Nicely spoken about the Mac vs PC thing. I agree completely. I currently work for a college IT department. Our "Mac guy" does all his work on his Mac....running a windows VM because the Mac just doesn't cut it functionality-wise. The netAdmin got mad at windows 10, converted to mac, got even angrier at macOS and went BACK to windows! Anyway, i'm prettymuch kicking a dead horse.

I run lots of things. This laptop runs win 10, my desktop runs 8.1u1 because I haven't had the time to wipe it for win 10 yet, I have a couple older machines that run various linux distros, and one powerPC iMac G5 that the aforementioned "mac guy" gifted to me....too slow for macOS so I put mint linux on it (much faster).

Long story short, from time to time, I run everything because its my job to know how.

Haha well I found the place and thought that it was kinda cool. Then I changed jobs from the one that brought me to find this place so I forgot about it for a couple months. I had thought about just dumping my thoughts relating to stuff like this into here, both to help me organize them a little better but also to share them. I'll get a forum of my own for this someday haha but thats not a top priority for me right now.

Computers and Technology / Another useful "file explorer"
« on: January 07, 2016, 11:30:09 am »
Here's just a simple batch script that I found on the internet and changed slightly for my own use. It uses powershell to invoke the openfiledialog() function. This is extremely useful in situations where windows explorer is unavailable on a system, either because of an infection or because its server core edition and thus missing or something along those lines.

Code: [Select]
@echo off
color 0a
echo Errors and messages will be outputted here.
set filename=
set ps_cmd=powershell "Add-Type -AssemblyName|Out-Null;$f=New-Object System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog;$f.Filter='All files (*.*)|*.*';$f.showHelp=$true;$f.ShowDialog()|Out-Null;$f.FileName"

for /f "delims=" %%I in ('%ps_cmd%') do set "filename=%%I"

if defined filename (
    start %filename%
goto top

Maybe someone else can use it!

Yeah the internet sucks doesn't it? In other news I'm glad I found this place. This feels like something I would make and the type of content I would have if I had time. Thanks for your fixed progman and winfile btw  :D

EDIT: "...attachments directory is not writeable!"
