Read "stuck print jobs" @ http://jesusnjim.com/using-computers/stuck-print-jobs.html

Batch file that does the same is available @ http://jesusnjim.com/using-computers/flushprinters.bat

Source, binaries and installer @ http://jesusnjim.com/code/printflush.html

Not bad!
The BAT file basically stops the spooling process, then deletes the contents (files) located in the system32\spool\printers directory
then starts the spool process again.

Used this program to successfully extract keys from an older backup of the Registry hive files. Followed an online guide which recommended it since it automatically tweaks the exported key file with the correct path for importing into the registry.

  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 Feb 2009

GSplit is a versatile file-splitter that can split a large file into multiple parts based on user-specified parameters. It is also able to generate self-uniting executables (with file corruption auto-detection) that do not require any program on the destination machine.

This is useful for transferring files when there is a bandwidth or storage cap.

Wow did this work well! It's a no-brainer to use and did exactly what it said it would do. I tried to cram a huge 143MB file through the system yesterday and it kept choking and dying - after an hour of trying. I used GSplit and it went through in under five minutes for all of the smaller files. I tested re-assembly on my end and it was a no-brainer too.

There appears to be a problem with their download page. This link work for now:

@rogerthedodger: you can download the PortableApps.com package. Extract or install it, the contents of the APP folder is all you need, delete the rest. After the first launching of IcoFX.exe the configuration files will be created

Rodger on 2013-01-06 10:04

small fonts (on the app itself) = @ Kermode
Found a solution !
Dowmoad 12noon Dispay Changer (free -> google): very nice prgram, helps me a lot with old programs on my new large screen !
Install. Go to folder where installed, make a shortcut from the cd.exe folder.
Rightclick on shortcut, open properties
Richtclick IcoFX.exe, open properties, highlight target command line, copy (Ctrl + c)
Go to THE END of the same line (target) in the IconFX properties, paste (Ctrl + v); leave a space between both (there are quotation marks at the beinning and at the end of both)
Go to the space and type (without quotation marks, but leaving again a space before, in between and at the end) "-width=1152 -height=864" (or any other screen size COMPATIBLE with your screen, e.g. 1600x 900 1027x768, etc; see help of dc to find out which screen sizes are compatible).
Close properties of both.
Change the name and icon of dc.exe to IcoFX.
That's it !
(When you close IcoFX, the screen will automatically return to its initial size, so the change onlw affcts this program !)

The busy XP screenshot doesn't do the app justice. Worthwhile app for icon creation and extraction. Main limitation of this version is the lack of 512px+ size support, which OSX and now Windows 10 support.

.

"ofw08charity.exe" is free but needs registration at the website for the serial. follow instructions for the extract/install up to step #3. there is no need to edit .ini files because the string "OEMRegisterSkip" is not there.

keep the usb version.

The 2008 version is much lighter and faster than OOo. Wow! Looks great so far.

Midas on 2012-03-05 14:13

Testing version 2008, not sure if it is stealth, but seems rather snappy, looks like a keeper...

For those having trouble with installation instructions:

Install it to you desktop machine,
choose default interface language (which you may change later via options),
enter registration details (received freely at email address given while registering for download; also, keep those details, as they are mandatory for SoftMaker Office 2008 installation),
choose location for install (not really important, as you'll be making that install portable),
then choose the custom button on the next dialog for selecting which components of the suite to install (I recommend getting the interface language of your choice, plus all the proofing tools for the languages you understand and minus the SMASH launcher),
then deselect the 'Install application for all users on this computer' option on the next dialog and
proceed to Install.

After that, find the SoftMaker Office entry in the start menu, and under 'tools' you'll find the option to transfer the installation to your portable device, after which you can uninstall from your desktop machine if you wish to.

Really useful soft, as it's multiplatform (Windows & Linux) and can be run portable.
