Some minor updates and fixes.
- Run after installation - The installer has an option to run the program after installation. I’ve always appreciated this option in other programs but until recently, I couldn’t find a way to do this in a Visual Studio generated installer. I’ll blog more about this particular technique in a future article.
- Migrate settings - Again a minor annoyance. The settings class in the .Net framework does not automatically migrate settings from one version of the program to the next. There’s a technique to do this I’ll discuss in a future article.
- Translations - German translation has been updated (Thanks Thomas!). Added Slovakian (Thanks Vito!). Currently, Desk Drive supports German, Italian and Slovakian. Come on folks, it’s only twenty strings and a simple text file (look at DeskDrive.exe.xml in the distribution). I would really like to have Asian languages supported (Chinese and Japanese especially).
- Changed “Show locus effect” to “Show positional effect” (Thanks again to Thomas for the more descriptive phrasing).
Do not hesitate to send comments and suggestions. I read them all and try to incorporate the ones that seem to matter most. For instance, the idea to exclude specific drives came from a user (Thanks Jeff!). I’ll put up a survey later to discuss the most interesting ideas.
