I never ever thought of using the installer, I was just testing the download link- the problem with the installer download doesn't appear for the first time. However both primary download links (installer & archive) work fine now.
Thanks to the developer for maintaining and improving the program and for not ruining the interface (so far) like many other freeware developers did recently.

Just teasing, of course...;-)

Download error:

Seems to happen from time to time. Looks like this guy needs a better hosting package.

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.

starshakur on 2018-05-05 15:17

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

Time to start looking for an alternative, till then i'll use Windows Explorer.

@billon

I haven`t renamed anything.

billon on 2019-03-05 23:40

@hamasaki:

On my side:
FontViewOK_p.exe - FontViewOK.ini in the program's folder
FontViewOK.exe - FontViewOK.ini in APPDATA
Something wrong on your side

hamasaki on 2019-03-07 22:06

@billon

I don`t think so. I download the zip, run FontViewOK_x64_p.exe (from a folder called FontViewOK) and the data gets stored in the AppData folder initially. No big deal, once I moved the ini file it`s been fine.

NOTE: Recent press about CCleaner indicates it may represent a privacy concern.

CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool. The program cleans unused, temporary and log files from your system, as well as traces of online activities such as Internet history and flash cookies. The program contains startup controls for Windows, major internet browsers and context menu entries. Includes a separate registry cleaner, duplicate search, system restore tool and can wipe both deleted files and drive free space for security.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder). Monitoring functions are only available in the pro version.

Additional cleaner rules can be using an unofficial set of community-developed set. It should be noted that many of these rules are alpha and the developers will not provide support for these rules, a thread in the users forum is dedicated to supporting the add-on rules.

Alternatively, ccPortable is also available.

@bzl333 weel, you have to bear criticism if you want to improve! (unkind criticism is another matter)
Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)

Per CALIBRE Version: 2.33.0 beyond version 1.48x CALIBRE no longer supports XP.

Incidentally there's an official portable version available on the Calibre website (https://calibre-ebook.com/download_portable), which works fine and appears to be stealth. (No Trolltech keys.)
