HyperCoder Pro discontinued

May 14, 2007

I have discontinued and removed HyperCoder Pro from my website for the time being. Although it was running in Windows Vista there were a number of outstanding issues that I just cannot fix at this time.The main problem is the lack of VB.NET2003 support on Vista. I have tried to migrate the code to VB2005… [Read More]

Ok then maybe one more

April 15, 2007

After solving the problem with dual-core processors and the average colour bug I took a bit of a look at the whole 'first run' problem.I felt that AW2 although very powerful, isn't all that approachable to newcomers with a lower knowledge of installing and running new applications, and especially those that have a phobia of… [Read More]

AutoWallpaper and Dual-Core

April 6, 2007

I recently received an email from an AutoWallpaper user that has a dual-core processor. It would appear that there is a problem with AutoWallpaper when used in a multi-core environment.I am investigating the bug but as I don't have a dual-core system myself it will be difficult to track down. If anyone else out there… [Read More]

AutoWallpaper Mac Edition

March 23, 2007

I've recently been playing around with the AutoWallpaper code on Mac OS X and after about 1 and a half weeks of minor tweeks and code reworks I have a working version running. There will be a few differences between the PC and the MAC versions. For a start I have no way to code… [Read More]

HCPro Vista Business and AutoWallpaper update

March 18, 2007

The installer has been fixed for all versions of Vista (at the least the ones I can check with). Home editions seem to be a little more accepting of administrator rights. Vista Business and above require confirmation of administrator rights each time HC Pro is launched.A new update will be available for AutoWallpaper 2 soon.… [Read More]

HyperCoder Pro Vista update

March 12, 2007

I've released an updated installer for Vista which has an added Administrator Rights manifest embedded into the application.This works well on the Home editions of Vista but there is still an installer issue involved with Business editions (probably only when logged onto a domain). To work around this issue until I can sort it out… [Read More]

HyperCoder Pro and Windows Vista

March 8, 2007

I have now solved the Vista compatibility problems, although it wasn't what I originally thought. It turns out that all that's need is Administrator rights. So, to get HCPro running in Windows Vista all you need to do is right click the icon (or program) and select 'Run as administrator'. You can also set the… [Read More]

HyperCoder Pro Vista compatibility

March 3, 2007

As my first nasty cold of the year starts to release its tight grip around my neck I managed to pull myself into Windows XP to begin the potentially difficult job of sorting out the Windows Vista compatibility of HyperCoder Pro.For all those that don't know HCPro was created using Visual Studio 2003, and for… [Read More]

A bevy of updates

February 19, 2007

The last few days have seen quite a few updates to AutoWallpaper. These have been implemented with the help of a user that has a rather unusual screen layout. One portrait orientated monitor and one landscape monitor. But the updates have also seen a few other new features like 'proportionally fill and crop', aspect control,… [Read More]
