Re: InfoWarp - launcher, text store/find and reminder app

burque505, How curious on the update checker. I use the same code that just pings http://www.yahoo.com. If the ping works then it looks for a text file on my Blog containing the current version number. I pretty much have that code in my other applications. I use it at home and it works in the office...

Re: InfoWarp - launcher, text store/find and reminder app

gregster, I will plan to move information about InfoWarp to the forum you suggest. I've been working on it since July and haven't decided to make it open source as yet. I am hoping for more feedback from this forum in either case. Mike So that's closed source? As I understand it, the Scripts and Fun...

Re: InfoWarp - launcher, text store/find and reminder app

burque505, Sorry about that, on my Win 8.1 system there are 399 icons in the imageres.dll file. I will just save a version that doesn't use imageres.dl and link to it from the Blog page. Mike Hi Mike, I just tried the new version (1.4.3), I run Win7 64-bit, same error iPhilip gets. Same results as 1...

Re: InfoWarp - launcher, text store/find and reminder app

iPhilip, I sorta went wild adding icons to a lot of Menu items. I was trying to just use shell32.dll for those icons but it's not sufficient. I have been using the program on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 with no DLL path issues. I can perhaps find additional icons and not use imageres.dll if you are u...

Thank you for the contribution. The blog link is not working. Also, is there a way to download your script so that I can try it?

Thank you.

InfoWarp - launcher, text store/find and reminder app

Updated to v1.51 (10/19/18) In InfoWarp, I have combined several earlier applications. The program uses a data folder and stores items in text format. A rich text notepad is also incorporated which saves to RTF and Text. The program is a Document, Folder, URL and Program launcher with these capabil...

Re: Quick Notes. RichEdit version.

drozdman, thanks so much for this version. I've been looking for a way to incorporate rich notes into a recently developed application. I have just added some shortcuts and renamed the GUIs with names instead of numbers so as to make insertion into other apps easier. http://s355751075.onlinehome.us/...

Help! How to send clicks or keys to the CMsgBox function

The first button is named &Text. When I open the window, I can type a t or press the space bar and Button1, the Text nam...

Re: Virus falsepositiv detection

I was having a similar problem with 1.1.28. Working on a program for the last two years and all of a sudden Avast was freaking out every time I tried to run it or make copies of it. I went back to 1.1.27.7 and recompiled. Now Avast is behaving itself again. What a pain!

Multi-Launcher == A different kind of program/document/web launcher

Hello all, I got an idea from a coworker who is always complaining that we have too many files in too many locations to keep track of. I thought what if a program can track 1) Which applications are used, 2) What documents are being worked on, 3) Where I've been in folders and 4) When (I know, doesn...

Re: Tools for PC Technicians / Network Administrators

Just the person running the script needs Domain Admin rights. You will need to tweak it for your network. Do find/replace on .hrc.corp with your domain name/suffix for starters. Also note all of the File Installs. All are freeware tools or already come with Windows. Microsoft LAPS and RSAT will need...

Re: Memory Hogs - Process, RAM and CPU monitor

Thanks for the info. I've used WMI and other commands extensively in my PC Dashboard app I used at work to get all sorts of PC Info. I had seen Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfProc_Process numerous times in VB and PowerShell scripts but wasn't using Path properly with it in a WMIC command. I will experi...

Tools for PC Technicians / Network Administrators

Over the last year and a half I have developed several tools for use in my job. All the tools are written in AutoHotkey except two which are in AutoIT (I guess I need to rewrite those). I help manage and troubleshoot several thousand PCs at work. Two of the tools I use regularly are pictured below. ...

Re: Memory Hogs - Process, RAM and CPU monitor

Hey guys and gals, I also added Critical to the Refresh routine that updates the List view. I was noticing once or twice a day that the icons were messed up. I'm not sure if it was other processes on my system bogging it down when the list was updating or not, but, reading some other posts about Ima...

Re: Memory Hogs - Process, RAM and CPU monitor

Here we go once more, if we look at this page https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/116074-get-memory-info/ he figured out some of the other memory values based on psapi.dll\GetProcessMemoryInfo function call. But, Private in this instance is not Private Working Set, which is what Win8.1 uses. :cry: I'...

Re: Memory Hogs - Process, RAM and CPU monitor

I just ran VMMap from Systernals. It shows that Windows 8.1 memory in Task Manager is Private Working Set instead of Total Working Set which is what Win_32_Process returns. That's why it is always a higher number. So, depending on what you read, Private Working Set is more accurate but not available...

Re: Memory Hogs - Process, RAM and CPU monitor

I noticed if I didn't display program icons, the flicker is much less noticeable. I will look into it some. I did add the function above for CPU for each process and it is okay but not great. The number is usually lower than what Task Manager reports in Win 8.1. Just change these lines to add the Ge...

Re: Memory Hogs - Process, RAM and CPU monitor

I found this code in an earlier post and it mostly agrees with my Win8 task manager within a couple of percentage points. Sometimes I think Microsoft is just messing with our heads on these numbers as they seem relative to the application. Win 7 task manager different somewhat than Win 8.1 I haven't...

Re: Memory Hogs - Process, RAM and CPU monitor

Thank you for your comments. If you get the CPU used by each process worked out that would be very helpful. I just haven't had a chance to visit that again. I can get some Process CPU values but they don't seem to exactly agree with Windows 8.1, same for Working Set memory. My Windows 8.1 PC shows s...
