@billon

Thanks for your quietly updating Tixati's main entry, following the above agitation...;-)

  • "Uncompressed size": revised total footprint of relevant Win PE binaries
  • "How-to-extract": added pertinent advice to discard irrelevant Unix binaries

__philippe on 2017-02-24 23:33

@smaragdus
(Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).)

Quite so, strictly speaking...

BUT...

Currently, the "Uncompressed size" field is formally defined in the entry form as:
   "Total size of application files when fully unarchived/uncompressed".

We don't really want to open a whole 'nother can of worms about what exactly ought to be the appropriate scope of the "uncompressed size" field definition, with implication for every current entry in the Data Base, do we ?

...;-)

@Cornflower: It is true that the first duckduck.go links point to pages that actually do not host the "desired" version. But further down in the list of pages, I could download the file from https://en.taiwebs.com/windows/download-foxit-reader-portable-3493.html

I noticed that the page mentions a "password" which was not needed for accessing or running the app.

I checked on virustotal FoxitReaderPortable_2023.2.0.21408.paf.exe (what you download) and FoxitReaderPortable.exe (after uniextracting the paf file), and both came up clean.
But I did not check the "multitude" of DLLs ...

I could launch the app, and did not go further, since I have no use for this app.

"How to extract: 3. The program will save to the root of that drive."
You can however manually enter the path where to extract the program, so that you don't have to move the folder later

My first attempt to download EditPad Lite v8.42 resulted in a zero-length SetupEditPadLite.exe and a cryptic error message. After some research I discovered that your download points to http://download.jgsoft.com/editpad/SetupEditPadLite.exe, but my browser enforces the https protocol. Downloading from httpS://download.jgsoft.com/editpad/SetupEditPadLite.exe worked.
