Winapp2.ini

Specific Program Requesting

Recommended Posts

Feel free to tell me no :lol:

 

Rather than have people request specific programs to be added, only to have their requests overlooked, or be told no for whatever reason, ect and have their program continue to be unsupported, I think we should start a custom winapp2.ini entry thread. This wouldn't be too much work to do for most active users, and the person who is requesting has the benefeit of their program being supported for themselves, as well as any future person who may come request that program.

 

As stated here:

 

 

DISCLAIMER

 

These entries are not supported by Piriform. These entries have not been tested by the maker of CCleaner. Use these at your own risk, these entries were created and tested by users of the CCleaner Forum. Piriform can not be held responsible for any action that these entries do.

 

 

That being said, read this for detailed information on how to go about making your own entries (and feel free to submit any you do make, as long as they're not in the thread maintained by TwistedMetal

 

I personally feel this should reduce the amount of posts (a trend my threads in this sub forum seem to follow) that are made requesting specific programs which often aren't added, as well as consolidating any posts into a single thread, reducing the clutter.

 

Protocol for requesting a winapp2.ini entry*:

 

  • Name of program.
  • Appropriate category1
  • Path to the programs executable.
  • Path of files to be cleaned.2
  • Any possible registry keys to be cleaned.

* Please do not request things with user-specific paths, such as windows live messenger, these are not as easy to write and will not be very beneficial to the idea of this thread, in that the general idea of the thread is to help the majority of people clean their specific files.

 

1: category meaning "langsecref"

2:If the program is freeware, I'm willing to download it and find the paths.

 

  • 3021 = Applications
  • 3022 = Internet
  • 3023 = Multimedia
  • 3024 = Utilities
  • 3025 = Windows

Again, feel free to toss a "NO" right here if the mods don't think this is a useful thread, I just thought it'd help ease the amount of specific program requests.

Please do not request things with user-specific paths

That and any programs that haven't been installed into their default location recommended by the installer. Also for programs that don't have an installer.

Just a suggestion and that is add the comments for those programs with them underneath the program name/header, should be slightly less confusing.

 

Example:

[~VLC Media Player Album Art]
;clears album art that VLC downloads

Please have another look at things starting with

%Program

 

This looks wrong

[~CleanMyPC Registry Cleaner (Backups)]
LangSecRef=3024
DectectFile=%Program Files%\CleanMyPC\Registry Cleaner\rcleaner.exe
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles(x86)\CleanMyPC\Registry Cleaner\rcleaner.exe
Default=True
FileKey1=%Program Files%\CleanMyPC\Registry Cleaner\UndoCenter|*.*

 

Normal system variables include %ProgramFiles% but not %Program Files%

and %ProgramFiles(x86) seems to need a trailing '%'

 

These apparent errors start at the entry for [~Anki Backups]

and copy/paste there-after has only made things worse ! !

Good catch. Nothing like testing stuff before posting it!

I fixed 'em, it 'cause I posted them from an old bogged up backup I had always good to check before posting though :lol:

 

Edit: the weird thing is, even missing some of the %, they still worked. My sauerbraten directory is C:\Program Files(x86) and it was cleaning it. Huh :huh:

 

Perhaps one of the devs could tell us whether of not using %ProgramFiles% scans both x:\Program Files and x:\Program Files(x86) because from the behavior I observed, it seems this is the case.

I just noticed this, I changed everything to include comments and have them under the program name
