Both Stellarium Portable and X-Stellarium appear to be at v0.12.4 (on 2014-7-22) rather than the v0.13.0 mentioned in the title.

@Foot: sorry about that, I forget they're third party repacks. PA has updated now...

X-Mouse Button Control v2.16.1 Updated

billon on 25 Jun 2017
  • 7MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 Jun 2017
  • Suggested by risk

X-Mouse Button Control (XMBC) allows you to set a variety of controls for your mouse. For example, you can set a button copy, paste, undo, volume up/down, forward-backward (in browser), scrolling background windows, and many more.

Changes can be application-specific, meaning simply changing applications will automatically swap mouse controls, but they can also be user-managed and based on a hot-key. So your mouse can work as basic volume controls for your music player as well as back and forward buttons for your browser.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: A mouse and driver that supports 5 buttons (e.g. Windows default mouse driver).
Stealth: ? No. Creates empty registry key.
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the "Portable version" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Depending on your operating system, choose the 32bit (x86) or 64bit (x64) folder (if you're not sure, go with the 32bit)
  3. Launch XMouseButtonControl.exe

Must have indeed!

@billon: There is no "working" EXE file within the 32bit (x86) folder. That's why I presently didn't update to v2.12.

v2.12.1 has a "working" EXE again.

Wow it works! I tried the latest at the time of writing this comment Mp3tag v2.79 and 7-zip v16.04 on Windows 7. Thank you tedpoe!!

Extract with 7-zip 16.04 (.paf.exe), but run Mp3tag without add folder and file named "mp3tag.cfg" is okay, added folder and file named "mp3tag.cfg", Mp3tag show "Access denied"
