Re: Full screen application {ALT} {F4} in version 2.17 is invalid

So, your not using simuated keystrokes for this? I'm guessing as you didn't answer me. When you are full screen does ALT+F4 on the keyboard work as expected or do you still have to exit full screen first? You could try simulated keystrokes and add {ESC} or whatever key quite full screen before {ALT}...

Re: Microsoft Edge

Old versions of what? Edge or XMBC? You havn't even told me what version of XMBC you are using. Is it 2.17 or one of the new Beta's? Anyway, it seems to work randomly here (as it sometimes it works, more often is does not). However, it is Edge that is not working, XMBC IS always sending the keys - a...

Re: Full screen application {ALT} {F4} in version 2.17 is invalid

Sorry, its not clear what you mean. Are you talking about simulated keystrokes, or the "close window (alt+f4)" option? If you are NOT using simulated keystrokes, can you try using that, along with {ALT}{f4} and see if that works? If you are already doing that then I'm afraid I need more information ...

Re: Better UI for multiple apps per profile

Actively maintained open-source project can live under your control. It's easier to contribute to maintained project than spin off a fork. If you just publish the sources archive - that will mean you're giving away the control over it to unknown people. Moving to Github/Gitlab yourself will mean yo...

Re: Better UI for multiple apps per profile

Yeh (I updated my post above after you had posted) but the "full" install of XMBC (beta or final) includes the PDF user manual. And if that is there, it will open that from the button in the about window rather than opening the link. This is good for beta because you can see the latest manual, befor...

Re: Better UI for multiple apps per profile

Defiantly off topic... new thread NEXT time please :). I didn't write the manual. A user (Maintrane) did - several years ago, and he was instrumental in some of the changes in XMBC v2.0. He has not been in contact for while now so I have been maintaining and updating it as I add new things. In the l...

Re: how to disable a profile with hold alt key?

Hi, I'll answer your last question first :). No there is no support for any OS other than Windows. XMBC ties tightly in to the Windows API and relies on mouse hooks. I don't know how Mac OSX/Unix works but I expect it would be quite different in this regard and therefore would pretty much be a compl...

Re: XMBC 2.18 Beta

Here is 2.18 Beta 18... If you have check for beta versions enabled, you should get notified of a new version and prompted to update in the next day or so. This is the most efficient method (bandwidth wise) as the updates are only a fraction of the size of the full install. Otherwise, you can get th...

Re: Voting for users ideas of making XMBC a better tool

It might work, but in my experience, there are not enough active users here to produce a valid result as the results will be swayed/biased by a significant few (3 users spring to mind!) so it may not be a good reflection of what the majority of users actually want to see. As it stands, my todo list ...

I must be going mad - did you move this post or did I completely screw up when I said "if it deserves its own topic then create a new topic!". Looks like I have been having too many late nights!

Re: Scroll Msg in Older Program

OK, thats a shame, I was hoping it would be an installation issue.... Running XMBC on HKCU is not a problem The next thing to check is to open the settings window (when running as a non-admin user) and make sure the correct profile is being detected. It will be highlighted (red (or yellow if selecte...

Re: Scroll Msg in Older Program

Hi, new users are required to make 3 posts (I think its 3 - it may be 5) before they can attach images/urls etc. You can email the image to me if you like (phil at highrez dot co dot uk). What is the application? If it works as admin but not regular user then that normally suggests that XMBC is not ...

First I brought this up quite some time ago, but it is still an issue for me, deserving it's own topic for discussion. LOL - if it deserves its own topic then create a new topic!

Re: XMBC 2.18 Beta

OK thanks for that - missed the apply option I guess. As to what it does - I don't really know. Its a windows settings and I presume it has something to do with cursor acceleration. I guess the answer to that is to look it up in the windows manual (and maybe copy it to the XMBC manual :)). Thanks, P...

Re: Prevent accessing LPT port by another application

I understand. At the end of the day you need to decide what your going to do. I cant do that for you. I can only make recommendations based on my experience and what I have done instead of relying on a parallel port as i simply don't know if you can achieve your goal using InpOut32 and direct access...
