this tool claims to "extract files from any type of archive, whether it's a simple zip file, an installation program, or even a Windows Installer (.msi) package." i think, it will come in handy if anyone wants to just extract files from the installers

btw, happens to be written in AutoIt and acts a front-end for a lot of other cmd-line programs. more info at the website and its forum:

spotted this on the net: WinCalendarTime.
not as feature-packed as TClock and its ilk but this is a tool that can be appreciated for its simplicity.

XXMKLINK also works similarly but after thinking about it, i kinda prefer a Gui-ish tool..

ah, drag+drop robot.. good idea, mouser. thumbs up i all but forgot about it.. i think ddr needs more promotion, eh? anyway, i'll be needing a cmd-line *.lnk file maker first.
5555  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Windows 98SE Copy/move replacement/enhancement w/ auto rename on: November 20, 2006, 10:18:26 PM
The problem is that Supercopier deletes the normal registry entries then re-creates them into it's own key. When you uninstall Supercopier, it deletes all of the Supercopier keys from the registry, hence the commands are gone.

hi there polski8,

your observation is very interesting. may i know what registry keys are replaced? and also, can you give some more info on restoring them with the program that you mentioned..
5556  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Create shortcuts from a list on: November 20, 2006, 10:08:37 PM
sometimes i need to create quickly shortcuts but the right-click/drag-drop is a bit slow at times. i have a list which i would like a program to go through and create individual shortcuts for each item in the list.

so, i am wondering if there is a program that could create shortcuts (*.lnk) from a text list containing file and/or folder.. can anyone help me out?

• some kind of help file would be nice, for starters maybe an about box with a brief description.
• add an alternate "teleport" folder.

this is a standard feature on most file managers & explorer replacements, maybe you want to try one, such as the often-praised - Total Commander..

here is one such thread in DC: 12 Windows Explorer Alternatives Compared.

5565  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Refresh takes a long time on: November 15, 2006, 08:11:59 PM
if you disable your main toolbar and create just one toolbar with like one button, does it still take so long to load?
nope, with one item, it's super fast.. Wink

anyway, i disabled every folder nodes, then tried again.. this time, the very 1st time is quite slow but subsequently the response time picks up..
5566  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Refresh takes a long time on: November 15, 2006, 06:58:20 PM
mouser, i'd like to post my reply here, if u don't mind..

Quote
1) check whether the long delay goes away if you configure the preferences and return to docking bar 2 times in a row.
2) try disabling some of your items, especially those that might refer to FOLDER contents menu, and see if that speeds up displaying the contents.
3) how long does it take to save the file if you just save it from within the preferences.

q1: if i open & close the preferences twice in a row, the response time slightly improves..
q2: i've disabled most of the folder nodes, except for some with very few shortcuts..
q3: it's instantaneous, no lag at all..

this is interesting, tchikien.. i also would like to see how it turns out, looks like a good tool. thumbs up

ok, will do. mouser.. thumbs up
5570  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Refresh takes a long time on: November 14, 2006, 11:46:36 PM
sorry to disappoint you, mouser but "Hide Missing Files" option is unchecked..

actually i wanted to hide items that are in removable drives, which should be a case of checking for drive existence instead of individual files.. since LC doesn't do that yet, i've left the option unchecked.

currently you can't change the icon, unless you're willing to use ResHack and i'm not sure whether mouser would approve of that.. undecided
5573  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Shutdown/restart/hibernate etc. ability? on: November 14, 2006, 07:46:10 PM
i use a JScript that shows the ShutDown dialog upon clicking on it, just google it & you'll find a lot of examples.
here's one:
Quote
Bringing Up the Shutdown Dialog Box

   1. Create a new txt file somewhere on your system, open it and put in this one line:
      (new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application")).ShutdownWindows();
   2. Save and Close the file. Change the extension to js and your got it.
   3. You can make a shortcut to that file to make it easy to shut down your system.

i've been catching up with all the discussions in-between. i understand that in no way that the developers can be made responsible for something that is made on their behalf (referring to the 1st poster). even when i wrote my reply, it was to prevent the poster from getting on the wrong foot, thus creating a negative connotation of the software.

in any case, authors are welcome to post their views and explain the inner workings of their software.
