1  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / possible to re-attach 'options' to Alt-O? on: February 20, 2014, 10:16:57 AM
I see in the forum that Alt-O got unwired from the 'options' panel due to an external conflict.  I know how to add hotkeys, but don't know how to tell it to open the farr options panel.  Is it possible?

Thanks-
2  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / lost control panel items in top results on: February 19, 2014, 07:14:10 AM
Hello-

Items in the control panel ("Add or Remove Programs" and the like) used to come up as I typed, but somewhere along the line they stopped. ;(

Under 'options' and aliases I have 'cpanel' checked, and I do see the control panel items when I type 'cpanel' (and hit 'Enter'), but they used to come up directly (as I was typing 'add or rem....').

After opening the file cpanel.alias I created a shortcut called 'AddOrRemovePrograms' and pointed it to %windir%\system32\control.exe with all the params copied from cpanel.alias.  If I put the shortcut in one of my folders, *that* works, but maybe a better way?

Thanks for any help.  Running Win XP Pro if that makes a diff.

Thanks a million for all the contribs!!  Got File Hamster taking snapshots all day, and easy to restore earlier versions.

Thanks all around!

Perfect!  So sorry I didn't find it on my own Mouser.

Stay on top!
5  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / one click "to clipboard" on popup choice dialog? on: August 07, 2013, 10:32:03 PM
Somewhere in an update I lost a button on the "Popup Choice Dialog" that used to copy the image to the clipboard.  Now I have a button that says "To clipboard:" that opens a second set of buttons where I select Image, Path, or File.

It's small, but is there a way to get the single button back?  Or have "To clipboard" copy the image to the clipboard, without requiring the second click on the second set of buttons?

Many apologies if I've missed this, or caused it inadvertently.

Thanks a million for the great app!!

It's my "front burner" folder, just a random collection of junk I"m working on in some capacity.  Documents, code, pics, some exe's, etc..  The files do change, so I'm looking for a backup/archiving app that takes and save snapshots so I can restore a file back to what it looked like, say, 3 days ago.  Or maybe restore another file that's been deleted.

Sorry if it's not making sense.  I know there's backup utilities out there, I just haven't had any experience with them and don't know of one that would save periodically, or whenever files change, without intervention.

Thanks!
7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / recommend an app to snapshot & restore a folder? (like version control?) on: August 07, 2013, 07:03:03 AM
Hey All-

Can anyone recommend a lightweight app that can watch one of my folders for changes to the files or sub folders and give me a restore/undo so I can backup to a previous version(s)?  Not sure what to call it, and hoping for something minimal (little to no learning curve).  I thought of writing a script to just snapshot periodically with WinZip or 7Z, but figured there's probably something a little more integrated out there.

Thanks for any suggests-

Sorry I couldn't find it.  Thank you for the fix!
9  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / farr forgetting last window position on: July 23, 2012, 10:12:46 AM
Out of the blue, farr no longer remembering it's last position.  The ini has the correct coordinates in MainLeft and MainTop (which is up at the top of the screen), but FARR keeps opening in the middle of the screen (even after I move it to the top where I want it).

Thanks for any help.  Apologies if this is in the options, or the forum, but I couldn't find it in either place.

10  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: help debugging startup, loss of czb package "tm" (timer) on: February 28, 2012, 08:46:28 AM
Solved.  Thank a ton Mouser.  There were are rack of variables in there for Timer.  I deleted them all, exited, reloaded, and have no error messages and the timer is working again.  Bummer of a time sink, but so happy to be back on the bus!

Peace!
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: help debugging startup, loss of czb package "tm" (timer) on: February 24, 2012, 08:40:30 AM
Yes, still getting the error.  I did find the UserVars section, but nothing in there related to Timer.  This is the only line:

UserVars=[Common]>n>//put user defined variables here>n>Var=Value
12  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: help debugging startup, loss of czb package "tm" (timer) on: February 22, 2012, 08:42:49 AM
No luck yet, but thankful for the suggestions.  I restored an older FARR.ini, and hunted for (but couldn't find) user variables associated with Timer (at the bottom of FARR.ini).
13  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / help debugging startup, loss of czb package "tm" (timer) on: February 21, 2012, 10:06:55 AM
FARR did some updates yesterday, I am now running v 2.104.02, but when FARR launches I get an error "while loading C:\Program Files" (error shown below).  Most of FARR seems to be running, but I have lost the timer feature.  When I "Click to examine and configure plugins", the "CZB Pack" does not show up in that first list, but when I click "Check for plugin updates", it shows CZB_Pack v.0.24 and says it is installed and up to date.  I downloaded the CZB_Pack and unzipped it into the plugin folder, but no affect on the startup or loss of "tm".

I did find "pluginlog.txt" and there's an "Error initializing plugin do_init function" for FarrFox that's been logging regularly since August of 2011, but FARRFox is working.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.  Also interested in disabling the automatic updates.

14  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: possible to miminize "New Screenshot" window? on: August 19, 2010, 07:21:58 PM
Yes, just the regular minimize (to the task bar, then restore brings it back to work on as with other apps).

For the window to go away completely, I just close it or hit <esc>.
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: possible to miminize "New Screenshot" window? on: August 19, 2010, 03:08:54 PM
Yes, the post-capture dialog.  I like it, and sometimes wish I could minimize it but the minimize icon is greyed out.
16  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / possible to miminize "New Screenshot" window? on: August 19, 2010, 12:36:57 PM
Is there a way to minimize the window that says, "You have captured a new screenshot, what now?" (the minimize icon is greyed up in the title bar).

If not, any chance that could be allowed in the future?

Thanks for any help. 
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: how to remove (or move) "older" folder? on: July 11, 2010, 09:29:55 PM
Bomb!  Thanks a lot Mouser!
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / how to remove (or move) "older" folder? on: July 11, 2010, 06:27:00 PM
If I leave SCC open too long, it creates a folder named "OLDER" on my desktop (my preferred location for file saves).

Is there a way to get it to not do this?

I do not mind loosing anything it would ever save it there.

Thanks for any help-
19  DonationCoder.com Software / DcUpdater / Re: Crash on XP Pro SP3 on: June 04, 2010, 06:09:43 AM
I can run it manually without error, but I get the same "Application Error" popup every morning from when it runs overnight.  My DC apps are all in pretty good shape, so uninstalling the updater for a while.
20  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: New FARR Plugin: FCalc on: March 15, 2010, 07:24:38 AM
I want to use '='  to open fcalc so I entered this to "Regular Expression (custom override)":
^=(.*)$|^=$

It opens fcalc just fine, but when I hit enter fcalc disappears and the command line gets replaced with 'fc'.  So I tried using this regex instead:

^=(.*)$|^=$|^fc (.*)$|^fc$
... which keeps fcalc opened, but it stops functioning (or at least stops reacting to me entering more expressions).

Thanks for any suggests-
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: can't change Save As default file type on: February 11, 2010, 02:01:44 PM
That would solve it Mouser, thanks for the help!

I take it the setting I changed is for the internal format, not for the file save?

You're The Bomb Mouser.  I use FARR dozens of times per day and every time I am just a little happier than I was right before I launched it! Wink
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / can't change Save As default file type on: February 11, 2010, 01:54:04 PM
I'm looking for a way to change the default file type used in the "Save As" dialog.

In the Screenshot Captor Options, under "Image File Format" I set the default image file format to JPG.  But when I capture an image and select "Save Image As", the dialog that says "Save Copy of Image As..." is always set to BMP.

Thanks for any help.  Sorry I couldn't find it on my own.

23  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: New C# FARR Plugin: FARRGoogleSuggest on: October 27, 2009, 12:26:44 PM
Not sure if this is the place to post this, but I use FARRGoogleSuggest all the time and sometimes wish I could hotkey into "feeling lucky".  i.e., I'm typing into FARR, looking at the google suggest results, and just want to go straight to one of the first google results (not go to google to see the results, and then go to the first list).  Maybe something like Alt-F1, Alt-F2, etc.?

Does anyone know a way to achieve something like this?

Thanks for any suggestions.

And thanks for the awesome plug-in!
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / open gmail inbox/compose in Chrome (non default browser) on: August 27, 2009, 12:35:53 PM
I'm looking for a way to open Chrome from FARR if it's not already open (or bring it to the foreground if it is already open), and have it point to my gmail inbox (or gmail compose).  My default browser is not Chrome (it's FireFox).

Any help/suggestions greatly welcome.

Mike
25  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Timer on: February 04, 2009, 08:22:33 PM
I believe I found the issue.  My "settings" window opens so you see everything but the "Send" button at the bottom.  So I figured closing it had the same effect.  I just scrolled down to find the button, clicked send, and now my timers are working and I have pleasure.

Great plug-in, thanks!
