  1. Hello Alan Hello Willy2 Well, my cmd doesn't show anything about localappdata either and I have no idea why it is working. On the other hand, program installers somehow must have a possibility to install at the correct place, without having localized the paths for 20 languages. I searched the registry as suggested for appdata and found File://%userappdata%\Microsoft and some other weird stuff. Why don't you analyze the follwing You should get the same result twice. You might have though to localize your path: [Adobe9 Search localappdata] LangSecRef=3021 Default=True FileKey1=%localappdata%\Adobe\Acrobat\9.0\Cache\Search|*.* [Adobe9 Search EN (DE)] LangSecRef=3021 Default=True ;FileKey2=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\Adobe\Acrobat\9.0\Cache\Search|*.* FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Acrobat\9.0\Cache\Search|*.* That's my Adobe search result folder, which is supposed to be found in the winapp.ini, but the original path (last line) doesn't work for my windows: Embedded winapp.ini (version 3.2.4) [Adobe Reader 9.0] ID=2137 LangSecRef=3021 Detect=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AVGeneral Default=True RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles FileKey1=%localappdata%\Adobe\Acrobat\9.0\Cache\Search90|*.* There are in the embedded winapp.ini even some other %-stuff linked FileKey1=%localappdata%\Apple Computer\QuickTime\downloads|*.*|RECURSE -->is found FileKey2=%locallowappdata%\Apple Computer\quicktime\downloads|*.*|RECURSE -->probably Win7/Vista only FileKey1=%commonappdata%\Symantec\Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition\7.5\Logs|*.log FileKey1=%commonappdata%\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs|*.* -->is found Commonappdata is not available under cmd. Well, next week I'll ask my scripting friend about %localappdata% and %commonappdata%, he probably knows the answer ;-)
  2. Good news Alan! %localappdata% does work under my Windows XP without the set variable :-) I've found it a couple of times in the winapp2.ini like M$ Picture Manager. I just checked on MediaMonkey [*MediaMonkey standard] LangSecRef=3023 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe Default=True FileKey1=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u FileKey2=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE [*MediaMonkey localappdata] LangSecRef=3023 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe Default=True FileKey1=%localappdata%\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u FileKey2=%localappdata%\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE In both cases the file mediamonkey.m3u was found analyzing the system. The other folder I usually don't use. @Willy2 I checked my registry and found the entries you were posting. But have you noticed, that "LocalAppData" is written "Local AppData" in registry with a space in between. There must be some kind of magic!
  3. Hello Alan Sure, %appdata% does work on my German XP as well as %programdata% etc. From your linked list the last three commands don't apply as well as the (x86)-stuff since Win XP is 32bit. If you'd like, I'll can check the list on Windows 7 German 32bit and 64bit. I can also check ccleaner on Windows 7 32bit as well as 64bit using the English as well as my localized German winapp2.ini for the installed applications. Many of the combinations of winapp2.ini are like "\local settings\application data\" or "My blabla" which has no set command under XP. As I understand, the local settings\application data is the same as %localappdata% for Win7. It might be a solution to create a set command "localappdata" for ccleaner under XP to solve the problem. This should run under all Windows-Versions if the path is correct. Without having the command localappdata set, it won't work for ccleaner under XP. What kind of script are you working on? Regards
  4. Hello Willy2 Thanks for your reply. I sent a PM to TwistedMetal. Switching profiles definitely would be handy :-) I wrote the separate Office-winapp2.ini-entry to make handling easier for me. I checked the %temp%-issue on another PC installed a few months ago, using also German Windows XP. Well, I guess I was kind of too fast without reading manuals or adjusting settings... stupid me! Problem solved for temp-issue, there is this 24h-option under advanced settings.... which shows temp-Files only after 24hours. Thus, when I just copied files and this checkbox is still checked, no wonder ccleaner doesn't find anything but MediaMonkey does. After unchecking the 24h option, the results were the same out of %temp% folder. About MediaMonkey I installed it the first time on the "new" PC: the standard paths for Previews and mediamonkey.m3u are %userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey\ or translated to English %userprofile%\Local Settings\application data\MediaMonkey\ Sorry for the temp-chaos
  5. When I scanned my hdd using everything, I found out, that MediaMonkey probably has changed it's paths! In the installation of March 2009 there where both mentionned paths on my old PC for previews as well as for m3u available. That was version of MediaMonkey. In the meantime after reinstalling from scratch, there is only the Local Settings/Lokale Einstellungen used. Please someone check this, preferably MediaMonkey installed the first time after March 2009. Or check your Preview or VirtualCD-path under MediaMonkey ->tools ->options Virtual CD Thanks P.S. everthing is lightning fast! I was puzzled to get the results almost instantly eventhough there are above 250 GByte of data on my hdd! You can get it from http://www.voidtools.com/
  6. Hello Thanks for your replies, Willy2 and Andavari. Today I updated MediaMonkey to version Paths didn't change. Ok, I'll try the entries below - I deleted the English entries but left the ones that didn't work for me, just in case MediaMonkey changed paths [*MediaMonkey Deutsch] LangSecRef=3023 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe Default=True FileKey1=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Temp|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u FileKey3=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE ;Untenstehendes könnte auch zutreffen - bitte prüfen wo sich die Verzeichnisse bzw. Daten befinden. ;FileKey2=%userprofile%\Eigene Dateien\Eigene Musik\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u ;FileKey3=%userprofile%\Eigene Dateien\Eigene Musik\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE I did a Search for MediaMonkey over my HDD. That's how I found the paths. The MediaMonkey entry for English could be [*MediaMonkey English] LangSecRef=3023 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe Default=True FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp|*.*|RECURSE ;check if those entries work for your copy of MediaMonkey FileKey2=%userprofile%\My Documents\My Music\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u FileKey3=%userprofile%\My Documents\My Music\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE ;alternate path for those entries, which might work - please check ;FileKey2=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u ;FileKey3=%userprofile%\Local Settings\application data\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE Unfortunately, I don't have Windows XP English to test - please check your English XP using MediaMonkey and reply. Willy2, thanks for the MS Office hint, I added the code below to my winapp2.ini to fix it and also implemeted the suggestion from Andavari [MS Office Zuletzt verwendete Dateien löschen] LangSecRef=3021 Default=True FileKey1=%appdata%\Microsoft\Office\Zuletzt Verwendet|*.* If the path is written correctly, the files show up ;-) Are there any other language issues you know of which have to be "fixed" separately? The French, Spanish, etc. XP users probably have the same problem with paths. Nope, ccleaner doesn't delete those temp-files under Windows XP German. Only using MediaMonkey does show the temp-files: Right before I did the search I copied 3 files out of ccleaner-folder to this place. Look at the attached picture. The picture ist the result of chosing Empty Recycle Bin, Temporary Files and MediaMonkey. I also checked everything on the Windows Page but there were no temporary files even though I didn't delete above 3 files. I have even checked all the available embedded ini-Files for ccleaner, searched for "%\" (those are the paths which can be localised for XP) but didn't find nothing. From here I got them: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=15307&view=findpost&p=173873 My windows knows %temp% and %tmp% both do refer to this path %userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Temp (%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp) Sorry, since I'm quite new to ccleaner forum to whom should I send a PM? An Admin, Global Moderator or anyone else? I'll teach internet security class next week and ccleaner seems to me to be the tool to have, much easier than deleting everything by hand, thus, I checked quite detailed and found those issues ;-) Is there any possibility to start ccleaner using a different ccleaner.ini files? Like I have ccleaner1.ini, ccleaner2.ini, etc. for special occasions? I didn't find anything in the documentation http://docs.piriform.com/ccleaner/advanced-usage/command-line-parameters Thanks
  7. Hello After I translated the winapp2.ini correctly for my version of Windows XP, I found out that the MediaMonkey entries probably don't work correclty for my Windows XP German. Are the informations correct for your version of Windows XP? Under the German expressions I always translated the English ones using the ";", hope this helps. [*MediaMonkey] LangSecRef=3023 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe Default=True FileKey1=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Temp|*.*|RECURSE ;FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp|*.*|RECURSE ;FileKey2=%userprofile%\Eigene Dateien\Eigene Musik\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u ;FileKey2=%userprofile%\My Documents\My Music\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u ;FileKey3=%userprofile%\Eigene Dateien\Eigene Musik\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE ;FileKey3=%userprofile%\My Documents\My Music\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u ;FileKey2=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u FileKey3=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey\Previews ;FileKey3=%userprofile%\local settings\application data\MediaMonkey\Previews The temp-entry did delete all my temp-stuff at this place: FileKey1=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Temp|*.*|RECURSE ;FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp|*.*|RECURSE I kind of was confused since I expected ccleaner to clean this place as well on a regular basis without having a MediaMonkey entry. Is this place cleaned automatically having an English version of Windows XP without MediaMonkey entry? This two paths MediaMonkey didn't install: FileKey2=%userprofile%\Eigene Dateien\Eigene Musik\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u ;FileKey2=%userprofile%\My Documents\My Music\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u FileKey3=%userprofile%\Eigene Dateien\Eigene Musik\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE ;FileKey3=%userprofile%\My Documents\My Music\MediaMonkey\Previews|*.*|RECURSE The MediaMonkey.m3u-path is: FileKey2=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u ;FileKey2=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\MediaMonkey|MediaMonkey.m3u The Previews-path is: FileKey3=%userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\MediaMonkey\Previews ;FileKey3=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\MediaMonkey\Previews Might it be possible, that MediaMonkey changed it's paths during the years? I'm using it for a cuple of years now. Or might it be that different paths are used for different languages of Windows XP? Or a combination of both? The temporary path of MediaMonkey ist (entry found under ->Tools ->Options) %userprofile%\Lokale Einstellungen\Temp Thanks for answering my questions or any ideas or helpful information! P.S. If there are some Windows XP language issues, probably there are other applications that might not work properly.
  8. Hello I just found the winapp2.ini recently for ccleaner http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=1110 I noticed that temporary files of several programs weren't found by ccleaner remaining on my hdd. Unfortunately, this version doesn't work on my German Windows XP since the used paths are optimized for the English Version. Windows 7 and Vista probably will work, since English path expressions are found. Thus, I searched and replaced some of the entries to make above winapp2.ini work properly. Since I didn't find an existing forum entry, I thought, I want to share it with you: Just download the empty winapp2.ini to your hdd and copy/paste the original entries into it or whatever you need. Then search and replace the expressions below if you are using the German Version or use your Windows XP localised expressions: ;----------------------- ; English Expression Deutscher Ausdruck ; ---------------------- ------------------ ; My Documents Eigene Dateien ; My Music Eigene Musik ; Documents and Settings Dokumente und Einstellungen ; Application Data Anwendungsdaten ; Local Settings Lokale Einstellungen ; My Videos ? (Eigene Videos?) ; My Chat Logs ? For Videos and Chat you have to check the path. Happy ccleaning
