Download link (http://www.peazip.org/peazip-portable.html) raises a 404 "not found" error. Link instead just to http://www.peazip.org/ or to http://peazip.sourceforge.net/peazip-portable.html.

@ Joe: Thanks ... and updated ;)

libiconv2.dll does not seem to in setup. Works without it.

Works in Windows 10, but noticed recently that it creates a folder in the temp location

I haven't found any files created in that location, observing it during a few tests; it is just an empty folder., so PDFTK Builder is not completely stealth in Windows 10 (still my favourite PDF utility since 2003)

Website and Download Location has changed now:

Even though this program was written a long time ago it still works on Windows 8.1. (Sorry, but I don't have a Windows 7 machine to test it). Other than this, I would like to bring the following to TFPC's attention:

1. Somehow or the other I wasn't able to find this entry on TFPC. I searched for "DriveZ" or "drivez" (without the quotes) and found nada, zero, zilch. Maybe I'm missing something but I'm out of ideas. I only happened to come across this TFPC listing while I was searching for DriveZ on the Internet.

2. Both the website and download links you have above redirects to Softpedia and I get "ERROR: 410 Gone". Obviously, Softpedia (for whatever reasons of their own) has de-listed this program.

3. The current home page for this software is http://www.inet.hr/~dragvola/index.html and NOT the one in the accountant's post above.

Please amend your listing.

This program is really good and if you like it you'll love 'TheSage Dictionary'.

It would be nice to have a G rated version so that I could use it in the classroom. Cool tool though, thank you
