separate user profiles
« on: September 04, 2009, 03:52:16 PM »
I love the concept of GridMove, seems to work good and I have a suggestion that would pretty much guarantee I would use it permanently.
There needs to be a way to tie it to different profiles. I use terminal services at work and some users have one screen, some have two or three screens. Each of the users should be able to change the settings in gridmove to their own preference. But the way it is now, if one user changes settings, everyone else gets hosed.
I think the ini file should just be moved from the program files directory into each user's application settings directory and it would take care of it.

Oh! Good point, I hadn't thought about that.

I think it's a good idea, and I'll try to add it as soon as I have some free time. To be honest, it may not be soon as I'm now on the final 2 months of my MsC :)

How's school going? Still looking forward to an update with profile compatibility. :)
(And still willing to give a good size donation)

Sweet. Thanks for doing that. :)

Just uploaded a new version which fixes some issues with this feature, it should be working now.

Just downloaded the new update (1.19.62) and it seems to be working fine with the multiple profiles. I've been swamped at work the last few weeks and am sorry I haven't gotten to that donation yet. I will try to have it to you by next week.

Also, a note about the gridmove.exe.ini path, on Vista and Server 2008, the path is "C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\DonationCoder\GridMove\", or "%AppData%\DomationCoder\GridMove\".

Cool :)

Yep, that was the intended behavior. Please also be aware that from what I was able to find, GridMove needs administrative privileges in windows 7 (and probably Vista too) to be able to move some windows.
