SUMMARY: This doesn't do
anything except display an explorer-like view of your cacheable apps. This is a proof-of-concept to (a) demonstrate that the project really isn't dead, and (b) get any critical feedback on crashes or unhandled exceptions in the core startup logic.
cracked the mystery of how to populate the list of processes into the Windows Presentation Foundation-based UI. This has been a problem for me for months
, and I really began to wonder if I'd ever figure out how to do this. Since the next version release is so
late (at least based on user interest and my own perception of how long this should
have taken), I'd rather get a proof-of-concept release available now, than wait potentially weeks or months more
while I get the user interaction logic worked out.
Requirements: .NET Framework 4 (Client Profile or full install)
Time to launch: for most well-used Windows systems, 30-60 seconds is the current time from double-click to visible User Interface
I already know:
- the menu options don't work
- the Save button doesn't do anything
- there are no checkboxes to select/deselect which apps you want to cache
So yes, this doesn't really move the ball forward as far as "can I safely reboot my box?" For that, please continue to use the v1.2 release.
But if you've wondered if this project would ever
show results again, this is a "yes" answer. More to come soon (now that I've got a real working model to debug).
