The trouble with doing this with AHK is you have to persuade your user(s) to run the exe As Administrator, and that's automatic for an (Inno Setup and other brands) installer, because of the manifest included in the exe smiley

You could create a small Inno Setup installer with just a single [ini] entry to fix that. The default settings are to run as Administrator (after confirmation of the 'unknown publisher' as you probably don't have a code-signing certificate, and a UAC question), and just a few Next clicks further (after disabling almost all screens, 1 or 2) it should be fixed.
I can help you out with the script if you want.

Did you quit CD? To be absolutely sure, restart Windows.

Hm, I'd be able to start something relatively small like this sed tester, just to be able to join this NANY tellme
I'd start with a live preview feature, but don't hold your breath, it'll take me a couple of days to publish it here, only small time-slots available huh

I've been using VMWare Workstation, the 'big brother' of Player, professionally for several years. Every update has been painless and an incremental improvement over the previous version.

Hm, I usually go to www.regex101.com to devise a proper regex find/replace, then head over to one of our HP-UX machines and use trial&error to fix-up the not supported regex signs like \d -> [:digit:] and similar sillyness. After that I've found a sed sequence that works on all our *nix platforms... huh

The default Android e-mail app (with the yellow-ish or white icon, not gmail).

From Android 5.0 on: Use the Gmail app.

hMailServer is used in our 400+ employee business 24/7 for some rather critical secondary mail-services, though not as the main mail server (that's Exchange, as is to be expected). It hasn't let us down in the 10+ years it's in use, all 'failures' can be accounted to configuration/human error, not software failure  Thmbsup

@Daleus: Might a couple of free e-books get you into the right direction? http://powershell.org/wp/ebooks/
I guess a package manager just one of the minor subjects.

Microsoft is turning more and more to PS for server management, so having (some) knowledge about it can come in handy for some of us.

Finally making some good progress on Android coding..
IF you are working on an Android version of PBOL, then please let me know, so I can stop pondering on whether I should start the project, because it is really short for my NANY to get it finished, and I really didn't start it yet embarassed (too much other stuff at hand Sad)

I  agree with your objections and second your questions.
This feels like a lawsuit-avoidance tactic. "Starting with version ...
The above combination makes me really wonder why in earth's name a big multinational, like Oracle pretends to be, has to include crapware for some infamous minority like "Ask" Sad

not sure about recent versions but use to the offline installers didn't have the offers.
I'm quite sure recent versions have them, but you may have disabled the settings from the Control panel gadget that gets installed with the JRE. I only get the off-line installers, though I currently tend to no longer install a separate JRE (space-saver when having 3 installed JDK's).

which brings to mind the question... should it even be necessary?
I  agree with your objections and second your questions. Especially when knowing that these 'sponsors' are only added to the JRE installers, and not to the JDK installers (not even the JRE installer included with those) AFAICS. But all a developer needs is a JDK (without the extra JRE), after all smiley

The offer to install the Search App by Ask was still there, and checked by default.
Oracle actually offers a solution for disabling those 'sponsor offers': https://www.java.com/en/d...ad/faq/disable_offers.xml

I saw the announcement earlier this week on Dutch site tweakers.net (chrome can do a translation for you), so I thought: lets wait and see how well that's going to get adopted.
Next would be a 'real' developers' monitor 1:1 with 2560x2560 resolution and a 27 to 30" diagonal size tellme When that arrives, I'll try to order 2 of those at work Cool

44  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Is it wise for amateur to invest time in NET Framework languages? on: November 19, 2014, 01:51:31 PM
(While I was typing, mouser also posted, but...) In addition to what mouser said:

Javaw is as 'hard' as C#w, the mainstream .NET language, and does officially run on both Linux and Mac, next to Windows and a plethora of other OS's like Android (though with it's own programming model) and many embedded systems (think: IoTw).
.NET languages can be (created, compiled and) run on Linux, and derivatives like Mac, using the Mono compilers and runtime, but it is a kinda 'reverse-engineered' solution, as it originally wasn't supported by Microsoft, and still isn't fully feature-complete compared to the current .NET runtime, and some parts will even never be done for Mono.

The major IDE's for Java, Eclipse and NetBeans, are free. And there is a free community edition of IntelliJ IDEA by Jetbrains next to a paid version, where the free edition is also the base for the new Android Studio from Google (that currently has Eclipse as it's foundation).

Next to that, solutions for any programming dilemma in Java can easily be found using Google, while for .NET that can be a lot harder to find, or end up in a commercial solution.

(All of the above from personal experience)
45  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Still weird: The mouse is more accurate than a finger on: November 19, 2014, 01:38:01 AM
It's because you have to hover your entire arm above the screen, and point at something quite small, like a pixel on the screen and at ~400 dpi they can be quite small, versus resting your arm on a desk and finely control sliding a piece of plastic (the mouse) representing a sharply shaped pointer toward that same, still small, pixel.

Buy a good quality new CR2032, and replace it (again if you have to).

Assuming that the downloader-software doesn't 'improve' the directory entry when storing the download, using \downloads (without the drive-letter) should work, as you start the software from that same drive.

49  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: java -version -> 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external on: November 09, 2014, 08:27:33 AM
To get java available in a common CLI the environment variable Path has to be set. The value is set by the Oracle Java installer, but not (as in: can not) propagated to any open CLI. Re-opening the CLI is the least that has to be done.
When running the CLI from something different than the Windows Explorer, that application usually has to be restarted to get the new environment available for child-processes. The easiest way to achieve that is to restart Windows.
50  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: java -version -> 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external on: November 09, 2014, 05:41:24 AM
Did you restart your PC after the re-install, or at least re-open that CLI? If not then retry that first.
