Visual Rename

Post by JimWilson » Wed 08 Apr, 2009 21:06

Over in the Russian forum there's a plugin called Visual Rename, which could be very helpful for me. I found two threads that discuss it: ... lit=visren

I can't find anything about it in the English forum though. Unfortunately, when I try to run it using FAR 1.75 RC 2556 I get a message saying there was an error running VisRen.dll. :( Does anybody know about this plugin, and if there's a way to get it to run with 1.75?

I was able to find what looks like the authors email address in the file but since there's no mention of the plugin in the English forum I suspect he might only speak Russian, so I figured it would probably be better to post a question here first.

Using the Far3wrapper made by Maximus5 you can load the Visual Rename plugin in FAR3.
You can find the Visual Rename HERE and Far3Wrapper HERE.

In order to make the VRname to work, first of all install the Far3wrapper, then rename the VisRen.dll file to VisRen.dl_ and create a new file called visrenloader.ini in the folder where visren.dl_ is containing the following code

Code: Select all

Description=Far 2.x plugin
RegRoot=Software\Far Manager\Plugins
Now copy the loader.dll file from the Far3wrapper to the folder where visren.dl_ is and rename it visrenloader.dll.
If you did everything well after restarting FAR3 you'll have a working "Visual renaming files" command in the plugins menu :D

I hope this helps.
Sorry for writing in English in the Russian forums, but i don't speak Russian and don't trust online translators. :D
