In my opinion, v6 is a step back (looks more "modern", but lacks versatility) compared to v4 (they are being worked on simultaneously).

In fact the latest version of Sleipnir 4 series is 4.4.3.4000.
I agree with joby_toss that Sleipnir 6 is modern beyond usability.

English page is gone, latest versions (as of 2016.08.03)- 4.5.0 & 6.2.0.

Under Windows 7 (and probably Vista), you may need to run this program as Administrator for it to work.
'SmartSniff' (also from Nirsoft) already has a manifest that will ask for Elevated Privileges.. not sure why this one was missed?

pretty cool program. useful for adding domains to a hosts file or IP addresses to a PeerBlock type of app.

works on raw sockets for me on winXP SP3 so no need to install anything.

The portable x64 version (Q-Dir_Portable_x64.zip) is available for download.

Mithril on 2016-03-27 20:53

Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.
