TheSage is now at 6.10.1816. Since your download link points to that version via TheSage home page you might as well update the entry here to reflect the current version number.

I might have paid for the advanced options if there was some indication as to what they are!!

I for the latest version, 7.15.2672, on SnapFiles and downloaded it. However, upon unzipping it and running the main app, my system immediately treat the theSage.exe as malware and erased it. I securely wiped the ZIP file, downloaded it again and extracted it, only to see Bandizip say "Access is denied(5)" the main app was erased again. I'm glad I have version 6.10.1816 on my desktop and version 7.8.2644 on my portable drive. Neither give me any problems.

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.

Jan 21 2017 Saturday: Link on EssentialPIM site is to 7.21 not 7.22. Pro link is 7.22, maybe free version will be updated Monday.

Webfork is correct, there is a portable version. Worked fine for me on XP. I also like the knockoff of it called Pinta available for Linux. It's not full-featured yet, but it certainly works.
Off-topicP If you really want portable, put your favorite version of Linux including whatever programs you want on a USB stick and you've got an entire portable OS!

@Midas
You might like to re-check EagleGet's portable status. I had an email conversation with the devs a few versions ago about writing to the registry etc., and as far as I can tell they have acted upon it. On my system, a registry search for "eagle" produces no hits, regardless of the status of auto-update check in EagleGet|Configurations. Older versions also put the file EagleGet.sys in the System32 folder, but that behaviour also seems to have been corrected.
Hope this helps.

SRWare Iron v57.0.3000.0 Updated

billon on 28 Mar 2017
  • 160MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 27 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by freakazoid

SRWare Iron is a privacy-enhanced web browser based on Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome. By default, Iron sends out less information as compared to Chrome (e.g., creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions), making it potentially more privacy friendly and secure in operation.

Iron supports both official and unofficial themes and some extensions from Chrome. Additionally, to enable blocking ad servers, a 'adblock.ini' is present in the program folder, and Opera's 'urlfilter.ini' can easily be converted to Iron's accepted format by following these instructions (or see comments below).

Note: It is recommended you change the homepage. The Iron default homepage may contain ads or links to fake adware-containing downloads.

  • Iron Portable (adds password portabilization, path portabilization, registry cleanup and Java support)
  • X-Iron (idem)

version 45: No flash support whatsoever. It also disables all but a two plugins. I understand this is a security issue, however, if you do need Flash, this is not the browser for you. You cannot add Flash support to version 45 of Iron. The former plug-ins do not work, and the latest download which would be supported in Iron contains malware, checked by over 40 different engines and cannot be installed if you have ANY anti-malware engine running. If you don't, be aware you're installing malware. If you have no need for Flash or most other browser plug-ins, feel free, you'll be secure (but missing quite a bit of content.)

Alternatives: Do not update to 45. Install 43, which still supports the (old) flash players (be they however insecure.)
Chrome itself has a built in alternative to Flash in the latest version. Maybe someone will figure out how to "port" this to Iron without doing a bunch of stuff in file explorers etc.
Note: trying to install the latest Adobe Flash for Firefox crashed my XP system, XP is basically no longer supported with version 19. the latest update to Flash 18 works, however.
I have Flash disabled on all but two sites which use the older version just fine.

Just noting that Iron Portable and SRWare Iron Portable, as well as GoogleChromePortable and X-Chromium, create these registry keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions

HKU\*\Software\Google
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions

Also note that the HKLM key is hidden in regedit. I can see it being created using Regshot and get to it and delete it with an alternate registry editor. I don't know how the key is protected. (Any info appreciated.)

The only Chromium browser that doesn't create these keys is Chromium Portable (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2169).

They also create the following folders/files:

C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data

How do you measure sound quality?

Midas on 2016-10-18 08:46

It's highly subjective (see subbject of psychoacoustics) but there are objective measures that can be taken to achieve it. I still remember when the PC platform was absolutely lousy soundwise -- it has now come a long way and in terms of digital audio it is bit perfect, if you choose the right tools. EAC or CueTools for ripping and a player like foobar2000 or XMPlay (or Resonic, for that matter) for playback are sound (pun intended) starting points...

Just realized new version supports dsd in wavpack: "Support for high-resolution DSD audio files compressed with WavPack, i.e. compressed DSF/DFF in .wv files. Note that while DSD-in-WV saves quite a bit of space (in our tests 35-50%) it also takes a bit longer to decode (e.g. to prepare the waveform.)"

Thanks Guido76. It's still labelled as 8.0.5 but it's a new version and working here too

Emka on 2017-03-04 13:44

It doesn't display some German special characters correctly (e.g. ß), and more importantly, it shows a "buy the pro version" nagscreen upon exit and opens the product homepage in the system's standard browser.

Guido76 on 2017-03-04 14:30

Emka, you're right. Some problems with the French language too. And a very annoying nag-screen, and automatic launch of the browser. Too bad!
I will try to see this with the author, but I suppose that is part of his strategy to force the sale of the Pro version, so there is only little chance to make him change his mind!

A lot of people here trying to delete multiples of the same image - I just wanted to give a shout out to Dup Detector, which is a great piece of software that does exactly that.

Dup Detector doesn't just do file-size/checksum analysis, it actually analyzes the images to find similarities. E.g. one could be black & white and the other can be color, or one can be watermarked, or one could be taken 2 seconds later because someone blinked & it'll find both and display them to you and ask which one you want to delete or if you want to keep both. You can choose how strict it is in its matching algorithm - 100% mach, 95% match etc.

You can even have it set up to automatically select which one to delete based on rules - e.g. the smaller one. Then you just approve the selection by hitting the space bar, or you can just let it do its thing automatically, or you can go full-manual mode and click the image you want to delete. Super fast way to delete duplicates and easy to use. I've used it professionally to manage large image catalogs that had a lot of duplicates of different sizes.

Unfortunately, it's not portable.

The latest version I have is 3.3.02 from July 8, 2011. You can get an earlier version from rareware.

FileOptimizer v9.70 Updated

  • 109MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 Mar 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.

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

The download contains the "todolist.exe.xp.manifest" file, and renaming that to "todolist.exe.manifest" works

@IanFromBarrie

Thanks for that info. I was wondering why it wasn't working with XP. Renaming todolist.exe.xp.manifest to todolist.exe.manifest worked.

  • Released on 24 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by Ehtyar

Screenshot Captor (SC) is a tool for grabbing, manipulating, annotating, and sharing screenshots. The program is optimized for taking lots of screenshots with minimal intervention and makes it easy to add and edit callout arrows and text boxes. Allows automatic or on-demand uploading to image hosting services or sending by email. Can grab images from multiple sources including webcams and scanners, including lots of scanner acquisition tools and image correction. Supports multiple monitors, is able to capture Windows 7/8 partial transparency effects, and has a powerful scrolling capture tool.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder.
Note: ColorCop's version included with SC is no longer natively portable -- you'll have to revert to v5.3 if you use the color picker.
Stealth: ? No. Creates HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RtColorPicker registry key, if you use the color picker included.
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Registerware for personal use; a license key must be obtained from DonationCoder (either by donating or by registering in their forums for free) to remove the nag message.
How to extract:
  1. Download the portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Rename the file ConfigDir_Default.ini to ConfigDir.ini
  3. Launch ScreenshotCaptor.exe

  • [Feature] You can now use %APPDRIVE% and other replacement fields when specifying screenshot folder in options.

Has anyone tested recently if SC portability shortcomings are still extant?

@Midas I only tried the screenshot feature, and it did not create HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RtColorPicker or any other registry entry.

@ripu: thanks for reporting.
