How do I stop the program from connecting to the internet?
1-4a Rename tries to connect to the internet every time you start it.

It tries to download this file :

This file is a short text, that is displayed, if your version is older than the actual version.

To stop this downloading just start as

"rename.exe /noc"

instead of "rename.exe"

(Click here if you don't know how to do it.)

In the next version I will make something better. Some users had complaints, that their browsers or dial-up connections start up or their firewall alarm bells ring.

A workaround is to allow or to disallow internet access for 1-4a Rename or to disable "Dial whenever a network connection is not present" or Dial-On-Demand or a similar option within the browser or Windows.

However, you will never add or lose any functionality.

When I implemented this behaviour, I didn't realize that some of the users would notice that at all or wouldn't know how to start a program from the command line. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
