root root
Released on Februari 6th, 2011


How often do you launch the command prompt while you actually needed an elevated command prompt? And how often are you working within a regular command prompt and need to run an elevated command form there? Well, it happens me all the time, so I decided to create a little command line tool which is capable to solve both issues. I have named the utility root, a little similar like the tool used under UNIX and Linux.

The source code is included within the package.

The program requires the .NET 2.0 Framework. The complete C# source code is included within the archive. You can find the necessary .NET Framework components here:

MagazineMaker MagazineMaker v1.3
Released on August 1st, 2010


The concept of e-books is quite familiar by now, but lately I came across several other kinds of e-books which are also known as magazines. A magazine is like an e-book, but it uses pictures instead of written text. MagazineMaker is able to convert your images into a single document (magazine). The supported formats used are the JPEG, Joint Photographic Experts Group, and the PNG, Portable Network Graphics, image formats. The output document format is PDF, Portable Document Format, created by Adobe. All used formats are cross-platform available which makes both input and output files extremely interchangeable.

The output PDF-document can be adjusted using the options menu. Most available options are supported like: The program requires the .NET 2.0 Framework. The complete C# source code is included within the archive. You can find the necessary .NET Framework components here:

Iconizer Iconizer v1.0
Release on December 20th, 2007


Have you ever been in the situation that you created a small application for some colleagues which they probably require for just a few weeks or months? If so, when you were in that situation did you actually gave the application identity by including an icon? I’ve been in that situation more than once and creating, or misusing an existing icon, can still be rather time consuming. Especially for those applications I created a small program which can simply turn a photo into an icon which can be used in your application or as shortcut-icon right away.
