Software for create folders from an eligible list of folders

I refer explicitely to select one, two or more folders from a list selecting with the keys shift or control .

In web is usual to find scripts for create folders from a txt file, a csv file or an excel file. May be others too. (an ini file by example).

I have found some interesting software for similar purposes. One of them from Skwire . A program that works wonderfully under windows 8.1 at the present time.

Text 2 Folders Create folders based on a simple text file.

The main window shows the possibility to select a txt file from the pc or a configurable list .

This program don't show a list of eligible folder names. Yo have to select the list simply.

Another interesting program to create folders is XMD

Spoiler
XMD - eXtended Make Directory. (1.0.2)
A multipurpose tool for making directories.


OVERVIEW
========

XMD is a multi purpose tool for make directories in different ways: It allow
create several directories (or subdirectories) in one operation, directories
with names stored in a text file or from clipboard, sequential directories, also
is possible to use predefined variables (for time and misc.) and many many more.



KEY FEATURES
============
· Allow us create multiple directories in one step. (separates by pipeline | ).  i.e: test1|test2
· Allow us create directories with multiple levels deep. i.e: c:\test1\sub1\sub2.
· Allow create directories with absolute paths, relative paths and UNC paths.
· Allow the use of pseudo-variables (Time, Clipboard, misc.)
· New directories created, can be opened automatically in a new window from Explorer.
· List of (20) last created directories (folders).
· Custom templates can be defined.
· Custom suggested name by default for make new directories.
· Allow us to make directories from names in ClipBoard.
· Tool for make sequential directories (batch mode).
· Tool for load names from a text file.
· Command line parameters.
· Shell integration for files and folders.
· Portable (except for shell integration). USB sticks.
· Easy integration with the file manager Total Commander.


This program is downloable at the present time from a distributor. The programmer seems an abandoned web (José Manuel Breto) breto.net
I have tested the program under windows 8.1 and goes well.
But don't have an eligible list with multiple possible selection with the keys shift and control.

The rest of the software examined is easily founded in web by create folder from a txt file, csv file and so on....

I hope someone can find a functional and free version of creating folders from an eligible list.

Best Regards

Just write one yourself (and don't forget to make it public afterwards)...

AutoIt, AutoHotkey, PureBasic, etc., etc., etc.

I am not a programmer, but I will keep trying and if I get an answer I will make it public afterwards as you suggest.  :-*

PureBasic ? a good beginning to try.

Edited :
PureBasic  seems to me a basic language adaptation with a new licensed software.

Best Regards

Nobody suggested that you make an answer public (while I can only hope that people finally stop to support laziness) *sigh*

Understood.
It will take a very long time if I don't receive any help, but I will keep trying forever.
 :P

Why don't you try to accomplish something on your own (like... forever)?

That would actually be a real improvement...

People come here for help.  I don't think we want to discourage nor disparage them.  I'd think if you don't want to help, then just ignore them.

Finally I have found Fayax Folder Maker and recovered the old listas.exe in C language this last one.
Both goes well under windows 8.1
The first one seems abandoned from http://www.fe9.org/ , but is downloable from https://sourceforge....ts/fayaxfoldermaker/ . Really is not abandoned, but don't seems in develop and the program itself propose the above disfunctional link.
A good program to create folder trees is listas.exe. Just seems to me is deprecated and have dissapeared from web. Is portable and needs an ini file. I have adapted sometimes a bat file to launch from everywhere.
I upload the exe and one ini file to modify when needed. I usually use this script in creating subfolders for my projects.

In other cases I was using this script but now goes disfunctional under windows 8.1 so I have to change.
I will put my attemps to solve with external help (when not ignored) and the final solution adopted.

Best Regards

Later i will try to insert the exe file. I don't know how to do but I will revise everything.
 :-*

So I have now some scripts to try . I choose Skwire for obvious reasons.
And goes well !
I have adapted in this way.
a) execute the wonderful Skwire script from an ahk script with my prefer hotkey (win + z  or control+shift+z )
b) use autotext from Phrase Express inside the skwire window script to select a group of folders of my election.

I put a screenshot to see this.

About the disfunctional script I say this : http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=45950.0
