@ vmars316: Alternate (Data) Streams are a data structure for holding additional structured data within a file in addition to the main data.
The Windows NTFS file system allows so-called Alternate Data Streams (ADS). With this function, data can be stored invisibly tied by the user to a file.

Dropbox had a bug a while back (https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Syncing-and-uploads/com-dropbox-attributes/m-p/63351) and polluted every file with an alternate data stream. Any copy action thereafter from our NTFS drive to a thumb drive (usually FAT32) was interrupted by a warning, "Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties?" Very annoying! AlternateStreamView quickly and easily fixes the problem, as discovered here (http://superuser.com/questions/814312/is-it-possible-to-remove-the-are-you-sure-you-want-to-copy-this-file-without-it)

I thought streams were small bodies of water that flow through the forest, sorry couldn't resist :) This really software really is helpful in finding and seeing data that was cleverly concealed until using this. Thanks for some helpful software another hit from Nirsoft, keep em coming please.

I use it since W98. Very easy copy/paste/crop/resize/scan/print/sharpness and many other things.
Dont have a pen/filler. Not a full img editor but very easy and has many options.
Fully work is done with xnview, mspaint(for pen) and PaintDotNet for layers.(except for the layers that xnview does not have, everything is easier with xnview)

XnView is not Windows XP compatible anymore. In order to make it work with XP, replace libwebp.dll (plugin folder) with with webp.dll (xnview.com/download/plugins/webp.zip).

This entry needed a desperate clean-up and update. I've replaced the pak128 download link with the actual game and added a note about the graphics paks. The rest of the entry has been updated appropriately.

aazard on 2020-11-12 00:46

The CURRENT (2020-11-12) "offline" aka portable version instrustions:

Lots of forum searching to find this "stand-alone/offline portable install method note".

The "complete" stand-alone offline version is found here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/simutrans/files/Simutrans%20complete/102-2-2/

Optional to reduce size:

Downloading the smallest "graphics pak" which is: "Pak32 Comic" found here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/simutrans/files/pak32.comic/pak32.comic%20for%20102-0/

THEN renamE the folder from "pak32" to "pak" and delete/replace the original.

Remove all languages/fonts but the main one you speak/read (example: English for me with font "Prop-Latin1.bdf")

This will result in SMALLEST SIZE, current graphics game: unzipped, file "fixed" and UPX'ed (lzma) compressed size: 4.19mb

aazard on 2020-11-12 00:49

@ 4.19mb in on drive size; this is the most current (still being updated) simcity/open TTD like game that is will run on ANY PC current enough to have a USB port.

AHA ! CountryTraceroute v1.30 released 30MAY2019

CT finally provides pertinent ASN information, (useful to identify Network Carrier per IP hop),
as presaged by the recent introduction of ASN data in IPinfoOffline v1.50.

Happy conclusion to a looong quest for a coveted feature (began JUNE 2013)...;-)
https://tinyurl.com/y2re454h

Caveat:
Loading the optional Maxmind Geolite2 ASN*.CSV file alone takes about 10 sec(under XP)
or 5 sec(under Win7). Loading all the Geolite2 *.CSV files takes about 28 sec (XP)

Loading time might be considerably reduced in future versions by querying the equivalent Maxmind Geolite2 compiled binaries instead of *.CSV

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!

@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.

I used Ethervane ActiveHotkeys (http://www.tranglos.com/activehotkeys/)
but this application does not work correctly on 64-bit versions of Windows.

I only use this program once every 2 years but I'm SO glad I have it. I don't know of a similar program for other operating systems.

Sorry if I missed the point .... but what is the point of this application?
In Firefox, use CTRL-J to display this information!

joby_toss on 2014-11-26 18:07

It's faster (and easier on resources) than starting FF and hitting Ctrl+J (for example when you're working with a different browser).

juvera: good question. I tried to come up with some possible uses.

The problem seems to be related to plugins. It's working now. See post at un4seen forums here:

I used to use WinAmp (over the years became bloated and tool forever to load), then tried Cool Player (good, but not enough features for me). XM Player is the perfect balance - super fast, reliable (so far), flexible, and customizable. J.U.S.T. Perfect!
