Subject: Re: Flash Renamer 6.0 beta! - Help-file + RMB

Date: Sat, 15 Dec 2007 18:56:11 +0100

Well, the help is written in html, but it is not online. It is stored in the same folder as Flash Renamer.

As search box would be a good idea, but I don't know how to make one that works locally since there is no server side scripting available... It would have to be made in javascript somehow I guess..

The context menu: try installing FR again. Make sure you restart your computers. If it still does not work let me know. There have been some trouble with it, but I have not idea why. I will have to make some special program to detect the problems...
