TZipIcon.gif (1095 bytes)

This is our tool, but we think it is a good one.  TaskZip is a system agent that will automatically archive specified files and folders into a single zip file (pkzip compatible format). You can backup across a network, or from computer to computer. You can create and schedule an unlimited number of backup jobs, each containing as many folders with wildcards or files as you want.

iconWhisper.gif (1110 bytes)

is is a great password storage utility to protect logins and passwords for all of your various website accounts, windows accounts, etc.

iconWinzip.gif (1040 bytes)

is is the best zipping tool out there; the one that started them all.  It is shareware there (but very reasonably priced).  See UltimateZip, Freezip, Enzip, or Zip Central for freeware equivalents.

Testing Tools

BuggitIcon.gif (1189 bytes)

This is our tool, but we think it is a good one.  Buggit manages bugs, issues, and features throughout the software development process.  It includes many powerful reports and graphs; supports multiple project databases, supports multiple users, and is loaded with features.  Come check it out (requires MS-Access 97 or 2000).

iconDLLShow.gif (1079 bytes)

DLL Show:
This excellent utility
is a small freeware utility that displays a list of all tasks and processes currently running on your MS Windows 95 system.  It can show DLL Dependencies,, show Process Information about all running tasks (including process name, process ID number, task priority, number of threads, etc.). It also shows Module Information about each DLL module (including the DLL name, module ID number, number of process references, total number of references, amount of memory used, etc.)   Finally, it shows Version Information for all running processes and DLL modules.

iconFileMon.gif (1155 bytes)

Filemon is a GUI/device driver combination that together monitor and display all file system activity on a system. It has advanced filtering and search capabilities that make it a powerful tool for exploring the way NT works, seeing how applications use the files and DLLs, or tracking down problems in system or application configurations.

iconExamDiff.gif (1045 bytes)

This is the best Diff-ing tool I have come across. Unlike all others, this one displays the two files being compared side by side in two separate panes. This enables you to easily see additions, deletions, or changes to either file. It is far more intuitive than Microsoft's WinDiff (comes with C++, NT, etc.) and other related diff tools.
A similar product called WDiff can be downloaded from

This is a must have for data geeks, testers, and developers.

iconProcView.gif (928 bytes)

Process Viewer:
PrcView is a freeware process viewer utility that shows comprehensive information about running processes. This information includes such details as the creation time, version and full path for each DLL used by a selected process, a list of all threads, memory blocks and heaps. PrcVIew also allows you to kill and attach a debugger to a selected process. PrcView runs on both Windows 95/98 and Windows NT platforms and includes Windows and command-line version of the program.

iconRegMonitor.gif (1145 bytes)

Registry Monitor:
RegMonEx is a registry monitoring tool. Once running it can capture all calls to any registry releated API function.  When RegMonEx is running "Capture" should be enabled by default.  If somehow the driver could not be loaded "Capture" may be disabled.  In this case make sure the driver is in the same directory as the executable and you use the appropriate version matching your OS.
Once "Capture" is enabled RegMonEx captures all accesses to the registry.  With "Events" "Filter" you can define a filter, so not all regitry accesses will be captured.  With "View" "Filter" you can define a view filter, so only selected items will be displayed.

Test Case Manager:
Test Case Manager (TCM) is a tool designed for software test engineers to organize test cases for storage and execution logging. Test cases are written up in a standard format and saved into the system. Test cases can be organized by level (Smoke, Critical Path, Acceptance Criteria, Suggested), by area (GUI breakdown, installation, data, etc.), by status (pass, fail, untested, etc.), or other breakdown criteria. Once test cases are built, testers use TCM to track and report success or failure of test cases. TCM provides an unlimited number of central, multi-user databases, each of which will support an entire test team. TCM is intended for use by small to midsize software development companies or organizations. TCM was designed to be easy to learn and use. Most features are implemented as intuitive wizards for users to step through.

Development Tools

iconAXIcons.gif (1117 bytes)

Wow!  What an icon editor.  This is a magnificent application.   Every developer should have this icon editor.

iconGKSetup.gif (1092 bytes)

This is a wonderful setup utility.  It is simple, yet fairly powerful (especially for the freeware/shareware price tag).  It handles readme files, license files, shortcut icons, target and default install directories, and even uninstallation options.  It will even run your own executable at install AND another user specified executable at uninstall.  This is a must have for easily writing installation packages.

iconIconSucker.gif (1028 bytes)

Most application files (*.exe) and many application extension files (*.dll) on your harddrive contain one or more icons in them. Icon Sucker makes it easy for you to "suck" those icons out and save them as either a standard Windows icon (*.ico) or a standard Windows bitmap (*.bmp) or copy the icon to the clipboard as a bitmap.
To suck an icon from a file use the file controls to select the drive, directory, and file from which you want to suck the icon. If the file contains one or more icons they will be displayed in a horizontally scrolling view area along the bottom of the "Icons" tab.
