  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 13 Jul 2024
  • Suggested by lintalist

Lintalist is a context-sensitive text expander with abbreviations, shortcuts, plugins, and scripts. It allows you to store and (incrementally) search and edit texts in bundles and paste a selected text in your active program. Entered text can be interactive, such as automatically inserting the current time and date, requesting (basic) user input, or making a selection from a list, as well as running a script.

The program supports keyboard shortcuts or abbreviations to paste the text (or run a script) without opening the search window, and allows images and formatted text, including HTML, markdown, and RTF.

A 64-bit version is also available. Written in AutoHotkey

Doesn't work unless I'm missing something. Change any setting, restart and it crashes.

hamasaki on 2020-04-12 11:12

As a follow up, I contacted the developer and this has been fixed.

hamasaki on 2021-08-08 12:37

Finally got around to taking a closer look at this software and I'm totally blown away with just how good it is. You need to spend a bit of time with it, but wow, such a timesaver. I can consolidate 3 or 4 other programs I use into just this one. Excellent.

SmartSniff v2.30 Updated

Andrew Lee on 13 Jul 2024
  • 135KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Jul 2024
  • Suggested by milentechie

SmartSniff is a network analysis/diagnostic tool that allows you to capture TCP/IP packets that pass through your network adapter. You can view the captured data as sequence of conversations between clients and servers in ASCII mode (for text-based protocols, like HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and FTP) or as hex dump (for non text-based protocols, like DNS).

On Win2K or above, SmartSniff is able to capture TCP/IP packets using raw sockets. This method has some limitations and problems, but it does not require any additional installation. A better way to capture TCP/IP packets is to install the open-source WinPcap driver (see Dependencies), functional on Windows 98 and later.

Optionally, add IPToCountry.csv or GeoLiteCity.dat in the same directory as SmartSniff to show the Country of origin for each IP address.
What's new?
  • Added support for using the country/city IP-Location files from https://github.com/sapics/ip-location-db for viewing country/city information of local/remote IP addresses.
  • In order to use these IP-Location files, simply download the desired files and put them in the same folder of cports.exe with their original filename (For example: asn-country-ipv4.csv )

There is a more recent version of Wireshark (portable)

@Zadadka
No I'm not - a portable program is one that doesn't install files.

@SnowStorm:
It still isn't portable since it wants to install WinPCap

bzl333 on 2013-03-13 02:53

@kermode - it works on raw sockets in winXP SP3, so it is portable for some users at least.

FileOptimizer v16.70 Updated

Special on 12 Jul 2024
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Jul 2024
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A list of the 400+ supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line. Many images here on TPFC including our logo have been compressed using FileOptimizer.

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine

How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z.exe package and launch. When prompted, select a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

At startup, the program will optionally show ads to support program development. These can be disabled at any time.

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder
  • Delete unnecessary language files

I just tried to reduce the size of a video and it has left me exactly the same and with either option: fast and the best.
Any explanation?.
Best regards.

webfork on 2019-10-06 22:40

@kilouiski: FileOptimizer exists because so few programs take the time and energy to fully compress your files with available tools. It sounds like the program used to generate your video was an exception.

@webfork - The software name is FreeOffice. I think it's obvious that there is a Pro version judging by the name of the program. When using FreeOffice, some upsell will be shown within the interface of the program, so if the user is interested in their enhanced features, they can do so at their own perusal.

Antolion on 2022-02-05 03:39

This is possibly a greatest (portable) prog-suite. I' using only the portable version. There is a serious problem/bug I1 experienced. After want to save my presentatuons in presentations-maker its failed, and the prog said: it's not possible because it's an illegal (pirate) version of a progam.. The non-portable waersion works flawlessly!(I think, the root of the the problem, that the portable-version put the samples/sablons etc. in different way. And, misfortunately, the portabilizing-process is not work for hunspell dictionaries, but its a minor problem. Thanks!

There is also (with the same architecure) Ashampoo Free Office:
https://www.ashampoo.com/en-us/office-free
a related, a bit older (2012), but rather compact, full-fledged compatible office suite.
One might need to supply an e-mail (may be temp) to get a product key.
To make it portable one just needs to have a file called "portable.txt" in its folder.

Hi Zorro. PhotoDemon developer here. PD shouldn't have any new dependencies between v7 and v8. (In fact, its system dependencies haven't really changed since the Windows XP era!)

If the app was working for you in the past but it doesn't now, please get in touch so I can investigate. Contact info here: https://photodemon.org/about/contact/

No .NET libraries are required by PD or any of the 3rd-party libraries it uses, but like all Windows apps, it does require *some* system libraries to be present. This includes the VB runtimes built into Windows 8.1 and 10 (full list here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/visualstudio/visual-basic-6/visual-basic-6-support-policy#runtime-definition). If a determined user manually removes those libraries, PD is unlikely to run. I'm afraid I don't have a way to prevent this. :(

Thank you in advance for any follow-up information you can provide. I no longer have a Windows 8.1 system available for testing, but if I've somehow broken PD on it, I'd love to fix it as quickly as I can.

zorro on 2020-09-20 14:01

Hi PhotoDemon ;-) - just wanted to send you a screenshot of the message appearing when I try to start the program... but PhotoDemon updated itsself and now the problem is gone. Means version 8.2 is working like a charm (and like old version 7.0) on my machine. Thanks for so much backwards-compatibility!

Thank you so much for the follow-up, Zorro! My favorite bugs are the ones that fix themselves. :D

Thanks for your quietly updating Tixati's main entry, following the above agitation...;-)

@smaragdus
(Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).)

Quite so, strictly speaking...

BUT...

Currently, the "Uncompressed size" field is formally defined in the entry form as:
   "Total size of application files when fully unarchived/uncompressed".

We don't really want to open a whole 'nother can of worms about what exactly ought to be the appropriate scope of the "uncompressed size" field definition, with implication for every current entry in the Data Base, do we ?

Specular on 2016-02-13 03:09

The included CUERipper program is utterly superb and should be mentioned in the description I strongly think since it doesn't have enough attention and currently doesn't show up in results (I'll fix that in a sec).

It has an easy to use yet poweruser-friendly interface, produces EAC logs with AccurateRip information, offers Burst/Secure/Paranoid ripping modes (with Burst correctly set by default), allows for image or track rips, verify options and moe.

And one of the main features which solidified my switch: both it and the main CUETools offer a metadata search UI that displays the extended tag info such as Publisher, Barcode, etc. The only ripper I've tried which displays and tags this.

What is the template to add commands to the menu list? Whatever i try it doesn't work.

Anyone knows about other cmd replacement that allows you to save commands?

@Ennovy: Though worded slightly differently, they seem to mean the same thing? Basically just create an empty "config.cfg" in the root folder, a rather typical technique used by many other portable apps.

With 4.76, I did not find any entries in the registry. Nor did it remember the last backup folder.

Dave Bee on 2019-06-15 10:40

I was just wondering what is wrong with backing up the drivers using Windows itself? That's what I've been doing for a long time. If I ever need to reinstall a driver, I just point Windows to the folder where all the drivers are backed up, and Windows will find and install the specific driver(s). Why would you even need this program at all? Make a new folder on your C drive (I find that easiest), then just run an administrator command prompt, and run the following command: dism /online /export-driver /destination:"C:\New Folder" Windows will back up your drivers, and you can then copy/cut/rename the new folder to whatever/wherever you want. Works for me.

Is the description of "How to extract" still valid? I ask because a lot has changed with the structure of directories and files.

@dmocha: I just downloaded the ZIP file for v9.0.1, and it seems the file/dir structure is still pretty much the same, so the extraction instruction should still be valid. Could you provide details on the diffs that you are seeing?

@Andrew Lee: I have no objections. I'm just asking. I remember that quite a long time ago new folders and files arrived, and the procedure is still the same. That's why I'm wondering if it's up to date with these files.
I still follow this procedure and still use the portable version.
