Description: PPCContactsMgr is a plugin for the Outlook contacts. It allows to select multiple contacts at once for deletion. Now it allows also to add phone numbers from calls history and received SMS. And recently, beam several contacts and add several contacts to SIM.

Version 1.6

A lot of people asked me if it was possible to beam several contacts at once or add several contacts to the SIM card at once and voila... It's possible now.

- Add Selected contacts to SIM
- Beam Selected contacts



Version 1.5

- added # and * in valid characters (requested by Bigix)

- application is translatable

Bigix wanted this tool to be translated in italian. So we worked together in order to have the tool translated.
Now everybody can have this tool in its own language thanks to mui resource dlls.

Here in attachment is the french version available.(Bigix will probably provide the italian version)
Both files (PPCContactsMgr.dll and PPCContactsMgr.dll.[LCID].mui) should be put in the \Windows directory.

The mui resource dll is just a resource dll containing all the strings used in the application.
Just use a resource editor (http://www.btinternet.com/~wilsoncpw/xn_resourceeditor_setup.exe) and translate the strings in your language. (See attached text file)

The number in hexadecimal in the mui resource dll filename is the default language id used on the pda.

for italia it is:410
for france it is: 40C

All LCIDs can be found here : http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/r...etup/lcid.mspx

If no mui is provided, the default resource strings from PPCContactsMgr.dll are used. (So English)


Version 1.4

Shows calls where the sender or number field is empty.


Version 1.3

2 menus items have been added to the standard menu and to the contact summary menu. (requested by lvlx)
- Add Phone From Calls History
- Add Phone From SMS

When you receive a phone call, or an SMS, you probably want to store the sender to the contacts, this is already possible. But often the contact already exists and you want to add a new number. This is what these new functions do.



Version 1.0 -> 1.2:

2 menus items have been added to the standard menu.
- Select All Contacts
- Delete Selected Contacts

If you select multiple contacts with the stylus, you will be capable of deleting them.

Cheers

ps.: the cab file should be copied on the ppc and installed from there. The PPCContactsMgr.dll (plugin) is installed in the windows directory (/Windows)

Cheers,

.Fred

ps.: cab file is in zip file, also reg file and dll (if you don't want to use the cab file). Some screenshots can be found in the zip as well.

pps.: if PPCContactsMgr is already installed, in order to upgrade it, poutlook.exe shouldn't run.

1) Just use my Task Manager, select the processes tab, look for poutlook.exe, select it and click on terminate. If the process can't be closed, it will be killed.

2) In order to uninstall the plugin

a) "terminate" poutlook.exe
b) delete the PPCContactsMgr.dll located in \Windows
c) in the zip file, there is the reg file for the plugin, so use a reg editor, to remove the keys found in that file.

Cheers,

.Fred

Great Stuff DotFred!

I use your Taskmanager v2.3 and ContactsManager v1.2 in my Roms, I will update my Roms with this new version of this little app, it's great!

If I want to upgrade it wihout using the CAB, I only need to replace the .dll file and add the new Registry settings to my Rom? Is this correct?


Thanks a lot,

Molski

Hi Molski,

Glad to hear (read) that!

Yes indeed, because there are new entries in the registry.

Thanks for the info dotFred will try this one out... it seems worth just to be able to select multiple contacts.
