Hello. I just want to response a problem. When I run the app, I have got an error "Failed set data for ''" or something similar, also after I got the icon of the app in tray, I click on Album Search, and get Access Violation address and so on, but when I run .exe of search album, it's okay. Hope it will help.

My OS is Windows 7 Proffesional.

UAC is enabled, well, I'm developer too, and think that application must work perfect as AsInvoker too, not admin and etc. and it should not think that UAC must be disabled. Just a propositions ;)

Ohh, I'm not sure that it's UAC, but if you try to write into C:\Windows, C:\Programs Files or somewhere else (except temp or user's data folders) or registry, then it can be UAC of course.

Edit:

small questions, do you use C# I think for it ? :)

Thank you for your advice. I think I really should be strengthened emphasis on the win7.

btw: I use Delphi, rather than C#. I personally think that C # will uses more resources of cpu and ram,and efficient without delphi high. and C# can not directly run in WINXP without .net framework.

I am so sorry that XDeskCover can not directly uses CAD's skin.

In Skin Editor left TreeView,list all controls of XDeskCover,Their ,etc "CDCover","Text1"

And Their display order is from top to bottom,

If you want place "Text1" or "ButtonPlay" over "CDBack" ,You must select the "Text1" in the skin editor left treeview, and click the "Move up" Button on the Left-bottom of skin editor,Until makes the "Text1" above "CDBack" in the Controls Tree list.
