RE: getting a message and a sound together
If you're talking about text-to-speech, I've written a script to do just that, using Windows's default TTS engine. It narrates your contact's messages with the option of saying display names as well as your own messages. Hopefully this'll help, ...

RE: Windows Live Essentials 2011 released
What? I don't use XP, that's the weird thing. I'm on 7, plus I'm also on the latest version (14.0.8117.416). So far it hasn't bugged me again, it's letting me sign in and everything, but it did try to get me to redownload the 2011 suite from W...

RE: Windows Live Essentials 2011 released
It's weird. I attempted to log into WLM9, but it wouldn't let me unless I upgraded. Eventually I gave in and just clicked Yes, but it didn't appear to do anything: it's still WLM9 but I can log in now. I have no idea if this will last though, so ...

RE: Windows Live Essentials 2011 released
Yeah, I downgraded to 2009 again only to find that it wouldn't let me sign in because "The Windows Live Messenger team has identified an important security issue in Messenger." And of course they seem to have removed personal messages as well, un...

RE: [request] Games in the "Show media"
Yes it does, but it doesn't set the Now Playing message properly since the formatting change in WLM9. In the case of my tweaked AppMon+, the problem can be easily fixed by distributing the information displayed, as if either the title or artist par...

RE: [?] Displaying steam status in PSM
Ah, thank you very much! I just got rid of all mentions of exename and exenamey and made both path strings lower case so they matched exactly. Now it works perfectly.

RE: [?] Displaying steam status in PSM
It seems so, but as I said, I have very little experience with this WMI thing, plus I'm a bit rusty on my JScript. Little help, anyone? And is it alright if I post the responsible parts of the code so people can help and/or tell me what it does exa...

RE: [?] Displaying steam status in PSM
Thanks guys. AppMon+ seems pretty good, but it seems to need a bit of tweaking to get it work completely with WLM9/Windows 7... the open file dialog doesn't show up. The XML thing might work if Steam stores the XML file locally (I don't want to kee...

[?] Displaying steam status in PSM
I searched around a bit but I'm sure it's been asked before. Is there a way to get what game you're playing in Steam? It seems plausible but I'd say it'd be mostly done with DLLs and not JScript, right? Thanks :P

RE: Check whether control is focused
Thanks a lot, it seems to be working perfectly now :P I just wasn't sure if it'd return what I wanted, from what the MSDN article said it seemed like it included entire windows as well.

Check whether control is focused
I have an EditControl that, when the text changes, checks whether it's focused (there is a secondary EditControl that does exactly the same). I searched the forums and found the GetFocus function via SetFocus, but the function doesn't seem to have ...

RE: How can i get MSN to run in my notification bar?

RE: How can i get MSN to run in my notification bar?
Go to C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger and open the properties for msnmsgr.exe. Then select the Compatibility tab and set it to Windows Vista SP2. This should do the trick, although it's not recommended to do it as some features of Messeng...

RE: text links in quick messages,is it possible?
You could have the actual destination in a tooltip when you hover over the link, but sadly I just don't see the general user base "getting it". The current way is much safer, yes, and much easier for people to know how it works.

RE: Tips at sign in
No, sometimes Messenger comes up with these "Tips" about how to use Messenger and so on. It's not Windows Live Today, they just randomly pop up every once in a while at sign-in. It seems there's just no way to stop these coming up.

RE: New Motherboard
It's SATA, it doesn't need jumpers :P Perhaps there's something on the drive that's causing it to load the Recovery Options?

RE: Name this socket
That looks like a BNC connector to me. I've got one of them, it says Telstra on it but it's being used for digital TV. It needs a power booster cause the signal around here isn't too good, and a BNC-to-TV aerial convertor so it can plug into the T...

RE: WLM2010 concept skin
Wouldn't that sort of be the point of having the white background there? It'd be much better if that white background was in the contact list as well, and have all the free space glassed. It looks very nice, but a few tweaks here and there wouldn...

Changing User Picture on Win7
Since the DP Sync script has been rendered useless by Windows 7, I thought I'd try to update it for myself. It seems that the Shell.Users ActiveXObject doesn't exist anymore or has been moved in 7, but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know wh...

Or unless you don't even use the features which have issues. As long as you don't use tabbed chats, etc. everything seems to work properly.

RE: Recover sounds
It looks like some of the stuff the COMCTL32.OCX needs is missing in Windows 7. As for the VB redistributable, as it's not supported in 7 it doesn't seem to install properly.
