Thanks Guido76. It's still labelled as 8.0.5 but it's a new version and working here too

Emka on 2017-03-04 13:44

It doesn't display some German special characters correctly (e.g. ß), and more importantly, it shows a "buy the pro version" nagscreen upon exit and opens the product homepage in the system's standard browser.

Guido76 on 2017-03-04 14:30

Emka, you're right. Some problems with the French language too. And a very annoying nag-screen, and automatic launch of the browser. Too bad!
I will try to see this with the author, but I suppose that is part of his strategy to force the sale of the Pro version, so there is only little chance to make him change his mind!

Advanced Renamer is stealth but the exiftool.exe within is not, it leaves behind a 19MB folder: AppData\Local\Temp\par-username\cache-exiftool-10.04.

Even if terminated properly, the folder stays.

@ joby_toss thanks for a great link that makes clear many useful things about portable installs :) Advanced Renamer is still my fav app for name changing one or many files,so user friendly.

What about WhatsApp!!!

webfork on 2016-09-05 15:13

@Realist: I haven't tested it because, unlike Isotoxin, WhatsApp is only out for Win8 and higher, closed source, and and is owned by Facebook. Their Wikipedia page lists some other concerns.

freakazoid on 2016-09-10 19:34

@Realist - Just go to web.whatsapp.com. Their "app" is just a wrapper for that.
