Subject: Re: Flash Renamer

Hi again,

Sorry for the late reply. I feel bad that you did not find the new version as easy to work with as the old one. While it does contain many new things, I have also tried to make it easier to work with and understand...

The old and new version should work together. (There might be a few problems with the right click menu, because both version will try to write to it, but this will end if you uninstall the new version.) Looking forward to seeing your screenshots!

I found it far too complicated for my simple requirements, difficult to choose the correct tab to set up the parameters required. If I were to re-install it, would it live alongside the older version without interfering with it? I could then make some trials of what I want to use it for and send any results to you.

I could not get it to do that with the new version. In fact, I couldn't seem to find the correct tab in the left-hand box which would do exactly what the old version did - you seem to have changed that facility (but I may be wrong!)

If you could tell me in more detail what you where doing and the functions you used. You see, I have just recently made a pretty big change inside the code, and it is possible that there is still some bug left that I have not found. Any help is appreciated!

After all your work compiling the application I expect what I use it for is employing only a tenth of its power and doesn't reflect the creativity you put into it.
