Subject: Re: Flash Renamer 5.3 (Registered User) - Problem with right-click menu.

Date: Tue, 27 Nov 2007 19:34:20 +0100

Since version 5.2 all the settings are located in a file called settings.dat. You should find it here: "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\RL Vision\Flash Renamer". Open this file and search for "totNumberOfFilesRenamedNew"

>> Hi,
>>
>> First try to disable the menu and enabled it again. It this does not work, then download and install Flash Renamer again. Hopefully the installer will register the required files in your system. Before installing, turn the menu off just to be safe. I hope this will work!
>>
>> Flash Renamer already has a filename editor. It's called simply "Editor". If you think I could make it better let me know! And "macros" sounds a lot like "Presets" in Flash Renamer... :-)

>>> Oscar's Renamer has some pretty neat features. It allows you to edit file names as if you were working with a text editor. I often copy all of the file names within a folder, paste it into a text editor, edit the text, spell check, etc. and then bring it back into Oscar's Renamer.
