Introduction

Did you ever save some information on your hard disk and forget where? Well I did! Therefore I wrote a program that stores information in a structured way. The information is stored in a tree structure. So it can be easily retreived.

SIM is the name of that program, it is a Simple Information Manager. It runs under W95/98/00/NT/Vista/7. The Demo version can be downloaded free and is fully fuctional during 30 days.
Registration costs only US$ 10,-. You will get an unlimited fully functional program. You will be alerted of important updates by e-mail. Registered users may download them freely.

View the PADGen picture.xml file and the PADGen picture.htm file.

Description

At startup of SIM you will see the Main Window, divided in two parts. At the left, in the Items Window, is the tree structure, at the right, in the Contents Window, is the information corresponding to the selected item in Items Window.
Main window

In order to keep the interface as simple a possible I used buttons to interface with the program in stead of using menu's. You will find these buttons at the top of the program window of SIM. From left to right they are:
Buttons
Open
The default filename of the SIM data file, with all SIM data is called "sim.dat". SIM automatically reads this file at first startup.
In order to open another file, use this "Open" button. Note that SIM will remember the last file read. So to see "sim.dat" at startup again you will have to open it before closing SIM.
Create a number of shortcuts to SIM on your Desktop to easily access a number of different data files. Click the Update Button to create a shortcut on the desktop to the current data file.

Save
Click the "Save" button to save your data. Every time the data is saved two old versions of your data are saved too.

Backup
Click the "Backup" button to Make Backups of your data files or Restore them.

Update
Click the "Backup" button to check (if an internet connection in active) for the availability of a newer version of SIM.

Make Shortcut
With this speedbutton you may put a Shortcut on the Desktop. Clicking this Shortcut starts SIM with the current Data file. In this way you may put a number of Shortcuts on the desktop to easily access your favorite SIM files.
