Installation and Deinstallation
ParSer does not need any installlation. Just copy the executable file ParSer.exe to a suitable path and place a shortcut into your favourite location.
A formal deinstallation is not required, just delete ParSer.exe and any shortcut to the file. ParSer has generated an .ini file or some entries in the registry, depending on the command line parameters described below. The .ini file may be deleted with any file manager, while the registry entries at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Michael Krämer Freeware\ParSer may be removed with regedit. You can as well start ParSer once with the command line parameters "-rc -rd -id" (see below). It won't hurt though, if the registry entries were not removed.
Command Line Parameters
ParSer supports a few command line parameters. These parameters are specified behind the pathname of ParSer in the "Target" field. That window opens when right-clicking on the ParSer icon and selecting the properties page. The image below was generated with a German version of Windows, so the titles for your version of Windows may be different. System parameters start with a $ sign, user parameters are not currently used by ParSer.
The following command line parameters are supported:
-$rc: clear registry entries for this program
All registry entries of this program are deleted. That is useful when ParSer is being deleted ("uninstalled") or if one wants to restart with a virgin version.
-$rd: disable use of the registry for this program
The registry is not used. ParSer will use the .ini file, unless -id is also specified.
-$rr: read initialization values from registry
The initialisation is read from the registry
-$rw: write initialization values back to registry
Modified values are written back to the registry
-$if="string": specify ini filename
This parameter specifies the path and the filename of the ini-file. If it is not specified, but use of an ini-file is enabled, ParSer.ini in the windows directory is used or created.
-$id: disable use of ini file for this program
ParSer does not use an ini-file. If -rd is also specified, ParSer does not store any initialisation values.
-$ir: read initialization values from ini file
The initialisation values are read from the ini-file.
-$iw: write initialization values back to ini file
Modified values are written back to the ini-file.
NOTE: avoid using registry and ini-file at the same time with the following exception:
-rr -iw to export registry to ini-file and
-ir -rw to export ini-file to registry
-$pp=n: set process priority for dialog (0:idle, 1:normal, 2:high, 3:realtime)
It is not useful to change the default priority of the dialog, therefore it is suggested not to use this parameter.
-$pt=n: set priority for processing thread (0:idle, 1:lowest, 2:below normal, 3:normal, 4:above normal, 5:highest, 6:time critical)
This setting changes the priority of the thread, which does the work. Normally, this parameter should also not be changed. Some searches can take a long time, however. In such a case a low priority keeps the system agile as ParSer runs in the background.
-$sx=n: set horizontal snap range for dialog in number of pixels. Dialog will snap to a horizontal edge if distance is smaller than this range.
-$sy=n: set vertical snap range for dialog in number of pixels. Dialog will snap to a vertical edge if distance is smaller than this range.
Note: Registry will be used by default to save and restore parameters, unless $rd is specified or support of an ini-file is selected.
