SubStringRename (Freeware)
Fri, 29 Apr 2016 08:55:43 +0000

Made bug fixes and improvements to the SubStringRename Java class. In this release, this utility now supports:

1) Directory specification as part of the file specification.
2) Windows UNC path.
3) Checks that search and replace strings are not the same.

The following example shows what you can do now. The new version is attached below.

Example 3

Substituting the "dscn" prefix with "pict" in all jpg files within the "\\server\transfer" directory:

  java SubStringRename "dscn" "pict" "\\server\transfer\*.jpg"


  \\server\transfer\dscn0038.jpg -> pict0038.jpg
\\server\transfer\dscn0039.jpg -> pict0039.jpg
\\server\transfer\dscn0040.jpg -> pict0040.jpg
\\server\transfer\dscn0041.jpg -> pict0041.jpg
\\server\transfer\dscn0042.jpg -> pict0042.jpg
\\server\transfer\dscn0043.jpg -> pict0043.jpg
\\server\transfer\dscn0044.jpg -> pict0044.jpg
\\server\transfer\dscn0045.jpg -> pict0045.jpg

Multi-Line IF Statements in Batch File
Fri, 08 Apr 2016 23:31:30 +0000

Thanks for teaching me the call subroutine command. If statements are quite fickle and cmd batch scripts, sometime collapsing the script for no reason. Simplifying the if statement by making it call a subrountine really helped.

Open Command Prompt (GPL)
Fri, 05 Feb 2016 00:24:17 +0000

"Open Command Prompt.cmd" is Windows batch program that opens a Command Prompt to any directory you specify. If you do not specify a directory, then it just opens a Command Prompt to the current directory. The real power in this script is the ability for you to drag a folder from Windows Explorer onto it to open a Command Prompt to that folder.

"Open Command Prompt.cmd" takes advantage of the following batch file. It is also available on this web site. So to use "Open Command Prompt.cmd", you'll have to download it, if you don't already have it.


"Open Command Prompt.cmd" is distributed as executable source code under the GNU General Public License. Please see the license agreement elsewhere on this site. If you make changes to this batch file, please feel free to upload it back here to share it with others.


  "Open Command Prompt.cmd"
"Open Command Prompt.cmd" "directory"

TakeControl 3.0

Is the account you are trying to install on an administrator? If not, it won't work. You have to be an administrator to install TakeControl on Windows 8.1; it's security measure is extremely high.

If you do have administrator privilege, try right clicking on the install script and select "Run as administrator".
