AutoWallpaper and Dual-Core

April 6, 2007

I recently received an email from an AutoWallpaper user that has a dual-core processor. It would appear that there is a problem with AutoWallpaper when used in a multi-core environment.I am investigating the bug but as I don't have a dual-core system myself it will be difficult to track down. If anyone else out there… [Read More]

AutoWallpaper Mac Edition

March 23, 2007

I've recently been playing around with the AutoWallpaper code on Mac OS X and after about 1 and a half weeks of minor tweeks and code reworks I have a working version running. There will be a few differences between the PC and the MAC versions. For a start I have no way to code… [Read More]

HCPro Vista Business and AutoWallpaper update

March 18, 2007

The installer has been fixed for all versions of Vista (at the least the ones I can check with). Home editions seem to be a little more accepting of administrator rights. Vista Business and above require confirmation of administrator rights each time HC Pro is launched.A new update will be available for AutoWallpaper 2 soon.… [Read More]

HyperCoder Pro Vista update

March 12, 2007

I've released an updated installer for Vista which has an added Administrator Rights manifest embedded into the application.This works well on the Home editions of Vista but there is still an installer issue involved with Business editions (probably only when logged onto a domain).

So, to get HCPro running in Windows Vista all you need to do is right click the icon (or program) and select 'Run as administrator'. You can also set the… [Read More]

A bevy of updates

February 19, 2007

The last few days have seen quite a few updates to AutoWallpaper. These have been implemented with the help of a user that has a rather unusual screen layout. One portrait orientated monitor and one landscape monitor. But the updates have also seen a few other new features like 'proportionally fill and crop', aspect control,… [Read More]

Vista and HyperCoder

February 15, 2007

It appears that the release version of Vista has a problem with HyperCoder Pro. I am investigating the problem but will involve quite a lot of work. HyperCoder Pro was original developed with Visual Studio 2003 and as anyone who has upgrade to Vista (and uses VS) will know Microsoft isn't supporting VS2003, only VB6… [Read More]

Let there be NAS, and, taking a bite of the Apple

February 9, 2007

Finally managed to solve the NAS issue in Vista. After scrabbling around in the loft I located the box to my network storage enclosure and raced off to find the website. One quick firmware flash later and I was fully vista compatible. Hurray.I also had a little time to run 3d mark 2006 on XP… [Read More]

What a lovely vista

February 5, 2007

Firstly, in case you missed it. The release of AutoBackup 2.5 occured last week. This was a particularly special update as it finally sorted out the problem with Microsoft Office Word documents (and some other formats). As some of you may know, AutoBackup 2 (and other realtime backup apps) couldn't detect the final save of… [Read More]
