Hi Experts!

I am helping my gf to search the best Directory Printer:
And the worse my gf and I, in our new job, we can only search in certain web pages.

No Malware (Must)
Payware or Freeware (Optional)
Trial Version, Direct Download from the website (No Softopedia or Downloads.com) (Must)
Portable (Optional)  
No HTML listing as default (Must)
Output the list as text file, comma - or tab - delimited File or CSV file (Must)
Output the list in MS Access or Excel (Must)

She wants to create file, folder and sub folder listings of C:\ drive, Including file such as Archive, Read Only, Hidden, System, Compressed, Encrypted,
In a few words "C:\ *.*"  

I know I can use DOS commands but She wants a program with a GUI

Something similar to "Karen’s Directory Printer" or "Directory List & Print Pro"

Cons "Karen’s Directory Printer"
Output file is a text file only
The result is a mess.
Long path >= 260 characters, don't list properly

"Directory List & Print Pro"
Cons Slow, Slow as a turtle to process the list
Very Expensive for a slow Directory Printer ($20.00US)
Long path >= 260 characters, don't list properly

Is there any alternative out there? How do you list all your C:\ drive?

It seems nobody wants to know the structure in his/her <drive> or Am I wrong?

Any software alternative, advice or solution is more than welcome

Thanks
Rebel

You are right, my gf tried it and told me Directory Report is great tool, but in order to buy a valid license you have to follow  the "Purchase instructions" http://www.file-utilities.com/wdir_order.htm

This "Purchase instructions" is not an option for my gf

Thanks
