  • Cannot embed this program with Road Runner

    Can anyone help?

    I am trying to launch/embed this app in Road Runner but it just goes full screen all the time.

    Here are my settings:

    [GENERAL]
    PATH = C:\Program Files\DeltaDash\DeltaDash.exe
    TryEmbeddedTimeOut = 5
    WindowSearchString=TfrmMain

    I have used windows spy and followed instructions here:

    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=45526

    but its still goes full screen...

    Would it be possible for someone that is in the know who could download the software and emulate what i am trying to do with RR and maybe get lucky?
    Its only a really small download and i would really appreciate the help as i have tried everything i know to get it to work correctly.

    Demo version of software can be found here:

    http://www.ecutek.com/downloads/DDDemo.zip (656kb)

    ECUTEK'S main site is here: http://www.ecutek.com/ (if anyone would like to look before hand)

    There is no installer, just unzip the program and place it into a folder and it will load up in demo mode and then if you could setup the program to auto start up "in car dashboard" options/Auto Startup Window/ In Car Dashboard then exit the program and now each time the program loads up you will have various ECU displays like revs, boost etc.
    If someone could then get the details from windows spy and see if you can get it to embbed i would truly appreciate the help.
    Ideally the absolute best would be a custom skin mapping the keys F2 to F8 for the various modes (Dyno Run, diagnostics, ignition retard) etc but for now i would like to see it working in road Runner before i give a dedicated skin a try.

    If someone could help me out here i would truly appreciate it and if there is one wish from Santa round about now this would be it.

    Cheers!!

    Wish I could help, but I can't. I do have to mention how far the EcuTEK software has come. Makes me wish I still had my WRX. :'(

      I noticed your username... ECUTEK is pretty much the daddy over here in the UK for what they do and they are big players...

      Wiredwrx, you don't need to have a carputer or a scooby to try out my dilema above.
      If you download the software and run it on a home pc it just runs in a demo mode and pretends its connected to the ECU of a Subaru.
      Then all what else is needed is someone in the know with Road Runner installed on there desktop pc to try to embed this program.

        Ya. I had a reflash done on my MY02 WRX, but at the time, the EcuTEK SW was not available like it is now. I miss those days.

        There are many more educated RR people out there, I am hopefull someone will pop on and give you a hand. Also, I am at work now, and downloading is a BIG NO NO.

        Good luck.

          Not all programs can be embedded, some programs really fight hard against any kind of window manipulation by other applications .. COPILOT if known for that. and any application that wants to run full screen is most likely to do it as well..

            I dont know about the full blown program, but with demo version Winspector shows ClassName as "SysListView32" and window as "FolderView". Try either or both of these. Also have you tried to use the launch folder? My obd2 program works well from there. It may be as Guino says as I also have had problems with some apps. Good Luck.

                So what are my options then if it will not embed? Is there nothing i can do to make it work?

                  Try out skinbedder. IIRC it is designed to embed windows. Maybe i'll work with this.

                    Also does it have any bearing whether this app i am trying to embed is highly skinable? Could altering some settings in the app's skin settings make it work in RR?

                    Here is a list of what i can alter in the app:

                    I will have a look at that now and thanks.

                      Well i managed to grab v2.9999 and i get an error on startup.. think im going to give up on all this really... i had such grand visions of carputer heaven and spent the last year using an inverter to power my pc and after leaving it on a few times and 3 charges of a car battery later (or a year on) i got a shutdown controller which is great tyhen i had a system crash and i can't use hibernate for some reason due to something on my pc. then i repair an install and now im wanting all my apps integrated into road runner but in reality all this is either beyond me or im just right down with the bad luck period. Don't know what else to try anymore and i know its been more hassle than pleasure over the years.
                      I cant even get microsoft mappoint 2004 running in RR and ive set the port, map settings, folder location and windows class name and i hit the GPS button and nothing happens.

                      As you can tell its a bad day here...

                        Well it looks like this is one program i am going to have to have living outside Road Runner.... Dam shame as this is the final piece in my puzzle to Road Runner heaven. Then again i may get lucky with some other subaru owner that is rather clever in the bedding skins department but until then its a waiting game for me.
                        I did get version 3 working however, but using it is beyond my feeble powers after reading the readme file...

                        Would anyone suggest i get a coder to look at the program due to the coding skills needed?
