I've had a bit better luck with QuickTextPaste on Win10x64 by using commands other than those that use the "Win" key in combinations. It only sometimes triggers properly. Much better to use CTRL+ALT, CTRL+SHIFT, etc.

It`s not stealth. Creates 'AppData\Roaming\QuickTextPaste\QuickTextPaste.ini' file.

Oops, sorry. Just saw the message about creating the ini file. Too early for me. :(

The last version I found that supports XP/Vista is:

Also, here is the link for the compatibility for v5.0.0.3706:

Hi PortableFreewarers,
Hope everyone had a nice holiday:)

So, at the authors website, Vista is not listed in requirements=>
https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/complete-internet-repair

I downloaded v5.0.0.3758 just for curiosity and the change.txt has Vista listed as compatible.
Sure enough, this version DOES work on Windows Vista.

Guess I'll send a message to the Rizonesoft Team about the incorrect info on their site.

Not keeping things up-to-date surely does waste people's
time and also prevents folks from downloading the product if their OS isn't listed as a requirement.

Long live organized people :)
Take care all!

under Option - Quick paste. There you can change to another theme which comes with the program.
However to create your own looks/theme, you can go to the folder Ditto\Themes\ You'll find some xml files. Each of them is 1 theme. In there you can change the value and select which colars. You'll need to play a bit around till it looks they way you want it to be. Give it a new xml name and then in the Ditto program select this one as Theme as described above.

smaragdus on 2017-02-05 17:32

@RainrooM
Thank you again for the detailed information you provided! Somehow I failed to notice "Theme" menu in "Quick Paste".
Do you know whether the old themes packed with Ditto version 3.21.50.0 are compatible with Ditto version 3.21.134.0?

Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

penthe on 2016-12-30 15:28

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

starshakur on 2018-05-05 15:17

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

Time to start looking for an alternative, till then i'll use Windows Explorer.

I have used this PIM for many years however since Yahoo inflicted their new security measures I have been unable to download messages from my Yahoo account, I have followed all the instructions provided by Yahoo to add Essential PIM to the list of message services but to no avail.

Even Anton at Astonsoft could not help as his recommendations were exactly the same as those from Yahoo.

DzejPy on 2020-10-26 09:34

EssentialPIM free since version 9 can not add e-mail account Google (Gmail) or Microsoft (Outlook) - fails 2-step verification (OAuth).
Version 8 can do it...
Tested repeated on different computers and operating systems.

FireRabbit on 2021-12-14 00:27

PSA: I've tested both Outlook and Yahoo in version 10 and they both work fine for me.

It doesn't have functionality far in advance of other editors, but the interface is great. There are big, clear icons, themes, easy tabbed interface, and a really smooth options menu. If you think text editors are supposed to be functional rather than friendly, this might not be your cup of tea. Otherwise...

PapaiMark on 2020-02-25 15:11

Nice. The best text compare Ive ever seen. And mainly because of the trim-left/right.

eitang on 2021-12-10 15:46

Hi all,

Yes, Great editor !!! BUT:

Although it says compatible with Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 version v18.2.1 is NOT compatible with (at least) Win XP SR3 (which I still use).

I wrote to support@texteditor.pro but no reply as yet.

Anybody has a cure ? a Work Arounfd ? (it may be some useless DLL, for example...)

TIA,

Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

refack on 2017-04-22 14:53

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Midas on 2017-07-04 10:04

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.
