This is a great tool.

Sure, Outlook can sort or search for e-mails by attachment, but I don't think it can do this across multiple mailboxes.

At work I have my own mailbox but need to access several shared inboxes. When contacts assure me they sent something, a default search in OutlookAttachView looks through every mailbox I have access to, and blindingly fast to boot.

If you have had an end user get mailbox is full notices and they have done EVERYTHING.. This is a great tool to show them that all items are can have attachments. Even their calendar items. Meeting invites are often sent with attachments such a agendas in word format, Power Point presentations and even the occasional picture file. This application scans them and finds them ALL. It has saved my first call resolutions stats.

I love this program. Took me a little bit to figure out how to filter by user (it seems to be visible name, not email address), but it's not hard to use and it's extremely powerful.

I haven`t renamed anything.

@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.

The direct download link does not seem to work, but otherwise the site is alive and well ;>}
There is also a Softpedia page.
The download page: https://streamwriter.org/en/downloads/
where they announce the availability of a "latest build" (e63b34e)

Links corrected (hopefully) -- should that happen again, there's also an "Downloads > All builds" page at https://streamwriter.org/en/downloads/builds.

Thank you Klard for your nice words.

  2. Extract to a folder of your choice.
  3. Create a subfolder called portable (and keep it when upgrading)

Optionally, delete unnecessary locales, and avoid optional traces by running (see this) VLC with a custom config like vlc --config=zero-cache containing:

Per the last comment (or rather comments), it's true VLC is infamous for never including the 64 bit in the regular download page.
I've therefore edited the entry to link to an official archive (more techy page) that always contains both the latest 64 and 32 bit versions (in both 7Z and regular ZIP).

PAFuser on 2022-03-07 20:48

Also available from PortableApps.com (32 bit). (64 bit can replace PortableApps 32 bit files.)

MoisheP on 2023-10-13 14:18

It might be easier for some to download the Windows installer, e.g., vlc-3.0.19-win64.exe directly from videolan.org and unpack using 7-Zip to the VLC folder.
