"Copy or move the contents of $INSTDIR to a folder of your choice":
I just extracted using uniextract (2. try: 7zip, same result). There is no $INSTDIR, only $PLUGINSDIR, SOUNDS and files imgburn.exe, imgburnpreview.exe, readme.txt.
I suppose this altogether is equivalent to $INSTDIR ? At least it seems to work and afterwards the ini is 18KiB and it created dir "Log Files".

I confirm that *fang-face* is right- the extraction of the latest version of ImgBurn (2.5.8.0) with Universal Extractor version 1.6.1 or with 7-Zip version 9.20 doesn't create any '$INSTDIR' directory.

Re verification: I'm not sure, but I think the program only verifies that the burned content is readable. I don't see the source drive active during this process.

I always verify with WinMerge after burning:

nice, hope there will be feature to not display the feed that already shown

Too bad, twitter support is removed for now due to changes on the twitter site. I did like that function very much and I hope the author can restore that.

A mod needs to add some extra tags to the entry, as searching the collection for 'Nexus Image' with a space returned zero results.

@Specular: edited, please test...

@Midas works fine now, thanks.

Oolauncher v1.0.0.6

webfork on 9 Feb 2016
  • 140KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by webfork

Oolauncher gives you greater control over programs that are automatically started after Windows finishes loading. By spacing out the launching of each application, the system could potentially feel faster and smoother during startup, as opposed to all the applications trying to launch simultaneously.

The program automatically imports current auto-start applications from registry/start folders and starts them one by one. It lets you specify the order, priority, window show style for each application in the list. It also gives you a "Restore" button in case you need to restore certain application back to their original location.

Note: Some users have expressed issues with the program. Main site no longer links to the file -- using Softpedia mirror (thanks midas).

NO NO NO NO NO!!! Should've read the comments more carefully. Now I have to manually rebuild my startup folder and registry entries. This one is kind of dangerous! Either allow it full control, or stay away from it.

Homepage apparently gone, but still available at Softpedia:

Some time ago I looked for such program,
but eventually I ended up with only my own AUTORUN.BAT in HKCU\...\Run.
And inside that BAT file I do what I want:
@ECHO OFF
REM wait 5 sec
PING 127.0.0.1 -n 5 > NUL
START C:\Programs\Totalcmd\ProcessExplorer\procexp.exe
etc.

Same with virtually everything Nir Sofer writes - FANTASTIC! I just replaced Nexus Font with this one. It's GRRRRRRRRREAT ! !

Nick on 2010-02-16 01:35

This does not let you view fonts in other directories or install and uninstall fonts like Nexus Font does though.
