Executor Information

Publisher's Description:

A multi purpose launcher and a more advanced and customizable version of windows run.

The program originated as I was sick of spending too much time searching for programs through my ever growing windows start-menu, and also I missed a tool that could ease and optimize my daily work flow. There was of course already programs like this available, but each had it's annoyance or missing features or too(!) geeky.


Keywords have properties like shortcuts, and you can for example drag-drop a shortcut/file/folder/favorite to add it as a keyword.
Auto-completion for keywords, file system and history (can also be configured).
Url detection, Enter URLs directly (like www.google.com, mail.google.com, google.com or http://www.google.com).
Keywords support parameters. Example "google latest executor" "wiki nirvana".
Besides keywords Executor can also optionally and dynamically add matching start-menu items, control panel items and other handy items to the drop-down/list.
Ability to add your own paths to scan for user defined file extensions.
Keyword "find [text]" for using Windows Instant Search (Vista/Win7) feature or Windows Desktop Search (WDS for XP etc.).
Can add keyword integration with popular services like GMail, Twitter, GCal, RTM and many others (see forums for howto's, tutorials and tips).
Optional show icon for current keyword/input.
Optional show drop-down box for current keyword/input (auto-completion).
Optional drop-down box can be set to auto-open (like windows run) displaying auto-completion suggestions.
Optional Vista like list displaying matching items.
Layout can be customized. Set colors, font, dimensions, position, transparency and more.
Skinable. Supporting alpha blending effects and free positioning of all elements.
Each keyword can be assigned a hotkey, so Executor can also perform like many popular hotkey managers.
Many settings to customize the program as you like.
Can be launched from an user defined hotkey.
One keyword or text input can start multiple keywords/urls/programs/documents/files etc. Example one keyword opens three websites and/or programs.
Each keyword have properties like optional group (to organize into groups), customizable icon and other properties.
A number of special commands (like for example pause and replace tag with parameter).
Optional windows context-menu integration (as another way of easily adding new keywords).
Optional show title for the current input.
Can import keywords from windows start-menu.
Can auto import keywords from an url on startup, so you can share keywords between different Executor installations (for example for cooperate use).
Executor has a number settings on how you want it to find desired item(s). Text could "start with" or "contain text" (substring) or short form detection (for example typing ffox for firefox).
All file-paths can be auto-completed (also when file-path is a parameter).
Keywords to manipulate the current active window (center, resize to specific size, maximize width or height etc).
Special keywords to list (and open) running applications, text previously copied to clipboard and recent documents. Can also strip formatting from clipboard text.
Many special keywords like for example lock computer, restart, shutdown, standby, turn off monitor, mute sound, show date/time/week number etc.
Shortcut keys for faster navigation.

Set simple a simple alarm, timer, stop-watch (with optional alert sound).
Pressing enter with no valid input will launch first suggested item (optional).
Be able to grab text from hidden launched console applications and display text in input or in multi-lined text.
Several hidden experimental/minor settings to play with (Example show time/date/other stuff when idle).
Plus more...
Free for commercial use.

Changelog for this release:

Added Pressing next delimiter (TAB by default settings) on a keyword that points to a folder will expand the folder in the input and list.
Added a "Automatic backup" setting under "misc" enabled by default. This will make a backup of executor.ini each time Executor is closed under the following conditions: No backup file was found, backup file is at least two days old, executor has been closed at least 5 times after a new executor.ini was written (this is so a new ini (maybe result of old being corrupt) just doesn't overwrite a possible useful backup right away).
Added When Executor creates a new "executor.ini" but detects a backup, a notification about this will be displayed on startup.
Added $SENDTEXT$ this will send text from the parameter of the keyword that contains the command $SENDTEXT$ to the current focused window. For example I could make a keyword called "signature" with command "$SENDTEXT$" and parameter "Martin Bresson{ENTER}Author of Executor". When triggering this keyword it will send this text to the current focused window. I could also assign a hotkey to the keyword so I wouldn't have to open Executor to activate the keyword. special keys are also supposed example new line is {ENTER}. Other examples {TAB}, {F1}, {ESC}, {END}, {PGDN} etc.
Added new tag $PASTE2$ that is probably most useful with hotkeys. $PASTE2$ will paste the previous text that was in the clipboard (not the current). So for example we can create a new keyword called "pasteprev" with command "$PASTE2$" and hotkey "CTRL+ALT+V". Pressing CTRL+ALT+V will then paste the previous text from your clipboard.
Added tag $PASTE3$ and $PASTE4$.. Like $PASTE2$ but will return text number 3 and 4 from your clipboard history.
Added optional parameter to $WCENTER$ ("center" keyword). The optional parameter is the monitor number you would like to center the window on. Monitor numbers starts from 1 (meaning 1 is your primary one). Monitor numbers can be seen in your windows display settings.
Added $DATAFOLDER$ tag. Making a keyword with this as command opens the folder containing executor.ini etc.
Added optional browser now supports $D$, $H$ and environment path (%systemroot% etc).
Improved opening of items slightly for better support of programs that are iconic (system tray apps/programs for example) will in Win7/Vista open directly instead of sometimes only being opened and highlighted in the taskbar.
Improved more safe data file writing to avoid executor.ini getting corrupt.
Improved clipboard sniffer recovery code.
Improved Executor recompiled under an updated compiler and a couple of updated libraries.
Improved "Don't display scrollbar" setting is now enabled by default on new install.
Fixed bug fix with a incorrect buffersize that could in rare cases cause access violation.
Fixed disabling clipboard sniffer in settings now really ignores clipboard. Before Executor would still hook into the clipboard and listen to messages but just not keep track of them.

Restriction :

Limited functionality under 64bit os.;
Limited functionality under win95/win98.
