Re: BG kbd - always present key except letter one

I'd expect every keyboard to have a spacebar and an enter button

A little late to the party, but NTFS also has the concept of file streams so you can store the data in a different stream that won't be visible. I'm actually surprised that malware hasn't used this as an exploit yet...
Mostly because alternate data streams get cleared when you download the file

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.
It's definitely moved to more of a hobby language from what I've seen, but there are still a couple of fairly active communities on Reddit and Discord.

Most likely a false positive. Kaspersky didn't alert me about anything.

Re: Geometry DOS

I'd appreciate on-screen controls somewhere, even for menu navigation. It seems like half the time it wants me to use the mouse and the other half I need to use spacebar. This definitely seems like the sort of thing I'd be interested in, I just can't figure out how to start it. (Also, your screensho...

Re: batch file code delete stubborn file ?

Probably some combination of the TAKEOWN and ICACLS commands, but there's probably a very good reason why you aren't able to delete that file.

Re: Searching a string within a text file

I still don't understand what caused the code I posted to hang.

Re: Key Authorization for Batch Program

Batch is an interpreted language, so any obfuscation has to eventually get undone so that the command prompt can actually run the code. Making the code read-only won't help either, since people can just copy and paste the code into another instance of Notepad. That said, you can certainly get the ou...

Re: Finding Multiple Strings in Multiple Files and outputting a report showing which files contained which strings

XLSX is specifically a zip of XML files, so if you're going to try and parse them in a language that isn't vbscript, you're going to have a really bad time. I cannot discourage this strongly enough.

Re: Wmic.exe

Like Bitsadmin, wmic has been "deprecated" for years now. I highly doubt it's going anywhere; if nothing else, Microsoft prioritizes backwards compatibility. That's the reason Windows 11 still even has batch even though they've been trying to push PowerShell ever since it was created.

Re: Why this if statement not working properly?

Everything inside of your code block gets read in all at once, so the interpreter has to know where qemu-img is just in case it needs that information.

Re: Why this if statement not working properly?

There is no program called qemu-img in any of the folders that are listed when you run echo %PATH%.

Try using the full path to qemu-img.exe in your script. Use double quotes if you've got spaces in the path.

Re: Find text string in TXT hosted on Server.

You'd have to install it separately, but Windows XP and 7 are wildly out of date and shouldn't be used.
