*****Corrupt Office Salvager 1.0.3 About and Instructions****** -----How to use this program------ 1. Click on the File Menu and choose Full Recovery or one of the two salvage methods. 2. Choose your Microsoft or Open Office file. 3. If you chose a salvage method, your extracted text will be displayed. If you chose a the Full Recovery choice the application will attempt to launch a recovered version with the software currently assigned as the default for the corrupt file's extension, odt, ods or odp. 4. If you chose a Salvage method, you can Edit, the text as desired. 5. With salvaged text, choose the Save menu choice on the File Menu and file to the name and file location you wish. -----About----- This program will extract the text from some corrupted or all healthy Microsoft Office and Open Office files (2.X and 3.X files) with the extensions .doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, odt, ods and odp as well as possibly the template and macro variants of these extensions such as dot, xlt and pps if they are changed to the correct corresponding extensions mentioned. It may succeed at doing so where MS Office Open Office itself fails to salvage text. It can also attempt to recover formatting in the form of a full Open Office file with a regular, odt, ods or odp extension. At this time there is no facility for recovering anything but basic formatting for Microsoft Office files through the previously mentioned text extractions although links are provided on the Alternatives menu. This program can be used as a viewer of text within healthy MS Office and Open Office files without having Open Office installed. The text extraction is accomplished with the use of the command line application, SILVERCODERS DocToText, CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2txt, Apache Tika and The Chicago Project extract. Write me for details about which is used for which extraction or look at the source in the Source folder. The reconstructed version of the Open Office file is accomplished by unzipping the Open Office file with the somewhat zip corruption immune 7z.exe unzipper. Once unzipped, the manifest/ manifest.xml file is replaced with a greatly simplified version as described here: http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=57600 If this application doesn't work, for Open Office files there are other things worth trying as summarized here: http://s2services.com/open_office.htm and other choices on the ALternatives Menu. Also check out the Alternatives Menu for other things to try for MS Office files including format recovery freeware listed there. ----Changes to 1.0.3---- 1. Changed the date of the S2SERVICES Recoveronix' Service coupon expiration from Nov 1, 2013 to Nov 1, 2014. 2. Signing the file seems to ruin it, so I didn't do it for this version. 3. Changed URL's of my software to point to the Sourceforge location. 4. Changed the icons to simpler ones. ----Changes to 1.0.2---- 1. Changed the date of the S2SERVICES Recoveronix' Service coupon expiration from May 1, 2013 to Nov 1, 2013. 2. Now signing both the setup executable and the uninstall file. ----Changes to 1.0.1---- 1. Made some additions to the Alternate Menu. Also changed the date of the S2SERVICES Recoveronix' Service coupon expiration from Nov. 1, 2012 to May 1, 2013. ----Changes to 1.0---- 1. Added a zip repair pretreatment using InfoZip zip.exe -FF command for all zip based file recoveries. 2. New icon. 3. Using 7zip as the the archive extractor now instead of CakeCMD or No Frills unzipper although the CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2txt still uses the same libraries as No-Frills unzipper did. 4. Preserved the do_not_remove folder with its manifest.xml contents during the installation routine. This issue and the next one originally prevented the corrupt Open Office recovery feature working in version 0.22. 5. Also fixed the preserving of the unzipped folder and its sevenzipcmd.exe contents as well as the support dll files in the installation routine. 6. Made a custom version of Apache Tika which only recovers text Word doc and PowerPoint ppt files which uses Java JRE 1.5 which is also included in its most bare bones fashined as allowed by the Java license. -----Credits----- This program is made by Paul D Pruitt (socrtwo) and uses the following command line applications in its operation: SILVERCODERS DocToText, xlhtml and ppthml from The Chicago project, the Apache Tika Project, Java JRE 1.5, CMD Corrupt OfficeOpen2txt, No-Frills Unzipper, Nirsoft's HTMLAsText, 7zip and InfoZip's Zip.
