I'd like to note that for Windows Vista+, if you extract the signed version of S+ to a folder under Program Files and manually install the StrokesPlus.cer certificate into Trusted Root Certification Authorities, S+ can be run without administrative privileges and still interact with programs which are running with administrative privileges as well as interact with Windows 8 screens (Start screen, task switcher, etc.).

Yes, I also understand that at that point (installing a certificate), you're no longer really using S+ in a truly portable fashion; but wanted to mention it anyway =)

Except Clipjump 64 bit version went AWOL, contrary to RClipStep -- and, BTW, RClipStep appearance preceded Clipjump, at least here at TPFC...

@Midas Here is a test release of Clipjump x64 exe. http://sourceforge.net/projects/clipjump/files/beta_versions/Clipjump_11.2.3_x64_test.zip/download
It was not complicated adding 64-bit exe but I want to know that it works.

BGM on 2014-08-22 14:50

Hey, if you all use the installer, be careful! It has some very subtle "other" stuff bundled in there. Make sure you read every panel. "Other" stuff includes "Search Protect" and "Trovi Search" which changes your search pages and home pages. PUSH SKIP. There is another one that tries to install (but I can't get it to do it after cancelling the installation once) and you have to push "disagree" in order not to install it.

Why all the fuss over RAR? The biggest problem is getting RAR to ZIP so it's compatible to more people in the world, not less. 1980 called, they want their compressor back.

Midas on 2014-05-25 19:18

The changelog posted is for ArcConvert v0.66, plus there now seems to be a 64 bits version linked at the bottom of the Sourceforge page ("Update for 64bit OS").

Note also that although WinRAR gives you a 30 day trial, as the meme goes, it will never end...

webfork on 2014-05-30 23:25

DavidRoper: even among very technical people, I can't seem to get anyone to use anything but ZIP. The dream of getting people to use one of a number of radically better compression formats has been going on for over a decade now and at this stage just seems like a lost cause.

Interesting, effective, but slow.

An option to limit folder recursion might help (you can say %PrettyRunDrive%\portableapps -- for instance -- but the scan subfolders option is going to make PrettyRun go to a lot of unhelpful places, whereas if you could restrict it to just one subfolder down, it might be faster.

The MP3 tag search is also quite slow.

It's not the most intuitive to set up, either.

FindAndRunRobot (from www.donationcoder.com) has a similar philosophy to this but is much, much faster (despite also taking a similarly non-indexed approach) and has a lot more functionality, too.
