  1. I have a question in on the scootersoftware.com forum to make sure deleting the whole BCState.xml file won't break anything else, but I think it is mostly the MRUs, plus maybe window positions. No answer from them yet. Um, in quick testing just now it looks like deleting BCState.xml may delete other settings that could be a problem for users, or at least annoying. It was ok on one PC I tried, but on the one here it made BC go thru it's first-setup-wizard after deleting BCState. So, sigh, better not add deleting BCState.xml to winapp2.ini yet. nuts. (You probably want to reconsider deleting BCSessions.xml though) This is where having CCleaner be able to remove specific bits from XML files would be real handy.
  2. Glad to help. I have a question in on the scootersoftware.com forum to make sure deleting the whole BCState.xml file won't break anything else, but I think it is mostly the MRUs, plus maybe window positions. No answer from them yet. Too bad about the XML. That would be useful in cases like this, where you could be a lot more specific. One wish I'd have since playing with adding winapp2 to ccleaner, is some more info on what each entry is doing, what kinds of things it is deleting. I know you can select an item in CCleaner and run analyze and see the things it finds, and that helps... I guess I wish for more human-written descriptions of what the files are, what is being cleaned. It would help decide what to clean or not. Yeah, I know that would be a huge job to add that kind of detail, and to maintain it, even if CCleaner had some data fields to use it... so mostly wishful thinking I guess... ;-) later, jeff
  3. I'm new to the winapp2 stuff, but was looking at adding cleaning of MRU lists on Beyond Compare (scooter software) to CCleaner. You have a Beyond Compare (aka BC) entry in winapp2.ini now as so... [Beyond Compare*] LangSecRef=3021 Detect=HKCU\Software\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare*|*.bak;BCCommands.xml;BCSessions.xml I see two problems here. First, deleting BCSessions.xml would delete all user-saved sessions (compare setups). I don't know if you intended just to clear the auto-saved sessions or what, but this would clear user settings that they might want. Second, the definition above wouldn't clean out BC's MRU lists. (path history, etc, clear for privacy) Hopefully Scooter software will add a feature to let users clear these MRUs, but in the meantime, you might consider whether to also delete the BCState.xml file, or the MRU entries within it. BTW, does CCleaner have the ability to delete specific nodes or branches within an XML file? Or can it just delete the whole file? Thanks, Jeff
