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]

Vista and HyperCoder

February 15, 2007

It appears that the release version of Vista has a problem with HyperCoder Pro. I am investigating the problem but will involve quite a lot of work. HyperCoder Pro was original developed with Visual Studio 2003 and as anyone who has upgrade to Vista (and uses VS) will know Microsoft isn't supporting VS2003, only VB6… [Read More]

Let there be NAS, and, taking a bite of the Apple

February 9, 2007

Finally managed to solve the NAS issue in Vista. After scrabbling around in the loft I located the box to my network storage enclosure and raced off to find the website. One quick firmware flash later and I was fully vista compatible. Hurray.I also had a little time to run 3d mark 2006 on XP… [Read More]

What a lovely vista

February 5, 2007

Firstly, in case you missed it. The release of AutoBackup 2.5 occured last week. This was a particularly special update as it finally sorted out the problem with Microsoft Office Word documents (and some other formats). As some of you may know, AutoBackup 2 (and other realtime backup apps) couldn't detect the final save of… [Read More]

AutoBackup 2 updates coming

January 26, 2007

I have, hopefully, worked out a solution to the office document problem for AutoBackup 2. I will be releasing one smaller update this coming weekend, after which I will dedicate my time to adding the 'stubborn file format' features. With a 2.5 release in about a weeks time. The idea is to add a new… [Read More]

AutoWallpaper 2 has been drawing my attention again. As I continue to increase my own wallpaper collection I found AW2 was getting increasingly slow when it first starts up. This was due to AW2 trying to verify the existance of the files in each category. Although this sounds like a good idea it does take… [Read More]

All good things

January 15, 2007

After a rather successful reinstallation of Windows XP x64 Edition my graphics card decided to burnt out on me. So for the time being I'm running on a Geforce 6800GTS (rather than my 7800GTX) whilst I save up for a DirectX10 card, probably a Geforce 8800GTS, which is quite important for the future of gaming… [Read More]
