Hi All

First thing I have to say is that this is GREAT app!

I'm trying to use it on Windows 7 build 6801, but the app doesn't start. I have to run it in Vista compatibility mode, and then I get access to the basic functions.

There isn't much in the way of a diagnostic log since it wont start in a service 'mode'

Has any one run tried this yet, or is there a new Beta build available for testing?

Cheers

Paul

I saw another post with the request for Windows 7 for/from Herman. Why hazzle/bother the maker of these fine programs with questions about support of his free programs for a still non-existing Operating System?

That you people probably use illegal downloads, doesn't mean that Herman also has to do the same.......

Thanks  for sharing your findings.

I already knew this, simply because it's 'by design'.

The only reason I did this is creating the possibility of commercializing my tools at some point. I have no serious plans yet, just considering the options.

I have chosen this approach because I didn't think running the current pre-beta versions of Windows 7 for everyday use is a serious option so nobody would be hurt. Another option is to turn it into a time bomb so the tools will at least work until the final of Windows 7 will be released.

“Why?” you might wonder. Not to nag anybody or because I don’t want you to use it on Windows 7. Contributing to a better Mediacenter experience has always been and still is my main drive.

The 81.000 downloads until now turned into 60 donations. This is one out of 1.333. A little disappointing isn’t it? Especially for something that directly saves a number of you tens of euros per year on their electricity bill.

After paying my hosting bills there might just be enough left to get me a single Windows 7 license from last years donations.

Not much left for new development tools or upgrading hardware...

Private users and system builders that don’t feel donating makes a difference are SERIOUSLY taking the risk of me loosing interest in the project. It’s your choice but I am sure it’s not what most of you want.

A new toy every now and then and a little appreciation is what keeps a man going.

So whenever you feel ANY piece of freeware is useful to you consider if it's worth keeping alive by making a small contribution.

Bravo!

(Just out of curiosity: those 60 payers, are the two 'Windows 7 users' among them?)

Thanks for the information, and the thoughtful response. It’s good to know that your software will not require any major fixes when Windows 7 comes out. I was planning on waiting until the next MST version came out to donate, but I suppose there’s no harm in giving now. Just don’t forget about that RunOnResumeUserInterface registry event.  Wink

Just out of curiosity, Kajee, how many of your other 1751 posts are as unhelpful as the last 3?

Make that 62, but as an authorised Windows 7 user, it would be nice if this functionality would work - this is the first time I've needed to use the software.

I've found that 0.9.094 on Windows 7 doesn't work for me on windows 7.  it won't run at all (no error, just nothing).

0.9.091 does work for me, but I have a problem with that ver (not yet sure if it's win7 or mst fault), in that the setting in MC "start MC at windows startup" get unselected freuqnetly.  strange.  have tried various settings in MST (restart MC, don't restart MC, etc), but no difference.

Are you sure it's not under the 'hidden icons' (small arrow up, on the system tray)?

yes.  1.  I turned that new 'feature' off.  2.  it doesn't show up in taskmgr.

I've made just Donation # 64. I've used this MST Tool several years now and it fixed my Standby issues (first Windows XP MCE 2005, then Vista, now Windows 7). Keep up the good work (that Microsoft should have done in the first place... ) Herman!

Since I'm using Windows 7 beta now (and use MST 0.9.091) support for Windows 7 would be really appriciated.

I'm new at this, but impressed.  Made donation #65.  Using the 09091 version.  We definitely would appreciate Win 7 full support.
