    [slvd] CPU/memory/temps not displaying

    Well...They display, just not correctly. Temps show as 32 degrees all around, CPU as -1 constantly, and the physical memory as 1.8gigs out of 1.2. As you might imagine, having 4gigs of physical, that might be amiss. =)

    I thought it might have just been something I did, didn't do, or something specific to my motherboard, but it's doing the same thing on this laptop with windows 7 64-bit (same OS on both). Skin doesn't matter, I've tried a couple now. But default is DFX4.

    I'd just straight post this to bugs section, but someone else stated they didn't have an issue in 64bit win7, so I'm probably just missing some directx or activex plugin. Can someone tell me how it's getting the info? I probably just need to get some ocx that isn't installed by default, but I have no true idea how it's getting the info.

    Thanks!

    Are you running speedfan? Speedfan has to be running, and the labels set up correctly for it to work right.

    I suspected that for the temps perhaps, but the memory and CPU in use? Don't recall installing that for my XP 32bit install where everything worked.

    Just installed speedfan on the laptop here, nothing changed.

    The Temperature Displays require either SpeedFan, MBM or a HARDWARE (32F = 0C which is the default value). The CPU and memory don't require any other software, however I personally haven't tried it on Win7 64bit -- which may be an issue (?). CPU may be a permission issue, while the memory may be a limitation with the APIs we use -- we'd probably need to upgrade somehow.

    I have UAC set to the lowest on it, which is essentially turning it off, correct? But I tried here and the car running it as such, no change. CPU in use/load and Memory are still wrong.

    The OS version, main drive size, in use values for it, and the CPU speed are correct.

    Temps are unchanged by installing speedfan, which does display them running by itself. I assume that's just a case of the labels being wrong.

    Yeah, this took some research as I've never actually altered or really messed with much of any of these skins, settings and such before. I got it sussed for this part though.

    DFX uses the MBM5 label (motherboard monitor) in the task_man skin, so just needed to change it to the speedfan one and alter the appropriate Tvalue for the temperature.

    Making me learn stuff, bastids!

    I did a quick search, and I think I know the answer. But just for s**ts and giggles...

    Is there a repository available to get the current dev version? I'm going with no, but never hurts to ask, I assume it's only available to the rest of us through the current NISU cart down-loadable version, correct? It is just once per month barring a major bug-fix as well, right?

    There's a SVN repository, but it has controlled access. We're actually trying to get things OUT of the core code and put it into plugins, so contributions are best made in the form of plugins. In regards to bugs: when a buf is reported/fixed, we generally can send out a beta version with that bug fixed before the next release -- at request.
