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 really handy.
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!
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.
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.
