DD Service Application Framework Last Updated: 8 Nov 2023
DDService is an enhanced Windows NT service application framework for Delphi and C++ Builder based on the original VCL service framework. In addition to it also encapsulates new Windows NT service APIs introduced since Windows 2000. DDService is freeware with source and currently supports Delphi 5, 7 and 2006 to XE8, 10 Seattle, 10.1 Berlin, 10.2 Tokyo 10.3 Rio, 10.4 Sydney, 11 and 12, as well as C++ Builder 2006 to XE5.
Original author, the late Arno Garrels of Duodata in Berlin. Now being maintained by Magenta Systems Ltd.
Mustangpeak UltraExplorer Last Updated: 23 Jan 2020
Mutangpeak UltraExplorer is a Windows Explorer replacement written using Delphi that will change the way you think about file management. It was in active development from 2006 to 2010 by Mustangpeak, but then activity ceased and the web sites disappeared. A new beta is now available here. Sorry, unlikely to spend any time improving UltraExplorer, but this beta fixes major bugs.
Components for Internet Component Suite (ICS) Last Updated: 30 Nov 2023
Various free components written by Magenta Systems Ltd to extend the François Piette's Internet Component Suite (ICS), which is available from https://www.overbyte.be/, including:
All new development of these components is with the ICS versions.
ICS source code, OpenSSL Windows binaries and CA Root Stores may also be downloaded from the ICS page.
Code Signing Trust and Certificate Check component Last Updated: 26 Nov 2018
The Code Signing Trust and Certificate Check component functions are designed for Code Signing, aka Microsoft Authenticode, and specifically to check that programs are signed and not corrupted.
WMI and SMART Component Last Updated: 19 May 2020
The WMI component is now part of ICS V8.64 and later with a new demo and DNS server support.
Magenta Systems WMI and SMART Component contains WMI, SMART and SCSI PassThrough functions, of particular use for getting hard disk information and
configuring network adaptors, but also for many other general uses.
All new development of this components is with the ICS version.
File Transfer Components for ICS Last Updated: 26 Mar 2019
Now part of ICS V8.60 and later, as TIcsFileCopy, TIcsFtpMulti and TIcsHttpMulti
Magenta Systems File Transfer Components comprise three Delphi
components, TMagFtp, TMagHttp and TMagFileCopy, the first two of which are high level descendants of the ICS TFtpClient and
THttpCli components, all allowing transfer of multiple files and subdirectories with a single function call.
All new development of these components is with the ICS versions.
Delphi TMagRas Component Last Updated: 22 Nov 2018
TMagRas is a set of installable Delphi non-visual components supplied with several demo and example programs and a help file, for accessing Dial Up Networking or Remote Access Services functions. It allows Delphi developers to add full RAS functionality to their applications, including dialling and monitoring multiple connections, creating and editing phonebooks (without using Windows dialogs), and getting performance information for connections. TMagRas supports Windows Vista, 2008, 7, 8, 2012, 10 and 2016. MagRas 6.00 and later fully support Unicode with Delphi 2009 and later.
Windows XPE Enhanced Write Filter header conversion Last Updated: 9 Oct 2018
The Windows XP Embedded Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) is used to protect one or more disk volumes by intercepting write requests to the volume and redirecting it to an overlay volume, either RAM or another disk. Note the EWF header conversion is only useful on Windows XP Embedded with the Enhanced Write Filter DLL installed. It is not available on Windows XP Pro, or other operating systems.
Internet Protocol Helper Component Last Updated: 10 Aug 2023
Now part of ICS V9.0 and later, as OverbyteIcsIpHlpApi.pas with new components TIcsNeighbDevices and TIcsIpChanges, with a new sample application OverbyteIcsNetTools.dpr with full IPv6 support
Magenta Systems Internet Protocol Helper Component is a set of functions implementing the the Internet Protocol Helper (IP Helper) APIs. They enable the retrieval and modification of network configuration settings for the local computer. The component loads all functions dynamically so applications will still run on earlier Windows versions that did not support certain IP Helper functions. The component returns the various parameters returned by the APIs as Delphi records, for ease of integration into applications. Now includes IPv6 support.
Internet Packet Monitoring Components for ICS Last Updated: 10 Aug 2023
Now part of ICS V9.0 and later, as TIcsMonSocket and TIcsMonPcap with a new sample application OverbyteIcsNetMon.dpr with full IPv6 support
Magenta Systems Internet Packet Monitoring Components are a set of Delphi components designed to capture and monitor internet packets using either raw sockets or the WinPcap or Npcap device driver. Hardware permitting, ethernet packets may be captured and interpreted, and statistics maintained about the traffic. Uses of packet monitoring include totalling internet traffic by IP address and service, monitoring external or internal IP addresses and services accessed, network diagnostics, and many other applications. The component includes two demonstration applications, one that displays raw packets, the other that totals internet traffic. The components include various filters to reduce the number of packets that need to be processed, by allowing specific IP addresses to be ignored, LAN mask to ignore local traffic, and ignore non-IP traffic such as ARP.
Delphi Registry and Initialisation Variables Code Generator Last Updated: 9 Oct 2018
Delphvar is a Pascal code generator for the Delphi programming language, designed to assist in the saving and restoring of component properties to and from both the registry and INI files.
TDESCrypt component Last Updated: 9 Oct 2018
TDESCrypt component created by Herzog Samuel, that encrypts a given input string by using DES. The code has been translated from crypt.c (Unix GNU Library). The component allows user names and passwords to be encoded into a format suitable for use with UNIX systems, in particular for the Apache web server running on UNIX to restrict access to your web site to authorised users. This allows new users to be added to the .htpasswd file locally on the PC, without needing to run a script while online to encode the passwords.
