Hello, Mouser.

I'm having another problem with MS security essentials not running correctly and, while trying to find out why and fix it, I found a setting where I cd turn off transparency of window frames. I turned it off but am still futzing with security essentials and haven't tried to capture the offending Electricsheep window. more later.

Y'r ol' Bud,

Fike

Hi, Mouser.

I mucked about some more and learned:

If I start ES from its "settings" window [available by desktop context menu Item "personalization"/then screensaver -OR- from an item under ES in "all programs" under start menu] I can capture the active window with no perceptible delay and can resize/shape the window. Sometimes screen capture is accompanied by closing of the active window but not often enough to be bothersome.

So, I'm back in high cotton and happy.

Thanks for y'r help,

Y'r ol' Bud,

Fike

Re: y'r questions

1. without determining the pixel width and height, it seems to be the right size. The window edges and label "electric sheep" do appear in the black captures.
2. image captured properly with the old setting and long delay.

I'm running electricsheep from the "run in a window" sheep's head icon found under windows 'all programs' via the start menu.

I just tried capturing [using the active window keystroke combo] the entire screen filled with ES started by "preview" mode in the windows' screensaver chooser app and it seems to work fine.

It also works fine capturing the entire screen filled with ES while it is acting as a screensaver turned on after 5-min without user input.

I could use it this way but prefer to use the smaller, always on window which I can size for portrait or landscape postcard images.

I hope that's clear. If not, I'll try to clarify.

Thanks,

Fike

The entire window is black.

a prtscn of the entire screen works ok [ from the prtscn key, the key bar at the top of my desktop or the choice in the right mouse key menu of the icon in the tray.]

The black active window results from either the keystroke combo or the bar at top of desktop.

Thanks, Mouser.

That fixed the delay problem however now I get black window captures when electricsheep is running.
