    xpize 5 Release 4

    The clock is only updated in English language versions of Windows.
  2. You can't have two titles. The Software Devs group permissions and settings will take precedence over the Normal Sponsors group ones. The admins are the only ones who will actually know that you belong to both groups (through the admin panel, of course) - no one else. Eh fine. I won't ask for my £6 back though
  3. Technically, yes, but only the permissions from one of the two groups will apply to your account. I don't know if being a member of the Software Developers group gave you any additional abilities or not, but if you would like to switch back, just let one of us mods know. Can you make me a member of both then, but revert me back to the SoftwareDevs group. Is it possible to have both custom title images below my avatar?
  4. BTW, I've made a 1-year subscription payment to MSFN and I'm no-longer a member of the Software Developers group. Is it possible to be a member of both groups simultaneously?
  5. I'll make contracted versions now. Thought a 300px limit seems arbitrary and userbars have always been 350px wide, nonetheless it's not in my interests to annoy the MSFN mods
  6. Thanks for the feedback; I've taken a look through the Vize sources XPero handed over to me before leaving, and it seems that this is a generic error message without any specific information, which is unfortunate. I don't think I can help you, but if you sit tight for a few days Vize 2.0 will be out, promise

    xpize 5 Release 4

    Hard to say; it doesn't really matter. I'd say to do it after nLite since then you're working with the latest set of files.
  8. I've just added two more.

    xpize 5 Release 4

    Yes, that's part of the same icon issue I documented earlier. It's fixed in Release 5. It's the same reason the Admin tools aren't patched.

    xpize 5 Release 4

    Of the recent suggestions made: Windows Desktop Search Card games images (cards.dll) Windows Cardspace Internet Explorer 8 Add-to-favs button Bluetooth Icons I've done this: a ) I've xpized the WDS logos and taskbar to better resemble WDS2.6 (the last with an XP-compatible style). I won't update the WDS "Magnifying glass" logo as it's always been like that since 2.6 and fits XP fine. I've also updated the activity AVI to be XP style. I've also updated the control panel icon b ) I've used Vista's card bitmaps, but this adds another 300KB to the size of xpize (even after compression) c ) I'm still wondering if it's worth it to do anything about Cardspace. It isn't a UI you'll encounter regularly and the icon is hard to recreate in an XP style. d ) The specified bluetooth icons (bthci.dll\201 and xpsp2res.dll\200.cio) have both been updated e ) I'm investigating the IE add favs button image issue; I don't know why it isn't working also a little request: in future use screenshot thumbnails and keep them small.
  11. Nice question from Anolis developer The software saves the log in different locations depending on how far along the installation process was completed.
  12. This issue has been reported before (via email). It's when there's a problem with creating system restore points; to install the software fine, just uncheck "Create System Restore Point" just before you click Install. Does your system have any non-standard system restore settings? Can you create system restore points using the System Restore wizard? BTW, how did you know to look in Anolis.Installer.Error.log? Where was it saved to?
  13. I've made a couple of userbars and uploaded them to the site along with BBCode you can use. Discuss.

    xpize 5 Release 4

    I've tracked down a copy of WDS2.0 which was the last version to use XP-style resources. Windows Desktop Search 4.0 will be in xpize 5 Release 5

    xpize 5 Release 4

    I've had a look and I think those icons are in setupapi.dll, which is already patched by installing xpize to a CD image. Some stuff is in syssetup.dll which isn't currently patched. I'll add it to the list.

    xpize 5 Release 4

    It looks doable. I'll need to know where those resources are located though. Submit a Norwegian translation and I'll include it in Release 5.

    I386 Testing

    If you're using German Windows XP you won't see it, only English Windows XP gets the new time/date control panel. Same goes for System Performance settings.

    Hey this is what I did mention before. - And there are some more strings not listed: Installation aborted Installation was aborted due to an unhandled exeption Uninstall Select the directory to recover from Select the backup directory to recover from creating system restore point Download failed The best would be, if you could release an updated en.resx file. All of those strings are in the en.resx I uploaded, except "Uninstall".

    Lang_RTL should be set to "1" if your language is right-to-left. Russian is left-to-right so just ignore it (i.e. leave it blank or set to "0") "Uninstall" isn't localised. I must have overlooked that one. Add it as "E_A_uninstallButton".

    xpize 5 Release 4

    I've uncovered a pretty major bug that I'm surprised I overlooked: A lot of the *.ico files used in xpize 5R4 are actually malformed. Icon files are comprised of two parts: the first is a "directory" that contains a listing of all the subimages in the file, the second part is a concatenation of all the subimage data. The directory contains information that is also contained within the subimage data, such as width, height, and bit-depth. However some icon editors don't save the directory info with the right bit-depth. My icon patcher just reads this data and trusts it to be correct, but in this case it isn't, which is why Windows loads the 256-color version as a fallback. I'm working on modifications so it reads the bit-depth from the subimage data rather than just trusting the directory. This is why so many people are complaining of icons not being updated, although the fact the icon cache wasn't cleared also helps. This issue should be solved by Release 5.

    Logon Screen

    Do you mean to say that instead of getting the Welcome Screen (click username, type password) you're getting the GINA Logon (type username, type password) instead? It's possible the logon theme you downloaded from dA is corrupted or incompatible with your OS. Or you may have not installed it correctly.
  22. What a lovely monday you must be having It's simply a program you run that removes most of the visual leftovers from Windows 2000 in Windows XP in addition to installing some new wallpapers and visual styles. Installation requires about 7 mouse clicks on "Next" repeatedly, no further tweaking is required. So what problems are you having with it?
  23. I'm afraid the disk space piechart would be very hard to modify, it paints itself directly (probably with GDI). It is technically possible (by disassembling the program and changing its GDI calls so it calls the drawing functrions with antialiasing enabled, and maybe with a different choice of colours), but it would be a lot of work. I'll speak to a friend of mine who does a lot of disassembly.
  24. The XPize Guide is only applicable to XPize 4.x; xpize 5 Release 4 doesn't include the Settings program nor the reloader. I'll bring back the Settings program for Release 5, but there's no need for the reloader as the installer can do that.

    I've made the watermark image longer in Release 5. I'll make the text go down to two lines. These strings are located within the package.xml file and cannot be localised. Again, I'll make the text areas bigger.
