I also get a propsys.dll error on Windows XP Pro SP3 -- I don't have Windows Search installed and had assumed that was a factor.  May be it's something different?

Thanks for posting this, MilesAhead.

Some initial notes:

  • Source appears available.
  • A bit on the large side, but Universal Extractor seems to handle this one ok too.
  • Some registry-writing for this one, but that may be because it is using Qt.
  • Mmm, Python (console) and plugins smiley
  • Seems fairly speedy, though the help seems a bit heavy.

Seems like fun for hackers  Thmbsup

Thanks for mentioning XML Marker, sajman99.

Some notes on trying out XML Marker:

  • Appears to write to Registry
  • Universal Extractor seems to handle extraction of setup file ok
  • Seemed to work fine with FARR's .alias files
  • Help file seems pretty decent (even has minor helpful animations smiley )

I think this looks like a potentially worthwhile application.

FWIW, what I'd been using looks like:

There was one recurring annoyance which I don't recall very clearly, but it wasn't that frequent.  Currently using only one machine so the switch isn't in use.  Overall I did find it convenient to be able to use one set of peripherals to switch among various boxen.

1533  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: reopen recently opened explorer windows, history, MRU on: May 02, 2010, 06:20:11 AM
Today I learned something related to this idea while trying out some NirSoft tools.

One of the tools is called "ShellBagsView" and within a corresponding .chm file there is this text:

Quote
Each time that you open a folder in Explorer, Windows automatically save the settings of this folder into the Registry. This utility displays the list of all folder settings saved by Windows. For each folder, the following information is displayed: The date/time that you opened it, the entry number, display mode (Details, Icons, Tiles, and so on...), the last position of the window, and the last size of the window.

Perhaps leveraging this information would allow an approach that doesn't try to periodically monitor what Windows Explorer is doing.

Though it requires an installation of Git separately [1], I've been using SmartGit a bit.  My understanding is that there is a license which is free for non-commerical use:

  http://www.syntevo.com/smartgit/license-agreement.html

I got a portable version and have it set up with a portable Java installation.

It has been helping me develop my mental model of Git and thus I thought it might count as a resource for the learning of Git.

Now if there were something comparable for Mercurial smiley  SmartGit seems to support Mercurial now.


[1] I've tested with portable msys git and have been using it mostly to clone other things.  I didn't manage to figure out how to "git init" so that part I've done via the command line. Figured out how to "git init" with SmartGit.

Thanks for the response phitsc smiley

I think FARR WMS with a local file in an appropriate format could well be up to the task intended by the original poster.

Sounds very nice!


P.S. Good luck in your company-transitioning.

I like the general idea though am much in the dark about good specific approaches.

To share some possibly related thoughts:

I've been building up an alias for local documentation.  It doesn't do much that's fancy for things that haven't been processed by CHM2Alias, but at least I can type "docs <something>" to get uniform quick access to a fair bit of documentation.  If we're talking only CHM, there's this tool, KeyHH which lets one:

Quote
Open an HTML Help window based on a keyword search

I was thinking of trying to hook this up to a plugin version of CHM2Alias.

Reasoning:
While FARRWebMetaSearch is a great idea, the purpose of this plugin is to use an offline version to eliminate the requirement of internet access.
Hmm...

smiley

phitsc?

Also (as hinted at by mouser) I'm interested in seeing if anything useful can come about from:

http://www.donationcoder....18016.msg203103#msg203103

I don't have Windows Search, but if I get another PC at some point, it's likely to run Windows 7 (or something later), and IIUC, Windows Search would be on there by default...so this approach may turn out to be personally interesting once the local OS situations evolves a bit.
1542  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Problems with fscript 1.20 on: April 27, 2010, 06:49:32 PM
BTW : how do you configure aliases (shortcut keys) for these fscript plugins ?
(Since you can't use the normal plugin interface.)
The short version: I don't and I don't know how in a convenient way.

The longer version: I think it may be technically possible for FScript plugins to provide the ability to configure aliases, but specific FScript plugins may not.  In fact, not many (if any) may currently be
written this way.

Do you have specific ones you'd like to configure?  Depending on the case, it may not be too hard to make a change (this would be via editing an appropriate fscript.js file -- in the case of an FSubscript plugin (e.g. any CZB pack one) the file name may be different and the types of modifications may also differ).  A downside of this approach include that after updates, editing would likely have to happen again.  If you have a specific one in mind, may be we could take a look to see what might be involved.
1543  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Problems with fscript 1.20 on: April 27, 2010, 06:41:44 PM
But... If I may ask... What are the advantages of using 1.20 instead of 1.9 ?
My rough understanding is like this -- in the case of FScript, development is along a single line, the older stuff is generally less paid attention to / maintained.  I believe that most of the time, things get fixed and features get added, but that's usually taking place at or near the latest version for FScript.  If this understanding is off or in error in some way, may be ecardec (author of FScript) can clarify smiley

Quote
I'd be surprised if the old timer conflicted with the new one as it was deactivated. But who knows. I'll try.
I didn't test this because I didn't find the older one.

Taking a step back for a moment, I think it might make sense to give some consideration to testing with less plugins first and gradually adding more back.  I think it is not too unusual for less pieces in the picture being simpler to understand and consider.  Alternatively, repeated bisection might be another approach (i.e. disable half of the plugins -- check for symptoms, if they still exist, choose half of the remaining half to disable -- check for symptoms, repeat until nothing is left or symptoms disappear with some plugins remaining).

Good luck with time-related things in the mean time:)
1544  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Problems with fscript 1.20 on: April 27, 2010, 05:07:58 PM
Thanks for the report.

In my testing recently based on a subset of reported plugins, I found that Clock and Timer (the one in CZB pack) didn't seem to get along.  I'm currently trying things out with FScript 1.20 -- I hope we can get that working.

IIUC, the older Timer is no longer maintained -- so it's kind of a "ticking bomb" or a "timer waiting to expire".  Perhaps we can try to get things working so it is not necessary smiley

Would you mind moving the older Timer (not the CZB pack one) and Clock somewhere else (with FARR not running, move the Timer and Clock folders from directly under the Plugins directory somewhere outside of the Plugins directory) and seeing if things improve at all?  (If the Timer and Clock folders (or copies) are kept without deletion, I believe it should be possible to restore them.)

Also, in the FARR options window, there should be a Troubleshooting Log section.  If it's enabled, we might get some hints as to some plugins that FARR is encountering difficulties with.

What do you think?
1545  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FARR plugin: FARR Windows Search 0.1.0 on: April 27, 2010, 09:10:41 AM
I confess to not having tested FARR Windows Search -- but that has more to do with the machines here lacking the underlying Windows Search functionality.  Is it correct that Windows versions above XP come with Windows Search?  If that's so, once I get such a machine (or license), I'll likely be trying out FARR Windows Search smiley

phitsc, mouser recently brought up the idea of a general-purpose chm search tool, and we came across:

Do you think that this IFilter (or something similar) combined with your Windows Search plugin might result in anything interesting?

Sorry, I don't have any good ideas about your situation, but FWIW, the following are some thoughts.

And for the second :
"C:\ProgramFiles\AutoHotKey\compiler\CreateShortcutThere.exe" "%1"
There are two things about this that I'm curious about:

1. Is the path between the first set of double-quotes where your CreateShortcutThere.exe file lives?  If you copy-paste the path between the first set of quotes into a command prompt window (e.g. run cmd.exe from the run dialog (Windows Key + R)), what do you get as a result?  Alternatively, can you use Windows Explorer to visit the path between the first set of double-quotes without the CreateShortcutThere.exe portion?  If you do, do you see a file named CreateShortcutThere.exe?

2. I'm more used to seeing "Program Files" with a space between the "m" and the "F".  I noticed in the path above that there seems to be no space.  Also, I tend to see "AutoHotkey" with a lower-case "k" in folder names -- though perhaps in this case, it makes no difference -- I noticed that in the path above, there is a capital "K".

If you run the CreateShortcutThere.exe file again and ask it to remove the context sensitive menu entry, does it successfully remove the context sensitive menu entry? 

Also, if you move the exe file somewhere else and try to add to the context sensitive menu by running the exe, does that make any difference as far as the behavior you reported about it not working is concerned?
