By the author of Ubiquitous Player:

I've decided to stop updating this program. In 3 years I received exactly zero feedback on it, so I guess no one really uses it.

Thanks.

shnbwmn on 2016-05-17 21:37

So ... is this program being actively developed again now?

MIKLO on 2016-08-23 14:32

WOW this is still being updated I'm surprised but anytime someone is willing to improve their software 4me its a good thing. I used this some time back it does a lot of things but to me is just way to busy although it did work well when I used. :)

DxWnd v2.04.46 Updated

billon on 20 Sep 2017
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Sep 2017

DxWnd lets you run many applications that default to fullscreen in a window, ideal for games. The program is a Win32 "hooker" program that intercepts and alters the behavior of window messages and APIs. It picks up events and injects code into the configured tasks to run fullscreen programs in a windowed environment while maintaining expected behavior.

Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

refack on 2017-04-22 14:53

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Midas on 2017-07-04 10:04

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.

link: thanks, updated

Apparently UniExtract got into an infinite loop when I tried to extract the installer. I have edited the instructions a bit.

lintalist on 2015-04-27 12:36

For v2.5.0: I don't think civclient.exe is present anymore and it should now be freeciv-gtk2.cmd or freeciv-gtk2.exe which would start the game.

@smaragdus: for the time being, and in view of the rapid shifting of versions and licenses, I think the best bet is with no strings attached ClipDiary Free. Having said that, I have no objection if anyone (including you) makes the change you requested. I have a Personal and a GAotD key, both free, so the commercial version is my preferred ATM...

smaragdus on 2016-09-17 14:56

The last version of Clipdiary which works with Windows XP is 3.9 and it (both the installer and the archive) can be downloaded at the download section of Clipdiary web-site:
