button to switch monitoring on/off, the only solution is to run DropIt when you need it or to manually drop files on it instead of use monitoring method. For more info I recommend you to read the included pdf Guide and the official tutorial: http://www.dropitproject.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=start

Is there a possibilit to add an action where you can drop "Print file".
Would like to see option where a user can drag files to Dropit and have them printed.
Make such that you can setup the printer you want to use.
Can be very useful for PDF, DOC, ... formats. All formats that can be printed.

Update 23/02
found this program which can be used with open with option.
Problem is that I don't get it to work via Dropit for printing PDF files. Printing is done but output is useless.
Who can help pls ? Really need possibility to print PDF's fast via Dropit.

Thanks, Me

The problem is that PDF printers require installed drivers to work. I'm not sure if it works, but you could try something like this:

Hey Lupo73,
I checked it but can't get it to work. Not sure I describe my issue well enough.
I would like to drop a PDF file (I often get pdfs from other colleagues in my mailbox) and would like to drop these files on Dropit to get them printed at once.
Via printfile program above you can say which printer to.
Would like to see a possibility to get this print done via Dropit somehow.
Could you help me out on how exactly to configur Dropit for this task.
Thanks in advance, Johan

PS: the printers we use are high volume and complete high power laserprinters in an industrial environment. So they are capable to print all kind of docs. Point is to get Dropit setup properly to send to selected PDF to a specific printer in one go.

Hello lupo73,

is it possible in dropit to check the folder for particular file names or file types, and based on the content, it will only process the folder if the content is equal to the user's quantity

example :

i have folders named "Alpha" and "Beta" inside that folder i have several file types.

the user set the quantity of 1

file type is zip

Monitor folder "C:\Example Folder"

Association could be
Name: Check Folder with 1 Zip file and move the folder
Rule: *.zip =1 (qty of zip file should be equals to 1)
Action: Move
Destination: D:\Destination

Process example
------------------------
C:\Example Folder
C:\Example Folder\Alpha
file-1.doc
file-2.zip
file-3.zip

C:\Example Folder\Beta
file-1.zip
file-2.doc
------------------------

Result
-----------------------
D:\Destination\Beta

only the C:\Example Folder\Beta is moved to the D:\Destination because it has only 1 zip file


Example 2

Association could be
Name: Check Folder with "exactly" 1 Zip file and move the folder
Rule: *.zip ==2 (qty of zip file should be exactly 2, no other file types)
Action: Move
Destination: D:\Destination

Process example
------------------------
C:\Example Folder
C:\Example Folder\Alpha
file-1.doc
file-2.zip
file-3.zip

C:\Example Folder\Beta
file-1.zip
file-2.doc

C:\Example Folder\Delta
file-1.zip
file-3.zip
------------------------

Result
-----------------------
D:\Destination\Delta

only the C:\Example Folder\Delta is moved to the D:\Destination because it exactly has 2 zip files


Thanks!
