My programs are basically just to unpack to any folder and run. If you want shortcuts in the Start menu, you have to create them manually. The programs (the EXE files) can be put directly on the desktop if you want - then you don't have to make any shortcuts. (Since all my programs are portable, which means that they are storing settings in the same folder as the program file, you should not put any of my programs under the usual "Program Files" folder because then they are not able to write to the folder. You can e.g. create a new folder in the root of your system disk and give it the name "Andreas Software" and put all files there.)
Some programs are suitable to create a shortcut to in Startup which makes them start automatically when you login to Windows. To create a shortcut to a program in Startup you open the box Run (e.g. by pressing [WIN+R] on the keyboard) and type "shell:Startup" (for you only) or "shell:Common Startup" (for all users) and press OK. In the folder which opens you can now create a shortcut to the program (the EXE file) in the usual way. (This won't work for programs that requires administrative rights. In these cases you can use the "Task Scheduler" in Windows.)
To add a parameter to a program you can open the box Run (e.g. by pressing [WIN+R] on the keyboard) and choose the program file and then add a space after the path to the program file and then add the parameter. Additional parameters are added in the same way (a space and the parameter). If a parameter contains spaces it has to begin and end with a double quotation mark. If you want to rationalize, you can use quotation marks in either case, that will also work. You can also create shortcuts with preset parameters, then create the shortcut to the program file as usual, then open Properties for the shortcut and add the parameter in the same way in the field Target.
Yes. The programs automatically tries to detect which language to be used. If you want to choose which language to be used you can use the parameters "/English" and "/Swedish".
Recursive is an option that indicates whether the program should search also in subfolders to the selected folder.
Filter is a criterion for inclusion of files. Enter "*.TXT" to include all TXT files. Do you want to include all files, enter "*". (Without double quotation marks.)
Case sensitive is an option that indicates whether the program should make any difference in uppercase and lowercase letters.
This applies to the "Auto" mode in AS-Auto Replace. If a file has an encoding mode (which the program can identify) that is not supported, the program will skip this file. This is done to avoid damage to the file's contents.
Some of the programs are storing settings in this file, usually with the filename "ProgramName.INI", "ProgramName.PREF" or "ProgramName.BIN". This file can be deleted if you want to reset the program's settings.
