That sounds crazy frustrating. 

So can you tell me a little bit more about the problem -- does it happen on every program?
Let's narrow it down to try to make it easier to reproduce.

So let's work only with windows Notepad program.

If you go into notepad, with a file open and your cursor in the editable main window, can you bring up the quick-paste popup (default hotkey ctrl+alt+q), and then if you select an item from the CHS quick paste popup menu, what happens next?

Sorry for the delayed reply -- somehow this one got by me.

CHS should work fine on windows 8 -- are you still having the problem or did you figure out what the cause was? Anyone else?

You're giving them too much credit for the effort they would be willing to put in.

The main job of a task bar is to show entries for running programs -- LBC won't do that.

have you checked out the videos on performing scrolling captures? Sometimes they can help show you the different options for automatically stitching together scrolling window captures:

Unicode support is still on my todo list. I've been busy on another project (Mewlo) lately so I am a bit behind on my updates.

As much as I hate to admit it, I'm afraid unicode support is till a bit of a ways off, and those who really need it might want to think about using a different tool, and I apologize for that.

84  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Trouble adding a Hard drive as a link on: April 01, 2014, 09:53:39 PM
seems to work here -- can you give me a screenshot of how you have the node set before you click save?

ps.
I acknowledge that the configuration provides no clue how to configure this -- ill try to fix that in next update.
85  DonationCoder.com Software / LaunchBar Commander / Re: Trouble adding a Hard drive as a link on: April 01, 2014, 09:45:32 PM
just change the node type to a "Command" with the command being the drive to open like "E:\"
that should do it.

Their 'installer' could just be a middleware (cr)app that calls the original installer from the parent site
yeah, you'd want to try to check where your installer was being launched from and by what process -- that should hopefully tell you what you need to know.

But even with the new anti-wrapper safeguards, what would prevent them from continuing to distribute the version they already have?


i think you're assigning to them a level of determination and resilliance that is unrealistic.  the more likely scenario is they have an automated process and if a particular installer doesnt "wrap well" for whatever reason, they probably throw it onto the pile of installers not to wrap, and move on.
87  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Payment Services - opinions and ratings? on: April 01, 2014, 02:20:23 PM
I've been reasonably happy with Amazon Payments.  One real benefit if you are on the receiving end is that people don't have the love/hate relationship with it the way they do with Paypal, and they trust Amazon to be safe, which can be a big deal.

I still prefer PayPal myself.  One thing Amazon Payments doesn't have is an option for letting the payer choose how much to pay -- they aren't nearly as friendly to different kinds of payments.

We used to accept Amazon payment "donations" on DC but one day they decided they didn't like that, closed our account, and just basically gave up on attempts to resurrect our account.  I was eventually able to create a new amazon payment account that we now use only for commercial license "purchases", which complies with amazon rules.

For the respective user that would be too late though as once your installer runs, all the crap has already been installed.

Edit: Well, I guess you assume that if you do this your SW wouldn't be wrapped like this in the first place.

the first hope would be that the site would not be able to use their wrapper if my installer made the result unusable.
the second hope would be that the really lazy sites that don't check their wrapper success, would get penalized after the fact because my installer would tell the user the reason the installer has failed and blame it on where they got the download.

i'm wondering if, rather than a legal solution, i couldn't add code to the installer to make it hard to bundle in this way -- make the installer detect if one of these adware wrappers have launched it, and instead of installing, throw up a big warning and refuse to install.

I hear you.. I hate to think where this trend is going.

We've discussed this before and it's still as infuriating as ever.

I recently came across this new blog article written by someone who used my Screenshot Captor tool as an example:

Someone on this forum bought me an ergonomic microsoft keyboard as a gift many many years ago -- and i still use one to this day.

Just did a search for images of the keyboard -- seems you are right they got rid of the pause/break key -- that's too bad.  At least they still left me the PrtScr key.

Which key did you go with for activating FARR?
100  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Keyboard on: March 31, 2014, 06:45:10 PM
You can customize what keys launch FARR from the hotkeys tab in options.  Desktop keyboards usually have a Pause/Break key, but on laptop keyboards that don't i sometimes use the ` (backtick or reverse apostrophe) key or alt+backspace.  You could also use a function key.
