The download seems to have worked just fine. I’m able to open an old file from the File menu, from a folder, and to create a new file then save it.
Thanks so much for your help. EmEditor is one of three tools that I cannot live without. :)
I last tried to install an EmEditor update on 11/6/21 and got the same error.
Last successful install was 5/1/21 13:16 EmEditor 20.6.1
I’m sure SP1 was installed way back when. Win automatic updates have been turned on forever. When I google “API-MS-WIN-Core-Path|1-1-0.dll” I get links that offer to fix the problem.
Because of the way that Win presents the list of updates I can’t search it or export it. Is there a place where I can export the list or search it?
Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. I’ve got what I need.
This is great and very useful. What I’m really looking for is a regex that returns the phone number with no punctuation. That is:
+1(123) 456-7890 >>> RegEx >>> 11234567890
Maybe this is not possible?
Hi, Here’s what I am running from Startup:
“C:\Program Files\EmEditor\EmEditor.exe” D:\BobBootLog.txt /mf “D:\My Macros\AddTimestampLine.jsee”
Thanks Stefan, It helped a lot.
I have a limited repertoire of Regex that I use all the time s+ wasn’t in it before.
This is very useful. Google changed the toolbar a few years ago and I have been wondering what happened to the ability to search a specific site.
I had found the dictionary but was a little bit shy of the .bin format. I guess that’s just a way to do double-byte characters.
Thanks. I found a macro that does it quite nicely: XMLFormatter.jsee

I just today used the “Repeat the first line as header” check box and it worked great. Exactly what I needed.
I have not used EmEditor Betas before and have a few questions:
- Does the install default to a different location from the current EmEditor? If not, and I put it somewhere else do the two versions get along?
If I install it on top of my current production version will that work? Can I roll it back?
Does the beta alter my current configurations, macros, etc?
Thanks… BobJuly 23, 2015 at 2:13 pm in reply to: Split files and add header causes "embedded newlines" #20242
One other thing: is it possible to customize and set defaults for the Splitter?
It’s a fabulous tool.

Ah yes… Now I see it. $(FirstLine) works perfectly. Sorry for the hassle.

Actually, what seems to have happened is that only the first 260 characters (original was 400) were pasted into the Insert Header dialog.
Here is the original that I was pasting:
“ID”,”UserID”,”LastName”,”FirstName”,”ENTITY_TP”,”CandID”,”CMTE_ID”,”AMNDT_IND”,”RPT_TP”,”TRANSACTION_PGI”,”IMAGE_NUM”,”TRANSACTION_TP”,”NAME”,”CITY”,”STATE”,”ZIP_CODE”,”EMPLOYER/OCCUPATION”,”TRANSACTION_DT”,”TRANSACTION_AMT”,”OTHER_ID”,”Party”,”memo_CD”,”memo_text”,”SUB_ID”,”CYCLE”,”TargetID”,”Contact ID CS”,”Committee ID CS”,”Other Committee”,”MOC Salesforce ID”,”Last Name”,”Source – Added From”
I can understand how the truncation would have caused a cascading problem. Is there a size limit to the header and footer text fields in the dialog box?
I did some further testing and found that $(Clipboard) worked just fine. $(CurText) also worked just fine.
Hi Stefan, I solved it. See my other posts. Perhaps our postings crossed in the ether,
PS: Control Panel > Clock, Language… > Change Keyboards… > Change Keyboards… > Change Keyboards Button
The answer is: My win7 was shipped with the US-International Keyboard. When changed to just US the problem goes away.
Not unreasonable to want to know version etc:
EE Version 14.4.2
To my knowledge I have no snippets
This is a recently rebuilt after a crash computer. Previously I had the same version. This was a clean, new install.
It is as if there is an accenting feature turned on:
Enter the sequence: double quote and space > get a double quote
Enter the sequence: double quote and E > get an E with umlaut Ë
Enter the sequence: double quote and A > get an A with umlaut Ä
There could be a windows “Feature” that is doing this.
Perfect. How cool is that? Skipping steps and solving a problem all at the same time!
The problem that EmEditor has is that there is so much functionality that it is hard to explain it all. I mean this most sincerely as a compliment.
Thanks again for a great product that solves lots of problems for me at a reasonable price.
That does not sort the selected column but rather the first column. Or, maybe the whole file, it’s not clear.
I also have a shortcut that runs at startup:
“C:Program FilesEmEditorEmEditor.exe” D:BobBootLog.txt /mf “D:My MacrosAddTimestampLine.jsee”
This used to run, insert the line, set the cursor at the end of the last line of data, not the last line of the file, and leave the focus on the EmEditor window. It still adds the date/time stamp but the cursor is at the top and there is no focus.
I just tried this with v13 beta and still no focus. I tried double clicking the tray icon to open a new window, tried double clicking a .txt file, and tried opening a file from the recent files list in the tray.
All opened the file but none retained focus.
v13 worked fine with 1M records and with 4.1M. Filesize is 1.4GB.
I was able to open the file(s), select a column, and sort. The sort took a while but not too long, which I expected.
My admittedly very nitpicky observations:
I’d like to preserve the first row if it contains headings.
I’d like to see the Select, Sort commands available as toolbar buttons.
That said, this is really wonderful and helps to solve a big problem for me.
btw, the files I am working with are public data if you need some big files to work with.
Actually, what I tried yesterday was 1000 records. Should that work?
That’s right. The first attempt was with 1M records. I did try it with 10K records and that did not work either.
I’ll try smaller later today.
