Re: Bestcrypt Traveller

BestCrypt is NOT free. I was going to respond similarly earlier, but the description above says that it can also create container files: The user may need not only read or write data from/to encrypted container files with a help of BestCrypt Traveller, but also create new encrypted container file. ...

Re: Applications that are Private and Portable

There are users who have no problems with .NET apps (I use my desktop and laptop almost exclusively - I bet I've used my portable programs on other machines less than 20 times in the last 5 years). In a poll I posted a couple of years ago, 6 of 16 respondents said that dependencies were not a proble...

Re: Good audio manager?

J. River Media Jukebox is decent - I had it installed and used it for much of 2009. Contrary to your "get it while it's hot" exhortation, jhonsadins, version 12 has been free for a long time. More importantly, it crashed on me from time to time and it hasn't been updated in years (Media Center is on...

Re: Generate Thumbnail

BTW The prog write a preview.html file to application folder !! Ah, that's what I meant by the "example of the background and text color formatting" which is not really a setting. Granted, changing it was a bit picky on my part - no one's likely to be disappointed (or very surprised) to find that i...

Re: Generate Thumbnail

Wolfghost, You've jumped right in and added some good programs this week. I did some editing on this one, and I thought I'd let you know why. The "how to extract" section for this one is complicated, since the installer is embedded in a self-extracting installer. It's best to follow the standard for...

Re: 7 PDF Maker v 1.0.5

@7-pdf: Am I missing any benefits that your front end for these OpenOffice libraries offers over using the "export" function in the full OpenOfficePortable suite? The 3 differences I can see are: 1. Size on disk: OO.o is 226MB, but it can be stripped down at least below 170 MB by removing help files...

Re: SunlitGreen Photo Editor

BatchBlitz, the batch photo editor offered at the same site, is much more interesting. It includes a wide range of features, with more flexibility than XnView (which doesn't offer a nice GUI or previews) or PhotoScape, which are the closest competitors in the database. I did find a bug right away (w...

Re: Add function implemented

Since there are two components to 64-bit compatibility (whether an app works on 64-bit and whether it's offered in a 64-bit build), I would suggest a category listing one of five levels of 64-bit compatibility: None : Does not run on 64-bit OS Limited : 32-bit only - runs with errors or lacks featur...

Re: ChrisControl

My favorite was mRemote for its incredible feature set, but the developer merged it with a commercial project in late 2008. The last freeware version is available here: http://www.mremote.org/wiki/Downloads.ashx I don't know if it's stealth. UltraVNC offers a free viewer that's a simple standalone e...

While Web2PDF seems like a nice tool, TPFC does not list websites/webapps, only downloadable Windows applications.

Re: Freeware Tools by Stefan Trost Media

I'll let you know if I ever figure out if you can make copies, redistribute the software, or use it commercially. The license makes that REAL hard to understand, chock full of useless legalese doublespeak. I think at least part of the problem is that the author has used software to translate from G...
