TreeSheets

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

It only writes some settings from the Options menu to the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TreeSheets
+ a list of recently used files.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TreeSheets]
"lastopenfile_0"="P:\\Peter\\TreeSheets\\name of file1.cts"
"numopenfiles"=dword:00000002
"defaultfont"="Segoe UI"
"lefttabs"=dword:00000001
"totray"=dword:00000001
"minclose"=dword:00000001
"singletray"=dword:00000001
"file1"="P:\\Peter\\TreeSheets\\name of file1.cts"
"file2"="P:\\Peter\\TreeSheets\\name of file2.cts"
"file3"=""
"file4"=""
"file5"=""
"file6"=""
"file7"=""
"file8"=""
"file9"=""
"maximized"=dword:00000000
"resx"=dword:000003e8
"resy"=dword:000002ee
"posx"=dword:00000215
"posy"=dword:000000cb
"lastopenfile_1"="P:\\Peter\\TreeSheets\\name of file2.cts"

So it's not stealth, but I don't care. I like it a lot and use it for some time now. Great PIM

Looks interesting, thanks.

I noticed

Code: Select all

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.cts
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TreeSheets
added to the registry when run in admin mode (win7).

Not anything that hasn't already been covered above, but you can see the dev responding to a portable request. Seems the place to request a stealth status if that was a priority for anyone here.

In this post: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic ... Uf8ROJYFik

the publisher of TreeSheets writes:
You can run TreeSheets with the -p command line option to run it in portable mode. It will not use the registry, but instead attempt to write to a .ini file in the current directory.
Tested
Started with the -p command all settings are written to TreeSheets.ini
No more entries in the registry.

Really like the look of this, will try!

And voted.

Do you think the line in the entry '... and launch with TreeSheets -p' will make sense to users? I mean, anyone technical will get it but wondering if there should be some FAQ link about it.

I just ran through the uniextract process for this program and it doesn't resemble what's on the website.

I've got:
  • $INSTDIR
    $PLUGINSDIR
    ýŸ€
... but no $_OUTDIR

It *looks* like you just need the contents of $INSTDIR and then you can throw in the various other files from ýŸ€ if you want (you have to manually open those files as the program can't see them).

Is that just me? Can anyone confirm this?

This is what I get when I extract the installer (I am using the latest version of 7-Zip- 15.12):
TreeSheet - extraction - 2015-11-21.png
TreeSheet - extraction - 2015-11-21.png (7.25 KiB) Viewed 32367 times
Everyone is getting different folder contents depending on the extractor used and its version. So I think that the procedure to use TreeSheets as a portable program as explained in the database entry is not very accurate.
