Re: After Ctl+Alt+Delete is pressed, continous Alt key is sent

On my Seven machine, if the MultiKey console window have focus, the LeftMenu(Alt) pushed key down is detected, the going up key release is not always detected, probably because it occur while the ctrl-alt-del screen is active and it's a barrier to MultiKey. If the focus is on another window, the Lef...

Re: How to determine is string is UTF-8 encoded

>> " that function only indicates that a string is unicode " Hey Paul, Yep, in fact, "try to indicates" would be even more appropriate. I posted it because several ideas may be extracted from it to help testing a string for the unicode side. And sometime doing some eliminations a...

Re: detecting windows SMB feature + 1 more

Hi MrSwiss, Yes, I use UltraEdit and those two lines are for my own pre-compiler tool. I find it more logic to have the compiler selection and options embedded in the source code. So when I got ten or fifteen files in the editor, there is no need to change any options in the editor. I just hit "...

One way to find it could be by using NetWkstaGetInfo() to retreive those both Client and Server version and then deduct the SMB version that will be used.
