Screenshot Captor Places Small Window on Desktop
« on: April 25, 2008, 10:28:38 PM »
@mouser,

Recently Screenshot Captor has started placing a small window on the Windows desktop on my desktop and notebook computers.  I closed it earlier and it might take a restart to get it back.  It is really just the title bar - the rest of the window is not showing - and it is only about 2" long, but when I maximized it the full SSC window showed.  I have SSC configured to start minimized and to minimize and close to the systray (Windows Notification Taskbar).  Currently I just click on the close X at the top right of the title bar and it disappears - actually it is just "closing to the systray.

This appears to be a fairly recent thing, as I do not remember seeing this for very long.  I'm not sure what version or build it started with as SSC is automatically updated with Dcupdater.  It definitely did not do this in most earlier versions I have used.  It is occurring on both my desktop computer running XP Pro SP2 and my notebook running Vista Ultimate, both of which are presently running SSC 2.37.03.

This is not a problem; just a very tiny annoyance, and that only because I'm so anal!  But I just wanted to report it.

Thanks!

Jim

it only happens when SC is started automatically at boot time, right?
assuming so, it's a known issue i hope to have solved in next release.

Yep.  Exactly, bootup only.

Sounds like you already knew it.  I didn't see anything before I posted; sorry about that - if it is already posted elsewhere, then I should have searched more diligently.

Thanks mouse-man!

I appreciate everyone being patient about waiting for updates.

I go through periods where i release a lot of updates and do bugfixes and feature additions based on user requests, followed by periods where i have to spend time attending to other matters.  This has been an unusually long such period and i appreciate the understanding.

This is probably redundant too, but when you save an image, Snapshot's interface is always in the way.

(It would be useful if there were options to directly upload snapshots to online services like ImageShack etc.)

Hope you're not too overstressed today Mouser!

That's my 2 cents for the day!
