Home Server Status

Recommended Posts

Same here, love the product! PayPal payment worked (got registration key within a few hours).

 

And it's so nice to see the changing tray icon during backups, and I too can now use Windows msconfig.exe to keep Microsoft LaunchPad from auto-starting with Windows.

 

But like JerryW, I'm also a 125% font user (family room PC hooked up to 55" screen at 1920x1080, and 15.8" laptop at 1920x1080)), so I have the same minor nit about formatting, including the font being cut off as the tray icon tries to paint the percentage complete number over it's icon.

 

FYI, the "Register Home Server Status" screen has similar font cut-off issues as well.

Here's a couple more relevant screenshots.

 

First, here's a view of msconfig, where I stop the autostart of LaunchPad (since I seem to be able to do all the same stuff from your add-in, I don't see any good reason not to do this):

Next, here's a shot that shows the font cut-off issue for the percentage complete icon overlay (when font size is at 125%):

I should mention that your Add-in works great with Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials, which is very much appreciated!

Ok, before I go and recompile a new install, will someone with the DPI issue please try the new .exe file for me? The download link is here: http://db.tt/hUt2RSs

 

All you need to do is replace your existing Home Server Status.exe file located in your C:\Program Files (x86)\Home Server Status folder and then run the application.

 

If you DO NOT have any DPI issues, ie: running at default, then no need to worry with this!

 

Please let me know your results, as the file will only be available for 24 hours and then will be removed.

 

 

** I do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I want the HSS experience to be as good as I can get it.

Jerry...I appreciate the super fast follow-ups. Knowing any issues that come up will be handled quickly is comforting.

I haven't heard from anyone regarding the updated .exe file posted above. So, I will leave the link up for an additional 24 hours so someone can download and test. It works fine on my end at different DPI and resolutions.

I was going to try it but my 2011 mobo seems to have died. All I get now is the AMI BIOS beep: 1 long, 3 short = memory fault. I've tried several different configs of RAM with no luck, so I guess it's the controller itself. Sigh, time to buy another mobo and processor.

 

Edit: nuts, no one in my area has sandy bridge i3 chips in stock.

 

sorry for the post hijack.

Ok folks. HSS v2.02 has been added to the download sections.

 

Change Log:

 

FIXED: DPI cosmetics (Hopefully!)

 

ADDED: Ability to input switches for additional menu items (Small addition but I was asked for it)

 

Input I have received on my end was good. So, I felt I could go ahead and release v2.02.

 

Have a good labor day and we will talk afterward.

Hi Jerry,

I've had the HSS app crash on me twice ver 2.02

I'm running the app in the system tray. Started the backup last night and the icon went blue with 1% progress. All good.

Checked it this morning and the status was green. (should be blue)

Ran the WHS dashboard and it was still backing up at 83%.

Clicked on the HSS icon in the tray and clicked on the "Add Icon" for Choose Your Server icon. The app froze then crashed. Windows reported a error and closed the icon in the tray.

Restarted the HSS app and let my system continue witht he backup.

Checked/clicked the HSS icon and it crashed.

Here are the details

************** JIT Debugging **************

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

application or computer (machine.config) must have the

jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

The application must also be compiled with debugging

enabled.

For example:

<configuration>

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

rather than be handled by this dialog box.

 

I can get you the event log from this morning if it helps?
