NANY 2014 Release - Earl
« on: December 26, 2013, 08:20:13 PM »
NANY 2014 Entry Information

Application Name Earl
Supported OSes Windows XP and later
Web Page Website
Download Link Download
Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Earl is a commandline application that allows you to convert .URL files into standard Window shortcut files (.LNK). This can be helpful if you use an application that doesn’t understand .URL files but does understand standard Windows shortcuts. For instance, some icon docks won’t handle a .URL file dropped on them, but can work with regular Windows shortcuts.  If you're looking to convert Steam .URL files, please use my SteamURLConverter application instead.

Usage

Installation
Download the zip file and extract its contents into a new folder.  Run Earl.exe to start the application.

  • Drag & drop a .URL file onto the executable.
  • A standard Windows shortcut file will be created in the same directory as the .URL file.
  • Alternately, this app can add a shortcut to your “Send to” folder so you can process multiple .URL files by using the “Send to” option in your right-click menu.

Uninstallation
Delete the folder you unzipped it to.  The application doesn't write any of its settings to the registry.
