part 2 blog explains how to write Store licensing check code

Deskrule is a generic windows desktop search engine that can query for hundreds of windows properties and file attributes. One of them is geolocation data stored in photos you shoot with your GPS enabled mobile phone. Searching for particular latitude and longitude by number is awkward to say the least

I have added a map helper to deskrule that makes this process much easier. Now to find a photo by location all you need is to open a (google) map and point it to your desired location. Then deskrule will find all your pictures that were shot there, e.g. in New York or even in Central park.

for more information please see here

if any of you are photographers that travel a lot I'd love to hear your feedback

I joined the "project centennial" list but never managed to get any decent information out of them. It's not just converting (wrapping) the software to be included in the store, there are all sorts of other things, e.g. licensing, that will probably need to change completely for existing shareware programs

btw the later 7z.dll versions include RAR5 support so you shouldn't need to bundle unrar.dll

you wait ages for a bus to come then two come along simultaneously

I wish I saw your work one year earlier so I wouldn't have to waste my time on my partial solution :)

a little update, now this plugin works for windows XP.SP2+ too but only within xplorer2.
You can read all about the coding mini-adventure here :)

may I recommend DeskRule, now with its unique desktop detective mode? :)
see for the latest beta
it uses the windows search index so it can do the usual PDF/DOC easy

the end user running windows 7 or later will see many installers that appear untrusted, so he will probably just not install your program. It is dead serious

most people are not aware that there is a big shake-down of SHA1 code signing certificates coming first thing in 2016. If you sell or distribute digitally signed software you must be aware of the changes and get prepared. For more information see here

please spread the word!
merry christmas

PS. i see there was a brief discussion about this but it affects everybody not just mouser

the pic looks allright
funny you brought up 2xExplorer, I was using it today trying to troubleshoot a problem with windows 10 copy progress bars

I fixed a few things with explorer columns and it now also registers better for windows 8/10. If you want to try the latest 1008 beta here's the direct download link (32/64 bit)

here's something that should interest people who use archives a lot, it extends the zipfolder principle built in windows to other popular formats (as supported by 7zip). The namespace/shell extension works for windows explorer and all compatible file managers: (freeware)

please feel free to spread the word :)

(to anyone interested)
this deskrule search engine is now a finished product. If anyone here likes it please use the social buttons at the bottom of the website to spread the word, thanks!

here's an updated version that offers a much simpler search mode for everyday use (when you don't need all the advanced boolean algebra and parameters). For information and downloading click here

Hi Stoic and thanks for testing

internally the program is doing tons of self-checks, and some of them obviously failed, that's why you get the message at the end about the assertion errors. Many of them are not a big deal, but if you want me to check, just open the file, and email it to me.

all these checks make running much slower than it should be, so if you find the speed good as it is, you will be pleasantly impressed in the future!

to clear a previous filter, press CTRL+A to select all the rules, then DEL. You will find more useful tips in the help file (press F1 while the program is running)

last but not least, as I am not monitoring this thread regularly, please send me an email if you need assistance with something or other feedback. You will find the email link in ABOUT dialog!

thanks again

thanks for the feedback everybody. I understand that the GUI as it is is very "geeky" but that's just testing the underlying search engine. In the final version there will be another search mode (probably simple/advanced tab somewhere) that will be more easy to operate (minus the flexibility of course)

I use plimus/fastspring
People that use paypal go for e-junkie, but I'm not sure if it does VAT properly

I am using the scheme already for crack tracker
pipe delimited is functional and makes for shorter keys that can be emailed

for the key/keygen part i believe i have it pretty much sorted out, see here:

not that it will stop piracy either, but it will kill all keygens, leaving just the patches :)

crack tracker cannot stop cracks, even if you eliminate all the existing ones, new ones will come to replace them, it is a constant battle

as to how sales will be affected once you make it harder for people to find warez, it is debatable. Obviously I believe that legitimate sales will increase, as people really wanting the software will have no other option. But if you are on a really crowded market they may just go to your easy to crack competitor...

I believe you can already track other things like music and video, choosing a relevant keyword. Most of the search engines CT uses are generic and should find non-software downloads, probably illegal!

perhaps you misunderstood, crack tracker is not a search engine, it looks for cracks to your software. By default not all internal search engines are enabled too, so use View > Engines menu to tick them all active
