Bob i disagree follow links on those answers...

One recommends utilities one can download which can do it. The other is for an open source app written in unmanaged C++

By all means, give any points I would have received to gregoryyoung.
Not sure how my 'EE Filter' popped a c# question at me anyway.

Have a nice day.

AHA!
Somehow, this was also listed in Windows OS:

For a few minutes, I thought I had actually made a mistake this year.

You were right "cross-posted", but strangely.

Alright!
Only 49,328 more points and I'll be a Master in C#.
