Post-mortem (I forgot to post) but probably useful anyway.

This product sucks on XP. Here's why:
- All resources found are stored in the program folder. I don't want my C: drive fucked up by a stupid software. At least, these files should be in %USERPROFILE%.
- Does not find some resources. In one case, it did not found the basic program icons while reshacker did the job well.
- Cannot scan a single file.
- After scanning appears this OK button which function is unclear. Pressing it clears the window, LOL.
- Labels my C: drive as a "Diskette 5'O pouces". LOL^2
- If you're in trouble, go to the "trooble" web page. LOL^3

Somebody here lacks seriousness.

Didn't notice the max file size filter until someone noted it above.
Probably why the ones I was looking for did not show up.
therube, thanks for the Mozilla Video Cache link, worked great.
Funny how many times a free release here will cause me to try and like a completely different product.

Simple download, installation and registration. Ran a test search of C:/ drive and was amazed at all the files it found within a few seconds - mostly ICOs and BMPs. Should be a lot of fun with games.

LoadTreeView is still not fixed! I downloaded it again a short time ago, this is after uninstalling the previous 5.2 version, attempting to install the new 6.0 version that I downloaded yesterday - and gave me the loadtreeview dialog box which i could not get rid of except to terminate the task. Uninstalled crap version, Now the latest version installed again - still does not work, same problem??? Running XPSP3, the old 5.2 version was ok and I deleted it!

Downloaded smoothly, registration fields filled automatically, no website to visit and I successfully installed it on Win 7 Pro 64 bit with no issues. Good job!
Haven't had the chance to put it through its paces yet, but wanted to let folks know that it does indeed install and run on Win 7 64bit.

It does not function, although it installed and activated.
It cannot find anything at all. ZERO.

Tested another software Icon-Extractor against it.
Icon-Extractor found an icon instantly in the target folder.

Will try the NEW file to be downloaded mentioned in #43.
If it fails again, then can forget it and uninstall.

#35, therube: going by price this is the standard license according to http://www.fotissoftware.com/grabber_buy.htm

Uncertain wheither to install this over existing AMG for earlier offer as there seem to be many reports of bugs or operating odities to probably make me regret breaking a perfectly good older 5.1 install.

From the help document:

View Saved Files:
Program saves extracted files in a sub-directory with format name (\ICO or \BMP e.t.c[?]) in program directory.

The extracted Filename constitutes from a number and the filename from the file that contains it.

To view files that you have already extracted click 'Saved Files' button [there is no "saved Files' button!] and select a category from left panel.

Double click on a file to view it with internal image viewer.

You can delete all extracted files, a single file or a category by right click menu to the right panel.

... so, look here:

C:\Program Files\AllMedia Grabber\

... and under that, I now have these directories:

ANI
ASF
AVI
BIK
BMP
CUR
EMF
FLC
GIF
ICO
icons
IFF
images
JPG
Language
MID
MP3
OGG
PCX
PNG
PPM
SWF
TGA
TIF
Uninstall
WAV
WMF
XM

For 200,000+ new media file bits extraction, totaling 1 GB of new "stuff".

Splendid.

Now to browse ...

Nice that the AllMediaGrabber program reads it's own saved files (above) on it's next opening so you don't have to load up another browser to re-view your new stash of extracted bits.

Question, what does the [ OK ] button do?

@26 - Tom, sorry I didn't mention it, but I do indeed use the Run As Administrator. Not quite that "green" anymore. :-) It didn't solve the problem, the software was and still is dead as a doornail. But thanks for playing "WTF is wrong with this program?"

@32 Mumu OMG...... BIG BIG HUGS! Even Firefox tech support didn't mention that app. when I contacted them. They blew me off with a "this is the way we do it, tough noogies." Thank you so very much!

I'm looking for 219,127 new media files ... does anybody know WHERE it saves the files it creates?

Nothing in the setting tells WHERE it saves the stuff it pulls out!

That's kind of important, otherwise, I can't tell if it works or not.

No problems whatsoever installing on my Windows 7 machine. Opens to registration page with details filled in. Pressed 'Register' and received a 'thank you' message for 'buying' the product.

Checked settings and unclicked the option to check for upgrades. I'm amazed that the program doesn't include OGG files, as many games use this format for their music.

Chose a game I love (Legends of Atlantis - Exodus) and let the program do it's thing. It found:

ICO - 33
CUR - 17
BMP - 4
PNG - 995

NO MUSIC FILES WHATSOEVER!
Missed 2 WAV files.

After scanning, you have the option to save the results to an HTML file.

Program is ideal for me, EXCEPT for the 2 WAV files it failed to find.

If I had more time, I'd test further, but for now this is it! A keeper for me, at least for graphics. :)

Absolutely no problem downloading or installing this program (XP SP3, 2GB RAM). As mentioned previously, the registration data was already filled in on the registration popup that appeared when I launched the program for the first time, and was accepted quickly upon submission.

I have to agree that this program isn't very "newbie-friendly," requiring the user to designate both the file or folder to be scanned AND the type of file to scan for. It would be nice if there was an option to select multiple file types to scan for, instead of having to run a separate scan for each file type.

Of course, while I'm dreaming, it would also be nice if there was a mechanism whereby one could replace certain files embedded within other program components - ostensibly to change the graphics and sounds played during the course of the operation of the application they're embedded in. That could prove to be quite entertaining in certain applications...

Altogether it's not a bad little program, but it's not something I'd use very often. I'll keep it anyway, since it doesn't take up a lot of disk space or other resources, and apparently it doesn't install a lot of residual processes that will remain loaded when the program itself isn't being run.

Thanks again to all concerned in providing yet another freebie to the public!

My system is Vista. After installation and program crashed immediately, I found that you need to add AllGrab.exe as an Exception to "Data Execution Prevention" before it will work. There are several methods to get there. One is to get into Welcome Center, (show more details [click]) and click System Protection in the Tasks section. Click on the Advanced tab and then Performance Settings... button. Click on the Data Execution Prevention tab (my system is "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:") Click the Add... button and browse your program files location for AllGrab.exe and once selected.... (the program ran for me). The last dialog you get to will have "Performance Options" in the caption... Good-Luck...

When I try to install the program, following the instructions exactly, it fails. I get a pop up message "Launcher Error - unable to open the Archive File" a few seconds after I start the setup.exe. Then I get a popup that the GiveAwayofTheDay was successfully activated. But the setup does not continue.

When the program loads on W7 64bit an error #71 "disk not ready" appears before the program loads. Other than that the program does what it is supposed to do.

Your 5.2 version was bug free and worked seamlessly on W7.

Wayyy to many problems with this software. How can a program with this many install and use problems get so many thumbs up. Pay more attention and try to actually use the product before you vote guys!

This is a big no-go for me. I have enough trouble with Winblows without adding trouble from the programs I install.

Used this program once before on a GAOTD, but it is limited to extracting only from files 300KB or less so being fully functional may not be that much of a blessing. Noticed that the software cost has really gone skyhigh since appearing here years ago.

It's too bad we weren't warned that this would change a previous advanced version back to a standard version. My Version 5.2 advanced was changed to 6.0 standard.

I will never get anything from Fotis again.

Downloaded early this morning East Coast Time.
Loaded fine on XP Asus Aspire.
Picked all, bad choice maybe.
It's been running a several hours and has found 110k files or so.
Hasn't stopped yet so I haven't been able to view or use the results.

Just stopped, found a bunch but not what I was looking for.
Use Explore Folder under Edit for a better look.

Thanks therube for the Mozilla links, I'll try them latter tonight.

Sorry, I tend to agree with #11, Adif -- I can't think why I would need to waste my (now) precious HD space to install this programme, just to see a large number of system files with .jpg after them.

I suppose it is going to be fun for some people, but a bit of a nine-days-wonder, if you ask me.

Okay, so nobody asked me.....

This is actually a pretty neat program. It installed and registered fine on my el-cheapo Windows 7 x64 laptop, 2mb memory, celeron processor. When I first opened the program it came up with the registration page and the important registration data already filled in.

Pretty easy to use. Some who have said it doesn't do anything when you try to run a scan - you have to pick the files or folders to scan first. It is fast and found lots of pictures/icons when I just scanned a few folders and files. It also adds a function to the shell of your Windows explorer, so if you are using explorer to view files on your computer and right click on a file, you have a new function called "AllMedia Grabber (Extract)" that will open AMG and scan the file for media and list what it found. The program lists all the media files it found hidden in the file it scanned. The main use of this program is to pull out graphics or sound/video files that may be hidden in a dll or an exe file. It does not look for mp3/mp4, jpg, etc files that are standalone already.

There is a drop down "Edit" tab on the top left of the program main dialog page that allows you to do something with any selected file it found - like move to a folder, copy to clipboard, set as wall paper, etc. Useful functions.

The program is fast and pretty intuitive. I am definitely adding it to my useful computer tools, putting it on my W7 desktop and another laptop I have that is running vista.

Finely tuned Win XP. Installs but when run gave error 71 'Disk Not Ready' which I have never seen on this computer (computer tech). Clicked OK five times and then it comes up with error that All Media Grabber is NOT available on GAOTD. I fixed that last error by disabling firewall as it needed access to verify reg. After that it runs with firewall up fully. But still gives Disk not ready. All my disks are fine. A seriously beta type issue IMO. Standard disks on a 5 year old computer.

XP SP3
v.6.0 (does not state if this is the "standard"
or "advanced version"?)

[based upon the formats allowed to be selected,
this is the "standard" version]

installs into directory of your choice, 8 MB
plus adds a couple OCX files into %SYS%
plus an uninstall.exe into /Windows/All...

on opening the program, the (window got lost
when i alt-clicked, so i had to go around
hunting for it) registration name/code were
pre-filled in, making registration a no
brainier

any resources found are saved into sub-directories
within the instalDir. odd that there is no option
to specify /where/ you want things saved

resizeable window

it does not weed out duplicates

some file save as, as well as move/copy options

you can save an html listing of found resources,
which can act as an index to the files

it works, standard fare, does what it is supposed
to without fanfare. no crashes.

@ Geoffrey Alexander & GreeneyedNewbieNovice,
take a look at this site for handling firefox-cache:

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/mozilla_cache_viewer.html

MozillaCacheView is a small utility that reads the cache folder of Firefox/Mozilla/Netscape Web browsers, and displays the list of all files currently stored in the cache. For each cache file, the following information is displayed: URL, Content type, File size, Last modified time, Last fetched time, Expiration time, Fetch count, Server name, and more. You can easily select one or more items from the cache list, and then extract the files to another folder, or copy the URLs list to the clipboard.
Have a nice day!

This is just the kind of program I've been looking for for quite a while now. It installed without problem on my Windows 7 Home Premium system, so I suggest those above who encountered problems look more closely at their systems, & in particular, any background programs running and especially firewalls, virus checkers, etc. Some folks are always quick to jump to the conclusion that there is a problem with the software when it won't install properly on their systems on the first try.

If you have ever looked at a program and thought how much you would love to have an icon or picture or even a video contained within for your own use elsewhere, this is an ideal application for extracting that bit. (Of course, you need to be respectful of copyright in your use of such materials.) For example, if you see a small picture inside a program which you think would make an outstanding icon on your desktop, you can now extract it & make it into an icon.

Nice addition to my graphics toolbox!
