Dansposé 1.1 Installer Update

July 29th, 2007

After a number of failed installations with Visual Studio’s built-in setup engine, I’ve taken a friend‘s advice and tried out the script-based, open-source software InnoSetup. It’s an easy-to-use program that let me quickly select all the options I wanted for the installer and spit out a setup executable that hasn’t had any of the old problems. InnoSetup also made it much simpler (checkbox option) to implement the “run-on-install” feature that I had to code by hand under VS’s setup engine.

You can get the slick new InnoSetup installer for Dansposé 1.1 right here.

    I really like InnoSetup, as I have always been a fan of stand alone installers. I have used NSIS in the past, but converted to InnSetup many years ago and have not looked back.

    Just started using Danspose and it is very good. No noticeable performance hit and uses WDM properly, unlike some others I tried. One issue I did find is that if there are no Windows open, the trigger switches to a black screen rather than the default desktop. No biggie, but it can be disconcerting if you have your start menu at the top of the screen and accidently hit trigger point.

    There’s a bug in the program…

    If you trigger Danspose right after you have just triggered Danspose and chosen a window, the window you chose stays in front, and Danspose is in the back. You either have to minimize your current window or click somewhere else.

    Another thing I would like to suggest that I have not seen in any Expose-like programs is the ability to trigger the Expose, and then cancel the trigger by triggering again (ie. If I had set my top right corner as the trigger spot, I should be able to move my mouse to the top right corner, allow Expose to show up, then move my mouse to the top right corner again while the Expose screen is there and cancel it.)

    Good program though, easy to use =]

    Oh, just found another one, if you bring up a windowthrough System tray, then instantly trigger Danspose right after, the window you just brought up stays in front.

    Really love this tool, but I would like to be able to close the view by hitting F9 again, rather than having to click a window.
