Number of Selected Items – Outlook 2007 is a simple plugin that adds a label to the standard toolbar which displays the number of items you currently have selected, similar to Windows Explorer. The main download contains the Office 2007 Plugin runtime required to install the plugin. If you already have this installed, you can download the .MSI version here

This little gem was created out of our own desire to see the number of selected items in Outlook 2007. We’re “stat” freaks and sometimes like to easily see how many support requests we responded to in a day or the number of sales in a certain time period. We know we could do some search queries in the new (much appreciated) Vista/Office 2007 search, but we usually only think to check these numbers when we’re actually viewing the emails. We’re also used to the Windows Explorer selected objects information shown in the status bar. FYI: This will show number of selected items in any Outlook view; Contacts, Tasks, Emails, etc.

Here’s a quick preview of how it looks (the red rounded rectangle is not shown in the actual program):

It’s free, it’s simple to install, and it does the job nicely. We hope you enjoy it!

MuvAudio v2.8.5.0 is now available for download.

Version History:

  • Changes affecting all versions of Windows:
  • Fixed an issue where the main MuvAudio window would sometimes open under other windows.
  • Fixed an issue where the horizontal scrollbar would should up on the playlist when it was not necessary.
  • Removed MessageBox that was inadvertantly left and shown when you have the ‘overwrite existing file’ option set and it finds a file to overwrite, in v2.8.0.0.
  • Removed successful deletion messagebox when right-clicking on an item in the playlist and choosing the ‘Delete From Computer’ option. It already asks if you want to delete the file so the telling of the actual deletion was redundant.
  • Updated the reliability of the deleting of incomplete files on close.
  • Changes affecting Windows Vista only:
  • Updated the recording time display for each file to more acurately depict the actual file position.
  • Improved overall recording time on Vista by decreasing audio device setup time per track.
  • Fixed an issue regarding the random stopping of the recording process while the progress bar continued to count up to 99% and would then stop. This is the second fix for this type of issue and was due to an issue with Windows Media Player.
  • Fixed an issue where second(s) from the beginning of a file might be cut-off when using certain hardware. If you still experience this, please see
  • Fixed an issue with .XXXXXX files being created when the file was the last file in a session and was skipped due to missing rights.
  • Fixed an issue with the temporary output file (size of less than 1KB) not being deleted when the file was skipped due to missing rights.

MuvAudio v2.8.0.0 is now available for download.

Version History:

  • Changes affecting all versions of Windows:
  • Added the ability to click on the error details when recording finishes. When clicked, it now loads a webpage to the appropriate information for troubleshooting the error.
  • Added the ability to start watch folder mode from the command prompt. (See for details, or run MuvAudio2 -? for parameter information).
  • Added the “When Output File Exists” option to allow the user to choose to not convert the file, overwrite the existing file, or create a unique filename by adding ‘~#’ at the end if a file with the same output name as a file set to convert already exists.
  • Added support to modify the “Audio Playback Rate” to set the speed at which the audio file is played back at and saved into the output file (useful for audiobooks and lectures). Not all files support faster playback.
  • Updated the add file to playlist code to not allow the user to add the same file more than once in a playlist (it would create duplicates and didn’t make sense to allow it).
  • Updated the “File Skipped Due To Missing License” message to not confuse the user into thinking that the error applied to the MuvAudio2 Registered User License. Also, if you click on this error, it will load a webpage with information on the issue and hoe to resolve it.
  • Fixed System.BadImageFormatException (with extensive testing) due to the original encryption of the exception handler. This should fix the issue where the application would randomly crash on startup and if run again, after the first crash, it would usually open fine.
  • Fixed issue with Reset Soundcard Application Text on close of MuvAudio2 Console when errors have been detected, stating that it needed to be run to finish setup of MuvAudio2 (should only say that on install). It now displays the correct message.
  • Fixed issue with Console sometimes stating that it had completed successfully even though there were errors. It now displays “Recording completed with errors!” in all cases were errors have occurred.
  • Fixed an issue with the <, and > characters being set in the output filenames and on load of playlists as “<“, and “>” instead of the actual character, respectively.
  • Fixed an issue with the output filename information not using “Unknown” when no information for the file tag is found. It sets the values to “Unknown” like the directory output does.
  • Removed MessageBox stating that the soundcard has been set successfully when Reset Soundcard Application is run (it was there to inform the user that it ran, but we have determined it is more of a nuisance).
  • Changes affecting Windows Vista only:
  • Fixed issue with the error details error info box GUI spilling over the side of the groupbox (aesthetic fix).
  • Fixed an issue where users would receive a “Windows – Bad Image” message due to an issue with Windows Media Player. It no longer creates the .xxxxxx files in this case and continues the recording process like normal. (If you still get the following message: “You must restart the machine to continue content processing.”, please see
  • Updated message regarding closing the Console while the soundcard was being set on Vista.
