FilExile

#1 Post by I am Baas » Wed Feb 22, 2012 3:57 pm

Simple program intended to delete and remove stubborn directories and files that cannot be removed by other means either because the path is too long, the name is invalid, or any of other errors that can be incurred upon file or directory deletion.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/filexile/

Dl installer @ http://sourceforge.net/projects/filexil ... e/download and uniextract.

Writes FilExile_log.txt in C:\ (if logging is enabled). A quick scan did not find anything else outside the application folder.

Tested: Doesn't work on Windows XP SP3

I was going to suggest this should be moved to the submissions forum, but perhaps it should be left here for further discussion.

No wonder it doesn't... FilExile requires .net to run. The developer mentions C++ as the programming language. I did not bother to test for dependencies at the time. I just tried to test on XP SP3 and got an error message.

Well... bummer.

Weird, why not use C# instead of C++. I wonder if he created this using C++/CLI? I presumed the same as you did, rarely do you see developers creating .NET applications in C++ these days.

FilExile at version 3.00 (released on 2017-02-07), changes:
*******************
FilExile v3.00
February 05th, 2017
*******************
· Converted the entire application to C# and moved it to GitHub
· Completely recoded the shell extension to be a proper .dll (this is in C++ however)
· Further improved the GUI for ease of use
· Added "Always On Top" functionality
· Added disabling of the progress monitor for increased performance
I have not tested the "portable" versions (FilExile Portable.exe and FilExile Portable x86.exe).
