Hi, Paul, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   Thmbsup

Hey thanks for the awesome program. I use it everyday.

You're welcome; I'm glad you find it useful.

1. I manually entered a string value with a location to my Files2Folder.exe to use it's icon. Looks more nice in the context menu. Maybe ask users upon installation?

I'll consider this.  Which hive/key/value did you add?

2. Doesn't work with items on my desktop.
[...]
May this have something to do with them being shortcuts?

Correct, the program doesn't work with .LNK or .URL files.  However, for me at least, regular items seem to work fine on my desktop.  Keep in mind that I have UAC disabled on my computer.

3. Finally I'm having issues in protected areas. I can't use the program in say Program Files. I assume this is due to UAC

It's almost certainly due to UAC.  I know it's not much help, but the app works fine for me in Program Files.  Again, though, I have UAC disabled.  Please keep in mind that F2F was originally developed in 2009 on XP and, due to the massive shell code changes after XP, I'm surprised it works at all under Windows Vista/7/8/10.

At this point, I think you have the following options left:

  • Why did you only try the first one?   huh  Try the other tutorials listed in the Google search.
  • If that doesn't work, navigate to the game's install folder and look for an "uninstall.exe" (or similar).
  • If that doesn't work, do a Google search for: "uninstalling <game name here>"
  • If nothing else works, just delete the game's folder and forget about it.

Great suggestion, JJ.

@John Alaska: Do you mind if I mark this thread as solved and move it to the Finished Section?

There seems to be several tutorials on uninstalling games in Windows 8.  Have you tried any of them?

Many thanks for the suggestion! I have just downloaded Daminion... It appears quite complicated but what I can tell it relies mostly upon the native properties in Windows for its tagging fields. Please let me know if you can figure out how to add custom columns, tags, etc. I am not seeing the option(s)

For the record, one of the Daminion co-founders has responded in this DC thread about the application: https://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=26159.0

You might consider asking your question in that thread.   smiley

Is it possible to configure things like "eject media", "increase/decrease sound volume", "mute", "shutdown"?

"Shutdown" is already in there and I could add handling for your other three requests.

Reason i'm asking, have been using Hotkeyz for these things and it isn't being upgraded and won't work well with Windows 10.

Splat is developed and tested on Windows 7 only so I can't promise that anything will work on W10.  That said, has Splat been working well for you under W10?

s it possible for you to base the code on the "free" RAM instead on the "available" RAM? For me, free RAM is a much better indicator: things tend to slow down when all free RAM is used up (probably because of increased pagefile usage).

AFAIK, Free is (roughly) the value of Available minus Cached.  However, the data in Cached is not written to disk, i.e., it's not swapped to disk.  Windows just holds it in memory in case it needs to be used again and it's immediately overwritten, in RAM, by new data if the system needs the RAM.  That is, this all happens in RAM, not the HDD/SSD.  In other words, your system should release that cached RAM immediately when it's needed and your system shouldn't slow down.

At any rate, I can't seem to find an MSDN article on how to retrieve those Free and/or Cached values anyway.   Sad  Maybe somebody else can point me to one.

I like the idea of something like the way Task Manager sits there with a square with a dark background and a solid color rises and falls showing Cpu usage. Task Manager's is green. You could do the same look with blue and it would be a great pair because at least for my daily use, Cpu use and memory use are far from the same, and I don't currently have anything fancy installed that dynamically monitors memory.

Process Explorer does what you're asking.  Launch it and look under Options > Tray Icons.

Give this a try, please: http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/snacks/brotherSTrayMem.zip

Notes:
  • There are a few values in the INI file you can modify.  By default, the application checks the RAM every second, the yellow level is set at 2/3 of available RAM, and the red level is set at 1/3 of available RAM.
  • The icons it uses are in the /icons folder.  I included two sets I made so feel free to use whichever you want (or make your own and share).
  • Hovering over the tray icon will show a tooltip with the available RAM on your computer.

I've done some basic testing with it but let me know if you have any issues.

Give me a few minutes and I can have something written for you.  What kind of icon design were you thinking of?  Simple squares of colour?  Something else?
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Jaikoz Audio Tagger, what are your thoughts? on: July 14, 2015, 11:54:08 AM
I haven't used anything but Mp3tag for many years now.  An absolutely bullshit-free interface just like I prefer and free (though I did donate years ago).   Thmbsup
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to specify remote folder (on SFTP server) in Free File Sync on: July 08, 2015, 06:29:36 PM
Did you try: ~/public_html/proofingDocs
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to specify remote folder (on SFTP server) in Free File Sync on: July 08, 2015, 05:42:25 PM
Try using this path:  public_html/proofingDocs

If that fails, try using the entire path.
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to specify remote folder (on SFTP server) in Free File Sync on: July 08, 2015, 05:19:37 PM
SSH into the box and navigate to the Proofreading folder.  Then, use the PWD command to get the actual full path and try that.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to specify remote folder (on SFTP server) in Free File Sync on: July 08, 2015, 05:07:06 PM
I'll ask the obvious question...does entering "Proofreading" without the quotes and slashes work?
16  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: automated mp3 rip from video clip on: June 26, 2015, 12:51:01 PM
A interface. Any interface.

I appreciate the sentiment, but Video2MP3 was written for a specific request by the original poster and, thus, is extremely basic and barely configurable.  It will remain that way because there are innumerable other more capable media converter apps out there that I just do not see the need to write an interface for Video2MP3.  @c.gingerich pointed out one above but that is just one of MANY.

Hi, telealex, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  I'm on holiday this week but I'll try to take a closer look at your post when I get back.

I was able to procure a PDF of issue 449 and it also features mouser's Launchbar Commander.

Thanks for the PDF, rjbull.  I wonder if any DC members could find the original issue that Splat was featured in.   smiley

Thanks for the kind words, dvally.  cheesy  I'm on holiday this week so I'll try to remember to take a look at this when I get back.
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Right Click any file and create New Folder by its Name on: June 10, 2015, 09:48:25 AM
Is there a way to configure the program (config.ini ??) so that folders can be created with the source files date ?

Hi, zramdt, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  In regards to your question, no, there currently is no way to make Files 2 Folder work that way.  However, please do check out the application that tomos referred to as I think it's designed to do what you want.

just in case Skwire cannot help directly, here is a possible solution:
DONE: Change (sub) folder(s) date based on newest/oldest file in the folder

I was going to suggest that program, too, tomos.

Good stuff!  Maybe a "ds /all" parameter (or similar) to easily output all drives?

Right on.  Thanks for the report.

I got stuck on step one in those instructions as one can't add a show if it doesn't show up in the search results for selection thus activating (un-ghosting) the "Add series" button.

Step one was to just add any show as a temporary placeholder to manually edit later.  At any rate, I'm glad you got it working.  In the meantime, I've added a note to my ToDo to come up with some way to add a show via its ID (for situations such as this).

Dennis Leary's new series "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll" (yes, all one string) is posted up at TheTVDB and lists the first ep on July 18.  Doing an epCheck search finds a multitude of shows about, ahem, cough cough... sex.  But not Leary's.

I'm wondering if there's a problem on TheTVDB's side or if epCheck's search is having an issue with one long string of text with three ampersands glommed in?

This is due to the fact that the TVDB.com website search and its API search don't return the same results (for whatever reason).  What I mean is that you can search for "Eye Candy" directly on the site and it's listed in the results.  Searching the same string using the proper API doesn't return the show.  Rather frustrating for both of us, eh?  That said, if you're inclined, you can modify the appropriate profile file in your epCheck data folder, and add the show manually as demonstrated in this post:
