I tried to use latest zip (8.4), could not do anything. There was no option to add rules. May be something is wrong with the UI or it does not support Windows 8.1 N version.

i take that back, i just tried using this and im disappointed in the interface.

sadly, the abundance of features make it very difficult to use.

im sticking with Advanced Renamer, while it doesn't provide support for multilanguages, it's interface is much more user-friendly. simplicity and ease of use for me is important.

i'll use this only when required for multilanguages, but for everyday usage, im sticking with Advanced Renamer.

this is indeed a very robust renamer!

im torn between this and Advanced Renamer :(

both are great, coming from payware 'Better File Renamer', both these freeware offer every naming scheme/option!

this seems to provide more support for multi-languages.
i will probably make the switch to this.

great add.!

I should have checked the website first. Seems the author has a separate version for just such a problem...

Unfortunately, this doesn't work with Win2000 and older versions of WinXP due to the latest MS compilers. Gives this message...
"The procedure entry point DecodePointer could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNAL32.dll."

This is the best one out there, nothing comes even close.
And to "shine", your link directs to a product that is not free and on top of that, does not have any of the features that Flexible Renamer has. I suggest that you use it before judging it, unless you are spamming for your own product.

Flexible Renamer does a super job at renaming digital photos. Cameras name jpg photo files in a undiscernable format, e.g. "P17438". Flexible Renamer automatically retrieves date and time values from Exif metadata and renames accordingly. Now my digital photos are named YearMonthDay-HourMinuteSecond, e.g. "20100519-142306".

I conclude that this is great as it can rename in different languages. But my vote is still for http://www.ulfwood.net/RenameFiles/FileRenamer.aspx free to use but works like it is a premium tool.

Flexible Renamer has support for filtering of source files, which not all renamers have. This feature is useful when renaming large number of files selectively.
Version 8.0 is stated to have Unicode Support now.

Be careful, the link to the German download is more apparent than the English download. But an awesome piece of software nonetheless.
