Just hit Win+R and type the one line command in the box, and click OK.
Sidenote: Disadvantage of that, is that the output isn't visible anymore after the command completes, might you need that.

I need a list of the GUIDs in order to begin this process.

Passing a script like .bat, .cmd or .sh as an attachment is most easily done by renaming to .txt (or .log), like originally mentioned. Best is to replace the original file extension, and instruct the recipient to save and rename the file. If they don't know how to handle that, then you've probably addressed the wrong person...
Anticipating on what an AV would catch is a waste of time, you won't know until you've tried.
479  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Help! How do I Convert .SCR Screensaver to and EXE Installer for Windows? on: September 26, 2012, 01:22:19 AM
Packaging something executable like a screensaver into a setup is a perfect job for Inno Setup, (or NSIS if you want a little more difficult scripting). Both are Windows-only. But then the .scr file is also Windows-only Wink
Putting an .scr file into the Windows system directories has some caveats, but it's not too difficult. Read the (on-line) docs and ask any questions in the newsgroups.
480  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: WiX Installer - not really a review on: September 23, 2012, 10:08:42 AM
Again, the need to put the files in manually is incredibly mind numbing and I'm surprised there's not a VS extension to take that pain away.
+1

The documentation mentions this as one of the strong features of WiX, 'full developer control', but it also kind of means that the developer has to be the one developing the installer, while he's adding modules & files to the project, and that is one thing I surely won't leave as a responsibility for the development team I have to work with atm,... huh
481  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: WiX Installer - not really a review on: September 23, 2012, 09:47:01 AM
Is there any compelling reason to use it over Inno Setup or the VS setup project?
That's easy, don't ever use VS setup project! It's so stupid, that an update requires you to un-install before you can update. And the lack of control that wraith808 mentions.

Inno Setup is a good choice for anything that's either created with VS or not with VS, if you work in VS exclusively, then WiX is a good alternative to Inno Setup (but I'm a bit biased about Inno Setup as I've been using that for 13 years now...)

There is a VS plugin for Inno Setup (or used to be, not sure and not really interested), as I use one of the 3rd party IDE's for all my Inno Setup projects.
482  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: change page size for default printer on: September 22, 2012, 12:10:59 PM
This seems to be kind of a difficult setting not many people use anymore, so thats probably why Microsoft hid it a bit tellme

Others have had the same issues, and on this page is a short but complete description of how to set a custom papersize as a printer's default: http://www.zan1011.com/paper.htm
Tried it with a freshly installed LX300+ II driver (Win7), and the new format showed up in the list of available Paper sizes, after I pressed the 'Advanced...' button of the 'Printing preferences...' of that printer.
I'd set the driver's 'Paper Source' to Tractor (and use the tractor-feed if possible), so tearing off the sheet doesn't move the beginning of the next page.

Don't have the hardware, so I can't try if it actually works, and you probably need to tweak the minimum margins to get all output on the paper, but that's just fine-tuning thumbs up

+1, sometimes there seem to be some parts of the text moving/wiggling ohmy and not scrolling, other parts of the text then do not move/wiggle; if the mouse is moved to another area of the page the scroll function returns.
I'm using WaterFox 15, so it seems like a common FireFox 15 issue as both are built from the same codebase Sad
487  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Copy image as JPG to clipboard on: September 12, 2012, 05:40:42 AM
That is quite easy:
- Open Preferences
- On the page 'Image File Format' you can select JPG (if you want jaggies in your screenshots) or PNG (for very nice and compact screenshots)
- On the page 'Post-Capture Options' you can select 'Post Capture - Actions' / 'Copy Image to Clipboard', and set other options to your wishes
488  DonationCoder.com Software / ProcessTamer / Re: Feature Request - Start as a service on: September 11, 2012, 02:55:07 PM
Assuming Windows Vista or 7, you can add a Scheduled task (wizard in Control Panel/Administrative tools) to run at Log on, and specify the program to run. That should avoid the daily UAC prompt.

These issues are fixed now, at both my regular, proxy-'protected', locations Thmbsup
490  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: September 04, 2012, 02:28:27 AM
Hm, this might be proxy-related (simple no-password http proxy) but that has worked before, I also couldn't get the automatic updates where I am now Sad might be some silly network configuration issue.
491  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: September 04, 2012, 02:19:41 AM
I'm not near my irc window atm, so I can't respond soon, I'll check out the site though, check the feature at home, later today, and reply in irc. Thnx!
492  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: September 04, 2012, 01:28:58 AM
    + Added an option to display a location's local time in the titlebar.  You
      can also customise the date/time format string using the standard AutoHotkey
      tokens found here: http://www.autohotkey.com...s/commands/FormatTime.htm
      (Thanks, Alex)
Euhm, what local time is it supposed to display? My local time or the selected location's local time? It seems to display my current local time, independent of the location selected for display on the main screen (I switched locations using the scroll-wheel and from the Locations menu).

Mikhail,

Welcome to Donationcoder!

That looks like a nice start of a new debugger, is it also applicable to other than C++ code?
We've been pleasantly surprised by the BugAid debugger, a few months ago, and it seams to me you're fishing in the same lake Wink
You have a few features different, compared to BugAid, and I hope your product gets to a similar maturity level as theirs (I have no connections whatsoever with each product, the more the merrier cheesy), maybe it would be possible/proficient to combine the use of both!

496  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Copy Contents on: August 29, 2012, 01:47:25 PM
Very interesting tool, but, as usual I'd say smiley, I have a few feature requests:
  • #ask# with several options, resulting in a combobox with the predefined values to choose from (or #select#:item1:item2)
  • date and time formatting options
  • moar #var# predefined variables, like environment vars, system parameters, etc.
  • variable replacement in rtf files
  • additional, configurable, file extensions allowing variable replacement

(when more things come up I'll toss in a new post)
497  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Adding controls smoothly... on: August 28, 2012, 09:33:00 AM
Use the databinding features of .NET, it will lazy-load by default (afaik) when loading lots of controls, and it'll fetch & display 'Just In Time', when using controls like comboboxes etc. Using WPF for the UI might help too.
498  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Create dll file to change title bar of a software forever on: August 27, 2012, 02:54:45 PM
I'm stuck here and don't have the smallest idea how I will continue.
We're stuck without any further application details, and, as I said, often the title is set programmatically, so it would need to be reset if changed by some internal cause/reason/event.
499  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Create dll file to change title bar of a software forever on: August 27, 2012, 01:58:48 AM
A lot of software sets it's Window title dynamically, so one of the solutions suggested by Krishean is probably most effective.
