I really don't feel that, in my case, the "three year payment" holds water. I purchased this product 10 months ago. I only received two update notifications from the program stating that an update was available. Now, less than a year later, I am being told I have to pay again to move to the current version, and oh by the way the cost is just above half of what I paid originally. 

And yes, I saw the comparison about MS office. The difference there is, I have received 7 licenses to Office (2007-2013) that have cost me LESS than a single license of DOpus. Just because "retail" is expensive, doesn't mean there aren't promotions and/or other ways to obtain office in a legitimate fashion.

That said, I am not trying to be negative. In my case, however, I feel a tad upset about being asked to pay for a product I just paid for 10 months ago. I DID NOT receive the number of updates being mentioned here. I purchased the product in a state where those updates had already occurred.

In my opinion, if we are posting incorrect information, I more than welcome them to come forward and correct it. However, I am still standing by my conviction in that I purchased back in April of last year and now have to pay again, LESS THAN A YEAR LATER, for the next major revision. 45 dollars for an upgrade to a product I just paid 80 dollars for just shy of a year ago rubs me the wrong way.

That said, I am now looking at total commander.
55  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Directory Opus 11 Released! on: March 04, 2014, 10:48:23 AM
WOW!!! A whole three month period for "free upgrades". Gee, I should just whip out my wallet and plop down another 45 dollars into a product I have already invested 80 bucks into just shy of a year ago. </sarcasm>
Well, the new major versions aren't released that often, and there are alot of updates (and beta's) inbetween.

Dec 2007 I bought DO 9 (it was AUD 64 at the time, pro/light didn't exist).
Apr 2011 I upgraded to DO 10 (pro/light was introduced in the later years, everyone that had already purchased got Pro).
Mar 2014 I upgraded to DO 11 Pro.

Yes, I understand that major releases do not occur often. That said, the typical period of upgrades between major revisions in the software industry is within the last year. A whopping three months for a free upgrade to V11 leaves me with a very sour taste in my mouth given that I was not privy to many of those "updates" since DO10 was put out.

Mouser, when you remote into the system, is the host system you are remoting in from setup with a lower screen resolution? If so, that will affect your icon placement when you remote in.
59  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows moving around after monitors wake up on: February 21, 2014, 06:19:13 AM
Mouser, I have had problems in the past where, if I remote in on a machine with a lower desktop resolution, the icons will end up jumbled on the actual desktop when I log back in at the console. That had me puzzled at first but I figured it out. The only way around it is to use a "Icon position saving" tool and have it restore the position after you RDP in.

Personally, this reminds of when Windows XP first hit the streets and everybody swore up and down that it was a terrible, no-good OS with a horrible "kindergarten GUI". Look at it now, we can't get rid of the friggin OS. I, for one, enjoy the metro start screen (although I boot to desktop). The start screen is actually fairly intuitive and allows me to hide unnecessary clutter caused by menu after menu of new program folders. Heck, I never used the all programs menu in vista/7 with the type to search feature.

mwb!!!!!! That is exactly what I had before with the exception of the fact of where I had the ++counter set at. I had it at the end of the function (made logical sense to me). Now it works beautifully!

Jibz, thanks for the suggestion as well. Unfortunately, we have to use structured code and not OOP (I love OOP and this is driving me nuts). Plus, each function I add I would have to calculate the Big-O for so I want to minimize my number of functions smiley

Thanks again everyone! This is working like a champ!
63  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Binary Search Tree help on: February 12, 2014, 10:35:50 PM
Hello all, let me preface this by saying that YES, this is for a homework assignment. That said, I have already completed 99% of the program and the only thing left is what I am about to ask for help on.

I have a function to display a binary search tree using in-order traversal. The function works fine (as does the rest of the program, but I am having some trouble in limiting the output to 10 numbers per line.

I.E,
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
etc.

The function looks like such

Formatted for C++ with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. void inOrderDisplay(bstNode *nodeToDisplay)
  2. {
  3. if (nodeToDisplay == NULL) return;
  4. inOrderDisplay(nodeToDisplay->left);
  5. cout << setw(6) << right << nodeToDisplay->integer;
  6. inOrderDisplay(nodeToDisplay->right);
  7. }

Now, what I am trying to achieve, as said above, is 10 numbers per line followed by a newline, then the next 10 numbers, etc.

I have tried various things like having a static int counter inside of the function, I have tried using a standard local variable, I have tried passing in the counter as a parameter (reference). Once inside, I have attempted to use (if counter == 0), if (counter % 10 == 0), or if (counter > 10).

I am really at a loss here and this is the only thing holding up my submission of this program. How do you go about doing something like this inside of a recursive function?

Thanks in advance smiley

That is long gone, but I can generate a shell batch file, or perhaps skwire might generate a shell autohotkey script for you smiley Autohotkey is the more modern way

I love scripting smiley I had a menu back in my XP days that had a listing of all of the rundll32 commands I frequently used and let me press 1-40 to launch them smiley

Rename the attached file to temp.bat instead of temp.bat.txt. Then all you have to do is double click it smiley

OK, I mis-read that then! Thanks for the clarification. I was going to lose it if there was actually an author bold enough to remove access to data unless you pay smiley

So, wait, I can invest time into a program but unless I pay yearly, I lose access to any data I've stored in the program? No thanks. I should be able to use, without restriction, the version I purchased, even after expiration. Otherwise, I am simply wasting my money.

Likewise, the computer licensing model seems highly restrictive...Thanks, but no thanks.
