[Release] RmEmpty In "SendTo" style v1.3

Post by Kelsenellenelvian » Thu Aug 31, 2006 9:31 am

RmEmpty v1.2 by Douglas Good
Freeware

This program searches folders given on the command line for empty directories, and
removes them. Directories containing files are not removed, and no files are deleted.
The search is always recursive. Multiple folders can be specified on the command line.

Use RmEmpty /? for help if needed.

Syntax: RmEmpty folder1 folder2 folder3 ...

RELEASE HISTORY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

v1.0 Initial Release

v1.1 Fixed a bug that prevented the program from deleting anything under
windows NT.

v1.11 Changed the code so that the specified "root" directory, if empty after
all other deleting is done, will also be removed. If not, it won't be
touched. I.e. RmEmpty C:\FOO would not have deleted C:\FOO even if it was
empty. Now it will.

v1.2 Made some internal enhancements to the code which significantly reduced the
size of the executable; with an EXE compressor the size is now 37k as
compared to 129k before. Minor adjustments to help screen, but no functionality
changes.
I can find no actual homepage for this thing but it will remove all empty folders from any given dir all you need to do is right click on the desired folder and select SendTo->RmEmpty

Size - 39.4 kb MD5Hash = FC9389D0246A7B9A63378AF3E142E165

Ummm the one I made works fine but yours however is pretty borked you have:

in the target section = %programfiles%\Utilities\RMEMPTY.EXE it needs to be
%programfiles%\Utilities\rmempty\RMEMPTY.EXE

and in the stqart in section = %USERPROFILE%\Desktop it needs to be
%programfiles%\Utilities\rmempty

Also you forgot to have the file rmempty,pnf deleted during install.

Hey do you chat? Get a hod of me on pretty much any messenger.
