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.

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.

lwc on 2020-06-05 17:06

Additionally, users can open existing files and make rapid changes to the entire document.

It is not at all intuitive, but once you play with it a bit, It comes together.
I probably won't use it on my own computers where Open Office Portable is much handier, but as I like to keep my usb key light, I keep it there. Hint: go over your Open Office documents and see what styles you like to use, and update the openoffice-style.gwen template. I found this makes it more user friendly, as I am dealing with my own tastes.

FLV Joiner v0.6

lwc on 23 Aug 2019
  • 68KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Nov 2010
  • Suggested by Cornflower

FLV Joiner is a fast and simple tool for combining multiple flash videos into one. The program is "lossless" meaning it does not recompress the files. Tested on FLV1/H263, VP6, AVC/H264 flash video formats and can handle VFR files without synchronization problems.

Note: Sometimes, if a file join fails, a second try will succeed.

Links fixed - thanks Checker

Thanks to Ralph for his tidbit in comment #6 about fixing issues where the joined FLV would crash the video between the joined portions by re-transcoding the entire joined FLV. (I used Video to Video instead of XMedia Recode.)

It would be perfect if the author adds Queue function~

It certainly got a lot of press as an impressive tool but I was unable to test it.

There's a "laptop mode" on this one that doesn't use the numpad but it still refuses to use anything except the F10 through F12 keys and those are currently mapped to something else.

I edited this but found out it is definitely shareware to late (there was some question in the forums)

Hopefully with the freeware installer version it is possible to run portable.

freakazoid on 2011-02-07 00:49

Yikes! 100MB for real?

Heck on 2011-02-07 14:04

Hi!

I run the shareware version on my usb g3 stick - and it runs great. the 100mb are not the problem today...
There is also a special price offer at the moment - you can get it for 9.95 EUR instead of 19.95 EUR. For all that were interested in ordering a license...

Cheers, Heck

Excellent program imho. I'v been using it for about five years now.

Generally good, thoug the search function is primitive

I guess this is a PDF *creator* and not editor... useful to create a PDF from scratch but can not edit existing ones...

Nate on 2010-03-24 18:14

It shouldn't be included in as a PDF editor.
All it is is a rich text editor that 'prints to PDF'.

robzuc on 2015-07-14 08:59

As in 2010 year comments, this is not a real editor: it just can't open any pdf file.

@Billo255: that note was implying the "Download" link. We'll have to wait and see if anyone comes up with an alternative URL...

Billo255 on 2015-12-14 00:51

@Midas - Thanks but still confused. I was thinking the note meant that it was being hosted by PFC but the download link goes off into limbo the same way the weblink to the authors site does. (or at least it did when I clicked on it a few days ago).

Midas on 2015-12-14 16:37

All those dead links never pointed to TPFC -- you can check the tooltip on mouse over, the explicit linking to TPFC is just a database device to launch the original URL. TPFC usually doesn't host any files...

Steganos LockNote v1.0.5

Checker on 6 Oct 2015

LockNote works in two ways: it is a notepad that encrypts everything you put inside and also creates copies of itself when you drag-drop a text file into it. You end up with a new EXE that displays the content of that text file when run using the correct password.

Category:
Runs on: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: GPL
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch LockNote.exe.
What's new? New:
  • Changed default font to Lucida Console to avoid 1/l - O/0 confusion.
  • Font typeface can be selected (Arial/Courier New/Lucida Console/Tahoma/Verdana).
  • Font size can be selected (9/10/12/14).
  • LockNote saves window size, font size and font typeface.
Fixed:
  • Find Dialog: Enter/Tab/Escape/Space/Ctrl-V keys work.
  • Find Dialog: Message displayed if search string is not found.
  • Find Dialog: F3 brings up Find Dialog or finds next result.

Gris on 2009-11-14 17:22

It would be nice if LockNote will have an option to increase font sizes.

codeNinja on 2015-10-05 08:17

For everyone still using this, be aware that version 1.0.5 still has some bugs.

User review from username al156243 in sourceforge posted this on 01/04/2015

"Locknote has a clean simple design. I would be very useful if not for a fatal bug where it occasionally fails to save changes. There is no error message or any other indication that it has failed. I have had it working perfectly for a long period of time and, for no reason, suddenly stops updating changes. If I use "save as" to create a new file, it will continue to work but will eventually fail again for no apparent reason. "

User review from username fireshadow500 in sourceforge posted this on 02/22/2013

"Be careful - LockNote silently fails to save data. You can tell by watching the Modified timestamp ... when it fails it doesn't change. I lost critical banking login details. I am using KeePass now, which isn't great for handling text but at least it is reliable."

review link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/locknote/reviews/

If you still want to use this, make backups when updating the content and always check if content is saved properly.

An alternative to this is fSekrit (smaller and works the same as lockNote) http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=784

Dead!

From the site: "I'm afraid that, due to the people at Google kindly informing me of their ToS I have removed the Google Map Buddy from this website, and any other websites its hosted on.

I hope that people who downloaded it got some use out of it - and if they still have their copies they should continue to work.
I'm afraid I won't be able to respond to any queries about the software, or develop it any further. If anyone knows or an alternative tool as good as or better than Google Map Buddy for creating offline large maps then let me know and I'll place a link up here. "
