Any news, sir?

Ah, crap.  Apologies, Waster, this slipped my mind.  I'll get this coded for you.  =]

Downloaded, installed, and looking good so far!

Thanks, Jim.  I may have fixed that resizing bug from earlier, too.  Can you give it a thrashing and see if you can make that issue happen?

Cool!  Thanks.

You are very welcome.

"Product" & "Copyright" columns, for example. Please check attachment.

This looks to be an issue with sigcheck.exe itself not being able to handle those characters.  Run a "sigcheck -a c:\windows\explorer.exe" and you'll see what I mean.

As per your other thread's post here asking how to get the adapter names, you can use the following commands:

netsh interface show interface
netsh interface show ip interface

Example output:

Sometimes the window gets unresponsive while handling a lot of files. That's why I suggested priority similarly to how archive managers handle things. I'm not sure if it's possible.

Unfortunately, that unresponsiveness has nothing to do with the process priority.  It has to do with the fact that the UI is waiting for the commandline sigcheck.exe to finish.  There are a few different methods I can use for this so it might be something I can alleviate.

Also, it would be very interesting to see a cache system that might speed up the process since some files might have been (already) processed.

Doubtful that I'd add this.

Perhaps there should be another action in "View" tab that gives end-users the ability to show only unique files (not duplicates).

I can add an option like "Skip duplicates in list" or something like that.  If this is enabled, files that already exist in the list will be skipped.  I'd think the full path would have to match exactly for this to be useful, though.

Another issue that I've observed is that it does not handle special characters well. Probably a display issue.

The app does seem to handle Unicode paths and Unicode filenames without issue so I'll assume you're talking about the actual displayed data.  If so, can you provide me an example of what you're seeing?

And another suggestion would be to rename "Trusted list" to "Trusted Vendors" as this might avoid possible confusion & make the box re-sizable.

Can do.

Also, the clean action will not do anything if files are being processed. I'm guessing this option could be grayed out or/and inform the user that it is not possible, maybe.

Can do.

Under "Help" tab > "Contents", users would expect a help file and not a pop-up that describes SigcheckGUI since there is an "About" button. Superseded.

Ah, help files.  The bane of developers everywhere.   smiley  I'm terrible at providing them.   embarassed  That said, I do try to write my applications such that, hopefully, a help file shouldn't be needed for the most part.

Another suggestion that might be useful regarding quick access would be to add another action in the right-click menu named, for example, "Open File Location".

Can do.

Maybe, the "Info Box" action from right-click menu should be grayed out for multiple files.

Good point.

SigcheckGUI or SigCheckGUI -- Is it intended?

I've seen both.  However, the official site for the sigcheck.exe program that does the grunt work has it spelled Sigcheck so that's what I went with.

Thanks to everybody that dared use the betas and provided feedback.  I've decided to go ahead and release my internal build 73 as a full release.  As before, do yourself a favour and make a backup of your epCheck folder.

MAKE A BACKUP...PLEASE...

Website | Download
v1.1.4 - 2014-09-14
    + Added a "Profiles" option that allows you to create multiple lists of
      series.  For example, you could create a Watched list, a Cancelled
      list, an Ended list, etc.  Check out the Options tab to create new
      profiles.  The profiles feature is currently a BETA feature and needs
      some testing.  As such, there is a good possibility that it might not
      work as designed and your epCheck data might be lost or otherwise
      munged.  Make backups.
    + Added an "<All Profiles>" entry to the Profiles dropdown to easily
      view all series from all profiles.
    + Currently selected profile is shown in the statusbar.
    + Added "Move to" and "Copy to" profile options when right-clicking a
      series.
    + Added the series air time (EST) and network to the both the series
      and weekly listviews.  (Thanks, Daniel P.)
    + Added status column to listviews.
    + Added icons to tab labels.
    + Added right-click search menu to the Search tab so you can now more
      easily find web information on the search results.  (Thanks,
      kalvanotherwhen)
    + Option to allow ESC key to close epCheck.
    + Added Profile column to the Series list.
    * Changed "Load weekly view on startup" option to "Load weekly data on
      startup" to avoid confusion with the startup tab option.
      (Thanks, hamradio)
    * Moved the "Show special episodes" option from the Options tab to a
      toolbar button.
    ! Fixed some issues with the right-click web search menu.
    ! Episode display format was not saved and applied properly.  (Thanks,
      kalvanotherwhen)
    ! Removing a profile wouldn't properly remove data folders for series
      that didn't exist on remaining profiles.  (Thanks, vamiz)
    ! Fixed a nasty HTML encode/decode issue that could result in epCheck
      getting stuck in a race condition.  (Thanks, S. Mainey)

Good stuff. Although the help still says it's a front end for tiffinfo. :-)

Thanks!  I uploaded a silent build that should fix that help issue.

v1.0.7 - 2014-09-13
    + Pressing the Escape key while a scan is going now cancels the scan.
134  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Tool that lists digitally signed files from a folder/disk on: September 13, 2014, 02:08:31 PM
Nice tool. Thank you!

Thank you. I will spread the word about this amazing piece of software.

Thank you, Mattes57 & neverlight.  I'm glad you like the software.

You should add a stop/pause/resume feature & process priority (foreground,background) feature.

"Cancelling a scan" feature is forthcoming.  Regarding the process priority request, what do you expect to gain from such (honest question)?

Apologies for that.   embarassed

v1.0.6 - 2014-09-11
    ! Re-enabled VirusTotal functionality.  SigcheckGUI now checks for the
      acceptance of the Sigcheck EULA and the VirusTotal ToS and will prompt
      the user for acceptance if necessary.

v1.0.5 - 2014-09-11
    ! Disabled the VirusTotal functionality until some kinks are worked out.
136  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Tool that lists digitally signed files from a folder/disk on: September 11, 2014, 01:53:51 PM
Yeah, disabled that in a new build until I work out those kinks.  I know WHAT the issue is...just need to come up with a way to handle it elegantly.

v1.0.4 - 2014-09-10
    + Added option to query VirusTotal (www.virustotal.com) for malware based on
      file hash.  Note that this slows down scanning considerably.  You can see the
      results in two new columns: Virus Total Detection and Virus Total URL.
    + Added context menu entry to go to the Virus Total URLs.
    + Added context menu entries to perform web searches based on the process name.
      Choose from Google, Bing, and Duck Duck Go.
    + Added "Export file list" feature to dump the full paths to a text file for
      later import using the "Import file list" feature.

I'm not exhaling just yet but this is a good sign.  Thank you for testing.

Media Player Classic will do most of what you want:

1) Play video files in full screen on second monitor.
2) Display JPEG files.  TIFFs won't display but you convert them to JPEG beforehand, no?
3) Won't auto-advance after a JPEG -- just use hotkeys.

Just build your playlist like this:

147  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Way to hide a desktop icon temporarily? on: September 03, 2014, 02:57:54 PM
If the "icon" is indeed a shortcut it will "disappear" if the Hidden attribute is set.  As an experiment I made a shortcut to cmd.exe and checked the Hidden attribute.  It winked out when I hit the Apply Button.  smiley

I actually did think of this earlier but, if you're like me, you have "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" option enabled so this method wouldn't work.
148  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Way to hide a desktop icon temporarily? on: September 03, 2014, 02:07:26 PM
No, thanks but that's not it. That hack is all or nothing. I would like to be able to schedule any individual icon to reappear later as a visual alarm (albeit on the desktop, not 'always on top') and theoretically at completely different times each.

Desktop icons can be either actual files or shortcuts (which are actually LNK files).  So, short of moving particualr files to, say, a temp folder and back to the desktop on a schedule, which seems a bit hackish, I don't think what you want is elegantly possible.
149  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Way to hide a desktop icon temporarily? on: September 03, 2014, 12:44:05 PM
At the bottom of this page, you'll find a download for a tiny app that toggles the desktop's icons.  That, coupled with a few entries in the built-in Windows Task Scheduler applet, should be able to accomplish what you want.  Or, were you looking for something more custom?
150  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Game (& reviews) industry's silent scandal on: September 02, 2014, 01:46:59 PM
Maybe I'm too old or just old-school when it comes to stuff like this but my feelings are:

  • Good grief, do folks keep nothing private anymore?
  • I would be thoroughly embarrased to have aired my own dirty laundry like this in public.  Hell, I felt embarassed after reading just a couple of paragraphs; I couldn't even finish it.
  • It's apalling to me that garbage like this is worthy of the viral explosion that results from it.  What a waste of time.

In regards to game review scores, it's just like anything else you purchase in life: Caveat emptor, baby.  Caveat emptor.  Do your homework.  As wraith808 said, wait for some user reviews.  Think about it for a while.  Ultimately, however, you're the one that pulls the trigger when buying a game so, if a game doesn't meet your expectations, accept it, forget about it, and move on.   cheesy  Remember, it's just a game.    Wink

Did that all sound too curmudgeonly?  Have I actually reached that stage in life?  Hahahahahaha.   tongue

Disclaimer: I am 40 years old and, while not a private person at all, have never had a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or <insert social network> account.  However, I feel somewhat qualified to have an opinion on the aforementioned based on having been around the internet for a long, long time (with Usenet posts dating back to the very early 1990s).
