  • Need a FEW good testers - UAC support

    I have been working on core changes in RR's file management
    in order to get DATA out of the program's directory
    this will allow RR to become UAC compliant for vista AND future OSs (WIN7)

    for a long time, way before vista, people(programmers) have been sloppy and writing DATA in the "Program Files" directory, it has always been against MS rules, it just worked out that it seemed everyone on XP was an administrator. in corporate environment, we know thats not true. and now in new MS operating systems, there are restrictions on even admin. I agree with most of them. its designed to keep things secure. UAC in vista is a bit naggy, but its much improved in win7. and UAC keeps NON computer savvy people out of some trouble. (PLEASE NO DEBATE ON UAC, its not going away)

    I have relocated all DATA to the users profile DOCUMENTS directory
    this is a work in process, many issues will show up
    mostly with SKIN design, and plugins..
    poor programming with FIXED paths will be the #1 culprits
    followed closely inappropriate files placed in the RR root directory
    mostly by skinners

    some of the key skins will have to be looked at and adjusted
    i dint know how this will go, it just has to go

    i coded the file manger in RR to run in 2 modes, LEGACY mode, works just like it does now, and PROFILE mode, where data is stored in profile

    one nice thing in profile mode, is backup, and export/in port of settings
    In profile mode, i organize files a bit, prob more coming too

    I need right a couple of people to use the new RR.exe in thier current system, it should work the same as it does now (3/2009) release. This testing is to make sure i didnt break any LEGACY mode. switching to profile mode is easy. at some point, ill code a app to automate it. profile mode is for XP TOO!

    where did my core testers go?

    i need some testing of the newest code

    here is a snip of history
    Code:
    03/17/09
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    + when HORM support is enabled, playlist was never actually saved, it is now
    # Fixed winamp.dll (GetVersion)
    + Initialize method call from plugin manager, passes in plugin's computed data path
    + RRExtension Example (for above Initialize)
    + Debug now logs player name and version number
    
    
    03/10/09
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ! Internal File Manager Active (Legacy / Profile Modes)
    # Fixed where the "winamp.m3u" files comes from now correctly supports ALL versions of winamp (profile based)
    
    
    03/07/09
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * MOVED code up where log is started, so more init process can be logged
    + New logging for GDI+ errors (gdi+ create)
    + when GDI+ isnt avail or fastmode != -1, check image types (frm backgrounds) if png (since png isnt supported) log entry is created and rr will display skin error
    -Thanks

      Do you still need a tester? wouldn't mind turning UAC back on for a bit as long as it is for a good cause
