The installer uses the X10WTI  x10driver installer which  I can't  rework even if I wanted to the files which are placed in the Program files x86/common/x10 folder should not effect how AHP works as any changes done to these files are done via the windows OS the issue is with files changed by the end user. I also expect you to have issues with AHP timers and macros if AHP is located in the program files folder as Microsoft also applied extra security to that folder of the 64 bit OS. This is why I recommend moving AHP to C:

Hi Tuicemen,

So far it seems to be working, but I haven't as yet tested it fully; been working on getting MAPI working.
What I did was install AHP in the regular Program Files, that went ok, but the X10Nets is still directed to the PF(x86) "Common Files" folder in folder X10. After I let Lifejacket transfer my x10prod.sys to the X10-Common in the PF(X86),
I then put a copy of the X10 folder into the "Program Files" "Common files" folder, and everything appears to be working.

I know your not using AHP anymore, and it's been a long time since you created your AHP installer & Lifejacket.
But, If you could revisit the installer so when the initial AHP installtion is changed from "Program Files (x86) to something else like "Program Files" all the following installers make the same alterations.

When we last communicated, I had tried an initial installation to a Windows 7 machine, using the LifeJacket default so it came up registered in your name; that's the one running now. But, my intention was to get it running under Windows 10, and registered in my name.  As I said it does appear to be running correctly. Once I get this MAPI issue sorted-out I be able to give it a proper test.

Good communicating with you again, I'll let you know how things turn out (I think I've finally got a handle on the MAPI issue)  :)

I must have missed this sorry.
The installer installs to program fules if your using 32 bit OS if using 64 bit it installs to program files x86 that is the way the installer works. You then can move the AHP folder to where ever you wish. I do not recommend placing it in  the Program files folder. The X10 folder needs to be where windows installs it as  it includes system files .Ive not experimented with moving the X10 folder only the AHP one. Life jacket looks for x10nets from the folder depending on the Os bit version

Hi Tuicemen,

Don't know if you ever reviewed my previous post, but I've managed to resolve the problem.
Because the target PC was new, I simply resorted it to factory setting, and started from the beginning.

The only issue I see with your AHP installation package is that even if one directs the installation to "Program Files" folder [as opposed to "Program Files (x86)], the installer still puts the x10 folder in the Common Files folder of "Program Files (x86)". One needs to copy that folder to the Common Files of folder "Program Files".

Hi Tuiceman,

It's been a long time, about a year.

To refresh, I needed to move AHP to a new machine, at that time the old machine was inaccessible so I couldn't get the Volume ID; but I have since been able to do so from a backup.

Currently, I'm finally getting around to migrating to a Window 10 PC.
Everything went well until it came time to run Lifejacket.
As we discussed, I redirected the installation away from "Program Files (x86)", because of the extra security issues, to the regular "Program Files". However, even though AHP was installed there, for some reason "X10Nets" was still in the "Common Files" of "Program Files (x86) and the LifeJacket "Stop service" function couldn't find it. Curiously, the other Lifejacket functions (Start & Status) work.
I was able to resolve the problem by moving a copy of "X10Nets" to the "Common Files" folder of "Program File" and was ultimately able to register AHP in my name.

You may now ask; 'what's the problem?'.
Not being able to leave well enough alone, I assume LifeJacket would interrogate the registry to find the "X10Nets" service, so I changed the address to point at the "Common Files" folder of "Program Files". Unfortunately, when I went back to restore the original Volume ID, the "Stop" function could no longer find "X10Nets" (Start & Status still work).
I even tried restoring the PC back to before any of the installations, re-installed everything. But, now, even if I move a copy of "X10Nets" to the "Common Files" of "Program Files" the Lifejacket "Stop" function can't find the service.

It seems that address of the "X10Nets" service for the Lifejacket "Stop" function is hard-coded (not obtained from the registry), because the other functions (Start & Status) work.

I'm desperate, I hope you have some suggestions.

Thanks, X (BTW: my name is Joe)

Here is a little fact widget I put together to pull info from a Johns Hopkins University web app.

Updated program to allow specifying the refresh value.
no change to widget

It may be better to just add extra RSS feed urls to this and switch to the next url on refresh, ::) :`) I believe that would be less taxing on HG it certainly would take up less real estate.

I see I'm going to have to totaly re work this program from the ground up inorder for it to do what I want  (cB)
Currently you can only use this for one RSS feed at a time. I see now I'll  want at least 3 feeds maybe even up to 5. This requires the creation of virtual modules and the use of Features instead of Options like the Camera program uses. This part is simple enough I just can't remember how I did it ::) :`) Looking over the cammera code I can get the virtual modules and Features created and access them from each new widget however I can't yet wrap my head arround how to pull in the Features into the code. I just keep going in circles  (DH)

I changed to look a bit and managed to get the feed to auto update.
I'm still playing with ways to hide the scroll bar but still allowing scrolling. As well still looking for away to auto scroll through the feed contents.
