Find And Run Robot / Re: Launching win7 start menu items

On Win7 64-bit, there are *two* program File folders - the one you would expect to find and another called Program Files (x86) for 32 bit apps.

I've seen a number of vendors' scripts for their products fail because they did not make the distinction.  Dunno if this is related (probably not as yer talking about windir) but there might be some similar changes in other locations that you should be aware of also.

I am *TOTALLY* that flexible, when I do the back bend just before I squeeze myself into my plexiglass cube for the night.

I have to admit though, that at 232 pounds, my ribs don't stick out quite as much as the performer.

Okay, it's lunchtime and that means it's time to squeeze myself into the shoebox cafetia.

Later gator!

Okay, stoppit!

I'm at work and was just mezmerized for 30 minutes.

I have that cartoon on my wall.  I do so many software installs in the course of a day, you'd think a progress barr would become JAPB.

I prefer the minimal approach as well, and have often cursed M$ for their animated flying papers that wriggle and float from one folder to another.

For my part, not being a programmer, I have often wondered how the darned things work.  Do they actually measure progress? Is it a percentage of the over all program size that's measured?  Is it the percentage of the number of files that are to be installed?  Does it measure the programmers' perceived notion of how long the install should take?  Does it measure some sort of programmatic "marker" during the install, and then in turn updates the progress bar?

Maybe now someone will be able to answer these questions for me, and I can get on with more important things in my life, such as how they get the tiny grains of sand into that little hourglass, how close to the speed of light does my clothes washer goes on the spin cycle, or perhaps why my cat has a slice of buttered toast stuck her back....

I guess I'm still the retard everyone tells me I am.

Thanks guys! Looks like that pocket of mine will stay unused then. Well, unless I should finally start smoking ;)

Sweet jesus no!  Do not take up smoking.  I have a lot of regrets in my life, but smoking is right there at the top.
