Winapp2.ini on skates - making it 40 times faster.

Recommended Posts

Ran into a problem Alan on my x86.

 

If I compile the BAT to EXE, I get errors and it tells me to Run As Adminitrator even though I have UAC off and I am Administrator....even happens if I Run As Administrator:

Now that we are up to v11, any changelog or instructions on what has changed or has not....mainly for new users who have not been following.

 

NEW INSTRUCTIONS :-

Forget my initial advice when I launched the first script :rolleyes:

 

There are now almost no requirements other than to :-

download the script and change the extension from TXT to BAT and place in the same folder as Winapp2.ini plus CCleaner.exe (or CCleaner64.exe).

You can use an existing CCleaner folder - even one that has been installed and uses the registry.

 

This improvement is a result of feedback from yourself and others :)

 

The script will create the sub-folder #TRIMMER and do all its work in that folder,

and have no effect upon the parent CCleaner folder or its registry/configuration,

other than to update WinApp2.ini and/or add @_#_7_BAD_FULL.LST if the relevant options are chosen.

 

HINT

I find it useful to have my left finger hover over the letter 'A' ready for the message

YOU MUST NOT "Run Cleaner" - ONLY Click "Analyze"

After Analysis please CLOSE CCleaner so script may continue.

Press any key to continue . . .

Then I am ready to hit 'A' as my choice of "any key to continue" and my left finger continues to hover,

and when CCleaner has launched and the "Analyze" button is active I can hit 'A' again,

then I have to shuffle the mouse to the top right corner to close CCleaner - if only there was a keyboard short cut to close it.

 

Regards

Alan

The first 5 lines of #_H2.TXT should be :-

100001 [ *]

100002 [.Thumbnails*]

100003 [.NET Framework Logs*]

100004 [.NET Reflector*]

100005 [32bit Web Browser*]

 

#_H2.TXT is sorted with an offset of 8 into #_H3.TXT

The first 5 lines of #_H3.TXT should be :-

100001 [ *]

100003 [.NET Framework Logs*]

100004 [.NET Reflector*]

100002 [.Thumbnails*]

100005 [32bit Web Browser*]

 

Do you have exactly the same ?

I believe numbers within the range 100001 through to 100771 are legal on 32 bit machines.

 

Is it possible that BAT to EXE has caused a problem ?

Will my script run correctly if it is not converted to an EXE.

 

I am taking an overdue lunch break but will be back shortly, and will try to add debug code to help

Well YES and NO

100004	[.NET Reflector*]
100002	[.Thumbnails*]
100005	[32bit Web Browser*]
100006	[3GP Video Converter*]

 

Notice the slight shift in [ *]

 

EDIT: a screenshot would be better:

Is it possible that BAT to EXE has caused a problem ?

Will my script run correctly if it is not converted to an EXE.

 

I have done a file comparison on the BAT file and the extracted BAT file when the program runs.

3 Differences...well 2 I really should not count the 1st line where it has @SHIFT

 

 

Line 241

ORG BAT: SET /A PREFIX=%DispSrt%*2

EXTRACTED BAT:SET /A PREFIX=%DispSrt%cmdln%2

 

Line 388

ORG BAT: ECHO !S_X! - !S_o! = !D_X!0 mSec = %*

EXTRACTED BAT: ECHO !S_X! - !S_o! = !D_X!0 mSec = %cmdln%

 

The * is changing to cmdln

 

YES, the unconverted BAT file does work.

In one of the scripts...forgot which one, there was an option for EXCLUDE.TXT??? (not clear anymore).......Is that still an option to use?

How about (though may seem redundant), an brief explaination of what you are doing at each prompt. For instance, what are you Organizing/Sorting? What happens at that stage. Which INI file are you overwriting? I know some may be obvious, but if anyone has not used this before, they may have questions.

 

Suggestion for down the road....How about an online HELP where it does have an FAQ. This way as you do updates or changes, you can change the FAQ within the program. If a user presses (H), it goes into the FAQ section and once finished, you can exit or take him/her to the start.

Sorry. I failed to put my 5 lines in a quote or code box.

I do actually have a deliberate shift to the right on the first item [ *] to absolutely ensure it stays at the top when alpha sorted.

 

For line 241 you could try

SET /A PREFIX=(%DispSrt%) * 2

 

That is the cause of the problem

 

Line 388 is only diagnostic time stamping

and is NOT used by the new SORT procedure that has a much faster implementation at the beginning of the script.

 

I will think some more about line 388.

 

Yes, Exclude still functions.

 

Just rushing out, back later this afternoon.

Alan

SORT #_INI_1.INI > #_SRT_2.INI
REM SET /A PREFIX=%DispSrt%*2	  <<<<<=========
SET /A PREFIX=(%DispSrt%) * 2		  <<<<<=========
CALL :SET_HI #_FIX.INI %LO% to %HI%

Would you please replace the line "SET /A PREFIX ..." with

SET /A PREFIX=%DispSrt%*2
SET /A PREFIx1=(%DispSrt%) * 2
SET /A PREFIx2=2*%DispSrt%
SET /A PREFIx3=!DispSrt!*2
SET /A PREFIx4=2*!DispSrt!
ECHO _%PREFIX%_%PREFIx1%_%PREFIx2%_%PREFIx3%_%PREFIx4%_

That gives me this on my screen

_16_16_16_16_16_

I would like to see the consequences when you have run the result of using the bat/exe converter, so I may choose the most elegant solution.

 

I think the problem with the converter is that instead of expanding %DispSrt% to the value 8, and multiplying by 2,

it instead looks first of all at the tail end of %*2 and it gets seriously "out of whack"

My guesses are that :-

%* means ALL the arguments which follow the invocation of a BAT script of an internal "function", and '2' gets appended, or

the '*' is skipped over and it interprets %*2 as being %2 which is the second argument of any invocation.

 

Would you also please replace the final code block with

:T_N_S
%TOCK%	 = _%*
CALL :T_N
SET /A D_X=!N_X!-!N_o! & SET DWELL=#	!D_X!
ECHO !S_X! - !S_o! = !D_X!0 mSec	 = "%*"
ECHO !S_X! - !S_o! = !D_X!0 mSec	 = _%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 #
GOTO :EOF
:T_N
%TICK%
SET S_o=!S_X! & SET N_o=!N_X! & SET S_X=%TIME%
FOR /F "tokens=1-4 delims=:." %%d in ("%S_X%") do SET /A N_X=%%d*360000+1%%e*6000+1%%f*100+1%%g-610100

This replaces one timing measurement with 3 variants.

 

%TOCK% = _%*

This variant works for me,

 

ECHO !S_X! - !S_o! = !D_X!0 mSec = "%*"

This is the original, but with "quotes" around the %* argument

 

ECHO !S_X! - !S_o! = !D_X!0 mSec = _%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 #

This is similar to using %*

but unfortinately it omits any ',' or '='. as shown at the beginning by

17:37:45.71 - 17:37:42.46 = 3250 mSec = _Found 5729 lines, 0 needed Trim

17:37:45.71 - 17:37:42.46 = 3250 mSec = "Found 5729 lines, 0 needed Trim"

17:37:45.71 - 17:37:42.46 = 3250 mSec = _Found 5729 lines 0 needed Trim #

and at the end by

17:38:23.95 - 17:38:23.69 = 260 mSec = _0 BAD In 70 Det. = #_8_BAD_MINI.LST

17:38:23.95 - 17:38:23.69 = 260 mSec = "0 BAD In 70 Det. = #_8_BAD_MINI.LST"

17:38:23.95 - 17:38:23.69 = 260 mSec = _0 BAD In 70 Det. #_8_BAD_MINI.LST #

I changed the code to this:

REM SET /A PREFIX=(%DispSrt%) * 2
SET /A PREFIX=%DispSrt%*2
SET /A PREFIx1=(%DispSrt%) * 2

SET /A PREFIx3=!DispSrt!*2
SET /A PREFIx4=2*!DispSrt!

Many thanks.

 

As I suspected, the BAT/EXE conversion goes horribly wrong when it encounters %*2 in "SET /A PREFIX=%DispSrt%*2"

but fortunately the 4 alternatives give the correct answers.

 

Please replace the debug code

SET /A PREFIX=%DispSrt%*2
SET /A PREFIx1=(%DispSrt%)*2
SET /A PREFIx2=2*%DispSrt%
SET /A PREFIx3=!DispSrt!*2
SET /A PREFIx4=!DispSrt!*2
ECHO _%PREFIX%_%PREFIx1%_%PREFIx2%_%PREFIx3%_%PREFIx4%_

with the single line

SET /A PREFIX=!DispSrt!*2

That should allow SORT to function properly.

 

I will come back later, hopefully with a fix for the diagnostic time stamp messages.

Alan

 

------------- Explanation of what went wrong - Optional reading matter ----------------

 

In the middle of your last screen capture is this

12:28:00.20 - 12:27:54.56 = 5640 mSec = I/P #_FIX.INI O/P indexed #_INI_1.INI

Invalid number. Numeric constants are either decimal (17),

hexadecimal (0x11), or octal (021).

Look for CORRUPTION in ERROR.LST

Unexpected content difference between sorted #_FIX.INI and #_#_WINAPP2.INI

 

WHAT WONDERFUL FORUM SOFTWARE

:o As soon as I put the above in a quote box or a code box then it becomes one continuous linePerhaps it is interpreting 12:28:00.20 as some sort of I.P. Address :unsure:

 

As I was saying 5640 mSec were spent reading #_FIX.INI and writing #_INI_1.INI

 

#_FIX.INI is 184 KB (188,747 bytes)

and the first two and a bit entries are :-

100003 100027 ]LangSecRef=3021

 

That file is sorted (indices rule supreme) to #_SRT_2.INI size 273 KB (280,411 bytes)

and the first two and a bit entries are :-

100002 100020 ][.NET Framework Logs*]

Then you show

12:28:03.58 - 12:28:00.20 = 3380 mSec = I/P=#_SRT_2.INI O/P #_#_WINAPP2.INI

That is when #_SRT_2.INI O/P was read in and #_#_WINAPP2.INI was written out one line at a time.

There is "special magic" to exclude the first 16 character from each line with this instruction

ECHO.!LN:~%PREFIX%!

Unfortunately because BAT/EXE caused a malfunction with

SET /A PREFIX=%DispSrt%*2

no characters were excluded, hence you got the error report

Size ERROR #_FIX.INI=188747, #_#_WINAPP2.INI=280411

Would you please insert between

SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion
CD /D %~dp0 & REM All files are here, not at stupid "Run As Administrator" default %windir%\

this DEBUG code

CALL :T_N
ping -w 40 -n 2 127.0.0.1 > nul
CALL :T_N_S Test 1 . , = % ! # X

%TICK%
ping -w 40 -n 2 127.0.0.1 > nul
%TOCK%	 = _Test 2 . , = % ! # Y

PAUSE
EXIT /B

And then run and post result.

 

I get the following :-

22:02:39.92 - 22:02:38.88  = 1040 mSec  = _Test 1 . , =   # X
22:02:39.93 - 22:02:38.88  = 1050 mSec  = "Test 1 . , =   # X"
22:02:39.93 - 22:02:38.88  = 1050 mSec  = _Test 1 . # X	 #
22:02:40.96 - 22:02:39.93  = 1030 mSec  = _Test 2 . , =   # Y
Press any key to continue . . .

E:\T\CCleaner\New\T11>

 

I suspect that you will have success with the last of the four messages, because

 

The first of the four messages is delivered via CALL T_N_S to code that invokes %TOCK% _%*

and that works for me but not for you

The last of the four messages does not CALL any code, but directly invokes %TOCK%

and that is what gave you time stamps with explanatory text at :-

WinApp2.ini Entry Semi-AlphaNumeric Sequence :- Chaos Factor 79

12:27:54.56 - 12:27:53.63 = 930 mSec = I/P #_H3.TXT O/P NUL + HD_nnnn Array

12:28:00.20 - 12:27:54.56 = 5640 mSec = I/P #_FIX.INI O/P indexed #_INI_1.INI

 

If this works then I will replace all :T_N and :T_N_S code with %TICK% and %TOCK%.

That is a cleanup improvement I had thought of but deferred on the grounds that it is easier to fix one thing at a time,

but when Push comes to Shove then cherished principles take a backseat.

Alan

You did good.

You got the result I hoped for.

 

My new Tick Tock executable variables are not only much faster than the "CALL :T_N_S" technique,

but they fortuitously preserve any , and = characters that are embedded in a text string,

as is shown by the fourth message.

 

I will be back :)

Please test and advise results.

I am hoping all is well, and that you will see each time stamp now concludes with a comment upon what was happening.

I show below the results I obtain..

I have not changed the name because the normal functionality is the same.

To avoid confusion with original TRIM_11 and any final release,

I have attached this as TRIM.TXT, which can be downloaded and renamed as either TRIM.BAT or TRIM.CMD

I attach Trim_12.txt, ready for download and rename and use as Trim_12.bat (or Trim_12.cmd)

 

This improves on Trim_11 in two aspects :-

 

1. I have changed some code to avoid confusing a BAT to EXE converter.

Thanks to further P.M. exchanges with and testing by Tr3bg0D a converted EXE now gives the same results as the original BAT ;

 

2. If there is any warning about the Alphabetic Organized file being a different size or having different content from the input file,

then the code refrains from offering to over-write the downloaded WinApp2.ini.

This re-instates my original design which I cancelled when I found spurious False Alarms arose from anomalies in Windows Sort.exe.

I now have mastery over the anomaly so False Alarms no longer happen

 

3. I now create CCleaner.ini with an absolutely brand new "Update= ..." TimeStamp.

That is POSSIBLY fooling CCleaner.exe into thinking that it is so up to date that it does not waste time checking for any later version.

It is CERTAINLY (thus far) resulting in much faster operation,

Previously there was often a 21 second delay between "Hit any key" and the first timed debug message after CCleaner was eventually closed,

but this is now consistently down to 6 or 7 Seconds.

Alan

Unless you or others find a bug, I have no further improvements in mind.

 

Thanks for all your testing and comments.

 

I wanted to get WinApp2.ini SORTED before I even started on TRIM_*,

but my first attempts took far too long in execution - many minutes - so very long I thought that CMD.EXE had died.

So I gave up and focussed on getting TRIM to remove the entries that did not apply to a given computer.

 

It was only a few weeks ago that I realised why my first attempt was too slow.

I was reading the entire WinApp2.ini file one line at a time, and writing each line as a new variable in a double indexed array of variables,

and on completion of reading the input file I sorted the variables in memory and wrote as the output.

 

It worked beautifully as a concept, and for a cut-down WinApp2.ini with only one dozen entries,

but it turns out that to write a new variable with the next line causes CMD.EXE to re-write all its variables in memory,

so when the last line of 5729 lines is read,

there are 5728 linesof text = almost 188727 bytes of 5728 text lines to be re-written.

The environment memory space is re-written 5729 times altogether, and the actual amount increases with each line.

It is a square law - I would never have tried had I known this before.

 

My new approach involves a much smaller array of 781 variables HD_100001 through to HD_100781,

and this is array is removed from RAM once double indices have been added to WinApp2.ini to create #_INI_1.INI,

and #_INI_1.INI is then sorted on the indices and the text re-written - job done.

 

Regards

Alan

OK then, we have the official v1.12 ;)

 

BTW, are you going to do a write up on what you can do with this like with EXCLUSIONS.TXT and prob others I have forgotten.

 

I will send you the EXE shortly. ;)

This still works as previously with exclusions.txt.

The only change to "inclusions" is that #_8_BAD_MINI.LST etc is no longer copied to the parent.

The person WinApp2.ini has done a good job of fixing the "Volatile Detections" and @_#_7_BAD_FULL.LST only has 7 volatiles for the whole set of 780 entries.

Alan....I have a request/suggestion

 

I found that i needed to just make sure the INI file was SORTED or SORT the INI file and go no further. Is there an update you can make to avaoid a CTRL/C to break the process?

I counter your request with an alternative.

There is a guy with so much spare time he is constantly changing hats - lets ask him to sort the file before it gets posted :D

 

A quick possibility for you is to change one line of code, at line 50.

Original :-

IF %TRIM_NAME%==#_FIX.INI CALL :Sort_INI #_H1.TXT #_H2.TXT

Suggested (and untested) :-

IF %TRIM_NAME%==#_FIX.INI ( CALL :Sort_INI #_H1.TXT #_H2.TXT & EXIT /B )

This change should cause the script to terminate immediately after sorting and replacing the original file.

 

Please let me know if this is good for you.

Right now a am quite busy beating a new Windows installation into submission :lol:
