SimpleProgramDebugger 1.0
A tiny, portable (and very basic) debugger

SimpleProgramDebugger is a tiny tool which can display the main debugging events in a process: Load DLL, Unload DLL, Create Thread, Create Process, Exit Thread, Exit Process, Exception and Debug String.

As usual with a debugger, you're able to attach to a running process, or start a new process in debugging mode. You can't then control anything, so it's just a matter of watching as debugging events listed as they happen: event time, type, thread ID, memory address, file name and "More Information". Detach from the process when you're done, and the report can be saved as a TXT, CSV, XML or HTML file.

If you think this sounds highly technical, then you're right. Debuggers are used by developers for low-level analysis and troubleshooting, and most of the details here will be utterly meaningless to anyone else (even Windows and PC experts).

Still, SimpleProgramDebugger can occasionally provide interesting information about a program. We used it to launch our Firefox installation, for example, and found previously unseen "debug string" messages including "Failed to load native module at path...", "Could not read chrome manifest 'file@///" and "...could not create service for entry...". Are these messages normal? We've no idea, but if Firefox were misbehaving then this is just the type of information which might point us in the right direction.

Verdict:

It's as basic as its name suggests, but SimpleProgramDebugger can still occasionally be a helpful troubleshooting tool for technical users.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
