I have no idea why the "GUI version without installer" has the .man extension, but it's only a simple archive and can be extracted with 7zip or UniversalExtractor. So "How to extract" field is still displaying correct information.

You are right! My Opera is at fault here. My beloved Opera failed my once more...again... Maybe it's finally time to put it to rest...

CAUTION: Writes corrupt files on my XP sp3 setup.

File compare works (Superbly - my favourite by far)

But if I write file1 or file2 after executing the actual'Compare'
or some other edit changes. My file is written truncated and
in Unicode BigEndian UTF-8, which spoils my day somewhat.

I checked carefully and re-downloaded etc for a few days now.
May not effect everyone. Hope this helps someone avoid a problem.

I cannot open the .hlp file. Any suggestions?

__philippe on 2017-10-09 21:25


TextDiff.hlp is a windows 3.x Help file. Under Win XP, Explorer will open it just fine.

Under Win7, however, Explorer will barf about an unsupported old file format,
but does suggest to download some sort of conversion utility.

Alternatively, TextDiff.hlp file contents could be converted (under winXP) to a PDF document.
PM me with your email if you want it.

This is a wonderful tool. I use it to remove the read-only attributes from files copied from a DVD-ROM. I love how it does entire directories in one sweep.

David Dollevoet on 2010-11-18 19:57

Multi File Tool 3.0 is effective, easy to use, and super fast.

RecRedDot on 2011-01-07 16:43

It's not to be used for single-file change, works only on one of the three date the file system can manage.

Sweet - my work just changed policy on user installation of i've been hunting around like crazy for portable versions of all my fave programs so i can still use them. This works perfectly, cheers.

ChemZ on 2011-01-11 00:17

The Softpedia/PortableApps download link doesn't actually contain Wink, just the wrapper/launcher (which you will still need).

As -.- said:

- You need to download Wink from
- Extract with 7zip or Universal Extractor
- Then copy the contents of $R0 into the App\Wink folder of the wrapper/launcher.

Bit of a hassle but it works. Good luck!

This soft seems to not be able to convert images in a descent output format.
FLASH/swf/Flv are osbsolete, and nothing really worked when I tried to export in these formats, neither other formats. Had to uninstall the thing. Sorry.
