Mmm... pretty strange. Can you go into regedit.exe and File/Export this one?:

My PCHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerShell Icons

I have IconTweaker installed in my notebook and it works pretty well with Finger.

What program did you use to change the icons in the first place?

Launch Start menu, then select Run..., enter regedit and press Ok.

"Registry Editor" application will appear.

In the tree view at the left, expand My PC, then HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, then Explorer.

Still in the tree view, right click Shell Icons which is inside of Explorer, and select Export.

A typical Save-as dialog appears, in Type/Kind select Win9x/NT4/REGEDIT4 file type.

Then save the file somewhere handy (for e.g. in My documents). It will have .reg extension.

Rename it to .txt, or WinZip it, and post it here as an attachment.

Holla matonga!

I'm still having problems viewing 'Flying Cow' (lol) view with this latest version in Vista. I know this beauty is targeted at XP but it opens in Vista too and, as Flying Cow works fine in Vista, I was wondering what could be the problem... anyway, any news on Vista support? (please, at least tell us if it's supposed to support Vista at any point, down the road...)

I did some tests for reporting to you; up to now I've just tried it at Cover Flow, as it's the most appealing mode!

First and third modes are fine, second mode either generates access violation (kernel32) or just freezes and fourth apparently always freezes...

As for Vista, I'll have to learn how to change things such as forcing non-Aero mode, as I'm still a total n00b at it (and I'm having mixed feelings about its own new idiosyncrasies.. :slant:)

Hope this helps somehow!

Edit: forgot to mention that quick view is working fine.

@Panta:

I dunno, but probably you just go to screen appearance, or themes, or something like that, and you see the Aero theme is currently selected. Then you select another theme and Aero stuff is then disabled (you notice this as you then see window borders are not transparent anymore, and probably Switcher and other Aero-dependant-apps stop working).

@Kittierocker:

Mmm... not only it is the same than I have here, but also you're using the same IconTweaker pack (LeopardXP Blue). It works fine here. I'll have to investigate this more...

I've also got the problem with the application icon that goes on some icons. I don't know whats wrong with them, but in your stack docklet for RocketDock, and even on XWD these folders that have this icon in FingerXP don't show. Alot of folders in My Documents have this icon as well, and they don't show in either docks either.

EDIT: Oh and I use Icontweaker with LeopardXP Blue as well.

EDIT2: And another thing, the only way I can use them in XWD is when i made shortcuts to them, and kept them in that folder.XWD notices the shortcuts and displays them but not the original folders.

And, here's a post I made a while ago in XWD bug report thread, just to show you what I mean http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/showpost.ph...64&postcount=46

Is there something "special" about these folders?

Hey all :) I also started coding Finder and I don't know if matonga agreed to make this application together. what did I make ? it's http://nemecsx.narod.ru/sources/XWindowsFinder.zip and I think I'll be able to make all interface and matonga will make cover flow.... so I'm still waiting for answer of matonga.

I think you two should work together allways (two minds are better than one), you should let him help you with xwindows.

e.g. I think Matonga could help you with the magnification problem.

great work Matonga, you never disappoint me.

Matonga,

SERIOUSLY WELL DONE!

Great app, thoroughly impressed with all your apps.

I'm running an Advent 4211 with 2GB Ram, and this little netbooks performing excellently with all the apps.

After considering whether or not to put OSX on this system, or try my luck with the apps out there, I'm gonna watch these develop and carry on tweaking.

Keep up the good work man, and Happy New Year!!

Hi Mati, it's a great job! Congratulations! :D

So, fix me if i'm wrong, in Apple's Finder, it reads the EXIFF tags to reorient the pictures in CoverFlow mode? and in Tiles mode? (look at this in the original one)

It's a great job (again), I know how difficult it's to make a clone for an application (most if the original application was developed for another OS) and I know how much you are working on it (to make things that not exist in Windows), it's the real hard-work for a developer (I know it too).

I'm waiting for the next release!! (with drag&drop and Title-Bar skinnable :P -I haven't a WinXP MacOS skin and I no plan to install it-). Thanks friend!
