Switch Hosts.exe 1.0: Download
History / Short Introducion:
I developed this small tool because I have to switch between different Hosts - Files on my Windows machine.
I had one Hosts-File with thousands of Add-Block-IPs in it, one with a Work-Config and so on..
So how this thingy wirks:
It mostly just
manages multipe copys of your current Windows Hosts-File which is usually
located at:: C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\ETC\Hosts
This Program allows easy switching between different Configs by a Shortcut.
- > You can create Direct Shortcuts with on Click on the Button (See Screenshot).
- > ..or you can do it manually by using the command-line [Name]:
SwitchHosts.Exe Addblock" for activating: Hosts.Addblock
Important: Parameter without "Hosts." for the File: "Hosts.Addblock" add just -> "Addblock")
At the first Start a Hosts.Default Backup will be created - but this program will not store any data in ini or registry,
Is prefer commandline - parameter / Shortcuts ;)
