Circle Dock / Re: pb with shortcut drag/drop to circle dock

The panel shown in your screenshot is not from Circle Dock itself. I need to see the Item Settings panel as shown in the screenshots below:


The problem may be because of the French language of your system but I have others who use French and don't have the error.

Circle Dock / Re: Circle Dock Install problem

Just out of curiosity, what version of Circle Dock are you using and what is the native language of your operating system?

From the error message, I believe it is a bug with the AMS.Profile.dll file because when I initially modified it to fully support unicode, I did not realize I had to multiply one of the numbers by 2 to fit the characters in the stream. This bug was hard to catch because most of the time, the program that uses AMS.Profile.dll start up fine even with the missing 2. I thought I replaced the AMS.Profile.dll with the fixed one. I know it's in Custom Desktop Logo and the code for AMS.Profile.dll is in that project.

I've attached the most up to date AMS.Profile.dll file to this thread. Just unzip that attachment and replace the current AMS.Profile.dll file in your Circle Dock program directory.

Developer's Corner / Re: Patent trolling or not?

If the idea is truly novel and non-obvious to an expert in your field, then I would support a patent, even if it is a software patent. I think the problem with some software patents granted are that they are not novel and not non-obvious to someone working in computer programming. It doesn't make sense to patent every single way that you can solve a problem but if it is indeed some method that is not known or could be developed easily by someone else working on the same problem, then I say go for it.

I think the key question to ask is if you gave the problem you solved to a large group of programmers, would someone come up with a similar idea when solving your problem. If no, then I say you can patent it. If you think that there is a good possibility that someone else would think of it, then I say that it is not patentable.

However, patent offices have some weird ideas about what can be patented and what can not. I think we should start a topic in General Discussion about software patents and what should be patentable and what cannot as well as list some real life examples.

Circle Dock / Re: Excute all files within folder

I don't think the ability to execute everything within a folder is a feature that is built into Windows itself and I didn't put that into Circle Dock. The best option would be to write a AutoHotkey script that would execute everything you want in one go.
