Xwdock 2.0.0.0 - Help & Support


BOBAH13

Recommended Posts

Good day. I saw this little problem. I was just trying to review my old files when I accidentally ran the game Red Alert 2. After exiting the game the dock seems to display incorrectly. I can hover over the mouse and the description displays too but all icons can't be clicked. I have to exit the dock and run it so that I can use the dock again. Please see attached desktop screenshot of mine. B)

Hello , Great Author ..

I'm a user of XWD 5.6 ...... ;)

It got a few bugs (e.g. XWDKernel.dll 's Global Message Hook AND Rundll32.exe not compatible in Win7) :(

But I'm still using it —— because of its marvelous MINISIZE-WINDOW effect and Icon Maginifying :rolleyes:

I'm so happy to see the XWD 2.0 is betaing... It's really good and faster but a little simple ...

I wanna know whether those two functions aboving :P will be added into next XWD 2.0 or final version .

Thanks for your hard work!

Thanks. In the next build you won't see these functions, but see others great functions :) And about 5.6 version, it's not supported any longer.

Thought I would throw this out there, just a minor odd bug I guess.

Dropping the Sticky Notes application (this is on Windows 7) into XWD 2.0 creates a nonfunctional icon(generic application icon), and when clicking on the icon it gives an error:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Sticky Notes.Ink

Unspecified error

Ok, so I thought, i would drag&drop the sticky notes.exe application itself into the dock...

Dropping the StikyNot.exe program (located at C:\Windows\system32\) does an odd thing, instead of creating a link to the Sticky Notes application, it creates a link to the Desktop.

Now, this, I'm sure is related to how Microsoft integrated the Sticky Notes application into the Desktop environment.

After discovering this, I investigated a few other integrated applications...

Some of which I have found having the same problem as the Sticky Notes listed above are the following:

Sound Recorder

Snipping Tool

Connect to a Network Projector

Those are all I found so far. These are most likely not applications the users of XWD would be using in their dock, so importance of this I would assume is relatively low.

I just thought I would point it out, if it hasn't been brought to light yet.

I would like to also take this moment to say, lets not throw every idea for a request of what we would like to see in XWD 2.0 at Bobah, he has already asked for ideas, and he has also taken things into consideration. Sure, we all have an idea or two of what we would like to see in XWD, but, these are things to implement later on.

Right now, Bobah is focusing on getting the base application(the basics) working flawlessly with our PC, so lets report the bugs, do not forget, this is an early beta and we are the testers. :)

Thanks, and lets help with XWD any way we can :)

@aka120: I don't know about sticky notes, but you should be able to add sound recorder to it fine... Try dropping it straight from system32? The program itself is called "sndrec32.exe"

I think a way to modify an icon's path would be nice. (I'm supposing that Bobah removed it to keep things simple) and maybe make it convert shortcuts into applications, with working directory and arguments auto-detected.

Edit: just confirmed that sndrec32 does indeed work on my computer at least (running XP sp3)

Good to hear its functioning correctly on XP then :)

All the programs i mentioned, repeat the same "symptom", dragging and dropping the application directly from the system32 folder onto the dock, creates a desktop link.

The desktop link does nothing more than open the users desktop folder.

im still having the issue w/the dock after starting my laptop after its been in hibernation. once i turn it back on, and log back into windows, (running vista 32 bit) all the icons on the dock are invisible and i cant click on them. i had a similar problem with XWD 5.6, except with that, it was totally gone when i logged back on.

Creates links, and place links on the dock. It's not good for "security" run programes from C:\Windows\....

If it's the skin you're using, try changing back to the original skin. Bobah will probably have better advice, but if all else fails, you could try to take a look at the ini files in C:/Documents and Settings/USERNAME/Application Data/XWindows Dock/ and see if you notice any problems (or delete them, which would reset your dock).

already tried all that even deleted it and redownloaded it again without adding any skins or messing with anything just clicked on the installer and still all i get is a strip of the dock. don't understand what is wrong when it was working fine before, except for the running indicators the dock, the only one that would show was the computer indicator.

Error :o system Windows 7

No need to tell me "Error... What to do??? and so on". If you have problems, please tell me what were you doing that get that error ? If it happens when you start Application, then try to install/download "redistr C++ 2008" and restart app.

how do i extract the resources from a skin from 5.6 skin to version 2? or port it?

completely by hand, because the new system is completely different from the old one. For starters, take a look at the files in skins/current/ from your 5.6 installation, copy the relevant files to a new folder, rename them to what they should be, and start tinkering with the settings.
