Thanks JK. Great ruler for preparing basic scale drawings in MS Word etc. for DIY projects. I especially like the calibration facility, as I prefer to draw at a size that fits the screen space rather than be constrained to a fixed ruler measurement, so this is perfect for that. (Looked at PMeter, but it didn't seem to suit my purpose at all; nor did various others that were either too limited, irritating or had time limits.) :-)

Hi - I've been looking for a successor to the legendary Cool Ruler from FabSoft, which won't run on W7. Really, I need something that sits horizontally and vertically, measures in pixels, mouse/touchpad grab and move, AND allows me to put as many custom marks as I need.

Is this possible?

It's the last bit which is so frustrating. I've found ONE only which allows me to put ONE custom mark. I am getting quite frustrated that so many authors think I need all kinds of fancy goodies--but if I want a protractor or set-square, I will search one out! And it better have custom marks :[

I don't need colour pickers, magnifiers, diagonal placement, skins & etc. Even the "stay on top" is not truly necessary.

Gordon.

Blows my mind how stagnate NirSoft's programs become, HashMyFiles still doesn't have a way to "Delete files to Recycle Bin" or similar. And all his programs are still plagued with DPI/multi-monitor issues years after reporting about them.

@__philippe:

Fix was about "Explorer context menu" which have absolutely nothing to do with TPFC, so I dared to omit such details

Aha!…Light in the Midst of Darkness…! Ta !
That'll teach me the virtue of first double checking at the very source of any discontent…;-)

Windows Registry Recovery v2.2.0 Updated

Midas on 11 May 2020
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Aug 2019
  • Suggested by AlephX

Windows Registry Recovery allows to directly read files containing Windows registry hives and extract many useful information about the configuration and windows installation settings of the host machine.

Note that the program is not simply a registry editor: it works with other tools, including exported keys. It’s useful for seeing registry issues, sandboxing tools, and diagnostics. To your own computer's registry files, open a NTUSER.DAT system file but keep in mind that these are usually hidden by Windows to avoid accidental deletion.

Category:
System requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Registry, if "Persistent layout" option is enabled (it'll be saved to 'HKCU\Software\MiTeC\Wrr').
Stealth: ? Yes. But only if no layout is saved; otherwise see "Writes settings to" above.
Unicode support: Yes
License: Free for personal use
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch WRR.exe.

You do nothing wrong. It's a peace of SHIT !!! Waste of time !!! At least a single line of help how to use it would be decency!

Raj Sharma on 2009-12-26 02:11

I find it a good Program. Only one of its kind. You should know where your registry hives are.
