What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Use multiple monitors on Windows 8. 2. Change to desktop 2. 3. Secondary taskbar is gone. What is the expected output? What do you see instead? The secondary taskbar should appear on all desktops.
This was an easy one to fix. Just had to add the secondary taskbar to the list of items on all desktops. Just in case anyone was wondering, the class for the taskbar is “Shell_SecondaryTrayWnd”.
This issue prevents enterprise-level installation, for prospective users in many companies that operate corporate firewalls with virus/spyware blocking. Would it be possible to offer an OpenCandy-free installer, please? Possibly as an alternative to the mainline one?
To fix this situation, I have setup http://getmdesktop.com to serve a version of mDesktop excluding OpenCandy if you pay anything at all. I think this is an acceptable solution since you are using mDesktop in a commercial environment!
Thanks for a great app! It would be awesome if a window that you're currently dragging (i.
e. moving around by keeping the mouse pressed) would follow to
your chosen screen if you use Alt-#. Mac OS X does this which is
Took care of this one pretty quickly as soon as I got myself re-acquainted with the mDesktop source code.
Starting tomorrow, I will attempt to fix a bug a day. I’ve kinda neglected the project over the past 2 years because of the lack of money it brings in. But I’ve setup a new site (http://getmdesktop.com) to try and fix that.
Hopefully in a couple of weeks we’ll have a new clean version!
I released mDesktop 1.6 Beta 2 today. This release was mainly focused on the settings menu.
I know there are some hotkey options missing, so please let me know what other combinations you’d like to see.
Just a heads up, I’m currently planning on selling mDesktop 2.0 for a dollar. I’m still not 100% sure though.
So its been a while since I’ve posted any updates.
I’ve been completely re-writing mDesktop, but anyone who watches the svn would know this. I released the first version of mDesktop when I was 15 and I’ve learned a bunch since then. And with the recent interested I feel like its necessarily.
The picture above is a screenshot of what the new Settings menu will look like. A very generous contributor has put this together, as well as new icons and other things, but I’ll talk more about him when I finish and release it.
mDesktop has gotten so fat over the years. Many of the bugs are caused by me just “patching” it and not actually taking the time to find a solution.
I’m almost finished with a big project at work, and after that I will have a lot of time to finally get a new version out.
Thanks for all the support and just hang in there for another month or two.
Started working on a Desktop Pager. Its not much but its a start.
Also branched off so I can rewrite the Settings menu, and create new objects for handling the windows.
It seems like the closer I get to finishing the new version of mDesktop, the further away I am.
Sorry for the delay in getting 1.6 Beta 2 out. Some time this next week I’m going to stick to the roadmap and disable all of this new stuff I’ve been working on. At the very least I’ll finish the support for custom hotkeys.
I’m probably going to do something like this, instead of allowing the user to enter their own.
Anyway stay tuned.
If you use mDesktop from the SVN, please be careful with the latest revision. (r54)
In Windows Vista and 7, it can and will mess things up.
I just want to say thanks for all of the the comments and reports. I
really appreciate anyone who takes the time to a) Try my program then
b) Post any bugs or features or general comments.
I know it’s been a couple of weeks since any commits have been made,
but that’s just because I’ve been hard at work on an oAuth library for
ahk, the language mDesktop is in.
I also want to take a second to talk about my plans for mDesktop.
For a while now I’ve been working on re-designing, re-branding, and re-licencing a few of my main projects. mDesktop is one of these and will be undergoing some changes in the next couple of months. (2-6)
When mDesktop hits 2.0, or is stable enough, I will be changing the name to Cubicles. The project will continue to develop, but it will cost anywhere from 1-5 dollars. The source code will still be available, either with the purchase, or in the svn. Still not sure about how that will work yet.
I don’t feel like thats a lot of money, but hopefully it will be enough to help get this and many of my other projects on their feet, and eventually allow me to do projects like these full time.
I will be setting up some system so users can be “grandfathered” in, allowing for free downloads and updates for all current users.
Again I appreciate all the support and donations.
Any comments or suggestions?
