  1. Personally, I'd add Mono to the project.


    You'll want to select Windows, then the option "Mono for Windows, Gtk#, and XSP"

    * When installing, I didn't install XSP, so I don't know whether it will break compatibility.

    * I also have not tested without KernelEx - I assume it will fail.

    After a long google, all I was able to find is this: http://lists.ximian.com/pipermail/mono-list/2005-November/029656.html

    Probably Windows Me is supported when using Microsoft Layer for Unicode but

    Windows 95 and Windows 98 support requires source code modification to avoid

    shell32.dll version 5.0 API dependency.

  2. I'm looking for a program that will run in the background, and Launch/Kill certain net-specific programs - Such as a twitter client, RSS reader, etc - when I connect/disconnect from a network.

    Does anyone know of a program that can fill these requirements?

    If not, a program that will just launch/ignore a specified program when activated would also be useful.

    I hope that made sense. :blushing:

  3. You could check the location of the Application Data folder and check it in relation with the windows folder.

    IE: If %appdata% is in "%windir%/Application Data" it's single User, if it's not (%windir%/Profiles/*/Application Data), it's multiuser.

    This is however a *very* bad way of doing it, and would probably fail with translated versions of windows. :whistle:

    I'd have to start digging in the registry to work out if there's a simple way to measuring it.

    Oh, and remember that even when multi-user is enabled, you can still hit cancel, and load up the single-user profile. :blink:

  4. Finished up a port of the XP theme RVWoodwork. Its passable, but the window buttons are still bleh.


    Preview image is attached to this post.


    Oh, incidentally, there's a weird little glitch in the skinning engine. If you select the "help" button and hold or click on the window frame, the original unskinned buttons appear. It can also happen if you right-click a window caption, though it immediately corrects itself.

    Just a question, Where's your system tray?

    Otherwise, it looks awsome, and I'm gonna install it now :)

  5. when you ping updates.microsoft.com or downloads.microsoft.com what do you get back as a respnse?

    >ping updates.microsoft.com
    Ping request could not find host updates.microsoft.com. Please check the name and try again.

    >ping downloads.microsoft.com
    Ping request could not find host downloads.microsoft.com. Please check the name and try again.

  6. I'm unable to connect to download.microsoft.com or use Windows Update on my Windows 7 Machine. It works fine in both my other computers, so it's not a DNS or other connection issue.

    Any Ideas?

  7. After a quick dig on google, I found that Apple has made software to share my windows drives to OS/X machines, but hadn't found anything that allowed me to use the OS/X protocol for sharing disks between my PC, and an EeePc (CDless lappy)

    Does an implementation of this protocol exist, or a similar (non Apple) implementation of the same idea exist?

    Thanks in advance :thumbup

  8. {E} completely develop a Windows application from dev to compile, bouncing around from editors to output windows while juggling a multitude of online/offline references

    I'll have to disagree with that one... When actually compiling the program, I'd switch to winXP, and compile as a unicode application (with unicows.dll).
