RegFromApp monitors the Registry changes made by the application that you selected, and creates a standard RegEdit registration file (.REG) that contains all the Registry changes made by the application. You can use the generated .REG file to import these changes with RegEdit when needed.

@Magibon

I find that RegFromApp will only capture reg writes if the app your monitoring is actually doing the writing.

Let's say your monitoring an app/installer that creates a 'Working directory' e.g. %temp%/MonitoredApp and dumps some files that now write to the registry, these writes do not get captured because the monitored app is not doing the writing.

How I find RegFromApp useful:

1. In concert with Regshot: RegFromApp will only capture writes from the program not the system.

2. Capture and Export: I use Chromium web browser and pass args on the command line to keep all files in the app directory e.g. --user-data-dir=.\
The only problem is that when I "Make Chromium my Default Browser" it doesn't transfer the command line to the registry.

By starting Chromium from/within RegFromApp as an admin I can capture these reg entries and export for editing (search and replace) with a text editor and add the command line and merge back into the registry.

This program doesn't work anymore. When launching any app through it, both the 32 and 64-bit versions just display "Failed to start with the new selected process. Error code: 299
Only part of a ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory request was completed."

Gwennel Doc v0.15

billon on 29 May 2018
  • 359KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 23 Dec 2013
  • Suggested by Cornflower

Gwennel is a lightweight word processor that takes an innovative approach to formatting options by separating them into a tree-like structure. This is useful for handling long documents with clear, organized formatting tools or for users who wish to focus on the text first and formatting second. Any style changes (such as headings, lists, or colors) are propagated throughout the entire document and, although only able to open and save OpenDocument (.odt) files, this makes the program a capable WYSIWYG editor. Additionally, users can open existing files and make rapid changes to the entire document.

Category:
Runs on:WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch gwennel.exe.
What's new?
  • New Feature: basic find command.
  • Bug fix: use the text color of paragraph for bullets.
  • The executable is no longer packed with UPX because of all those crappy antivirus.

It is not at all intuitive, but once you play with it a bit, It comes together.
I probably won't use it on my own computers where Open Office Portable is much handier, but as I like to keep my usb key light, I keep it there. Hint: go over your Open Office documents and see what styles you like to use, and update the openoffice-style.gwen template. I found this makes it more user friendly, as I am dealing with my own tastes.

I've tested it. I does support Unicode.

I don't know whether it is solid, but it is not portable, I extracted the x64 bit installer ('solid_renamer-120-x64.exe', version 1.2.0.5) and it stored its settings in C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Bitdreamers\Solid Renamer. I cut the config folder and put it in program's folder but the next time I ran it, this renamer re-created its config folder in AppData. The previous version (1.1.1) may not be that solid but at least is portable.

I have used SyncExp for years now and find it impossible to do without.
I do have a problem though. I would like either to turn off the automatic log file updating or somehow redirect the log file to another folder instead of the syncexp.exe folder.
Can anyone help?

Download link not working and appears to be dead for some time.

Last known link that worked for me today is on the Wayback Machine at Archive.org.

I added the commands famulus and "famulus ini" to manually add/edit commands and settings (and use the mouse less). This is a great find. Thanks, dmg.
