  1. Thanks, Gsar looks more easy, but I couldn't get it to work with search strings with a comma, but that is what I need. It doesn't work for a string containing a comma and text, like 0,win. I tried to put it in quotes, but no luck. Then I replaced it with ASCII or Hex-Code it just displays one match, but there are much more. Does anybody know a solution for that or another tool?
  2. Hi, I want to replace an expression in a file with another expression on a command line. Example prog.exe <string1> <string2> <filename> Does anyone know such a tool?
  3. @mazin Thanks for your help that works great! @Br4tt3 What's so funny about that name in Swedish? What does it sounds like?
  4. I thought that codes only work in inf files, but not in ini files??? I'll try it anyway, thanks.
  5. Hi, I have a ini file with a hardcoded setup destination like path=c:\bla. Is it possible to use variables like %systemdrive% for ini files? Or can I update ini files via a batch file? I would really appreciate a solution for that
  6. The following commands won't work dir %userprofile%\recent\*.* del %userprofile%\recent\*.* The following error is displayed The system cannot find the path specified. However when I use cd %userprofile%\recent it changes to my profile folder and in the subfolder recent where I can use the DEL command My profile doesn't contain any special characters, just a dot in the profile name. Has someone a solution for this?
  7. Hi there, I want to create a cascaded context menu in Windows Explorer (one entry that opens subkeys if you click on it). I'm familiar how to create a normal context menu item via the registry (<filetype>\shell\<Task>\command). For example I want to open a jpg file with several different programs, lets say with Program A and Program B. I can create for each program an entry like jpegfile\shell\ProgA\command but then the entries are below each other and not cascaded. I know I can use Open with, but that is not what I want. I would like to create my own entries. How can I do that.
  8. Thanks, here is the respective registry key Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;When taskbar grouping is enabled, this setting will prevent the buttons from collapsing ;if you don't have more than 99 windows of the same type opened [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "TaskbarGroupSize"=dword:00000063
  9. Under Start-->Settings-->Taskbar and Start Menu I have Group similiar taskbar buttons enabled. However when the taskbar gets to crowded, similiar taskbar buttons will be piled up and a number appears. Now you have to click the group and then again the correct window. Is it possible to stop the buttons from piling up and still have the same buttons grouped?
  10. @Andromeda43 The command start offers some options that are quite useful, especially /wait.
  11. It just works. According to Sonic, it shouldn't work, but it does. I also tried start "Test" "c:\my prog\prog.exe" That works, too. Just try it yourself.
  12. Thanks Bezalel. I thought REG was only for adding registry entries. I will try that.
  13. Thanks, but I can't it get to work. I checked the help and tried this: shortcut -s -t D:\Progs\Test\test.exe -n Test -d h:\prog-w2k\system -i D:\Progs\Test\test.exe -x 0 -l test.log I put shortcut.exe in c:\temp and execute it from there via a cmd file and get the following error: Error: unable to find D:\Progs\Test\test.lnk Are there maybe some examples or further documentation?
  14. Thanks Delprat, that will do the trick.
  15. Hello, when I open Administrative Tools --> Services there are two tabs at the bottom of the window Extended and Standard. I don't want the Extended tab, just the standard view. But whenever I switch to Standard and close Services and reopen it, Extended is selected. How can I change that?
  16. Hello, Is there a program / script or other method to save specific registry entries to a reg file. For example I want to save the following program settings [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Program1\Settings] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Program2\User] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Program3\Preferences] and so on. Now I have to go to each key and export each of them in a reg file. Is there a way to give a program / script the registry entries and save them as a reg-file (or multiples)?

  17. Hello, how can I create lnk files via script or command? Say I want to create a lnk file which points to C:\Prog\Prog.exe. Normally I have to do it manually by right clicking on Prog.exe and select Create Shortcut. 1.) Can this be done by a script or command? 2.) Is it possible to use system variables like %systemdrive& instead of fixed paths?
  18. Hello, I want to execute programs from a batch file. Now there are programs in folders with spaces. I tried this start "c:\my prog\prog.exe" but the start command doesn't like ". I also tried to replace the path by a variable, but still no luck. Has anyone a solution to this? Title edited -- Please, use [TAGS] in your topic's title. --Sonic
  19. Hello, I'm searching for a addin / script / software that can convert multiple Excel files (xls) to Text files (txt). It should be freeware if possible.
