T-Clock / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download)

Good day.

I noticed there was a new version of T-Clock today, so I updated my files. It's supposed (?) to ask about checking for updates when it starts the first time, but it does not, even if I give it an empty .INI file and let "options.exe" through the firewall, it still does not ask about it. Also, the UpdT registry value is incorrectly typed as a DWORD when in fact it is 8 bytes long, the 32bit value + 4 zero bytes (amazing that Windows lets you write more than 32bits into a DWORD; must be a "feature" lol). So I notice that Options.exe is the one doing the update check, that means you run Options.exe every time T-Clock starts? Kinda defeats the purpose of having a separate executable if you run it every time anyway...

That's it folks.
Keep up the good work!
Best Regards,

Good day.

About "Control Panel -> Display" well.. isn't really "Display Properties" either... "Personalize" would be the closed to the old "Display Properties" on XP... not only is it what people tried to reach, it's also the exact same page tongue IIRC on XP "Display Properties" was also a menu entry if clicked on the desktop like it is for Win8 with "Personalize"

Personalize does not have a link to Screen Resolution, or monitor disposition, which is what I was always trying to reach when I did Display Properties in WinXp. Annoying that it's now 3 different panels, lol. You can pick "Personalize" if you want, it does have a link do "Display" (bottom left) with which you can reach Screen Resolution by clicking yet another link on the left...

Best Regards,

Hi White Tiger.

what do you suggest? Remove it on Vista+, Rename it to "Personalize" on Vista+ and open that one?

Are you able to open "Control Panel -> Display" ? That's the one in Win7 that starts with Text Size, but it has all the other display options on the left, like Screen Resolution, Personalize (at the bottom) etc...

As for MISC, we just think differently on what goes into miscellaneous; to me it's things that are not needed that go there :-)

Thank you.
Best Regards,

Anyone else see this behavior?

me, the current developer :P
Will investigate if it's a regression or Vista+ compatibility issue^^ (by means, also opens "Screen Saver" on my Win8)
Though "Display Properties" is flawed by design since Vista+ I guess^^ There's no such thing anymore (at least hard to reach on Win8)

Thanks for the quick response, I appreciate all that you and Stoic Joker have done, this little tool is really neat!

I agree, since Vista, there is no single Display Properties as there was in Xp.

One observation: Why are the DLLs and the XpCalendar in a sub-folder called MISC? Just dump'em in the root folder - since there is no installer, it is ever so slightly confusing if they are needed or not (since the WAVES folder is clearly not required, one might ask if the MISC folder is also not needed). What should go in the MISC folder is the Digital-7 font. Just my 2 cents ;-)

Best Regards.

Good day.

Discovered t-Clock and derivatives tonight, researching someone mentioning the tool on a usenet forum. Nice tool - I dont know how often I've moused over the clock in the Systray waiting for the toolTip to show up, so I could know what date it was (obviously I use a 1-Line high toolbar).

Installed T-Clock Redux v2.3.2β and played with it; discovered a "bug?" @ least on my Win7 system:

Selecting "Display Properties" in the context menu brings-up the Screen Saver dialog, NOT the screen properties (the later which Win7 calls the "Screen Resolution" choice on desktop-background-right-click)...

Now I haven't rebooted or anything (I never really reboot) but I did try the menu item several times always with the same result...

Anyone else see this behavior?

Thank you.
Best Regards,
