I have upgraded my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Now the RegExp Find & Replace app takes almost a minute (or more) just to load. Does anyone have advice on what to do about this?
This has been already mentioned in this thread and in the Windows Defender Issue section of the add-on's web page.

2 quick questions...

Would this script be able to sort strings within the a field? For instance, I have certain tags that I've added to them for various reasons. (The amount of tags exceed amount of custom fields, so that is not an option) Since I've added these tags at various times, I'd like to go through and sort them into alphabetical order.

Also, would this script be able to add a new line for each tag within the comment field?

Thanks!

I would not say that it is impossible, but you will need to write a very complex VBScript.

That would be more easily, but it depends of that how you have separated tags. For example, if you have the "; " as a tag separator, you could try to replace "; " (without quotes) with "; " & vbCrLf. VBScript expression should be turned on.

Hi,
I have been using this excellent script for several years now. Today, I installed F-Secure SAFE suite of security apps, including "App and file control". This app has blocked the file RegExpReplace.vbs with a description:
Worm:W32/Njw0rm is a detection for maliciously modified shortcut (.LNK) files that are designed to trick users into unwittingly launching the NjW0rm file.

I think this may be a false positive, as no other AV programs have detected or blocked it. Can I just have some assurance that it's absolutely safe?

Thanks

I don't know what kind of assurance you expect from me. I am here for more than 10 years, with more than 3000 posts, and almost 20 add-ons. For all those years nobody complained about the safety of my add-ons, excluding those reports about F-Secure that I have mentioned in the Notice section of the add-on's web page.

Besides, my add-ons could be reviewed for malicious code by anyone who knows VBScript.

Hi,
My post was not intended to offend you, as the author of the add-on, so I apologise if it did. As I said in my original post I think the add-on is excellent. I was just wondering if anyone else was using your add-on along with F-Secure and had noticed the same file blocking. That's all. I will whitelist your add-on in F-Secure. Have a good day.

It's all right, I am not offended, although I don't like if someone is suspicious about my behavior. I am the one who don't like malicious software either and I think the world would be much better place without it. I don't like having installed firewall and anti-virus software who slows down my computer and takes 1GB on its hard disk just to be safe of those rotten apples.

Yes, there was reports about F-Secure in this thread, just use the search tool of the forum and you will find them.

This add-on is very powerful and I use it quite often to move information from one field to an other (like feat. artist).
I would have been great to add the capability to move information in one step, with presets I have to use copy first and remove in a second step.

I have just installed the new version and I realize that it's a already feature of the registered version... great job !

Recently formatted my computer & can't remember how I created a custom preset for this. All I'm looking to do is to add the artist name before the album title. Any help's appreciated!
