Hey! Sorry for keeping quiet for a while, been having loads of other issues on my home network.. To keep it short, i ended up installing windows 10.. But i have found yet another way for you to easily keep the vsx volume alive, by installing it as a service. This would eliminate the need of a startup item as the service “daemon” would keep the app active, unless you ask it to stop. I use a very neat app called NSSM (the Non-SuckingServiceManager) to install and manage my services (deluge for example), but i havent found a way to run the vsx volume as a service. I do not know how your app works under the hood, nor do i know how the “arguments” option in the service installer works, but it might be something as simple as formatting the arguments string properly.. In any way, i suggest you take a look at it, as this services in windows appears to be available from windows 7 and up, possibly even earlier.. And prehaps the services argument options would replace the shortcut target options? That way it wouldnt require a separate and user-maintained shortcut to save across app updates. And regarding the windows 10 update, your app seems to work fine, after i got all the dependencies installed. but its impossible to install the version numbers you listed earlier, i had to go for windows 10-compatible installers and your app nagged for version incompatibility for a while before windows update fixed it. So a healthy, well updated windows 10 is actually not that unpleasant when you get the hang of it.. i can FINALLY write “cd d/program” and “ls” in cli and scroll in inactive windows by hovering the mouse on it, so im golden!
Hi, No worries with that 🙂
Unfortunately i can’t make this a windows server due to no keyboard interaction from services, i’ve used NSSM previously. it’s possible to do a service that controls the “daemon” but honestly i have no experience in that area.
I’ve had no issues at all with this application and windows 10 but i actually run Mac OSX (Hackintosh) on my system more than windows now so don’t use the app all that much.
Wait is LS a command on windows now?
