RunOperaTen available for download
« on: September 11, 2009, 04:21:23 PM »
RunOperaTen is a command line utility to launch Opera 10 and also encrypt the Opera Forms info when Opera is not running.  Any command line params are passed along to Opera.  So RunOperaTen is compatible with my Selector utility.

RunOperaTen will not work with previous versions of Opera.. that's why Ten is stuck on the end of the name.  Older versions of Opera used a different .ini file for form fill(Wand as it was called then) info.

The download link is near the bottom of this page:
http://www.favessoft.com/downloads.html

The zip includes a Readme.  Basically the idea is to avoid the Forms info sitting in "operaprefs.ini" in clear text.  If you have a sophisticated form filler then this is not for you.  It's just a convenience utility for those like myself who like to use Opera Forms fill, but don't like the personal info sitting in the Opera ini file in clear text when that can easily be avoided.

Once set up, when you launch RunOperaTen it simply decrypts the [Personal Info] section of "runoperprefs.ini" file, launches Opera, and waits for Opera to close.  Then it encrypts that [Personal Info] section of the .ini file again.  All there is to it.

See the included Readme.txt for particulars.
