UpdateEnv 1.0.0.5
« on: August 19, 2009, 02:11:19 PM »
This is a little program that flushes the Windows Explorer environment.  Similar to flushing disk buffers to the hard drive.  I've found on some things such as changing registry entries or disconnecting a mapped network drive, sometimes it can save you from having to log off, then back on to get Windows to let go or take note of something.

It's a stand-alone .exe.  It uses no registry or .ini settings.  Make a shortcut to launch from the shell or run from a command prompt.

UpdateEnv 1.0.0.2 Now calls EnvUpdate() function 3 times.  This should eliminate the need to run UpdateEnv multiple times to get the effect.  Uses "Toast" popup notice near the task tray, instead of MsgBox.

edit: Also no longer shows tray icon. The program only runs a few seconds and shifting icons around in the task tray is distracting. Finally fixed it. :)

UpdateEnv 1.0.0.4 Added an .ini file option ToastDirection.  The "Toast" is a slide panel that displays near the system tray by default. This is value 0. Center edge of screen left top right bottom corresponds to 1 2 3 4. This adjustment is mainly if you use other apps with the Toast sliding panel you can move it to avoid conflict. Or if you just don't like it sliding up over the system tray.
