Rob van der Woude's Scripting Pages

News Page

On this page I'll report on changes to my web site or related news items.

Don't expect a full-blown weblog, more like a list of highlights in shorthand.


For a file based list of changes look at the What's New list.

Use ChangeDetection's button, located at the bottom of each page, to receive an e-mail when that particular page changes, with the changes highlighted.
Note, however, that this could mean subscribing to 439 individual webpages (besides hundreds of source text files), and still you wouldn't get notified of new pages. By subscribing to this news page only, you'll be notified of all "important" updates and changes and new pages.

Note: Do not try to subscribe to the What's New list; even without any changed page at all, this list will automatically change almost every day!

ResetDevices.bat is a new batch file to remove some or all disconnected devices.
It "evolved" from the now 13 years old RenewUSB.bat, but unlike the latter, ResetDevices.bat isn't limited to USB devices.
Both use Microsoft's DEVCON tool; if DEVCON isn't found, the batch files will prompt you to download it.
• Oops, ResetDevices.bat's first bug has been fixed: it would ignore doublequoted command line arguments (i.e. filters) if combined with unquoted command line arguments (i.e. options).
• While working on ResetDevices.bat, I also updated the DEVCON download link in RenewUSB.bat.
However, you should seriously consider not using RenewUSB.bat, unless you still use Window 2000 or XP...
ResetDevices.bat is definitely preferred!
