Actual source for DisableAlignPropertyEditor

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/30

Since Uwe Schuster only published a screenshot, I NewOCR-ed it and created the accompanying .dproj file (only because it’s an easy way for the DLL to require the designide package so you can use the DesignIntf and ToolsAPI units.

Uwe only posted these:

Anyway, the sources are at gist.github.com/881d4eacbcec2a9e1e6b0181f900fd7a, but the main source is this:

library DisableAlignPropertyEditor;

When AQTime thinks it’s running during install and aborts installation

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/29

I had this warning (which is actually an error: you cannot continue as pressing OK would get you the same warning over and over again) during AQTime installation a while ago:

---------------------------
WARNING !
---------------------------
Setup has detected AQtime running on your computer. You must close the application and press OK to continue.

Press Cancel to abort installation.
---------------------------
OK   Cancel
---------------------------

Back then:

  1. I was Administrator
  2. The Installer download was from http://downloads.smartbear.com/AQtime.exe
  3. The embedded version was 8.50.1720
  4. It did successfully extract the AQtime.msi before bailing out

The fix (from SmartBear support) was remarkably simple, so I was surprised I could not find it online:

If your downloaded, saved AQtime installation package is named AQtime.exe, rename it: (ex: AQtime850.exe and you should then be able to complete the installation process.

So basically renaming AQTime.exe into AQTime850.exe allowed it to install.

james-atkinson/speedcomplainer: A python app that will test your internet connection and then complain to your service provider (and log to a data store if you’d like)

Cool: james-atkinson/speedcomplainer: A python app that will test your internet connection and then complain to your service provider (and log to a data store if you’d like)

It can auto-tweet your status to an ISP.
