[OUTDATED] CAFE Mod Beta 5 Development Test 1

New threadover here with a new developer

This is the final update that I will be posting. If somebody wishes to take over development of CAFE Mod, feel free to do so, but I no longer have time to work on it.

New Download Link:
CAFE Mod Beta 5

Description: While active, C.A.F.É. allows the user to associate files to applications on a portable device such as a USB flash drive or an iPod in disk mode, with a standard double click. No modifications will be made to the host system, all monitoring of file launches, all settings and all dependencies are contained in the CAFE Mod directory.

Changes from last beta:
- updated to PAF Specs (thanks to Brian)
- new pretty icon (thanks to Brian)

Todo:
- Make a real help file, or a more useful Instructions.txt
- make Run GUI less ugly
- find a way to refresh the group of monitored windows after deleting one, rather than making the user refresh CAFE to finalize any window deletions

***Hotkeys

Shift + Ctrl + Left Click - Associate Main App with extension
Alt + Ctrl + Left Click - Associate Alternative App with extension
Ctrl + Alt + c - Pause
Alt + Win + m - Configure Mouse settings
Alt + Win + x - Configure Extension settings
Alt + Win + a - Configure App settings
Alt + Win + w - Configure Window settings
Alt + Win + r - Open CAFE Run Dialogue
Shift + Win + Left Click - Add window to monitored window list
Ctrl + Win - Pause CAFE
Escape + c - exit CAFE

Any suggestions are welcome. Please report any bugs here. If you would like to translate the .lng file to another locale, your help will be greatly appreciated and you will be credited in the final release.

hi ZGitRDun8705, i dun mean

hi ZGitRDun8705, i dun mean to hijack this thread but i jus want to ask u for sum help.

i'm trying to make a modified version of DropCloth from Adam @ Lifehacker. i'm new to AHK so i don't know much about it's code and since i've seen how well u've worked with C.A.F.E and how it uses AHK i wanted to ask u for some help.i'm trying to add a feature to add a image as the background instead of a simple solid colour. i'v sucessfully added it to the program but then it's still having some problems and i hav no idea how to fix it.

the first problem is that, if i enable the image option, the next time i open the program, i don't see the image. just the solid colour. to make the image display i must go to settings and click ok. and then the image appears.

the second problem is that if i enable "show in taskbar" and disable it, the image disappears and the solid color shows up again.

edit: Sad also i just found it's having problems loading the image path settings. i hav to close the program then open it again for the image paths to appear. otherwise it just displays the old setting

here's the source code.

i would really appreciate any of help. Biggrin

For starters, it seems that you don't have a way to actually select an image and tell FocusVision where the image is. The value in that edit box defaults to ERROR because no value exists there, and I can't find a way to set the value.

So we don't hijack this thread, contact me at zrhudock {at} adelphia {dot} net

total commander problem is back

this time the problem is more subtle but worse.
when I double click on a file name or press enter, sometimes CAFE runs the wrong file, as if it had "cached" the previously selected file and it hadn't cleared its cache. When it gets into this state I have to exit to "clear its cache". Maybe CAFE doesn't cache anything, I don't know, but this is a description of what it appears doing, not of what it actually does.
A cosmetic issue, some strings are still C.A.F.E. instead of CAFE.

Interesting issue. I'll try to recreate it. Does it do it in the built in Windows Explorer too? As for the strings, all should read C.A.F.E. and the E should have an accent over it.

Edit: I could not recreate the issue in Total Commander. Try redownloading and testing again. I did post a bugfix version once already, maybe you downloaded before it was uploaded.

I have a bugfix version ready, unfortunately the AutoHotkey Compiler seems to not be working now. It either creates a corrupt exe, or an exe twice the size of what it should be. I posted the issue in the bugs section on the AHK forums.

System Menu double click bug

When clicking on the system menu (upper left hand corner icon in title bar) in an explorer window, cafe launces the selected file instead of allowing the window to close properly.

I can't figure out how to fix this one. I'll keep working at it, it's probably adding a simple Click command before processing the data. My time is very limited right now, but i'll get a new version up soon.

German Translation

I translated C.A.F.É. into german

download german translation

During translation I noticed that some strings can't be translated or the given space is to small and the translation can't be shortened:
- "Validate" and "Cancel" under "Double-click Settings"
- "Instructions" and "License" under "Information"
- "helpout" text under "Monitored Window Configuration"

I LOVE CAFE

I've been using this for several months now, and I do love it so.
( I reshacked it to add my own full & empty coffeepot icons Smile )

A question -- is there any way I can get it to stop generating a copy of the GPL license in the main app folder? There is already a copy in a sub-folder, so this is redundant. If I delete it, it grows back the next time I start CAFE (a little spooky, actually.) I made an empty text file with the same name, just to save that *whopping* 21 kb Smile
No, truly, it's not that bad, I just like to get rid of clutter.

Thanks for any advice.

And many thanks for CAFE mod.

sorry...i'll look into that, but as i said in another post, expect it to be at least a month before there's an update. I'm finishing up another semester of school now, so I have exams to worry about.

It regenerates each time because the license is embedded into the exe, and it checks that the file exists and if it doesn't, recreates it. That text file in the app directory is used by the app for the Information > License menu item.

If you wish to delete one of the two, get rid of the one in the source folder...that one shouldn't regenerate and isn't used by the compiled exe.

Good luck on the exams!

it deleted cafeMOD

Did it delete cafeMod "hook, line and sinker", or did it delete a particular component? If a component, see if you can upload a copy of it it the symatec/Norton folks and ask them to check it out.

You might also upload it to:
http://www.virustotal.com/en/indexx.html
and
http://virusscan.jotti.org/

If all the scanners except symatec/Norton find it to be clean you can point that out to them and ask them to verify.

Of course

Of course it's a false positive, as you say you compiled it yourself. The important thing is that Norton is seeing something in there that it's been told is bad.

It is best to inform the Norton people of this so they can modify the detection. Otherwise when this comes out of Beta and into production all the users of Norton will lose it.

Sorry, I don't use Norton or have FP contact information.

C.A.F.E. Mod

Hi ZGitRDun8705, I'm just wondering about your C.A.F.E. Mod. I like it even better than the original one, as I understand it, the GPL doesn't stop you modifying and distributing CAFE Mod (encourages it, really), so is it in the queue for an official release through PortableApps.com?

Thanks again for the great work

Jeff

Wow, it's like you were...

... sitting there waiting for my post, you responded so quickly.

As for bug fixes, the only thing I've noticed is that once in a while, CAFE Mod seems to forget to get involved when I click on a file, it just does the default host action. When I retry, it always seems to work...

To anybody, just for my curiosity, is the difference between an "official PortableApps.com application" and a "full version" posted in the forums, just whether or not it shows up on the Home page and under Applications?

I think that CAFE Mod should be part of the Suite... (preconfigured with the Suite's Apps) and also be posted on Applications' list... Smile

But you need to finish debuging first, of course... Wink

I agree, and disagree

Of course, CAFE Mod should be an official application. It's what changes my USB drive from "a bunch of great software" into "a personal portable computing environment".

But I doubt it'll ever be part of the Suite, because of the configuration required which is more than many non-geek types want to have to worry about.

no

it can be included in the suite already configured, for example, if the suite includes 7zip then CAFE mod comes preconfigured to open portable 7zip extensions... and so on... Smile

It does use relative paths. While it's running they are absolute, but upon closing CAFE, the paths are call converted to be relative.

As for scanning for Apps, I'll look into it. I'd rather get some of the bugs ironed out and do a final release for now.

Ah I didnt noticed about

Ah I didnt noticed about relative paths, cool.

Scanning apps to set its associations would be cool but its ok to get a version out. It could be a seperate exe even.

I didnt notice the double click on icon switches from H to S meaning one way it uses all host apps and the other time it uses the cafe mod.

Would it be possible to rename CafeMod to CafePortable for the sake of having it on the portable apps menu.

As said I think about starting this in a batch with the PortableApps menu.

At the moment Im looking how to build a portable System and I have now selected CAFE, BlackBox (Although I really just need a desktop only thing, but oh well, this is a skinned desktop, but not with icons on the desktop Sad ) and rocketdock very small on top of the screen.

I also have FileZilla run from a small mounted TrueCrypt volume and might expand on my portable setup a little more. (TC dismounts when the app is closed. I also wanna expand my launcher to detect Admin rights and if it finds it not have admin rights a clean version of Filezilla will be launcherd without my ftp settings.

So you see cafe mod is an exxcellent addition to building a portable system. Keep up the good work.

CAFE Mod can't be renamed because there is an original one called CAFE, and both are portable...

CAFE Mod is based in the original French Portable App CAFE from Framakey

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

It takes the settings into its directory for all of the not-really-truly PAFed the right way apps...

Looking forward to the fix

Looking forward to the fix for the working directory bug for Windows Explorer doule-clicked run programs (runs with Cafe's directory instead of it's own)

This has caused me problems before I realised what was going on, now it's just a minor irritation to exit Cafe, then restart it when finished.

Double click the CAFE icon until the letter changes to switch between Portable and normal mode quickly!

There is a pause

There is a pause functionality that can be achieved by double clicking the icon, or using the keyboard shortcut (i don't remember what it is offhand, but it's displayed in the menu when you right click the tray icon)

BTW what does H & S stand for? And indeed what does C, A, F & E stand for?

The H and S are just the

The H and S are just the defaults for active and paused in AutoHotkey. I don't yet have a custom icon for the app, so it uses the standard AHK icon. As for CAFE, I dont really know what it stands for.

C.A.F.E.

C.A.F.E. was originally developed by the French developer Yann Perrin at http://clef.usb.googlepages.com/cafe

C.A.F.E. stands for: CLEF Association Fichier Exécutable

Loosely translated to English: CLEF File Associations to Application

FYI, CLEF is the name of Yann's site.

Found a problem... I think...

A problem I think I found.

When I start an EXE (My portable launcher) without CAFE turned on it works ok, but when I use it with CAFE turned on the working path is incorrectly set somehow although I did not use the CAFE association.

When CAFE is on: Maybe it's my own fault because I didn't do something correct I don't know yet. Directly starting the portartable exe does not start. But I know when launching it through the menu it works ok. When CAFE is off also direct launching the portable.exe works and also launching through the menu.

Maybe I need to fix a small thing concerning the working dir in my launcher...

That's the problem I was

That's the problem I was refering to here https://portableapps.com/node/8690#comment-66819 that you replied with the workaround to, i.e when CAFE is running our launchers, or any other program for that matter, they start with the working/current directory set as CAFE's not their own.

Found this bug while messing around. If you hold down Ctrl + Alt + c , it does this.

Commandline question

Is there a way to quit CAFE from the commandline? I have PStart set to run it on startup, but I'd also like it to close down when I close PStart. I like to keep things as simple as possible. Smile

You can...

Use an NSIS launcher.

KillProcDLL::KillProc "cafe.exe"

And set PStart to launch it on close.

KillProc

Isn't that a dirty shutdown, though? Same as killing the process from Task Manager, so settings could be lost...

Edit: Also, killing the process leaves a phantom icon in the tray. Sad The phantoms disappear if you mouse over them, but they pile up after a while if left alone.

I also use PSTart and I run ejectscript on exit, this will gently close CAFE mod, which I also use... Wink

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin
