That sounds good to me, two

That sounds good to me, two splashes seems a bit redundant.

OK

BTW, I think you should be keeping the splash up longer, I could barely see it when it loaded on my PC. Nice work on this.

useless

Flagging an app as 'tested' is not very useful as long as you don't deliver the results of your tests.

tested = good?

We'd pretty much assume that if no problems are reported and an app is tested than there's no problems encountered...

though it might be helpful to know _WHAT_ was tested and worked?

Well

If it works well doesn't really clarify anything. Did you try it on a different comp? Did it leave any settings behind? Did the installer work properly those are all things that were working for. Just because it seems to work okay doesn't mean it's working perfectly. On you next test please try to give a little more information about how you tested and what the results were. No offence but the statement *Tinker Tested* really isn't of much use.

I checked out

I checked out the Other\Source\Readme.txt and saw..
The Keyfinder Portable Launcher allows you to run Task Coach from a removable drive...
I don't know if it should say that.
I'm going to try it on some other computers when I have time...

lol

LOL no it shouldn't say that. That's the kind of stuff that needs to be reported and if it leaves anything behind registry or otherwise. That kind of stuff. And testing on more than one computer is definately a pain so a better alternative if you want is a virtual machine. My favorite is this one. It's open source and all that good stuff. So you can test on more than one machine without changing desks. Thanks for testing!

true that... i forgot

Jacob,

You're right, I forget that we are more interested in how it works in the PortableApps format than the program working. I often forget that when testing. I'll remember to report those results next time I test an app too!

Thanks,

Thanks

It's always appreciated when people test the apps. It's good to do a little testing on the main app and if there are errors to report them to their maker. Just remember most of us didn't make the apps we just made the launchers so we have no control of any of the actual program's bugs. Thanks for testing the apps.

I tried this out on my work

I tried this out on my work computer (Windows XP SP3) and my laptop (also WinXP SP3) and it works flawlessly as far as I can tell, but I don't know where to look to see if it leaves anything behind. Any help in that area would be greatly appreciated. I use a lot of these Beta programs (some every day) and can let you know if the programs themselves perform properly. I'd like to be a little more help than that if I can though.

This version will have several new serial keys and will also decrypt Adobe cs2 serial keys...

We try to be %100 accurate...

Write Testing

How would I go about monitoring the files this program writes to, to see if it leaves anything behind? I tried using Process Monitor and filtering for keyfinder and the CreateFile access, except CreateFile also seems to include read access as I get many entries for system files. Googling for methods of seeing what a program writes to doesn't turn up much other than Process Monitor and the old File Mon, and going through the code line by line for file operations.

EDIT: The only files I know it creates for sure are prefetch files, but I don't know if you can prevent windows from creating those.

Can't get it to launch from the Portable Apps menu.

I have tried this on a Vista Business (Sp1) as well as a XP Pro (Sp3).
I am not able to get it to launch from the PortableApps menu.
I can get it to launch if I explore to the drive into the PortableApps\KeyFinderPortable\ folder.

just a note, this keyfinder

just a note, this keyfinder won't work for windows 7 or office 10 keys to be recovered.
An alternative I found for portable use is this one:

Outdated.

I've taken over this project due to inactivity. My thread can be found here.

Though, MJB Keyfinder has been forked and I will instead be updating Enchanted Keyfinder when it has its first release.

Enchanted Keyfinder is Released

I checked out the SourceForge link you had posted and found out there is a new release (0.20) of Enchanted Keyfinder.
One thing I always liked about the Keyfinder was the ability to add programs to the cfg file and get their serial numbers.

Where are you looking?

As far as I can see, the latest "release" is still 2.0.8 which is the version of the original program that they picked up.

You're Right

Must be tired eyes...I looked at 2.0.8 and read it as 0.20.
Sorry for the confusion.

Keyfinder Beta

I took over the open source keyfinder project on sourceforge.

Currently the keyfinder is completely portable with all settings saved in an INI file.

I don't know if anyone has plans of turning it into a portable app but now it is more than possible.

No registry entries at all.

What's a signature?

Awesome.

I took over the portable package of this (here), and I was actually waiting for you to make a release under the new name. I'll update my package tonight or tomorrow. Thank you for posting, by the way.
