    So I set scale to 0 for my surface and now with a second monitor attached it really scaled out weird.

    Also with the scale enabled the nav button works properly again as well.

    I did and I cannot believe that slipped my mind as I recall you originally mentioning that I was like yes, that sound like something to look at. But now with that enabled it is not loading 100%. 🙁

    Any ETA on the updated version for DPI? Today is the first day I am using the laptop without a external monitor and its not displaying correctly. Also every time I click a nav button it stretches across the screen until such a time I have to kill it in taskmgr to restart it.
    resolution is set to 3000×2000 (recommended) and dpi is at 200% (recommended).

    Luckily we do not yet have many Microsoft based units but that number will be growing.

    in reply to: Unable to get OEMINFO #4252

    I’m grabbing data like this:

    # Start Lenovo units need this line
    #WMI=color:ffffff,Text:Model Name,namespace:root\cimv2,query:Win32_ComputerSystemProduct,display:%Version%
    # End Lenovo units need this line
    WMI=color:ffffff,Text:Model Number,namespace:root\cimv2,query:Win32_ComputerSystem,display:%Model%
    WMI=color:ffffff,Text:Serial Number,namespace:root\cimv2,query:Win32_Bios,display:%SerialNumber%

    our oeminfo is modified with corporate info and computer info does not exist there anymore so we use the WMI method, works every time.

    On my 64bit pc all our info is here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation

    and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation is empty

    hope that helps.

    I had not noticed it until your post and I think it may only be the released version of di. I will have to compare. All 3.x versions open up and are not where I am telling them to be. Once I switch to a different page it shows up normal and in the corner where I want it. I have attached my ini as well for ref.

    2.11.0 clearly does not like something in my ini for 3.0 but initial load is in the expected spot.

    resolution is 1920×1080 (recommended for the display I am using)
    scale is 100%

    Pics are from WIN11 Dev but also compared to my other win 10 machines and all have the same results.

    is 3.0.0 a2 still the latest version?

    in reply to: Desktop Info 64-bit Development #4004

    Just now noticed your post regarding battery and the use of <null> and

    set=key:battery<null>,value:Not in use

    was the ticket!!! 🙂

    in reply to: Desktop Info 64-bit Development #4003

    As to battery, I ran a generic wmic lookup and added every entry to my ini file so i could really see what is happening. Just need to setup all of them to display yet. here is what wmic pulled out:

    # battery status lookup table
    set=key:battery,value:Not in use (this is a best guess as battery0 did nothing)
    set=key:battery1,value:Charge Left
    set=key:battery2,value:AC Connected
    set=key:battery3,value:Fully Charged
    set=key:battery7,value:Charging and High
    set=key:battery8,value:Charging and Low
    set=key:battery9,value:Charging and Critical
    set=key:battery11,value:Partially Charged

    as to positioning, this only happens with nav enabled and only on the new version as I have not tried it with 2.10 yet. Here is my setup for that:

    # position on the screen

    Still getting my ini ironed out. Our help desk would like it to be a bit smaller so I am working on using pages. One thing I noticed is that the DOAMIN item is not populating the info and when I switch from page to page it is not staying in the location I have told it to. It bounces around the screen in to different locations, not all the time but most times. I am thinking its because its working on populating that page and once it has data it seems to stay put. Other than that it seems to be working well.

    I liked the idea of the firewall showing as active or inactive but being that we are using group policy for that the built-in locations will not work. Here is what I had to do, I also added Secureboot as our security team has it as a requirement, not that we should have issues but with win 7 to win 7 upgrades many still do not have this enabled.

    # Windows firewall status (GPO Based)
    REGISTRY=interval:600,tree:0,text:Domain Firewall,key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\DomainProfile\EnableFirewall,display:Status: %1[b:Active:Not Active]
    REGISTRY=interval:600,tree:0,text:Private Firewall,key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\PrivateProfile\EnableFirewall,display:Status: %1[b:Active:Not Active]
    REGISTRY=interval:600,tree:0,text:Public Firewall,key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\PublicProfile\EnableFirewall,display:Status: %1[b:Active:Not Active]

    #Secureboot/UEFI status
    REGISTRY=interval:600,tree:0,text:Secure Boot Status,key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecureBoot\State\UEFISecureBootEnabled,display:%1[b:Enabled:Disabled]

    I am still working on trying to get the battery item to work when not plugged in and there is more than 1 battery but that is not a result of this new version that was happening previously as well. that is not at all a big deal just something I THINK people would like but that is just me.

    Thanks Glenn for ALL your great hard work on this toolset! 🙂
