Useful scripts written in AutoHotkey

I have posted quite a few releases today and am working on some new scripts as well.

Released: CHKDSK Assist v1.6.2, Sidebar Restart v2.0.5, Simple Text Viewer v1.1.0 and Dir Clean v0.5.1 (BETA 5a)

Well, it wasn't soon, but Dir Clean v0.5.0 (BETA 5) has finally been released. Dir Clean v0.6.0 (BETA 6) is already coming along but it is a large update and will take a while.

I am also working on updates to Sidebar Restart and a long overdue update to CHKDSK Assist.

Sidebar Restart v2.0.4 has been released. I believe that I've finally squashed all of the bugs I could find and this should be the last Sidebar Restart release for a while.

Sidebar Restart v2.0.3 has been released.

Sidebar Restart v2.0.2 has been released.

I apologize for the lack of updates in recent months, but I have been very busy and haven't had the time to work on my scripts. Updates will continue to be slow in coming for the forseeable future, but I will still maintain my scripts.

On that note, Sidebar Restart v2.0.1 has been released, as well as TR Tools Setup v2.8.1. Dir Clean v0.5.0 (BETA 5) should be up soon.

After a longer than expected development period, Sidebar Restart v2.0.0 has finally been released. This version is much more robust than the previous v1.x.x releases, so I highly recommend that you upgrade if you're using an older version.

Simple Text Viewer v1.0.2 has been released.

I am also finishing up the v2.0.0 release of Sidebar Restart. It should be posted sometime soon.

Its taken me much of the year, but my all my scripts have now received at least one 2010 update, as Dir Clean v0.4.0 (BETA 4) has finally been released. I should have the next release out much sooner than this one.

Sidebar Restart v1.7.0 (RC0) has also been released. The next release of that script will be the final v2.0.0 release.

Simple Text Viewer v1.0.1 has been released.

I apologize, but a system failure put a significant delay on this update. Sidebar Restart v1.6.0 (BETA 3) has been released. I have changed the name for Script Setup Utility to TR Tools Setup and have released v2.8.0 of the installer. All installers have been updated to use the new version.

I have at least one more update coming in the next few days.

I had this ready over a month ago, but I recently started a new job which is taking up a ton of my time. Sidebar Restart v1.5.0 (BETA 2) has been released, as well as Script Setup Utility v2.7.0. All installers have been updated to use the new version.

I will try to be a bit more diligent with updates.

I have a few new releases for you today. Remove Script Settings v1.6.0 has been released. This release fixes a long standing undiscovered bug where the File Replicator settings removal did not work properly. There are several other changes as well. Script Setup Utility v2.6.2 has been released and all installers have been updated to use the new version.

Sidebar Restart v1.4.0 (BETA 1) has been released, and is the first of several releases leading to the eventual v2.0.0 release. There are quite a few changes, with more to come. The v1.3.0 stable release will remain up until v2.0.0 is ready for those that don't want to bother with BETA releases.

Sidebar Restart v1.3.0 has been released. I am working on a v2.0.0 release of Sidebar Restart, which will include a GUI configuration tool and the ability to Check for Updates.

It is overdue and probably was in BETA for too long, but Simple Text Viewer v1.0.0 has finally been released. I should have released it last year, but time got away from me and there were several multi month gaps between releases.

I now will turn my focus to moving Dir Clean along. I have quite a bit of work ahead of me on the roadmap for that script.

I finally got around to completing some long overdue updates for my Released Scripts. CHKDSK Assist v1.6.1, File Replicator v1.2.1 and Remove Script Settings v1.5.1 have been released. They were delayed by an issue with one of my programs that is used to build the content for my scripts.

I have also posted Simple Text Viewer v0.6.0 (RC0). The next release of that script will be the final v1.0.0 release.

Sidebar Restart v1.2.0 has been released.

Due to some unexpected computer and server issues it has taken me much longer than expected to post this update to the site. I would like to announce that I've completed my Windows 7 testing and all scripts now support that OS. I also would like to report that I no longer have a Windows Vista test PC so while support for that OS is not going away any time soon I will be unable to test any of my scripts on that OS.

Script Setup Utility v2.6.1 has been released and all installers have been updated to use the new version. Simple Text Viewer v0.5.0 (BETA 5) has been released as well, which includes quite a few changes. I'm getting pretty close to a non-BETA release for that script. Finally, I've posted a new Released script, Sidebar Restart. It is a simple script that I whipped up to restart the Windows Vista/7 sidebar.

Simple Text Viewer v0.4.2 (BETA 4b) and Dir Clean v0.3.0 (BETA 3) have been released. I also have released Script Setup Utility v2.5.0, which fixes a long standing undiscovered bug where the installer would ignore any custom Start Menu location. All installer downloads have been updated to this new version.

I also would like give a status update on Windows 7 support. I still have not done any official testing on the platform, and hope to complete it yet this week. Script Setup Utility is the only item on this website that officially supports Windows 7 at this time. Support in my remaining scripts is forthcoming.

Simple Text Viewer v0.4.1 (BETA 4a) and Dir Clean v0.2.1 (BETA 2a) have been released.

I have updated Simple Text Viewer to v0.4.0 (BETA 4). I have switched to a new version format for BETA releases, so if the installer tells you that is an older version just say yes to install. There are quite a few changes for this release. The installer uses the latest Script Setup Utility v2.3.0, and I will be updating the other scripts to this version as they are updated themselves.

I have also released another BETA script, Dir Clean v0.2.0 (BETA 2). It is a script I created to clean up temporary files and folders.

Any feedback on either script (as well as any of my other scripts) is appreciated. I would also like to point out that I will be testing on Windows 7 soon, so support for that OS should be forthcoming.

Finally an update! I want to point out that all of my scripts support Windows XP and Windows Vista, but are untested on Windows 7. They may work just fine, they may not. I won't able to test them until I get Windows 7 later this month. I have updated the Info pages for both my Released and BETA scripts to include OS support info.

Script development (and updates to this site) has slowed to a crawl, as I haven't had much time to work on them. I have tons of ideas and things I want to do but time is an issue right now. Hopefully I will have some updates posted soon.

Welcome to my new website! Construction is still in progress so some parts of the website may change a bit over the next few weeks. Take a look around.

To celebrate the posting of my newest website version I have released new versions of every script on the site! Enjoy!
