Fixed a bug that caused the program to crash on Windows XP (and possibly on other Windows versions as well).

Well, turned out I got a little bug in the
version released yesterday that prevented the new options from working
I fixed it, now they should be working properly.

In this update I finally present a new version of the GUI, 1.04. It includes
a few improvements. It now supports the OCR
functions introduced in k2pdfopt 1.5. In order to use the Tessaract OCR engine you have to download and extract the
Tessaract language files. Click on the respective button in the GUI and choose the language of your document. The down-
load is started through your webbrowser. (As a reminder: The GUI does still not contain any network functions. If you
notice that it does, please do not use your version of the program but redownload it on this site. Your version might have
been compromised by malware.
After the download extract the archive to a location of your choice and select the base folder (which contains the tessdata
subfolder) in the GUI. You can then use the Tessaract engine of k2pdfopt. Environment variables are set accordingly and
automatically (this part needs administrator rights).
Two other functions (erase vertical lines and resize images to fit the output) were also added. Keep in mind that you can
always use additional, unsupported options through the "additional command line options" input box in the GUI.
If a new version of k2pdfopt is released and you are sick of the GUI complaining about the unsupported version, you may
add the filesize in bytes as a new key to the supportedfilesizes.ini with whatever key you like (e.g. Whatever=236512365).
If you miss any important options, please send me a message and I can add the respective option.

In this update I am releasing the source code of k2pdfoptgui. As you might
have noticed, in the last few month I couldn't find
a lot of time to work on the project and therefore everything kind of stalled. When a user of the program asked me if I would
consider releasing the source code, I saw that nothing really speaks against that.
Be warned that the code itself isn't really pretty...but it works, doesn't it.
Please read the README.txt included in the archive.
As promised, I just uploaded a new version of the GUI, which can be used
without drama with k2pdfopt v1.50. Please note,
that none of the new features are supported yet. I just modified the program to work with the new version.
But you will still find two new features: first, you can now drag&drop files you wish to convert into the List, and second I added
the "additional options" bar, which is a dirty workaround to allow you to use new features of k2pdfopt with the older version of the
GUI. Find the download below.
Hello. Just wanted to inform you, that I will try to fit in the changes that
k2pdfopt version 1.50 brought in due time.
I am currently very busy at work so I don't know when I'll come around to building a new version.
I will however upload a version that allows you to use the new k2pdfopt version with the GUI tonight, though without any
of the new features. This would go as pretty unsupported though, since I won't have checked, if there have been changes to
the old command line options. Additionally I can put in something like "additional options" where you can put in the command
line options for new features by hand as a workaround.
All the best
Attention: The base program, k2pdfopt, is
NOT included in the archives. Please download it from the author's website
