1 Software / Finished Programs / Re: RRunner on: May 21, 2014, 06:23:06 PM
Somehow managed to remember my password after 6 and a half years. . .

I'll have a dig and see if I can find the original RRunner source, however it may be lost to time. If that's the case I'll try and build something similar this weekend.

Hey jpgrosen. What did you compile it with? I had a problem with mouser with FARRTunes when I compiled it under VS2008, still not sure why.

Perhaps because VS2008 defaults to using .NET 3.5 (3 != 3.5) (See Project -> Properties -> Target Framework)?

The lib is indeed using 2.0, and I presume Vitalyb's to be doing the same.

Sadly, user side support for .NET is patchy at best, mainly due to Microsoft not pushing it upon people. Most people will have 1/1.1, some will have 2.0 and only devs will likely have 3.x.

Looking at the refactored code it would appear that the library would need a total rewrite to bring it down to 1/1.1 standard, no fun at all: I would instead suggest that the .NET wrapper should use the Visual Studio deploy magic to install .NET 2 if it is not found.

.NET 2.0 framework:

(Be sure to check Windows Update for patches etc)

What is CPU and how does it relate to RAM??

The CPU is the "Central Processing Unit" of your computer, this is often made by Intel, or AMD, it's the brains of your PC, and everything you do relies upon it.

RAM is "Random Access Memory", and is used as a 'quick access' store for your applications, by storing variables in RAM, retrieving them is faster...

The two are in no real way realted...

I'm also going to have a stab at this >_>

Running services.msc and disabling the Zero Configuration service manually would also work...

It all depends if the belkin suppied exe does anything else which you might need...

If it does, go with the services.msc way, else, mouser's link would be best...

I've just been doing normal surfing to 3 forumn sites, and the program says i've download 1.2 mb of data. Is that normal?? for 20 mins of forum surfing???

Depending on your client (and forum) settings... Yes...

If you want to save some bandwidth, disable avatars, and sigintures, consider disabling images (Or only allows those from the originating site)...

As for the rouge client, unless your routing devices has some functionality to show bandiwdth consumtion, I think you're out of luck.. (Short of installing an app to do so on every PC)

Personally I think memory usage is a better goal to aim for. With careful pruning of services I used to get sub 70mb for XP usage after boot.

Hey, for 1.09, is there a way to make it so that you can enter the URL of the page to be checked for the update that way it isnt hard coded into the app. Perhaps this can be stored in a registry key, and loaded each time the program starts. That way, if symantec were to change their page, you wouldnt have to update the program.


Also, the exception is thrown when you click an empty spot in the log window. Also, ntvdm.exe isnt being killed in task manager. I still show it running.


One thing I did notice is that when you change the amount of time between updates, its not remembered when you restart the app and its also not updated on the timer. Is there a way to do this via a registry key? You could store whether or not silent updates are enabled, auto update is enabled, the update interval and the default log file to use all in registry. Would this be feasible? One final thing, when you press update to do a manual update, it doesnt reset the timer (at least in the titlebar of the app). Thanks again!

Changed. (Although the title bar wont update instantly)

1.09 ahoy!

21 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Symantec anti-virus auto-updater on: May 22, 2006, 10:20:29 PM
Ok, as of 1.04 that exception should be fixed, and the manual update button has been added.

EDIT: 1.05 is out, some minor fixes and the ability to abort an update, GUI changes...

EDIT: 1.06 is out, rewrote most of the code, focusing on the threading...

22 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Symantec anti-virus auto-updater on: May 22, 2006, 09:17:00 AM
[copy or print]
nUpdate /silent
Will launch silently

[copy or print]
nUpdate /silent "C:\log.txt"
Will launch silently, and log to C:\log.txt

23 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Symantec anti-virus auto-updater on: May 22, 2006, 07:34:44 AM
Ok, that took longer than expected, sorry.

   Normal: Just double click...
   With logging to file: nUpdate "C:\Log.txt"

Minimise to hide in the tray... That's about it...
It doesn't delete after running, but it does overwrite the same one each time, so not much space is lost...

EDIT: I do not own Norton *... Hence I couldn't test this as much as I would have liked to...

Errors/bugs/etc, either post here or email the address in the progam...

24 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Symantec anti-virus auto-updater on: May 22, 2006, 06:06:07 AM
I'm working on something now... Shouldn't take too long to finish up and GUI-ify...

*cough* Assuming it stops creating 80MB files *cough*
