Eraser 5.87-beta2 Portable

Postby Joel » Sat Jul 12, 2008 1:15 pm

Hello all,

I've got a Portable version of Eraser set up and compiled for Win32, you can find that here: http://eraser.sourceforge.net/Portable.zip. Extract it and run Eraser.exe, settings will be stored in an INI file in the same directory.

EraserL.exe has been compiled in this release (that's the major step forward.) The other change that has been fixed is the creation of the "Eraser Task Document" New context menu entry. I finally saw it myself and fixed it (it was lurking in the MFC code; grr, I hate MFC with a passion :P)

On another note, I'd like to just say that though I don't seem to be as active as November-December last year I AM still on the project just that I've got academic commitments to fulfill before I am able to do stuff here! So be patient. Eraser 6 is coming on quite well (majority of v5 features have been ported) so the project is not dead!

Enjoy!
Joel

Awesome! The version numbers still say 5.87.1 though ( just cosmetic, but could be confusing).

I'm not sure how to version it, lol. The version number fields don't allow "beta" to appear in the version anywhere...

Ditto to the above.

Re: version numbers, I went with 5.87.2 for my download, so I figure that should do. Or 5.87.0.2 if you need a 4 section version number (a la NSIS or AutoIt). Either way keep up the good work, and thanks again for a static version for us devs!!

Seems to work great, BUT, it still when you right click on a URL, you still don't get 'Erase' in the context menu. Why are URL's an exception, and can the DLL be modified to include URL's ? Thanks ! ! !

Just noticed one more thing... Column sizes still don't 'stick' in the latest beta. Would be a super nice improvement to store windows size and column widths in the INI file. Thanks for listening !

@gbjennings: I'll look at it when I've got more time on my hands.

Whenever I use eraserl.exe it adds the following registry key:

HKCU\Software\Heidi Computers Ltd

Is this going to be fixed as well to make this stealth? Currently, I have to have a batch file that executes the following commands:

..\util\eraserl -recycled -method "DoD" -resultsonerror
%SystemRoot%\system32\reg.exe delete "HKCU\Software\Heidi Computers Ltd" /f

It'd be nice to finally get rid of the registry part...

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Heidi Computers Ltd" is still being created whenever you do an erase of a file or folder via the context menu. The Binary Value entered is "ResultsErasext" Would be GREAT if we could get rid of this. ;-)

You closed the ticket saying it doesn't happen to you. I took video of it happening to me. I can post it if you want to watch it. So, I'm quite sure it creates the key. Assuming your latest build is from:

http://eraser.sourceforge.net/Portable.zip

I don't get any context menu entries with the beta even though they are enabled.

Sorry I was away for a while, working on my exams. I have about a day or so to use for Eraser now.

Crumbles you can just re-open the ticket and post a message about it. It's easier to combine all posts together on Trac (which is for bugs.) I'm on it now.

n8chavez: This portable version will not allow you to use the context menu. This is a portable version; it will not install the context menu handler.

Ok Crumbles I've really found the problem and its fixed, for real. I may be releasing a new beta tomorrow. See how it goes.
