couple WB5 issues

Monday, October 31, 2005 by geyster | Discussion: WindowBlinds

A couple issues. If they have already been addressed, sorry for being redundant.

1)I run ewido security suite on my machine. On boot-up, ewido crashes. If I unload WB, reload ewido, & then reload WB, everything gets along OK. But when WB is running first, ewido has a problem.

2) I usually have to load a blind twice. The first time, not eveything skins (taskbar, start menu). Then when I load it the second time, it's all there.

Which version of WindowBlinds are you running and which version of windows (including service packs)?

1)I run ewido security suite on my machine. On boot-up, ewido crashes. If I unload WB, reload ewido, & then reload WB, everything gets along OK. But when WB is running first, ewido has a problem.

Add ewido to WindowBlinds' "Per application" list and exclude it from skinning. This should resolve the issue of it crashing.  The reason ewido does this, is because parts of the program are "Owner drawn" and aren't handled by the same drawing methods most apps are.

2) I usually have to load a blind twice. The first time, not eveything skins (taskbar, start menu). Then when I load it the second time, it's all there.

Does this happen only with specific skins, or is it a frequent problem with any skin?
