I have been using Genuitec's MyEclipse IDE (obviously based on Eclipse) for the last 7 years. Yes, it costs --- a whole $63 per year for the Pro edition, but I find it has some productivity features that makes it worth it.
We had a professional subscription for several years up until about 3 years ago, but it never gave us much improvement over plain Eclipse, in case of features that we made actual use of. The last 2 years the updates came really slow, and really incompatible with newly updated plugins we used, so we switched to standard Eclipse, and bundled it with the most common plugins for our company-usage, and everybody is happy again (maybe except Genuitec Wink)
And a few teams also use or switched to NetBeans.

Biggest worry here is what IE-specific web apps break this time, after upgrading... Yes, I know it's the task of the developer to try and anticipate on any browser changes, but with IE the changes often seem to be so huge, anticipation is next to impossible. We'll see how the story goes, this time, I'll wait a couple of weeks and ask around a bit tellme

it does if you install on a version of windows prior to vista;  after vista i got cold feet about having the program run after installation because i wasnt sure if there were cases where it would be running as the "wrong" user -- i.e. as administrator instead of normal user account. i should probably go research what the "accepted" policy about this is..
We've talked about this subject before, and the generally accepted practice is (my extract from the Inno Setup newsgroups) to offer the optional execution of the application after the installer has finished. Even when on Windows Vista and later. Users hardly ever start a setup using 'Run as Administrator' and those who do usually know what they are doing, so the chance of SSC being run as an administrator is fairly small. And not a big security risk, imho.

What apps do you control with KeepUpApp ?
Any Windows application (32 or 64 bit) or service that you need to stay running for as long as possible, and/or restart when stopped or crashed.
230  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Desactivated services and irregular things on: February 24, 2013, 01:46:23 PM
KeepUpApp isn't running as a service yet, but I've been adding that to the ToDo list lately Wink
231  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Desactivated services and irregular things on: February 24, 2013, 01:45:32 PM
Disabled services aren't supposed to run, so they won't start until you enable them from the ServiceManager. But most likely you won't need them?

Chris,
You may want to update your copyright statement to state 2013 for the year where your copyright starts.

Really nice functions you've built into this one, great Thmbsup
233  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Desactivated services and irregular things on: February 24, 2013, 01:38:04 PM
If you want to check upon a service in irregular intervals and decide to restart it if it's not running, then you can use NirSoft's ServiWin. Run it when you need to do a check, and restart the service that was stopped or paused.

If you need a service (or application) to stay up and running 99.99% of the time, then use KeepUpApp. It will (re)start the service or application, and optionally un-pause a service that gets paused, if you set the corresponding checkbox.
KeepUpApp is not for beginners or computer-illiterates, they usually won't need the functions provided by KeepUpApp.

The link is fixed, I'll update my blog in the near future, have had a lot on my mind lately...
235  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Desactivated services and irregular things on: February 24, 2013, 03:02:37 AM
How about my latest NANY entry KeepUpApp ?

Oh, to actively monitor anything, the tool needs to be loaded and running, ofc.

It's a bit funny to see that the eraser is a few pixels wider then the pencil in free-draw mode. Until you want to fill the erased line with a different color and it doesn't fill the erased line-width... huh

Sample:

238  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Embedding external files into PDF file on: February 18, 2013, 04:32:36 AM
The restrictions are (most likely) imposed by the OS (Windows or Linux) or the pdfreader application used, not by the PDF format.

Check out the options to avoid messages like these, but be aware of any security implications!

How do you feel about the current version of xplorer2 or do you find yourself using another file manager?
Still stuck at the 1.8.x level, as I don't feel like spending money for an update to get exactly the same functionality in the 2.x release. Angry
But I'll keep using it for as long as it's safe smiley
241  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Suggestion: Renaming file before coping to clipboard on: February 17, 2013, 12:08:31 PM
Check out the settings, there are at least a dozen of options for naming the file and even for not saving to disk.

243  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: "Saving options dialog" and "Auto copy to clipboard when SSC looses focus" on: February 17, 2013, 06:17:47 AM
(At the moment even CTRL+C does not work all the time and one has to go to Edit menu to make a copy... strange...)
This feature is context-sensitive, if you have the cursor focused on the image (clicking there once helps), Ctrl-C copies it to the clipboard just fine. In other locations, the current selection is copied to the clipboard.

is the download-link already updated?
Have you flushed your browser-cache? Most browsers don't re-download the same filename without adjusted cache-settings.

247  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: proofreading on pc on: February 14, 2013, 01:55:23 AM
but not by writing on the screen, but in a smaller device, like a touchpad-like input device
That is why originally recommended to use a tablet (computer) device. More specifically, a Windows 8 tablet.

but:
1) wacom is an expensive option :/
Cheap is not a realistic requirement, in the context you've drawn.
248  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: Drop Zone Feature Suggestion on: February 13, 2013, 01:34:48 AM
Welcome to DC Elancore,

It's more useful to add the intended application name in the title of the post, when posting in a generic forum.

And besides that, double-posting isn't needed, Skwire reads your request when he has time/is available, he may be living in another time-zone from where you are...

Hm, drawing is fine, but I'm a bit unsure about the Undo feature. ctrl-z doesn't seem to remove the free-hand drawing, though it does remove the shadow applied (as per your suggestion Wink)

So no IntelliJ users?

Looking for an excuse to try it smiley
Tried it a few months ago, but I was so totally baffled on how to use it, even after being 'nurtured' by NetBeans, I un-installed it 5 minutes after first try. embarassed
