Re: An Old Program


I haven't looked much at the page but there is a portable version which, if it is a typical portable version requires no installation. Therefore, you should see an exe file in the main folder that will run it.

If you still have problems, I modified something, I don't recall what, it was years ago, to allow me to place the file in the folder I want to generate the list for, and have the list appear in the same folder where the files are.

But the problem is: it's not an MSI or an exe file. It's an ISS file. I opened it with notepad and it looks to be a program code file calling itself
Inno Setup script
So I need to google some part of Inno Setup script to find out how to execute it. I don't know what Inno is but maybe google will tell me.

You just press enter on the installation file and it'll install where it's supposed to install on its own.

Well, I've read a little more and it looks like it's a file explorer
add-on and I'll have to install it into file explorer. So far, can't
figure out how.

Howard, no, you use your context key. Navigate to a directory and hit
your context key and look for the pathcopy pulldown.

Thanks Ron, but it looks pretty complicated to me. I downloaded it
and it contains hundreds of files that I don't understand. Looks
like source code in the C language. The install program doesn't
even seem to be an executable. Do I need a C compiler to put it
together? I just don't know where to start. It seems like, in the
old days, this chore was done with a simple one-line batch file. I
sure am behind in this stuff.

Hi Howard,

There is a Windows version of such a program that is far superior to
the old DOS based program or perhaps Windows 98 program you are
referring to. It is free and is called Path Copy and it's address is
This program runs from the context menu and you can do a number of
things with it. It copies long name, short name, long path, short
path. It can copy the exact file names of all the files in a folder

save it anywhere you want.

This is what I use to make text delimited databases for all my

Hi anyone,
Years ago, I had a program that made a text (.txt) file containing
a list of the files in a given folder and put the text file in that
folder. Wonder if anyone has that little utility and could tell
me where to get it and how to use it? Appreciate it. Thanks.
