#Develop v0.92 [3.2M] W9x/2k FREE I don't want to spend a lot of money to buy the new Visual Studio .Net because I just don't program enough to make it worth the expense. #Develop is an open source development environment for creating C# and VB.net projects. This application feels just like you are coding in Visual Studio and it even has syntax-highlighting. With #Develop you can even write ASP.NET, ADO.NET, XML, Java and HTML code. #Develop is quite impressive and I can truthfully say that I am surprised that it has been released as open source. I recommend that if you need to do some .net coding that you save your money on Visual Studio .net and give #Develop a try.

AceMoney v2.1.3 [470k] W9x/2k/XP FREE {Manage your checkbook)  This application can import/export the popular QIF file format used by many online banks and Quicken. AceMoney is free (which is already a bonus in my book), but on top of that you can use this application to track your spending habits to see where all the money goes. All you have to do is set up your various accounts and then enter your bills. You can configure everything right down to the types of accounts that are available, or the categories you have to choose from when entering information regarding your spending. AceMoney can give you a report whether in graph or table form. I won't say that AceMoney is the best account manager that I have seen, as I think the ones you can buy in the store have more features, but I will say that this is the best free account manager that I have ever seen and it definitely beats not having one at all. http://www.mechcad.net/products/acemoney/

You can also search for text inside of documents using this application. Agent Ransack integrates into the Windows Find menu, so it can easily replace the File Search function included with Windows.Visit Site-Screenshots-More Info-Download

AnyEdit v2.0 Beta 1.0 [1.1M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.anyedit.org/

{Development environment} AnyEdit sounds like a text editor program, but it isn't. It's an open source integrated development environment (IDE) for building applications on the Win32 platform, and it's customizable for any language. The program helps programmers compile and execute code, reuse blocks of code, and maintain code structure. AnyEdit itself is customizable, including the menus, text, images, and editor components. It supports syntax highlighting for HTML, CSS, PHP, ASP, PERL, C, C++, Java, JavaScript, JSP, and VBScript. PlugIns can be added to extend the functionality of the program.

AppSwat for Win9x/Mill/Win2k (8 kb) AppSwat lets you kill any application process unconditionally.

Use AppSwat to remove the crashed application without restarting [Download]
ARen v1.06 [1.1M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.hulubulu.dk/eng/software.php?mode=show&obj=2

{Batch renamer} This utility from Denmark provides options for renaming many files at one time. When I take photos with my digital camera, it uses the "IMG_####.JPG" naming convention. Not very meaningful, is it? I usually download a batch of photos from a specific event, so having the files renamed to "eventname_dateincrementalnumber.jpg" would help. A nice feature is the ability to view the renaming before pursuing the change. Not only does it do renaming, but also new case (lower, upper, mixed, etc.), remove, list, replace, add, and attributes. You can save the new naming pattern for later use. I would prefer to use incremental letters as opposed to numbers, but for the price - I've no complaints.

Atlantis Nova v1.0.0.65 [900k] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.rssol.com/en/

{Word processor} If you don't know MS Word like the back of your hand, then you'd almost never realize you're not using it when running Atlantis Nova. Unlike the monopolized word processor, Atlantis is compact and can convert graphical images. Its features are too numerous to mention. Immediately noticeable differences include the hot calculator, which performs mathematical calculations, and getting the document statistics with one click (I love this). Also unique is the clippy bank, a feature similar to the clipboard for adding or removing data. The learning curve for using Atlantis Nova is small for anyone who has used MS Word. It didn't feel awkward or new to try it out. This may be the solution for those with zero or small budgets. The program DOES support .DOC files, so opening such files isn't an issue. In fact, I opened a .DOC file that used strikeout text, and the strikeout appeared. There's a paid version of the software, but it's small potatoes compared to you-know-what

Setting up a backup configuration is made easy by the backup wizard that guides you through every step.

Backup4all also enables you to see what files have changed since the last backup and to preview the statistics for the next backup. Additional features include ZIP compression, Explorer integration, incremental backups and more. Backup4all works with any drive letter, including mapped network drives, CD-R/CD-RW media, and UNC paths. The program comes with an attractive interface and many features, but lacks documentation.
bCheck HoeKey vA10 [15k] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://bcheck.arsware.org/

{Hot keys and more} This bite-sized utility can assign hotkeys to do anything, such as pressing Windows+N to get Notepad, Windows+S to get the DOS shell, Ctrl+Shift+E to get the Euro symbol, and various keys to control Winamp play. To modify the hotkeys, click on "Configure" and the INI file pops up in Notepad for your editing pleasure. HoeKey is one of many tiny gems from bCheck. Is there a program you'd like to run during Startup, but not EVERY time? Get Capster, and all you have to do is lock down the CapsLock key. You know that PertScree (PrtScr) key? Purrint will have the PrtScr key save to a file, print, or copy to the clipboard. IECr@ (pardonnez my French) has zoom, resizer, and debugger utilities included. Windows+End.

Bulk Rename Utility v2.0.3.3 [1.2M] W98/2k/XP http://www.jimwillsher.co.uk/Site/Software/BRU_Intro.html

{Rename multiple files and folders} Bulk Rename Utility allows you to rename multiple files and directories, based on criteria. The utility can perform string substitution and remove characters from the start or end of the filename, or the middle. Change file names to upper case, lower case, and title case. Add a prefix or suffix to file names, or insert text at a specific point. For example, if you have files starting with "2002," you can quickly rename all these to "2003." Similarly, if you have lots of "HTML" files then you can quickly rename them all to "htm" and vice versa. Files can be auto-numbered using rules. Before making changes to the names, you can see a preview of the new names. Settings are retained between sessions. The utility has a small memory "footprint" can it can be loaded without consuming all of the computer's memory.

burnatonce v0.95a [3.6M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.mywebattack.com/gnomeapp.php?id=106024

Burnatonce is a CD burning tool that can burn audio and data CDs, create ISO and CUE images, copy CDs on-the-fly, and more. You can compile data or audio CDs for immediate burning, or you can create ISO images and burn them later. Burnatonce can also play selected audio tracks, and allows you to mark sections in order to only burn parts of a song. Additional features include support for various ISO formats as well as bootable images, multisession recording, burn simulation, buffer protection, CD-Text support and more. Not near as easy to use and well featured as commercial programs, but works well and is free.

BS/1 Software Enterprise with Manufacturing v2.46 [2.9M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.dbsonline.com/enterprise/

{Inventory system} BS/1 Enterprise with Manufacturing is an integrated, multi-currency, manufacturing, distribution and accounting system, which includes Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, General Ledger, Inventory, Purchase Orders, Sales Orders and Quotes, Manufacturing, and Sales Analysis. All of these items are available in a drop-down list in the compact-sized program screen. Companies doing business on an international basis will appreciate the multi-currency feature for billing and purchasing. The program converts the revenues and expenses to domestic currency. The Web site displays a screen shot of the system and each of its key features. Ironically, I'm taking a course on how to use bookkeeping software, and frankly can't imagine handling such tasks without the use of a program. The terminology is easy to confuse, at least for me. For those accounting-challenged folks like me, the Getting Started wizard assists with entering the initial data. Those who learn by example can review the sample data on how a food manufacturer can use the program.


Calendar Magic Most calendar programs are interchangeable, and show only the day, month, and year. Calendar Magic, on the other hand, offers more. It lets you create reminders for events (birthdays, anniversaries, meetings) as well as set audible warnings for imminent events. The program also has a "This Is Your Life" feature that tells you the day of the week you were born, as well as the number of days you have lived and your zodiac sign. What may be most notable about the program, however, is that it gives you the ability to view the calendar in Gregorian, Chinese, Hebrew, Julian, and Persian format. It includes the dates and times of equinoxes, solstices, and moon phases for any year from 1582 to 3000, as well. You can also print any of the output it displays on your screen.

Chainsaw v3.6
  • 179K
  • Win9x/2k/XP
  • FREE


{File splitter} Of course, I had thoughts of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre running through my head when I saw this program's name, but it's safer and nicer than the horror movie. Me don't like horror films. To download the file, select one of the places listed at the bottom and search for Chainsaw. After locating a .doc file larger than 1M, I dragged and dropped the file on the chainsaw and the program promptly went to work splitting it into four files and one .bat file. Send all five files and click on the .bat to sew them back together again. Hey, maybe it will work for Humpty Dumpty? It works with various (I assume all, but never say "all") file types. Easy to use and fast plus no chance of accidentally chopping off any body parts. Bad, I know

Cfont Pro v1.7 [2.8M] W98/2k FREE http://www.mywebattack.com/gnomeapp.php?id=105136

Cfont Pro allows you to quickly view all fonts currently loaded on your system. You can scroll through each font with a custom preview of your choice (background color, text color, and text displayed). In addition, the program lets you preview and install fonts from any directory, CD, or folder without having to install them first. The built-in slideshow feature allows you to cycle through all your fonts and preview them without user intervention.

Clickcat P2H v2.0 [13.0M] W2k/XP FREE (Basic version) http://www.pdf-to-html.com/

{Convert Adobe Acrobat PDF files to HTML} I use Adobe Acrobat to save my work in its native layout - complete with graphics - into a PDF file. Occasionally, I lose the original word processing file with the work and get stuck with the PDF format, unable to copy and paste the material. Grudgingly, I retype the portions I need. This program takes the PDF file and puts it into HTML, a format which can be copied and pasted, and preserves the original page layout as close as technically possible. It can also convert PDF files to CDF (Catalog Data Format) and generate HTML files from CDF. Software like Clickcat P2H will probably get attention, as many use PDF files to avoid works being copied or stolen. The name Clickcat is ironic since it almost sounds like copycat. The Lockergnome staff doesn't condone plagiarizing (passing off work as one's own). There, that should keep lawyers, Adobe, and other folks from coming after us. There are Deutsch and español versions of the product's Web site.

GSpot Codec Information Appliance v2.1 [112k] W9x/2k/XP http://www.headbands.com/gspot/

{Codec information appliance} A codec is a program that tells the computer how to display a video clip or movie. Video clips aren't displayed or interpreted in the same way, and codec takes care of it. Find an AVI file and drag 'n drop the file into GSpot, which outputs all of the information in its dialog box. Look in "Video Format" for Status to see if the codec is installed or not. If it's not, then you need to obtain the codec listed. If a codec isn't available for "Audio Format," there may be no sound. GSpot identifies what's needed, but does not install it. Go to a favorite search engine and enter "codec" along with the information from the status box to help narrow down the search. Download the codec and install it, which will enable your media players to play the file.

Cobian Backup v5.1.3.0 [4.1M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www2.educ.umu.se/~cobian/cbu5.htm

You can also back up to a FTP server. There are two versions available: application and service. Service is for Win2K, NT, and XP only. The program uses few resources and can run in the background, checking the backup schedule and executing backups when necessary, which can be on a daily, weekly, monthly, timer, or manual basis. The program creates a log file that can be automatically e-mailed. Those wanting the program in other languages than English can download language support files.
