No, it's most likely not open source. I was thinking if it helps having the same app on Win7 working as well as on XP, let it be either different libs used or having a closed source example for "functional" copying. There also stays the possibility of opening dialog with the authors.

Open1x (http://sourceforge.net/projects/open1x/) GPL, written in C/C++, available for windows, and brings support for WPA/WPA2 and others to the OS. Would that be of any use?

Source: http://www.ltr-data.se/opencode.html/

Language: Mostly C++

Projects of Interest:
ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver - create virtual hard disk, floppy or CD/DVD drives using image files or system memory
The ImDisk driver supports forwarding I/O requests to third-party image file format handlers or to services on other computers on the network. This makes it possible to boot a machine with NTFS partitions with a Live-CD and use the included devio tool to let ImDisk on another computer running Windows on the network mount the NTFS partition on the machine with a faulty NTFS partition. This way you can recover information and even run chkdsk on drives on machines where Windows does not boot.

CallDLL - Calls a function in a dll file. The function must use the stdcall calling convention and accept only one single parameter, a pointer to a character string as or a NULL pointer. If you e.g. want to connect to a network printer from a batch file you can write: "calldll winspool.drv AddPrinterConnectionA \\server\printerq".

CopyACLs - Copies access lists (permissions and ownership) from one file or directory to a list of others.

fdf - Utility to search for duplicate files and optionally delete or hard link them to save disk space

rawcopy - Reads and writes files and devices - dd for windows. For example useful to write a floppy image file on a hard disk to a physical floppy in Windows NT. (This can also be done by using various Win32 ports of the *nix dd program. But unlike rawcopy, they usually do not unmount/lock physical devices or partitions during the read/write which makes them quite dangerous to use if anything else is using the device meanwhile...)

regrepl - Registry Replace Tool. This program is useful if you have missed a "replace all"-function in the Registry Editor.

Information for Users

imv(stb) is an extremely lightweight and fast image viewer/browser for the Windows platform. The current executable is about 70KB (without executable compression).
Features

Inspired by vjpeg, imv(stb) offers a very simple, no-frills image viewer with a minimal interface. Each opened image is easy to drag and resize. A minimal border around the image makes it easy to see the contents of the edge of the image, and (compared to vjpeg) prevents you from confusing a screenshot of a windows application with the actual application.

Inspired by Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, imv(stb) lets you navigate through multiple images in the same directory in a single window. Unlike Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, you can have multiple imv(stb) browsers open simultaneously.

Details of the latest changes can be found in the ReleaseNotes.
Better impossible: It's GPL'ed, the library it uses is minimalistic, self-made, supports lots of formats, embedded into a single header and it's 100% public domain. There are two versions available, in 70kb and 47kb flavors, the latter one using GDI+. This guy is a painfully perfectionist hacker!.

I don't know how isn't this shipped by default already. :)

[!] I'd also like to request PNG and JPG support from here (wallpapers anyone?).
Using that cute, tiny lib if possible. Hardcore walls, 1mb per head isn't quite smarty for science's sake.

Does this viewer support "Windows Imaging Component" framework (Vista+)? There are codec packs like this one that can plug into it and support enormous number of formats. Then it would be brilliant (even more than it already is).

He does not confuse it, only expresses in confusing way. The software is GPL'd. The library is uses is public domain.

No, it's a really tiny program. By the way, doing the appropriate bindings using stb_image for thumbnailing and stuff doesn't looks too complex.
Anyways, I don't believe that ReactOS shell supports it currently.

That's why I'd opt to include small tools like this and (a possibly rebranded) 7zip already in the build.
And maybe wget as there isn't a "working" downloader by default. iexplore is a simple embedded frame of gecko with three buttons and url input.

Slightly OFFTOPIC: I believe that Firefox 10 is working again on dev. Is the c runtime problem fixed already?

OK, thanks for the info. The thing with WIC framework is that if ROS supported it out of the box, the utilities using it would "just" switch from GDI+ to WIC without growing too much. I wonder if there are some image format support packs that can be used via GDI+.

There is dwnl.exe.

Windows Service Wrapper
http://projectkenai.com/projects/winsw

License:L| MIT (GPL Compatible)

This project creates a wrapper executable that can be used to host any executable as an Windows service.

Example: http://misterdai.wordpress.com/2009/10/ ... s-service/

Code: Select all

01	<service>
02	 <id>nginx</id>
03	 <name>nginx</name>
04	 <description>nginx</description>
05	 <executable>c:\nginx\nginx.exe</executable>
06	 <logpath>c:\nginx\</logpath>
07	 <logmode>roll</logmode>
08	 <depend></depend>
09	 <startargument>-p c:\nginx</startargument>
10	 <stopargument>-p c:\nginx -s stop</stopargument>
11	</service>
Specifically, it allows you to set custom start and stop parameters (for nginx, for example, normally it starts 2 processes, and Windows will only stop one (leaving orphan processes). With this, Windows will be able to run the special stop command.
