Can you try this beta and see if it fixes the zoom problem?

mouser, between "capturescreeen" and "capturedesktop", can you add another option like captureprimaryscreen or capturemonx, where 'x' is the number of the monitor to be captured?

Sorry for the late posting about the update..

v1.33.01 - Nov 28, 2015
  • [MinorFeature] Added -escapequit option. If user hits escape while doing a region or window capture, the program will exit (rather than return to minicap interface); should be used in conjunction with -save and -exit to prevent minicap interface from ever showing.

Love the app but I have a couple of suggestions:

  • There should be an option to capture the mouse pointer
  • If I'm using the command line then any generated error output should go to stderr with maybe an option to also display it in a GUI, either way the program shouldn't be left running on error, it should automatically exit (or again make the behaviour optional).

Wow I can't believe I don't have an option for whether to capture the mouse cursor/pointer.. The ability is in the code so that is an oversight, I will add one immediately.
Your second point about stderr is valid, let me consider.

Maybe I misunderstood, should I be able to download this from somewhere, the download at "http://www.donationc...r/MiniCap/index.html" is from last year.

Please try downloading the newly uploaded v1.34 from the download page and see the documentation on two new commandline options:

-stderr
If the parameter is passed, all errors will be sent to stderr stream instead of being displayed using messageboxes on screen.
-cursor
Includes the mouse cursor when capturing an image

Thanks "-cursor" works fine, if "-stderr" used then the program should exit under all circumstances, I tried "minicap -? -stderr" and got the error message "Unkown commandline argument '-?' to stderr, but it was waiting on stdin input (also note spelling mistake in error message).

I also tried "-capsound" and that doesn't produce any sound, I doucle clicked the wav file and it sounded proving my computer doesn't have any audio playing issues...

you can use -exit to make it exit automatically, though i suppose i could enable that whenever it sees -stderr flag.

i'll check the capsound argument.

Thanks, thats only a nice to have, I will keep an eye out for an update.  Is there any documentation on what the dll's do, the program seems to work fine without them (I did install them to try "capsound").

Thanks
Dennis

The CloseApp dlls are completely unusued in the portable version, they are only there to help the installer (I'll update the portable zip maker to ignore them).

The DcKeyHk.dll and DcMouseHk.dll are used ONLY when you invoke the -captureredregselect or -captureobjselect commands, which use a special "red box" overlay on the screen while you are still able to interactive with your desktop.  If you don't use those commands you don't need those dlls.
