I agree,minimizing to tray and hotkey would make this perfect.
It works great from my mp3 player.It can use the random playlist the mp3 player generated so I dont miss the random button so much.

lautrepay on 2012-02-05 23:16

I'm afraid that hotkey support is not in the immediate plans of Mr. Pawlowski for Boom: "Noteworthy features currently missing:
Internet radio playback is not supported.
No easy way to integrate with Windows Explorer other than manually going through "open with" / "choose default program" for every relevant file type.
No audio CD playback."
Just a guess, but with this GUI I think the target is touchscreens...

User2100 on 2014-11-29 19:45

There are lighter lightweight players with more features, but this is a single executable player that doesn't seem to "cheat" by using OS decoders. It starts instantly and the interface looks very nice (truly minimalistic and not just tiny and clumped up). I'm very much missing a time slider though. That's not a small feature to leave out of a media player. It only has fast forward and reverse, which is not very useful for things like skimming trough mixes.

Not true, Kitty (0.65.0.0 plain vanilla, md5: 4cce0b4f7670492fe06fcb9b673de8d7) + kitty.ini (with savemode=dir) It's not portable, It writes this:

c:\Users\Application Data\KiTTY\

Midas on 2015-11-15 20:39

@siegfried: I confirm your findings, even after adding a "configdir=" key with a relative path.

I'm not sure the program isn't portable like that, but it sure isn't stealth. In my defense, the method I mentioned was working in prior versions (see above). I posted the issue in KiTTY's forum: http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?action=forum&id=0653 ... :(

BTW, this update (and the lack of changelog thereof) is probably caused by a version and code synch with PuTTY, which was prompted by a newly found vulnerability patch:

"2015-11-07 PuTTY 0.66 released, fixing a SECURITY HOLE
PuTTY 0.66, released today, fixes a security hole in 0.65 and before: vuln-ech-overflow."

  • Unused (off) plugins are now unloaded from memory (plghost processes are terminated)
  • Now contacts are fully handled by Isotoxin itself (not by plugins, as it was in previous version). This led to a change in the profile format and (I hope) to fix a contact corrupt problem.

Important! New profile no longer compatible with old versions of Isotoxin's (profile will be automatically upgraded). If you want to use old version of Isotoxin, please, backup profile (btw, Isotoxin backups your profile every start, see backup path in system settings)

@webfork: Yes, that solved it. I just copied the plugin folder from the old Notepad++ to the new one. Good for me i kept a backup.

Fixitman on 2016-10-17 14:07

I use the following version (on XP) and see no need to update it.
If you're having problems try the old version (your problems might then be attributed to an updated OS such as Windows 7 or later, which I refuse to use, especially the buggiest of them all, Windows 10)
I see comments above about file extensions, but I've NEVER had that problem, don't those people do the "save as" button? This version has that.
When on Linux I don't need this, as it has its own text editors that are better than anything Microsoft ever issued, to start with!

"December 19 2010-- Notepad++ v5.8.6
In this new release, a minimalist package is added.
It contains only the files needed to run Notepad++ with no plugins, no themes, no autocompletion API files, no auto-updater and no localization files.
The package is much smaller and Notepad++ will run faster."

Craunch on 2012-07-03 13:45

Midas, I've just been playing with this and ran into the problem you described. On investigation I realised that there are two type of environment variables: Text String and Expandable String. Text String variables (orange tag) will not expand contained references to other environment variables when they are used. Expandable String variables (blue tag) will expand their references when used. You can change their type by F6 or via the right-click menu. These two types seem to be a feature of how Windows now stores environment variables internally.

A few judicious type changes got my environment where I wanted it to be.

Thanks for that, Craunch. Vital info, IMHO. I'll look into it ASAP. :)

Both Nirsoft's TCPLogView and Sysinternals' TCPview offer about the same set of functionalities.

However, the alternative Sysinternals' TCPview might have a slight edge in its skilled use of color background for highlighting DYNAMIC TCP connections activities:

It feels nimbler at popping up a log line (on a green background) for each transient new active connections and at briefly flashing an existing log line (on red background) before its connection is torn down.

Added 'Write To Log File' option. When it's turned on, all log lines are automatically written to TcpLogView.csv located in the same folder of TcpLogView.exe

ArsClip remembers the most recent clipboard entries and allows you to quickly paste one or multiple items into a program by pressing a hotkey (by default ctrl+shift+z). You can configure it to monitor both text and other data types, and lets you create permanent items that are always visible. There are also multiple ways for entering items into a program, including a "form mode" for pasting to multiple fields in one step (e.g. name, date, address, etc.).

I've used this heavily every day for several years. It's golden. Like most good software, there's a learning curve, but the flexibility and precision of this program rewards your effort.

hamasaki on 2013-04-24 07:33

Agree with Crid. Might have had some issues initially, but I use it regularly each day without issues. Its such a timesaver. And having the shortcut to pop up the menu is superb. Not seen any other clipboard utlities come close to this one.

hamasaki on 2013-07-29 12:41

I think Arsclip makes all other clipboard utilities redundant, its that good. Could have a better name though.

Hello Skwire,

Here is a list of bugs I encountered after a couple of minutes testing it:
-It doesn't always show app icon in about child GUI, I think your better of using static control and STM instead of picture control, less embarrassing.
-Use "UseErrorLevel" when running a link in case there is no default browser.
-Very slow startup.

@apometron
What you state is not true, both Pidgin and Miranda NG can connect to Facebook via plug-ins. It is not Miranda IM and Pidgin fault that evil Facebook dumped open-source XMPP (Jabber) protocol in favour of a proprietary, closed-source one. Anyway, using Facebook for communication is the worst choice possible.

Specular on 2016-03-11 09:03

I think if Miranda IM doesn't support Facebook it could simply be removed from the description. If Miranda NG works with it it might be worth adding to its entry for users who are looking for the support.

Nice little player. The website has a page with plugins, but it's slightly misleading. The "Qmmp Plugin Pack" download directs to the player itself, and the others require building from source/installed dependencies.

Realist on 2016-10-06 16:25

Why do we another music player and that too which looks like WinAMP?

MIKLO on 2017-01-15 17:15

@Realist, I believe the more we have the better they will all get or they go away, after all competition makes the world go round. I would agree if all are the exact same then it is a waste, but coders usually try and add something more useful that the last version doesn't have. Just my thoughts. :)

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!

Keep in mind that, because this is written in Autohotkey, it uses hardly any memory (on my system about 2Mb). It also provides functionality that a GUI launcher completely lacks, such as changing an existing Explorer window to one of your preference, without having to open another window. It's too bad the GHacks review linked above wasn't very thorough, because it's easy to brush the program off without knowing about all it's capable of.

RainrooM on 2016-06-18 16:18

For sure a must-have utility. Basic enough still (luckily) but with great potential. A very big time saver especially in corporate environments where you can have a deep folder structure to switch quick to your favourite folders. Very useful also when saving files to folders and you what to access that folder quickly to save. In active development. Check it out. The smalest and back-to-basic programs are often the best ones in general. This one belongs to the list.

What perplexes me about this program is its clandestine development. If one opens its history page:
http://www.eonet.ne.jp/~gakana/tablacus/history/
one will see that "Fix minor bugs" & "Minor changes" prevail but there are no details whatsoever about them.

Usage of Tablacus suits me better than Q-Dir, but it started to suffer that typical 98% CPU wacko thing that chased me away, Q-Dir also continues to be buggy since XP up to Win10 at refreshing the folders tree after deletion, renaming, etc (some times). I'm started to get suited with Double commander although still missing Drag-Select.

ripu on 2016-10-14 14:42

@xor I am not sure if I understand you. But, refreshing in general spikes the cpu. If I am at the desktop, without opening any software and start hitting refresh, the cpu will be at 99%.

  • 51MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Jan 2017
  • Suggested by vixay

DocFetcher indexes your computer, making the contents of a wide variety of files instantly searchable. Selecting a search result shows a preview of the file with text highlighted and without formatting. You can filter results by location, file type, minimum and/or maximum filesize, and more. The program can index Microsoft Office, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, PDF, RTF, EPUB, HTML, and more formats from drives, external volumes, archive files, and Outlook .PST files.

Cross-platform and functional on OS X and Linux.

Note: DocFetcher requires that you add folders/drives that you want to view before searching. See the "Basic Usage" section of the homepage for a few intro steps. When adding to the search scope, make sure to check "Store relative paths if possible"

If you see a memory error (very rare): either reduce the size/number of files indexed, or do the following (64-bit users only):

  1. In a text editor, edit misc\DocFetcher.bat so that the last line reads -Xmx4096m
  2. Move this file to the main folder
  3. Save and launch DocFetcher.bat, ignoring DocFetcher.exe from now on

  • Polish GUI translation.
  • DocFetcher now ships with Windows launchers with up to 8 GB of memory. Note that more than 1 GB requires a 64-bit Java runtime.
  • Advanced settings:
    • Option for disabling the text preview. This is useful for searching the contents of very large text files;
    • New entry AllowIndexRenaming for hiding the “Rename Index” context menu entry in the Search Scope pane.
Changes:
  • The comments in the DocFetcher.bat file were printed in the command prompt.
Bugfixes:
  • Crashes:
    • During startup saying “invalid sash weights”;
    • On certain CHM files;
    • On RTF files containing images;
    • IndexOutOfBoundsException;
    • NullPointerException during indexing;
    • When trying to rename a folder beneath an index (i.e. a top-level folder). Now the renaming operation is only enabled for indexes;
    • Under certain circumstances when clicking on the buttons in the toolbar above the preview pane.
  • Fixed Outlook PST indexing issues.
  • Directory paths as long as or longer than 260 characters were incorrectly identified as NTFS junctions, causing some directories to be ignored during indexing.

@stisev: I really don't think feature bounties like what the qBitTorrent dev requested are harmful. As open source / freeware developers rarely see donations, I'd rather see requests like these than adware/bundleware.

stisev on 2017-01-03 10:32

Such garbage software. The author is about the biggest asshole I have ever met in the development world. Seriously, if you think this is an opinion go read the issues forum. as ransom for portable mode, he's demanding people give him money. You really can't make this shit up.

I gave qbittorrent an honest try. I can't get magnet links to associate with the portable version anymore. I even tried running it in Sandboxie and manually installing a reg entry.

This app should be reported and removed from PF as it constantly spreads its files all over my computer after magnet links are associated.
IT. IS. NOT. PORTABLE. and based on what the way the dev is screaming at its users, it's becoming donation-ware.

I encourage you all to petition mods to remove this app.

I think that this program can be potentially dangerous- it has an explicit Facebook link in the tool-bar, which, if hit by mistake, will open Facebook and thus infect the system- unfortunately not many users know what is "datr" and what it is doing.
I have no respect for developers who have Facebook pages and promote them. Twitter is fine but Facebook was never, is not and will never be fine.

SearchMyFiles v2.78 Updated

SearchMyFiles is a powerful alternative to the standard Windows search. It allows you to easily find files by wildcard, last modified/created/last accessed time, file attributes, content (text or binary search), and file size. The program is non-indexing, meaning it searches the drive directly, which is often slower but more accurate.

Can also be used to detect duplicate files via the "Search Mode" drop-down box.

I did some recent testing on renamer tools and this and Advanced Renamer turned out to be the most flexible, especially when it came to command-line support. I looked into the undo feature of AR, but I thought it undid changes only on an error. Guess I was wrong about that. Will look into that again. Anyway, I mostly use the Bulk Rename Utility command-line now. Many of the other renamers have become outdated.

The database is encrypted using the AES algorithm and the program includes a strong automatic password generator, expire dates, customized icons and categories, and much more.

Note that available plug-ins may not be portable.

Note: KeePass Classic is also available with fewer features, but does not require DotNet. See edition comparison.

@Mixture: confirmed. I just tested with the Twofish plugin. It just saves a DLL file rather than settings but other plugins likely have additional options that would not be saved locally. I'll add a note to the entry.

@webfork:

Don't forget to edit also KeePass Classic entry.

Mixture on 2017-01-09 18:36

Great! Now that a new and native encryption algorithm, ChaCha20, and a new password hash, Argon2, has been added in version 2.35, I changed my database settings to include the new high security features. Now, if only someone will add more native high security features to KeePass 2.xx.

Hello and thank you for your feedback.
- not available
The download server was offline for serveral time. The server is again online since yesterday.
I'm sorry for that.

- the green ticks
The green ticks are only an indicator. They do not have any function right now.
If you can not save a profile, in general this means something isn't set or the source directory is identical to the destination directory.

These settings are at least mandatory to get a working profile:
- Profile type Express
- Source and destination directory set
- The profile name

If you still have the green ticks, please open the updater (menu ? or F1) and download the updated version.
There are also some litte less important tweaks in the new version which is coming this evening (german time UTC+1 ~8 PM).
The ticks have been removed for the moment because they are not working correctly.

I am really sorry for this problems. I'll do my best to get all this working. For the moment the version coming this evening works fine.
I'll investigate the timestamp problem too before releasing the update this evening.

All feedback is welcome and I'll always read everything to make you a good piece of software =)

  • Suggested by deathcubek

Simple x264/x265 Launcher is a lightweight front-end for the x264 H.264/AVC as well as the x265 H.265/HEVC encoder, based on the Qt toolkit. It uses the 64-Bit version of x264 with the 32-Bit version of Avisynth. That lets you use 32-Bit Avisynth plug-ins (e.g. DGDecodeNV) and still benefit from the speed improvements of 64-Bit x264. Optionally you can also use 64-Bit Avisynth, which is still considered experimental, if desired, as well as x264's built-in LAVF/FFMS input.

Includes full batch encoding support for running several encoding jobs in parallel.

I've been using Uniform Server for a few years now and I really like it. With windows 7 there does seem to be an issue with stopping and starting the services for some reason. You can get around it by uninstalling the services through the right-click option on the tray menu icon but it won't work through the apanel web interface.
Even with that problem I am still too hooked on Uniform Server to even try anything else.

FileOptimizer v9.50 Updated

billon on 10 Jan 2017
  • 109MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Jan 2017
  • 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 long list of 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.

Carbonize on 2008-10-13 12:50

@GBJ - Thats because an RTF file (Rich Text Format) is a word processor document such as produced by Word, Wordpad etc and this program is a text editor.

@Exo - Why the hell would you want to open more than a hundred text files at a time let alone over a thousand?

Anyway just tried this and it has some bugs in rendering such as the edge of letters being cut off by the next letter and some characters being coloured wrongly until you highlight them at which point they change to the correct colour.

smaragdus on 2014-09-05 01:28

The latest version of PlainEdit.NET is 1.4.2.0 and in fact it supports Unicode- go to 'Extras'-'Settings'-'Editor'-'File Format'- then choose 'UTF-8' for example.

Great app. Been using this for awhile and I haven't experienced any of the problems indicated here. Very light on resources even with over 250 entries. No problem with drag and drop and the menu disappears normally if no menu item is selected just by clicking outside the interface. True, it can't launch apps with admin rights, but it's not a big issue on Vista with UAC disabled or going to the app folder and launching directly using RAA.

Nice player, but "Terms of Use" (see bottom of home page) give company right to upload information about your computer.

FireRabbit on 2016-08-05 01:53

v7.1 is a huge improvement over 7.0 I'd recommend trying it out now, and most importantly going over to the EPIM support forums and joining in in the suggestion thread even if you just use the free version causally every voice is counting. If there is enough demand we may be able to get the attachment system and contact systems back to a more usable state.

FireRabbit on 2016-12-14 18:24

General warning:
Databases used with 7.2 are not compatible with v7.13 or earlier.

As the free version is mostly used around here I doubt this next warning is really needed but just in case. V7.2 shipped with a bug in the networking system that makes it impossible to use the business edition networking feature with user accounts. At the time it is strongly advised to avoid updating to version 7.2 if you use the business/network edition.

A wizard can categorize files based on metadata (EXIF or IPTC tags).

While the editor program (SunlitGreen Photo Editor) is separate from the batch program, it's included in the application folder or can be launched from within BatchBlitz.

smaragdus: Thanks for the info but I think this topic is better served in the forums. Could you move it from here and over at the SunlitGreen Photo Editor entry?

It should be mentioned that the screenshot shows the unreleased Pro-version. The actual program does NOT support layers!

@zorro: that's accurate - I'll try to get the screenshot updated soon.

A few disjointed comments...
1. The version is up to 2.8
2. The portable option has been reinstated.
3. I just wanted to snip unwanted sections; this did it simply and intuitively.
I find "more advanced" editors get confusing.
4. MBAM finds a PUP in the file. Seems like a false positive to me (I added an exclusion)
