Description
KeepUpApp is a tool to keep your applications and services running, where they may be stopping/crashing for undetermined reasons.
This is achieved by continuously checking if the executable or service is still running, and starting the application or service if it's not found running.
KeepUpApp handles 32 bit and 64 bit applications, and services, on the local computer. It currently does not handle applications or services on remote systems.
If any 64 bit applications are configured, a 64 bit instance is extracted from the main executable (if not already found in the current directory), that checks these 64 bit applications.
This extracted 64 bit executable is removed when KeepUpApp is stopped.

KeepUpApp was developed for the N.A.N.Y 2013 event, as organized by the DonationCoder.com forum community

Features
  • Keep applications (32 and/or 64 bit) and services running
  • Supports multiple instances of the same exe, determined by Application-parameters and/or WorkingDir
  • GUI configuration screen
  • Pause temporarily and/or start paused
  • Tray-icon can be hidden, and hidden at startup
  • Extensive command-line support, check the KeepUpApp.readme.txt file
  • Updated on demand if mouser's DCUpdater is installed

Planned Features
  • Add a way to Create a shortcut/registry entry to autostart KeepUpApp when the user logs in
  • Any feature requests...?

Screenshots

Settings screen, 32 bit application:
[attachthumb=1]
This application is ignored for 3 seconds after it has stopped. If not still back active then, it's restarted, and then ignored for 10 seconds to allow processing of any startup procedure/refresh stuff, etc.

Settings screen, 64 bit application:
[attachthumb=2]
This shows how a Command prompt is opened in the configured directory, and as soon as the current directory is changed or the window is closed, a new instance of the Command prompt is started in that location. CMD.exe is a 64 bit application on 64 bit Windows versions...

Settings screen, browse for active application:
[attachthumb=3]
All currently running applications and services are listed. The list isn't actively refreshed during browsing. For some applications and services the working directory or command-line parameters can't be retrieved...

Tray-icon context menu:
[attach=4]

Usage
Installation
  • Install on a (Windows) computer
    • Create a new directory
    • Unpack the zip-file
  • Configure applications or services to monitor
    • Run the (main) executable KeepUpApp.exe
    • Select 'Settings...' from the context menu of the system-tray icon, or use the -set command-line parameter
    • Add applications to the list

Using the Application
After adding some application or service to be monitored, KeepUpApp should be kept active to monitor the state of these applications. In the unforeseen event that such application stops working, either because the user closed it, or it has stopped for some unknown reason, it will be automatically restarted.

Uninstallation
  • Stop KeepUpApp
  • Remove all files from the computer

Known Issues
  • Opening the Applications browser ('...'-button next to Application field) takes some time ohmy

+1 on all Renegade said thumbs up

@Josh, when working with Eclipse, I always use the default format layout (Ctrl-Shift-F), as it's a Java-layout standard on it's own, only I've made line and comment widths a bit wider then the default 80 characters, 160 is usually most optimal.
Aligning variable declarations does make source more readable, so that's an option I tend to enable for projects with larger sources as well.

Try like this: http://stahlworks.com/dev/index.php?tool=split There's an example called "splitting text files by no. of lines"

For that kind of stuff, Stahlworks' Swiss File Knife has been a most excellent choice. Thmbsup

Any reason you are going Intel over AMD?
Simple: Less heat, more speed! thumbs up

@Skwire
As others said: Go for 16 GB of RAM, Windows 7 runs better with that amount.

And: You could do with a somewhat less specced PSU, 500 - 550 Watt should be more than adequate, unless you have 3+ HDD's or a second high-powered graphics adapter to add.

A lot of descent editors, like Notepad++, PsPad and others, support find/replace functions on external files, including subdirectories. Usually you can (optionally) specify regex-like or c-style characters like \t for a <tab>, etc.

Been doing that on both software and hardware issues: Either get some sleep or make a long car-drive (used to drive an hour from work to home, solved a lot of issues during that hour, never had traffic issues, luckily, drove on a highway Wink)

No, it is Visual Basic. Way more powerful than AHK
Be careful with expressions like that, within Office it may be powerful, but outside of that AHK is quite powerful in itself...

(This is not a NANY submission, but just to help with any NANY submissions and beta testing.)

I'd say this is a perfect NANY 2013 entry! thumbs up

Compact, Useful, Easy.

I have some of that code in Clipper/xBase, from about 15+ years ago... speaks Dutch, English (I think) and Russian (with an accent, can't read that myself). Have no time before the weekend to dig that up though.
374  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What went wrong with Linux on the Desktop on: November 29, 2012, 06:05:54 PM
And most of the hassles that used to go with using it are now ancient history.
Most issue-stuff used to be hardware/driver related, and the formerly somewhat awkward setup procedure, that's now fully handled in GUI-mode instead of Character-mode, so much more end-user friendly, and driver-support is excellent these days. thumbs up

Actually.. perhaps we could commission a NANY drawing..
A drawing of of all NANY participants (using their avatars for inspiration), arranged as if they were all in a group photo smiley
+100 for this idea!

Suggestion: A high-res digital version for all participants (use: Desktop background, etc.), and mouser draws the magic lotterynumber for the receiver of the original hand-drawn picture Thmbsup
