It's not available anymore because lots of things were changed/added since v1.1.1.90. A new user manual needs to be written ... (any volunteers out there? chm format, or perhaps a wiki?).

Well, you can try the old user manual if you want to (but be warned). PM or email me if you're interested.

New release available (v2.7.0 build 172)

After some trouble getting it together the new release of TLH is now available: download it here or let TLH do the job (Help > Check for update...).

v2.7.0.172 fixes a few things, adds two options to the Preferences dialog, and enables TLH to process multiple folders passed via Windows Explorer context menus or Drag & Drop (details see changelog.txt). It's weird, very early versions of TLH were able to process multiple folders, but somewhere along the way from v1.0.0 build 72 to v1.1.1 build 90 this ability got lost. I still don't know why I removed this - even the well documented source code didn't help to find the reason. Anyway, here it is in all its glory. Enjoy!

Robert

PS: Note that this time you need to uninstall an existing version before the new installer can be executed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

I am having trouble accessing preferences and setting TLH defaults on my new computer (Windows 7 64 bit).
I am receiving the error message:
"User does not have administrative privileges.
The default setting can not be changed."

I have attempted to change permissions without success.
c:\program files\TLH -> properties -> security

As I am the only one on my computer, only 1 user was created and he has administrative permissions. However the security instructions are most confusing. Any guidance will be appreciated.

Even if you are logged in as an administrator - Win 7 doesn't allow you to do everything you want (writing to certain parts of the registry, for example). But there is a solution: right-click on the TLH desktop icon and select "Run as administrator". That's all. Note that this is only needed if you want to change the default settings or want to restore the integration of TLH into Windows Explorer context menus.

thanks a ton for this!

any chance you can implement verifying checksums (md5s/ffps/sts) in subfolders via windows explorer by right clicking on the main folder?

someshow.flac16
-disc 1
-d1.ffp
-disc 2
-d2.ffp

right now if I right click on someshow.flac16 and select TLH, then the option box opens up and I select verify checksum files, another box pops up and says- The folder is empty or does not contain files with the file extension(s) required

I see that there is a subfolder setting for creating checksums but not to verify them

maybe I'm doing something wrong

thanks!

There is no subfolder setting for verifying checksum files via Windows Explorer. Added to the to-do list...

Regarding "needs administrator permission to change preferences":

Wait a second - are you guys joking???

This is a security nightmare! NO piece of software needs admin rights today to set user preferences. There are only two reasons why current software would ask you to run it with such elevated rights:

- The programmer does not know a thing about programming on Windows
- The programmer wants to trick you into letting you into YOUR machine as admin - and it is unlikely that their intentions are pure.

BEWARE OF THIS SOFTWARE, it may be dangerous. (or, option 1, the programmer is incompetent to a high degree)

Noseshine, seriously? You must be joking, right?

This is an amazingly useful piece of software! I really don't know what I'd do without it. Obviously you're not a taper or much of a trader. I use this piece of software pretty much every day. The developer has provided it free of charge and unlike most "free" software, not only does he not ask for anything in return but is EXTREMELY amenable to changes, suggestions and quickly implements them. Development hasn't stopped after a few months either. This is an obvious labour of love and roann is a trusted member of this community. Maybe you ought to hang back a bit or at least do some research before insulting TLH with your first post.

Sheesh, some people.

I'll second this statement. For those serious about their audio TLH is indispensable (not casting aspertions on other software) and most, I would say, would rally behind Roann and his little beauty.
