User Reviews

  • I love that it's portable and can run via gui and command line. Great tool! I just miss the function to start a process minimized.

  • Great program. .NET 3 is just one of the options browse all files and you can get .NET 2,3, or 4 versions, or source-code if you prefer.

  • great

  • Because of its use of dotnet3, this tool is partially unusable.

  • Hello. I realy like you project. I have it in use on a terminal-server. is it possible to remove it from the taskbar und move it into the systray? So it would be perfect when the File Watcher starts when he is not present on the desktop or the taskbar. Yust only minimized with a icon in the systray. Many thanks, Thomas
