Here is the latest remastered version of ViOrb. This is an update from Build 913 Usually i don't release alpha builds to the public but i decided to make this build open to get bug reports faster. (Please submit bugs in this topic). The reason its called "Re Mastered" is because it has been completely rewritten. This build is not associated with ViOrb 2.4 If you have a bug with another version of ViOrb submit it in the ViOrb bugs thread. To quit the remasterd version right click the Orb then press "ESC" or Alt+F4

Extract the contents of the zip file
Double click the ViOrb Remastered Executable
Report bugs in this board

Purposed Bugs Fixed:
  • Full Screen (EVERYTHING)

I just downloaded and installed build 919, and woo-hoo!!   Everything seems to be fixed with the game issues.  It's working great so far, and it is very responsive.   I'll keep you updated on any changes or mysterious bugs that may arise.  Thanks again, and as always, excellent work!!

Hipy, can you tell me exactly what programs you have running at that time?
Also define "Crash", Everything closes does it (without an error message ?) ?

Both remastered versions crash my explorer complete. The only way to shutdown the system is the powerbutton. Returned to ViOrb 2.4

I have had the same problem. After clicking the ViOrb, and then clicking anywhere else, a message box comes up saying "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. If you have any unsaved data, it may be lost." or something of the like. Then, the explorer.exe process terminates and restarts. I have not tested what happens to the ViOrb, as I closed it with Esc, but I suspect it will be left intact.

If you do not seem to be getting this issue, I publish some system data:

OS Name   Microsoft Windows XP Professional

System Manufacturer   Hewlett-Packard
System Model   Pavilion ze4500 (DM756A)

I am trying to replicate the error, I have tried on several VPC's (Win XP Sp3 x86). However i dont seem to get it. Do perhaps have WindowsBlinds or any desktop customisation software (This does not include Visual themes) ?

maybe you should try some of these. I think i got the dont send message but i dont really remember.
Vistart, Truetransperancy, transbar, styler, desktopX object, IE7, abd windows live messenger
hope they help

Also i noticed while using the remastered version of viorb, vistart menu comes up quicker when you press the start button. if you use the beta 2.4 i think it is, vistart comes up slowly. Im not sure about everyone else, but thats wat happens to me.

Hi,
I had the same problem dree12 has.
my system:
OS Name   Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Version   5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
System Manufacturer   Self build
System Type   X86-based PC
Processor   AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core 3600+ 1.9 GHz, 1Gb RAM
BIOS Version Award (08/22/06)
Memory   DIMM1: Kingston 9905316-005.A04LF  1 Gb DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM 
Total Virtual Memory   2.00 GB
Other running programs: Internet Explorer, ViStart, Outlook 2007

The issue happens most often when you use the [Windows] E shortcut to open an explorer window. In fact, when you try to use it. This makes me think (which is not going to help you) that it may also be related to Vistart. Other "crashes" (explorer closing) come from the quick launch bar "hopping" right and left. The Viorb being smaller than the original Start button, the quick launch bar tries to stick to the viorb, but doesn't always succeed, resulting in an explorer "crash".
This 919 version seems to compensate at least that issue.

btw this it not a system I play games with. Software most often used is: Visual Studio 2008, Office 2007.
If you need any specs...

Hi, Im new to this software. About a Week.  Grin
Ive Noticed that both ViOrb 2.4 and Remastered ViOrb 919 'f**ks up' with TrueTransparency.
What happens is:
Click on Start( The Orb), It Repeatedly flashes, then Nothing Happens.
The effect is worse on Remastered ViOrb

Hopefully you can fix it. Wink

BTW: I Use XP Pro SP3

For that you need to add ViOrb to the exception List of TrueTransparency. "ViOrb_Win" is the window class name and it has no window name.
Also please try the latest remastered build 938 to fix the ViOrb not responding bug. [Build 939]
