I cannot find RedNotebook version 2.0 for Windows (as of 2017-06-11):
https://sourceforge.net/projects/rednotebook/files/
it seems that currently it is available for Linux only.
The latest version available for Windows is 1.15.

@smaragdus: Version 2.2 was recently released for Windows according to changelog here: https://github.com/jendrikseipp/rednotebook/blob/master/CHANGELOG

The project seems to have moved to GitHub. Downloads (Windows .exe and source archives) are here: https://github.com/jendrikseipp/rednotebook/releases. The link to Windows versions on the website now links to there.

FileOptimizer v14.30 Updated

billon on 29 Jul 2020
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Jul 2020
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A list of the 400+ supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

Category:
System requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GNU AGPL
How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

At startup, the program will optionally show ads to support program development. These can be disabled at any time.

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder
  • Delete unnecessary language files

I just tried to reduce the size of a video and it has left me exactly the same and with either option: fast and the best.
Any explanation?.
Best regards.

webfork on 2019-10-06 22:40

@kilouiski: FileOptimizer exists because so few programs take the time and energy to fully compress your files with available tools. It sounds like the program used to generate your video was an exception.

LibreOffice is a complete productivity suite including word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, database, drawing tool and more. Includes strong compatibility for 100s of file formats including Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio etc.). The program is similar to OpenOffice, a program that it was derived from, but has added many new features and improvements.

Alternatively, X-LibreOffice is also available.

Other available portable versions:

  • Still - more tested and stable but with fewer features/capabilities
  • Legacy - for WinXP/Vista users (unsupported)

The program is cross platform with versions available for Mac, Linux/BSD (comes default with most distros) and supports a variety of extensions.

I like this program a lot. Unfortunately it has stopped working on my W7 32bit computer. This has happened befor but then I could get it to work again by running it under XP SP3 compatibility mode, but now nothing helps to get it to work again. This is precisely the kind of software ons does NOT want to stop working. All my data are in the database and I cannot reach it anymore.

In 2.zip - stickies.exe, in 4.zip - stickies.chm, in 6.zip - stickies8.ssk, which should be in "skins" folder, and in 8.zip - mdb2db.exe, which seems converts data DB to the new format and only need if you upgrade from the previous version.

NirSoft makes so many great apps that I use a lot, its difficult to say something new about them due to the fact that just about everything they make works great and is pretty awesome overall. One thing is 4sure the native Micro$oft search engine is close to worthless, so just about anything will be an improvement.

  • 20MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Dec 2018
  • Suggested by Myles

Why don't I use the PDF-XChange Editor? Simple, I need a PDF viewer, not an editor.

Tremendous search program that has saved me again and again, finding files and content that other programs miss. Each version seems to add to the pile of file formats it can index. As a result, it's on every machine I own and some I don't.

MoisheP on 2018-06-17 01:13

DocFetcher indexes many formats, such as LibreOffice documents, that Microsoft Search (aka Cortana) does not, or does incompletely. It also uses far less CPU time, once the initial indexing is completed, than MS. DocFetcher also runs on Linux. Results can be sorted by likelihood of match, as well as filename, type, date etc. Only downside is that it requires Java.

Antivirus programs have a tendency to quarantine or delete Produkey, HeapMemView, and a few of Nir's password recovery tools as well. 90% of Nirsoft utils will pass inspection just fine. Nirsoft is NOT malware by design, and so long as you keep your firewall, user accounts and security updates reasonably current, you'll do just fine. I suppose, in the wrong hands, some of the tools might be mildly threatening to low-security systems. Chances are, though, if a skilled cracker set out to compromise your system, they'd likely use something stronger than Nir's utilities to do it.

Faust on 2010-06-07 15:00

What carbonize and Void said.

Nirsoft's utils are not malware and will not damage your system. However, because they usually poke around in your system looking for info, they use methods that malware often uses, and which causes antivirus programs to identify them as malware.

MIKLO on 2014-04-29 20:30

WOW no comments for a long time but be advised that ProduKey as well as all Nirsoft's programs are safe and are not malware,spyware,viruses or any other bad stuff for your computer. Nirsoft is now and has always been a very good reputable place to get software and many kinds of Apps that help us to use and program out computers how we want without the end user having the abilty to write the code necessary to accomplish this. So thanks so much NIRSOFT for all the great APPS I have used for so many years that have helped me run my computers. PROFFS

For the download link instead of having to always update it you can just point it at this url.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ekeyfinder/files/latest

it will always download the latest version from the project.

Fixed.

In addition to not working for me, it also does not appear to be open source. On the creator's website it is listed as Freeware and I see no link to the source.

.

"ofw08charity.exe" is free but needs registration at the website for the serial. follow instructions for the extract/install up to step #3. there is no need to edit .ini files because the string "OEMRegisterSkip" is not there.

keep the usb version.

The 2008 version is much lighter and faster than OOo. Wow! Looks great so far.

Midas on 2012-03-05 14:13

Testing version 2008, not sure if it is stealth, but seems rather snappy, looks like a keeper...

For those having trouble with installation instructions:

Install it to you desktop machine,
choose default interface language (which you may change later via options),
enter registration details (received freely at email address given while registering for download; also, keep those details, as they are mandatory for SoftMaker Office 2008 installation),
choose location for install (not really important, as you'll be making that install portable),
then choose the custom button on the next dialog for selecting which components of the suite to install (I recommend getting the interface language of your choice, plus all the proofing tools for the languages you understand and minus the SMASH launcher),
then deselect the 'Install application for all users on this computer' option on the next dialog and
proceed to Install.

After that, find the SoftMaker Office entry in the start menu, and under 'tools' you'll find the option to transfer the installation to your portable device, after which you can uninstall from your desktop machine if you wish to.

Really useful soft, as it's multiplatform (Windows & Linux) and can be run portable.

This is one of the most useful tiny helpers EVER!! I love the tool, i strongly recommend it to everybody! I have spent months searching for something similar, and have even made an AutoHotkey-Script to help with clean windowpositioning, but finally, the quest is over ;)

Big Thanx!!

very bad. One of the worse software I've used

Bol on 2008-04-06 00:39

Very interesting application when you take time to invest in it. Much more than Rainlendar although less fancy interface. Has also the import tools and is fully Unicode. Must be used by a large number of users, as it appears in 7 languages already. New search function quite usefull. Imports are possible from Excel. Extra features, such as the Money application, can be used to replace money or quicken in simple households. The music and film functions are quite handy. I'm positively surprised : it's much better than it seems at first hand.

Kea on 2010-07-20 12:52

Apparently not free: "We advise you that the downloaded file gives you the right to try the program for 30 days. If you want to use the program longer than the 30 days, you need to buy the license key with us. The downloaded program is fully functional, and contains all 8 languages"

Generally speaking, if its 4 lower-case letters, this will take a few minutes. If its 5-6, you're looking at hours. Above that, days.

Entry updated. I didn't realize that was offline or I would have fixed before now.
