Re: start GUI program from non-interactive session

It's a peculiarity of this forum that external links are only accessible if you open them in a new tab or window.

Re: BG kbd - always present key except letter one

Honestly I don't even expect latin letters to be present on every keyboard. Thinking of cyrillic or greek keyboard layouts for example. Maybe you'll have luck with 0-9 which should be at least more likely to exist than A-Z.

Re: File Info Output: Can I Restate Modification Date & Time?

Whoa :shock: Apparently I totally lost track of this thread, sorry.
Is it just me, or is there a lot less of that batch mastery these days? As I think of it, it's been a while since I saw much of it.
I'm under the same impression. Batch is going to get kicked out by PowerShell.

Re: Run 64Bit MSConfig from a batch File

Microsoft documented how file system redirection is implemented:

Maybe this sheds some light on it.

Re: Run 64Bit MSConfig from a batch File

Your batch file should be running in the 64bit cmd.exe process automatically on a 64bit system (unless you do funny business like wrapping it into a 32bit bat2exe thingy, or you changed the PATH environment to look for system tools in the SysWOW64 folder first). Thus, it should also find the right m...

Re: start GUI program from non-interactive session

Thanks for the update. I haven't had any good idea since manyfold things can prevent you to get this working. Just a side note if you want to tell the developer - every GUI process can attach the console window of the parent process in order to make it a console program, too. I find it a bad design ...

Re: hextostr.exe - convert a passed HEX string into a string of characters

Thanks for your feedback @lazna! Yeah, I didn't expect the tool to be much faster than others. The algorithms are more or less always the same. I just tried to be smart by avoiding memory allocations and by using a lookup array. However, the improvement is likely only a few milliseconds in the end. ...

hextostr.exe - convert a passed HEX string into a string of characters

A few days ago @lazna asked for a tool to convert a HEX string to text. So, I wrote a few lines in C. Pass the HEX string as argument to hextostr.exe. The converted text is written to the standard output stream. The lightweight 32 bit executable is highly liberal in what it accepts. Every found pair...

Re: Open, Add Line, Save, Next File Help

I tested the script with your files and it seems to just insert the line as expected. However, I have really no idea what you tried to tell about red to yellow and yellow to red. Did you mean the highlighting that your editor performs? I'm asking because highlighting is always specific to used edito...

Re: How to get the second last folder if the last folder not contain the desired file yet

Reverse the sorting (newest folder first) and bail out when the folder containing the zip file is found. Untested: FOR /F "delims=" %%i IN ('dir "%remotesource%\%plannum%\shared" /b /ad-h /t:c /o-d') DO ( IF EXIST "%remotesource%\%plannum%\shared\%%i\A591\*_%flavr%_*.zip" ( SET "newfld=%%i" GOTO :en...

I'm using JREPL on Win 11 without any problems. If you have issues please elaborate on how to reproduce them.

Re: drag and drop multiple file on a bat file

Something about like that:

Code: Select all

@echo off &setlocal
for %%i in (%*) do start "" notepad %%i
Note that the batch code receives the whole path for each file. At some point (depending on the length of the path) you will exceed the maximum length of a command line if you drop too many files.

Re: how to make bat and txt file

Making the section detection a little more robust (in terms of additional spaces), but also more weak. @echo off &setlocal set "inifile=config.ini" set "section=DelayWakeUp" set "key=TimeUP" setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion set "inSection=" <"!inifile!"
