[RELEASE] TaskSwitcherXP

Post by dgelwin » Tue Nov 15, 2005 7:55 pm

--oops forgot the reg entrie in the full to autolaunch it at windows logon. added, reuploaded. :D

--a quick side note, you can reintegrate any update for my addons over previous version, im trying my best to make them all backwards compatible, so unless stated otherwise feel free to just reintegrate the update over the previous without worries

--Update, i tweaked a couple reg settings in order to change the TaskSwitcher interface based on the theme your using, so now it suits every theme yay! :D, as b4 redownload and integrate over previous.

--update i updated the addon, i found an error in my inf file, it had 2 [string] setions and this was ausing problems during the install, sorry for the inonvinience plz redownload
--update added light version, special for kel to put in his uber pack, and anyone else that wants it, (warning light version does not have an uninstall)

updated my post, when i was cleaning up the code for the light version i noticed a glitch in the inf 2 [string] setions which caused problems with the string variables i used. so i checked the full addon and i also had same error there, so i fixed it and reuploaded the addon. (note if you previously downloaded the addon and integrated it, all you have to do is integrate this new one over it, it will not cause any problems i promise :D)

also i added the light version for those who prefer just the funtion and no crap, but warning light version is only one language and has no uninstall.

@kel
if you wanted u could always clean up the pack more by removing shortcuts, and placing the files in system32 directory and changing the autorun reg settings to reflect the location. :D

[DefaultInstall]
OptionDesc = "TaskSwitchXPlight"
Tip = "TaskSwitch"
Modes = 0,1,2,3
CopyFiles = prog.main,prog.lang
AddReg = prog.AddReg
ProfileItems=main.AddShortcut,config.AddShortcut,desk.AddShortcut

I do know that this section is not needed though.

i keep that section because lets say a program goes bad or user acidently deletes a file from addon all they have to do is place xp cd in drive got to %windir%\inf directory and right click install that inf file and its fixed :D (right click install uses the [DefaultInstall] install section of the inf)
by creating that section i can test my inf files without having to integrate addon or make a fresh install of windows, all i do is right click install, and check to see if everything that had to be done gets done :D

the light version does run on first boot so no you dont need to run the program. :D

note, the only difference between the light and full is all the junk the full brings is removed, such as:
xtra language translations
useless reg entries
uninstaller
xtra scripts for xtra functions (such as right click scroll activation of alt-tab dialog, this is like what opera uses)
desktop icon
a couple links from start menu.
and all documentation and help files

(in other words i basically removed everything except the executable files and the reg entrie to run the program at first boot :D :lol:)

@orcoxp,
#1 yes this is 2.0.8
#2 full version installs all reg key for all users, light version installs only the autorun key for all users(whih means yes it will autorun with all users created).
