Angry IP Scanner v2.21

billon on 27 Sep 2018
  • 108KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Apr 2004
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Angry IP Scanner is a fast IP scanner that can ping a range of IP addresses to check if they are alive, then optionally resolve hostnames, scan ports, etc. The program is useful for network administrators to monitor and manage their networks.

Note: Current versions of this program require Java. Until this is tested as portable, we are linking to the previous non-Java version.

Category:
System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Windows registry. But given the nature of the application, I think it can be accepted as portable. An option is provided to delete registry entries upon user's request.
License: GNU GPLv2
How to extract: Download IPscan221.EXE to a folder of your choice and launch.

@Craunch

One more reason to use the older legacy version instead, which, afaik, does not need Java.

Craunch: just added a note to the entry.

As illustrated in the forum http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=78597
AdvancedIPscanner is NOT portable.

Besides, the package contains no less than 45 distinct files, including umpteen dll's, for a bloated total of 8.8MB, versus AngryIPscanner single 108KB *.exe.

Take you pick...;-)

FastStone Capture v5.3

billon on 12 Nov 2016
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Feb 2007
  • Suggested by Fluffy

FastStone Capture is a powerful, flexible and intuitive screen-capture utility. It allows you to capture anything on the screen including windows, objects, full screen, rectangle regions, freehand-selected regions and scrolling windows/web pages. It has innovative features such as a floating Capture Panel, hotkeys, resizing, cropping, text annotation, printing, e-mailing, screen magnifier and many more.

Reported to function in Windows 7 and in Linux under WINE.

Note: FastStone Capture went payware starting from v5.4 so I have made the last freeware version available (v5.3) for direct download as the license agreement does not prohibit redistribution.

@jimdorey: I'm a little confused why we had a listing that this works with Win10 -- it really doesn't. When this version of the program stopped being developed, Win7 wasn't even out yet. Anyway, I recommend trying another software package for that OS. I've updated the entry.

@jimdorey: v5.3 works fine on my win 10 x64 using a 1080p screen resolution. Maybe you're using a high DPI screen/4k monitor, and only the last version (8.4, payware, but worth every penny) works fine in that case.

Allelluia !
Imagine has Risen from Limbo, after a mere five years in hibernation...;-)

Complete Changelog history: (2003-2017)

Word to the wise:
Backup your current "imagine.ini" before merrily installing the new version...

While reaching for the changelog just now: "This site is now out of traffic. Please visit later." :(

__philippe on 2017-08-09 14:11

Imagine falling prey to its born-again success, I suspect ?
Its Byus.Net host is enforcing traffic choking, temporarily, one would hope...:-(

PS
To the lucky dames/fellows who grabbed the new distro before this recent server hiccup :
a full changelog is also included as a "whatsnew.txt" in Imagine_1.1.0_Unicode.zip.

Autoruns v13.96 Updated

billon on 29 Jun 2019
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Jun 2019
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Autoruns shows programs that run during system bootup or login, as well as entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Alternatively, Autoruns Portable is stealth and will only show the EULA once.

I'll be damned ! Sysinternals' utilities changelogs ersatz have not quite vanished, after all,
but are definitely (deliberately?) well hidden from sight:

Though v. 13.93 is available here, at Portable Freeware, the MS site only has v. 13.91 . Is this version again being recalled by MS?

LastActivityView v1.26

The new "Sleep" activity indicators ("Sleep/Resumed from sleep") display correctly under Win7.

Sadly, the Sleep indicators do not show at all under WinXP...:-(
