A very Happy New Year to our current and future users!

We have now released version 1 which has a host of new features and enhancements, not least is its multi-lingual support which extends not only to the product itself but also to its built-in Help Browser.

Circle Dock supports over 50 languages and the more popular ones (some 40+) are supported by its installation program, "SetupCircleDock". When you install, you can choose which language to use for the installation and this choice will automatically be set for the Circle Dock program (and its Help Browser). If your chosen language is not supported by the Installation program, select "English", install the programs and then change the language within Circle Dock's Settings dialog.

Please refer to this Topic for the download link - that Topic also has links for the online version of the Help pages (to which you may wish to refer before deciding if you wish to download the product) and to our Issues Tracker.

Caveat: there may be an issue with certain 64-but operating systems: if, having installed v1.0, you are affected, please post a reply to this topic, giving us as much detail as possible - including which operating system you are using (XP, Vista or Windows 7).

Thanks - and enjoy the rest of the Holiday Season!


Mark

Nice! So glad the 1.0 is released.  I found two problems in windows 7.

1. When the language is english, CD can't show unicode strings such as chinese.
   but alpha and beta1 can do this.
2. when CD was first installed, drag some shortcuts into the circle, the new shortcut can't be shown until being reordered or refreshed.
Where can i get the latest source code? is this open -source or .. ?

Good catch! Logged as Issue #43 and this has been fixed.

Logged as Issue #42 and due to some missing texts from the language master. I've fixed this also.

A refresh release will be uploaded shortly, in the mean time, I've removed the download.

Sarge and Rigel,

Please download this replacement DLL and place it in your Circle Dock Folder. It has to work!

I just used ResHacker to take a peek into the DLL you sent along.

Because it opened...I have to ask.
Are compiling in 32 or 64 bit.
This makes a huge difference in Windows 7
Normally ResHacker will not properly open 64 bit DLL's



The following is from the Config.ini:

also, and this may mean no difference at all/

I noticed that the error keeps referencing the DLL as 1.0.0.1
and the current version just sent is Version 1.0.2.2
????

Maybe I am just stabbing in the dark here  tongue

The DLL is compiled as a 32-bit Assembly and marked as "x86" which is what is required for running under 64-bit operating systems.

The following is from the Config.ini:
That is a temporary Config.ini which the installation program creates if there's no previous Circle Dock installation on the hard drive. CD reads this and uses it to initialise the new Config.xml file which is where the settings are now stored. The contents of yours are what I would expect to find on machine with a Pentium-based processor.

That's fine. The .Net Framework doesn't use Assembly Version numbers unless the assemblies are digitally-signed - which these aren't. (The "refresh" I'll be uploading in a few hours contains CircleDock.exe v 1.0.2.2, the DLL v 1.0.2.2 but the Help Browser will still be 1.0.0.1 as it hasn't changed.)

I'm rather bemused by this 64-bit problem as a friend of mine is using CD on a 64-bit Vista installation and he hasn't reported it not working.



Mark

Update: I've just uploaded a new version of the DLL (same location as before). This one is marked slightly differently - but I hope (and will be amazed if) it works!

We ran into a similar issue in Rainmeter...Ultimately the 64 bit version needed to be compiled as a 64bit to get it to work in Windows 7.....The x86 did work fine in Vista.

My guess...is Windows attempt to force x64 by Windows 8 by having true x64 compiling for the Windows 7.

I have just again verified that CD is in Program files (x86)  undecided

Unfortunately I have moved all my OS's to Windows 7 x64, 2008 x64, and Ubuntu...So I am unable to test in other enviro's at this time.

Let me see if I can get the Virtual XP going....Damn swore I would never use it  embarassed
Will have to rig my system, but it is a simple hack

May need to consider a 32bit and 64 bit version od CD  tellme

Hi,
  I have the same problem with new file. I try to delete the dll and CD give me the same error, can you test if CD find the file and report the boolean in error message. I think win 7 don't find the file or it search also other value to define the correct version. If the log have more info we can find the problem.
Edit: WORKS ^______^

Rigel proposed something quick and interesting.

So I did a quick test of removing the DLL and then placing it back
If I had to take a guess...I would say Rigel is correct in that the CD can not see or find the DLL (???)

Results as follows:

Hi,
  I found some bug:
1- Loading Setting splashscreen backgrund is wait and not trasparent (I think is an error)
2- If setting window is open and you click setting again the spash screen appear again instead of moving on top the setting window
3- Dock item initial positions:
  • Using thier Deafult Position, from top and from bottom: draw item correctly but when you scroll the item jump to opposite side of a ring
  • From right and from left works.
4- Label opacity don't work, always 100%
Edit: Yes sgtevmckay, you're right? I post too early so  I wrong, I start CD from more folder to test and when i try deleting file I start CD from the folder where the file exist? Too much wine in my New Year party  tongue

For myself: Neither

I am going to try an alternative install directory
For giggles: something outside of the UAC
I think I tried this before, but could not hurt to try again to be sure

Ok I am working some what on the updated DLL earlier submitted.

Placed CD in an alternative program file.
If is somewhat working.
Attempted to place an icon and got the following, but other than this it appears working at the moment.

I have placed CD in teh following directory:
C:\Alternative Program File\Circle Dock

Image of error:


I can verify that the dock is working for the most oart.
CD will not run from the Program Filkes (x86) with or without Admin Privileges.
There seems to be some tell tale Opacity bugs so far, and teh aforementioned error, but over all working at this time...
I will re-start system and see if operation continues

Ok....

Upon re-starting system...I can now drag and drop folders and icons to CD, and not get the error list before.

It is working smoother and is apparently doing what it is supposed too.

Now all we need do is iron out the Program Files (x86) issue and why this is happening.
With my previous Rainmeter experience I am going to guess it is a UAC thing.

I need to run to the pharamacy and get some pain killers for my knee and I shall return shortly.

Hi,
   the last dll posted works for me but I have UAC disabled. A possible problem if you click property in win file menu at bottom edge appear a security message with a disable button becouse the dll was not installed but downloaded directly.

That one has already been reported (Issue #42) and for some mysterious reason a whole section of the language master file - that defined the texts for the Dock Item Settings - was missing.

Okay Guys

I (am sure) I have finally worked out why Circle Dock wouldn't work on 64-bit Windows 7: the DLL was marked as "Hidden, System". Simple as that - I think! Though why this is only a problem on 64-bit Windows 7, I'm not even going to hazard a guess.

I've uploaded a "Refresh" (v1.0.2.2) which clears that problem (the DLL is no longer marked "Hidden, System") and the two other issues reported thus far.

Thanks Rigel and Sarge for your assistance!

I found, maybe, other bug. I translate in better Italian but some things are not translated as lists in dock shape.
When I translate i find<section name="MainContextMenu">...   <entry name="Explore">Explore Item's Folder</entry>, it's a future feature?

Apologies for the excessive time away
You realize this would make no sense, as teh new file was never hidden (???)


I am finding a load of bugs, but these may well be worked out with time.

instead of document the errors to death...I will make flash with what I am finding so far, so you can see what is causinh what.

The splash screen is not intended to be transparent.

2- If setting window is open and you click setting again the spash screen appear again instead of moving on top the setting window
I'm not seeing that here although that was a bug in a pre-release which I found and removed.

3- Dock item initial positions:
  • Using thier Deafult Position, from top and from bottom: draw item correctly but when you scroll the item jump to opposite side of a ring
  • From right and from left works.
Sorry, I am unable to reproduce that behaviour.

4- Label opacity don't work, always 100%
Quite right! But then, it never has worked! Labels are about the only section of the original source code I've not made any modifications to.
