@thepiney: Same here. I've used magnet links no problem. The only time I've had errors is when the program loses access to the downloaded torrent files while it's still trying to share them (if you deleted or moved the downloaded files without deleting the torrent file). I moved from uTorrent because they started adding advertising, but there are settings tweaks to remove it.

JudyGarland on 2019-12-05 06:31

Qbittorrent does not support Windows XP and Vista anymore from v.4.2.0, though 'portableapps' seems not aware of that.
Please update 'System Requirements' section.

Regards

Hi, from the changelog of qbittorrent 4.2.1: (not the portableapps.com version)

FEATURE: Enable portable mode if "profile" directory exists

Anyone knows how does it work?

RapidCRC Unicode v0.3.34 Updated

billon on 24 Dec 2020
  • 868KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Dec 2020
  • Suggested by Userfriendly

RapidCRC Unicode is a hashing program capable of checking and verifying the integrity of files, folders, or whole drives. The program includes process priority, ability to pause/resume analysis, job queuing, easily copy hashes to the clipboard and multi-threaded checks. If using checksum files (e.g. .sfv or .md5) for future verification, options include the ability to generate for every analyzed file, directory, or a single checksum with all hash data.

Includes direct support for CRC hashing in the filename (common for anime releases) for example: "MyFile [45DEF3A0].avi") Other algorithms range from fast to secure, including SFV(CRC32), MD5, ED2K, SHA-1/256/512 and Blake2sp.

Based on the original RapidCRC but updated with extended Unicode support.

This is currently my go-to program. I tend to add it to the "send to" menu on machines I'm currently using and it works beautifully to check one or more files. Also, the ability to insert the hash directly into the file name makes so much sense. Just drag-and-drop it into the window and instantly know if there's a problem. Great solution to the multi-step check.

shoover on 2016-02-21 09:17

I think there is something wrong with the "CRC into Filename" function. This occurs with files that lack a file extension.

Happy Holidays To You All :)
Just wondering...Do any of you fine folks have the Palemoon Portable Browser v28 installed on a Vista Home Premium 32-bit OS?
Well, if you do, would you please tell me how? I've DL'ed a couple of v28's and installed them and they wouldn't launch.
To my knowledge of what I've been reading, Palemoon v28+ is for Windows 7+.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pale_Moon_%28web_browser%29

Please tell me your tips & tricks so I can go back to using Palemoon. Thanks so much.

Take care.

@Happy.Camper2 - You can probably use New Moon by Roy Tam. Check the MSFN forums for a link.

qj3328 on 2019-10-31 01:02

Pale Moon has become my default and favorite browser. It is laid out for the convenience of users rather than being handicapped to keep up with the latest in look, touch and feel that kills productivity. Pale Moon is for those that want to get work done, with as little time as possible lost to the eternal quest to locate moved, missing or deleted features that are too common in other browsers at every update. As for all browsers, sometimes pages are not rendered correctly and if so, I just jump briefly to a different browser - but I always end up returning to Pale Moon. In recent years the collection of Pale Moon-specific add-ons has increased dramatically, making it a fine substitute for Firefox.

This has been flagged as malware by AVG and other programs.

AdrianK_IT on 2012-05-05 13:30

This is one of the NirSoft utilities, and trustworthy. It is flagged as malware as it clearly can be used for malicious reasons ie extract passwords for nefarious purposes. However, it can also be used for good reasons ie extract passwords for recovery purposes etc!
I have learnt to temporarily disable 'real time protection' in AV software when downloading/moving/using these utilities.
I also use them as a simple test of AV software effectiveness; if it doesn't pick up these utilities as potentially malicious, then the AV software is clearly useless!

•  ICMP protocol capture capability

In v2.22 there's a 'Configuration Storage' setting under Prefs>Folders. By default it's unchecked. Does it need to be enabled for portable use?

j7n on 2017-04-06 22:59

The new "flat" design with similar monochrome icons is a step back in usability. Normal appearance, apart from grouping of toolbar buttons, can be restored under Configuration -> Layout.

The program is a good tool for trimming old MP3 encodes without incurring further quality loss. Glitches are avoided if the MP3 is upconverted to 320 kbit beforehand with MP3Packer.

I wish it also supported common simple video soundtrack formats.

Its similar to AviTricks Classic for Avi editing, but for audio files. Using a 3rd "tiny" app, Avi2wav, these together are 2mb worth of just stupid levels of "professionalism"

ImBatch is a powerful image processing tool with a long list of available tools for modifying one or more files. Available options include resize, rotate, modify colors, metdata, blur, shadow, crop and many more.

The program can also optimize images, create or add to an existing PDF, create animations (GIF), and upload the results to a remote server. The program can also passively watch a given folder for images to process and longer operations can put the computer in standby to save power once they conclude.

Smart functions include autocrop, auto-enhance, auto-stitch (for panorama-type images). The program supports a wide range of formats, command-line operations and batch task settings for easy load/unload of operations.

Easy to use and works good - just drag and drop over the window or dialog box. Seems more reliable and lite weight compared to similar apps.

This one is great. Unlike the other magnifier in the database ("OneLoupe"), it can also magnify constantly changing values on the display (OneLoupe sticks to the first value when moved over a changing field). I use Magnifixer to magnify the constantly changing display of a stopwatch ("1Time", also in the database), so I can check the watch when I'm doing something several metres away from the screen.

I agree with TP109 that this program just works. Currently I have close to a thousand snippets that average 25 lines and the program still runs smoothly.

hamasaki on 2020-04-11 21:41

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

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

It's not mentioned but it requires admin rights to install a driver. Does it remove the driver on system reboot? I don't know, I couldn't find out very much information besides "there's no installation required". The developer proclaims "It's so simple to use, you don't need documentation." LOL. So much for that.

Last but not least GPU-Z and CPU-Z just share similar names, they are developed independently afaik.

It's not stealth. Where the files or regs stored?

The dev responds to any e-mail. If any one has any suggestions contact the dev.

I made a request for showing the color code in two formats (at the same time) - sometimes I need the code in both Photoshop and RGB formats.
