Simple logic, IMHO:
if (minor_fixes_only || noDevTimeAvailable) {
  keepTheOldStuffJustFixIssues();
} else {
  refactorIntoModernStructures();
}

  • Classic Shell is probably the best way to avoid the new 'Modern UI' with tiles etc.
  • If no touch-capable I/O devices are detected, most touch functions won't have any impact on normal day-to-day use of Windows 8
    (and: Windows 7 already has integrated support for tablets and other 'touch' based devices too... ohmy)

The problem is probably somewhere in your Taskbar settings, like AutoHide or similar, or a rogue driver or tool disturbing your Taskbar behavior in some way ohmy

I have written a C program which will do only what I had described as a requirement, ie.. wait till next day...
That is what my 1.0.0 version, released a week ago (parameter: -+1), can do already... undecided

Updated ScriptLineCounter to version 1.6.0.0

What's new/changed:
  • Added: New FileFormat nr. 4, based on doc-files supplied by Saira, the original initiator of this tool.
      note: This format is quite similar to FileFormat 2, so it may need to be forcibly used on some files/filesets.
  • Added: Setting the FileFormat from the commandline using -ff parameter, or set from the ini file, as documented in the readme.
  • Changed: GUI now has the Fileformat combo box enabled, to force a specific file format to be used.
  • Improved: Some more robustness while handling the file contents.
  • Added: A warning in the readme file to NOT use Windows Notepad for editing the properties files, as it inserts a BOM in UTF-8 files, not supported by SLC.

TODO: (in priority-order)
  • Improve and expand the GUI interface (partially done)
  • Add some unexpected features smiley
  • Fix any bugs or issues reported (3 until now ohmy)
  • Possibly add headers and footers to the output
  • Replace own logging system by log4j (already required/used by some libs)
  • Handle pdf files for input
  • Handle extra file-format extracted from samples received (4 file-formats supported now)
  • Write a Readme.txt file
  • Create a GUI interface

That's about the same level I'm at Grin One of the reasons I'm not into game-development Wink

And after that: Get VirtualBox, and install the required OS for the application (XP should probably do fine, but Windows 7 would imho be safer/more robust). Don't allow the guest-OS access to network or local resources.

@nkormanik: What f0dder said:
Also, almost forgot: what's the symptoms when you try to launch the application? If it's a "Windows failed to load JVM.DLL" kinda message, it might be as simple as a x64 vs x86 JRE version issue.
You have (also) installed the x86 version of Java I assume? It sure looks like the SAS application is x86, and those are not capable of loading a x64 edition of the Java dll's. (If the application just shells out to a Java.exe then it would have worked as expected.)

Best suggestion for this direction so far is that it runs fine on Windows XP. It's highly unlikely that you are running XP x64, and unlike other software, Java needs to be installed in the bitness (x86/x64) of the application trying to use it, not the OS. On my x64 Windows I only have x86 Java installed, as I use no application(s) that require a x64 JVM.

NB: Full-blown Java applications shouldn't care nor matter what edition of the JVM is installed, except that the x64 edition has more memory available for applications.

been using Virtual Box (VBox).  It was picked up by Cisco, but they haven't ruined it ... yet
huh Isn't that Oracle? (www.virtualbox.org, check page-footer)

I propose we have a thread where we can recommend gadgets that we like,
Thmbsup

Gadget to be read as in 'totally generic gadget', or does it have to be software-ish?

SleepTill updated/reached version 1.0.0

By request I added a few parameters/features:
- Date and Time offsets from 'now' can be specified
- No longer accepts '-' as option-specifier (needed for the days offset)

The offset for days can be specified by using -+<days> instead of a date. (Both the - and the + need to be there!)
Specify the offset for hours or minutes (seconds is no useful option imho) by using :+<hours> or ::+<minutes>
If an hour or minute offset is given, it is calculated from the current time, not from 00:00, that wouldn't be usable.

The updated /? help message:

SleepTill 1.0.0 (c) 2012, Ath : Wait for a date/time to occur, then continue.
Usage:
SleepTill [date] [-+days] [time] [:+hours|::+mins] [/d] [/?]
[date] : Optional date in yyyy-mm-dd format, default: today
[-+days] : Add 'days' to current date to wait for
[time] : Optional time in hh:mm[:ss] format, if not supplied: 00:00
[:+hours|::+mins] : Add 'hours' or 'minutes' to current time
/d : Show some debugging info
/? : Show this helpmessage
Remarks:
- Either date or time, or both, should be provided to start the wait
- Date/time should be in the future to start the wait
- Pressing Ctrl-C stops the wait


Download attached zipfile and extract. Use as documented.

I can add a feature like that. I'm not sure when I'll be working on the dev-system where I've made this tool. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow. Please hang-on.
469  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: ~$300 Laptop/Netbook recommendations on: November 13, 2012, 02:17:18 PM
Only some general advise:
Get a current model, not last-years shop-sale type of a 'bargain'.
Select on the screen quality/brightness, there is a difference; and take home the one that you tested being good...

For a girl of that age, looks do matter, AFAIR Wink

Which adds the most entropy - adding 30 to a number, or adding 10 three times?
I'd add 7, 11 and 13, because they're prime numbers, adding 31 in total which is also a prime number... tongue tongue Grin

473  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Strategies to stay with Windows 7 as long as possible on: November 12, 2012, 04:35:58 PM
Windows 7 dropped support for 16-bit programs and programs which include legacy 16-bit code.
Minor correction: That is for x64 editions only, and it happened on Vista x64 (and probably on XP x64 before that) already.

475  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: WinSendKeys (Automate Task Scheduler) on: November 11, 2012, 04:50:43 AM
Can you attach your Strokesfile please?

Edit: Seeing that you (seem to have) added --winwait schtasks.exe 6 to wait a maximum of 6 seconds for the executable to be loaded, that is probably the solution you need. Running the executable without permitting it some time to get running is apparently a bit too quick.
That's not an error, a feature or a bug, but just how things go (in Windows), IMHO.
