v6.0

  • Fixed bug in Copy To and Move To: the Windows Explorer crashed when a folder was created.
  • Fixed bug in custom commands: when asking for arguments, the application was run if the "Cancel" button was pushed.
  • Fixed bug in configuration window: when the name of a custom command was been edited and other command was selected, then this command got the same name which was been edited.
  • Fixed bug in Split Files: the parts were not correctly joined.
  • Fixed bug in Shredder: didn't work correctly with small files.
  • Fixed bug in Create New Folder: create new folder into UNC paths did not work.
  • Split Files: now the number of parts is calculated automatically, and it is not necessary to push the Update button
  • New utility: Create Symbolic Link. This utility lets you create symbolic links referenced to the selected elements. Only it works on Windows Vista and later.
  • New utility: Calculate and Verify Checksum. This utility lets you verify the integrity of files by calculating their checksums. It supports the following algorithms: MD5, SHA1.
  • Custom commands: by default the initial folder is the parent folder when only a folder is selected in the Windows Explorer.
  • Custom commands: added new property Run as administrator. If this property is checked, then the program is run with administrator privileges. This is useful on Windows Vista and Windows 7 when UAC (User Account Control) is activated and the program needs perform changes in the machine which require administrator privileges.
  • Added the following improvements in Advanced Renamer:
    • It is possible to rename recusively into subfolders.
    • Now the preview is not updated automatically, because it was very slow with a lot files. A new button has been added in order to update the preview manually.
    • Include specific tags of photos: width, height, captured date and captured time.
    • Include specific tags of MP3 files (ID3 tags): title, artist, album, year, genre, track, comment, length, bitrate and sample rate.
  • Only for Windows 7: the Windows Explorer icon on the taskbar displays now a progress bar when an action of FileMenu Tools displays a progress bar. So you can see the progress when the Windows Explorer is not the foreground window.
  • Copy Internet Path: standarized the Internet path. The character / is used instead of \, and also the special characters are replaced with the hexadecimal value.
