It's great except it does not support regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind.

@Guido76 Yeah I gotta agree I don't really like the way this is done either, I'm just gonna keep using the older (NO NAG) version that works great. This is still my favorite and best name changer in my opinion..... Please donate, but ya gotta "donate" this amount is a very strange concept, but I guess a guy has gotta make some Euro's some kinda way. lol

What is unfortunate is that the new version includes a license proposal. Nothing is mandatory "a priori", but to see appearing in the interface the mention "Not registered" is unpleasant. Especially because the proposal of donation is not free, but fixed at 10 euros minimum.

@ joby_toss thanks for a great link that makes clear many useful things about portable installs :) Advanced Renamer is still my fav app for name changing one or many files,so user friendly.

Advanced Renamer is stealth but the exiftool.exe within is not, it leaves behind a 19MB folder: AppData\Local\Temp\par-username\cache-exiftool-10.04.

Even if terminated properly, the folder stays.

Its still the best in my opinion :)

I have used many "Renamer" apps B4 but this is one of the best I have used, easy user interface and does what is says....... what a concept :)
