I've written my first file-system plugin and just published it on totalcmd.net.
At the moment it is still in beta state, but it is quite stable.
What is Services2?
- It's a file-system plugin that can list, control and manage services registered in the local or remote system. It runs on Windows 2000 and later, both 32 and 64 bit systems.
- It is an alternative to the existing Services plugin (Version 2.4) written by Serge Kandakov (KaSA).
- Unicode capable (this should be implemented correctly).
- 64 Bit version of this plugin to use in Total Commander x64.
- Translation to other languages possible (Chinese, Danish, Dutch, German, Hungarian, Italian and Russian are included in the package).
- Support for custom columns, including default view.
- Additional startup type "Automatic (Delayed)" on Vista and higher.
- Analyze service executables with internal and external tools (version 0.5.0 or higher)
- Manage services on remote systems (version 0.6.0 or higher)
- Show service PIDs (process IDs) (version 0.8.0 or higher)
- and many more (see totalcmd.net for an almost complete list)
Please feel free to test it, comment, discuss, report bugs and so on .
If you want to make a translation of this plugin to your own language:
- Make a copy of "English.lng" to "<your_language>.lng". Be sure to use the language's English name for the file name!
- Open "<your_language>.lng" in your favorite editor. The .lng files should be encoded in Unicode (UTF-16), so please make sure to use an editor with Unicode capability.
- Translate all strings. Please ensure you don't have duplicate keyboard shortcuts for labels, buttons etc. within the same dialog.
- Add the language's name in the native language to section [Language].
(optional) Add your name, nick and/or the date of the translation to section [Language].
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 with pluginst.inf and Services2.lng (custom columns). Note: These two files should be encoded in ANSI.
- Send the new language files to the e-mail address mentioned in the Readme, or post a link to the file in this thread.
