Clean Histories

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

My suggestion for CCleaner (which is great) is that the program be able to clean the file histories for ExamDiff. After comparing files, ExamDiff leaves drop-down histories of the locations of the files.

 

With CCleaner, I'd also like to be able to clear the "Choose a place to save your backup" drop-down list for Windows XP Backup Utility.

 

Thanks. :)

I submitted an entry for ExamDiff Pro only days ago, and it is included in the latest winapp2.ini :)

 

[ExamDiff Pro]

LangSecRef=3024

Detect=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff Pro

Default=True

RegKey1=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff Pro\Recent Left Files

RegKey2=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff Pro\Recent Right Files

 

If you're not running the Pro version, you'll need to adapt the registry paths, but with the help of the above that shouldn't be too hard.

 

BTW, I just noticed there's a small copy and paste error in one line of the winapp2.ini ExamDiff Pro entry:

 

RegKey2=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff Pro\Recent Right File

 

should be:

 

RegKey2=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff Pro\Recent Right Files

 

I already PM'd TwistedMetal, but until the error has been correected, you may want to edit winapp2.ini manually!

Thanks. Would the free version of ExamDiff Pro (ExamDiff) have similar entries (maybe without the "Pro")?

 

So it's not forgotten:

Very likely, but have a look yourself:

 

Open Regedit, and drill down to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PrestoSoft key

Check whether the subkey directly below is called "ExamDiff" without the 'Pro', and whether you have identical Recent Left Files and Recent Right Files subkeys there

 

If so, all you need to do is indeed remove the 'Pro' Part:

 

RegKey1=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff\Recent Left Files

RegKey2=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff\Recent Right Files

 

Keep us posted on what you find. That way we can ask TwistedMetal to add support for that version as well. :)

Yes! "Recent Left Files" and "Recent Right Files" were there.

In that case, close CCleaner should you have it open, then download Winapp2.ini if you haven't already, and place the file in the Program Files\CCLeaner folder.

 

Open the inifile in Notepad and add the following:

 

[ExamDiff]

LangSecRef=3024

Detect=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff

Default=True

RegKey1=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff\Recent Left Files

RegKey2=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff\Recent Right Files

 

 

Save in 'File', then launch CCleaner. You ought to see ExamDiff listed in Applications > Utilities. :)

Found two more lines to add.

 

Here's the final version:

 

[ExamDiff]

LangSecRef=3024

Detect=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff

Default=True

RegKey1=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff\Recent Left Files

RegKey2=HKCU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff\Recent Right Files

RegKey3=HCKU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff\Settings|File 1

RegKey4=HCKU\Software\PrestoSoft\ExamDiff\Settings|File 2
