Winapp2.ini

Winapp2.ini additions

Recommended Posts

New version of CCleaner just came out, when will Winapp2.ini? No hurries/worries, just asking. :D

I see absolutely no urgency.

 

The new version cleans more stuff with zero impact on what WinApp2.ini achieves,

and the only possible improvement to WinApp2.ini is to remove any odd items which are now cleaned by the new version.

Since 99% of all Winapp2.ini users are happy to accept that at least 90% of WinApp2.ini is useless bloat because they only have 10% of the applications installed,

an extra 1% on top of 90% is not a priority.

Well, I always like an update, doesn't matter to what (especially to CCleaner + Winapp2.ini).

And like I said, no hurries, just curious. Don't really get your point there / point for that post.

Nodles, can you tell us a bit about what scm logs are and when we might want/need them kept?

[Quicken Deluxe 2012 (logs)*]
LangSecRef=3021
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Quicken\qw.exe
Default=False
Filekey1=%AppData%\Intuit\Quicken\Log\|*.txt
FileKey2=%AppData%\Intuit\Quicken\Log\|*.log
Filekey3=%CommonAppData%\Intuit\Quicken\Log\|*.log
Filekey4=%CommonAppData%\Intuit\Quicken\Log\installer|*.*|RECURSE
Excludekey1=FILE|%CommonAppData%\Intuit\Quicken\Log\installer\|*.htm

looks to me as if it is valid for all quicken years and builds not just 2012 deluxe. it Detects and cleans things for Quicken 2011 Home and Business)

More info about SCM: http://www.geoffchap.../events/wpp.htm and http://social.techne...a-9d713b7fa402/ and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms685150%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Though, I haven't had any issues with that entry (not yet atleast), cleaned a few PC's with it ticked (Win7).

And like always, as I guess you already know, you should always be (more) careful with Winapp2.ini, 'cause it's a custom config/file.

@saad - Weird, it looks fine in my editor (Notepad++) but looks completely wrong in regular notepad. I'll fix that.

 

@rick I'll fix that and release with the above fix as well. Oops.

 

 

edit: @saad - The problem seems to have been a completely invisible character that should have been a line break character in each line. Weird. It probably happened to everything modified in this update.

You're right the problem is with the modified entries.

 

The latest version of CCleaner has no support for RealPlayer 15.

Exactly. I have a custom WinApp2.ini with only the entry's that apply to the programs i have. I would never use the full WinApp2.ini. Wouldn't make sense. I use the full WinApp2.ini as a sort of reference library.

Does anyone know where CCleaner checks for installed programs? What part of the registry? I assume CCleaner does indeed look to see what is installed and offers to clean only what you have registered?

CCleaner or Winapp2.ini?

The program uses either program paths or registry entries; eg. file/folder/program path: DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Safari\Safari.exe OR registry: Detect=HKCU\Software\Chromium

Me too, nice to know I am not alone :)

I use the whole & updated Winapp2.ini with my own additional entries to get everything cleaned, and for the other PC's I use it on (don't have to check all the programs installed etc).

There was talk of making a batch file to create the winapp2.ini file relevant to your computer for you, but it never got put together.

I have a batch that works - now fine tuning and fully testing.

Perhaps ready for release next week.

Probably need to make sure the formatting is correct by using good ole Windows Notepad because more advanced text viewers/editors can fool you into thinking everything is ok when it isn't, I've been there and done that before!
