PDF Form Test has been updated, it will now distinguish between unrestricted form fill software (i.e. Adobe and Foxit PDF Readers) and restricted software that will probably fail on calculations (e.g. browsers and file managers).

• I added a page with a simple PDF Form Test: all one needs to do is open the PDF, and it will tell whether your current PDF viewer is capable of handling interactive PDF forms or not.

Count.exe is a new tool to count either files or matching lines of text.
It is similar to using FIND.EXE /C inside a FOR /F loop, but it may make your batch code more readable.
Native code to count executables in C:\Windows\System32:
FOR /F %%A IN ('DIR /B C:\Windows\System32\*.exe ^| FIND.EXE /C /I ".exe"') DO SET Count=%%A
vs Count:
Count.exe C:\Windows\System32\*.exe
SET Count=%ErrorLevel%

Did I mention it also is a lot faster?
