I wrote something along the same lines a few years ago.  It's not quite what you requested, but you might find it useful:


If you're set, let us know and I'll mark this thread solved.

As warned, using the profiles option is still not a great idea. My db was wiped (but I had a backup) presumably as a result.

Sorry to hear this.  Do you recall anything different about it shutting down the previous time before this happened?

That aside, stunning program. It's become an important part of my day.

Thanks...I'm glad you find it useful.

The only thing I would change is to fix the sorting on large episode numbers. It's rather a PITA trying to work around it.

Which column are you sorting on exactly?
55 Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sChecklist on: March 12, 2015, 02:58:29 PM
Meant to get back with you sooner, skwire.  The nearest I can tell, is somewhere between possibly running CCleaner, or rebooting following updates, the stuff can go missing.  Almost as though the data is being kept in a temporary - or unprotected - area of memory. (just a novice's impression.)  Could it possibly use a 'save' button - to re-write the data base / text file, to prevent this from happening?  I dunno.  But it's a damnable glitch in such a handy little app.

Just for clarification, is this something you still notice in the latest version?

Hi, koeckk, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

MHP only worked with my defined hotkey (Play/pause = pg dwn) only for one day. Cannot restart it again.
Did the same on another PC with Windows 7 with the same result - worked for one day, after that not accepting the defined key again.
The MHP program is really nice and easy. What could be the problem or what did I wrong?

Sorry to hear you're having an issue.  It's possible another application is taking over the Page Down hotkey you set.  Can you try setting a different hotkey and see if that works?
57 Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sChecklist on: March 10, 2015, 09:25:57 PM
I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with the application.  If you can provide me with a specific set of repeatable steps to reproduce the issue, I should be able to fix it.

And I also still use the application that I begged Skwire to code for me as well, a good five years or so logged on Anuran (

Wow.  Makes me smile to know it's still useful to you.  smiley

FileHippo moved to bundled installers Angry thumb down Angry (and a new site design mad) some time ago.  Sad, really, as their site was beautifully laid out and easy to work with.

Unfortunately, this would be a massive redesign and probably isn't going to happen.  Apologies.
61 Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Steam URL Converter on: March 03, 2015, 12:19:47 PM
Works here for me using W7/64 Ultimate.  The account I use has administrator rights and UAC is set to "Never notify" (if that matters).

All my computers at home run TightVNC.  I can access them easily from my travel laptop, Android phone, or Android tablet.  From my laptop, I use the standard TightVNC viewer.  From my phone or tablet, I use TightVNC's Remote Ripple Pro app.  Of course, all of this is over an SSL VPN connection to my home router.  Is that what you meant?
63 Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Scan music collection for missing covers/artwork on: March 03, 2015, 09:09:55 AM
I have the coverart inside of the m4a files, but it is showing every folder I have for music.  What am I doing wrong?

As I said in the previous post, CovArt Ops scans through the folders you specify and, if it finds any of the listed file types within a folder, it will add that folder to the CovArt Ops interface.  Am I misunderstanding you?  Unfortunately, though, I'm pretty sure that CovArt Ops currently supports embedded cover art in mp3 files only.

64 Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Scan music collection for missing covers/artwork on: March 03, 2015, 08:24:44 AM
I tried to scan my music collection and it showed me 1452 entries. wtf? I had meticulously made sure all of them had CovArt Ops; I think what's happening is CovArt Ops is seeing my m3u files and saying those don't have a picture.

CovArt Ops scans through the folder you specify looking for the following types of files: mp3, ogg, flac, wv, wav, mpc, ape, wma, mp4, m4a, tta, tak, shn, jpg, png, gif, or bmp.  If it finds any of those, it considers that folder an album folder and displays it within the application's interface.

Okay, I found the cause but no idea why.

If I change Win+Ctrl+... to Win+Shift+... it works. Looks like at work there is a program using Win+Ctrl combos installed. But only some because Win+Ctrl+F1 for play/pause is working.  Wink

Thanks for the help.

You're welcome.  Good luck!   smiley

It's really strange, at Home W7/64 Pro and WMP v12.0.7601.18150 it works but at work, same OS and WMP version it doesn't. Sad
I already thought of some program maybe interfering with the combo Win+Ctrl+F3 and Win+Ctrl+F4 but I don't know one using this.

Some things to try at work:

  • A different set of hotkeys.
  • Running the app with administrator rights.
67 Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release - Splat (Simple Program Launching and Termination) on: February 27, 2015, 02:31:00 AM
where is command line sopport? Sad

The only argument you can pass to Splat.exe is:  /profile:"c:\full\path\to\<ProfileName>.profile"
You can easily create a shortcut for a profile by right-clicking the profile name and choosing the "Send launch profile shortcut to desktop" entry.  As the help file explains, launching a profile in this manner doesn't display the main interface.  Only the tray icon is shown for the duration of the profile.

UI problem

Sometimes it gets wacky like that.  Choose View > Reset splitter position from the menu and restart Splat.


I'm going to guess you're running a folder and expecting Splat to continue when you close Windows Explorer.  As the info button near that option explains: Enabling this option runs the item and waits, indefinitely, for its process ID (PID) to close before moving on to the next item.  This option is typically used with console or commandline programs that exit on their own after running a command.  Use with care.

In other words, that option is not designed to do what you want with a folder.  It's designed mainly for commandline apps.

suggest: add close/kill all programs or common templet profile(contain some always runing progames like, firewall antivirus...)
I've added a lot of profiles(10), If I want to switch to PURE game mode(game profile), maybe I need to close a lot of programs of other profiles for "PURE". Or someday, if I add another profile contain some new programs, then I need to edit all profiles for "PURE". Sad
work profile: close all (or recover to common templet profile)-> A.exe B.exe C.folder
surf profile: close all (or recover to common templet profile)-> C.folder F.exe
game profile: close all (or recover to common templet profile)-> G.exe

No, I will not be adding a "close all" type of option or any sort of pre-made templates.  The reason is that it's easy for you as a user to say to yourself, "Just close all running programs" because you know what to close.  For me, as the programmer, it's damn near impossible.  Why?  Consider all the stuff currently running in your task manager.  I can't just go attempt to close down every running process in there.  That would be Very Badâ„¢.  Your computer would completely shit the bed if I tried that.

As an FYI, you can run a profile within a profile.  So, if you add another profile called, say, NEWSTUFF, with a lot of, ahem, new stuff, you can simply add an entry in your PURE profile that calls this NEWSTUFF profile.  You can get pretty modular with Splat in this way.

Hi, captain1701, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   cheesy

I have just a small problem with the usage under Windows 7 x64. I setup four actions (play/pause, show/hide, previous and next) but only the first two are working with Windows Media Player.
Previous and next don't jump to another song, they just jump inside the current song.

I just tested it with Windows Media Player v12.0.7601.18150 under W7/64 Ultimate and it seems to work okay.  Which version of Windows Media Player are you using?

Many thanks. Much better now.  Thmbsup
Anyway, all is fine now.

Right on.  =]  Thanks for reporting back.

v1.1.4 - 2015-02-18
    * Renamed a few of the Edit menu entries.  (Thanks, ScreenManiac)
    * Attempting to paste entries while the checklist list is focused now pastes
      into that checklist's list.
    ! Cutting from one checklist and switching to another would erroneously
      restore the cut entries to the original checklist.

Nice tool.  thumbs up

Thank you.

It were nice to have thumbnails, but that's probably not easy to implement.

I thought about this when I was writing it and maybe a second window that would display the image would work.

What would help also, however, were a bigger font size (optional).

Added in the latest version.

Any way to pass a directory to it via command line? Maybe even with a filter-parameter to show image files only?

Basic commandline handling has been added as well.  The app should already restrict files to only the following extensions: jpg, jpeg, bmp, gif, png, tiff, & ico

v1.0.2 - 2015-02-18
    + Added customisable list font.  (Thanks, ScreenManiac)
    + Added basic commandline handling for file and folders.  (Thanks, ScreenManiac)
    + Added "Create SendTo menu shortcut" option in the Options tab.

Drag&Drop across lists - that would be awesome, to quickly re-organize stuff and outsource it to another list.
ATM this only works via Copy&Paste, then going back to the source, hopefully recalling the entire selection, and deleting it.

Hmmm...I'm not sure how you'd go about dragging and dropping since you can only view one checklist at a time.  You should be able to cut entries and then copy them into a new list.  However, I just found a bug where cut entries are restored to the original list when selecting a new list.  I will fix this.

Also, I struggled a bit with the right mouse menu, took me a while to realize that "entry data" refers to exactly what it says, the data within the entry, not the entry item itself. It was not immediately obvious because using Ctrl+C to copy/paste the selected item elsewhere does work as well, although it seemed iffy (you have to exit and restart to see it actually did work)

Based on what you're saying, I think you have this backwards.  The "Cut/Copy/Paste entry data" options manipulate the entire entry (check state included), not the data within the entry.  If you want to copy the textual data within an entry, you have to use the "Copy to clipboard" item in that menu.  Perhaps if I rename as per the following, it will allay some confusion?

Cut entry data -> Cut entries
Copy entry data -> Copy entries
Paste entry data -> Paste entries

Copy to clipboard -> Copy text to clipboard
Paste from clipboard -> Paste text from clipboard
