A more subtle bug fix.  Thanks again to cranioscopical for pointing it out.

First post updated.

One thing that I should note.  If you have ShowNotRunningOnly=True in the .ini file settings, which is the default, if a program of the same name as the one you closed is running, such as another copy of Firefox or chrome, the button will never show in the list.  This is because the ProcessExists() function just checks for the exe name as in firefox.exe.

If you run multiple copies of ff or any other program and want them to show on the Button Panel try quitting ReRun and editing the .ini file.  Set ShowNotRunningOnly=False or =0.  Then they should be added to the list as soon as they become the active window.

Another note.  The program should run with the Button Panel closed unless you are using it to launch.  While the Button Panel is showing the active window detection loop is suspended.  That's one reason why it closes as soon as a Button is Pressed.

Please let me know if you notice a bug.  :)

I am running ReRun on Windows 7 SP1 x64 in a VM just to see if it can get the command line arguments.  Turns out it can, even when not run as administrator.  So it looks like it is Windows 8 blocking it.  One more reason to get back on W7 when I get a desktop machine.  Unless they make W10 more cooperative.  :)

On the plus side if you run ReRun as administrator on W8 it looks like it can consistently get the working directory at least.  :)

I'd say it's on the upswing, generally speaking.  The pace seems glacial.  But I do get to keep my mind occupied.  The college library is nice and quiet.  If I can figure out some way to avoid dragging the suitcase then people won't automatically assume I am homeless.  But fear of terrorism has eliminated all but long term storage.  Maybe I will take a look around again soon for a reasonable cube rental.  A light backpack for a change of clothes and shaving gear and maybe a lightweight tablet would free me up to move around more easily.  Time will tell.  :)

I hope things are well with you and your family.  :)
