About this version

This is the tenth release of this application. In this version we made the following changes.

  • Add the function to remove the product installer files
  • Add related file size information in product details
  • Supports high DPI with icon display
  • Add support button for development

The initial purpose of this app is to remove unnecessary installers and free up storage space. All the features of "Simple Adjustment" for this main purpose was completed in the previous version. With this release, all the adjustment features we planned as advanced features are available.

Changes

App

Added advanced features and improved the UI.  The following is the main window.

App main window (Version 1.0.0)

The main window has not changed from the previous version (0.9.0). This app can be launched with normal user privileges, but it must be launched with administrator privileges to properly display all installer information. If you have not started with administrator privileges, you will be asked if you want to restart with administrator privileges immediately after startup.

Display and analysis functions

  • Add related file size information in product details
  • Supports high DPI with icon display
  • Add the support button for development
  • UI improvements
Add related file size information in product details

The product installer consists of an msi file and related files. However, versions up to 0.9 did not display the size of related files. Depending on the installer, the related file size may be quite large. Therefore, in this version, the related file size information is added to the product detail window and product list window. This version also adds these related file sizes to the total size of the product installer.

Supports high DPI with icon display

On each screen of this application, icons are displayed using icon format files (ico files). The icon file contains images of multiple sizes (16x16, 24x24, 48x48, 32x32, 64x64, 256x256, etc.) to can choose the suitable size for display. This app uses WPF to implement the GUI. WPF can display icon format files. However, just specifying the file path of the icon format file does not automatically select the icon image of the suitable size for display. As a result, some of the icons appear truncated or the icons appear blurry. In this version, the process to select the suitable size for the icon to display is added. Also, the icon image of suitable size is selected even in a high DPI environment.

Add the support button for development

This app is available for free. If you like the app and want to support development, you can support our development costs. Therefore, we added a support button to the main screen. You can select Japanese yen, US dollar, or euro as the currency. This support button is implemented using the PayPal function.

UI improvements

Made some UI improvements. - Add icons that represent functions to each button - Show installer app icon in product details (only if installer has icon) - etc

"Remove the selected products" button has been added to the product list window.

"Remove the installer file of the selected product" button on the product list window

This is a feature that removes the product installer files (msi file and related files).

This function removes the installer file, so once it is executed, you cannot uninstall the product or change the configuration. You will need the backup files in order to be able to uninstall and change the configuration again. By restoring the backup files to its original location, you will be able to uninstall and change the configuration again.

Therefore, this function always creates backup files. The backup files can also be saved in an external storage such as a USB memory, so you can increase the free space in the system storage (C:).

Use this feature only if you understand the above and want more temporary storage space. Also, please do not lose the backup files in case you need to uninstall the product.

Select the product to be removed by checking the check box at the beginning of the item in the product list. Click the button to show the confirmation window.

Confirmation

To use this function, you need to launch the application with administrator privileges. It is needed administrator rights to make changes in the C:WindowsInstaller folder.

If the application is not started with administrator privileges, there is a "Restart this app with administrator privileges" button as shown in the window, so please restart with administrator privileges.

"Restart this app with administrator privileges" button on the remove confirmation window

If the application has been started with administrator privileges, the "Restart this app with administrator privileges" button will not be displayed, as shown in the window below.

Items selection

The confirmation window lists the products you have selected to remove. If you want to exclude some products from deletion, you can do so by unchecking the check box at the beginning of the item.

Size to be removed

Below the list is the total size of the installer files and associated files for the checked products. After executing the removing, the free space will be increased by this size.

Backup setting

This confirmation window contains settings for backing up files. Retaining a backup allows you to revert in order to be able to uninstall and make configuration changes. Therefore it is highly recommended to keep a backup.

The following two folders are created in the backup folder.

    • Installer folder
    • InstallerAdjustmentApp folder

In the former folder, product installer files removed from the C:WindowsInstaller folder are backed up with the same folder structure. If you want to restore using a backup, you can restore this folder simply by copying it to the C:Windows folder.

In the latter folder, information about the removed product installer files (file path, file size, modification date, etc.) is saved as an XML file for each product installer. The file name will be in the format of Product_{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}.xml{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} is the product GUID of the product installer. From this file you can see what installer files and related files have been removed.

On the confirmation window, click the “Remove the product installer files” button to actually start the removing process.

Result window

The result window is displayed when the removing is completed. Successful and failed items are displayed separately. From this window, you can also open the backup folder with Explorer.
