N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: NANY 2019 - Windows App - Process Watcher
« on: November 07, 2018, 06:37 AM »
Ha, sounds interesting.
Most difficult part would be to organize the logging in such way that it actually makes sense when looking at it, without being overwhelmed with 'all that data' :o
Maybe the memory/cpu use-log should be separated, possibly a logfile per exe (path+filename, possibly reversed, and : and \ replaced by another character?) and include the pid inside the logfile to be able to filter on. (Hint: the LogStash family of products, no ties)

Your request is very generic, could you add more details, like the application involved, a screenshot, and, also interesting, the motivation for removing it?

You could try to disable your antivirus... that is usually adding a lot of unpredictability to Windows' responsetimes. :o

A second update after 7 years of silence on the WinSendKeys (releases) front:

  • Added -i <delay> and initialdelay ini-setting for inserting a milliseconds delay before sending anything to the window
  • Added -s <delay> and senddelay ini-setting for changing the default 5 msec delay between sending each character
  • Added -sd <delay> and senddowndelay ini-setting for changing the default 5 msec key-down delay for each character/key sent

Get it from the first post in this thread.

After 7 years of silence on the WinSendKeys (releases) front, there now is an update:

  • If the window (-w argument or from ini file) is not found, the ERRORLEVEL is set to 1 (by user request)
  • Re-compiled with the latest AutoIt3 compiler (v3.3.14.5), so it is up to par with all those modern OS versions :P

Get it from the first post in this thread.

I also updated the defunct links to the old DCMembers site, I should probably have updated a year ago... :-[

two bigger text boxes where i can enter/paste multiple lines of text
add option to check two files
I'll put that on the TODO list for the NANY release.

Also I'll check the source licenses, and at least link to them, later.

Just added a disclaimer I should have included earlier :-[
Searched and found the algorithms and included them in a C#/WinForms app (would have liked to do it in Java, but creating a GUI in/with Java is such a PITA).

Doesn't do anything other than calculate the values, no internet related stuff, no file-I/O (yet, have to add saving/loading settings & position on screen).

Well, here's version 1.0.0 of StringSimilarity. It supports both Lowenstein (distance only, integer value) (Damerau–Levenshtein as it's called in the interwebs) and Jaro-Winkler (distance and proximity, between 0 and 1) algorithms, with optional non-case-sensitive comparison (works for Jaro-Winkler only at the moment).

I'll be posting this sooner or later, and in a somewhat more polished form, as my NANY 2019 entry, for now it's still a bit rough around the edges.

Feedback highly appreciated.

- .NET runtime 4.5.2 or newer (Windows 7 with SP1, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 should all provide that)

- Unpack the zip file in a non-OS protected folder (not in Program Files or Windows directories that is)
- Run the .exe

- Close the application
- Remove all files

- Algorithms sourced on the interwebs

I've been reading up on the subject of string similarity, and it seems that the Jaro-Winkler distance/proximity algorithmw is something that would fit here.

I'll post a tool in a short while.

I'm triggered, but I don't quite understand yet how/what to calculate giving a result between 0 and 1 :huh:

For string-similarity, a technique called 'soundex' was popular, a few decades ago, but I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for?

Screenshot Captor / Re: Thumbnails don't show embedded objects
« on: October 23, 2018, 12:50 PM »
I will probably re-install SC to see what happens then.
That's not going to help if the OS is causing the issue...

You probably have to clean up the thumbnail cache of Windows 7, a known culprit but there are solutions, this link describes a few methods

LaunchBar Commander / Re: One config for x86 and x64
« on: October 23, 2018, 03:45 AM »
Regarding running programs via a script/batch file, an alternative would be to run LBC via batch/script that checks the architecture of the OS and sets an environment variable with the appropriate path for the architecture.

Then preface those executables that can be either 32 or 64 bit with that variable rather than %programfiles%.
Well, as the OP already stated, Windows does a fine job there, it's only 'problematic' when x86 apps are used on an x64 OS where there is also an x64 version of that same app available and in use, and configs should be shared.
I think @mouser is on the right track already.

You're saying you have x86 Notepad++ on x64 Windows? That's quite common as not all npp plugins seem to work properly in an x64 install, so x86 npp is usually the wisest/safest choice.
Guess you'll have to play with the other %programfiles*% environment variables, or run npp from a batch file that validates where the exe is actually found and starts it from there.

Screenshot Captor / Re: Thumbnails don't show embedded objects
« on: October 22, 2018, 08:52 AM »
Normally, after adding objects and saving the result I can see the combined image in my thumbnail view.

(Just tested on Win 7, though I'm normally on Win 10, where it also works as expected.)

What OS/version/release are you on?
And, have you installed the latest Screenshot Captor? (though this hasn't been reported before, AFAIK, neither recent nor in the last couple of years)
Maybe non-standard Video adapter installed?

Hm, Tab Mix Plus is for Firefox pre-v57 only, why do you want to promote a plugin that's not usable to most regular (up-to-date) FF users?

[OT]: This smells a lot like a spam message..., and also it should have gone into the existing thread of (nearly) the same name.
Any admin who agrees with me should IMHO remove this thread and probably the OP too.

As confirmed by Deozaan: it was a spammer. Thanks for fixing that :up:

If it helps, i could show with Delphi Code what i like to have implemented, ...
I hope I didn't give you the impression I'd be working on this, as I'm not. I don't (like to) do Javascript development... :-[

It seems you haven't filed a change request (or 2) in their issue tracker, and developers are known for their lazy response towards email, so maybe you could try that tracker first?
The language is Javascript, and that is quite comprehendable for a Delphi-guy (I say as a former Delphi-dev), it might require a little studying of that Electron library, but that is to be expected.

Doesn't your mouse supplier provide software for that? Most major brands do, AFAIK

« on: October 01, 2018, 01:10 AM »
due small size i wonder how you calculate legitime words and wich languages will it support.
.NET can result in very small .exe files, as most of the code is in the framework, as opposed to Delphi, C++, etc., where all runtime stuff is (usually) linked into the .exe

I add the application as an attachment but it doesn't show up in the post.
You need to attach a .zip (or .7z) file, .exe is not accepted by the forum, AFAICS, and the maximum filesize is ~16 MB, but I guess that's not a problem.

Living Room / Re: Backup Power for USB device -- does it exist?
« on: September 26, 2018, 01:05 AM »
If it loses power momentarily then it will reset to the "application select screen" and require physical interaction to select and launch the correct app.
Are you sure that power is disconnected during boot of the RPi? Could it be that the device is reset via USB initialization commands? In that case, all your 'keep power applied' actions will be in vane...

Living Room / Re: Backup Power for USB device -- does it exist?
« on: September 25, 2018, 03:23 PM »
Some USB devices with the requirement of stable power have an extra powerplug mounted, I assume yours doesn't?

Maybe you can 'sabotage' a Y-cable, by cutting the + power wire on the RPi side, and providing stable power on the other end, besides the data wires, common ground is also a requirement.
