Screenshot Captor / Re: Problem with right click menu navigation
« on: November 04, 2021, 04:48 PM »
EDIT: Solved thanks to assistance from the developer of PowerPro.
Anything you can share? Might be helpful for other users that find this thread.
The answer is only relevant for anyone also using PowerPro and it's in here. You have to change a specific setting in PowerPro.

Thanks for your interest. I use the portable version of the program on a Local Account (standard user). My ConfigDir.ini is // PORTABLE=TRUE
CONFIGDIR = C:\Users\myname\Documents\ScreenshotCaptor.

a) When I run Screenshot Captor with the Local Account the problem exists and I cannot move the mouse on the entries after right clicking the tray icon.
b) If I run it as Administrator then there is a problem with the tray icon menu.
c) If I run it with the other program (PowerPro) running then there is a problem with the tray icon menu.
d) If PowerPro is not running then there is no problem with Screenshot Captor's tray icon menu.

Please note that with PowerPro running other tray icons are not affected in the manner described.
I can access the Screenshot Captor popup menu with the keyboard arrow keys. The problem is caused when I try to use the mouse to navigate that menu.

I'm wondering if there are two separate issues here: One being running Screenshot Captor as Administrator or not and the other one being running Screenshot Captor when PowerPro is also running or not.

Screenshot Captor / Problem with right click menu navigation
« on: November 02, 2021, 02:23 AM »
When I right click the tray icon the menu of items pops up. However, as soon as I start moving my mouse over the list of items the whole menu disappears.
I'm running Windows 11.

EDIT: The problem was not observed using a Local Administrator account. It happens with a Standard User account.
I'll try deleting and reinstalling the program (portable edition).

EDIT 2: I'm 99% sure that the incompatibility has to do with an other specific program. I'll investigate.

Say, inside menu 1 I have four commands, A, B, C and D. If I only want commands B and C to appear as batch buttons while also keeping them in the group of menu 1, I can only do so by creating another menu (menu 2) in which I include (copies of) commands B and C and set menu 2's attribute to "Treat as batch button". Therefore, I end up with commands B and C in two places.

Thank you very much.

A rather minor observation: I especially like the option of having a menu being treated as a batch button. This is particularly helpful on PC startup, because I usually launch a number of programs before I get down to using the PC. However, why is this option not available for individual commands? I had to copy several commands in a "startup" menu that I created in order to make it work and this resulted in some duplication that could otherwise be avoided.

I am testing out LaunchBar Commander after having used FARR for quite some time. I am trying to see how I could run a program in LBC as Administrator. This option is available with FARR, but I couldn't find anything equivalent in LBC.

Thank you for the update.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Does CHS handle Rich Text?
« on: January 28, 2015, 12:20 AM »
I hope that CHS could one day handle RichText and formats other than plaintext. It would be a huge enhancement.

Thumbs up from me too about FARR  :Thmbsup: . I wanted to make this posting in order to express my appreciation for this great program and also to welcome the news that its development continues.

I look forward to the next update, although I should add that I have no complaints about the version that I currently use.

I'm making the rounds doing updates on my apps -- FARR is getting just a minor update this round, but i expect to be doing some more substantial improvements in the coming months so stay tuned.

Many thanks.  :up:

Thank you for the hint. I'll try and follow it up.

That's wonderful. Thank you very much indeed.  :up:

Thank you for this fantastic application.

Is it possible to install the online quote fetcher book addon manually, that is without having to run a setup.exe program?

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Two problems with Hamnotes [SOLVED]

I solved the problem by reinstalling the plugin and also deleting the alias "hnote\s". I don't remember when, how or why that alternative alias was created.

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Two problems with Hamnotes
« on: February 25, 2013, 12:14 AM »
When trying to use hamNotes with FARR version 2.206.01 there are two problems:

1. I cannot get any of the commands to work, for example "hnote /a", "hnote /k", "hnote /pref" etc. As soon as I enter them a search begins for "hnote" on one of the USB drives on my PC. The only entry that works is "hnote\s" which brings up the Command Center infomation.

2. I cannot change the path to the default hamNotes save directory.

I would greatly appreciate any help with these problems.

When I disabled all of them, Fspell would work, showing the icons etc. but the OLEAUT32.dll would still appear. The error goes away only if I disable the FARRSubScript.dll. In this case the CZB_pack plugins do not work :(.

The FARRSubScript version that I'm using is 1.10 which I found in this thread https://www.donation....msg152159#msg152159 .

Further to my previous posting I can now report that I think I have found what causes the error which I mentioned. After a process of elimination, I concluded that the error is caused by FARRSubScript.dll. If I disable it the Fspell plugin works with no problem. Perhaps now someone could fix it.

The Timer plugin sounds or voices do not work here. Windows 8 64x.

Thank you very much for your attention to this matter.

As I wrote earlier, I'm using the portable version which I copied to the Windows 7 c:\users\myname\appdata\roaming subdirectory. I have several other portable applications installed there too.

I'll try and see if there may be similar problems with other plugins. My experience so far is that the OLEAUT32.dll error message does not only occur with Fspell. For example I had this problem with Windows Search. The first time I ran it FARR crashed, and when I restarted it the OLEAUT32.dll error came up.

Using the portable version of FARR installed on a Windows 7 notebook. I do not see the proper icon for correctly spelled words. I see an icon that looks like a DOS screen. Also I do not see the Thesaurus entries in the list. All dictionaries and the Thesaurus are located in the FarrSpell plugin directory.
Very frustrating. :( I would appreciate any advice on how to get it to work.

EDIT: Could the problem have anything to do with what program the dictionary files and the Thesaurus are associated with on my PC? I noticed that the Thesaurus is associated with Windows Media Player and the dictionary files are associated with "Windows Shell Common"...? Furthermore I get the following error:

Find and Run Robot
Access violation at address 75AF48FC in module 'OLEAUT32.dll'. Read of address 00000001.


EDIT 2: Problem partially solved after reinstalling FARR and plugins. The dictionary files in the original installation were not in the right subdirectory. However, the OLEAUT32.dll error is still there, every time I try to access any row in the list of suggested words.
