Can't execute internet explorer and inkball on new desktop in vista

Hi all, I tried to execute internet explorer and inkball on new desktop in vista,but it didn't work with error messages 'You must be an administrator to open Internet Explorer on this desktop. To open Internet Explorer, right-click the Internet Explorer icon, and the click "Run as administrator"' for internet explorer and 'InkBall is not working on your computer right now. Restart your computer and then try again. If the problem persists, contact your system administrator.' for InkBall. I could execute both programs normally on default desktop. Here's my code : program launcher; {$APPTYPE CONSOLE} uses SysUtils, windows; var hOriginalThread : HDesk; hOriginalInput : HDesk; hNewDesktop : HDesk; ProcessInfo : TProcessInformation; aAppName : string; StartupInfo : TStartupInfo; sa : TSecurityAttributes; begin hOriginalThread := GetThreadDesktop(GetCurrentThreadId()); hOriginalInput := OpenInputDesktop(0, FALSE,GENERIC_ALL); hNewDesktop := CreateDesktop('vstDesktop', nil, nil, 0, GENERIC_ALL, nil); SetThreadDesktop(hNewDesktop); SwitchDesktop(hNewDesktop); FillChar(StartupInfo,Sizeof(StartupInfo),#0); StartupInfo.cb := Sizeof(StartupInfo); StartupInfo.dwFlags := STARTF_USESHOWWINDOW; StartupInfo.wShowWindow := SW_SHOW; StartupInfo.lpDesktop := 'vstDesktop'; CreateProcess(nil, 'c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe', nil, nil, false, NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS, nil, nil,StartupInfo, ProcessInfo); if ProcessInfo.hProcess 0 then begin WaitForSingleObject(ProcessInfo.hProcess, INFINITE); CloseHandle(ProcessInfo.hProcess); ProcessInfo.hProcess := 0; end; FillChar(StartupInfo,Sizeof(StartupInfo),#0); StartupInfo.cb := Sizeof(StartupInfo); StartupInfo.dwFlags := STARTF_USESHOWWINDOW; StartupInfo.wShowWindow := SW_SHOW; StartupInfo.lpDesktop := 'vstDesktop'; CreateProcess(nil, 'c:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\inkball\inkball.exe', nil, nil, false, NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS, nil, nil,StartupInfo, ProcessInfo); if ProcessInfo.hProcess 0 then begin WaitForSingleObject(ProcessInfo.hProcess, INFINITE); CloseHandle(ProcessInfo.hProcess); ProcessInfo.hProcess := 0; end; // Restore original desktop SwitchDesktop(hOriginalInput); SetThreadDesktop(hOriginalThread); // Close the Desktop CloseDesktop(hNewDesktop); end. What could be wrong

2007 vista aeroglass support? something missing...

, Ok... I played with doing some glass forms over the weekend and while its easy to extend glass beyond the border of a frame.. what good is it... if you place buttons, labels, etc on the form they dont draw correctly. Searching the internet for solutions i read that it has something to do with delphi not using gdi+ or having support for WPF for drawing on the forms correctly. Will D2008 correct this or am i missing something obvious.

anyone can help? delphi 7 TADOTable cannot connect to 400 columns excel

I use a TADOConnection (e.g. connection1) to connect a Excel 2007 file with about 400 columns in a worksheet, using the following connectionString: Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=D:\temp\exportFG.xlsx;Extended Properties="Excel 12.0;HDR=YES;" when I set the connected properties to true, no error occur. but when i put a TADOTable and set its connection to connection1, tableDirect = true, only 256 columns can be retrieved!! is this a limitation in Delphi 7 components (I know before Excel 2007, a worksheet has maximum 256 columns only) I am using Delphi 7.

word to int64 bug (delphi6)

if you assign "-" of a word-Variable to an int64 one, you get unexpectet results: var aWord:word; ainteger:integer; AInt64:int64; begin aWord:=2; aInteger:=2; AInt64:=-aWord; writeln(inttostr(AInt64)); //you get 4294967294 instead of -2 AInt64:=0-aWord; writeln(inttostr(AInt64)); //-2 AInt64:=-int64(aWord); writeln(inttostr(AInt64)); //-2 AInt64:=-aInteger; writeln(inttostr(AInt64)); //-2 end. I suppose this to be a bug in Delphi 6. Is this still there in Delphi 2007,2008,...

Re: delphi without dfm

Francisco Sanchez wrote: > > > we have a library which does exactly that: compresses, encrypts and > obfuscates dfms. It's called Citadel (http://www.billeniumsoft.com) Very Interesting. Are there any known issues (Vista etc) Can the component be used for encrypting other resources (such as bitmaps, incorporated into the executable using $R) as well Also, I notice the latest version is for Delphi 2006, not 2007. Will this component also support Delphi 2008 etc -- Arthur Hoornweg (In order to reply per e-mail, please just remove the ".net" from my e-mail address. Leave the rest of the address intact including the "antispam" part. I had to take this measure to counteract unsollicited mail.)
