1 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Create folder structure or path on: April 27, 2009, 03:28:56 PM
Thanks for the suggestion!

This, however, is not what I want to achieve.  I found this free sw to do what I think you suggest to do with xplorer2: TreeCopy

But both of these two programs will create a whole tree of branches, when I only want one single branch!

If I want the branch \Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\ (like in my first post) I would have to copy the 'Documents and Settings' level.  That would give me a copy that looks something like this:

 | temp
     | Documents and Settings
         |  Administrator
              |  Everything below here
         |  All Users
              |  Application Data             
                  |  Everything below here
              |  Desktop
                  |  Everything below here
              |  Documents
                  |  My Pictures
              |  Favorites
                  |  Everything below here
              |  Start Menu
                  |  Everything below here
         |  Default User
              |  Everything below here
         |  User1
              |  Everything below here
         |  User2
              |  Everything below here

When all I really want is this:
 | temp
     | Documents and Settings
         |  All Users
              |  Documents
                  |  My Pictures

Sure, I could use this method to create the complete empty structure, then copy my file to the desired destination, and finally use the convenient little DelEmpty-app by Skrommel.  But that's kind of an uggly solution...

So, suggestions please..?  huh  Is there maybe an easy way to do this already?

Otherwise, I'm thinking a program that adds options to the context menu in Windows Explorer.  When right-clicking a folder, the context menu would offer "Copy folder path" (implies from root to here), and when right clicking another folder, the menu would offer "Paste folder path" if one is present in the clipboard. 
If you do not want the complete path from the root, you could manually copy just a selection of it from the Address-bar, which places it in the clipboard, and thus makes it possible to paste with "Paste folder path".

Now, that'd be great!  cheesy


2 Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Create folder structure or path on: April 22, 2009, 05:24:06 AM
I would like to be able to create a 'copy' of a path. 

For example, let's say I have a file in this folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\

I would like to copy this file to D:\temp so that the path becomes like this:
D:\temp\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\

Now, I would have to go to D:\temp, create the first folder Documents and Settings, then enter that folder to create the next All Users folder, and so on, before I can copy my file to that location.

If possible, I'd like a right click option in Windows Explorer to select 'Copy with path' and then 'Paste and create path'.

I hope I have managed to explain myself?

Here's a few:

When I inserted a (fried, as it turned out) USB memory stick.  Probably made in China, eh?

I started to move a file a couple of years ago.  I suppose it's still on the move: almost 3 million minutes is more than 5 years, isn't it?

Don't remember what file I wanted to play, but it couldn't have been a good one...

And finally, the new and all-improved Paint Shop Pro X as a new Corel product:

I really appreciate the option to not have them asking this anymore!  huh


4 Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: IdleMute - Tray utility to mute speaker when you are away from the PC! on: April 28, 2006, 03:42:00 AM

Hmpfr!  Insulted!  Wink

I have 256MB of RAM!  Ha!

Seriously, though, it is my work computer, where I normally use only Office apps.  I'd have a hard time motivating my IT support I need more power...

At home, where I have a more up to date system, there is no noticable flickering.  Still, the method proposed above feels...  I don't know... Optimized? cheesy

Doing that update even when it's not necessary, just because it makes no noticable difference is the first step towards bloating, don't you think?  I was around in the middle of the 80's and the first home computers.  They could run incredible games and apps on just a couple of MHz of 8-bit processing, using a few kb of memory!  Then you really had to optimize the usage of the limited available resources!  Today, you need 512 mb of memory to feel comfortable...

Anyways, this little comment is - of course - in no way meant as criticism towards Skrommel, who makes a fantastic job with all these little amazing gadgets!  After all, we are working with a 'simple' scripting tool that probably isn't that focused on optimization in the first place.  Or is it?

Many thanks to Skrommel for his work and inspiration to fiddle around with this myself!

On my Win2000, the tray icon flickers irregularly.  Maybe because it is an old PIII 700MHz office machine..?  undecided

Anyways, I made some modifications to stop this:

[copy or print]
;somewhere in the beginning, where other variables are initialized
currentIcon := 0

;in the CHECKMUTE-routine
If mute=On
  If currentIcon <> 5
    currentIcon := 5
  If (active="1" And enabled="1" And running="0")
    If currentIcon <> 3
      currentIcon := 3
    If currentIcon <> 4
      currentIcon := 4

This only replaces the icon when it actually changes, eliminating the flickering.

Maybe this is completelly unnecessary on all the Tera-Hz super mega machines out there, but it works for me... smiley

Ok, I'll read up on that and get started on my way to AHK stardom!  Cool

Hey, great!  Works like a charm!  cheesy Thanks a bunch!

I don't know how the file sorting works in XP, though.  On my Win2000, if 'Sort by date' is set, it lists the files like this:
1 - Notepad
10 - Calc
11 - Word
2 - Excel
3 - Outlook
...and so on.  Therefore, I added the following lines:

[copy or print]
    If sortbydate=1
->    If counter<10
->      FileCreateShortcut,%Target%,%recentmenu%\0%counter% - %A_LoopField%,%Dir%,%Args%,%Description%,%Icon%,,%IconNumber%,%RunState%
->    Else
        FileCreateShortcut,%Target%,%recentmenu%\%counter% - %A_LoopField%,%Dir%,%Args%,%Description%,%Icon%,,%IconNumber%,%RunState%

I wonder, how do you compile your code?  The Ahk2Exe application only supports one icon file, but you have two icons in your about-box!

Ahh, nice to find the correct source!

Doesn't make it work, though...  Sad

The contents of my registry here at home is pretty much the same as what I posted above.

I inserted a msgbox inside the loop in the GETPROGRAMS routine, right before the IfInString,A_LoopRegName,%path% -line, to get a readout of the important variables.

My line goes like this:
msgbox, %path%`n %program%`n %pid%`n %A_LoopRegName%

The first box says:
@C:\Program files\MultiMedia\iTunes\iTunes.Resources\iTunesRegistry.dll,-16

The next box goes the same, except the last line is:
@C:\Program files\Shared files\Ahead\lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll,-11111

And so on...  (The A_LoopRegName isn't exactly taken from my previous post, since I appearently have different 'whatever-it-is' here than in my office computer.)  There are a lot of entries in this key, more than three full screens.  The loop never finds a match, and therefore the 'programs' variable never gets any contents.

What does your regstry hold in this particular key?  And howcome there is a difference???

Hang on, I just checked the registry of an XP machine.  And there they are, lots of 'path-like' entries right after all the @-entries.  These just don't exist in my Win 2000 machines...

Ok, so it's an XP feature that is not present in Win 2000.  But what does this check actually do?  And could it be found elsewhere in the registry, if necessary?

Sorry for asking supposedly silly questions, but the hour is too late to try and figure out the purpose of the code...  undecided

Thanks for taking the time to look at this!

Well this sounded really good, but somehow it does not work for me...  Sad

Since the sourcecode is not available as with all the other neat tools, I used Exe2Ahk to try to make sense of whats going on, or not.  From what I can find in the de-compiled code, the GETPROGRAMS loop tries to match the path of all current windows to a list held in the registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache
In my registry, that key holds something like this:
[copy or print]
(Default)                               REG_SZ            (value not set)
@browselc.dll,-13137                    REG_SZ            &Address
@browselc.dll,-13138                    REG_SZ            &Links
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9902        REG_SZ            Movie Clip
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9903        REG_SZ            AIFF Format Sound
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9904        REG_SZ            AU Format Sound
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9905        REG_SZ            Video Clip
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9907        REG_SZ            MIDI Sequence
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9909        REG_SZ            Windows Media Audio/Video file
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9910        REG_SZ            Windows Media Audio/Video playlist
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9911        REG_SZ            Windows Media Audio shortcut
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9915        REG_SZ            Windows Media Player Skin File
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9920        REG_SZ            Windows Media Player Download Package
@C:\WINNT\inf\unregmp2.exe,-9924        REG_SZ            Windows Media Library
@C:\WINNT\System32\cdfview.dll,-4610    REG_SZ            Channel File
@C:\WINNT\System32\msi.dll,-34          REG_SZ            Windows Installer Package

@C:\WINNT\system32\shell32.dll,-9216    REG_SZ            My Computer
@C:\WINNT\system32\shell32.dll,-9217    REG_SZ            My Network Places
@C:\WINNT\system32\shell32.dll,-9227    REG_SZ            My Documents
@inetcplc.dll,-4731                     REG_SZ            Always expand ALT text for images
@inetcplc.dll,-4732                     REG_SZ            Move system caret with focus/selection changes
@inetcplc.dll,-4735                     REG_SZ            Use smooth scrolling
@inetcplc.dll,-4736                     REG_SZ            Enable offline items to be synchronized on a schedule
This goes on for quite a bit, making a long list.  There are no references to file paths at all in this key?!?!

So, is the Exe2Ahk wrong in de-compiling the code, or is my registry different from every body elses..?  I'm running an english Win2000.

I would be greatful for any thoughts on this matter... 

And it would be really great if the correct source code could be published at  Thmbsup
