CodingFTP does is very simple: Help you to perform FTP operations automatically and flexibly. Drag & drop is a useful function, but itís really tedious if you need to do this hundreds of times a day. With Coding FTP, you can easily repeat all the operations you want, e.g. upload/download files, change file dates, change file permissions, delete file/folders, etc. And you can easily do all this by creating a simple script. Then, all you need to do is a simple button click.

Maybe you donít want to click a button? No problem! You can use any scheduler, e.g. Windows Task Scheduler, to automate the script. Now, you can focus on your work and let Coding FTP upload/download/delete files for you automatically.

Besides, Coding FTP also has an easy and powerful script languages, you can easily control the script to do what you wanted.

*****************************************
Edit:
One word of warning and that is if you hit the "Web update" button it then downloads and installs a newer version, so even if you carefully copied the licence key (for future use) it does not recognise that license key in the newer version and reverts back to a 21 day trial program with limited capabilities.

Well I just tried it and it doesn't seem to of had any detrimental effects on my PC.
I also activated "well just about everything" BB/ADSL booster etc, (actually there is quite a lot of possible quick-fix items)

It did a good job with cleaning and defraging the registry, as I recognised quite a few items that I know related to files that I had previously removed.

But obviously only time will tell.

********************************
Edit
Uninstalled the now new 21 day trial version and re-installed from the original DL without any problems.
Although this time I have also not selected the auto-update feature, just in case.

Certainly sounds like it could be a useful app,


 and so far it's rated very highly:


But, take a look at comment number 79.
It appears (if true) that comments may be being removed if they don't fall into the correct ethos of what they want us to read.

"Just of to install it now and give it a try" (I'll be back)

************************
edit
Installed and ran okay.
I chose to blend/fill in the centre part of a CD cover, the results were pretty good but a bit slow, so a lot of patience is needed.
The second attempt was just to remove a "small" amount of text from a DVD cover, this did it in the blink of an eye.

So, I think I will keep it, although how often it will get used is obviously too early to say, but well worth trying for yourself.

Tip:
There is NO obvious way to revert/undo any changes, but by closing just the picture with the small black X (underneath the main red X) this will in effect create a undo last action.

Kate that error message would suggest that you need to upgrade your graphics card to one that has the pixel shader stuff - I think that most modern ones too... not that I'm suggesting you're old fashioned, you understand.
