    Softpedia-CleanAwardHHK2HTML is a simple utility to extract index links from a Windows-compiled help index file to a standard HTML file.  The file extension of the compiled index file will be .hhk.  This file contains an XML-like structure that can be read using a standard text editor.  HHK2HTML scans these files and creates an HTML index based on the entries it finds.  Created for Mac users who cannot access .chm compiled help files.

    To use this utility, locate the .hhk file, specify an output filename and location, enter a title for your HTML document, then click the ‘Extract HTML’ button.  You can manually modify any HTML entries you see.  Once complete, click the ‘Save HTML to File’ button, and your new index file will be created.

  • BADb

    BADb (aka ‘Bad Bee’, aka Birthday/Anniversary Database) is a project of mine that has evolved out of another project to help to track birthdays and anniversaries for friends and family.  This program will help you to store names along with spouse names,  birthdates, and anniversary dates and also allow you to store email addresses to send an email to those who have a birthday or anniversary.

    This program will run in the Windows Taskbar and it will notify you by color-coding dates if there is a birthday or anniversary on the current date.  A list of these dates for the current month is shown so that you can plan ahead to celebrate these events.

    You can export/import your database to an Excel-based .csv file.  A help file is provided to explain the features included with this program.

  • PRUpdate

    PRUpdate is a project designed for program developers to add the functionality to your program of updating files online.  This program will do the work for you with a little setup of some configuration files and you only need to make a call to it from within your own program to launch an online updating utility.  A help file with an example is provided in this download to get you started.

    You can download version 2.7 here.

    Changes in v2.7 : Added server side option to prevent a message from appearing if there is no update available.

    Changes in v2.6 : Added ability for PRUpdate to either gracefully or forcefully shut down a process that needs to be updated before updating continues.  This feature will not work for items such as PDF or HTML help files as the loading application is not determined, but for main application executables, the processes can be closed to ensure that the updates are processed correctly.  Right-clicking in the update file list will present ‘Select/Unselect All’ menu choices.  A PRUWizard utility has been added to provide a graphical method for creating or modifying local or remote INI files for file updating.  MD5 hashes can be calculated automatically using this wizard.
