Title: BeHeirarchic Nag Screen
Post by: Tugboat on January 18, 2020, 06:55:29 PM
Long time reader, periodic poster,

Years ago I downloaded and paid for BeHeirarchic, a neat little apple menu control panel that would help with file organization.  I have lost the registration information and the developer (Fabien Octave) appears to be long gone.  I would like to remove the nag screen that appears every time I start my Quicksilver saying that I must like BeHeirarchic therefore I should register.  I would re-register if I could but in the absence of that do any of you wise souls know how to disable the nag screen?

Thank you.

Mike

Hey Mike,

Well, I don’t know about wise?
But I’ll offer the broad (from the hip) scatter-gun approach.

Does a little BeHeirarchic icon, or anything even possibly / remotely related to “BH”… still march across the bottom of your screen at startup? I’d first begin looking for INITS, cdevs, etc… related to the now-errant software and disable (or trash) them from control panels, startup items / System folder, etcetera. Of course you might try selectively disabling anything that you suspect might be related, first… just to see how it goes before forever trashing?

AND if you’re running a dedicated OS 9-only machine, you might even be able to use Norton Utilities (shreiks heard loudly from all over the forum) and its’ “Find File” feature to seek out and eradicate all suspected remnants of BH. (Of course, you may wish to backup everything first (“out of an abundance of caution”).

I do wonder how deeply such a program might reach its’ tentacles into the very sinews of your machine. Hopefully not all that much.

Anyone else possibly have the old BH “secret code” written down somewhere… OR remember eradicating BeHeirarchic?

Or perhaps, Mike justs want to eliminate the Nag screen and not BeHeirarchic completely?

Try "BeHierarchic" (with double quotes).

It's so small, I'm attaching what I found. May save others some effort.

I find a thoughtful gift for you and you insist on it having MIDI?

i tested this around 1995 - and had to deinstall it because it was incompatible with an other extension which also does some stuff to menus.

I use this. It makes submenus in the Apple menu that contain icons, which looks better.
