    Screenshots for v1.10.





    Instead of using black for the background, would it be possible to make it translucent on Vista/7 (i.e. use Glass)?

    Not really sure on how to achieve that, but I can give it a go.

    Not sure how it will work for the controls but if you select the form --> properties window --> there is an option for translucency / transparency

    Just change or adjust the percentage value, lower percentage is more translucent where as higher is less see through ( if that makes sense )

    It will only do it when you run the project or launch the app not in design mode / view

    Didn't realise that until your second comment but yeah looks like Shielder beat me to the punch line lol

    Enjoy

    Updates

    Background is "transparent" according to Visual Studio 2010
    Custom Proxies can be added along with the preset ones

    *edit* uploaded correct version! lol

    New screenshot...



    I don't know if this helps, but this is how you do translucency in C#...

    One reason I thought I would mention the DPI is because it's not unusual to find staff computers which have it set to > 96.

    looks good
    A few problems I seem to have.

    Windows 6 x64 OS

    EduGod crashes with this message when I click the following buttons
    Defrag, System restore, Presentation manager (What is this?), msconfig, printer migration and component services.




    The pre-made proxy settings dont seem to work for me either. I click the embc one for example and no message appears and my proxy settings in IE9 havent changed.

    Here's how it looks for me

    Its not yet designed for 64bit...I am going to finish up the 32bit version before cracking on with 64bit....

    As for the coding language, I am not using C or any of its variants. I want the coding kept to myself and @Steve21 for the time being

    I think translucency is a bit more difficult in Visual Basic...

    http://www.danielmoth.com/Blog/vb6-d...-on-vista.aspx

    Also, instead of hard-coding paths could you simply run them by calling the EXE?

    Code:
    Process.Start("mstsc.exe");
    rather than

    Code:
    Interaction.Shell("C:\\Windows\\System32\\mstsc.exe", AppWinStyle.MinimizedFocus, false, -1);

    Instead of coding two just make it check what bit then use those links. Then both will work.
