Object Media is pleased to be able to provide some of the software tools we have developed for free. Some of these tools are provided with source code, some are not.
There is no charge for these tools, they are provided as found, with no warranty, express or implied. We hope you will find them useful.
All these tools were developed to solve a development need, or to provide a test harness for a DLL that was under development. As a result, some of the features are incomplete or missing because our development needs were more pressing than completing the tool. In addition some shortcuts were taken when creating these tools, so they are not as well engineered or as well documented as a tool we would develop for a client.
If you need a software tool developed, a small one like those shown here, or a larger product such as the memory leak detection tool we developed for Software Verification Limited, contact us for a discussion of your needs: sales [at] objectmedia [dot] ltd [dot] uk.
Whilst we make every attempt to ensure that our machines are kept virus free and we believe that the binaries available for download from our website are virus free, we cannot guarantee it. If you have any doubt please scan the binaries for viruses before using them, or download the source code and build the programs yourself.
Tools with source codeFor the tools that are provided with source code, you are free to modify and amend the source code as you see fit. Should you make improvements or find any bugs, we would be pleased to update the source code listed here for others to download.
Tools without source codeFor the tools without source code, if you want to see the source code, contact Object Media for licensing options.
Common FilesMost of the tools listed here are written using C++ and MFC, using Microsoft Visual Studio on Windows NT 4.0. Some of the tools are compiled as ANSI and some are compiled as UNICODE. Most of the programs will run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
We have updated the website to provide installers for the software rather than a zip file for you to download. The installers will only install on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP and above.
