  1. Your's is probably a very old request by now. Just kidding, released new version with .ico support, check first post.
  2. Maybe this helps: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms646309(VS.85).aspx Some notes: HWND -> Form1.Handle In your form add this to FormCreate procedure: // For example Win+Shift+A // 100 or whatever you want, if you register many hotkeys you must put a unique id to each one RegisterHotKey (Handle, 100, MOD_WIN Or MOD_SHIFT, VK_A); In your form add this to interface section: procedure FormHotKey (var msg : TWMHotKey); message WM_HOTKEY; In your form add this to implementation section: procedure FormHotKey (var msg : TWMHotKey); begin If msg.ID = 100 Then Show; end; Of cou
  3. Thanks EiBStudent for informing and sorry for inconveniences, I've reuploaded file to another hosting, hope it works for you this time. Cheers.
  4. Sorry, I tend to move stuff around from time to time. Uploaded again (to another server were it should just stay forever), and fixed links in first post of this thread. Cheers and sorry for any inconveniences.
  5. Sorry, I'm not sure if I should publish this here or at Developer's Hangout thread. Please move accordingly if needed. XWeather docklet source code (as of XWindows Dock 5.6, not sure if it's still working): http://matias.securityconsultant.com.ar/XW...-2009-11-06.zip Using Delphi 5 compiler, should compile under newer Delphi's with some minor changes. I'm releasing this to everyone wanting to make modifications to it, or a new docklet or whatsoever (just keep it for free, please ). I've been away from the community for a large time, so I thought I should at least publish the s
  6. Mmm... I guess Elevati0n point is right... did you mean Orlando, Florida, USA?
  7. As long as UK uses 110V power it should. Really I don't know. Here in my country we use 220V instead, so you need a transformer to make them work (also they turn to burn in fire when you plug those here).
  8. @ahmadus: Yes here I have the same thing. The preview of files is ok here, but font is like being blitted to a low-res texture. However this is the first CoverFlow I've seen for Windows' Explorer (indeed I thought it was just impossible to put this thing just there, let alone the integration with Explorer and using IShellFolder, etc..., I mean, vemod must have had a hard time writing this so we should be pacient and supportive with this guy )
  9. Also tell it not to load at Windows startup before removing the folder. (of course exit XWD before too, but I guess I don't need to say that)
  10. If you(1) are super-picky about font-smoothness, choose among these options: Use ObjectBar or Rosie or McBar instead, for finderbar emulation. or Use GDI++ instead, for font smoothing (this choice highly recommended) (I recall some modes of it do subpixel -i.e. "ClearType"). (1) by "you" I don't mean STARTxAxFIRE, I'm just quoting and kind of adding info.
  11. For the broken matrix part to be moving you have three options: Vista + Aero enabled and some kind of custom wallpaper app, I dunno about this but it seems Vista comes with animated wallpapers? correct me if I'm wrong. An animated .gif (it'll work even under Windows XP). I recall there is an app, maybe from AndreasV, published here at Aqua-Soft, allowing you to put a video as wallpaper or something like that.
  12. Check out this one: http://www.mobilesmania.com/forum/nabeelup...hoto-311575.png It may deny you access, then try visitting this link first: http://www.mobilesmania.com/forum/index.php?showuser=311575
  13. I found this rather strange code snippet: http://www.nirsoft.net/vb/shutdownwin.html It shows how to programatically show Windows shutdown dialog. I wonder if this works under Windows Vista / Windows 7 (it works under XP, just tested). Of course, this would make it possible to intercept it too, for apps like iShut to show up instead, when choosing Start > Shutdown...
  14. Mac OS X: Adium, by far the best, and a pitty not being it available for Windows / Linux. Windows: Digsby, it's less buggy than Pidgin (which crashes a lot in my machine, yes I used stable releases). On chatting services I prefer Google Talk but everyone uses MSN Live or whatever :'( so I have an account on that one too.
  15. Got it running (mostly) until I went into C:\ and it finally crashed. Ok, I managed to kill explorer.exe, let's try again. Let's see: slow, I mean cpu load, not animations which btw are fairly smooth (using a Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz and 1GB RAM) text looks like low-res... are you drawing text into a texture? I'm really intrigued at how are you getting those .pdf previews I'm sincerely impressed by this one feature (maybe IExtractImage?) couldn't preview .doc files... I guess it's because Microsoft Office isn't installed in my machine Other than that, it looks really promi
  16. Wow, the TaskFX thing looks great! For TaskFX and WinExpose to work together, I think you can do a pretty nasty hack: - Find the PID for any process called WinExpose.exe - Find a window whose class is TForm1, belonging to such PID. - Check if such window has X position = 0. If this is the case, then don't apply the effect. However it would be much better for both TaskFX & WinExpose (and other FX apps too) to use a common library for such stuff. Someone at Aqua-Soft will finally have to write it, maybe based on Compiz-Fusion architecture or whatever. To avoid the flicker, you should pri
  17. Barely. There's nothing to screenshot at all. Maybe I can show a screenshot of task manager showing the AppleHWClock.exe process running?
  18. I'm not sure if you should modify the makefile at all. However for sure GDI++ includes some injection procedures, which will need to be adjusted (to use 64 bit pointers and instructions, more than anything else). Also there is the problem of 32 bit apps running under x64 Windows. In theory the easiest way to solve this would be to compile both x32 and x64 versions, and make the x32 version inject only 32 bit processes, and the x64 version to inject only 64 bit ones. BTW, has anyone tried to run gdi++ "as is", under any 64 bit version of Windows?
  19. Mmm... try going the UI way instead: Go to "My computer" folder, right click the hard disk, click Properties, click Tools, click "Check now" under error checking (the section with Scandisk icon) check/enable all options and click Start. It will tell you it needs to reboot. Let it do so. After reboot your file system should be clean and working just fine. Do you have any other operative system installed? More exactly I mean Linux / *BSD / Mac OS X with ntfs-3g driver? maybe FreeDOS with NTFS with write access enabled?
  20. BTW I had same problem but with "easier" solution: just let chkdsk run without you beeing able to see what it does. Whenever the Windows login screen finally appears, it means chkdsk has done all the job. Another option is to edit boot ini file, and remove the /kernel kernel_name switch. This is with BootSkin or similar ones, I recall Flyakite let's you decide to use that or the boot.bmp technique, but I'm not sure.
  21. This one is from my hard drive, downloaded maybe April 2009. http://matias.securityconsultant.com.ar/mcbrhook.rar I scanned the .dll with latest AVG Free Edition, no virus can be so old and raise a trojan alarm. BTW "Win32:Trojan-gen {Other}" it really looks like a false alarm! this should be informed to McAfee & Avast. Please remember McBar will use invasive, trojan-like techniques to inject itself into other processes, in order to get their windows menus (there is no other way to do it, so).
  22. Wait... it hangs while at the mobo's logo, or after it? because it may be a hardware issue. Check your CPU's temperature and your power source voltage levels. Of course based on your description it would look like FAKyte messed up your system, but it's better to be 100% sure to know what the problem is before proceeding.
  23. @Levi: I greatly disagree with your suggestion. I think we shouldn't ban OptimalSupremeGay, he has right to express his opinion, and free of speech. Of course we can use our free of speech right and have fun on him.
  24. May I suggest you publish a screenshot on each detail you enhance on your customization, maybe with some detailed description of the steps you followed? As to now it looks as bad as any Windows Mac-emulation pack, but luckily enough you're working with an open source platform having plenty of possibilities because of that. I mean, I really encourage you carry on. Wuzzie's screenshot is pretty much what I see when I work in my mac (except for the dock which is not Leopard's default one).
  25. There's another alternative too: Manually edit your wallpaper and add a black rectangle, just behind from where FinderBar would reside. You'll loose transparency effect, but text will appear ok.
