my mistake, I was referring to registryfinder

@patrickdrd: please delete the erroneous version info, then.

Special on 2020-06-04 16:53

This version (v2.50) doesn't acknowledge my regscanner.ini... Doesn't even create a new one either. Going back to the preview version works fine though.

As mentioned above the problems with unicode were solved. Zip now contains a text file with following advise:

>> Please start IrfanView and call (once) any of the dialogs:
- Properties (P), or
- File->Open (O), or
- File->Save As (S), or
- Batch (B)
to convert/set IrfanView INI file to UNICODE mode !

If the INI file is not converted to Unicode, some of the options (like filenames, paths or text options)
may NOT be saved properly and the feature may not be working as expected.

@hamasaki, To save notes to DropBox , use the Export function, and Export to your Dropbox location.

Cornflower on 2015-01-02 21:37

Printing! I don't know where I saw it, but to Print from Mempad, Export (Page, Node, or Structure), then in the dialogue box, tick "Open the file" and "with program:" and type in notepad.exe /p (or as I do, ted.exe /p -- see ted.exe at http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=858)

hamasaki on 2015-05-01 15:25

@Cornflower, I`ve tried that but when you save in MemPad it doesn`t update the dropbox file, you have to export it again. No good.

@outskirter: I had the same problem while testing the latest version (MS Sans Serif font isn't really ClearType friendly); solved with ResHack by finding all instances of 'MS Sans Serif' and replacing them with 'MS Shell Dlg'...

Was testing some Notepad alternatives the other night, and while TED Notepad is relatively small in size, it uses almost 4x the memory (hovering around 9MB). Just a FYI.

Thanks for making this BGM. I think I may have come across this in one of its earlier version. After re-testing it has now replaced Numculator as my go-to calculator due to the swiftness of its launch.

@billion any idea where I could find the changelog for 1.8+? Could only source up to 1.7 on the documentation site.

billon on 2019-05-21 11:44

@Specular:

v1.8 wasn't announced even on DonationCoder
Maybe v1.9 changelog is summary for 1.8 too?
Or maybe BGM himself can clear this?

only problem i run into with this wonderful app is it doesn't work for all apps.

Ruby on 2011-06-22 16:00

@Magibon

I find that RegFromApp will only capture reg writes if the app your monitoring is actually doing the writing.

Let's say your monitoring an app/installer that creates a 'Working directory' e.g. %temp%/MonitoredApp and dumps some files that now write to the registry, these writes do not get captured because the monitored app is not doing the writing.

How I find RegFromApp useful:

1. In concert with Regshot: RegFromApp will only capture writes from the program not the system.

2. Capture and Export: I use Chromium web browser and pass args on the command line to keep all files in the app directory e.g. --user-data-dir=.\
The only problem is that when I "Make Chromium my Default Browser" it doesn't transfer the command line to the registry.

By starting Chromium from/within RegFromApp as an admin I can capture these reg entries and export for editing (search and replace) with a text editor and add the command line and merge back into the registry.

This program doesn't work anymore. When launching any app through it, both the 32 and 64-bit versions just display "Failed to start with the new selected process. Error code: 299
