not working under win98

Nice tool, i've started using it today and it's great and simple. GTH Lotus Notes! I only hope this one worked on Linux natively but i'm almost sure Wine will do good.

Good product, but the ini-file contains direct reference to last used disk.

GeoTrail 2006-12-04 15:37

Jandk, that doesn't matter does it? :)

Great piece of software. I use it every day since about 2 months and I cannot live without it.

Ivan 2006-12-10 20:19

Use ToDoList for abiut 6 months. Very convinient program. I use it in GTD-way (Getting Things Done).

Gabe 2007-06-16 13:58

This version is very buggy. Some of the default keyboard shortcuts do not work; (ctrl-shift-space) for example.
Download the previous version or wait until the next one.

Aside from this version being a problem. This is one of the best and most used programs on my computer. If you like to organize your thoughts and projects, use this. I have been looking for some encarnation of ToDoList for years and found it about 6 months ago. Hallelujah!

Oh, and if any developers see this. I have only one feature request. It would be so useful if we could drag a Task item onto the Tab of a different Tasklist and have it appear in the destination Tasklist. It would streamline the organization of related Tasklists. Currently it seems only importing a whole Tasklist into another is possible.

Dead links at the download page after having "signed up". It's a pain.

USB_Kx 2007-10-03 23:46

I love this app. The development is quick, releases are regular, which means the author is on his toes. Its a big plus when considering a software.

As for downloading, dont use a download manager.

zebob 2007-10-14 19:30

Use BugMeNot to download the file.

Aaron 2007-10-16 01:24

Nice tool. Transforming the active tasklist is very usefull for presentation in several formats. Good use of stylesheet. CSV-format suitable for import in MS Projects as initial setup or exchanging tasklists.

Gabe 2007-11-12 21:43

My post from above was for a version 5.2.*
The bugs I mentioned at that time have been worked out. I wanted to edit out the, no longer pertinent, complaint from my previous post but I don't see a way to do that here.
So, my current disclaimer is, ignore my first post.

This program is simply fantastic!

todolist new location

The best to-do list manager!

Robert 2008-12-17 18:40

Version 5.4 automatically assumes settings saved to .ini file. Nice interface. Needs work. Tree view does not allow for manually setting the view length of any field. Time on project feature seems real time only. Does not seem to allow for manual entry of time on a project item. While this software has potential, a better choice for immediate use would be TaskCoachPortable from portable apps.

Wonderful app; it beat out both TaskCoach and DevProject Manager to earn the only Project Manager spot on my computer. I'd recommend it to anyone.

cendey 2010-06-16 03:34

Very useful

Bill 2011-02-22 20:37

Been trying to test ToDoList and TaskCoach side by side. Both have some nice features that the other one doesn't but ToDoList nudges TaskCoach out based on overall feature set. However, a couple of wishlist items for ToDoList. 1. Allow the user to move the columns and widen the columns. 2. Allow for drag and drop of more than one file to be added to a task/project. 3. Add templates for tasks and sub-tasks.

Awesome product! Absolutely. Tried so many of its kind but once I came to know of ToDoList and started using it, that was it. Easy, versatile and a plethora of features. Loved it. Loving it. Will always love it. Hats off to its author, ever.


MIKLO 2017-01-05 14:17

@ smaragdus: Thanks I really hate to have to sign in or open an account just to download a freeware app. I find this to be a very good and useful program which does everything I want it to do... what a concept :) thanks for the hard work the maker of this software endured, it is greatly appreciated.



IanFromBarrie 2017-01-27 22:39

I doubt this version runs on XP. Windows 7 has no problem, but XP throws "This application failed to start etc.".


IanFromBarrie 2017-01-27 22:48

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.


IanFromBarrie 2017-01-27 22:54

The download contains the "todolist.exe.xp.manifest" file, and renaming that to "todolist.exe.manifest" works


TP109 2017-01-28 02:43


Thanks for that info. I was wondering why it wasn't working with XP. Renaming todolist.exe.xp.manifest to todolist.exe.manifest worked.
