@billon mmm, it's odd. Just had a pop-up informing of a new version to download which is apparently v12.18 yet no official changelog has been released.

However did find an old My Opera stalwart who posted some of the changes over on the Vivaldi forums. Will continue this discussion on the PF thread...

RegDllView v1.60

Checker on 9 Dec 2015
  • 72KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Dec 2015
  • Suggested by JohnW

RegDllView displays the list of all registered dll/ocx/exe files (COM registration). For each registered file, you can view the last date/time that it was registered, and the list of all registration entries (CLSID/ProgID).

The program also allows you to unregister dll/ocx files that you don't need on your system anymore. If you have dll/ocx files that don't exist on your system anymore but their registration entries still exist in the Registry, you can manually remove these entries by using 'Delete All Entries For Selected Files' option.

The programmer that made this program makes really reliable programs. I have about 10 different programs from NirSoft and they are each very useful and stable.

I'm eager to try this program to see if it can be used to unregister some mysterious DirectX plugins that show up in my music programs and possibly crash Reaper.

Another excellent tool by NirSoft. I just used this utility to search for and destroy lots of junk left in the registry by McAfee ever since I uninstalled their software a couple of years back. It had been preinstalled on my netbook, and I hadn't bothered to clean up after it. Doing that manually would have been very time consuming.

Yep NirSoft does it again,another example of useful and stable software thanks NirSoft.

WinLister v1.22

billon on 20 Nov 2016

  • Released on 8 Oct 2015
  • Suggested by dasfx

WinLister displays the list of opened windows on your system, provides data, and some optional controls. These include hide, show, close or set always-on-top mode, or save the windows list to text or HTML file. Window list information includes title, the handle of window, location, size, class name, process number, the name of the program that created the window, and more.

Great for managing a large number of windows or for UI/software developers.

I recently had a lot of trouble getting other tools to output to images and this saved me. Although I came close with using LibreOffice to export to HTML, Office Extractor caught an additional image that was embedded in the Word file header.
