I found the awesome application (MinimOther) which does exactly what it says on the tin and is working like a charm.
However I'm struggling a little and hope you can help?
I have an application (Relation.exe), once opened it opens multiple other windows within itself. if I minimize the Relation.exe then it minimizes the app and all the windows within it. Therefore when MinimOther is running and I open a new window within itself it minimizes the whole Relation.exe itself therefore taking all the other windows with it.
I know the app ignores dialog windows which it seems to handle (i think). It seems these additional windows within Relation.exe are not dialog windows and are therefore treat like a seporate application.
Do you know if there is a way to stop it from minimizing windows within an active window? Also maybe some flexiblity to exclude certain applications?
This reason we want this application urgently is due to the fact that when minimizing an application it frees up so much memory (RAM), rather than flicking between applications which holds onto memory.
Example of RAM usage:
Outlook.exe - (on open: 24MB), (Minimized: 1.5 MB), (on restore: 6 MB)
Relation.exe - (on open: 80MB), (Minimized: 3.2 MB), (on restore: 9 MB)
We work in a terminal Server enviroment and users share RAM, by running MinimOther we can cut memory usage significantly!!!!
Your help would be much appreciated.
Please let me know if you need any further information.
