Incidentally there's an official portable version available on the Calibre website (https://calibre-ebook.com/download_portable), which works fine and appears to be stealth. (No Trolltech keys.)

calibre-ebook.com/download_windows states that current Calibre versions are for Windows 8 and higher, and the last version to fully support Window 7 is calibre 3.48. Downloads for 3.48, including the portable installer version, are at download.calibre-ebook.com/3.48.0/. You should change the system requirements.

AndTheWolf - Although not officially supported, the current release works fine on Windows 7. PortableApps.com is testing every release for compatibility with Windows 7 as part of packaging calibre Portable. One of us will update the listing if something changes in the future.

FileOptimizer v14.60 Updated

webfork on 10 Feb 2021
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Feb 2021
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A list of the 400+ supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line. Many images here on TPFC including our logo have been compressed using FileOptimizer.

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GNU AGPL
How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

At startup, the program will optionally show ads to support program development. These can be disabled at any time.

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder
  • Delete unnecessary language files

That's not portable. I can only get a setup file installing in C: drive.

kilouiski on 2019-09-20 12:09

I just tried to reduce the size of a video and it has left me exactly the same and with either option: fast and the best.
Any explanation?.
Best regards.

webfork on 2019-10-06 22:40

@kilouiski: FileOptimizer exists because so few programs take the time and energy to fully compress your files with available tools. It sounds like the program used to generate your video was an exception.

The reason to choose this office suite over LibreOffice is stability; while it's missing a lot of features, compatibility, customization, and other improvements in LibreOffice, crashes are very unusual.  I keep both on my machine depending on my needs.

Antivirus programs have a tendency to quarantine or delete Produkey, HeapMemView, and a few of Nir's password recovery tools as well. 90% of Nirsoft utils will pass inspection just fine. Nirsoft is NOT malware by design, and so long as you keep your firewall, user accounts and security updates reasonably current, you'll do just fine. I suppose, in the wrong hands, some of the tools might be mildly threatening to low-security systems. Chances are, though, if a skilled cracker set out to compromise your system, they'd likely use something stronger than Nir's utilities to do it.

Faust on 2010-06-07 15:00

What carbonize and Void said.

Nirsoft's utils are not malware and will not damage your system. However, because they usually poke around in your system looking for info, they use methods that malware often uses, and which causes antivirus programs to identify them as malware.

MIKLO on 2014-04-29 20:30

WOW no comments for a long time but be advised that ProduKey as well as all Nirsoft's programs are safe and are not malware,spyware,viruses or any other bad stuff for your computer. Nirsoft is now and has always been a very good reputable place to get software and many kinds of Apps that help us to use and program out computers how we want without the end user having the abilty to write the code necessary to accomplish this. So thanks so much NIRSOFT for all the great APPS I have used for so many years that have helped me run my computers. PROFFS

Oh, I forgot to mention that it come with installer, but it work on portable usb. Just extract IpSwitch.exe and run it. Program settings will be saved in data.ini in same location as IpSwitch.exe

ikke on 2010-08-03 00:02

@tpig:
Don't recommend outdated crap please.
Eusing's free IP Switcher refuses to work on anything better than Windows XP. So it's virtually useless.

AdrianK_IT on 2012-04-06 09:33

Please would someone edit the 'Synopsis' so it is less misleading. Apparently, this software is for ' ... mobile users ... at ... office ... ' yet is only 'free for personal use'!
