This is actually very easy to fix! Its not a bug as far as Im concerned, being a programmer myself I recognized something in the XML code, and know something about how running external programs work using API. Every program has a class or parent name. Let’s take a common program such as Acrobat Reader. The executable is AcroRd32.exe and the name of the program is Adobe Acrobat Reader, but when the window comes up it shows “Adobe Reader” XML is very powerful, but very specific. It identifies case and other specifics. If you open this file in notepad: applications_externes.xml you will see some entries, if you have created any external application entries. The part in the section for each program, the application name, the path, the finding text etc. If you open the xml file mentioned, you will see these entries. I use a program to play dvd movies called Power dvd. PowerDVD.exe is the executable, but when it comes up on the screen it shows exactly like this= “PowerDVD Deluxe version” in this exact format with the caps as they are. If my Finding Text or (texte_recherche) in the XML file does not reflect this exact name, then the problem occurs. Because neocar needs to resize the application to fit in the window, it has to run an API call to find the parent window, and if the name is wrong, it cant find it. Not a bug, more like a missing guideline. If your program is still not working, then do a Ctrl+Alt & Del and see what your Task Manager thinks your program name is. Hope this helps everyone.
