hello Ukko Smiley Happy couldn't it be related to Windows libraries on your side ?

I do not know.. : ) : (

but all of this? or only some of points (delay when opening ;; pixeled logo ;; resizable window)?

Re: FS Protection PC 17.6 releases

you are right, it's a trifle too much, why not uninstall FS, clean the registry and leftovers, then reinstall... but it might be a windows deeper bug,  who knows ? it's worth investigating a bit.

yes, probably, I will try to reinstall as further checks.

although, pixeled logo and resizable window are likely expected temporary things (but I did not check situation with any other system yet).

(just as clarification) what about "delay" - it is not really a delay maybe. This delay is about two seconds maybe (but it is, virtually, more than before). and first opening window was with much visible delay.


Thanks!

Re: FS Protection PC 17.6 releases

"delays" may vary broadly due to context. Pls inform us when/how it is solved.

Hello,

 

Fresh "About" from beta 2 is beauty and with an interesting view! Only three points maybe with a strange state (most likely it is temporary):

-> window  opens with a delay (more than before) a little be. And the first try to open the window was with quite noticeable delay.

-> too resizable. at least, I do not feel if too minimized view is suitable for something. But maximized view and just ability to resize is pretty!

-> title (left top corner) picture logo is too pixeled probably. // added: logo on taskbar is also too pixeled for that window (at least, as common feelings and compared to other windows)

 

Thanks for the release!


Hi @Ukko

 

The delay is caused by .NET and we will have to see if there is anything we can do about it. Maybe not. The resizability is a matter of taste, personally I think it's fine, you can resize it down so that you only see the product name. Pixelated logo is a known issue and will be fixed in upcoming releases.

 

Regarding .NET. The plan is to gradually (this will take quite long time) migrate all dialogs from Qt to .NET. With our Qt implementation the user interface is running in the background all the time, so when you want to open any dialog, it just makes it visible. That makes the dialog appear fast. The drawback of that is that it uses ~150MB of memory all the time, even if you would never open any dialog. (We do some tricks to make most of this memory to be swapped out, but it still needs to be loaded from disk and potentially swapped back in) With .NET this changes: each dialog is separate executable. It will only use memory when the dialog is open, the drawback is that opening takes longer time. Since most of the time users don't need to open user interface, this is direction we are taking.

 

Some other benefits of .NET are: making dialogs resizable is very easy, multiple monitor DPI scaling should work properly and accessibility features can be better supported.

Hello,

 

Thanks for your answer, explanation and response!

I also feel OK about it. Ability to resize window is fine. And ability to maximize window is a pretty.

 

Ability to receive too small window is only strange (just because I do not know when possible to receive such window based on autodecision; and I am not sure if it is helpful for anything); Although, state when only the product name visible is good too (as with too small blockpage window for websites - where only title is visible) - but with the states before this the text is not always fully visible.

 

Also,  I like .NET opprotunity.

 

Thanks!

Re: FS Protection PC 17.6 releases

Did anyone else notice installation files (.NET?) created under system drive root?

In my case, C:\

 

Or was it coincidence (some other installer did it)? I suspect the latter case.
