SoundGet, too old for an ease of use...
Posted 14 August 2012 - 05:06 AM
I guess just a logic case for windows vista and later, else we have to run 2 times the script with a UAC prompt (admin right popup + compatibility mode)... I mean with a default OS it's very annoying, for example we can't easly create a startup program for manage sound. I know that we can disable UAC, or create super admin exe with a old xp mode and a microsoft UAC fix or run as service, but that's not good for portability, ease of use, or others... Thanks to listen my wish as possible, to have a function too , not only a command.

SoundGet does not need admin rights; just compatibility mode.

You make it sound so simple. Obviously, before the logic case could be used, one would need to write a version of SoundGet/SoundSet which uses the Vista APIs. I have no motivation to do this, as I've already written VA.ahk, which is perfectly adequate.

- We need to run as admin else
EnvSet, __COMPAT_LAYER, WinXPSp3doesn't work for "reload" a script, even on win7 with an admin account
- Admin right or UAC prompt have to be discard if we can (also compatibility mode prompt), else we can't create startup program or too annoying to click everytime
- Too much user are on windows vista ,7 and now 8 , it's like doens't support the majority of user
- They are no link about your library in the helpfile, hard to search for a newbie and because it is a special Vista title
In all case, we will have a popup or manual things to do (click popup, or search and dl your lib, if we know how a lib work), script will need compat and compat will need admin right, exe will only need compat with a manual properties settings (still UAC prompt)... That doesn't sound like automation for begginers.
WHY ? Ease of use ! But do as you wish, I know it's not simple else I already did it, and you (will) do all the work...
Edit: Perhaps you can distrib some of your libraries with your new installer, to do a nice packaging, that can be a good shortcut to an half implementation and better for to be modified or helped by community...
sorry again if my reply sound arrogant, language barrier.
