MicroSIP requires MS Visual C++ runtime libraries installed in your computer, otherwise doesn't work, only 2008 version is valid, other Visual C++ packages from Microsoft (i.e: 2005 or 2010 versions) don't work.

There's no need to install/uninstall. It can be uniextracted.
@gusi4u: If I am not mistaken, LibreOffice needs Visual C++ version 2008 only, too.

I can't get this software to work at all. Have reverted to PhonerLite, which has a clumsy interface but works OK. I like the neat gui for MicroSIP, but can't make outgoing calls at all, getting a 'connection timeout' message; and after answering an incoming call, can neither hear or be heard by caller.
Bizarre; use the same settings as for PhonerLite, and when MicroSIP is running, it registers with my VOIP provider (Sipgate) OK, but ... zilch!

WinPrefetchView v1.20 Updated

Checker on 17 Apr 2014

WinPrefetchView is a small utility that reads the Prefetch files stored in your system and display the information stored in them. A Prefetch file contains information about the files loaded every time you launch an application. It is created by Windows and is used for optimizing the loading time of the application in the next time that you run it. By looking in these files, you can learn which files every application is using, and which files are loaded on Windows boot.

Like everything else that Nir Sofer writes, it's great. No fancy interface, no install/uninstall, no cluttering of the registry, etc., etc. It simply does what it says it will do. Period.

Why not just C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch
