  1. There is a known conflict with the MSI versions of Microsoft Office. Using the utility breaks the online updates for Microsoft Office. Unfortunately, the author of the utility never fixed this. The Click-to-Run versions of Microsoft Office are not affected.

    I think you misunderstood each other about the build-in entry. SMalik meant the FileKey and not the entry itself.

    I found the correct description of the file:
    https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=31&tab=comments#comment-203981
    I added a DetectOS to the entry now.

    Right, the help files can be deleted without any issue, but this location does not belong to any Microsoft Office version.

    The folder belongs to Microsoft Office 2010 (14.0). Microsoft Office 2010 creates the folder and the files when you open the "Help". I just re-tested it:

    Changed the order of the Filekey's

    Thank you for the revised entries.

    Please use the alphabetical order to avoid errors with Winapp2ool. Thank you!

    Why should it be removed? It's just the cache of the old "(Office) Help Viewer" and doesn't break anything. The cache is always rebuilt.

    ... Changed LangSecRef from 3021 to 3023
    [CyberLink Media Cache *] ...

    Should change the following Cyberlink items to " LangSecRef from 3021 to 3023", eh??
    [CyberLink Install Files *] [CyberLink Downloader *] [CyberLink Crash Files *]

    Yes, thanks for the hint.


  5. Since we are trying to avoid duplicate Keys, I would suggest that we add a separate entry and remove the Keys from all CyberLink entries:

    [CyberLink Common Cache *]
    LangSecRef=3021
    Detect=HKCU\Software\CyberLink
    Default=False
    FileKey1=%AppData%\CyberLink\MediaCache|*.*|RECURSE
    RegKey1=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\DSSharedMediaInfo\SharedInfoCache
    RegKey2=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\MediaCache\Data4
    RegKey3=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\MediaCache\Thumbnail4
    RegKey4=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\MediaCache5\Data5
    RegKey5=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\MediaCache5\Thumbnail5

    I also have never seen any "affect" from RegKeys 1-4.  My MS Notepad always stays the same size that I set it for.  I suggest we just eliminate these 4 keys and the warning message.

    I think just FileKey5 & FileKey6 paths are enough in this entry without a warning.

    Thank you very much for your fast replies.

    ... I have no problem with whatever changes you all make, but I definitely suggest the removing of .ldb files, ...

    Thank you for your fast reply. Ok, then I will change the FileKeys of the entry [Internet Cache *] as mentioned. (This will include the .ldb and .log files from "Default".)

    I meant to remove .log files from "Default" only
    %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default|*.log

    Thanks for your clarification. This 0000X.log file is also a database file. But we could change the FileKeys, as mentioned in my other post: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=298&tab=comments#comment-301811. This should work, because the other subfolders of "User Data" do not contain LevelDB files yet. Is that ok for you?

    Google Chrome profile folder names "Default"

    Yes, after the installation the profile folder name is "Default". However, if you add an additional user, the profile folder name for that new user is "Profile 1" (and that also adds a folder named "System Profile"). If you are using the guest mode, the profile folder name is "Guest Profile".

    Let's restrict that to %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

    it doesn't matter if you're not using Google Chrome, as long as you're using chrome variant and use extension, that cleaning rule will make some extension lose settings...

    I think SMalik means that he wants to protect the profile folder, because there are other (not profile) folders that could contain usual log files (*.log).

    My suggestion would be to rename the existing entry to [LevelDB Logs *] and add a new entry [Logs *] with ExcludeKeys for the profile folders:

    FileKeyX=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*|*.log|RECURSE
    ExcludeKeyX=PATH|%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\Default\|*.*
    ExcludeKeyX=PATH|%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*Profile*\|*.*

    (As far as I know, Google Chrome names the profile folders "Default", "Profile X" or "XYZ Profile".)

    Added *.log

    [Logs *] ...

    We cannot add the *.log files because all the *.log files are not usual log files. They are important database files! (I don't understand why Google chose this file extension for an important database file!?) The usual log files are only LOG and LOG.old.

    Please check the links provided by Winapp2.ini.

    Added *.ldb and MANIFEST-*

    I guess .ldb files keep information about downloads

    [Internet Cache *] ...

    The *.ldb and MANIFEST-* files are also database files.

    But if you are 100% sure that this database only stores traces, we could remove all database related files from the folder, e.g.:

    FileKey14=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|*.ldb;*.log;CURRENT;LOCK;MANIFEST-*;Network Persistent State;Origin Bound Certs

    (If you want to clean a LevelDB, you should always remove all related files.)

    [MS Notepad *]
    LangSecRef=3025
    Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Notepad
    Default=False
    Warning=If Notepad stops remembering your window size settings, this entry will reset it back to the default size.
    RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Notepad|iWindowPosDX
    RegKey2=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Notepad|iWindowPosDY
    RegKey3=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Notepad|iWindowPosX
    RegKey4=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Notepad|iWindowPosY
    RegKey5=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Notepad|replaceString
    RegKey6=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Notepad|searchString

    Are the RegKeys 1-4 really useful? I never had this problem.

    Or should we split the RegKeys into separate entries like [MS Notepad *] and [MS Notepad Window Size*], because not everyone always wants to reset the window size?

    [Installer *] entry should be removed from Google Chrome. If chrome.7z is removed it gives an error when updating Google Chrome the next time.

    Thank you very much for this important note.

    Yes, if the entry breaks the update function, it should be moved to Winapp3.ini.
