After making some modifications to suit my needs (I need the form to display the connection ID) and compiling the "3.1m fork" I began functionality testing and soon hit a wall. It seems that due to the introduction of GDI+ to draw the connection ID labels the "3.1m fork" version won't work with any version of Windows < Windows XP/2003. At least not without first installing the GDI+ redistributable, which is often a rather large hurdle to leap since you're probably already working with someone who's less than computer savvy. Unfortunately for me, this was a deal breaker since many of our customers still run Windows 2000 and a few with 98 - despite my constant prodding to upgrade.
Perhaps this should be noted as a disclaimer on the front page of this thread?
I may repackage things with the gdiplus.dll included ... or try ChunkVNC 3.2 instead.
Please, share your thoughts on this...
Well I used the GDI "Hack" because the AutoIT functions "GUICtrlCreateLabel" and "GUICtrlSetData" didn't work correctly. I did however leave this original code in the "InstantSupport.au3" file which you are welcome to uncomment... see below:
- Code: Select all
; Show Connection ID
;$ConnectIdLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel('ID = ' & $ConnectId, 0, $LogoHeight, $GuiWidth, $IdHeight, $SS_CENTER)
;GUICtrlSetFont(-1, $IdFontSize, 800, 0, 'Arial Black', 2)
- Code: Select all
; If $ConnectId <> 0 Then GUICtrlSetData($ConnectIdLabel, 'ID = ' & $ConnectId)
Note: Actually I would replace the body of the "DrawConnectionId()" function with this code.
p.s. I think I originally wrote this code on a Windows 2000 machine so I would double-check the GDI+ requirement.
