It doesn't have functionality far in advance of other editors, but the interface is great. There are big, clear icons, themes, easy tabbed interface, and a really smooth options menu. If you think text editors are supposed to be functional rather than friendly, this might not be your cup of tea. Otherwise...

PapaiMark on 2020-02-25 15:11

Nice. The best text compare Ive ever seen. And mainly because of the trim-left/right.

eitang on 2021-12-10 15:46

Hi all,

Yes, Great editor !!! BUT:

Although it says compatible with Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 version v18.2.1 is NOT compatible with (at least) Win XP SR3 (which I still use).

I wrote to support@texteditor.pro but no reply as yet.

Anybody has a cure ? a Work Arounfd ? (it may be some useless DLL, for example...)

TIA,

PortableApps.com AppCompactor v3.7.4 Updated

Ennovy on 15 May 2024
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 May 2024
  • Suggested by Checker

PortableApps.com AppCompactor allows you to compress whole directories including applications, file libraries and zip files. The program is a powerful compression tool that unites 7-Zip and UPX inside a user-friendly wizard. For applications, this saves disk space and increases performance when running from a slow media (like flash drives). For archives, this will recompress DLL, EXE, ZIP, JAR, IRC, PYD and BIN files to their maximum compression settings, as well as an option to decompress an app's binary files that were previously compressed with UPX.

All files are tested using UPX's test feature after compressing. Files smaller than 4K are automatically skipped as compressing will not save space on the drive. The standard Microsoft Visual C runtimes are skipped to prevent antivirus false-positives. Advanced configuration can be done with apps in PortableApps.com Format.

Note: As UPX will alter the EXEs and DLLs (reversible using the Decompress option in the AppCompactor) and some apps may have issues with Zip or Jar files compressed further, users should backup software and test it after processing.

tommyD: Disadvantages are that it breaks some programs, and it may be slightly more CPU-intensive to decompress libraries and executables on the fly.

I couldn't run this on win2k; it hides in the system tray without a way to display it. I even tried using Process Explorer's Properties.Image.Bring to Front resulting in the msgbox: No visible windows found for this process

Tim I know this is an old post but I hope by now you have upgraded from Win2K after all it is the twenty first century. For me this software works as advertised!

Things have changed a bit, can you make something happen by tweaking settings in Backup & Multi Instance... looking at the changelog some settings have been tweaked regarding Sessions???
