I have also created a DLL named PqLib.dll, which basically is the query engine from ProfilerQuery, without any user interface. If you are a developer and you are interested in what this can do, give me a shout.

Installing and uninstalling:
Most of my programs do not come with an installer. You just open the zip file and drag (or copy/paste) the enclosed catalog to wherever you want it.
You can create a shortcut to the .exe file and send it to the desktop, or wherever you want it. Drag the .exe to GsyLaunch if you use that.
Since there is no installer, there also is no uninstaller. Just delete the catalog and any shortcuts you have made.
There is very little data saved outside the program catalog, but if you need to clean it completely, here is where data is stored:
- In the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Gunnar Syrén\[program name]
- In AppData: C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Gunnar Syrén\[program name]
- GsyLaunch saves backup in Documents/GsyLaunch, and GsyLogger saves log files in Documents/GsyLogger.
