Odd because all the "Show desktop" option does is send "Left Windows Key + D" key sequence... so Im unsure why that wouldnt work when other things do work :(.

I will try and reproduce it here - unfortunately my development desktop will not let me update to the fall edition (my laptop updated fine but my <x64 1703 Enterprise> desktop wont update, even with the MS update tool!! (typical). Just in case its important, what sku/edition are you using (Pro, Home, Enterprise etc.)?

I tried to assign a combination of Win + D at the press of a button - it only worked once. The next time then I press the button in the program it is shown in yellow that the click was, but nothing happens ...
I have Windows 10 Pro, but this problems is all Windows 10 versions.

You can download ISO from official microsoft site, open it and launch setup — after what your PC will be update with saving your information.

Turns out this "feature" (many consider it a bug) of reopening apps is disabled on my Win 10 as they are all joined to a domain....
So fresh install on a VM, here we come.

Hi Phil,

I noticed that the "Description" field in the SimKeys window is at the bottom unlike the other windows where it's at the top. IMO it should be somewhere at the top too, maybe right below the "How to send the simulated key strokes:" line, or right above the 'tags' text field. In that case the sentence "Type the key sequence into the box above." should be changed or removed.

I'm not sure I agree with that - the description is a new "feature" and is a relatively low importance field compared the the rest of the fields/controls on the form - so being at the bottom seems reasonably sensible to me. I see your point about the others being at the top - maybe they should all be at the bottom... I'm not sure, and I'm not sure its worth me moving it all around ad this point in time (I'm trying to get 217 released before my signing certs expire again!)

hello,
I'm getting bsod since the latest Win10 Fall update, when dragging files/icons (anything) with the mouse while XMBC is installed. Has this been reported? Is there any solution to this?
( Same problem as here: answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/systemserviceexception-win32kfullsys/a84467d3-b7a7-44c7-98ea-c6f14271f17c?auth=1 )

Not reported, and very unlikely to be XMBC related. BSOD's are much lower level (drivers/kernel etc.) an application can not/should not be able to cause a BSOD, much as the answers on the link you provided!

A gentle reminder, XMBC is not a driver. It operates entirely at the user level and has no access to kernel or drivers that might cause a BSOD!

Thanks,
Phil

Oh, sorry to hear about the certs edpiring Phil, that's most probably your bigest concern right now.

Exactly!
I thought that maybe you've saved that for a later stage with the reconstruction of the SimKeys window (when the time comes) but anyway I decided to mention it.

Phil and injtsvetkov.
In my opinion it looks rather unnatural to have description field on bottom. But it's not really big of a deal.

I agree. But as Phil has mentioned its importance is indeed lower compared to the other fields which will be used in all cases and the description field most probably won't be used by all users. So no matter top or bottom as long as it's the same for all windows :)

OK here is 2.17 Beta 13.

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 the full installation beta HERE. Note that this link will always get you the latest beta version!

Changes since v2.17 Beta 12:
  • #530 - Fixed a crash/lock-up when opening the "run application" and "Specific Window" dialogs.
There are no changes to the translation template for 2.17 beta 13.

Any problems, PM me a copy of the log file (or post a snippet in a code block here).

Thanks,
Phil
