I've just had an advertising bar appear occupying about 20% of the STDU window at the bottom of the window. I was using Installed STDU viewer version 1.6.284 unregistered. This suggests that the license is now Adware for private use, not freeware. Unfortunately I can't tell if this also affects educational use or the portable version; my guess is that it does.

@Craunch
Confirmed. Thanks.

Changed license to Freeware (ad supported).

Pretty decent PDF viewer, just the kind of lightweight app I was looking for. Unfortunately there is no 2-page face-to-face only layout view, as the 'face' layout it has scrolls down including any pages below. No idea why such an extra layout isn't included, as it's a better way to view books especially.

@ mukhi - Could your AV or FW program be blocking the download or the download site? Have you been able to download other files with no issue?

DzejPy on 2014-03-10 22:00

Sometimes show advertisement: http://www.imghosting.cz/images/95SoftPerfectNetScan.jpg

webfork on 2014-03-17 01:35

DzejPy: verified. However, if you just click "Ok got it" in that image, it goes away and doesn't come back. Think we can let the adware notice slide for the moment.

MobaXtermHere script works great on XP. Nice addition.

I use this software daily in all my network admin duties. It's a wonderful piece of software and I will gladly recommend this to all my friends.

MobaXterm alternative: For a much more compact suite of Native Win32 port of stand-alone GNU utilities, *provided an X-Server is not required*, consider also
http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/

package download (3.36Mb):
http://sourceforge.net/projects/unxutils/

The classic, finely honed, single-purpose Unix tools "cat | grep | head | tail ..." are all in there,
(all 118 of them), including the perennial soul-searching 'whoami' operator...;-)

Tested and found to be running fine under winXP. Recommended.

Woked fine on my USB storage drive-Hallers version at portable apps better,cleans up itself,slick program.

SYSTEM on 2012-09-26 14:31

@rodger123: This "worse" version only leaves files in Internet Explorer's cache. IMHO, the overhead caused by PortableApps.com Launcher is not worth it.
