There seems to be a bug with v0.46.

The right mouse buttons get inverted.
I have to close down EitherMouse and restart it to fix the problem.

alright barely tested, and i was already hacking away at the code in a cleanup effort, so there could very well be more bugs to deal with (and i might have broke the Hotkey [old] method)

EitherMouse.exe version 0.47
<!-- m -->http://www.EitherMouse.com<!-- m -->


thanks again for the bug report... any more greatly appreciated

Fantastic, gwarble.

I will check it out properly and let you know of any issues.

By the way.
Now that the settings are stored in the registry, does the uninstaller remove all entries from the registry?

thanks for the reminder...

"Clear settings..." from the tray menu (and then exiting within 15 seconds so they don't save again) and deleting EitherMouse.exe should effectively uninstall it
if anything went wrong, you may have to reset your settings in "Mouse properties" to complete an "uninstall"


would a proper installer be better? or an ahk written installer (my preference) but seperate from the actual EitherMouse.exe?

also ini can be optional if ppl don't like the idea of writing to the registry

thanks again

oh, and i think the auto update routine is broken... so you may have to download one more time (after i fix it :)

I would prefer an ini over the registry.

K ill make it optional
Any reason? locally or in "Application Data"?

There are small annoyances with either, but saving data that the user shouldnt edit manually, and isnt portable by nature, seems most appropriate in the registry to me

also shouldnt conflict with anything unless another program uses "hkcu\software\EitherMouse"

I like small apps that use ini files stored locally in the program folder.

No biggie, I guess. But if I have the choice, I would choose that.
Cleaner, in my opinion.

D'oh, that must be UrlDownloadToVar error used for auto update i just added

Was it on first load or after running for 8hrs?


I hear ya about inis, historically thats what i prefer, but as im trying to create a "real application" i'll leave ini as an option as its dated methodology

Oh, OK.

It was actually after computer was woken from sleep.
Other apps don't show an error after computer is woken from sleep, but other apps have auto update functionality.

You might need something to stop that when computer sleeps.

Can you put an option to turn the update check off?

I am getting errors here at work similar to the other one posted as soon as v0.491 starts up.
I will also try to it later at home.
