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.

outskirter on 2013-02-18 00:14

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.

Great tool, and a utility that Windows Admin Tools should have by default. Disabling automatic restart and writing down error codes is one thing, but this is so useful when helpful other users who often fail to record the correct information -- and saves them doing so when installed. Two thumbs up.

Saw this tool getting used recently by high-level tech support folks. Definitely an important tool for Windows diagnosis.

only problem i run into with this wonderful app is it doesn't work for all apps.

Ruby on 2011-06-22 16:00

@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.

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.

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.

Not bad but can't work with Java.

ttttt11111 on 2013-09-17 17:14

I was worried that QtWeb was as dead as K-meleon. It hadn't been updated in more than a year. Thankfully, I was wrong.

QtWeb makes for a great secondary browser or portable browser, or even as a primary browser if you don't like bloatware. It's small and fits on a flash ram of at least 2GB, and contains all modern web technologies except java.

The lack of java isn't a problem for those who don't visit sites laden with that crap. It works with adobe flash, so youtube and other sites work fine.

The only downside to QtWeb is a lack of plugins or extensions. It would be nice to have an adblocker (especially for youtube) or other content blocker.

SYSTEM on 2016-09-26 18:03

I adjusted the entry for the fact that Qt is now a publicly traded company, no longer owned by Digia. (Funnily enough, it's traded in Nasdaq Helsinki, of all stock exchanges...)

Place a shortcut to Bintext in your Windows SendTo folder so that you can quickly send files to BinText by right-clicking on their names and choosing Send To -> BinText from the drop-down menu.

You can set this up by right-clicking on bintext.exe, selecting Copy then open up your WindowsSendTo folder, right click the mouse and select Paste Shortcut

As an added bonus, files get automatically loaded in BinText "Advanced view" mode, no need even for clicking the GO button...;-)

"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".

smaragdus on 2015-04-15 04:09

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.

"Includes disc testing, verification (that files are exactly the same as those on the disc)"

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.

It should be pointed out that this tool only works on old versions of Opera (below version 15). Today Opera is based on the code of Chrome Web browser, so you should use ChromeCacheView, which also works with Windows 10.

Please note that the link posted above by Emka works only if you include the final slash...

Just gave this a try and I'm quite impressed!

You can tell that the developer used Photoshop as an inspiration and it shows.

A shame that the developer has ceased work on it, but for a 4.79 MB app, it's way more than I initially expected.

Perhaps the best Photoshop clone you've never heard of. Recommended!

One of the best image editors. Amazing that it has layers and it loads so fast unlike paint.net.

WebVideoCap v1.41

Checker on 22 Mar 2014

WebVideoCap allows you to capture Flash video format (.FLV) files and RTSP/MMS video streams downloaded in your web browser. After the entire video file is downloaded and played by the Web browser, the video file is saved in the folder that you selected, and save and to play offline. The program can capture the video files of most popular video-sharing sites, including YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo Video, iFilm, Metacafe, Putfile etc.

Note: You can use WebVideoCap under Windows Vista with SP1, but you must download and install the WinPcap driver, and select the WinPcap driver as the capture method, so it is functional but not portable.

I thought software that facilitates the download of youtube videos was illegal?

juvera on 2011-10-15 14:28

Use a web-based downloader such as: http://keepvid.com
I works great with youtube.

webfork on 2011-10-15 20:43

larry: I wish techcrunch would take that to a lawyer. Nobody accepts a user agreement / terms of use to use Youtube so you can't be in violation of one if you didn't agree to it. They got a cease-and-desist and panicked because, you know, its Google.

@the_watcher - I'm on Win 8.1 and don't use Windows Explorer that often so I can't really verify. I use CubicExplorer.

Does anyone know of a way I could use this as a replacement "Sendto" menu. There's no software I've found that can do it. I would love to make my Sendto menu more portable when reinstalling Windows.
