LPF (Long Path Finder)

#1 Post by guinness » Wed Nov 16, 2011 2:57 pm

LPF (Long Path Finder) V1.0.0.0
LPF (Long Path Finder) is commandline utility to find files that are greater than a certain length. Windows has a path limit of 255 characters, therefore if this is exceeded it can cause potential problems and lead to an error of inaccessible file.

See MSDN [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa365247.aspx] for more details about the correct approach for naming files.

I realize I'm necroing an old thread, but I've been trying hard to find this program, as well as your VB scripts that this guy made. It doesn't seem possible to get stuff from ge.tt through the internet archive wayback machine. I got the programs that were on Softpedia, but does anyone know where the rest of the stuff from SoftwareSpot can be downloaded?

Unfortunately not. I wish I'd thought to mirror his site somewhere - he had a lot of great stuff that was all open source.

That's too bad, maybe someone knows how to get in contact with him? He may still have it backed up somewhere.

It's too bad the files weren't hosted on the blog, since archive.org may have been able to mirror them. Seems the author switched between Dropbox and then ge.tt, with the latter known to delete inactive downloads after a time.

LICEcap was an application I was looking for, so as a small contribution to TPFC I created this VBScript to do the following. Run licecap.exe, wait for it to close and then move the INI file from the %APPDATA% folder back to the location of where licecap.exe is located. Just save this file as LiceCap.vbs (or something similar) and place next to the executable licecap.exe. Use UniExtract to extract the NSIS installer.

I will be uploading this VBScript code to my website too. [DONE]

Any problems just let me know.

I"m not sure if this was/is the most recent LICEcap.vbs code but it was posted here. Maybe others were also posted?

Are you looking for any of the VBS files specifically? Maybe others on the forum have backups?

Yeah, he posted a couple of them there, but unfortunately he only uploaded most of them to ge.tt.

Any additional VBScripts I create will be posted here from no w on, unless I feel it could be a benefit to TPFC community.
