July 17, 2007

Last weekend I sat down and thrashed out solutions for the multi-wallpaper support, and I have to say I'm very pleased with the results.

The added bonus is that if your monitors are mis-aligned (top positions vary) then AW3… [Read More]

I decided that with the inclusion of multi-monitor paper support and other key new features it was worthy of a version number increment.

Journey to Azshara and Multimonitor paper support

July 2, 2007

I had a little time over the weekend to look into other items on my AutoWallpaper to do list and see what I could do. First up was support for multi-monitor wallpapers.

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]
